Filter change water ionizer | FAQ's Filter Media

Almost all water ionizers have one or even two integrated activated carbon water filters

These should be replaced regularly.

According to the DIN standard every 6 months. In practice, we know that customers change the filters every 6-12 months. If it is a dual filter device, the second filter is usually replaced twice as rarely.

We ask you the following: Please change the second filter at least every 18 months. Longer contact times really don't make sense because you can't taste pollutants.

And an activated carbon filter that has been in contact with water for too long does not provide the best conditions for safely retaining chemicals that have been collected for months. If you compare how much water crates you save yourself or how much you enjoy drinking this water. Makes sense not to save money in this area.



Why change a water filter? | kH Asenbaum

FAQ's filter changes and filter media

Dirk S.: Are there water filter certificates which filter out “toxins”? and how is the pH increased so quickly (is something added to the water)?

Hello Mr. S.,

Your first question is general Filter and Water Ionizers.

So: You are unlikely to find water filter certificates because no laboratory issues such a thing. What you find are only exemplary analyzes of samples, which typically result in pollutant reduction values ​​of between 90 and 99% for the individual substances.

This is typical for most known filter materials such as activated carbon granules, activated carbon blocks, aqualene activated carbon, ceramics, KDF, hollow fiber membrane, filter fleeces, which are integrated into the filters also installed in water ionizers. The basic rule is: In the first filter layers the larger pollutants and in the last filter layers the smaller pollutants are prevented from flowing further, like in an ever-closer-meshed grid. A reduction performance of 90% is usually stated because more cannot be measured, as there are lower limits of the usual laboratory methods. It can be even more precise using mass spectrometry, but that is unaffordable with over 1000 theoretically possible pollutants. So if you get a “filter certificate” from any manufacturer, they are a fraud. Water filter certificates

Because an analyzed sample is only a tiny part of the life of the filter. A filter needs the first 50 liters to run in. It then loses power until it reaches its capacity limit. This cannot be determined exactly either, because it of course depends on the filtration performance, which is defined solely by the water introduced.

If there are a lot of pollutants, the filter doesn't last as long as it does if there are a few. Therefore, the DIN regulation was set at a safe value of 6 months, after which a water filter should be changed. We know from almost 15 years of experience that many filters actually protect against pollutants for much longer if the water used does not have as many pollutants. But it's certainly not wrong to stick to this guideline, even if it occasionally hurts your wallet.

For multiple filter systems with 2 or more filter cartridges connected in series, we recommend changing at least the first filter cartridge after six months. The second then after a year, because it no longer gets as many pollutants.

Further downstream and even narrower-meshed filters then also filter all mineral ions out of the water, some of which are definitely desirable. This is called reverse osmosis. You can then add the desired minerals back in, which undoubtedly results in optimized drinking water. The reason why water ionizers do not work with such water is technical. To date, no reverse osmosis system has been able to generate sufficient water flow to operate a water ionizer.

Water filter certificates - Cross section of a water filter
Water filter certificates – cross section of a water filter

Your second question is easier to answer: Is anything added to the water in the water ionizer?

The answer is: Yes, namely the electrons that come from the current supply to the electrodes in the Electrolytic cell be transferred into the water. However, these only end up in the alkaline part of the water produced by a water ionizer (i.e. the alkaline active water that we drink). Ultimately, these form neutral H2 gas from acidic H+ ions, which can dissolve in water up to an upper limit of 1,6 mg/l. This H2 gas is the energy storage that makes this water the most useful drinking water in the world today. Your question refers to the water from the water ionizer, where does the high pH value come from?

You need to know that the pH value is determined by the concentration of H+ ions. It corresponds to the same concentration of OH- ions when the water becomes neutral. If you now put a non-water-permeable membrane into the water, you separate H+ ions and OH- ions. If you still conduct an electric current through the water, the + or – charged ions gradually sort and accumulate in the two water chambers separated by the membrane. So what is added to the alkaline active water comes from the water itself. Alkaline active water from an ionizer does not require any other additives to work.

For more information, please read my book, available for free under Books www.euroultimedia.de for download.

Back to the topic of filters: One of our biggest pollutant ghosts is nitrate.

Most of today's filter systems cannot remove this from the water. There are special exchanger filters for this, but it usually remains in the drinking water, except for reverse osmosis filters. You should pay attention to this. The nitrate value is primarily an index value. Nowadays, nitrate itself can be seen as beneficial to health because it enables the release of nitric oxide (NO), which reduces elevated blood pressure in particular and is a very important dietary component. Therefore, the foods richest in nitrates, such as beetroot, spinach or lettuce, are also considered to be health-promoting.

