A water filter removes impurities by lowering contamination of water using a fine physical barrier, a chemical process, or a biological process. the above is the definition for water filter. but kangen water filter certainly does not mean above. enagic kangen water machine in india is a water ionizer it is not a water filter.
a water filters main target is do deal with impurities and contamination of water and make it safe clean water. if you want this only you need not go for kangen water machine. but kangen water machine is a special medical grade device which converts your safe normal drinking water into all round healthy water. this machine water has special properties like antioxidant, anti inflammatory, hydrogen rich, alkaline and micro clustering properties.
the filter used in kangen water machines is an activated carbon filter. Carbon filtering is a method of filtering that uses a bed of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities, using chemical adsorption. Each particle/granule ofcarbon provides a large surface area/pore structure, allowing contaminants the maximum possible exposure to the active sites within the filter media.Active charcoal carbon filters are most effective at removing chlorine, sediment, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), taste and odor from water. They are not effective at removing minerals, salts, and dissolvedinorganic compounds.
The filter in kangen water machine or any alkaline water ionizer can mainly remove chlorine and some other heavy metals. they can not remove bacteria and virus in water. impurities also selected impurities. if you are more skeptical about micro biological safeness of water it is always best practice to input purified water or safe water into any quality alkaline water ionizer. kangen water activated carbon filter costs around 7000 rs and works for 5000 liters approximately. but this depends on the quality of input water.
