Just Need a Replacement Filter?
A Closer Look Inside
- Kieselguhr Ceramic
Doulton ceramic is made from Kieselguhr
Diatomaceous Earth and fired to above 1000 degrees Celsius. Over 80,000 overlapping pores
make up each element. This feature provides absolute mechanical filtration to .9 of a
micron. 99.999% rejection of bacteria and cysts. Bacteria and any other foreign particles
as small as .2 of a micron are trapped on the outside of the element while the water
passes through the ceramic wall to the inside of the element.
This simply means self sterilizing. The entire
ceramic wall is impregnated with oligodynamic silver. Silver has been long proven as a
disinfectant which insures that bacteria trapped in the ceramic's pores are killed thereby
eliminating any threat of bacteria colonization.
Stages Two and Three
- The Core
Inside the Ceramic shell is a post filter which
is manufactured by combining a zeolite metal ion reduction medium, granular carbon and
powdered carbon to form a tightly packed matrix. This post filter provides two key
features; Chemical Reduction (chlorine, pesticides, solvents, etc.) and Heavy Metal
Reduction (lead, iron, aluminum, etc.) Medical authorities are now identifying heavy
metals as key players in the degradation of mental health in humans. Follow the above
links to see why you would want to remove these substances.
- H2O International Inc.
The Doulton ceramic element is an excellent
beginning for improving your drinking water, but with the addition of H2O's specialized
cartridges you can economically turn your filtration system into a customized purification
system. Additional stages can tackle problems such as excessive heavy metals, strong
odors, elevated chemical content, nitrates and even fluoride reduction. The addition of
one or more specialty cartridges will dramatically increase the removal efficiency of your
Additional housings are simply "plugged
in", one behind the other. They may be added at any time. These additional cartridges
do not require cleaning. They are simply disposed of at the end of their rated life.
The pore structure of the ceramic element is
designed to trap fine particles and bacteria. In doing so, the outside of the element will
eventually require cleaning. The need for cleaning becomes evident as the water flow from
the drinking faucet becomes reduced. When this occurs, remove the element and give it a
light scrub under running water. This will restore the original flow of water. If it does
not then this is a sign that the element is due for replacement.
Counter top models: These
require only the removal of the air diffuser from your existing kitchen faucet. The
diverter valve, which is already fitted to the supply hose, is then threaded onto the
faucet and the installation is complete.
- Sub-Micron Particulate Filtration
- Quickly and Easily Cleaned for Prolonged Life and Outstanding Economics
- Self Sterilization Bacteriostatic
- Cannot "Plug Up" Internally
- No Tools Required to Service
This elegant inexpensive counter top model
attaches to your existing kitchen faucet in seconds. Excellent for residents where
permanent installation is not desired. This unit's ease of mobility also makes it ideally
suited for cottage and RV owners. Adapters are available to ensure compatibility with
everything from traditional faucet designs to your common garden hose.
Doulton Water Filters
For the last century Doulton has been producing
economical home water treatment systems that give you the freedom of an unlimited supply
of water whenever you need it for just
pennies a day.
In 1835 Queen Victoria
recognized the health dangers in drinking water and commissioned Doulton to produce a
water filter for the Royal household. By 1901 Henry Doulton had been knighted, and his
company honored by authorizing it to use the word ROYAL in reference to its products. The
efficiency of Doulton domestic water filters has been widely extended over the years to
meet the demands of increasingly sophisticated uses. Doulton ceramics are now in use in
over 150 countries.
Doulton holds Certification, Accreditation, or
Membership with the following Agencies:
ISO 9002 Quality Standard
National Sanitation Foundation standards 42 and 53
