4 Stages of Filtration

Our countertop water filter, Hydro, utilizes a 4-stage filtration process that includes 3 dispodable cartridges and a UV-C light (in the purified water tank) to ensure that your tap water is the purest and bacteria-free water you can drink.

- What are the 3 different cartridges used by Hydro?

1) The first one is our PAC Filter, which uses the combination of a "Folded Polypropylene Cotton" (5micron) on the outside and a "Powdered Activated Carbon rod" on the inside made from high quality Coconut shells.

The Polypropylene part reduces larger particles of impurities suspended in the water such as:

Dirt

Soil

Sand

Sediments

Rust

The Carbon rod absorbs:

Chlorine

Disinfection byproducts (e.g., trihalomethanes)

Organic matter

Pesticides

Pharmaceuticals

Taste-odor compounds,

- as well as some heavy metals such as:

Lead (Pb)

Cadmium (Cd)

Arsenic (As)

Mercury (Hg)

Chromium (Cr).

We don't recommend solely relying on PAC filters to remove heavy metals, since their heavy metal filtering power is weak. Therefore, we always recommend relying on Reverse Osmosis instead for that particular purpose.

2) The second filter in the series is the RO filter, which employs a 200G high-flux semi-permeable Reverse Osmosis membrane to separate water molecules from other compounds present in tap water.

Here is a summary of the various contaminants that Reverse Osmosis is known to remove from water:

• Total dissolved Solids

• Radioactive contaminants

• Pharmaceuticals

• Perfluorinated chemicals

• Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)

• Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs)

• Heavy metals

• Bacteria

• Viruses

• chloramines

• fluoride

• Nitrate

• Pesticides

• Herbicides

• Residual chlorine

• Dissolved minerals

• Organic compounds

• Sulfate

• Phosphate

• Silica

• Personal care products

• Cyanide

• Selenium

• Bicarbonate

• Carbonate

• Turbidity

• Total suspended solids

• Algae/microorganisms

3) The CF filter is the third and final cartridge which uses a "Natural-Trace Mineralised Carbon Rod" to remineralise the purified water.

The Reverse Osmosis technology used to strip away potentially harmful contaminants from water, cannot avoid to also strip away the "good minerals" from it, good minerals that the human body needs.

That's why we decided to add 18 natural mineralized materials in the CF cartridge, to remineralize the water.

These materials are:

• Serpentine

• Sea Pumice

• Calcium Feldspar

• Zinc Spinel

• Bioclastic Tuff

• Hectomorphic Dolomite

• Magnetite

• Wollastonite

• Plagioclase

• Tengchong Volcanic Rock

• Marl

• Kaolinite Ore

• Volcanic Glass Rock

• Tourmaline

• Tianshan Mafic

• Potassium Feldspar

• Porous Basalt

This filter guarantees sweet-tasting alkaline water with a pH of 8-9 that is rich in potassium, sodium, magnesium, and calcium.

While water can be a good source of minerals, we don't recommend relying on it as your only source of minerals.

The human body absorbs minerals and vitamins mainly from food, even though even food quality nowadays isn't so great and even food lacks in minerals. Therefore, if you're serious about your health, we recommend supplementing with additional minerals. For example, you could take multivitamins, (Our favorite are the ones you can find at Bixvitamins.com, Use our code "WEEUP20" at checkout to receive an exclusive 20% discount.)

For more precise mineral supplementation, we suggest consulting your doctor and requesting a blood test to determine which minerals you lack in, so that you supplement with high precision.

- The 4th stage of filtraton is carried by a UV-C light that is present inside the "purified water" tank, to ensure that your water stay bacteria-free after it has been filtered. (Once the water is Chlorine Free, it will start growing bacteria, that is why for this countertop we decided to use UV-C Disinfection at the end)

How does it work?

UV-C light is a form of ultraviolet light that has a wavelength between 200 and 280 nanometers. When water is exposed to UV-C light, the light penetrates the cell walls of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and algae, and disrupts their DNA, preventing them from reproducing and rendering them harmless.

UV-C light doesn't remove physical impurities from the water such as dirt, debris, chlorine or heavy metals, but it's an effective way to disinfect the water that has already been filtered, that is why in the case of Hydro, we use UV-C technology right at the last stage of filtration.

Contaminants & Health Related Risks

Chlorine is the chemical element with the symbol Cl and atomic number 17. It is a highly reactive gas commonly used as a disinfectant in water treatment plants. Its effectiveness at killing harmful bacteria, viruses, and microorganisms is essential to ensuring the safety of our water supply, and it is a cheaper method that has been used for more than 100 years.

However, exposure to high levels of chlorine can cause respiratory, eye, and skin irritation, and long-term exposure has been linked to an increased risk of bladder and colon cancer.

Chlorine can also react with other chemicals in the water to form Disinfection byproducts (DBPs), including trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs), which can have negative effects on human health.

