About carbon water filters from Carbonit

Our mono block carbon water filters by Carbonit are specifically designed for heavy chemical contamination. The GFP Premium cartridge has 55% more active carbon and therefore a longer contact and reaction time with the water. This special cartridge is highly effective for treating our US tap water by filtering harmful chemicals out and leaving natural minerals in.

The effectiveness of CARBONIT water filters has been TÜV tested and confirmed in numerous studies and applications. Carbon water filter from CARBONIT are designed and produced in Germany.

Why use carbon block water filters?

Tap water in the US is heavily contaminated with chemicals. Old pipes in old buildings can also be a source of sediment and particle contamination (lead, copper, etc.). A filtration system targeting those chemicals can be very effective for your drinking water.

Carbon water filters target many kinds of contaminants. There are two main types of carbon filters: carbon granules (Britta table filter) and heat-treated (baked) carbon mono block filters (cartridges).

Carbon mono block filters are used for higher flow rates, compatible with the flow rate of a typical home faucet/sink. Mono block filters undergo a unique heat treatment process to prevent bleed through, unlike carbon granules that may release absorbed toxins back into the water.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Your tap water is toxic, containing many unwanted chemicals, heavy metals, and pharmaceutical residue.

Carbon filters remove substances such as: copper, lead, chlorine, chloroform, medication residue, pesticides, microorganisms, bacteria, fungus, DDT, lindane, atrazine, lime and rust particles, etc.

Yes. Our carbon water filters remove lead and copper from your tap water.

The difference between reverse osmosis (RO)  and carbon filtration is the demineralization of water. RO systems remove nearly everything from the water including beneficial minerals, leaving it with 0-3 ppm (parts per million). Carbon water filters focus on removing only the harmful contaminants while retaining balanced mineral content in the water.

In order to exchange a filter, you unscrew the housing of the cartridge from the base with a specially designed plastic wrench.

The new filter cartridge is exchanged and the housing screws back onto the base, either of your inline device or your counter-top model.

All CARBONIT filters have a life time of 6 months and/or 3,435 gallons.

User Guide

What happens when I boil structured water?

After boiling structured water 90% of the structure will remain. The loss of 10% is insignificant; we recommend to use cold structured water, then boil it and then use it for your coffee or tea.

We also recommend to structure your water first before processing it in any way and then adding minerals or other chemical components afterwards.

Can I use my water structurer for other liquids besides water?

Yes. You can use your water structuring device for other clear liquids without large sediments. Wine, whiskey, vodka, tequila and other clear alcoholic beverages are fine to use. Juices, milks and carbonated liquids are not equipped for any UMH water structuring device. When using other liquids besides water make sure to rinse your UMH device with clear water right after.

Does my water structuring device require cleaning and maintenance?

Yes. Depending on your device there is a little bit of uptake required. All inline devices are completely free of maintenance. The UMH Alpha, Live and Delta need to be maintained and cleaned 1-2 times per year.  

How many times do I run my water through the stand-alone or portable UMH water structuring device?

One time is fully sufficient. If you want to, you can run it through several times which will increase the crystallinity every time you run it through. One can use this feature for alchemical applications or to optimize the efficacy of hydration.

Cleaning Instructions

Fill a pot with structured water high enough to submerge your UMH water device; bring to a boil, turn off heat and wait 10 minutes to cool down. Add 6 tablespoons (TBS) of baking soda and solve in hot water. Submerge the UMH water structuring device fully and let sit for 30 minutes. Use a ladle to carefully submerge your device. Then rinse the device under running water and let dry. Reattach all parts of your UMH device and make sure you put all rubber/cardboard washers back in place. If you restructure other liquids (e.g. wine, whiskey, tequila, vodka, etc.) please rinse the device right after. Do not structure any liquids that contain sediments like fruit flesh, also no tea, coffee, milk or carbonated drinks. Please do not use harsh chemicals or vinegar to clean your UMH water device! Thank you and much Love.

UMH Alpha

Undo all parts and rubber washers. Detach the golden ball from the UMH Alpha horizontally and leave the golden nozzle attached to the Alpha stand and remove the glass funnel.

UMH Live with Travel Kit

Undo all parts and rubber washers. Detach the golden nozzle on the bottom of the UMH Live and remove the lab-grade plastic funnel.

UMH Delta

Undo all parts and rubber washers. Detach the UMH Delta main housing from the stand and remove the glass funnel.
