Full Australian WaterMark Certification

These Water Filtration Systems are certified to WaterMark Standards AS/NZS 3497 under Certificate number 23247. WaterMark is the standard that is required by law for a qualified plumber in Australia to install any item on municipal town water. All products used under this certification will give you peace of mind knowing that your water filter complies with Australian plumbing codes. Our WaterMark filtration systems are hand assembled here in Australia and are batch tested to ensure quality and workmanship for your filtration products.

This kit has been put together to meet the demands of many customers using tank water.

Tank water will always require filtration as it isn't treated like municipal water supplies. The most cost-effective and total solution to do so is to use UV Sterilisation, which will ensure 100% eradication of all Bacteria and Viruses from your house water supply.

The only alternative would be to use an under-sink filter for drinking water, which is effective at stopping cysts such as giardia but won't protect you from harmful bacteria or viruses such as E-Coli which can enter the water through frogs excrement. On top of this, all other taps (i.e the shower, basins, and other taps) won't be treated so you can still be exposed to these viruses and bacteria through means other than ingestion.

Calcite Filter - pH Correction

Nowadays many people are getting brand new Poly Rainwater tanks installed on their property. Rainwater is commonly known to be in a very acidic state (around 5pH) naturally, and it is only when it comes into contact with earth or other organic material that the pH rises to neutral and even alkaline levels. However when you have clean gutters and a new clean poly tank, there is no organic or inorganic matter to dissolve into the water to raise the pH, thus you are left with highly acidic water sitting in your tank. This can cause extensive health issues in the long term but it may also affect your plumbing work throughout your house. Copper is known to be the worst affected part of your house by acidic water, you will notice a blue/green tinge to the water which is a signal that copper is dissolving into your water. Acidic water works its way from the inside out and if left long enough untreated, may cause your entire copper pipework to fail and need replacing.

This brings us to the solution to acidic water, The Calcite Filter.

There are many noteworthy features that need to be addressed with this system.

The system is also fitting with a Manual Multi-Port Valve for easy and efficient backwashing of the system, again, saving you time and effort to maintain the system. This will also mean you do not need a second expensive post filter to catch the fine particles/dust produced by the calcite when it is first used.

The filter is made up of 2 main filter components:

Firstly: A bag of filter gravel that acts as a sand filter, filtering out dirt sediment, and other particulates in the water.

Secondly: We use a High-Grade Calcite Marble filter media. This calcite is the Highest Quality available in Australia. This in turn will provide much better consistency and filtering life.

The way this filter works is by dissolving traces of calcium into the water to help buffer the pH back to neutral. On average you will need to refill about 1/2 to 1 bag full of Calcite Marble per year (which depends on water usage + pH of incoming water). 

The drop tube is pre-cut to length and fits snugly in the centre hole of the vessel (there is a port in the bottom of the vessel that the drop tube will sit in snugly). There will be no need to cut the drop tube.

We recommend that you buy a few spare bags of calcite with your order so you have it on hand for when you need to top up the calcite filter.

Please contact us prior to ordering to ensure that you are getting the correct system for your requirements.

Triple Whole House Water Filter

Stage 1: 5 Micron NSF Pleated Sediment Filter

Very popular for tank water when you have a lot of debris like leaves, dirt, or similar - particularly after fresh rain. The washable pleats on this filter are designed to be washed and reinstalled. However, please consider that if this is drinking water you need to be careful not to overuse a pleated filter because it will eventually gather bacterial contaminants and become smelly over time. If the water isn't all that bad you might want to consider using a Polyspun Disposable Filter and replace it when it becomes dirty. This is also useful for bore water when you have a small amount of iron or manganese bacteria as it is easy and quick to clean.

Stage 2: 5 Micron NSF Polyspun Sediment Filter

Poly Spun is the best type of filtration you can get. They do not accumulate bacteria as much as other materials, as well as being high flow and low-pressure drop. Effective in all applications. 5 micron is a reasonably fine filtration and would be suited on high-quality bore water or town water or in front of RO systems.

