MORE Than a Water Filter: While water filtration is important to yield clean, contaminant reduced water - it is merely one element of organically complete water. Unlike many high-tech water filters, Santevia Gravity Water Systems clean your water without using chemicals, artificial filter media, water pressure, or electricity. Santevia uses all-natural and effective compounds such as earthenware ceramic, coconut carbon charcoal, volcanic Zeolite, and silica sand. Once sparkling clean the real magic of transforming your water begins.

ENERGISES: Water is re-energised with bio-ceramic, which like the sun, emits the invisible yet beneficial far-infrared light spectrum. Magnets in the dispenser spout simulate the magnetism of the Earth's core, thought to re-structure water for better bio-availability. ALKALINISES: Bitter and acidic tap-water is transformed into terrific tasting and healthful alkaline water through contact with natural silica sand and mineral dense Maifan stone. Water pH is increased by as much as 100%! RE-MINERALISES: Mineral dense Maifan stones infused with highly beneficial and absorbable calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and other trace minerals are put back into the water. TASTES GREAT: Pure and naturally re-mineralised, alkaline and revitalized Santevia pure water is brilliant in clarity, moutain spring fresh with a sweet and smooth flavor unique to Pure EARTH Water. HYDRATES: Alkaline and mineralised water refreshes and revitalises your body. Bio-ceramic energy balls and aligned magnets serve to re-structure, and cluster water molecules for optimal absorption and hydration.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the dimensions of the Santevia Water System? 12.25" x 12.25" x 23.5" H. 31cm x 31cm x 60cm H

How much water does the unit hold when full? The SanteviaTM Water System holds 10 liters of water in the lower tank. The upper tank is 5 liters in size, so by processing two upper tanks, you will have 10 liters of clean mineralized drinking water. Please note: If you fill the upper tank when the lower tank is mostly full it will overflow, leaking where the white connector joins the upper and lower tank together.

Is Santevia BPA FREE? What plastic is used in the Santevia? Polypropylene (PP#5) is used in the Santevia tanks. It does not contain any Bisphenol A (BPA). PP#5 is an inert plastic that does not leach any carcinogens or endocrine disruptors. Safest Plastics for You and the Environment

*Polypropylene (PP) (#5)... has not been shown to leach any carcinogens or endocrine disruptors.

What do the mineral stones do? The mineral stones contain calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium, zinc and other trace minerals. The stones continuously release ionised minerals for up to 5 years. The highly porous mineral stones aid in the oxygenation of water and in the adjustment of the water to mild alkaline. The stones gradually deplete in size - when you notice the stones getting smaller it's time to replace them.

How does the SanteviaTM "gravity" system differ from reverse osmosis?  A reverse osmosis (RO) water system requires water pressure to force water through a membrane to purify it. It produces extremely clean water that is stripped of everything, including all beneficial minerals. We have seen some studies that indicate that health issues may arise from long term drinking of regular RO water, as is also the case with distilled water. The World Health Organization has concluded that mineralization is generally desirable in drinking water. The SanteviaTM Gravity Water System uses a more natural process that purifies and re-mineralizes the water.

Are chlorine, chloramines, and chlorine byproducts removed by the Santevia? Our long contact filtration process and our activated carbon layer removes virtually all chlorine, chloramines, and chlorine by-products. Independent laboratory testing verifies a minimum of 99.99% chlorine removal; the requirement under NSF/ANSI Standard Number 42 is only 75%. We anticipate that our ongoing testing program, developed to meet or surpass the NSF/ANSI standards using independent water testing laboratories, will provide more precise and higher percentages for chlorine removal.

Will the Santevia system remove pharmaceuticals? Since the Santevia® Gravity Water System contains both granulated and powdered carbon in the central five stage filter it should be effective in removing most pharmaceuticals.

Due to the vast and ever increasing number of pharmaceuticals we have not tested specifically for their removal.

In an article in Environmental Science & Technology, the author states: "GAC (granulated activated carbon) is effective because carbon can bind a broad category of compounds, and many pharmaceuticals have components like benzene rings or amine groups that enhance their ability to be taken up by activated carbon. The powdered form of activated carbon can be even more effective, removing virtually every possible pharmaceutical and personal care product."

What heavy metals, chemicals, bacteria, etc. will the Santevia® System remove? We do not have a breakdown of water before and after using the Santevia® gravity water system; it would be impossible for us to know the composition of input water across North America as each treatment system will be different. What we can tell you is that the ceramic pre-filter has a pore size of .3 of a micron (a micron is one thousandth of a millimeter; by comparison a grain of salt is approximately 60 microns).

This tiny pore size allows highly effective filtration; various tests of similar ceramic filters show a 100% blockage of particles of 0.9 of a micron, and a 99.997% blockage of particles sized 0.5 to 0.8 of a micron. The water then flows slowly through the activated carbon layer, the silica sand layer and the zeolite layer. The system is highly effective in removing particles and parasites suspended in the water, but will not effectively filter out materials dissolved in the water (for example, fluoride and arsenic).

The water then passes through mineral sand, bio-ceramic balls, and mineral stones which sit in the bottom of the tank. These materials all assist in re-mineralisation of the water and in the process alter the pH of the water to make it more alkaline.

The system is designed to take potable biologically safe water and to further purify and enhance the taste and pH. The system is being very well received by health food (wellness) retailers, alternative medicine practitioners (hundreds have been purchased by Naturopathic doctors across North America) and health conscious consumers.

