Water is heavy and carting it about in bottles makes little sense from an ecological standpoint. Far better to filter water at the point of use after it has already been transported by water main.
The Water Gem does just this, filtering out the chlorine and any other chemicals your water has picked up during municipal water purification as well as any sand, sediment or rust from the pipes along the way. This method of obtaining clean, chlorine-free water is more cost efficient than a filter jug and are far more environmentally friendly than bottled water.
The filter cartridge is easily replaced with simple push-on connectors. Each filter lasts up to 6 months and we always have healthy stocks of replacement cartridges.
Domestic Reverse Osmosis System
Aqua Cure Scotland’s domestic reverse osmosis system offers 4 stages of filtration: a dirt/sediment pre-filter, a carbon pre-filter, a reverse osmosis membrane and a post polishing filter.
The unit has a 9 litre storage tank; when you draw water from the system the final post filter comes into action to polish off any residual taste / odour in the water as it leaves the tank.
This system comes with a full installation kit which includes a saddle valve, tubing, module, tank and tap – everything you need for a D.I.Y. installation (though we would recommend the assistance of a plumber to install any reverse osmosis system).
The main benefits of treatment by reverse osmosis:
- Up to 98% rejection of all contaminants.
- Removes 99%+ bacteria.
- Removes scale and hardness.
- Simple & quick filter changes.
- Inexpensive to run at less than 2p per litre.
The system can supply up to 50 US gallons per day and 3 bar of mains water pressure is required for the unit to operate.
