TRAVELING WITH A WATER FILTER - SAFE TAP WATER ON HOLIDAY

Description

The mineral calcium occurs in varying concentrations in water and is expressed in °dH (degrees of German hardness). Calcium is not visible, but forms deposits when heated, depending on the degree of hardness. These deposits damage electrical household appliances such as fully automatic coffee machines, coffee makers, water and tea boilers. 

The BWT filter cartridge Soft Filtered Water Extra is specially designed to treat water with a very high degree of hardness (over 15° dH). The reliable reduction of water hardness protects household appliances from limescale deposits. The specially developed filter also reduces heavy metals (such as lead, copper) as well as odour- and taste-disturbing substances such as chlorine. This turns tap water into noticeably softer water for unrestricted enjoyment. 

Protecting household appliances. 
Lime-containing water leaves unsightly limescale deposits in household appliances such as kettles or coffee machines. This not only leads to poorer heat transfer and thus to increased energy consumption, but also to the fact that the function of the appliances is impaired and their service life is shortened. In addition, limescale deposits favour the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria.

FAQs

To achieve an optimal filter effect, you should replace the filter cartridge every four weeks at the latest.

If, however, the Easy-Control (model A) shows 100 fillings on the display before the four weeks have elapsed, the filter cartridge must be replaced before the four weeks have elapsed. This is indicated by a flashing filter cartridge on the display.
  • It is best to store the filtered water in your refrigerator.
  • Our models fit ideally into most refrigerator doors on the market.
  • The filtered water should not be stored for more than 24 hours.
If the water should remain in the jug for longer than 24 hours, pour the water away and filter fresh water.
The name BWT stands for quality from Austria. That is why all our filter cartridges are produced in Mondsee. There, you will find a state-of-the-art production facility that is subject to continuous quality controls. The filter systems are produced in Italy and meet the highest standards in terms of materials and workmanship.
No, neither the table water filter nor the filter cartridges are made of plastics that release plasticisers such as BPA into the water. This is strictly monitored through migration tests by independent institutes.
The table water filter is made of SAN and ABS. PP and PPS are used to manufacture the filter cartridges.
In the BWT table water filter system, the drinking water is filtered in four stages:
Stage 1: Particles are filtered out of the water.
Stage 2: Depending on which filter cartridge technology you have chosen, the water is treated accordingly:
  • Soft Filtered Water Extra: Limescale and heavy metal content are increasingly reduced.
  • Magnesium Mineralised Water: Limescale and heavy metal content are reduced, calcium ions are replaced by magnesium ions.
  • Magnesium Mineralized Water + ZINC: Calcium and heavy metal content are reduced, calcium ions are replaced by magnesium ions and zinc is added to the water.
  • Balanced Alkalized Water: The heavy metal content is reduced and the pH value of the water is increased to >8.5.
Stage 3: Odour- and taste-disturbing substances such as chlorine and certain organic impurities are filtered out of the water.
Stage 4: Fine filtration is carried out.
No, the BWT filter cartridge is not designed to filter fluoride from the water or to reduce the amount of fluoride.
Always observe local recycling regulations!
Filter cartridges and filter filling: Dispose of exhausted filter cartridges and filter fillings in household waste.
Packaging material: Dispose of plastic film and cardboard packaging - if locally possible - in the waste separation system. This will help to protect the environment.
Water filter system: If locally possible, dispose of the water filter system in the waste separation system. This will help to protect the environment.
The "Easy-Control" change indicator is an electronic component that must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations and legal requirements. The change indicator can be removed from the cover with the aid of a screwdriver placed on the edge of the "Easy-Control". The "Easy-Control" should only be removed from the cover during disposal.
The service life of the filter cartridge varies depending on the place of use, as the water is not the same everywhere. The capacity of the filter cartridge depends on the hardness of the water. The harder the water, the sooner the filter cartridge is exhausted.

The substances indicated, e.g. lead and copper, which are reduced by the filter, are not present in all drinking water. The filter cartridges meet the microbiological requirements for water filters according to DIN 10521. The requirements according to DIN 10521 for chlorine, lead and copper retention are also met.
If stored properly, original BWT filter cartridges can be stored for several years. Proper storage means:
  • At temperatures between 1°C and 40°C.
  • The filter cartridges should always be stored in the original packaging foil until the filter cartridge change.
  • The filter cartridges should be stored in a cool, dry place and protected from sunlight.
Our filter granulate consists of a carefully balanced mixture of activated carbon and ion exchangers. Thanks to its large surface structure, the activated carbon binds taste-impairing substances such as chlorine and chlorine compounds. The ion exchangers absorb lime-forming substances and heavy metals such as lead and copper and thus remove them from the filtered water.
In addition, the BWT filter granulate is equipped with the patented magnesium technology, which releases magnesium ions into the filtered water in exchange for calcium ions. This lowers the pH value less than with conventional table water filters. Better taste of the water and the food and drinks prepared with it are the result.
Our production facilities in Austria and Germany are aligned with the strict ISO guidelines and the hygiene regulations of the HACCP concept and are checked several times by independent auditors. The food quality of the products is monitored by the independent TÜV Rheinland/LGA. In order to meet the highest hygiene requirements, our filter cartridges are sterilised and a small amount of silver is added (in accordance with the recommendations of the World Health Organisation WHO). In this way, we create a consistently high level of quality. This is the only way to ensure that the handling of the sensitive product drinking water always meets the highest hygiene standards.
