Biostone Water Filter--Ultrafine
NEW Ultrafine Biostone Water Filter fits all our Jupiter water ionizers (not recommended for Orion and Aquarius). This Biostone filter represents the state of the art in water filtration today. Hollow fiber filtration --the same technology used in kidney dialysis -- removes the finest particles, down to 0.01 microns. This is the finest domestic filter available. We recommend this filter for well-water, where there are hyper-allergenic issues, and in all cases where there are concerns about contamination.
A five-stage filter that includes:
Silver-coated activated carbon that removes harmful chlorine, trihalomethanes, phenols, sediment, odor, sour taste, organic waste, lead, pesticides and bacteria of all kinds.
"Tourmaline" ceramic: a semiprecious gem that naturally emits infrared energy, which initiates negative ion creation even before the water is ionized and reduces surface tension. Tourmaline, a semiprecious mineral, is a natural source of negative ions*. Within the Biostone filter it increases alkalinity and discourages bacterial growth. It is also a mild source of far infrared radiation (FIR),which assists in the electrolysis (ionization process) that follows filtering.*Tourmaline emits negative charge of any significance only when external heat,pressure or kinetic shock is applied. By itself,sitting as a "lump" of crystal, its electrical emission is tiny. In an ionizer, water flow provides the "kinetic shock" to stimulate a small electric charge. Scientific references for this property of tourmaline can be found on the web.
Coral Calcium. For years, this substance has been prized in Japan and the Phillipines for its healing properties. It also adds calcium, magnesium and trace minerals to the water. Their health benefits are well established. And, if your water source is low in minerals (e.g. tank water), these minerals will assist the ionization process. Furthermore it reduces harmful levels of sodium fluoride. Because of the fineness of filtration.
lifespan is 5-7 months for the Ultrafine filter, compared to 8-12 months for the standard Biostone water filter. Longevity will depend on your water source and frequency of use. For example, if the chlorine level of your tap water is between 0.4 and 1.0 ppm (parts per million), this can extend the life of the water filter by 50%.

|* The Biostone UF (Ultrafine) filter is especially useful for use with well water, or for people with higher than usual sensitivityto bacteria and other contaminants. It is not necessary to order an Ultrafine filter if you are on municipally treated water.|
Ultrafine filter the 0.01~0.001 super-minute porous structured filter system has a selective filtering function: lets mineral pass but easily eliminates virus, bacteria and corpuscles
Silver Coated Active Carbon The filtering function uses active carbon--carbon created by burning palm trees at high temperature. This is a secondary pollution-prevention function.
Special textile filter This filter contains a triple textile filter, so no need to worry about germ propagation.
Tourmaline Ceramic This material self-creates a weak electric current of 11 micron 0.03 mA and emits FIR (far infrared radiation. It has composite functions such as adsorption / repulsion, anion formation, etc, that are highly effective for activating tap water
Coral Calcium Adds coral calcium, removes bad odors in the water -- water becomes more pleasant tasting

Read the list of bacteria, viruses and fungi present in water (and their size), Regarding the Removal of Fluorine. Recent independent tests showed a reduction from 4.40 (ppm) parts per million to 0.59 ppm. These tests used a high flow rate and a pH setting of only 8. If the flow rate is reduced and the pH put on a high setting, the result will be an even greater reduction as the water takes longer to go through the filter and because the more alkaline the water, the fewer the fluoride ions. In the new Biostone filters there is a band of coral calcium. The calcium bonds with the active fluoride creating a non-reactive and safe calcium fluoride. For fluoride test results see here.
