Which replacement filters and at what intervals should the filters of the Osminion Direct Flow 500 GPD reverse osmosis system be replaced? 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. […]
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 relates generally to filters and water ionizers. So: You are unlikely to find water filter certificates because no laboratory issues such a thing. What you find […]

It would be very nice if you could help me with this. Question 1 – How many minerals and […]

Brigitte W.: Which calcium do you recommend for the calcium shaft of my water ionizer?
Ute S: Is it better to have a Biostone bioceramic filter or is an activated carbon filter sufficient?
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 results in unpleasant odors [...]
Calcium sulfite in water filters – is it a concern? Good day Mr. Akgün, good day 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 […]

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 […]
Wolfgang Q.: You used to recommend devices without a pre-filter if there were no objections to the tap water. 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?
