XStream 7 Stage Reverse Osmosis Water Filter System with Alkalizer Magnetic and Far-infrared Energizer – Includes 12L tank and tap
Stage 1: Poly Spun Sediment Cartridge
These economical sediment cartridges are constructed from polypropylene which is spun and melted simultaneously. This technique means there is no center core to restrict filter performance.
These sediment filters are compatible with most liquids and are highly effective for sediment, rust, sand, silt, and algae removal and have no chemical residuals.
They are extremely high performing, and carry a heavy load of sediment before requiring replacement. We choose to use these sediment filters over all other types due to the high performance, high flow rate, high load capacity, and there inability to grow bacterial slime.
Can be replaced every 6 months.
Stage 2: Carbon Block Filter Cartridge
Many sellers of RO systems offer a sediment filter in this position. This is a pure waste of money.
These systems are primarily used on town water so after the sediment pre-filter, the most important filter should always be a Carbon Filter to protect the life of the membrane.
The carbon block cartridge will remove any larger components but more importantly, will stop chemicals from reaching the membrane. This should then prolong your membrane life (the membrane is your most expensive and crucial component) for a life of 3-5 years.
Can be replaced every 6 months.
Stage 3: RO Membrane
The RO membrane is the “engine room” of your R/O. All the crucial work is done here, so all the filters before the membrane are primarily there to protect the membrane.
This membrane is a 0.02 micron rating. It is classed by the manufacturer to be a U.S 50 gallon per day membrane (190 Ltrs). However, these figures are for optimum working pressure/conditions and will rarely apply in the domestic Aussie kitchens.
We predict the production of water to be more like 60-90 Ltrs/day. Although this is restricted considerably from the manufactures specs, it’s a more realistic guide based on our experience and offers more than enough water for a 5 person home for cooking and drinking.
The reduction rates for the membrane are as follows:
· Inorganic Organic Rejection Aluminum 98%
· Adrazin Over 98%
· Arsenic 98%
· Aldrin Over 98%
· Benzene Over 98%
· Barium 95%
· Chlorine Over 98%
· Cadmium 95%
· Chloroform Over 98%
· Calcium 98%
· DOT Over 98%
· Chloride 95%
· Dichlormethane Over 98%
· Chromium VI 98%
· Endrin Over 98%
· Copper 98%
· Fluoranthene Over 98%
· Fluoride 95%
· Herbicides Over 98%
· Iron 98%
· Lindane Over 98%

· Methoxychlor Over 98%
· Magnesium 98%
· PCB Over 98%

· Potassium 95%
· Tannic Acids Over 98%
· Selenium IV 95%
· Toxaphene Over 98%

· Trihalomethanes Over 98%
· Strontium 98%
· V.O.C.’s Over 98%
· Sulphate 98%
· Total Dissolved Solids 95%
· Zinc 98%
After the water passes through the membrane it travels to the 12Ltr holding tank. This is where it will stay until you draw water from your filtration faucet on your kitchen sink. When you turn on your filtration faucets that is when the water will move out of the holding tank and towards the final 4 stages of filtration.
The Membrane can be replaced every 3/5 years.
Stage 4: Xstream Alkalizing Filter
This is the ultimate in pH adjustment, it’s the only alkalizer cartridge in the world that can raise and retain a constant 8.5 pH over 12 months and we believe well beyond this time, however our testing period only covers a 12 month period to date.
This a special grade of Magnesium which is very sacrificial so it lends itself to a very quick rise in pH making it suitable to post RO work. Like all sacrificial alkalizer cartridges this one will leech a small amount of magnesium into the final drinking water. The rate of magnesium introduced will vary from each situation but testing has shown on average an increase of approx. 20-45 ppm.
This cartridge needs to be pre-flushed to clear any fine particles so we suggest a wash time directly off the mains pressure or approx. 3-5 minutes prior to use.
Any systems containing these cartridges have already been pre-washed but replacements are sold dry and require pre-rinsing.
Even after rinsing it’s likely the TDS may be as high as 70 – 100 ppm depending on the rinse times and methods but this will quickly decrease to the average output.
It’s essential that the Xstream carbon cartridge be use after the Xstream Alkaline cartridge for maximum taste reduction. So you should order both cartridges at the same time.
The life of the cartridge will be dictated by the pH result. If you see the pH of your final water dropping below a point you are satisfied with, then it’s time to replace the Alk Cartridge, we feel this will be between 12 and 24 months. At this point the filtering has been completed and it is now about bringing the water back to a healthy condition for drinking.
Warning – Disclaimer:
This information should be read prior to purchasing this system. Returns will NOT be accepted for reasons of adverse reactions. It should be noted that although rare and unlikely, some people may have an adverse reaction when switching directly to high alkaline water. Symptoms may vary from feeling light headed, dizzy spells, and even muscular discomfort. If you have a current illness we suggest you consult your medical professional and seek medical advice before consuming high alkaline water.
Stage 5: Life Energy Ceramic (Far Infra-Red Treatment)
This stage is truly delving into the health of the water, infra-red beads are simply miraculous given that they don’t even come into contact with the water.
In keeping with Ultra-Violet Light, this filter has the ability to assist in the sanitizing of the water with Infar red emitting frequency balls through glass tubes.
Just a few of the effects of the Stage 5 Infra-Red Rays on the body are:
· Activates the water molecules
· Improves oxygen levels in the body
· Warms and eliminates fats/ chemicals and toxins from the blood
· Accelerates blood flow
· Reduces acid levels in the body
· Improves Nervous system functionality
· Promotes the elimination of other wastes from our cells therefore reducing acidic levels
· Improved nervous system functionality
· Promotes the strengthening of the immune system
· Far Infra-Red Rays Ionize
· Activate water molecules in our cells and blood therefore improve our blood circulation and overall health.
This filter is great in front of filter systems to prevent bacteria and algae slime from prematurely blocking an expensive filter, particularly on tank water or any water that is not treated or sanitized. Water makes up 70% of mass of the human body. FIR is able to activate, revitalize, reactivate, develop and strengthen various organs in our bodies when it is absorbed. In the various organs of human body, the circulatory system plays an important role, especially in micro-circulatory system. When there are problems with micro-circulatory system, various ailments will occur.
FIR vibrating at a frequency similar to that of the human body, is able to penetrate the body, activates cells and reactivates as well as strengthens the micro-circulatory systems. It regulates the blood flow and blood in blood vessels, which have been blocked due to blood clots and at the same time reactivate the vital energy in the body. FIR also acts to prevent bacteria growth, relieve pain and speed the recovery process.
This can be replaced every 2 years.
Stage 6: Xstream Carbon
Extremely high grade coconut carbon cartridge for maximum extraction of taste or odor issues.
This can be replaced every 12 months.
Stage 7: Magnetic Water Energizer (Never needs replacing)
Once again we have been encouraged to build and supply negative magnetic water treatment for human consumption and the evidence has been overwhelmingly positive. Magnetic energy is widely used in water treatment and we helped pioneer this technology in Australia.
This inevitably led us to develop and supply a technology called negative defusing technology, meaning that when put in reverse it activates negative energy into drinking water.
So many customers have benefited from this technology, reducing the symptoms of kidney stone and calcification of the arteries along with so many other advantages in drinking negatively charged water. It makes sense to add the Fluid Reactor magnetic system as the final stage of our 7 stage RO system.Free Delivery Australia Wide
