How Do Bamboo Charcoal Water Filters Work?

Updated: Dec 28, 2020

The UK enjoys some of the highest standards where drinking water is and it truly is among some of the very best in the world - but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t always room for improvement somewhere and if you’re keen to drink the purest water possible, you might want to invest in some eco-friendly bamboo charcoal water filters.

Bamboo charcoal has actually been used for water filtration for centuries, which should give you some indication of how effective it is, since it’s still going strong even now. The secret to its success is just how very porous it is, meaning it’s capable of absorbing and retaining any nasty impurities very easily indeed.

But that’s not all these filters can do for you and your water! Bamboo charcoal itself is also rich in a wide variety of minerals, including calcium, sodium, magnesium and potassium, so as it cleans your water, it also enriches it at the same time.

They’re very easy to use, you’ll be pleased to hear… all you have to do is put your charcoal pieces in water for a couple of hours and then top up the water levels as and when required.

The charcoals themselves should last for around two months and once they’ve served their purpose, don’t throw them away as you can use them around the house, whether you want to keep them in the fridge to remove any nasty smells or help you deal with mouldy kitchens or bathrooms.

Alternatively, you can easily just put them in your compost bin, or break them up and bury them in the garden - a very versatile product that we know you’re going to just love.
