Item Description
The Aqua-Rain Model 202 Stainless Steel Water Filter will provide your family and loved ones with laboratory proven safe drinking water...without electricity, without plumbing, and without pressure or chemical pretreatments. Our patented space-age ceramic technology positively removes dangerous living organisms and harmful bacteria from your drinking water...naturally...using microfiltration and gravity. A dense and highly adsorptive carbon filter bed has been incorporated within the ceramic shell and sterile metallic silver added to maintain purity in the filter system. The attractive super-sanitary stainless steel housing is press-formed without seams or welds and has easy lift handles. A unique "splash guard" system insures safe drinking water in daily operation. Here is what may be the best part... the AquaRain can produce quality drinking water for less than 2˘ per gallon! The Model 202 comes with a full complement of 2 high performance ceramic elements and can produce up to a half gallon per hour of premium high quality drinking water!

At the heart of our natural process micro-filter are patented high-tech ceramic filter elements specifically designed for the AquaRainŽ system. Our state-of-the-art ceramic elements filter water in a very natural way, using gravity to gently draw water down through our "cultured" ceramic stone in much the same manner as nature processes ground water through the earth. The microfine pore structure of our ceramic media will remove dangerous organisms such as protozoan cysts (Cryptosporidium, Giardia lamblia) and microscopic bacteria (E. coli, Salmonella typhimurium, etc...). Enclosed within the hard ceramic shell we have incorporated a concentrated bed of Granulated Activated Carbon (GAC) that contains a self-sterilizing metallic silver. The silvered GAC bed will adsorb various organic chemicals such as MTBE and pesticides, remove chlorine compounds including carcinogenic halogens, and improve the taste and odor of the water. To the benefit of good health, our system will also leave unchanged the naturally occurring electrolytes and minerals in your filtered water.

High-Tech Ceramic Filter Elements

At the heart of our natural process micro-filter are patented high-tech ceramic filter elements specifically designed for the AquaRainŽ system. Our state-of-the-art ceramic elements filter water in a very natural way, using gravity to gently draw water down through our "cultured" ceramic stone in much the same manner as nature processes ground water through the earth. The microfine pore structure of our ceramic media will remove dangerous organisms such as protozoan cysts (Cryptosporidium, Giardia lamblia) and microscopic bacteria (E. coli, Salmonella typhimurium, Anthrax, etc...). Enclosed within the hard ceramic shell we have incorporated a concentrated bed of Granulated Activated Carbon (GAC) that contains a self-sterilizing metallic silver. The silvered GAC bed will adsorb various organic chemicals such as MTBE and pesticides, remove chlorine compounds including carcinogenic halogens, and improve the taste and odor of the water. To the benefit of good health, our system will also leave unchanged the naturally occurring electrolytes and minerals in your filtered water.

You can depend on the proven technology used in the AquaRain and even the natural concept that it relies upon to produce safe drinking water for your family. The AquaRain Natural Water Filter is manufactured to meet stringent NSF standards and fully achieves the USEPA requirements of a Cyst and Bacteria Water Purifier. Best of all, the AquaRain is made with loving care right here in the USA with American Innovation and American Technology!

How To Operate the AquaRain

The operation of the AquaRain Natural Water Filter is simplicity itself. No energy is required nor are chemicals necessary for the filter system to work. Water is poured into the upper container where it trickles down by gravity through the highly specialized ceramic filter elements leaving cysts, bacteria and sediment in the outer layer of the ceramic. After passing through the thick ceramic wall, the water then flows through a bed of silvered coconut shell carbon which adsorbs pesticides, various organic chemicals, and chlorine (if present), along with objectionable color, tastes and odors. The filtered water then drips into the lower container where it is stored for easy dispensing with the handy lever-action faucet.

New, dry elements will need several gallons of water run through them, sometimes 10 or 12, before they are fully wetted and reach their maximum flow rate. In normal usage, water for filtration is placed in the upper vessel in the evening and allowed to filter through overnight. In the morning, most of the water should have filtered through into the lower dispensing container. Additional water may then be added to the upper container for filtration during the day. If maximum production is desired, it will be necessary to keep the upper vessel as full as possible, perhaps refilling every fifteen minutes. To halt the production of filtered water, simply lift the upper container off and empty it. If desired, the stainless steel lid can then be placed on the bottom container which may be used as a convenient and compact counter-top water dispenser.

Over time, small particulates and bacteria may accumulate on the walls of the elements and slow the production of water through the filter. When this occurs, simply remove each of the filter elements and lightly clean the hard surface of the ceramic with a brush or the scrub pad provided. The elements are then reinstalled in the upper filter vessel. Proper cleaning will restore the AquaRain Natural Water Filter to full flow rates, each and every time.

Question: How much water will the AquaRainŽ Natural Water Filter produce?

Answer: Our factory testing has established a water production rate of approximately one gallon per hour for the AquaRainŽ Model 400. This maximum production figure has been established with clean fully wetted elements and relatively clear water. Keeping the upper vessel as full as possible, perhaps refilling every fifteen minutes, is essential to reach the maximum production potential.

Proper cleaning will restore the filter to full flow rates, each and every time.

Question: How long do the filter elements last?

Answer: There are two parts to the filter elements; the ceramic shell, and the granulated carbon filling. Cleaning of the ceramic shell is what wears out the ceramic portion of the filter. Over time, particulates and bacteria clog the microscopic pores of the ceramic, slowing down the flow rate. Occasional cleaning with a small brush or the enclosed green scrub pad will restore the original flow rates. Eventually, cleaning of the ceramic will wear the walls down, making them thinner. When the attached gauge can fit over the diameter of the ceramic, you know it is time to replace the element. Our ceramic formulation is very hard and will endure many cleanings, perhaps over 200 if moderate care is taken and light pressure is used. In normal usage this equates to thousands of gallons of water that can be filtered.

The inner carbon filter works by adsorbing and/or reducing certain chemicals, and has a finite lifetime based on the concentration of the compounds being reduced. Generally speaking, the carbon capacity should exceed the life of the ceramic portion of the filter when processing water from most sources. Annual replacement of cartridges should guarantee sufficient carbon capacity for maximum protection. Please note that should the carbon become exhausted, that the elements are still fully effective for the removal of protozoic cysts and harmful bacteria, provided the remaining ceramic wall thickness still has useful life.

Question: How do you clean the ceramic elements?

Answer: The ceramic elements are very easy to clean. You simply remove them from the upper container, and while holding the threaded end of the filter upright, brush lightly downward toward the end cap. After you have lightly cleaned the surface, simply rinse and reinstall the element . Occasionally it will be necessary to lightly abrade the surface with the supplied green pad to restore full flow rate, perhaps after 3 to 5 brush cleanings.

Question: How do you store the filter system?

Answer: If you wish to store the AquaRainŽ Natural Water Filter, simply remove the filter elements and allow them to completely air dry for at least 24 hours or more. Dry the containers and all parts, then slide the lower container into the upper container to nest them together for compact storage.

Question: Has the AquaRainŽ Natural Water Filter been laboratory tested?

Answer: Extensive independent testing is the key to proving the performance of any water filter product. The ceramic filter media used in the AquaRainŽ Natural Water Filter has been thoroughly tested by independent laboratories and government agencies. In fact, an especially difficult testing program has been used where expended "worn out" elements have been tested to positively demonstrate that the ceramic elements remain fully effective throughout their entire life. To the best of our knowledge, no other manufacturer has dared to test in this manner.

There still remain special additional state testing and filing requirements as yet not completed that prohibit us from making specific health claims in the states of California, Iowa or Wisconsin.
