3 Stage Filtration
Excellent at removing Sand, Silt, rust, and pipe turbidity that is found in municipal tap water sources across the Globe.
1 Micron G.A.C (Granulated Activated Carbon) filter:
This stage does a lot of the dirty work by removing toxic constituents such as Chlorine, Benzene, Pesticides, and Insecticides. The carbon materials used in our products are of the highest quality. They are purchased from the Calgon Carbon Company in Pittsburgh, PA. Who is the Global Leader in the manufacturing of carbon absorbing materials? The NSF has certified all Carbon materials used in our products.
Block Carbon Odor and Taste filter:
This filter utilizes proprietary carbon block technology to ensure that 99% of all chlorine, lead, and microbial cysts have been removed. This filter is also responsible for the delicious, and refreshing taste of all water that is dispensed from any of International H2O’s products.
Reverse Osmosis (requires a drain-line), and Ultra-Filtration Membranes:
Our most popular filtration set-up, Reverse Osmosis works by pushing water through a semi-permeable membrane at extremely high pressure. The result is crystal clear water that is free from virtually all impurities found in municipal water sources; including salt, iron, fluoride, lead, bacteria, pharmaceuticals, even radio-active materials cannot can withstand the advanced filtration technology of Reverse Osmosis. Our membranes are certified by the NSF, and are available in two different sizes: 50GPD(standard) and 180GPD for large volume applications.
*(R.O requires a drain line to discharge permeate)
Ultra Filtration can be used when a drain line is not available, but the customer requests the highest purity water possible. UF membranes will provide “absolute filtration”, even eliminating bacteria and viruses. UF is the best choice for people who would like to remove heavy metals, and toxic constituents, all while leaving “healthy” minerals such as salt, calcium, and magnesium behind.
- KDF 55 Medium Designed specifically for removing or reducing chlorine and water-soluble heavy metals. It controls scale, bacteria and algae, even in hot water. The process medium recently received NSF International Certification and is certified by NSF to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 – Drinking Water Treatment Units – Aesthetic Effects. This medium is also in compliance with California’s Health and Safety Code Section 166875 (or commonly known as AB1953) and Vermont Act 193.
- KDF 85 Medium Removes or reduces iron and hydrogen sulfide from municipal or other water supplies. Also controls scale, bacteria and algae.
KDF 55 and KDF 85 Process Media can remove up to 99% of water-soluble lead, mercury, nickel, chromium, and other dissolved metals. All KDF Process Media forms are effective in controlling the buildup of bacteria, algae, fungi and scale, making them ideal for use in GAC beds, ion exchange resins, carbon block filters and inline carbon filters. Wherever KDF Media is used, they can eliminate the need for costly, and sometimes harmful, chemical treatments.
UV light disinfection:
UV is a proven and safe alternative for primary disinfection, due to the fact that it is free of the harmful by-products associated with chemical disinfection. UV also has the added benefit of not compromising the taste, color or odor of water.
International H2O uses the highest quality UV bulbs available, and operate at the most effective wavelength. Our bulbs are manufactured by the Phillips Corporation, and are often imitated, but never duplicated. We also use the highest quality stainless steel housings to ensure that the quality of our UV disinfection products is unsurpassed by any of our competitors. When UV is chosen as an option, you can rest assured that 99.9% of bacteria and viruses are eliminated, including cryptosporidium, Hepatitis- A, Polio virus, Streptococcus, Adenovirus, E.Coli, Rotavirus, and Giardia.
International H2O also uses “in tank ozone” by SIP Technologies to ensure that the containment tank is free of any germs or bacteria. Ozone is an extremely active form of oxygen found in nature. Lightning is nature’s ozone generator with each flash generating a massive amount of ozone. After a lightning storm you’ll often notice a clean smell. That’s the cleansing effect of ozone! Earth would be overrun with bacteria without it.
Ozone (O3), one of nature’s basic elements, is a very powerful disinfecting and deodorizing gas consisting of oxygen (O2) with an extra oxygen atom attached therefore becoming ozone (O3). When oxygen in the air is exposed to high intensity ultraviolet rays, ozone is created (such as our sun creating the ozone layer). When ozone does it’s job, it oxidizes by giving up and attaching it’s extra oxygen atom to anything that can be oxidized. Once this process occurs, the ozone molecule becomes oxygen (O3 – O = O2). Thus, the only by product of ozone is oxygen. In fact, ozone reverts to oxygen quite rapidly and naturally.
When O3 is formed, it is like oxygen (which is an oxidant) turbocharged. We call it “activated oxygen”. You may know it as ozone. This happens naturally in our atmosphere and helps prevent bacteria and mold from growing out of control on earth.
Ozone has been used for over one hundred years to naturally and safely purify bottled water. Since ozone is an unstable gas, after the sanitisation is over, the ozone turns right back to oxygen leaving no residual. Now, we can use this powerful technology to make sure that your bottled water cooler automatically keeps your water pure
