Primato HCS water filter is a beautiful & elegant filter made in the USA. It is easily connected to your kitchen tap with a switch so that you select filtered water to drink or unfiltered water to wash dishes. It includes the CeraMetix® replacement filter.

CeraMetix® CeraMetix® cleans the water in 2 stages. In the first stage there is the patented CeraCyl®, a ceramic material with soaked silver which removes cysts and pathogenic bacteria and prevents the growth of bacteria and mitosis. It has the ability to self-sterilize. In the second stage there is the also patented AquaMetix®, a patented combination of two types of activated carbon with Zeolite. Activated carbon zeolites are combined with special polymers to create an extremely compact and porous water filter that fits most commercial devices. In the third stage there is a special salt reduction filter that softens the water and reduces the aesthetic effect of the salts (the known white spots in the kitchen sink).

It is the only combination filter that reduces cysts, pathogens, chlorine, bacteria, limescale, Cryptosporids, Fluorides, lead, heavy metals, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pharmaceutical formulations, nitrate, arsenic, chromium, chloramines, herbicides, Glyphosate, trihalomethanes, MTBE, aluminum, iron, mercury, nickel, zinc, industrial residues, turbidity and a very large list of dangerous components in a single cartridge.

Cerametix is made in the USA from raw materials with the highest FDA specifications, state-of-the-art technologies and unprecedented performance.

In a nutshell...

CeraMetix® is a candle type cartridge that cleans water in 2 stages. In the first stage, there is the patented CeraCyl®, and in the second stage, there is also the patented AquaMetix®. CeraSyl® is a ceramic material (like porcelain) with bacteriostatic impregnated silver which is designed to trap particles smaller than 0.2μm (the average diameter of a human hair is 100 μm). It can trap bacteria and cysts to provide you with clean and safe water. Silver gives the filter bacteriostatic properties that prevent mitosis and allow it to self-sterilize . Because the ceramic filter is fairly "narrow", the flow of water is reduced over time. When it clogs, then simply rub it gently under running water with a kitchen sponge (on the soft side). This will remove all the mud and rust that has stuck to the outer shell and will restore the flow of water to normal levels. As the filter is quite compact, it allows the water to stay longer in the second stage of AquaMetix® and thus clean it even better from harmful substances

  • Nominal permeability 0.2 μm >99.9% . This practically means that out of the 100 particles with a diameter of 0.2μm that will try to penetrate the filter, 99.9% of them will not succeed.
  • Absolute permeability 0.5 μm. This means that out of the 100 particles with a diameter of 0.5μm that will try to penetrate the filter, none will succeed.
  • 100% cyst removal
  • 99.9999% reduction of pathogenic bacteria
  • You can clean the filter with a soft sponge for better water flow and life extension.
  • Impregnated with silver that acts as a bacteriostatic and allows the filter to self-sterilize.

Aquametix®, which is on the second stage, is a patented combination of two types of activated carbon with Zeolite. Zeolites are combined with activated carbon through special polymers to create an extremely compact and porous water filter. It is made in the USA from raw materials with the highest FDA specifications, cutting-edge technologies and unprecedented performance.

CeraMetix® is the only filter that reduces cysts, pathogens, chlorine , bacteria, microplastics, cryptosporids, fluoride, lead, heavy metals, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), drug and pharmaceutical compounds, arsenic, chromium, nitrates, chloramines, pesticides, Glyphosate, triloganomethane, MTBE, aluminum, iron, mercury, nickel, zinc, industrial residues, turbidity and a large number of hazardous elements with a single cartridge.

  • Microplastics 99%
  • Chloramines: 90.3% ENVIROTEK certification based on ANSI / NSF Standard 42. Some municipalities, instead of using chlorine to disinfect water, use chloramine (a combination of chlorine and ammonia). The reason is that chloramines remain active in water more than chlorine. That is, if drinking water has a long way to go before it reaches your tap, then chloramine is better than chlorine. It also reduces the combination of chloramine, monochloramine and ammonia.
  • > 98% THM (Trihalomethanes). Trihalomethanes (ΤΗΜs) in water are by-products of chlorine disinfection. The most common compounds controlled by water services are chloroform, bromophorm, dibromochloromethane, and bromodichloromethane.
  • MTBE Methyl tert-butyl ether reduction by 97.6%. ENVIROTEK Certification. Methyl triobutyl (MTBE) is a volatile organic compound added to gasoline to reduce carbon monoxide and ozone levels in car emissions. In California, the addition of MTBE improved air quality by reducing car emissions by 14% at the state level. Unfortunately, in recent years, methyl triobutyl has begun to appear in water as well.
  • It effectively reduces industrial residues, toxicity, turbidity, particulate matter, mud, rust, soil and various other substances harmful to the body.
  • Reduction of radionuclides
  • It does not remove the minerals and trace elements that are necessary for the body.
  • It significantly improves the taste and smell of water.
  • It must be replaced at least once a year or every 2300 liters.

