Although we don’t expect you to take an Aragon filter apart to see how it works (you can if you like!), we thought you would still be interested in knowing what it does to the tap water you pour in – and – exactly how it changes the water so positively and so quickly…
It’s a three-step process:
- Step 1: Mechanical Cleaning (removes solids, even ones you can’t see)
- Step 2: Ion-Exchange Cleaning (the magic happens here – hardness removed, and the vast majority of impurities too)
- Step 3: Sorption-cleaning (activated charcoal and silver removes even more impurities and hardness)
Let’s go through these quickly…
Step 1 – Mechanical Cleaning
This removes suspended particles as large as pieces of rust, down to particles you can’t see with the naked eye.
Step 2 – Ion-Exchange Cleaning
This is the most unique part of our filtering process. Here’s a non-scientific summary:
During this stage, the water travels through the “Aragon 3” (even better than 1 and 2, no joke… 🙂 ) filtering material that acts like a maze removing impurities and hardness. They get trapped in the maze, leaving just much purer, softened water, coming out the other side.
Step 3 – Sorption Cleaning
Whereas some water filters use activated charcoal to remove impurities and that’s pretty much it, we make this just one of our three filtering approaches.
Plus, unlike many filters we also include silver here which helps stop bacterial growth within the filter. This is a step many other filters don’t take.
Simply put – many other filters on the market use maybe one of the technologies we do. While we take a three-prong approach to remove the vast majority of impurities and hardness from your water.
And – these filters work surprisingly quickly (up to 50 litres a minute) and also last a long time (even up to 50,000 litres of use).
Plus remember – unlike with reverse osmosis that creates distilled water (rather than the more beneficial rain water approach we take), these filters leave in the beneficial minerals, which your plants will love. Just ask them. 😉