These byproducts have been linked to an increased risk of cancer, birth defects, and other adverse health effects. To avoid the formation of DBPs and prevent exposure to potentially harmful substances, it is crucial to remove chlorine and other DBPs from water before consumption.

Overall, while chlorine is an effective disinfectant, it is important to be aware of its potential health risks so that consumers can make an informed choice.

Chloramines are a group of chemical compounds that are formed by the reaction of chlorine with ammonia.

They provide longer-lasting protection against harmful microorganisms than chlorine alone and the side effects are very similar to the ones caused by chlorine.

To reduce exposure to chloramines and their byproducts, it is essential to remove them from water before consumption. This can be done through various methods, such as activated carbon filtration or reverse osmosis.

It is also important to note that boiling water can actually increase the concentration of chloramines, as the heat causes the compounds to become more concentrated.

Heavy Metals and fluoride are two common contaminants found in tap water. Heavy metals, such as lead, arsenic, and mercury, can be naturally occurring or the result of human activities such as mining, manufacturing, and wastewater treatment.

Fluoride is a chemical compound that is often added to tap water to help prevent tooth decay, although this can also be achieved through simple oral hygiene practices, such as brushing our teeth.

Exposure to heavy metals and fluoride in tap water can have negative effects on human health. Heavy metals can accumulate in the body over time and have been linked to developmental problems, neurological disorders, and cancer.

Lead, in particular, can have devastating effects on children's cognitive development, even at low levels.

To reduce exposure to heavy metals and fluoride, it is essential to filter tap water before consumption. Several filtration methods, including reverse osmosis, can effectively remove these contaminants.

It is also important to note that some communities have opposed the addition of fluoride to tap water, citing potential health risks. While the practice has been deemed safe by many health organizations, some individuals choose to remove fluoride from their tap water as a precautionary measure.

This would be our suggested choice as well, given that the reasons for adding fluoride to tap water not only do not make sense to us, but the potential risks are just not worth it.

Microplastics can end up in tap water in several ways. They can come from the breakdown of larger plastic items, such as water bottles or packaging, or from microfibers shed by clothing during laundering.

Microplastics can also come from the wear and tear of tires on the road, which then gets washed into our water systems.

Once microplastics are in our tap water, they can have harmful effects on human health. Studies have shown that these tiny particles can be ingested and absorbed by our bodies, causing damage to our cells and tissues.

Microplastics have also been found to contain harmful chemicals, such as Bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates, which can leach into our water and cause further damage to our health.

One study found that the average person could be ingesting up to 5 grams of plastic per week, the equivalent of a credit card. This amount may seem small, but the long-term effects of ingesting these particles are still unknown.

Microplastics have been linked to a range of health problems, including hormonal imbalances, reproductive issues, and even cancer.

To address the issue of microplastics in tap water, there are several steps that can be taken. Firstly, reducing our use of single-use plastics, such as water bottles, can help reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in our water systems.

Additionally, washing clothes on shorter, cooler cycles can help reduce the shedding of microfibers. Finally, investing in better water filtration systems can help remove microplastics from our tap water.

In conclusion, microplastics in tap water pose a significant threat to human health and the environment. By taking steps to reduce our use of plastics and investing in better water filtration systems, we can help minimize the impact of these tiny particles on our health and the health of our planet.

Endocrine Disruptors Chemical (EDCs) can interfere with the hormone systems in animals, including humans.

There are many different types of endocrine disruptors that have been detected in tap water. Some common endocrine disruptors found in tap water include: Bisphenol A (BPA), Phthalates, Pesticides and herbicides, Pharmaceuticals, Flame retardants.

BPA is a chemical used in the production of some plastics and resins, and can leach into tap water from plastic water bottles and other containers.

Phthalates are a group of chemicals used in many consumer products, including plastics, cosmetics, and personal care products. They can leach into water from plastic pipes and other sources.

Many pesticides and herbicides contain endocrine-disrupting chemicals that can leach into groundwater and surface water and find their way into tap water.

Some medications (Pharmaceuticals), such as birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy drugs, contain hormones that can act as endocrine disruptors and may be present in trace amounts in tap water.

Flame retardant chemicals are used in many consumer products, such as furniture, electronics, and textiles. They can leach into tap water from these products and can act as endocrine disruptors.

Hydrogen Rich Function

Molecular Hydrogen Explained

Molecular hydrogen works by selectively targeting the most harmful free radicals and neutralizing them by donating electrons. Unlike other antioxidants, molecular hydrogen is small enough to penetrate cellular membranes and enter the cell, where it can neutralize free radicals directly.

Research has shown that molecular hydrogen can have a wide range of health benefits, including reducing inflammation, improving cognitive function, and protecting against various diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

Additionally, molecular hydrogen is safe, non-toxic, and has no known side effects, making it a promising therapeutic agent for preventing and treating free radical-induced damage in cells and tissues.

Hydro uses the latest SPE ELECTROLYSIS TECNOLOGY 4.0 to produce Hydrogen rich water that is always available 24/7.

