Osmio Water stock a wide range of ceramic based water filters. Ceramic water filters provide a highly effective and relatively inexpensive way to remove dirt, debris, bacteria, protozoa, microbial cysts and more from water. As with most filtration methods, water is carefully introduced to one side of the filter, which acts to block the passage of anything larger than the pore size.
Several of our ceramic water filters are treated with impregnated silver in a form that will not leach away. The silver helps to kill or sterilise bacteria and prevent the growth of mould and algae in the body of the filter.
Ceramic filtration does not remove chemical contaminants per se. However, some manufacturers (notably Coldstream) incorporate a high-performance activated carbon core inside the ceramic filter cartridge that reduces organic and metallic contaminants. The active carbon absorbs compounds such as chlorine.
