The Puretec nitrate removal water filter system takes the worry out of your water by reducing the nitrate levels to safe levels for human consumption. It utilises nitrate-selective ion-exchange resin to purify the water & automatically regenerates the resin with salt in the backwash process, providing exceptionally long resin life and minimal maintenance experience. (Salt not included.)
Nitrate is one of the most common groundwater contaminants in rural areas, originating primarily from fertilisers and septic systems. Nitrate is particularly harmful to babies & infants less than 3-6 months because excess levels can cause methemoglobinemia or ‘blue baby’ disease. The affected blood carries less oxygen than it should, turning the body blue and depriving it of oxygen. There are also studies linking nitrate in drinking water with cancer, where nitrate levels are at or above 100-200 mg/l.
Effective nitrate reduction is dependant on various factors indicating flow-rate and contact time.
The nitrate removal water filter cartridges can be purchased separately.
