Fresh Filtered Water on Tap

How does charcoal purify water?

We filter your water three times before it reaches your mouth

Purifying water

Here at WFA, we are serious about ensuring your water is as pure as it can be. Our water filter systems filter your tap water three times before it reaches your mouth. This ensures we capture everything you don’t want in your water, leaving you with pure fresh filtered water…

…just as Mother Nature intended.

Here is a quick overview of how we purify water using WFA filters:

  1. Mechanical filtration – removes large particles and contaminants such as dust, dirt, rust, and cysts (Giardia and Cryptosporidium). These can affect the taste, odour and colour of your water. Our filters pick up particles down to 1 micron.
  2. Carbon/charcoal filtration – our WFA water filter system uses the pores within carbon to remove the nasty tastes and odours which are caused by a variety of factors, such as chlorine and other chemicals, ageing underground pipes and fluctuating dam levels. This second filtration ensures your water tastes, looks and smells as good as it can.
  3. Removal of limescale – this prevents a nasty build-up of limescale on your appliances such as kettles and coffee machines.
How does a charcoal filter work?

Charcoal filtration

Water filters use a special type of charcoal known as ‘activated charcoal’ to purify water.

Activated charcoal works through the process of adsorption. Note that adsorption is different to absorption. Adsorption binds impurities chemically on the surface of the charcoal filter rather than physically absorbing them.

Activated charcoal is the ideal water filter because it removes toxins from the water without stripping the water of salts and important minerals.

Water impurities

Because impurities are kept in the filter, it’s important to replace your water filter every 12 months to ensure it continues to work as it should.

Take advantage of WFA’s new subscription service, which takes the hassle out of replacing your water filter system. We will send a new one automatically every 12 months… too easy!

Why is charcoal the best water filter?
  1. The good stuff stays
  2. It makes your water taste better – removes chlorine and nasty odours. Chlorine is vital to ensure our water supply remains free of bacteria and viruses; however, we don’t need to drink chlorine/its a disinfectant.
  3. It’s relatively inexpensive
  4. It’s easy to maintain – just replace the filter every 12 months. Take advantage of the new subscription service.
It’s what our filters leave in your water that also makes it safe

Water filter

At WFA we understand that it’s not only important to filter out the bad stuff… it’s also vital that we leave in the good stuff. Because water not only hydrates us, but it also delivers fluoride for our dental health, as well as essential minerals and salts.

And because fluoride, calcium, magnesium and sodium are all dissolved minerals with the same consistency as water, they simply pass through our filters.

So, unlike many brands of bottled water, a WFA water filter system gives you water with fluoride, minerals and salts that will protect the health of you and your family.

You know you can trust our filters
