Alarco Life is an active carbon filter 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/or heavy metals, Alarco Life is for you. It sits on the counter and fits perfectly in any kitchen, thanks to its compact size and modern design.

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

The Alarco Life is based on its high quality bacteriostatic activated carbon, which is 100% natural (made from coconut bark) and steam activated, preventing microbial growth on its and 100, 10 and 1 micron suspended solids filters, which manages to treat:
(i) turbidity & suspended solids such as soil, mud, rust, asbestos fibers etc.,
(ii) disinfectants such as chlorine;
(iii) organic compounds such as pesticides, trihalomethanes, etc.

The carbon is certified under EN 12902 and EN 12915. 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. The Alarco Life 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-baed active carbon, 100% made of coconut bark, soaked with silver and polypropylene filters (PP) of 100, 10 and 1 microns.

It is connected either to the tap with a bipositional separator (for water from the filter or water from the tap) or with a counter switch to operate independently.

No electric power needed.

Alarco Life is an active carbon water filter 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/or heavy metals, Alarco Life is for you.

Alarco Life 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 cause an unpleasant taste and odor in water (VOCs, phenols) etc.

Alarco Life occupies little space in the kitchen as it is about the size of a bottle of water and 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 counter switch:
In this case, a small hole is made on the bench where a switch is fit that supplies water to the filter from the mains, so that it operates independently of the tap.

Our excellent active 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 that come in contact with water are fully suitable for digestion.

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.
