Introducing Cleansui For the past 27 years, CLEANSUI water filters have been used in more homes and businesses in Japan than any other brand of water filter. Its unique hollow-fibre membrane technology ensures that contaminants, including bacteria, are removed while allowing beneficial minerals to remain in the water. Rather than buying lots of bottles of mineral water, people are increasing looking to use filtered tap water as their main source of drinking water. Not only does it provide health benefits, it also saves money and is kinder to the environment. CLEANSUI. Clean water every time.

CLEANSUI, the trusted brand of instant water purifiers in Japan, removes contaminants but leaves healthy minerals intact. CLEANSUI’s original proprietary filtration system ensures the high level of performance. The unique and advanced filtration system uses a combination of filtering net, non-woven fabric, ceramics, activated carbon with hollow fibre membrane filters.

The special ceramic filter removes soluble lead, apart from other contaminants. (Insoluble lead can be removed by the hollow fibre membrane filter.)

The activated carbon filter reduces unpleasant odors, chlorine and mould (2-MIB) from your drinking water. It also successfully removes pesticides, herbicides, CAT, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) such as total trihalomethanes (chloroform, bromodichloromethane, dibromochloromethane, bromoform), tetrachloroethylene, trichloroethylene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, etc.

The core competency of CLEANSUI, the hollow fibre membrane filter, is made of ultra-fine polyethylene. The sidewalls can remove minute particles (as small as 0.1 micrometer) from tap water- including bacteria, algae, fungi, micro-organisms, cysts, cryptosporidium, and metal particles such as rust, lead, etc.

Advanced technology The microporous hollow fibre membrane is a sophisticated filter developed by Mitsubishi Rayon’s macromolecular chemical technology. Each hollow fibre membrane has a macaroni-shaped cross section and has millions of pores on the sidewall. It can remove particles as small as 0.1 micrometer from tap water.

Water & Your Health Cleansui purified water vs. boiled water • Boiling water removes oxygen which is essential for the human body, whilst CLEANSUI retains oxygen and healthy minerals. • Boiling only kills some bacteria and the remains of these germs become a breeding ground for germs already in the human body. • Boiled water only removes live disease germs, but leaves bacterial soil for the growth of other bacteria, whilst CLEANSUI removes all bacteria. • Boiling eliminates only some of the chlorine present in water, whilst CLEANSUI removes all traces • Boiling requires additional energy (eg. electricity or gas) whilst CLEANSUI does not. What about bottled water? • Current regulations offer little assurance of water quality or source of water. • According to a four-year study by the Natural Resources Defence Council in the USA, bottled water is not necessarily cleaner or safer than most tap water. • The study included testing of more than 1,000 bottles sold under 103 brands. About 22% of the tested bottled water contained contaminants. • Some of these contaminants, if consumed over a long period of time, could be carcinogenic or cause other health problems. • The environmental impact of bottled water production is monumental. • CLEANSUI is more convenient, provides higher water quality and costs a fraction of what bottled water costs.
