The product range for filtering water at home includes 3 types of devices. The first one is flow-through filters, installed in the home water supply network, e.g. for taps or water supply pipes. The second is a novelty that has appeared on the market recently – a filtering bottle. The bottle is the perfect companion every day, whether at work or while practicing sports, walking, etc. It can be filled anywhere where there is access to tap water.
The third are jugs with filter cartridges, very popular and present at homes for almost 50 years. These devices guarantee the purification of water from chemical impurities (such as heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, chlorine) and mechanical ones (e.g. sand, rust, impurities leached from the surface of hydraulic installations). They also improve the taste and smell of water and soften it, so that no lime deposits appear on the dishes and drinks. This is also important for household appliances, in which we use water (coffee maker, kettle, iron, etc.), extending their life and practically eliminating the need for descaling.
Filtering jug – how does it work?
The Dafi filter jug is made of two main components – a water tank (made of glass or plastic) and a filter element with a properly selected cartridge. The water tank has a capacity of 2 to 4 litres. All the elements used in the Dafi jugs are made of safe and approved materials for drinking water; they do not contain harmful Bisphenol type A and are regularly tested in renowned research institutions.
The tap water is poured into the filtering part and then flows through the filter. It contains two types of substance: ion exchange resin and activated carbon. The combination of these substances makes the water thoroughly cleaned, chlorine and its derivatives are eliminated, which improves its taste and the water has no chlorine odor. Possible deposits, sand or rust that may appear in the water, e.g. from the old plumbing system, are also retained. The water is ready for direct consumption or further processing.
