What You Need to Know About the Nano Silver Bacteriostatic Carbon Filters

Nano Silver Carbon Filters are Coconut Shell Granular Activated Carbon Filters with Silver Impregnated.

But, why silver?

Silver inhibits the reproduction of bacteria, but does not kill bacteria.

Therefore, if you have bacteria in the water: Bacteria IN = Bateria OUT

UV Light or an Aragon Filter is required after the silver carbon if you are filtering untreated water. If you are filtering untreated water (bore water or rain water) you need a UV Light after, or a filter cartridge with 0.5 micron. Something that will block the eggs, the bugs in the water, and kills bacteria. See Aragon Filters

Bacteria multiplies in filters purifying untreated water. Because bacteria multiplies in untreated water. Filters treating this type of water, need bacteriostatic properties to stop the breeding within. Therefore, if you are filtering untreated water with a single stage filter, we recommend:

Single Stage Whole House Water Filter

20 Micron Nano Silver Carbon Filter:

  • For untreated water (Needs UV Light)
  • For Town/Government Water
  • Low Pressure Drop Carbon Cartridge
  • Stops bacteria from breeding within the filter
  • Great Carbon
  • Absorb Chlorine (taste)
  • Water Pass through easier
  • Without sediment protection, it is a safer bet than other finer micron filters (5, 1, 0.5)
5 Micron Nano Silver Carbon Filter:
  • For untreated water (Needs UV Light)
  • For Town/Government Water
  • Stops bacteria from breeding within the filter
  • Great Carbon
  • Absorb Chlorine (taste)
Finer micron filters block without a pre-filter. Other filters with finer microns will block easily without a pre-filter. If you are filtering untreated water, and require a finer pore size (1 micron or 0.5 micron) we recommend a Two Stage Whole House Filter with:
Two Stage Whole House Water Filter

Sediment Pre-Filter and 1 Micron Nano Silver Carbon Filter:

  • For untreated water (Needs a pleated pre-filter for sediments)
  • For Town/Government Water (Needs a polyspun pre-filter for sediments)
  • Stops bacteria from breeding within the filter
  • Great Carbon
  • Absorb Chlorine (taste)
Sediment Pre-Filter and 0.5 Micron Nano Silver Carbon Filter:
  • For untreated water (Needs a pleated pre-filter for sediments)
  • For Town/Government Water (Needs a polyspun pre-filter for sediments)
  • Stops bacteria from breeding within the filter
  • Great Carbon
  • Absorb Chlorine (taste)

What's the Nano Silver Filter Filtration Media?

When water passes through the Nano Silver Coconut Shell Activated Carbon Block Cartridge, water is forced through the small pores of the Nano Silver Coconut Shell Activated Carbon Block Cartridge, where mechanical filtration and physical/ chemical adsorption reduce chlorine, taste and odour, sediments, and a wide range of contaminants of concern —VOCs (pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals).

The Nano Silver Activated Carbon Block Filter has bacteriostatic properties. Silver Impregnated Filters inhibit the reproduction of bacteria within the filter.

How often should I replace the filter?

  • The Nano Silver Filter should be replaced every year.
    • *As tested and verified by manufacturer’s laboratory
    • *Replacement Frequency also depends on water quality and usage.
    • *Carbon filters are recommended to be replaced every year.
