The Phox alkaline water filter has a five-stage filtration process with each layer adding to the quality and taste of the water.
Layer 1 of our Alkaline Water Filter:
The first layer consists of non-woven fabrics which remove any solid substances like rust, mud or soil from the water. Despite the fact that much of the our tap water systems in the developed world have already removed elements such as mud and soil to meet water quality standards, this first layer is an important first step in the filtration process because it removes the most basic unwanted contaminants should they be present.
Layer 2 of our Alkaline Water Filter:
The second layer of the filter is made up of alkaline mineral balls. This is the section of the filter that enhances the pH level of the water.
Layer 3 of our Alkaline Water Filter:
The third layer is a National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certified activated carbon layer. This is the part of the filter which absorbs the chlorine and eliminates heavy metals, chemicals, pesticides and the odour of normal tap water. This filters to micron size of 0.5, meaning a good standard of removal on things like micro plastics. This makes the water both clearer and cleaner while enhancing the taste.
Layer 4 of our Alkaline Water Filter:
The fourth layer of the filter is NSF certified ION exchange resins. These adjust the calcium and magnesium content which softens the water, removing any hardness found in tap water and giving it a refreshing, smooth texture.
Layer 5 of our Alkaline Water Filter:
The final layer of the filter is filled with infrared energy balls. These increase the oxygen content of the water, add some trace minerals and remove bacteria.
PLEASE NOTE: Phox Water was formerly Kinetic Water. All our filter cartridges are compatible with both jugs.
