How it works

The Just Water Filter system gives you great tasting filtered water from your existing mixer tap.  The disposable filters are easy to change and utilise the latest technology in granulated activated carbon (GAC) block technology, which means they only need to be changed every twelve months.

Carbon is a substance that has a long history of being used to adsorb impurities and is perhaps the most powerful adsorbent known to man. One pound of carbon contains a surface area of roughly 125 acres and can adsorb literally thousands of different chemicals. Activated carbon is carbon which has a slight electro-positive charge added to it, making it even more attractive to chemicals and impurities. As the water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the negative ions of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules.

Carbon filtering is a method of filtering that uses a piece of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities, utilizing chemical adsorption. Each piece of carbon is designed to provide a large section of surface area, in order to allow contaminants the most possible exposure to the filter media.

Carbon filters are most effective at removing chlorine, sediment, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from water. They are not effective at removing minerals, salts, and dissolved inorganic compounds.

Granular activated carbon has long been utilized to reduce impurities in potable water. It is widely recognized for its adsorption capacity plus its ability to reduce dissolved organics and chemicals such as chlorine. These and other impurities can cause undesirable taste, odour and colour in water.

Just Water's disposable filter cartridge consists of finely powdered activated carbon particles that have been bonded together to form a totally uniform, solid profile with superior adsorptive capacity and kinetic efficiency. The filter cartridge elements are designed to flow in a radial, outside to inside direction resulting in low pressure drop, high flow rate and increased dirt holding capacity.

Manufactured entirely from FDA approved materials, Just Water's disposable filter cartridge is suitable for residential point-of-use water filtration, as well as, commercial and food service applications. The filter is manufactured from high purity activated carbon.
