A durable and simple water filtration system suitable for town or alternative water supplies. The unit uses and includes the world class Doulton filter able to provide 2,000 litres of clean safe drinking water from all manner of water sources including rain water, bore, creek, and dam.
Each system is uniquely handmade and decorated in Australia by Beechmountain Pottery in Queensland. First made in the early 90's, the filter units proved to be so effective and popular, the owners put their family name on them – 'Durand Water Filters'.
Each unit is made with lead free, non-toxic glazes. The stoneware is fired to 1280 degrees centigrade, making them essentially 'vitrified' to last a lifetime. Stoneware will not deteriorate over time, unlike lower fired ceramics or terracotta. Stoneware does not leach any impurities and will keep your water cool naturally.
This is a simple gravity filtration system and does not require any electricity or plumbing. They are also easy to move and clean.
Durand Water Filter Systems are a healthy, attractive, benchtop, domestic water filter system, ideal for home and the office, that stores cool GREAT tasting drinking water at an affordable price. Producing Clean, Safe Drinking Water for less than 2 cents a litre with NO installation costs.
The 12 Litre "Durand Water Filters" stand approximately 480mm to 500mm high, and 250mm to 270mm wide.
How it works
Simply add water to the filter container, which sits inside the main storage container. Under the force of gravity the water first passes through the micro porous ceramic walls of the filter. The inside of the walls of the Doulton filter are impregnated with silver. The silver acts as a natural biocide to keep the water inside your filter, and also your stored water, pure. Then the water passes through the activated carbon filled core of the filter. From there it drips into the storage container at the bottom.
