Original Biostone filter from AlkaViva (Jupiter) helped remove chlorine, fluoride
and bad taste from source water as well as Guardia, cryptosporidium, and
some common water micro-organisms and contaminants. What remained was
good tasting, clean healthy water with the essential alkalizing minerals
new Biostone Plus Filter specifically targets the removal of chlorine
and chloramines as well and is ideally suited for municipal waters that
are treated with these chemicals.
Biostone Plus fits the same Ionizers as the standard Biostone filters.
The Biostone Plus is a 9 stage filter that includes calcium with
magnesium, tourmaline, and intermittent layers that target chloramines
and chlorine and some heavy metals. The calcium content is premium
grade, certified by the Japanese Government, and helps re-mineralize the
water .It also changes some fluoride molecules to a benign compound of
calcium fluoride. Tourmaline improves waters ability to carry an ionized
charge naturally decreasing the ORP. New Biostone Plus also includes
vortex technology for improved performance.The
Biostone Plus is manufactured in the USA with NSF certified components.
This filters life expectancy is approximately 1000 gallons based on
relatively clean source water. The filter is biodegradable and should be
changed annually if you haven't used 1000 gallons.
