How does the MAVEA filtration system work?
The MAVEA filtration technology is an optimal mixture of activated carbon and ion exchange resin beads that work together with the unique cartridge shape to improve water taste and reduce limescale* and other contaminants (e.g. cadmium, copper, mercury, atrazine, simazine, benzene and tetrachloroethylene). *Limescale reduction certified in internal tests, not certified by WQA
How does the filter cartridge work?
The filter works in four easy steps:
- Step 1: Intensive Pre-Filtration: The water flows through a fine mesh filter.
- Step 2: Ion Exchange Filtration: The ion exchange resin reduces lime scale (carbonate hardness), cadmium, copper, and mercury.
- Step 3: Activated Carbon Filtration: The activated carbon significantly reduces substances that affect smell and taste such as chlorine, benzene, tetrachloroethylene, atrazine, and simazine.
- Step 4: Intensive Final Filtration: The special fine mesh filter retains the particle mixture.
How often do I have to change the cartridge?
