1Clean and tasteless water Water - Source of LifeClean and tasteless water
2O Aqua (from Ambrosius - Bishop of Milan in the 4th century) This agreeable beverage instils in our bodies, blasted by hotness, refreshment. It is healthful because it donates life, lovely because it gives happiness.The water compressed between the mountains is not imprisoned, smashed on the cliffs it is not broken, closed into the ground it does not evanish, but flowing from hidden veins assures useful irrigation, avoiding that the earth, lifeless because bare of its vital energies, denies us the yearly harvests.The water is the substance of all the elements and is produced as well by heaven, sky, sea and earth.
3O Aqua Is tap water good water? Normally the water of the public aqueducts is carefully tested every day and does not contain pesticides, heavy metals or other dangerous elements.Nevertheless the transportation through the pipes, pumping stations and tubings of the buildings can create problems of dirt (sand, rust and other impurities) and bacterial contamination. Bacteria develop the best between 25°C and 50°C.To avoid bacterial contamination the water is disinfected.The mostly used product is chlorine.
4O AQVA Is tap water good water? What is a biofilm? Bio film is a group of cells or colonies of cells attachedto a surface.This forms a film of organic andnot organic material and is aperfect milieu for growing bacteria.It also causes corrosion.To avoid bacterial contaminationthe water is disinfected.The mostly used product is chlorine.
7Why often tap water has bad taste and smell? O AquaWhy often tap water has bad taste and smell?The smell and taste of tap water is caused by the presence of chlorine. Besides, the chlororganic substances (caused by chlorination of organic substances in water) may intensify the unpleasant odour.
8Whether chlorine is dangerous? O AquaWhether chlorine is dangerous?According to the sanitary standard, the concentration of chlorine in tap water is not dangerous to the healthy person. However, for the people with asthmatic and allergic diseases the presence of even small concentrations of free chlorine can worsen the state of health. In addition chlorine reacts with organic substances which are present in any tap water, causing formation of chlororganic substances (e.g., chloroform, chlorphenols, dioxins).
9Home water filters manufacturer AQUAPHOR® is the largest home water filter manufacturer in Russia with more than full-time employees including more than 60 chemists and engineers with decades of experience in this branch.AQUAPHOR® manufacturing facilities include state-of-the-art production of fibrous adsorbents, carbon blocks, plastic moulding and filter assembly.The Research Department includes chemical, microbiological, mechanical, automation and design laboratories.The outstanding quality of water filters is verified by more than 30 international patents.
10Filtering system AQUAPHOR® Viking Water purifying system Multipurpose filtering systemThis modern water purifying system is based on sorption method, providing superior filtration of active chlorine, organic impurities, heavy metal ions, rust and unpleasant smell. Advantages include high filtration rate (25 l/min), superior efficiency and excellent quality of water purification.
11"According to experts, a person’s body when taking a 20-minute shower in chlorine water is exposed to the same quantity of chlorine as when drinking 2 litres of not purified tap water."(American Journal of Epidemiology,April 2007)
12The Aquaphor® Viking Water Filter  Quick connector (American style), external threads 3/4" Stainless steel housing of food industry quality. Fastening which ensures tight impermeability of the housing and makes replacement of a filtering cartridge easier. Filtering cartridge, which consists of two coaxially placed carbon blocks. A carbon block with large porosity (20 microns) is made of active carbon and chelate ion-exchange micro fibre. Internal extra dense carbon block (5 microns) for better water purification properties.
13The Aquaphor® Viking Water Filter The filter housingsThe filter housings are manufactured in three sizes. Depending on the used cartridge the system can fulfil different water purifying tasks with various filtration rates and efficiency.Compact design of the smaller models enables them to also be installed in tight conditions. Thanks to the unique wall bracket and quick connector it is easy to replace the cartridge even in difficult to reach places.
14The Aquaphor® Viking Water Filter The filter housingsIn designing and manufacturing of AQUAPHOR® multipurpose filtering system the most up-to-date water purification solutions of AQUAPHOR® water purification solutions have been implemented.Due to its high filtration rate and superior efficiency this system is used not only in city apartments and summer cottages but also in nurseries, schools, cafes and restaurants, in hotels, hospitals and industrial enterprises, in coffee makers and ice makers: in a word everywhere, where there is a need to get clean water quickly and in big quantities.