The electrolysis process happens thanks to an electric current and a membrane electrode that separate hydrogen and oxygen gases. The hydrogen gas is collected and dissolved into the water to produce hydrogen-rich water.

Did you know that hydrogen inhalation and bathing practices in hydrogen-rich water have been used in some parts of the world, such as Japan, for their potential health benefits? After conducting some research, you will quickly realize that there are many health benefits linked to consuming molecular hydrogen.

Hydrogen is the smallest element in the periodic table, with an atomic number of 1 and a molecular weight of approximately 1 amu. Its small size gives it unique properties, including its ability to play important roles in many chemical and physical processes, such as cellular respiration in the mitochondria.

One interesting fact about hydrogen is that it is a natural and non-toxic antioxidant, unlike other antioxidants. It can easily penetrate cell membranes and enter the mitochondria, where it can help protect cells from oxidative stress and improve cellular function.

Moreover, hydrogen has been studied for its potential to improve athletic performance and reduce muscle fatigue, as well as to support healthy aging and brain function. By incorporating hydrogen-rich water into your routine, you may be able to take advantage of these health-promoting properties in an easy and convenient way.

Numerous studies on Hydrogen have been carried in the last decades and according to this research Hydrogen helps

• Fight oxidative stress in human cells

Positively affects muscle performance

• Reduce blood lactate levels

• Improve muscle fatigue after acute exercise

• Support growth of good gut microflora 

• Attenuate fatty acid uptake and lipid accumulation

Promote type-I collagen production

• Represses wrinkle formation against UV-A ray

• Induce ghrelin gene expression in the stomach.

4 Stages of Filtration

Hydro is a countertop water filter that uses advanced filtration technology to ensure that your tap water is clean and safe to drink.

The four-stage filtration process includes three disposable cartridges and a UV-C light in the purified water tank.

The PAC filter is the first cartridge, which uses a combination of a folded polypropylene cotton and powdered activated carbon rod to remove larger particles and absorb chemicals and some heavy metals.

The second cartridge is the RO filter, which employs a high-flux semi-permeable membrane to separate water molecules from other compounds in tap water.

The CF filter is the third cartridge and uses a natural trace mineralized carbon rod to remineralize the water after it has been filtered.

Finally, the UV-C light in the purified water tank disrupts the DNA of microorganisms to render them harmless. By utilizing this four-stage process, Hydro ensures that your tap water is the purest and bacteria-free water you can drink.

Find more detailed information on the "4 Stages of Filtration" collapsible row, below the product link on this page.

Ultra Violet Light Technology - Disinfection

UV-C light is present inside the "purified water" tank, to ensure that your water stay bacteria-free after it has been filtered.

How does it work?

UV-C light is a form of ultraviolet light that has a wavelength between 200 and 280 nanometers. When water is exposed to UV-C light, the light penetrates the cell walls of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and algae, and disrupts their DNA, preventing them from reproducing and rendering them harmless.

UV-C light doesn't remove physical impurities from the water such as dirt, debris, chlorine or heavy metals, but it's an effective way to disinfect the water that has already been filtered, that is why in the case of Hydro, we use UV-C technology right at the last stage of filtration.

Did you know?

Most traditional (Plumbed In) Reverse Osmosis Systems use a 10L tank to store the filtered water, and that water can potentially grow bacteria since chlorine is no longer present.

Hydro, however, using UV-C light to keep the "filtered water" tank bacteria-free at all times, will make of that issue a thing of the past.

Hydrogenation

Hydro uses SPE Electrolysis Technology 4.0 to produce hydrogen-rich water 24/7.

This water is created by separating hydrogen and oxygen gases through an electric current and membrane electrode.

Hydrogen is dissolved into the water and used as a natural and non-toxic antioxidant that can improve cellular function and support healthy aging, athletic performance, and brain function.

Studies have shown that hydrogen can fight oxidative stress, positively affect muscle performance, reduce blood lactate levels and muscle fatigue, and promote the growth of good gut microflora, among other benefits.

Numerous third-party studies are available for further reading and here is the link for the 185 studies we recommend you have a look at: Third Party Studies

Cold-Hot Temperature Options

Hydro offers 6 different water temperatures with its 3-second heating and cooling tech, from 10°C. to 100°C.

Choose your preferred temperature by tapping on the touch-screen panel.

The warmer options are protected by a "Child Lock," accessible by tapping the "Lock Key."

While the warm temperature options work at full capacity, the cold water option only provides up to 500ml of cold water at a time because that's the size of the "refrigerated water" tank.

Each time cold water is used, the tank will refill and the refrigeration process for the new water will start.

If you want to have constant access to cold water, we recommend filling up some glass bottles and storing them in your fridge.

PH 8.5+

The PH matter is very subjective, some people who struggle with their body acidity prefer Alkaline water while others don't mind drinking more basic water. Hydro tends to deliver water with PH of 8,5/9.
