How does a water filter work?
The multi-stage filtering process of the Magnesium Mineralized Water filter cartridge from BWT is a milestone in the history of filter development. A fine fabric filter reduces coarse impurities and stops particles. The patented ion exchanger absorbs the minerals that cause limescale and heavy metals such as lead and copper and replaces them with magnesium and hydrogen ions.
This revolutionary technology efficiently protects household appliances against limescale deposits because the calcium responsible for hardening the water is replaced with the valuable mineral magnesium.
At the same time, substances that impair odour and taste (such as chlorine) are removed. The cartridge offers the best possible limescale protection and adding magnesium to the filtered water improves the taste and makes it the first choice for connoisseurs and gourmets – also for making coffee and tea.
Filter cartridges for the BWT table water filter
The BWT AQA drink range of filters refine tap water to produce great-tasting, filtered, magnesium-mineralized water. In addition, the water contains less of the minerals that cause limescale. This protects your appliances, such as kettles or coffee makers, against calcification. In addition, you will be protecting the environment by avoiding disposable plastic bottles and therefore producing less plastic waste. BWT AQA drink filter cartridges in combination with BWT's AQA drink Pro 20 water dispenser mean you no longer have to haul heavy crates of bottled water from the shops to your home.
