How does it work?
The Diamond Dew active carbon water purifier is a high quality appliance designed for final purification of municipal water. The working part is a column of granular activated carbon, a high-grade washed charcoal made from e.g. coconut shells or mineral coal. Active carbon attracts and holds impurities in tap water that cause bad taste and could be harmful to health over the long term. This marvellous property of activated carbon has been utilised for ages to purify water to high drinking and taste standards.
Basic operation:Water from the tap is purified as it flows through the carbon column
Installation:The Diamond Dew water purifier is a counter top model that can be moved around and placed wherever convenient. Simply click it onto any available cold water tap near a basin. The appropriate male connector size for the tap can be supplied by your nearest hardware store. The ideal solution may be to install a special tap for the purifier in your kitchen sink.
MaintenanceNo maintenance is required. The purifier lasts about two to four years in an average household, after which it should be replaced.
The following could be present in drinking water, which may be harmful if allowable
levels are exceeded. These substances can be effectively removed by active carbon:
Odours and bad taste (caused by various chemicals in the water)
Pesticides, organic compounds such as benzene and carbon tetrachloride (leaking from agriculture and industry into rivers and groundwater)
Bacterial or colloidal iron or tannins (when combined with chlorination)
Radon, lead, copper, some heavy metals (leaking from industry to rivers and groundwater)
Chlorine, chloramides (additives to municipal water to control microbes)
Trihalomethanes (disinfection by-products from chlorination of municipal water)
Cryptosporidium and giardia (caused by human or animal wastes)
