6 Stage Portable Hydrogen-Rich Reverse Osmosis Water Filter System High Alkaline (GT1-70 Shuttle)
The NEW Hydrogen Rich 6 Stage Shuttle
Our Original XstreaMn 6 Stage RO System has dominated the domestic water filtration market since its introduction in late 2011, where the water filtration technology remained unmatched until now.
Our goal over the last 5 years was to make the BEST Water Filter money can buy, EVEN BETTER!
The NEW Hydrogen-Rich, High Alkaline 6 Stage Shuttle RO System now comes with the Technologically advanced T300 Hydrogen-Rich Water Filter. This High Quality, FDA Certified Cartridge has multiple beneficial effects on Drinking Water.
The Alkaline Media is derived from Sub-Nanometer Calcium, Potassium and Pure Magnesium Mineral and provides superior High Alkaline stability, providing you with a longer and more stable pH reading over the filter life. The media is agglutinated under high temperature which can withstand up to 250PSI; its anomalous surface enables greater surface area contact. The T300 Filter also has the unique ability to produce Hydrogen-Antioxidants through the Hydroxide-Alkaline pH acidity balance of the Magnesium media dissolving into the water.
The Benefits Of Molecular Hydrogen (H2) In Water
Hydrogen Rich water has been the topic of Discussion and Research in the US for several years which has come a long way. Hydrogen functions as an antioxidant that helps to prevent cell damage and inflammation, protect DNA and combat out of control cell growth.
The issue with H20 is that the Hydrogen is not easily available to the body as the hydrogen is bonded to the oxygen leaving no Free Hydrogen. The point of Hydrogen-Rich water is to provide Hydrogen that is easier for our cells to use.
Hydrogen-Rich water is created through a simple chemical reaction between water and Magnesium.
Hydrogen Rich water has shown benefits through aiding the prevention of Metabolic Syndrome, Improved health in Diabetes & Prediabetes Patients through lowering LDL (Bad Cholesterol) levels and improved glucose metabolism.
-In an early experiment, drinking hydrogen water prevented the development of Parkinson's disease in rats. The hydrogen water reduced the oxidative stress and prevented cognitive impairment associated with dementia and Parkinson's disease.
-Additionally, in a study on patients with Parkinson’s disease, it was found that the intake of hydrogen water reduces neurotoxic damage, which agrees with previous studies on animals. There were also no adverse effects from the hydrogen water at high doses (1000 mL/day)
-Molecular Hydrogen exhibits anti-inflammatory effects in many animal studies
-In a study, patients with rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic inflammatory disease, drank .5 L/day of hydrogen water for 4 weeks. By the end of the study all patients with early rheumatoid arthritis achieved remission and 20% became symptom-free
-During an experiment with young athletes, the consumption of Hydrogen Rich Water reduced lactic acid build up during intense exercise and decreased muscular fatigue.
-In a further study on mice with type 2 diabetes and obesity, hydrogen water significantly reduced fatty liver. It also reduced levels of glucose, insulin & triglycerides by stimulating energy metabolism.
-Long term drinking on hydrogen rich water controlled body fat and weight in rats despite no change in food and water intake.
-Clinical studies have shown that drinking Hydrogen rich water directly protects the mitochondria and helps improve mitochondrial disorders.
-Drinking Hydrogen rich water also stimulates energy metabolism that was measured by Oxygen consumption & CO2 production
-Metabolic acidosis is a condition characterised by an increase in blood acidity, which can be exacerbated with exercise. A study in healthy physically active males found that a daily intake of hydrogen-rich water for 14 days increased the pH of the blood before and after exercise with no side effects. The study concluded that drinking hydrogen water is safe and may have an alkalising effect in the blood
-The ability of molecular hydrogen to protect nuclear DNA and the mitochondria from oxidative damage is thought to have beneficial effects on chronic diseases like cancer and the ageing process
H2 treatment delayed the replicative lifespan of bone marrow stem cells by reducing oxidative stress. When human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were grown in a hydrogen-rich medium, both oxidative stress and cellular ageing were suppressed. The study concluded that drinking hydrogen water may increase longevity in
Our Thoughts On Water Fluoridation
Fluoride is a hot topic all across Australia and the entire world. Unfortunately, whether or not you agree or disagree with the Fluoridation of Drinking Water, it is there!
Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration is the safest and most effective solution to remove Fluoride from your drinking water. Fluoride is a proven neurotoxin shown in countless credible studies in the US. The claimed dental health benefits are irrelevant compared to the known and proven correlation between fluoridated water and Chronic Disease.
Reverse Osmosis water filtration is able to remove Fluoride from the water as it is a Mineral Salt. Mineral salts will pass straight through standard filtration however the 0.0001 Micron RO membranes are able to remove Fluoride along with other impurities in the water.
"Re-Mineralising - Alkalising - What Does It Mean?"
Reverse Osmosis water filtration comes with an ongoing debate in regards to the statements “RO water is "Too Pure" and “RO removes minerals that are beneficial to health"
Both of these statements are deceptive and to the everyday person sounds like fact, but please let us explain both of these statements.
The misconception being water that is “Too Pure” is all to do with the pH of the water (although the “experts” will state things much more dramatically). Water that is “too pure” simply is water that contains little to no minerals and impurities. However, this can leave the water acidic which is not ideal for drinking. The Solution? Using a post filter for Alkalising or Mineralising the water.
This is where the word "valuable minerals" has crept into the selling of Reverse Osmosis filtration by sellers that are not equipped with the appropriate knowledge.
In fact, minerals are only valuable when they are IN our bodies, and the way they get there is through organic food intake - not inorganically. Water Filtration uses Inorganic methods, so any mention of "re-mineralizing" the water through water filtration is simply not a process that is benefiting our bodies at all. More of which will be explained later.
A study in the US (which cost manufacturers many millions of dollars) showed a massive increase in total dissolved solids (TDS) in patients’ urine, when drinking water with a pH of below 7 (i.e. acidic water).
The two main culprits for water having a pH of lower than 7 are:
1. Reverse Osmosis
2. Water Distillers for drinking water
Other substances causing a low pH are soft drinks and alcohol.
Once minerals are extracted from water, the chemistry of water adjusts violently to become acidic. This happens because the buffers in the water that generally act to prevent this adjustment have been removed.
An interesting fact is that rain water that is near pure is also very acidic until it reaches the ground – once it reaches the ground it begins to dissolve minerals from the earth, this in turn balances the pH (the chemistry of the water).
Many very clean catchments such as roof tops and clean gutters, first flush diverters and poly tanks are extremely good at keeping water clean - however a trade-off for this is that the water could and most often does remain acidic.
If you have a dirty roof or a contaminated tank, the pH will rise and no longer be aggressive (acidic) but at a price – such as through other peripheral problems like fermentation of organics etc.
Back onto the topic at hand, it’s important that we make a stand and explain that there are no such thing as valuable minerals in drinking water unless they are ORGANIC, and organic materials are generally not used for correcting low pH water.
Almost all (barring a couple of exotic and expensive alternatives) pH Neutralizing cartridges are made from inorganic material like rock (commonly known as mineral stones).
These inorganic materials release either calcium or magnesium into the water, however these types of minerals are inorganic, not organic - so it's difficult for the body to absorb them or make any use of them at all.
So, in a nut shell, the words 'valuable minerals' is not relevant to post RO pH correction.
Filter Systems Australia does not deal in myths and magic. There are people selling all sorts of "living water products", with all sorts of mythical results, but consider this; The body needs hydration plain and simple. Now that is pure logic - not sales talk. The best form of hydration is clean, chemical free and impurity free H2O. Exactly as nature intended.
However, a down side to producing this sort of water is that stripping the water as we do, causes the water to become acidic again (back to its rain water condition). So, what's needed at this point is a trade-off...
To produce non-acidic water we need to add back some mineral, this is where the misconception arises. These are non organic minerals >>> therefore not valuable to your bodies health, but valuable in the fact that it's achieving an alkaline pH - which is vital to your health.
With all of this said, we have once again taken things a step further by producing a system that ticks all the health boxes. You get High Alkaline Water, Hydrogen Rich Water, Chemical and Toxin Free, Fluoride Free, Great tasting water.

