Combining reverse osmosis and uv technology, you can get water that is 99.9% free of bacteria. Most under the sink ro water purifiers have membranes that remove up to 98% of TDS (dissolved solids).

Even if you get the top of the line water filter on the market, it will probably say that it is only 99.9% effective

How can I remove bacteria from water?


Bacteria and other microorganisms are removed from water through disinfection. This means that certain substances are added to the water in order to kill the bacteria, these are called biocides. Sometimes disinfection can also be done with UV-light.

How does a mechanical aquarium filter work?


A mechanical filtration system works by moving water through some kind of material that catches the solids and removes them from the water. The major problem with this type of filtration device is that although it is capable of removing extremely small particles, they eventually clog the filter. Essentially, the more effective the filter is at catching small particles, the more often you will have to clean the filter.

What's a mechanical filtration?


Mechanical filtration is the straining of solid particles from the aquarium water. Most common mechanical filter media do not remove microscopic bacteria and algae from the water. Neither will mechanical filtration remove any solids trapped by gravel, plants, or decorations. When using this method you'll need to use another method in addition in order to get rid of the solid wastes in your aquarium.

We use our jacuzzi once every two weeks. Every time we get small black particles of debris of some sort that sticks to the side of the tub. What is the problem?


the problem is bacteria building up in the water lines once the water dries. You should be using a jet cleaning product to clean the water lines out before they dry.

We have several different good cleaners on our site that all work well at keeping bacteria out of your water lines.

My Hayward S240 is only catching a small portion of the dead algae. I have replaced the media, the laterals are intact, and have added a filter enhancer. The spider gasket is good. I have lots of dead...


dead algae is made up of microscopic particles. Most sand filters have trouble filtering out particles that small. I would recommend using a flocculent that will force the particles to settle to the bottom, you can then set the multiport valve to the "waste" setting and vacuum as much of the debris as possible. You can use an additive like fiberclear to help the filter clear the water up quicker.

My miele novotronic W 1918 has a bad smell. Is there a filter that i should clean? Can't find it.


There is a fluff filter in the bottom left hand corner behind the flap. have a small tray, like a baking tray underneath it and open the flap with a flat lever or the miele yellow key. Turn the tap about 1/4 of a turn and collect about a litre of water from the unit. when it has stopped draining unscrew the tap all the way out and clean the fluff filter which is the tap in your hand. also have a look in the hole and you will see the drain pump. make sure this is free of any foreign particles and then re-screw the tap back making sure it is tight.
To avoid the smell in the unit run the machine on a few 95c washes. you can use a cleaner or just white vinegar as a cleaning agent. after every wash keep the door open for about 30 mins to let it dry out as shutting the door is then a perfect enviroment for bacteria to develop and the smell.

Also check the door seal for any foreign particles every wash.

Hope this helps.

Particles floating in whirlpool filtered water.


okay - we have had this same problem for around 6 weeks - We called a service repairman to come out and he said that these "floaties" are harmless bacteria. We should disconnect the filter and flush the system by using 1 gallon of water a day (wasting it) after the chlorine in the water is allowed to build up again then the "floaties"- bacteria- will go away---- gross :-( We will see if it works---