The problem with nitrate-rich drinking water is not the nitrate, but rather the agricultural components that are normally present, such as pesticides, herbicides, hormones, drug residues, etc. Where there is a lot of nitrate in the water, these harmful substances can usually be suspected. Therefore, with activated carbon filtration technology, we strive to filter nitrate-rich water for its by-products, which we usually find in the organic range under the organic total TOC. Most water filters pass nitrate itself, as well as calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium, because it is more beneficial than harmful.

Question about the mineral salts and trace elements contained in water after the filtration and ionization of water

Dear Mr. Akgün,

I would like to buy a water ionizer from you, but I still have a few questions that are currently bothering me. It would be very nice if you could help me with this.

Question 1 – How many minerals and trace elements are contained in the water after the filtering process? At the moment I mainly drink “Gerolsteiner” because the content is very high compared to other mineral water and I of course hope that after filtering the tap water, the values ​​will be approximately the same.

Question 2 – What do the natural microorganisms in water actually look like? Are you included or are you filtered out?

Question 3 – What is currently the best model in terms of filter quality, as well as the mineralization and energization of the water?

Thanks in advance! I think you can quickly see where my concerns lie. Based on this, could you recommend a good product to me? That would be great!

With kind regards,

Answer Yasin Akgün about filtering and minerals, trace elements, bacteria and microorganisms

Dear Mr. G.,
Thank you for your email and the good questions, which I would like to answer as follows:

1. The filters used in the water ionizers hardly change the water other than filtering out the chemicals.
Electrolysis then separates the minerals, but only partially.
The stronger the level set and the lower the flow, the stronger the separation.
So you can e.g. In the strongest setting at the lowest flow, bring approx. 30% of the alkaline minerals from the acidic side into the alkaline water. And vice versa too.
So it depends a bit on the mineral composition of the input water.
Depending on whether you tend to have more alkaline minerals in the water or not, the end result may even contain more minerals if you ionize more alkaline.
Everything is not easy to express in numbers.
One thing I can say is that your tap water tastes a lot better because you partially remove the unwanted acidic minerals and replace them with more alkaline minerals.

2. Microorganisms are such a thing. Activated carbon filters bacteria, but how safe is the question.
And viruses, that can then be safely ruled out.
Only the ECA-Tractor has a hollow fiber membrane filter as the final filter instance. This ensures that bacteria, viruses and microplastics do not get through. Not semi-certain:
www.aquacentrum.de/shop/aquavolta-eca-water-tractor-eca-anlage/
For all other water ionizers, including the ECA, I would like to add this model as I am also the most convinced of it:
www.aquacentrum.de/shop/wasserfilter-set-aquaphor/

3. The above model is not only, but mainly because of its extremely good hydrogen content, which it ionizes into the water.
Twice as high, with the same pH value as our next best devices:
www.aquacentrum.de/shop/eos-touch-wasserioniser/
Or www.aquacentrum.de/shop/eos-genesis-wasserioniser/
www.aquacentrum.de/shop/aquavolta-elegance-untertisch-wasserioniser/
Or www.aquacentrum.de/shop/aquavolta-cavendish-9-wasserioniser/

And they are almost twice as good as normal water ionizers.

Hope this helps you.
Looking forward to more questions.
All the best from Munich
Yours, Yasin Akgün

Brigitte W.: Which calcium do you recommend for the calcium shaft of my water ionizer?

Pay attention to germ protection

The addition of calcium is necessary for very soft water, otherwise the alkaline active water will not be adequately buffered with water that is very low in minerals (< dH 5), which means that there is hardly any sufficient deacidification effect. Nowadays, however, not all continuous water ionizers have this Calcium shaft, but the calcium is already integrated into the filter cartridges and the amount is designed for the entire filter life. Calcium sulfite is usually used. Some manufacturers also buffer their filters with magnesium, which is also suitable as a hardness agent. The reason for not using the calcium shaft is mainly of a hygienic nature: Since the calcium shaft is located behind the filter in the direction of the water flow, there is no longer any protection against germs. If the customer also introduces germs when filling in the calcium, a biofilm can form there under unfavorable circumstances.[/bs_col][bs_col class="col-md-6"]I therefore generally recommend using a filter with hardness formers such as Use calcium or magnesium to fill calcium through the shaft. If you do, you should check regularly and while maintaining the greatest possible hygiene whether deposits have formed in the shaft and, if necessary, use disinfectants such as —> Anolyte remove.

