The AlkaViva Biostone-Plus Water Filter is manufactured 100% in the US with NSF certified components. In using the amazing natural properties of “vortex hydraulics”, this ensures optimal performance and longevity of your filter. The recent improvements to the BioStone Plus filter utilize some of the newest technologies in the water industry for upgraded contaminant removal and improved flow rate.
The Biostone-Plus Water Filters have increased contact time and reduced the resistance of granulated filter beds without sacrificing our removal capabilities. The BioStone Plus is an excellent choice to prevent chlorine and chloramines, VOC’s, improve taste and odor, and reduce heavy metals such as mercury, lead, nickel and iron. In addition to the using improved and cutting edge medias, AlkaViva has added another element to their filters to prevent the damaging effects of hard water scale and improve taste and odor.
The new and improved Jupiter Biostone Plus filter is the best filter to use if you have hard source water. The Vortex Hydraulics in the Biostone Plus filter body design reduces channeling and ensures the optimal performance and longevity of the filter. The calcium layer consists of Japanese premium grade, and is added to assist in the thorough filtration of chlorine and other chemicals. It also naturally sweetens the water and helps change volatile fluorine molecules into a benign compound (calcium fluoride).
The addition of bioceramic, semi-prescious Tourmaline reduces surface tension in the water and aids in the ionization process. Tourmaline crystal is known to be a beautiful, semi-precious gem. Now as a mineral it also became a focus of scientific research. One of the reasons is that infrared Tourmaline is the only mineral on earth to show permanent electricity. It was found by researches in Japan that even broken into pieces, Tourmaline crystals always maintained a positive and negative electrodes. The stone is known to be used for improving circulation, relieving stress and its anti-bacterial qualities. Inside your filter it transforms water into a mild alkaline water. Other qualities of Tourmaline crystal are used in your Biostone filter to reducing water cluster size and minimizing odor. The tourmaline in this patented, state-of-the-art filter really makes a difference to the ability of the water to carry an ionized charge naturally. As the water passes over the tourmaline crystals the ORP is naturally decreased and the water made more bio-available. What this means is if water passes through your Jupiter - even with the power turned off - the water will come out a little ionized!
