PARTICULATE SCRUB

Aliases: Sediment Filtration

Overview

This filter is designed for the reduction and removal of sediment, such as dirt, sand, and other particles that may cause cloudiness.

How It Works

Water that appears cloudy or turbid is caused by particulates (such as rust, sand, or clay) found in the water. Sediment filters remove these particulates from water by trapping them.

Compliance

Manufactured from FDA compliant materials. This cartridge is suitable for water purification in all home, commercial, and foodservice applications.

Details

The sediment filter is a retreated filter which removes ordinary sediments (clay, rust, sand, dirt, etc.) in the water through 1-10 micron (1/1,000mm) pores. The sediment filter cartridge is easy to change, creates a visual change, and provides high reliability.

 

Sediment Filter manufactured with PP material collects and eliminates significant volume of pollutants by the maximization of pore volume through multiple fiber layer structure of minute RP fiber, and has chemical durability for various chemicals and thermal resistance in view of the characteristics of PP materials.It also gives longer life to pre-carbon filter that absorbs chlorine, fluoride, undesirable taste and bad odor in water.

Overview

This filter is designed for the elimination of chlorine, lead, and organic contaminants, to remove odors, and improve of taste.

How It Works

Carbon filtering is a method of filtration that uses a bed of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities, using chemical adsorption. Active charcoal carbon filters are most effective at removing chlorine, sediment, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), taste and odor from water.ment filters remove these particulates from water by trapping them.

Details

Pre-carbon filter is composed of high-performance activated carbon that removes 99% of all chlorine, lead, dissolved Trichloromethane, odor, microbial cysts, organic contaminants, pesticides and chemicals that affect taste and odor.

ULTRA SCRUB

Aliases: Ultra Membrane Filtration (UF)

Overview

This filter is designed to prevent the propagation of germs, and eliminate odor, bad taste, and color matter melted into your water. Eliminates water contaminants including: microorganisms and harmful organic chemicals.

How It Works

Ultrafiltration (UF) is a membrane separation process that allows removal of suspended solids based upon (0.01 micron) pore size.

RO SCRUB

Aliases: Reverse Osmosis Membrane (RO Membrane)

Overview

Reverse osmosis is the most powerful type of water filtration commercially available, and ours utilizes the world’s leading RO element. It is designed to prevent the propagation of germs, and eliminate water contaminants such as microorganisms, harmful organic chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and radioactive materials, as well as salt, iron, fluoride, lead, bacteria, odor, bad taste, and color matter melted into your water.

How It Works

RO uses pressure to force water with a high concentration of a contaminant through a semipermeable membrane. The water can pass back through the membrane, but the contaminant cannot, thus removing the contaminant from the water.

Details

RO Membrane Filter eliminates all pollutants such as heavy metals, virus, bacteria and organic chemicals through stomata with the size of 0.0001 um, which is 1/1,000,000 of the thickness of human hair. The membrane element is supplied in dry condition to have more shelf life (12 months). To maintain the highest quality standards, the thin film of membrane sheet is manufactured through an automated process, by DOW Chemical in the United States. The results in more stable, longer lasting elements.

ULTRAVI SCRUB

Aliases: Ultra Violet Light Sterilization (UV)

Overview

This filter is designed to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, including: cryptosporidium, Hepatitis-A, Polio, Streptococcus, Adenovirus, E.Coli, Rotavirus, and Giardia.

How It Works

Ultraviolet light is one of nature’s most powerful disinfectants. Used at the right wavelength and intensity, UV light can destroy microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses. The water flows around a clear UV bulb, and the light destroys the genetic material of the pathogens, thus preventing it from reproducing. The efficiency of any UV system is affected by the clarity of the incoming water supply, which is why we treat your water to remove solid particles through filtration prior to treatment via the UV system.

Details

UV water disinfection is the most potent approach for eliminating bacteria from the water. Harmful pathogens in your home’s water are penetrated by the ultraviolet rays, and destroy illness-causing microorganisms by attacking them at their genetic core (DNA), eliminating their ability to reproduce. Purifying your water with UV light is not only very simple and effective, but it is also environmentally safe. UV light filters can destroy 99.99% of harmful microorganisms, while requiring no chemicals.

PH + ENRICH SCRUB

Aliases: PH W/MINERAL BOOST Filter (PH)

Overview

The ENRICH scrub adds a special blend of minerals for that pure, crisp, fresh taste. It is a specially designed mineral filter that provides essential minerals to our body. This is achieved by utilizing special formations of Calcium, Anti bacterial, Hydrogen Reducing, FIR (far infrared rays)  Mineral balls.

How It Works

PH filter Increases alkalinity levels  between 7.365ph  & 7.9+ to restore PH balance. Without a PH filter, acidic water will decrease hydration and slow metabolism. Drinking higher alkaline water contributes to more energy & improved hydration. PH also eliminates  bacteria in the tanks, lines and spigots as the water passes through a natural antiseptic and antibacterial process in the PH Filter.

Details

By removing harmful active oxygen(free radical), it is able to improve the effects of antioxidants, such as Vitamin C & E; enhance the bone regeneration,  as well affect some illnesses. It excels in the emission of FIR to activate your metabolism. It contains essential inorganic minerals, necessary to promote good health. The filter also increases the safety of your drinking water by working as an antibacterial agent & with a disinfecting silver (Ag 99%) .

Health Benefits

Provides trace amounts of mineral / nutrient boost of calcium and magnesium.

 

Drinkpod USA uses a revolutionary filter technology that increases alkalinity levels between 7.365ph & 7.9+ to restore PH balance. It also lowers the O.R.P(Oxygen Reduction Potential) to -250mv, exactly the same as what  a water ionizer that can costs thousands does! Essentially, what this filter does is adds beneficial minerals such as calcium, and magnesium, creating hydrogen rich water with anti-oxidants.It simply doesn’t get any healthier!
 

Product Hydrogen(H) and reduction to rise up Hydrogen ion density improvement of erase function to anti-oxidation by strengthening(-mV) with ORP Oxidation Reduction Potential.