Manufacturers usually offer coral calcium beads for calcium supply. These gradually dissolve in the water flowing through them. For water with a hardness of dH 15 or more, I did not observe any dissolution, even after a year.
Glycerol calcium and phosphoric calcium are also available, which also dissolve in harder water. However, I am not aware of any documentation about the usefulness or harmfulness of these variants, so I recommend the variant with coral calcium, which can be considered safe, since our domestic drinking water also contains coral calcium from the sediments of the ancient seas and our organism can be considered adapted to it.

Dear Mr. Ehrlich,

I'm interested in an important question about water filter media if you could help me:

Could I theoretically and practically put the jug filter media in here, in the very close-meshed filter sieve for tea, and then just let it stay there, for example 1 hour, preferably shaking it back and forth in the satchel/bag, and then be sure that the filter has done its job and filtered out any heavy metals that may be in the water?

The tea/filter sieve is really good, an example on the right.

The lid of the filter/tea strainer is also very finely perforated with holes.

If that worked, I think we would really have a great solution, without having to connect to a tap or a bulky jug filter, even though Aquaphoer has really thought it out!

The bottle would be more like 0,7 or/and 1 liter or 0,4 liters

Better bigger, I thought?

What size would be ideal in your opinion?

The smaller, the faster the filter effect?

Could the whole thing be solved more elegantly by simply pushing an Aquaphor jug ​​filter insert into the middle of the bottle and letting the water flow through?

We would have the option of simply having a glass ring of exactly the right size installed in the glass for the Aquaphor Ideal, and then pouring it into the top of the bottle with two bottles screwed one on top of the other, and it goes through into the bottom bottle.

The filter is then closer to the bottom bottle

Well, those are ideas. Would like to publish your answer too if I may. If necessary, without mentioning your last name.

Oh yes, that one AquaVolta® hydrogen booster

There is also an electrolysis bottle that only makes hydrogen water with a PEM membrane.

We now have the AquaVolta Mini in our range, see video on the right.

And soon, I hope this year, the “Made in Munich” electrolysis bottle with acidic and alkaline water as end products will be available.

This has now been thought through to the end. I just need the hardware, i.e. prototype, etc.

There's so much happening in the industry right now, Thank you for your support

All the best from Munich

Yours, Yasin Akgün

Calcium sulfite in water filters – is it a concern?

Good afternoon Mr. Akgün,

good afternoon Mr. Asenbaum,

Would you please explain to me again how “bad” the calcium sulfite in the filters is, especially considering that we also use plenty of filtered water (without ionization)? How relevant is the amount released compared to other foods containing sulfite (wine, etc.)? Thank you.

With kind regards,

Oliver A

Answer from Karl Heinz Asenbaum about the safety of calcium sulfite

Hello Mr. A.,

There's nothing to worry about in terms of quantity.

I have yet to see any analysis in which the calcium and sulfur content increased due to the calcium sulfite used in almost all water filters. It is a special calcium sulfite ceramic that does not dissolve. If you saw open an old filter, the white ceramic beads are all still there. It is primarily used to remove chlorine and also pulls heavy metals out of the water. It serves not for enrichment with calcium, as some falsely claim.

There are other calcium compounds that are added via a shaft in areas with extremely soft water. In our part of the world this is completely unnecessary.

Additional answer from Yasin Akgün about filters without calcium sulfite

Dear Mr. A.,

If you absolutely do not want to have calcium sulfite in the filter, we have the following solutions, even if I also believe that everything is not an issue and has a purpose, just as it comes standard from the factory:

  1. You can have your filters in the ionizer capped and filter the tap water with a pre-filter. To do this, you would have to send the system to us and go without the water for a week. The pre-filter system would be this: www.aquacentrum.de/shop/wasserfilter-set-aquaphor/
  2. You could replace filter number 1, which contains calcium sulfite, with a variant without calcium sulfite that we specifically requested. However, that only works with this one AquaVolta® EOS Revelation and AquaVolta® EOS Genesis. We can talk about replacing your water ionizer at any time.

Hope that clears things up, best regards, Yasin Akgün

After changing the filter, how can I dispose of the replaced filter in an environmentally friendly manner?

  • Dispose of filters in an environmentally friendly manner? This is a difficult question if you take “environmentally friendly” seriously. Apparently no one on the official side has yet dealt in detail with the environmental impact of collected toxins in household filters. Presumably because the total amount is relatively small and is captured by the exhaust gas filters used during waste incineration.
  • According to the current waste regulations, these filters are considered “residual waste” in Germany.

