10L ULTRA SLIM WATER PURIFIER WITH A FLUORIDE PLUS FILTER
10L ULTRA SLIM WATER PURIFIER WITH A FLUORIDE PLUS FILTER
These systems filter out as much as 100% of impurities whether your water is municipally treated, tank water or from other sources, the following impurities are removed:
pathogenic bacteria, cysts including giardia, sediment, chloramines, chlorine, lead, fluoride, and heavy metals just to name a few.
Unlike distilled water and reverse osmosis, purified water using a carbon filter retains the natural energy vibrations and is recommended by Homeopaths and Natural Therapists: healthy minerals like calcium and magnesium are not removed.
The ceramic canisters are handmade in Australia, they can store up to 10L of purified water, and come in a variety of 12 colours. Included in the price is a 12 month filter and stainless steel tap.
These purifiers are completely handmade, so depending on the time of year your order can take anywhere between 2 - 6 weeks to be made, during peak season November - February they may take 8 - 12 weeks. Please ask us and we'll try our best to give you a closer approximate if needed.
We post Australia wide only, unfortunately we are not able to ship these internationally.
WHY YOUR TAP WATER NEEDS PURIFYING
Our bodies are at least 75% water. Adults should drink a minimum of 8 glasses of pure water per day to prevent dehydration. Water is essential for our bodies to function properly as it facilitates nutrient absorption and removal of wastes.
We have 10 times the amount of bacteria cells living in our body than human cells. Having an adequate amount of flora (friendly gut bacteria) helps us manage weight control, as well as producing human chemicals that harness energy and allow more absorption of nutrients from our food. We also know that a healthy gut means a healthy, strong immune system and it also prevents us from many digestive issues which we commonly hear about today, such as: gas, bloating, stomach pain, reflux, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Maintaining a well balanced and thriving inner ecosystem (inner gut) is vital in striving for optimum health, which means that having a good water purification system is absolutely crucial.
Tap water contains chlorine, which is designed to kill bad bacteria in our water supplies, however it also kills our good, friendly bacteria in our digestive track. Our water filters remove 99% of chlorine, as well as 99.99% of pathogenic bacteria (cholera, typhoid, salmonella, e. coli, fecal coliform), plus a lot more contaminants. The filters come in variety of 12 colours and are made from eco friendly stoneware, they are easy to maintain (requiring approximately only one filter change once yearly), they do not need any power source and keep your water at a pleasant cool room-temperate all year round.
SCP FLUORIDE PLUS™ FILTER FACT SHEET
SCP Fluoride Plus™
2000 litre or 6 to 12 months* / flow rate 1 litre per hour / 5 inch x 70mm wide
Fluoride Plus™ filter elements, manufactured in England and imported by Southern Cross Pottery, utilize a class leading silver impregnated ceramic micro porous outer shell combined with state of the art granular core technology which removes fluoride plus virtually all other contaminants.
Fluoride Plus™ is made from the highest quality NSF component certified (ANSI 61) coconut shell based activated carbon and other proprietary adsorbent materials. The ceramic shell and the granular carbon combines mechanical filtration and physical absorption processes to reduce a wide variety of drinking water contaminants of both aesthetic and health concerns. The pore structure of the ceramic enables sufficient contact time for the filter to be ideally suited to improving taste and odour as well as reducing chlorine, chloramine, volatile organic compounds, MTBE, lead, mercury, asbestos, arsenic and fluoride. The cleanable ceramic shell is designed to remove suspended solids, pathogenic bacteria and cysts. The Fluoride Plus filter has been tested in accordance with NSF protocols for cyst, turbidity, particulates, lead, chloramines and chlorine reduction.
Pathogenic bacteria 99.9999% (Alcontrol Laboratories)

HOW IT WORKS
Water is placed in the the top container that is shaped like an inverted bell, which houses the ceramic filter and has a nozzle protruding through a small hole into the main body of the purifier (see illustration).
Water is filtered in three ways.
The outer micro-porous ceramic wall screens the water down to one micron to remove up to 99.99% of bacteria and suspended solids. The tiny pores of the cermic make it
extremely efficient at removing particulate matter and fine sediment. The ceramic is also a highly effective barrier to bacterial pathogens and water-bourne cysts including e-coli, cryptosporidium, giardia and salmonella.
The water passes through the inner core of activated charcoal which removes chlorine, ammonia, fluoride and bad tastes and odors. Activated carbon works by attracting and holding certain chemicals as water passes through it; it is a highly porous material with an extremely high surface area for contaminant adsorption (adsorption is the
phenomenon whereby molecules adhere to a surface with which they come in contact).
The ceramic wall of this filter has been impregnated with silver ions to prevent the growth of bacteria in the filter itself and also in the stored water. The silver acts as a
natural biocide inhibiting microbiological growth meaning that there is no need to
sterilise the filter even when they are used over an extended period of time.
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. There is no electricity or plumbing and the purifier is small enough that it can be moved easily from room to room.
DIMENSIONS The Ultra Slim Purifier stores approx. 10L and measures approximately 200mm wide x 560mm high.
