AQUAPHOR City filter bottles have been independently tested to meet the EU standard for plastic parts in contact with water. Well, actually, we’ve always focused on quality of materials and parts, and there’re a lot of international certificates stating that. Now, with one more official proof on our hands, we can proudly remind you that we manufacture completely safe, 100% BPA-free filters. Nothing extra, just water!
What is a food grade material? It is an inert and safe substance suitable for intended use, not posing a risk of food or water contamination with toxic compounds. Thus, not affecting consumer health in any way.
Plastics are among those closely monitored materials. Plastic products, and water filters as well, must comply with the EU Regulation No 10/2011, all its amendments and relevant test procedures.
Does material safety guarantee product safety?
It's important to test the entire end product and not only its parts or material. Strictly speaking, safety of the material and safety of the whole product are not the same. See, you can take some really good material (in our case, durable and high-quality copolyester Tritan), and then spoil it with rusty equipment, high temperatures or wrong storage conditions.
As a result, the product itself will be unsafe and contain impurities. Therefore, it’s always the final product that needs to be tested in order to prove that not only the material is impeccable, but also the organization of the manufacturing process.
Another important feature is that our bottles are also eco-friendly: one City filter cartridge replaces 100 ordinary plastic bottles. No single-use plastic, no harmful impact on the environment.
It’s never too late to start jogging and getting fit. Just do not forget to maintain water balance. Our light, portable and stylish AQUAPHOR City bottle will help you with that. Saving nature and taking care of your own health right on the go!
