Water is placed in the the top container, shaped like an inverted bell, which houses the ceramic filter which has a nozzle protruding through a small hole into the main body of the purifier. Water is filtered in three ways. Initially the water must pass through a micro porous ceramic material which filters out sediment, suspended solids and amoeba down to one micron.
Next the water passes through the inside of the filter containing a granular activated carbon core filtering out unwanted impurities such as chlorine, metals and pesticides. Finally the water passes through the internal walls of the filter which have been coated with an antibacterial treatment of silver nitrate which acts as a natural biocide preventing bacteria from breeding and eradicating Giardia and Cryptosporidium.
This design prevents any overflow problems common with two part systems. Each purifier is hand made on the potter's wheel and individually decorated in a variety of colours, many of which are uniquely Australian.
The purifier is fired to stoneware temperature of 1305 centigrade making it the perfect non toxic material to filter and store drinking water. Firing at this high temperature ensures your water purifier is waterproof and extremely resilient to cracking, crazing and chipping.
Unlike terracotta and earthenware systems, our stoneware system will not grow mould, become stained, deteriorate with age or leave a clay taste in your water. The inside of the purifier is glazed allowing ease of cleaning.
No fumes are given off as with plastics or metals allowing safer long storage. The insulating properties of stoneware will help keep your water naturally cool for drinking and ice may be added to the container for chilled water.
