Self-cleaning Water Filter
The unique NATURAL CLEANING operation of AquaKitch enable near-zero maintenance yet assuring clean filter at all times.
UF membrane requires no maintenance, and has unlimited life span, provided the installation is properly done and based on normal kitchen usage.
When the main incoming water passes through the UF membrane, the water will be automatically separated to meet two different basic requirements: *
– extremely clean, toxic-tree, safe and healthy water for drinking purpose and
– high flow-rate unfiltered water for washing
Such unique cleaning efficiency also overcomes the weakness of low anti-fouling index (an indicator of difficulty to be cleaned) of Polysulphonate, the food-graded material used for the membrane.
Furthermore, the UF membrane, with its ability filter particles down to 0.01 micron, is capable of separating not just bacteria, but also viruses. Despite this favourable ability, the main function of the membrane is to merely the activated carbon from pre-exhaustion, a far simpler role in comparison to the earlier.
Smaller compared to the main tap. It is normally installed on the kitchen top, beside the sink. It is specially meant for drinking purpose.
The whole filter system is hidden underneath the sink, inside the kitchen cabinet.
The reason we are able to “hide” the filter is because this unique filter system requires no maintenance; instead, it will be naturally cleaned every time the main tap is turned on.