Filter System Breakdown
Stage 1: GAC Inline Carbon Cartridge – replace every 6 months
This 5 micron inline carbon filter acts to protect the stage two membrane. It will remove the vast quantity of any taste odour or chemicals in the water and help to prolong the life of the membrane.
Stage 2: Asprinn USA Made Reverse Osmosis Membrane – 1-5 Year Life
The RO membrane is the "engine room" of your R/O. All the crucial work is done here, so all the filters before the membrane are primarily there to protect the membrane. This membrane is a 0.0001-micron rating. It is classed by the manufacturer to be a U.S 50 gallon per day membrane (190 Litres). However, these figures are for optimum working pressure/conditions and will vary in the domestic Aussie environment.
Stage 3: T300 Hydrogen-Rich Water Filter High Alkaline – Replace every 12 Months (4,000L)
This Filter is the Ultimate Post RO filter on the market. It is one of the only alkalising filters in the world that can raise and retain a constant pH between 8.5 and 10.5* over a 12 Month Period and potentially longer. This unique cartridge is made up from pure Sub-nano-meter minerals and contains pure Magnesium to provide a superior pH stability in the high alkaline range. This High Quality, FDA Certified Cartridge has multiple beneficial effects on Drinking Water.
This cartridge takes the place of our previous XtreaMn Alk cartridge.
Stage 4: Life Energy Ceramic (FAR Infrared) – Replace every 2 Years
This stage is truly delving into the health of the water; infrared beads are simply miraculous given that they don't even come into contact with the water. In keeping with Ultra-Violet Light, this filter has the ability to assist in the sanitising of the water with infrared emitting frequency balls through glass tubes. Just a few of the effects of the Stage 5 Infra-Red Rays on the body are: Activates the water molecules Improves oxygen levels in the body Warms and eliminates fats/ chemicals and toxins from the blood Accelerates blood flow Reduces acid levels in the body Improves Nervous system functionality Promotes the elimination of other wastes from our cells therefore reducing acidic levels Improved nervous system functionality Promotes the strengthening of the immune system Far Infra Red Rays Ionise and activate water molecules in our cells and blood therefore improve our blood circulation and overall health. Water makes up 70% of mass of the human body. FIR is able to activate, revitalise, reactivate, develop and strengthen various organs in our bodies when it is absorbed. In the various organs of human body, the circulatory system plays an important role, especially in micro-circulatory system. When there are problems with micro-circulatory system, various ailments will occur. FIR vibrating at a frequency similar to that of human body is able to penetrate the body activates cells and reactivates as well as strengthens the micro-circulatory systems. It regulates the blood flow and blood in blood vessels, which have been blocked due to blood clots and at the same time reactivate the vital energy in the body. FIR also acts to prevent bacteria growth, relieve pain and speed the recovery process.
Stage 5: 100% Activated Coconut Carbon Filter – Replace every 12 Months
Extremely high grade coconut carbon cartridge for maximum extraction of taste or odour issues. This is the same High Quality post carbon filter used in our Watermarked 4 Stage RO system. It provides clean, crisp tasting water. It also has a multitude of uses as an inline carbon filter.
Stage 6: Magnetic Water Energizer (Never needs replacing)
We are the leaders in magnetic water treatment system in Australia, exporting our Fluid Reactor magnetic systems to 8 countries around the world. Once again we have not promoted or actively been involved in the health industry because of our commitments to our core water treatment and filtration business. However, once again we have been encouraged to build and supply negative magnetic water treatment for human consumption and the evidence has been overwhelmingly positive. Magnetic energy is widely used in water treatment and we helped pioneer this technology in Australia. This inevitably led us to develop and supply a technology called negative defusing technology, meaning that when put in reverse it activates negative energy into drinking water. So many customers have benefited from this technology, reducing the symptoms of kidney stone and calcification of the arteries along with so many other advantages in drinking negatively charged water. It makes sense to add the Fluid Reactor magnetic system as the final stage of our 6 stage RO system.