You might also be interested in this article: You will actually not find drinking water completely free of pollution anywhere in Central Europe. The limit values ​​of the drinking water regulations are often viewed critically, even though they are lower than for mineral water. What is important is that a pollutant such as lead or cadmium remains a pollutant even if it is below the limit value, so only water that is as low in pollutants as possible should be activated. For this reason, highly effective pre-filters are installed in every continuous water ionizer for producing drinking water.

The main reason why I previously recommended devices without a pre-filter was the purity of the water in some places - but this is decreasing due to the pollution of our environment. In addition, many people already have a drinking water filter in use before purchasing a water ionizer. Since most cartridges for external drinking water filters are much cheaper than those in water ionizers, it is in the consumer's interest to connect a water ionizer there so as not to have to buy the expensive manufacturer cartridges. Unfortunately, there is a trend to equip manufacturer cartridges with an electronic chip that does not allow the original filter to be bypassed. However, I have recently been working more and more successfully against this trend, and only a few devices on the German-speaking market put customers in this straitjacket.

The risk of contamination usually only exists with can filters that are in direct contact with air. The filter cartridges in water ionizers are integrated airtight into the water flow. So the risk is no higher than with tap water itself. Since all the internal filters I know of have more or less high-quality activated carbon… (Continue reading)

Ute S: Is it better to have a Biostone bioceramic filter or is an activated carbon filter sufficient?

Aquacentrum-Allsbon-Dion-Special-Replacement-Filter-Subscription-3

Bioceramic filters also usually contain activated carbon. These advertising terms are used to describe filters that additionally contain elements from the semi-precious stone tourmaline. Tourmaline granules are also available as a bath additive, for example. Tourmalines emit “far infrared radiation” (FIR) and react to changes in temperature or pressure by releasing electrons.
EM bioceramics are also often mentioned, meaning that so-called “effective microorganisms” are also processed in them. These also include, for example, lactic acid bacteria. However, these are killed during the ceramic firing process, so their effective effect must be doubted. In fact, such filters initially produce a slightly lower redox potential in the same water ionizer than that water ionizer would produce under the same conditions with a pure activated carbon filter. These filters are therefore usually offered for devices with lower electrolysis strength. (—> Chemical water ionizers.) However, in my experience, this electrical effect of tourmaline diminishes significantly after just a few weeks of use and does not last until the next filter change.
Some find water that has been purified with a bioceramic filter to be tastier and more digestible than if it has only been purified with activated carbon. As unobjective as these statements may be, I personally don't feel any difference, but it is striking that I have never heard anyone say that water from a bioceramic filter tastes worse than that from a pure activated carbon filter. In any case, apart from the higher price, there is nothing fundamental against a bioceramic filter.

Wolfgang Q.: In the past, you recommended devices without a pre-filter if the tap water had no objections. Why are you trying to convince me to use a filter now? Don't they also have a risk of contamination? What should you consider when selecting a filter?

  • In fact, you will not find drinking water completely free of pollution anywhere in Central Europe. The limit values ​​of the drinking water regulations are often viewed critically, even though they are lower than for mineral water. What is important is that a pollutant such as lead or cadmium remains a pollutant even if it is below the limit value, so only water that is as low in pollutants as possible should be activated.

