The Ultra X 3 Filter system is the non-electric alternative to a UV system,
taking effective care of rural water issues right at the point of usage in the kitchen.
The Ultra X system removes bacteria, ecoli, giardia and cysts with a a powerful 0.01 micron filter media.
This Filter system will offer great clean safe water & peace of mind
as it will take care of any health dangers associated with bacteria, giardia and ecoli
"Now my water tastes very nice ... and is safe !"
Complete Filter system to remove all contaminants in rural water supplies - incl Goose-neck Filter tap, a 3 way cartridge system: Sediment filter, Ultra filter, Active Pure Xtra 3Yr, incl all parts: T-line diverter valve, pressure reducing valve, connectors, 1/4" tubing, wall brackets.
The different cartridges:
1) Sediment filter: Sediment filter - 5µ micron, all inclusive integrated housing: comes with 1/4" connectors and wall bracket
Used as a pre-filter for rural water supplies to protect the Ultra filter or other filters from clogging up.
Filter life: Depending on the amount of dirt and sediment entering the filter - once it starts blocking the flow it will be obvious and then it is time to replace the cartridge. Latest after 18months.
2) The Ultra Filter offers excellent filtration capacity for water borne pathogens through its 0.01µ Micron filter media. The Ultra filter is designed to remove Bacteria, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Ecoli, and other water born micro organisms and contaminants.
It has an inbuilt backflush system to maintain and extend filtration capacity and filter life, see installation for more info.
Capacity: 18 months usage (dependent on backflush being exercised every 6 months and a sediment pre-filter installed)
Working Pressure: 15 - 50 PSI (Please note: a pressure reducing valve is required for higher water pressures. See 'Accessories' for pressure reducing valve)

3) The Active Pure XTRA 3Yr is a high-performance filter for excellent quality drinking water (FDA approved) for effective chlorine removal, aluminium and heavy metal contamination. It contains two separate purification media.
The first stage is the versatile KDF oxidation/reduction media which removes trace heavy metals, such as aluminium and lead, plus chlorine, prolongong the life of the second granular carbon stage. (Pentex product - USA)
Removal of organics, chemicals, tastes and odours. Very effective in taste improving.
Media Activated carbon with KDF: Content: 1 pound of KDF
KDF is listed by the US National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) as a drinking water component. KDF is bacteriostatic, meaning that bacteria growth within the media bed is inhibited.
MEDIA: KDF, Granular activated carbon
Filter Mesh size: 5 µ micron
Capacity: 47,000 Litres or 36 months - Hygienic Life 3 years
This 3-filter system has a flow rate of approx 1-1.8 Litre/ minute depending on water pressure.
Please note for good operation the water pressure should be 20-60PSI. If the water pressure is on the lower end of pressure (15-20PSI) the flow will be slow but it will still produce pure clean safe & healthy drinking water ! On the higher end it will give you good flow.
Sediment, Ultra, Active Pure Xtra, Alka Spring cartridges:
Working Pressure: 15 - 60 PSI (Please note: a pressure reducing valve needs to be installed for higher water pressures, which is part of the kit)
Working Temperature: 5 - 40˚C
In case there would be agri-chemicals or chemicals through cloud formation or agricultural sprays coming into your water tank or water source, here is a list of chemicals being removed to various degrees by the Carbon block filter of the UV system:
