Product Description - AlkaViva Replacement Jupiter Biostone Plus 0.10 Micron Filter for City Water
.1M Biostone Plus and .01M Ultra-Biostone Filters
* Used exclusively in the latest Jupiter Water Ionizers
* New Biostone Plus is manufactured in the USA
using NSF approved ingredients
All Jupiter ionizer cells are manufactured in Jupiter's state-of-the-art factory in Japan. Their research department has existed since the early 1980s and employs about 20 Engineers with Doctorates ensuring that Jupiter ionizers continues to out-perform and out-last the competition. This quality control also extends to the new Biostone filters.
Jupiter Biostone Filter Test Results
- No heavy metals etc. released from filter
(see the PDF Filter Report from Seoul Department of Health).
- The activated carbon in the filter is NSF certified.
- The calcium in the filter comes from Japan and is certified by the Japanese Government.
- The Ceramic Biostone in the filter is produced in Korea and comes with Korean FDA certification.
- All ingredients are put into the filter housing where sealing is achieved by using high motion heat friction thereby avoiding the need for any harmful chemicals.
A) The Biostone Plus .1 Micron (.1M) granulated, silver-impregnated carbon filter
As used in the Microlite, Venus, Melody, Orion, Aquarius and Delphi models.
The older Jupiter filter helped remove from the incoming water chlorine, bad taste, fluoride, Guardia, cryptosporidium, all other common water micro-organisms and other contaminants. What remained was good tasting, clean healthy water with the essential alkalizing minerals remaining.
Compare this to Reverse Osmosis, Distilled Water and most Bottled Water where you get clean water that is often highly acidic with all the essential minerals removed!
To give you an idea of how fine these filters are - there are over 25,000 microns in one inch. There are 250,000 .1M in one inch.
Silver is also impregnated into the carbon to make sure that bacteria do not grow there. Because it is embedded, or impregnated, into the carbon, the silver does not leach into the water. Tests done by the Seoul Department of Health show that no silver is released from these filters.
The New Biostone Plus Filter is a similar size as the standard filter above but improved to also include layers of calcium with magnesium plus tourmaline plus a layer that targets chloriamine (unique to Jupiter filters). Only the Biostone Plus filters in Jupiter ionizers include ingredients to help remove chloramine and heavy metals. The calcium is Japanese premium grade. It not only helps to slightly remineralize the water but also naturally sweetens the water and changes volatile fluorine molecules into a benign compound (calcium fluoride).
The tourmaline (read More Here) in this patented, state-of-the-art filter really makes a difference to the ability of the water to carry an ionized charge naturally. As the water passes over the tourmaline crystals the ORP is naturally decreased and the water made more bio-available. What this means is if water passes through your Jupiter - even with the power turned off - the water will come out more ionized.
B) Biostone Ultra .01 Micron granulated silver-impregnated carbon filter
Optional upgrade filter available for the Microlite, Venus, Melody, Orion, Aquarius and Delphi models.
Also called a hollow membrane filter this filter is the same size filter that is used in kidney dialysis. It is the finest (smallest micron) domestic filter available and will remove virtually everything except for the essential alkalizing minerals.
Typically, if on city water we recommend the regular Biostone filter but for well water and where there is hyper-allergy issues we recommend the .01M Biostone filter.
The picture above shows a single .01M filter magnified 40 times. Hundreds of these are in a Biostone Ultra Filter.
How do I know when my Jupiter filter needs to be replaced?
All the latest Jupiter Science ionizers have a digital readout that shows how long before you need to change your filter. A filter typically lasts a family of four between 8 to 9 months and gives a good 1000 gallons of water. We recommend changing the filter at least once every 12 months to ensure quality performance.
How often you change your filter will depend on the quality of your water and the amount of water you are using each day on average. If you smell or taste chlorine in your water after it passes through your Ionizer you should change your filter. In some city water supplies the amount of chlorine etc. now used is at higher levels than before due to increases in contaminants. Also if you notice that the flow rate through your filter has decreased to a slow rate then it is probably because it is full of particles and now needs replacement.