What would the concentration of minerals (ppm) be in 1 litre of water? Testing done at Cantest Laboratories in Burnaby, Canada indicates the following beneficial mineral concentrations in the Santevia® gravity water system. Our understanding of beneficial minerals in drinking water comes from a variety of sources, including the World Health Organization's Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality.

Calcium (Ca) 5.91 mg/L Copper (Cu) 0.009 mg/L Iron (Fe) 0.06 mg/L Magnesium (Mg) 0.65 mg/L Manganese (Mn) 0.007 mg/L Potassium (K) 0.2 mg/L Sodium (Na) 5.47 mg/L Zinc (Zn) 0.016 mg/L

These results will vary of course with the mineral content of the source water.

How long will the filters last? We rate the 5-stage filter for 1,500 litres or six months, whichever comes first. This is based on average consumption of 2 litres per day per person and a household in which 4 persons are using the Santevia system.We recommend changing the 5-stage every six months regardless of the volume of water flowed through in order to insure that bacteria does not accumulate in the filter beyond its capacity to absorb.

The ceramic pre-filter lasts up to 12 months depending on sediment levels in your source water. The ceramic pre-filter is to be cleaned once a week, but may need to be cleaned more often if sediment levels are high.

The mineral stones are replaced every 2 - 5 years.

How often does the ceramic pre-filter need to be cleaned? Both sides of the ceramic pre-filter should be cleaned weekly or whenever it appears dirty, because without proper cleaning the flow-through may slow significantly. The bottom of the double-sided ceramic pre-filter usually attracts the most contamination, so the filter will have to be removed to clean both sides. The coloured "slime" that appears on the ceramic pre-filter is water contaminants that your body no longer has to process.

We recommend that you clean the double-sided ceramic pre-filter under cool, running water with a scrub sponge (yellow sponge on one side and green scrubbing pad on the other). Use the greeen side to clean the filter. Please do not use soap or a scouring pad with soap in it as this will just re-clog the pores. After the pre-filter has soaked for an hour (if you've been regularly using your Santevia, it will have been well soaked), use the scrubbing pad to give a vigorous scrub to both sides of the pre-filter to unclog the pores.

Holiday Storage: going on holidays for more than 1 week  Drain your Santevia Water System (give the water to your plants - they will love it!) and disassemble it. Clean the ceramic pre-filter following the weekly maintenance instructions and let it air dry. Allow your mineral stones to air dry as well. Place your 5 stage ultrasonic filter in a plastic bag clean glass container in the refrigerator. Complete your scheduled maintenance when you return from holidays.

Detailed Maintenance Instructions

  • Full System Cleaning: Use a soft sponge and a natural cleaning solution (eg. Vinegar and water or 3% hydrogen peroxide) to wipe out both the upper and lower buckets as well as the tap.
  • Ceramic Pre-filter: Soak for one hour in tap water and scrub both sides vigorously with the green side of a scotch brite sponge. Weekly scrub: scrub both sides vigorously with the green side of a Scotch Brite sponge.
  • 5-stage Filter: Pour tap water through the 5-stage filter until water coming out the bottom is clear.
  • Mineral Stones: Boil mineral stones for 3-5 minutes and let sit until dry. Place back in system. **If mineral stones are contained in a white basket DO NOT BOIL BASKET. Remove mineral stones from basket and boil the rocks separately

Why does it take so long for the water to flow to the lower tank? Slow is good! The Santevia® Water System is based on long contact filtration. Gravity, rather than water pressure, maximises filtration time and allows water to move naturally through the multiple levels of filtering and re-mineralisation elements. It is designed to produce up to 20 litres of water per day, which, based on optimal water consumption, should be adequate for a family of five for drinking and cooking.

Initially it may take as long as five hours for the upper tank to flow into the lower tank (5 litres). However after a few tanks of water have flowed through, and the system is fully wetted, the time required should end up around 4 hours. You can insure maximum flow through by soaking the ceramic pre-filter for one hour prior to assembly (see assembly video) and by cleaning the ceramic pre-filter regularly (see maintenance video). Because the water flow slows as the upper tank empties, topping up the upper tank also helps. Fill the tank at night before you go to bed and just before you leave for work! It's worth the wait. As our slogan says, "Healthy Humans - One drop at a time"

When it comes to packaging, we always do our upmost best to recycle whatever we can, including waste cardboard and loose-fill from our suppliers.

We now only ever purchase loose-fill packing chips that are made mostly from corn starch, a 100% biodegradable material that can be used for composting, or simply thrown into waste bins without having any adverse effect on the environment. In addition to being fully biodegradable and unharmful, the production of corn starch loose-fill requires very low energy consumption and doesn’t need any chemical agents, only water.

All our packaging solutions are designed to keep your chosen products as safe as possible during the delivery process. We care about the condition in which your order arrives to you, which is why we strive to provide the best possible packaging we can.

Really pleased with this product. (Posted on 2/25/2019)
This filter is absolutely amazing! Review by Alex Hughes
Rating
I was looking for a filter system which both filters out the bad stuff (fluoride, chlorine, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals etc) but also adds in the good stuff (minerals etc) - this does both! I love that it packs up so small - I move around a lot but decided that there was no longer space to compromise on my water quality but pleased that it fits in a relatively small box to travel with. I will personally be adding additional crystals to the base water area for water structuring (elite shungite to name one). Initially, it filters pretty slowly, however, now it is really speedy (after 2 weeks) and I always keep it topped up. The taste initially is a bit chalky but after you've filtered a few loads of water through the taste is lovely and it doesn't have the chloriney smell of regular tap water. I am drinking much more of this water throughout the day, I feel like my body is really asking for more sparkly clean water and am already starting to see health benefits.
