How to Choose the Right Replacement Filter

The water filter is essentially a "shell" in which an activated carbon filter is usually placed. This replacement filter reduces harmful substances to the body. So when you choose where to install your filter (on the bench, under the counter or even in the kitchen tap), it remains to choose which or what replacement filters you will place inside. With this guide we hope to help you make the right choice for your area and the quality of your water.

In each water filter you see on our page you can change the replacement filter that we accompany it and choose one of the following parts:


PREMIUM CTO: Permeability 5 microns. The activated carbon in this filter is derived from coconut bark. It reduces chlorine, chloroform, suspended particles, sand and rust, sludge, soils, total organic carbon, industrial organic compounds (tetrachlorethylene, trichlorethylene), dissolved organic compounds, organic paint, dissolved iron, manganese and other harmful substances. It greatly improves the taste and smell of water. Suitable for most areas of Greece, Athens as well as Thessaloniki.

PREMIUM LRC: Narrow filtration at 0.5 microns. Special in reducing lead. It reduces chlorine, organic volatile compounds (VOCs), organic chemicals, unpleasant taste and odor, suspended particles, turbidity, sand, rust, sludge, soil, pesticides, herbicides, trihalomethanes, residual chlorine, total Organic carbon, organic organic compounds (tetrachlorethylene, trichlorethylene), dissolved organic compounds, organic paint, dissolved iron, manganese, industrial waste, alachlor, endrin, simazine, atrazine, ethylbenzene, styrene, benzene, ethylene dibromide (EDB), 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane, carbofuran, haloacetonitriles, tetrachloroethylene, carbon tetrachloride, bromochloroacetonitrile, toluene, chlorobenzene, dibromoacetonitrile, 2,4,5-TP(silvex), chloropicrin, dichloroacetonitrile, tribromoacetic acid, 2,4-D, trichloroacetonitrile, 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene, dibromochloropropane (DBCP), haloketones, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, o-dichlorobenzene, 1,1-dichloro-2-propanone, 1,1,2-trichloroethane, p-dichlorobenzene, 1,1,1-trichloro-2-propanone, trichloroethylene, 1,2-dichloroethane, heptachlor, trihalomethanes (TTHM), 1,1-dichloroethylene, heptachlor epoxide, bromodichloromethane, cis-1,2-dichloroethylene, hexachlorobutadiene, bromoform, trans-1,2-dichloroethylene, hexachlorocyclopentadiene, chlorodibromomethane, 1,2-dichloropropane, lindane, chloroform, cis-1,3-dichloropropylene, methoxychlor, xylenes, dinoseb, pentachlorophenol. It also reduces the heavy metals and lead. Suitable for most areas of Greece and especially for the historical center of Athens and the center of Thessaloniki where elevated levels of lead are an issue.

PREMIUM BCC: PREMIUM BCC is an amazing filter made of activated carbon from coconut bark. This is the most ecological solution for clean water. Its permeability is only 1 μm and can reduce chlorine, chloroform, pesticides, insecticides, and a large list of harmful substances and chemicals. It is impregnated with bacteriostatic silver that prevents the growth of bacteria. It offers delicious and clean water for the whole family. It is certified by NSF and WRAS to be sure of the quality of your water! Ideal filter for areas with intense bacterial load and of course for most areas of Greece.

PREMIUM UFC: Ultrafiltration technology using hollow fiber membranes changes the way we clean and process water around the world. Until a few years ago, this technology was so expensive that we only encountered it at very large water recycling plants. Now, after many years of research, this technology can be integrated into household water filters. This filter cleans the water in 2 stages. In the first stage the water is forced to pass from the solid activated carbon from coconut bark with a permeability of 10μm. In the second stage the water passes through the Hollow Fiber membranes with a permeability of 0.01 μm. PREMIUM UFC reduces an incredibly large list of contaminants such as chlorine, bacteria, viruses, colloids, etc. It fits most commercial devices. It has NSF certification. An amazing filter, ideal for most areas of Greece, especially where water is quite "difficult".

PRIMATO ULTRA CTO: Διαπερατότητα 5 μm (microns). It reduces chlorine, chloroform, suspended particles, sand and rust, sludge, soils, total organic carbon, industrial organic compounds (tetrachlorethylene, trichlorethylene), dissolved organic compounds, organic paint, dissolved iron, manganese, industrial waste and other Harmful substances. It greatly improves the taste and smell of water.

PRIMATO ULTRA VOC: Filters slightly more "narrow" than the Primato ULTRA CTO. It is special in reducing pesticides. Permeability 0.5 micron. It reduces chlorine, organic volatile compounds (VOCs), organic chemicals, unpleasant taste and odor, suspended particles, turbidity, sand, rust, sludge, soil, pesticides, herbicides, trihalomethanes, residual chlorine, total Organic carbon, organic organic compounds (tetrachlorethylene, trichlorethylene), dissolved organic compounds, organic paint, dissolved iron, manganese, industrial waste, alachlor, endrin, simazine, atrazine, ethylbenzene, styrene, benzene, ethylene dibromide (EDB), 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane, carbofuran, haloacetonitriles, tetrachloroethylene, carbon tetrachloride, bromochloroacetonitrile, toluene, chlorobenzene, dibromoacetonitrile, 2,4,5-TP(silvex), chloropicrin, dichloroacetonitrile, tribromoacetic acid, 2,4-D, trichloroacetonitrile, 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene, dibromochloropropane (DBCP), haloketones, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, o-dichlorobenzene, 1,1-dichloro-2-propanone, 1,1,2-trichloroethane, p-dichlorobenzene, 1,1,1-trichloro-2-propanone, trichloroethylene, 1,2-dichloroethane, heptachlor, trihalomethanes (TTHM), 1,1-dichloroethylene, heptachlor epoxide, bromodichloromethane, cis-1,2-dichloroethylene, hexachlorobutadiene, bromoform, trans-1,2-dichloroethylene, hexachlorocyclopentadiene, chlorodibromomethane, 1,2-dichloropropane, lindane, chloroform, cis-1,3-dichloropropylene, methoxychlor, xylenes, dinoseb, pentachlorophenol

George Margiolos was born in Thessaloniki and has graduated from the Department of Marketing of the Alexandreio Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki. He is fluent in English and (not so fluent) in German.

Ηe has been Project Manager at Avery Dennison - Fastener Division in the UK. There, his main project was to redesign the company's products into new applications so as to become more environmentally friendly. In combination with the fact that in the UK people are more familiar with water filters, he has developed a love for environmentally friendly water filters, which reduce the use of plastic bottles and improving people's quality of life.

Since 2008, he has published over 300 unique educational and informative articles on water filters and new water treatment technologies.

Occasionally, universities and doctoral students request to use George Margiolos' articles in their research because of their quality and uniqueness.
