PP FILTERS ( Polypropylene Filter Cartridge)
(Life span: 4 – 6 months)

This sediment filter eliminates small invisible molecular size particles suspended in water. This includes particles containing sand, dirt, rust, colloidal matter, bacteria, and algae found suspended in your source water. The main purpose of this filter is to block particles and bacteria from entering the system and prevent clogging and/or contamination which can reduce the lifespan of the filters which follow in the system. This type of filter is used in locations where the source water is dirty or household water tank is dirty.
The life of this filter will depend on:

  • The Quality of your tap water.
  • The Reservoir supplying your area in Mauritius.
  • The Season. During drought and cyclones the quality of your tap water is greatly affected.
  • Whether a pre-filter is fitted to your unit.

    GAC FILTERS (Granular Activated Carbon GAC filter)
    (Life span: 8 – 12 months)

    Removes chlorine, pesticides including pesticide byproducts such as atrazine, industrial solvents (halogenated hydrocarbons), volatile organic compounds (VOC) and chlorinated hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), radon, benzene, arsenic, mercury, lead, chromium, heavy metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), taste and odor forming compounds such as MIB and geosmin, algal toxins, endocrine disrupting compounds (EDC removal) and other micro-pollutants, pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCP removal), trihalomethane (THM) compounds like chloroform and other disinfection byproducts (DBP removal

    CTO FILTERS (Block Carbon Water Filter Cartridge)
    (Life span: 8 – 12 months)

    This filter simultaneously removes chlorine and organic chemicals that contribute to taste and odor while providing the particulate filtration and dirt-holding capacity of an efficient nominal sediment filter. These filters are optimized for applications where they perform the role of both a sediment and activated carbon filter. It also removes, pesticides including pesticide byproducts such as atrazine, industrial solvents (halogenated hydrocarbons), volatile organic compounds (VOC) and chlorinated hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), radon, benzene, arsenic, mercury, lead, chromium, heavy metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), taste and odor forming compounds such as MIB and geosmin, algal toxins, endocrine disrupting compounds (EDC removal) and other micro-pollutants, pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCP removal), trihalomethane (THM) compounds like chloroform and other disinfection byproducts (DBP removal).

    Silver Activated Carbon Filter
    This Silver Activated inner replacement filter for the Bawell BW SM1 Ionizer has a life time of 6000-9000L litres.

    The life of this filter will depend on:

    • The Quality of your tap water.
    • The Reservoir supplying your area in Mauritius.
    • The Season. During drought and cyclones the quality of your tap water is greatly affected.
    • Whether a pre-filter is fitted to your unit.

      Ingredients: Silver-coated granular activated carbon

      • Remove/reduce many volatile organic chemicals (VOC).
        • Remove pesticides and herbicides
          • Remove Benzene
          • Remove Chlorine
          • Remove trihalomethane (THM)
          • Remove unpleasant solvent rihalomethane (THM)
          • Remove benzene, trihalomethane (THM)
          • Bacteria and harmful organisms
          • Remove Solvents and harmful chemicals
          • Life: 6,000-9,000L
          Very important

          When the tap water contains sediments, mud, high level of chlorine, harmful chemicals and other particles, please install a 3-Stage Pre-Filter to protect your Ionizer Unit. If these contaminants are not eliminated it will clog the activated carbon filter inside the Bawell Ionizer; reducing greatly the life span of the Ionizer and the in-built filters.
