Chanson Ultra Filtration 0.1- 0.01 Micron Water Filter with Canister
The Chanson Water Stage 1 Ultra Filter is yet another innovation from the engineers at Chanson water. The Ultra-filter provides amazing filtering capabilities.
The Chanson Ultra Filter is the world's first home non-clogging 0.1-0.01 Micron filter for safe, clean drinking water right from your drinking faucet.
Filtration systems with a 0.1- 0.01 micron-size membrane are nothing new. They have been used in hosp[ital settings and promoted as antibacterial filters for many years. The problem was they were not designed for efficiency, The pore size at 0.01 microns got clogged very easily. In many cases it reduced water flow and shortened filter life to less than 3 months of use.
With the Chanson Ultra Filter, you get true antibacterial protection against viruses, mold and fungus, spores, e-coli and coliform bacteria, Giardia and Crytosporium as well as 99.9% of all pathogens. The Ultra Filter has even passed bacterial tests running unfiltered lake water through its filter.
All this without clogging! As a matter of fact, the Chanson Ultra filter works so well the filter itself can stay at full flow rate for up to 2 years. This single canister version of our ultrafilter can be added to an existing filter system or used alone.
Use your Chanson Ultra filter anywhere bacteria-free water is needed. Perfect for use with other filters such as the Chanson C3, RV's, Campers, Boats, Well water sources, Lake Water.
UV light versus Ultra Filter: which is better? UV light as a bacterial killer has many flaws. If the UV bulb gets the lightest haze on it (which it will overtime) the UV light becomes ineffective at killing bacteria. Also the speed at which the water flows past the light makes it difficult for it to be effective and you may not know when the bulb stops working. As health advocates, our biggest concern is that after a UV light kills bacteria, the bacteria is still in the water for you to consume. Not so with the Chanson Ultra filter, 99.9% of all bacteria is larger than .02 micron and so the .01 ultra filter easily traps and removes the bacteria from water. The Chanson Ultra filter element is made in the USA by the world's largest membrane producer, Chanson then takes that element and creates our backwashing ultra filter housing, all Chanson plastics are food grade and BPA free.
Why doesn't the .01 micron filter get clogged? Until now, .01 micron filters were not used in filtration units because of how easily they would clog - users would see reduced water flow after only 3-4 weeks of use! The Chanson Water Ultra-filter has a self-flushing system which prevents clogging and extends the life of the filter. When the main faucet is turned on the contaminants are flushed down the drain, cleaning the filter! (See diagram in photos section)
How long will the Ultra Filters last? The Ultra Filter will last 2-3 years before it needs to be replaced compared to other filters that last 6-8 months.
Because of its anti-bacterial properties, the Chanson Ultra-filter can be used in times of emergency when bacterial concerns can cause the city to issue a boil water warning.
The Ultra-filter can clean and purify water in these circumstances as well as process raw lake water.