100% Virgin Polypropylene material - Compatible for Our Watermark Certified Systems

Purefer Polypropylene filters are made using a unique single nozzle manufacturing process, where a single nozzle blows melted polypropylene onto a spinning 5-micron filter core. As more Polypropylene is blown, the filter diameter gradually widens and the outer density of the filter decreases.

This unique manufacturing process gives Purefer filters a true Gradient Density that allows for a greater dirt holding capacity and higher filtration efficiency compared to standard melt blown filters made from multiple nozzle blowers.

Stage 3: 5 Micron PURE Carbon Block Cartridge:

Pure Coconut Carbon Block Filters are made from a combination of high-performance coconut shell carbon, unique binders and industry-leading manufacturing processes to deliver trade quality carbon block filters. They deliver exceptionally low pressure drop while maintaining a high dirt holding capacity with excellent contaminant reduction capabilities.

Pure Carbon Blocks are registered in compliance with NSF/ANSI 42, 53, and 61 for several things, including VOCs, THMs, Lead & Heavy Metal Reduction, Chloramine Reduction & Chlorine Taste & Odour reduction. This also includes meeting standards of purity & safety of the materials used.

The perfect carbon block filter is made from 100% Coconut Shell Carbon, which creates what many believe to be the sweetest tasting water. The unique pore structure of this carbon is well suited for chemical absorption, including VOC's, while reducing chlorine and chemicals that contribute to taste and odour.

Features:

  • High chlorine, taste & odour reduction
  • Long Life
  • High Flow with Low Micron Rating
  • Sweet tasting, pure freshwater
  • No release of carbon fines
  • Removal of VOC from water supply
  • Decreases COD and BOD
  • Purification of MSG
  • Low pressure drop
  • 5 micron filtration
  • Meets the requirements of the FDA for food and beverage contact

Ultraviolet Water Sanitation System

UV Water Sanitation is by far the most important filtration process when it comes to rainwater treatment. Rainwater harbours bacteria of all types but in some cases, much more harmful bacteria may be present in the tank. E-Coli is a common bacterium in tank water and is due mostly to frogs living in and around your tanks/catchment. Ultraviolet sanitation works by breaking down the cell wall of a micro-organism allowing oxidation to occur which in turn prevents the bacteria from multiplying until it is finally eradicated. Ultraviolet filtration is a chemical-free solution to water sanitation creating no by-products in the water.

​We recommend adding the optional UV Thermal Relief Valve for any situation where the UV system is installed and water is not continuously running through the system. This will prevent the UV system from overheating and damaging the seals

UV System Maintenence Notes:

Ultraviolet systems are rated based on a dosage level of UV-C radiation into the water (mJ/cm²), with 30mJ/cm² being the standard level of disinfection and a minimum dose of 40mJ/cm² required to comply with Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. Our lamps are rated with a 9000 hour (1 year) lifespan, after which point the lamp will naturally degrade and the level of radiation produced by the lamp cannot be guaranteed.

The UV lamp sits inside a quartz thimble, which protects the electrical components of the lamp from making contact with the water. We specifically use quartz (fused silica) for this application because it is strong, exhibits thermal resistance, and has excellent UV transmission properties.

However, over time, metal ions fused within the silica structure of the quartz thimble interfere with the UV-C radiation produced by the lamp, which reduces the UV transparency of the glass and causes it to become fragile. This process is called solarization.

Tannin, bio-film, algae, and scale can also build up on the outside of the glass thimble, further preventing ultraviolet light produced by the lamp from penetrating through the thimble, and impairing the system's ability to sanitise the water passing through.

Thus, we recommend replacing the lamp every 12 months, and the thimble every 1-2 years.

Technical Data

UV systems are not designed to be turned on and off. Doing this may shorten your lamp life. Lamps should be changed every year. The lamp may still be working, but after 1 year, the power may not be able to kill all bacteria. The Quartz thimble should be replaced every 2 years. If hardness is high it is recommended to service and clean the UV thimble every 6 months or as required to remove and scale that may build up.
