How does the BS-series tap water filter work?

There are 3 different types of filter elements in BS-series water filters:

swiss-tech

Swiss-Tech Filter Element

  • Remove harmful bacteria sediment, chlorine, organic chemicals and heavy metals.
  • With Silver Ion Disinfection.
  • Made in Switzerland.
multi-tech

Multi-Tech Filter Element

  • Remove harmful bacteria sediment, chlorine, chloramine, organic chemicals and heavy metals.
  • With Silver Ion Disinfection.
  • Made in England.
ph-tech

pH-Tech Filter Element

  • Remove harmful bacteria sediment, chlorine, chloramine, organic chemicals and heavy metals. Enhance water pH level.
  • With Silver Ion Disinfection.
  • Made in England.

All BS-series water filters come with Swiss-Tech Filter Element inside. After the end of the lifespan of the filter element (12 months), you can opt to change to Multi-Tech or pH-Tech.

There are two layers of filtration on BS-series tap water filter elements.

The first layer of filtration is a cleanable ceramic filter which removes particles as small as 0.2 micron and harmful organisms. It also has germicidal silver ion which acts as a disinfectant that inhibits the growth of bacteria within the filter matrix.

The second layer of filtration is the inner activated carbon filter which removes foul taste and odour, chlorine, harmful organism, heavy metals, and chloramine (multi-tech and pH-tech).

pH-tech filter elements have additional mineral stones to increase water alkalinity and enhance water with beneficial minerals (Calcium and Magnesium).

With the thorough filtration through the filter elements, boiling of water is no longer required before consumption. Hence it is safe to consume filtered water directly from the tap connected to BS-series water filters.

How to choose the best water filter for my home or office

Bacfree BS series water filters are your best choice if you are looking for a hassle-free and reliable water filter for your kitchen sink and tap. Just install a BS water filter and you can get direct drinking water from your tap anytime!

If you’re looking for a water filter that doesn’t take up too much space to keep your kitchen tidy and neat, a BS-3 will work perfectly for you.

Mounted on the sink-top, the BS-3 is small and slim in design, with stainless steel finishing, making it go well with the whole set of your kitchen sink without sticking out like a sore thumb.

After installation, just get direct drinking water from the BS-3 water filter anytime, without having to worry about boiling water for clean drinking water anymore.

If you do not wish to have your water filter permanently fixed or mounted in your sink top, a BS-3A water filter gives you the flexibility to move it around in case you want to tidy up or change the arrangement of the kitchen sink.

The BS3A can stand on its own and requires no installation. Just connect it into your current kitchen tap, and get filtered direct drinking water easily.

Here’s a short video clip on how you can just set BS3A up on your own, without requiring any technical installation!

Are you a fan of a clean, tidy kitchen sink? The BS-8 under sink water filter is mounted under the sink, inside of your kitchen cabinet. So it remains out of sight while maintaining its function of providing, clean, direct drinking water.

This way, you can get filtered water from your tap, without the water filter actually in sight on your kitchen sink!

However, If you prefer a smart water dispenser that can dispense hot water in different temperatures and volumes,
you can check out the Watero Smart Water Dispenser, a standalone water dispenser that requires no installation – just refill water and drink!

Watero has a compact design, and is suitable for small homes, small offices, and small families!

Or, if you prefer to have filtered water for the taps in your entire house, you could opt for an Outdoor Water Filter.

Developed primarily for household and light industrial applications to address water impurity problems at the point-of-entry of municipal treated water supply, the ER-series Outdoor Water Filters are designed to deliver clean, clear water to every water outlet in the premises.

If you are looking for premium selections of water filters for your optimal health, you might want to check out water filters with an advanced ionized system, capable of supplying you with water at different pH levels for different health purposes.

The BA-series HealthSpring Water Filters provide an all-in-one solution with filtration, hot water supply, pH level adjustment, and reverse cleaning design.

Water filter maintenance: How to clean and change my water filter

Cleaning and maintaining a BS-series water filter is easy and straightforward.

To keep the filtered water clean and healthy, clean the filter element once a week. How to clean it? It’s a pretty simple process:

Step 1
Simply unscrew/turn the cap of the filter (doesn’t require any tools). This will allow you to remove the filter by simply unscrewing/turning it.


This is how your filter element will look after one week of usage.

Step 2

When you receive your new BS-series water filter, you will also get a special sponge provided for washing the surface of the filter element. Use the sponge to clean the filter element with water.

Step 3

After the element is clean, replace it into the water filter by screwing/turning it back into the water filter cap and housing. Your filter element is now clean and ready to be used.

After every 1 year, or 5,000 litres of usage, the filter element needs to be replaced. Simply buy a new filter element from Bacfree and replace the old filter and you’re good to go!

We have also prepared a video below to help guide you better in your filter cleaning and maintenance process!
