Alarco Alfa-UV is an active carbon water filter with a UV sterilization bulb ideal for water sourced from central water supply networks of large cities. If you are affected by chlorine or your water is cloudy or has a bad smell and taste, but at the same time it is not too hard (due to calcium and magnesium salts) and does not contain other harmful salts (such as nitrites, nitrates) and/or heavy metals, Alarco Alfa-UV is for you. It sits on the counter and fits perfectly in any kitchen, thanks to its compactness and modern design.

It may be connected:
(i) to the tap, with a bipositional switch, to either receive filtered water to drink and wash fruits and vegetables, or to let the water flow from the tap for other uses;
(ii) with a countertop installation, to operate independently of the tap.

The Alarco Alfa-UV is based on its high quality, 100% natural bacteriostatic active carbon, made from coconut bark, activated with steam that prevents microbial growth inside the device and contains 100, 10 and 1 micron suspended solids filters and a UV sterilization bulb, which eliminates microbes and serves as an additional assurance stage.

Alarco Alfa-UV treats:
(i) turbidity & suspended solids such as soil, mud, rust, asbestos fibres etc.,
(ii) disinfectants such as chlorine;
(iii) organic compounds such as pesticides, trihalomethanes, etc.
(iv) Microorganisms such as e-coli, enterococci, coliforms, viruses, etc.

The carbon is certified under EN 12902 and EN 12915. All plastic are WRAS certified and all parts of the apparatus in contact with water are fully suitable for food.

Finally, it should be noted that the performance of the appliance is tested by the National Technical University of Athens, which has carried out ageing tests that confirm the excellent quality of the water that is processed by the water filter from the first to the last day of the lifespan of the cartridge. The Alarco Alfa-UV will become your and your family’s healthy habit, for drinking crystal clear and clean water. At the same time, you save money from using bottled water, protect the environment from the use of plastics, and of course, never run out of water.

Active carbon countertop filter.
Direct flow.
Cartridge, with bacteriostatic plant-based active carbon, 100% made of coconut bark, soaked with silver and polypropylene filters (PP) of 100, 10 and 1 microns.
UV sterilization bulb.
It is connected either to the tap with a bipositional switch, for water from the filter or water from the tap, or with a counter switch to operate independently.
Requires electric power.

Alarco Alfa-UV is an active carbon water filter with a UV sterilization bulb that is ideal for water mains in large cities. If you are affected by chlorine or your water is cloudy or has a bad smell and taste, but at the same time it is not too hard due to calcium and magnesium salts and does not contain other harmful salts, such as nitrites, nitrates, and heavy metals, Alarco Alfa-UV is for you.

Alarco Alfa-UV treats:

Suspended solids such as mud, stones, soil, asbestos fibers, turbidity, rust, suspended particles, etc.
Disinfecting agents such as chlorine, etc.
Organic compounds such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, trihalomethanes (THMs), pesticides, volatile compounds that create an unpleasant taste and odor in water (VOCs, phenols) etc.
Microorganisms such as e-coli, enterococci, coliforms, viruses, etc.

Alarco Alfa-UV occupies little space in the kitchen being the size of a bottle of water and it is placed on the counter in two ways:

Method 1 – Connection to tap using a bipositional switch to obtain either:
(i) filtered water to drink and wash fruits and vegetables,
(ii) tap water for other uses.

Method 2 – with a counter switch:
In this case, a small hole is made on the bench where a switch is fit that supplies water to the water filter from the mains, so that it operates independently of the tap.

Our excellent activated carbon is plant-based (100% coconut-bark), bacteriostatic, that is it blocks microbial growth, and holds EN 12902 and EN 12915 certifications.

All plastic is WRAS-certified and all parts of the apparatus in contact with water are fully suitable for food.

Finally, it should be noted that the performance of the appliance is tested by the National Technical University of Athens, which has even carried out ageing tests that confirm the excellent quality of the water that is processed by the water filter from the first to the last day of the lifespan of the cartridge.

Suspended solids and carbon cartridge:
– € 98
– Change: every 6 months or 4600 litres, according to the minimum concentration of chlorine mandated by Greek legislation, and 1800 litres, by testing x1.5 the minimum concentration of chlorine mandated by Greek legislation.
