UltraWater is the ONLY alkaline water ionizer filter tested for 172 contaminants. Independent EPA / NELAP certified lab testing shows UltraWater is the ONLY filter that can reduce virtually all contaminants up to 99.9% — even the toughest including arsenic, chromium VI, lead, VOCs and pharmaceuticals.
UltraWater filtration technology starts with the water industry’s proven top-performing media, adds in cutting edge medias in a new application, and then creates a new twist on existing manufacturing techniques. The result isn’t just a filter. It’s a proprietary filtration technology. This unique combination effectively “turbocharges” the media and filtration processes, allowing better performance and better results.
Only AlkaViva has the confidence to test their water filters using an independent US EPA-Certified lab to ensure you are drinking not only alkaline water but clean and purified water with the best contaminant removal available. See the results at our test results page.
Standard GAC filters do not offer this component. It is an electrostatic wrap comprised of polypropylene spun fibre. It is designed to provide a mechanical barrier to sediment – meaning it traps the sediment.
Comprised of NSF certified CaSO3 slow-eluting bio-ceramic balls. They target chlorine, chloramine certain heavy metals. CaSO3 is more effective than granulated active carbon or KDF. One hundred grams (100g) of CaSO3 will outperform carbon and KDF by a factor of x2.
Our NSF certified carbon is catalysed with an oxidizer and has the highest oxidation and adsorption pore concentration available. The carbon is impregnated with natural zeolite and silver. The zeolite provides increased heavy metal reduction and a slight ion-exchange effect. The silver prevents bacteria growth between uses. We use both carbon block and loose bed applications. Our blocks are sintered and compressed under high temperature and heat (not extruded) resulting in a superior block. Either way, our proprietary process greatly increases the surface area, contact time and the resulting capability.
This leading-edge technology is the real turbocharger in UltraWater. It combines a high-tech NSF certified reticulated foam which is impregnated with three different medias. All are NSF certified. All offer unmatched heavy metal and organics reduction allowing us to target contaminants that other alkaline water ionizer filters can’t - such as arsenic.
The tourmaline is in a very hard, slow-eluting biocermic ball from. It releases FAR infrared energy lowering surface tension. Scale Guard is a sequestering agent that is a highly effective anti-scale media. It is in a slow-eluting crystal bead form and is there to protect the ionizer from hard water damage.
Ensure you have done your research and beware of slick marketing. We have seen one company that offers “customized filtration” yet all they do is give you a standard three filter array (installed in addition to your ionizer) regardless of where you live. In addition to the installation you will now have a much higher replacement filter costs to replace annually and if you don’t you may void your warranty!
Another company touts .01 micron as its “UltraPlus”, best solution. A .01 micron filter sounds good, and can remove microbes, but is lousy at broad contaminant removal. We have sold them for 15 years and only recommend them if you are on untreated (well) water.
