Ultrafiltration Systems

Ultrafiltration purifies and disinfects water to produce great-tasting water that is safe to use and drink. It has a very high effectiveness in removing bacteria (as well as other contaminants) and exceeds regulatory standards of water quality.

How does an ultrafiltration membrane work?

Ultrafiltration systems use a membrane filtration process similar to reverse osmosis. Water is pushed through a semi-permeable membrane which acts like a filter using slight pressure to separate particles like bacteria, viruses, germs, pollen, algae, and organic molecules from the water. Suspended particles and materials of high molecular weight are unable to pass through the ultrafiltration membrane, allowing only clean water and healthful, dissolved minerals to pass through.

Benefits of ultrafiltration

In addition to outstanding contaminant and bacteria removal rates (over 99.99%), ultrafiltration uses innovative technology which lets you flush (clean) the membrane whenever it gets full of contaminants. Don’t keep buying expensive replacement filters or membranes you can’t flush.

You can tell when it’s time to flush the membrane because there will be a drop in water pressure. Simply turn the valve to flush the membrane, Membrane should be replaced every 2 – 5 years (system dependent).

Another benefit of ultrafiltration is that it even works in low-pressure situations, and there’s no need for electricity or a pump.

Ultrafiltration is a great alternative to reverse osmosis:

  • Zero waste water during the purification process. A conventional reverse osmosis system may waste 3 – 25 gallons of water to produce 1 gallon of reverse osmosis water.
  • Preserves healthful minerals in drinking water. One downside of RO water is that it’s missing naturally occurring minerals which are beneficial to health and the taste of water. (RO water has an acidic pH and may taste “flat”)
  • No storage tank. Delivers water on demand. Storage tanks can become “incubators” for bacteria so ditching the storage tank means you’re not drinking harmful bacteria. No storage tank also means the system takes up less space.

Ultrafiltration is not recommended for water with a high TDS level (> 500ppm) because it does not remove TDS. The perfect amount of TDS in drinking water is 300 – 500 ppm, and ultrafiltration maintains that range by preserving healthful minerals.