  • The risk of contamination usually only exists with can filters that are in direct contact with air. The filter cartridges in water ionizers are integrated airtight into the water flow. So the risk is no higher than with tap water itself. Since all of the internal filters I know of are made with more or less high-quality activated carbon, some of which are sprayed with antimicrobial silver, contamination of the water with germs is highly unlikely due to the germ-binding properties of the activated carbon. However, the service life of the activated carbon should be taken into account according to the manufacturer's recommendations. A filter that is not replaced correctly is certainly a risk of contamination. You wouldn't go over changing your car's oil when it's due because then there would be a risk of engine damage.
  • Once an activated carbon filter is wet, the service life specified by the manufacturer begins (usually between 6-12 months). It is independent of whether 1 liter or 10.000 liters of water flowed through. In addition, it is important to ensure that the filter capacity is not exceeded during the period of use (3000 - 16.000 liters, depending on the manufacturer and cartridge size).
  • A filter should remain a filter, i.e. remove pollutants from the water and not add chemicals to improve the pH value or the redox potential. That this kind of —> chemical water ionization is nonsensical, as I have already explained elsewhere. The only addition that I think is important is the addition of calcium and/or magnesium for soft water areas if the water ionizer does not have its own calcium port.
  • If the water situation is generally good, an activated carbon granulate filter is sufficient. If there is organic chemical pollution in the water from agriculture, pharmacy and industry, an activated carbon block filter should be used.
  • If dangerous heavy metals are present, even below limit values, the filter should also contain KDF filter material or a corresponding special filter should be installed upstream under the sink. There are also devices with 2 built-in pre-filters, which are then configured accordingly.
  • It is controversial whether additional ceramic filter elements (—> Bioceramic filter) are more useful. In any case, they are an alternative to silver vapor deposition, which is sometimes undesirable. In principle, silver vapor deposition has become almost standard, at least for activated carbon granules. Since these are nanolayers of silver, no harmful effects on the water are assumed. Even refrigerators are now coated with silver to prevent contamination.
  • Reverse osmosis filters are not suitable as pre-filters for water ionizers because they also filter minerals and therefore do not produce drinking water. In order to use such water, it must be re-mineralized with another filter cartridge. —> Reverse osmosis
  • For problem water and private wells of varying quality, you can also use ultrafiltration hollow fiber membrane filters, which are many times finer than activated carbon filters.
  • You can recognize problem water by looking at the drinking water analysis available from every water supplier. Especially when it comes to cations, you should make sure that no pollutant measurement value is close to the limit value, as electrolysis introduces more cations into the alkaline active water. If you live in an old building, you should also have a heavy metal analysis carried out on a water sample from your home.
  • Not all manufacturers provide filter test analyses, i.e. laboratory documents that prove the performance of the pre-filter cartridges. Since there is hardly any universally contaminated water, such analyzes are obtained from water that has been artificially contaminated with all conceivable pollutants. From the percentage of pollutants filtered out, you can then read the efficiency of the filter for the individual pollutants. However, when carrying out such tests, pay attention to whether ionized water was measured or water that was simply filtered. Values ​​from ionized water are usually better because an electrolytic cell itself provides an additional filtration effect by moving anions into the acid water chamber. This reduces the anion nitrate, for example, which a normal filter can hardly do.

Multi-layer activated carbon filter change water ionizer

According to the Drinking Water Ordinance (TWVO), the filter(s) of every non-backwashable filter system must be replaced every 6 months. In almost all water filters that are integrated into the water ionizers, one of the activated carbon layers is coated with a very thin layer of silver.

This layer prevents accumulation and contamination of the filter, which would result in unpleasant smells. In this respect, the risk of contamination of the integrated filters is unlikely, but cannot be ruled out.

You can see how a water filter of a water ionizer is replaced using the example Nexus X-Blue water ionizer and the AquaVolta® EOS Touch.

Hello Mr. Yasin Akgün,

We will now have our system in operation for 6 months and are very satisfied!

Think now is the time to change some filters. We have very calcareous water, 21 degrees of hardness. Unfortunately, I don't check which ones and at what intervals.
I think I can then order these filters from your webshop.

Enclosed is our order for your information.

Answer from Yasin Akgün: Filter change depending on discretion and stretchable...

Hello Mr W.

Thank you for your email and your questions, which I now have to clarify here because the topic is actually simple, but is still not clear to everyone.

Basically, tap water is NOT deadly toxic and full of contaminants or anything like that. It's quite clean. It is therefore sufficient to only replace the first filter every 1 months, as this does the main filter work.

It is not the 2nd filter, the reverse osmosis membrane, that filters pollutants, but the 1st and that. 3 filters, both activated carbon filters. For more information on the topic of osmosis, please listen to the audio video here on this FAQ page or here: www.aquacentrum.de/trinkwasseraufbereitung-was-du-wissen-solltest-podcast-mit-peakwolf-ch-und-yasin/

That's why the membrane filter can be changed after 2 years at the earliest, even 3 years wouldn't be an issue. The older the membrane, the more minerals will “flow through” it, but from my point of view this is more of a positive thing. After the membrane, it is filtered again through the third filter through activated carbon media, and also externally, with the H2 shuttle pH+, which brings even more advantages:

  1. pH value increase to pH 9 or even up to pH10, in the first 2 weeks after changing the filter
  2. including H2 content so antioxidant, more antioxidant than other flow H2 generators or electric water ionizers
  3. The different ceramics also “energize” or “vitalize” the water, resulting in water that tastes softer.
  4. Some ceramics also protect against germ contamination in the H2 Shuttle pH+ filter

This means you can change the filter Osminion Direct Flow 600 GPD carry out at the following intervals:

  1. Filter, activated carbon pre-filter, change every 6 months
  2. Filter, reverse osmosis membrane, every 24-36 months or later
  3. Filter, activated carbon post-filter with pH neutralization, every 12 months
  4. external filter, H2 Shuttle pH+, every 6 months if you want to continue drinking antioxidant and alkaline water above pH 9.