How to Measure Your Tap Thread Size to Check Compatibility
This system comes with a standard 22mm Female Thread / 24mm Male Thread tap diverter adaptor per the picture below:
However, sometimes consumers run into trouble when buying a benchtop water filter if they have a non-standard-sized tap (i.e. a tap that is very modern but very skinny), and it’s hard to find an adaptor to fit – so it’s definitely best to check before you buy!
To check the size of your tap, screw the aerator off the end of your tap and take a measurement of the outer diameter of the thread (similar to the below example). Please make sure to measure it accurately from the middle of the thread (see example of the red line below).
***If you are not sure whether the tap adaptor that comes with this system will fit your tap, please follow the above instructions to take a picture of your tap thread measurement, and email the picture to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so our team can help double-check the compatibility for you!***

What makes this a Portable Reverse Osmosis Water Filter?
The most common form of Reverse Osmosis Water Filters is an Undersink Style, where the system is physically “Plumbed-In” under the sink in a permanent way. Our Portable RO Water Filters are designed to work off your kitchen tap using a diverter valve. This gives you the ability to take the system everywhere you go and can be easily and quickly installed on most standard kitchen taps.
How will I know if the system will connect to My Kitchen Tap?
Commonly, all kitchen taps use the same or similar type connections where the aerator goes (the mesh fitting that aerates the water when it comes out). There are some taps on the market that are a slim design and have small threads which unfortunately are not compatible. If your tap (thread where the aerator is) measures 22-24mm in diameter it will fit the standard diverter valve.
What if the system does NOT fit my Kitchen Tap?
There are alternatives you can use if this is the case. We have a range of fittings that suit different applications. You can use this system in the laundry on the ¾” washing machine inlet by using the Laundry Block Adaptor, this allows you to use your washing machine, and also the filter at the same time, diverting some of the water through the filter system. We also have a brass fitting that attaches to all standard ¾” Garden/Outdoor taps.
Is there a downside to using a portable system over the more common Undersink Variety of Reverse Osmosis Water Filters?
The only downside you will face is the flow rate or On Demand Capacity of the system. Reverse osmosis produces water at a rate of approx. 8-10L per Hour, which equates to a slow dribble of water. This is because the Reverse Osmosis Membrane has a micron rating of 0.0001 Microns, small enough to strip out all of the impurities in the water, including Fluoride. This is why the Undersink models contain a storage tank so you can collect water straight away from the tap on the sink. The Portable systems can be used to fill drinking water containers or dispensers as required.
Can I convert a Portable Reverse Osmosis Water Filter into an Undersink Filter?
Technically, yes. It is possible to do so however, there are several components that go into the Undersink models to convert it into a Plumbed in Automatic System. By the time you have purchased all of the necessary equipment, you will find it is cheaper to buy a brand new Undersink RO system.
How often do I need to change the filters?
As a general rule with Portable RO systems, the first filter (Or pre-Filter) should be replaced strictly every 6 months. This is highly recommended to help prolong the life of the more expensive and important Reverse Osmosis Membrane. If a pre filter is left on for too long, as the efficiency of chemical reduction is reduced, it may begin to let through residual traces of Chlorine through to the membrane. The Reverse Osmosis membrane is susceptible to damage from any number of chemicals that it comes into contact with, thus would begin to deteriorate more rapidly, potentially causing you to replace your membrane prematurely.
Will Reverse Osmosis remove 100% of Fluoride?
Reverse Osmosis filters can vary anywhere between 95% - 98% of effective removal of Fluoride. So technically speaking, Reverse Osmosis alone will not remove 100% of Fluoride from the water. In saying this, we can put this into perspective. The rough amount of Fluoride in municipal water can equate to 1L in an Olympic Sized Swimming Pool. If you then remove 98% of this, it then becomes 20mL per Olympic swimming pool. If you were to get the finished water analysed professionally by a NATA approved Laboratory, their instruments would not even be able to detect fluoride. So technically speaking, it won’t remove 100%, but the residual left over is beyond negligible. If, however, you want fluoride completely 100% removed, you can simply add a De-Ionising Resin Filter to the system which would render the water 100% Pure.
