Safe drinking water is often taken for granted, yet in many parts of the world reliable supplies of clean water are at a premium. British Berkefeld waterfilters are intended for use in situations where a reliable supply of safe drinking water is unavailable.
The Berkefeld portable waterfilter is simply to operate. Requires no external plumbing and takes only minutes to assemble and can provide up to 60 litres of safe drinking water each day. The filter consists of two containers. The upper container is filled with untreated water which then filters down into the lower combiner through a number of ceramic elements. Independently tested the filter removed for more that 99,99% Escherischia Coli, Klebsiella, Cholera, Shigella, Salmonella. For 100% Guinea Worm, Giardia Lamblia and Crytosporidium.
The Doulton HCP model is a free-standing filter for countertop use which is easily installed on to the existing cold water or mixer faucet via a diverter valve. This filter needs no permanent modifications to the kitchen plumbing, allowing filtered or unfilterered water to be drawn from the existing faucet at the press of a button. The Ultracarb filter cartridge provideds all the protection of the ceramic candles but also eliminates metal elements which you find for instance in most parts of former Eastern Europe.
