Organic water filters
Ontap only use Carbon and Ceramic water filters. We do not use Ion Exchange methods and we do not use Reverse Osmosis systems as they remove the minerals from your drinking water that are essential to your good health. Our filters remove harmful chemicals and pathogenic organisms (bacteria & protozoan cysts) from your UK municipal water supply leaving your water clean, fresh, safe and a pleasure to drink.
The Carbon and Ceramic replacement water filters are removed from the outer housing when it is time to replace them. The outer housings are used again and only the replacement filters are recycled. This helps to minimise the amount of plastic waste in our environment.
Disposal / Recycling
The plastic spigot can be removed from the carbon filters and the old carbon filter can then be put on the Bar-B-Q, buried in the garden or recycled in the bin. The spigot from the ceramic filter can be snapped off and the filter can be broken up and buried in the garden or recycled in the bin.
