The AlkaViva Biostone-Plus Water Filter is manufactured 100% in the US with NSF certified components. The BioStone Plus starts with a 3-micron rated compressed carbon block, then the "Plus" technology is added by impregnating it with specialty media to increase contaminant reduction. It removes more Chloramine, heavy metals and other tough contaminants than the BioStone regular [original] filter. Containing Scale Guard protection, the AlkaViva Biostone-Plus Filter will out perform any GAC filter – regardless of micron rating. (Rated for 1000 gals.)
Recent improvements to the BioStone Plus filter utilize some of the newest technologies in the water industry for upgraded contaminant removal and improved flow-rate. In using the amazing natural properties of “vortex hydraulics”, the design of the Biostone Plus housing ensures optimal performance of your filter. The vortex reduces "channeling" and ensures the best longevity and filter-life. Biostone-Plus water filters have increased contact time and reduced the resistance of granulated filter beds without sacrificing our removal capabilities.
The BioStone Plus is an excellent choice to eliminate chlorine and chloramines, VOC’s, heavy metals and improve taste and odor. In addition to using the cutting edge filter medias, AlkaViva has added another element, scale guard crystals, to their filters to prevent the damaging effects of hard water scale and improve taste and odor. Scale Guard is all-natural and healthy, and is added to help protect your ionizer from hard water damage.
The new and improved Jupiter Biostone Plus filter is the best filter to use if you have hard source water. The calcium layer consists of Japanese premium grade, and is added to assist in the thorough filtration of chlorine and other chemicals. It also naturally sweetens the water and helps change volatile fluorine molecules into a benign compound (calcium fluoride).
The addition of bioceramic, semi-prescious Tourmaline reduces surface tension in the water and aids in the ionization process. Tourmaline crystal is known to be a beautiful, semi-precious gem. Now as a mineral it also became a focus of scientific research. One of the reasons is that infrared Tourmaline is the only mineral on earth to show permanent electricity. It was found by researches in Japan that even broken into pieces, Tourmaline crystals always maintained a positive and negative electrodes. The stone is known to be used for improving circulation, relieving stress and its anti-bacterial qualities. Inside your filter it transforms water into a mild alkaline water. Other qualities of Tourmaline crystal are used in your Biostone filter to reducing water cluster size and minimizing odor. The tourmaline in this patented, state-of-the-art filter really makes a difference to the ability of the water to carry an ionized charge naturally. As the water passes over the tourmaline crystals the ORP is naturally decreased and the water made more bio-available. What this means is if water passes through your Jupiter - even with the power turned off - the water will come out a little ionized!
Change filters at least yearly.