15Aqualen® patented fibre adsorbents Aqualen® is based on a new generation chelating ion-exchange fibre adsorbent. Thanks to its special design it reacts with heavy metal ions 780 times better than with calcium and magnesium ions. This means that even very hard water does not obstruct of quicksilver, tin, copper and cadmium ions removal.Dynamic recovery method of silver. Unique dynamic recovery method of silver is used in AQUAPHOR® filter mixes. Initially silver is bind in Aqualen® in the most active form, i.e. as ions. This enables the bacteriostatic efficiency of the filter to be increased and at the same time its silver content to be reduced.Filtering efficiency. Ordinary carbon block has several disadvantages. As carbon is largely water-repellent, it creates channel effects and dead spaces. Due to this filter efficiency may fall down to 50%.
16Aqualen® patented fibre adsorbents AQUAPHOR® active carbon blocks contain Aqualen® and thus they are free from mentioned disadvantages. As Aqualen® is very water-retaining, such a carbon block may be viewed as a water conducting ion-exchange matrix containing active carbon granules. As a result water flows through the entire filter.Filtering without pressure losses. Thanks to these fibres AQUAPHOR® filter cartridges are characterised by reduced hydrodynamic resistance and increased filtering speed. Such cartridges have excellent water purifying properties with minimum pressure losses.
17The Aquaphor® Viking Water Filter The filtering system is installed in the location cold and hot water pipes enter into the apartment (1) ensuring that all incoming water is perfectly clean with end filtering rate of 5 microns. If you have independent water heating systems you can install only the filter for the cold-water entrance.If you do not want a separate drinking water filter with a separate tap in your kitchen, in order not to drill a hole in your sink, you can install a special Viking filter (2) in the pipe under the mixer and all water in your kitchen turns into excellent drinkable water (1 micron of finish purification efficiency).
18The Aquaphor® Viking Water Filter The cartridge is made of a carbon block of differential porosity acting by the sorption principle. Water shall be perfectly purified not only from rust, sand and other non-soluble additives and active chlorine but also from phenol, heavy metals and pesticides.The chemists of the quality control laboratory are highly experienced. This laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art analytical devices including an atomic spectrometer, capillary electrophoresis, gas chromatograph, UV spectrometers and filter quality testing systems according to the NFS 42, NSF 53 and EPA microbiological protocols.NSF International is “The Public Health and Safety Company™”, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization, the world leader in standards development, product certification, education, and risk-management for public health and safety.EPA is the Environmental Protection Agency of US Government.
19The Aquaphor® Viking Water Filter All products and their production are certified for purifying drinking tap water by the national State Certification Agency.The water filters have been tested and approved for sale in several EU countries, South Korea, Singapore and other countries.
21The Aquaphor® Viking Water Filter An important question:can Aquaphor® filters releaseadsorbed harmful substances back to filtered water?Aqualen® activated ion-exchange fibres and coconut shell activated carbon are used as the main adsorbents in the Aquaphor® water purifiers.Aqualen® functional surface groups bind heavy metals ions through the formation of chelate complexes. Due to the chelating mechanism, lead, copper, cadmium, mercury and other ions bind practically irreversible.Extremely fine porosity of the Aquaphor® composite cartridges ensures binding of all major impurities.

The hollow fibres are very hydrophilic and have a tremendous outer surface area. The fibres' outer diameter is less than 300 microns.
31OUR BODY NEEDS WATERWater is the nutrient that your body needs the most.Between 60 and 70 percent of adult body weight is water. Child's body is 80 percent water, and five months old embryo's body water content is 94 percent.Water dissolves solids and delivers nutrients (vitamins and minerals) into the body cells and carries wastes from the cells.Water regulates body temperature and is essential for breathing. To function normally human body requires at least 1.5 litres of water per day.Water is naturally low in sodium, has no fat, cholesterol or caffeine and isn't flushed straight through the body like many other beverages.
