Once prepared for use in accordance with the owners’ manual, the filter jug purifies water poured into the funnel by running it through the filter under the force of gravity. The filter cartridge irreversibly traps contaminants, thanks to a patented sorption mix with Aqualen.
The Aquaphor Ideal is equipped with a mechanical counter, which will help you change the filter in a timely manner. In case your water has a high level of sediment or other mechanical contaminates the filter may require earlier replacement.
