Billabong Water Filter Information : Australis Water Purifiers, Ceramic Water Filters and Benchtop Water Purifiers - Australia

Billabong Water Filter Information

The Billabong range of ceramic water purifiers are handmade in Australia and will provide you with naturally cool, great tasting water.

These purifiers are hand turned on a wheel unlike other molded ceramic purifiers, each one is individual turned on a wheel by a potter

By combining the 4 elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, the water purifier systems and functional pottery.

Used since the late Stone Age, pottery has proven to be an ideal material for cooking and storing which does not leave unwanted chemicals or metals in the food. We believe stoneware is the perfect non-toxic material for filtering and storing your drinking water.

The Billabong range are "high fire" water purifiers systems in a kiln to a temperature of 1280 degrees centigrade. Each piece of our stoneware system is hand made and hand decorated. There will be a slight variation in size, colour, design and shape which makes each system uniquely individual.

All of our systems are supplied with an Australis Ceramic filter, made in Australia, unless you select an alternate filter candle.

The Australis filter supplied is a sub-micron filter using ceramic, activated carbon, and silver. This gives 3 stages of filtration using 100% natural media. Used around the world to make safe drinking water.

The Billabong range are designed to provide a lifetime of service and well being by combining the ceramic filter technology with our handmade stoneware container. Stoneware is the perfect way to filter and store your drinking water, it will not leach any impurities, keeps it cool naturally, and can last forever. Units tend to out last their owners and are handed down to the next family member

How Does It Work?

  1. Simply add water to the Purifier insert(upper chamber)container.
  2. The water will first pass through the micro porous ceramic wall of the filter removing 99% of suspended solids and 99.99% of bacteria.
  3. The ceramic wall of the filter has silver locked into it which acts as a natural biocide to keep the stored water pure.
  4. Next the water passes through the activated carbon in the centre of the filter.
  5. The carbon will filter out amoeba, algae, & bad tastes.
  6. The water will then drip into the storage container.
  7. The flow rate of the filter is about one litre an hour while covered with water.
  8. Add ice to the filter container if you require cooler water.
