Bacteria buildup in water filters – IMPORTANT


“I have been using the Woder 10K-DC Ultra High Capacity Direct Connect Water Filtration System for over an year and have been very happy with it. I will want to purchase your bathroom under sink water filter, the Woder 5K-DC and the more advanced undersink filtration system, the Woder 10K-Gen2.

The only question/concern I have is the bacterial buildup. How is it being prevented in these type of filters?”

Well, Jakub, thank you for asking! This should bother any house holder!

The formula of the filters you have mentioned above is bacteriostatic.

The way bacteriostasis is accomplished is by ion transfer and sharing electrons with any pathogen captured by the filter. The natural cationic media in the filter is active and has no known shelf life which means the filter will emit ions when we are all dead and gone.

Being bacteriostatic or maintaining bacteriostasis is important in any filter because it keeps organisms from self forming in filters like the algae and and various parasites similar to what you find in swimming pools once chemicals diminish.
