BS-Series Kitchen Water Filters Filtration Layers

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).

The result – clean, direct drinking water with long-lasting quality from your very own kitchen tap!

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

Water filter maintenance: How to clean my BS-Series water filter element

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.

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 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!