A few words about activated carbon

coconut shell carbon

The activated carbon that CeraMetix® has is a completely natural product that looks like a fine, odorless, tasteless and non-toxic black powder. It can be produced from peat, bamboo, charcoal, wood, sawdust, coconut husk, olive kernels, but also from oil. It is heated in a controlled environment and in vacuum to acquire its characteristic porous surface. These tiny holes, or pores, can increase the surface of carbon from 500 to 1500 m2 / gr. Due to this treatment, it can and does bind various substances that come in contact with it, in liquid or gaseous form, and in quantities many times its own weight. One cubic centimeter of activated carbon has the same area as a surface of 50,000 square meters. Of course, the activated carbon produced from coconut husk is the most ecological and environmentally friendly! CeraMetix® combines two types of activated carbon with Zeolite.

A few words about Zeolite

Ζεόλιθος στα φίλτρα νερού

Zeolite is a mineral of volcanic origin that, due to its special chemical properties, is used in water treatment industry, environmental protection, crops, agriculture, etc. It was named so in 1756 by the Swedish miner Axel Kronstadt, who observed that rapid stilbite heating produced a large amount of steam from the water absorbed by the material. Therefore, he named this material zeolite, from the greek words zeo (boil) and lithos (lite=stone).

It contains a significant amount of clinoptilolite and it is also used in nuclear treatment, as it can purify nuclear waste containing radioactive isotopes. One of its most important functions is the ability to bind and eliminate heavy metals, such as lead, mercury, cadmium, aluminum and extra iron, without removing healthy ions and metals.

"How do I choose the right cartridge for my water filter?"

Below the "Add to cart" button you can click on "HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT FILTER". A text will appear on your screen summarizing the functions of available replacement filters for this water filter. Other replacement filters fit into your housing as well, but because there are a lot, we only recommend specific filters.

Also, just below the product description, you will see the available cartridges. If you click on the quick view "eye" you will see a summary of the specific cartridge. If you click on the image, you will be taken to the cartridge page where you can see more details. If you have not yet decided which replacement filter is right for your water filter, simply contact us! We will be happy to assist you!

"Should I install a filter on the counter or under the kitchen counter?"

This depends on your needs and the available space in your kitchen. Generally speaking, the countertop filters can be installed in seconds, but they take up space on the kitchen counter. Under-sink filters do not require space on the bench, but they need skilled hands for installation or even a plumber.

"I do not know if I need a single, double or triple filter"

If you are having problem with your water's bad taste and odour, then you need a single filter. But if you also have a lot of dirt in your water, then you need a double filter - the first stage will be a filter for reducing mud and the second one an activated carbon filter for reducing chemicals. But if you have 3 problems (eg hard water, mud and bad taste), then you need a triple filter, one for the reduction of scale, one for the mud and one for improving taste and reducing chemicals. If you use drilling water then you need a reverse osmosis filter. Whatever problem you are facing with your water, if you are not sure, just contact us! We will be glad to find the right water filter!

"How do I remember when to change my cartridge?"

Forget abou it! When it's time to change your cartridge, we'll call you or email you to remind you!

"If some part of the filter breaks, do you have spare parts?"

We have all the parts you may need for your water filer.

"What does the warranty include?"

In order for the warranty to be valid, you must maintain the filter correctly (of course it's not valid if you break it yourself and you should use the cartridges displayed in our website. If you clean your water filter internally every time you change the filters and if you change the filters at the scheduled time, your water filter should last for many, many, many years. If, however, your water filter has a problem of our own fault, (even if it was damaged during transportation) , we immediately take it back at our own expense and send a new one as soon as possible.

"I have lost the wrench and can not unscrew the device to change the cartridge"

We have all the parts you may need for your water filter, including the wrench. Feel free to contact us for assistance.

"I can't or I don't want to order electronically. Is there any other way?"

Of course! Just call us at +30 2310 383 588 and we'll take your order over the phone!

"I want to pay using my credit/debit card, but I do'nt have good computer knowledge."

No problem! Just call us at +30 2310 383 588 while you are on your computer and we will help you order online step by step.

"How long does the courier need to deliver the products to my house?"

Click on the "SHIPPING AND PAYMENT COSTS" located under the product's price for details.

"What if my water's quality changes?"

Contact us to find the right filter for you or browse our website to check all the available cartridges.

"Who will install the filter?"

Each water filter includes instructions in case you want to install the water filter yourselves. We've also made installation videos. You will find them on the product page you are interested in. Of course our experienced technicians are always on duty and at your disposal if you need assistance!
