The sediment filter is for use in the position #1 for dual filter units. It is a fibre filter that removes particulate. In water treatment all sediment filters have ratings expressed as either nominal (typical pore size) or absolute (all pores size at or smaller than).
It also will extend the life of the filter in position #2 by keeping sediment away from the second filter.
With 1 micron absolute filtration this new and improved sediment filter is capable of filtering out contaminants up to 5 times smaller than that of the original filter. The filter life indicator on the Athena will still continue to monitor the life of the filter and should be replaced when the digital display reads 9999, (after approximately 2000 litres have run through the filter).
Part Number: - Replacement Filter for the the Athena Ionizers in Position 1 (Left Filter) Used with all water sources (Town water or Tank Water)
Only AlkaViva has the confidence to test their water filters using an independent US EPA-Certified lab to ensure you are drinking not only alkaline water but clean and purified water with the best contaminant removal available. See the results here.
