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:
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.
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!
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.
All WFA filter systems are independently certified at the highest possible level by NSF International (which sets industry standards for water filtration systems for meeting strict guidelines for health and aesthetic qualities).
They are also Australian Standards Watermark Certified, which provides validation for quality and integrity.
In water filtration, carbon is not a dirty word, particularly its role in the function of water filters. The qualities of carbon filtration come from the carbon activation process, either by physical methods or chemical reactions that burn away the carbon and create pores within the particles.
