The 5 stage filter fits within the Santevia Gravity System, executing steps 2 to 6 of the 8-stage Gravity filtration process. Each stage was selected with the single intention of giving you the finest, cleanest, greatest-tasting mineralized alkaline water possible.
The 5 Filtration Steps
Filter 1 (Stage 2): Granular Activated Coconut Carbon
This filter utilizes porous coconut carbon charcoal for an astounding 65 acres of purifying surface area. It filters chlorine, herbicides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, industrial chemicals, trihalomethanes (THMs), heavy metals, organic chemicals, odour, taste, colour and particulates. This stage also contains a KDF filter medium that inhibits the growth of bacteria in the filter and neutralizes heavy metals.
Filter 2 (Stage 3): Silica Sand
This stage inhibits bacteria and neutralizes heavy metals such as lead, nickel, cadmium and mercury through an ion exchange process. It filters detergents, ammonium, agricultural chemicals as well as some types of radioactive ions and toxins.
Filter 3 (Stage 4): Mineral Stone Infusion
In this stage, porous Maifan mineral stones infuse ionized minerals into the water, promoting oxygenation and alkalization.
Filter 4 (Stage 5): pH Mineral Balls
Mineral ions encased in diatomaceous earth add calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals to fortify the water and increase the pH.
Filter 5 (Stage 6): Energy Balls
Energy Balls, constructed by mixing earth and mineral oxides before comprising and firing them, assist with pH balancing and emit beneficial infrared energy into the water.
Filter life: 6 months

We've been using Santevia products at our home for over 6 years now and have loved the ease of use and effectiveness. Our water tastes and smells better than tap with little effort and little expense.
