What exactly do Bluewater’s water purifiers deliver?

chevron-down

Bluewater SuperiorOsmosis™ patented technology delivers on-demand cleaner, healthier water direct from the tap. Innovated with love in Sweden, Bluewater water purifiers are designed to improve the user’s quality of life, health and wellbeing by removing practically all known contaminants from drinking water, including microorganisms, pesticides, heavy metals and toxins.

What kind of water do you purify?

chevron-down

Bluewater’s focus is cleaning municipal water delivered to homes and light commercial enterprises. However, with the correct pre-filtration Bluewater technology can purify most types of water. For example, Bluewater can purify brackish water in the Swedish archipelago with TDS levels up to 7500 PPM.

So do Bluewater products remove bacteria?

chevron-down

SuperiorOsmosis™ offers innovative second-generation reverse osmosis and removes anything larger than the water molecule, including bacteria. It drastically reduces any microorganisms in water. However, if you suspect that bacteria are present in your tap water, we also recommend adding UV-light.

Does Bluewater provide whole house solutions?

chevron-down

Bluewater’s primary focus is on tap drinking water. However, we can provide whole house solutions when required.

What differs Bluewater from other Reverse Osmosis solution provider?

chevron-down

Bluewater’s two top of the line models, Spirit and Pro, utilize our patented SuperiorOsmosis™ technology that enables us to purify tap water faster, at a higher purification grade, and with less wastage. The Bluewater Cleone model has won wide acclaim for being the best-in-class reverse osmosis water purifier in the industry, which is why we offer a lengthy warranty.

Cleone doesn’t have SuperiorOsmosis™ technology. Why would someone buy a Cleone instead of a cheaper alternative?

chevron-down

Cleone defines the word ‘quality’ and boasts innovative design. In Italy, Cleone is known as ‘The Tank’ because it never breaks down, working 24/7 all year round to deliver pure, fresh and tasty drinking water.

How often do you need to change the filters?

chevron-down

The frequency of filter change depends on water quality and varies from one area to another. In general, the pre-filters should be changed every six months.

Can consumers change the filters themselves?

chevron-down

Changing a filter is not hard. However, many of our dealers also offer attractive and popular service packages that include the changing of filters.

Can you use any faucet with a Bluewater water purifier?

chevron-down

We recommend you use a faucet designed specifically for RO use when installing a Bluewater water purifiers.

Where and how is Bluewater incorporated?

chevron-down

Bluewater is the registered trademark of Blueblue AB, a privately-owner Swedish company. The founder, Mr. Bengt Rittri, also launched the leading global air-cleaning brand, Blueair, which was established in 1996 and sold to Unilever in 2016. The Bluewater brand comprises three water purifier product lines: the Bluewater Cleone, the Bluewater Spirit and the Bluewater Pro.

Does the Cleone purify all kinds of water?

chevron-down

The Bluewater Cleone is designed to purify water being delivered from a municipal water utility. The Cleone harnesses a basic five-stage filtration system comprising 3-stage pre-filtration, reverse osmosis and carbon post-filtration. Together this helps ensure impurities and contaminants that may be found in municipal water are removed.

How often do I need to change a filter?

chevron-down

The frequency of filter change depends naturally on the quality of the water being purified by your Cleone. We generally advise filters should be changed at least every six months. However, Cleone is equipped with a handy ‘water quality monitor’ to supervise the quality of feed and filtered water – should the water deteriorate, a blue lamp will light up to advise you a filter change is required.

Is it difficult to change a filter?

chevron-down

Changing a filter in a Cleone has been designed to be as easy as possible. The Cleone manual explains the simple steps required to change a filter or, alternatively, look at our filter change video, which will talk you through the process.

I have heard bacteria can build up in the holding tank of a water purifier, is that a risk with the Bluewater Cleone?

chevron-down

If a reverse osmosis system is not cleaned and sanitized regularly there is a potential risk of bacterial, fungal and mold growth in the holding tank, on the membrane, and on the tank lining. To protect against this happening, Bluewater Cleone has an ‘intelligent membrane flush’ that automatically flushes the membrane with a turbulent water stream, prevents feed water from standing still and starts every new filtration process with fresh feed water.

How long will my Bluewater Cleone last?

chevron-down

The Bluewater Cleone has been engineered to deliver you cleaner, healthier water that you can trust for drinking and washing fruit and vegetables for a great many years. In Italy, the Cleone has won the nickname ‘The Tank’ due to its durability reputation.

What is acceptable drinking water?

chevron-down

The EPA sets a maximum level 500 PPM,  although we would say anything above 170 PPM can be considered as ‘hard’ and will not taste as pure as nature intended.

Does water temperature impact TDS readings?

chevron-down

Conductivity of ions in water depends upon temperature. There are a number of factors that cause this effect, but a major one is simply that the ions naturally move around faster as they get warmer. When the same numbers of ions are moving faster, the apparent conductivity is increased. The relationship between conductivity and temperature is complicated and dependent on the solution being tested.

Pure water responds fairly linearly with temperature, with its conductivity rising by 4.55% for every degree centigrade (2.5% per degree Fahrenheit). Sodium chloride solutions have a smaller change, about 2.12% per degree centigrade. Tap and other natural waters have many different ions in them, and such systems sometimes respond nonlinearly with temperature changes, but not typically to as great of an extent as does pure water.

For this reason, nearly all conductivity meters simultaneously measure the conductivity and the temperature.”

How can I assure I get accurate TDS readings?

chevron-down

“Refer to your TDS device manual for detailed instructions and remember that TDS meters can vary. Shake:
Always make sure to shake excess water off the meter before dipping it into a water sample, even if it’s the same water.

Stir/tap:
After dipping the meter in the water, always lightly tap it against the side and stir the meter to remove any lingering air bubbles or electrical charges.

Positioning:
When taking the reading, always make sure to hold the meter straight up without it touching the sides or bottom of the glass/beaker/cup. The probes should be suspended as close to the center of the water sample as possible.

Time:
The longer the meter is in the water, the more accurate the reading will be.

Temperature:
25 degrees Celsius is the ideal temperature for conductivity readings, even if the meter has ATC.

Rinse:
If switching between very low and very high ppm water, always rinse the probes with distilled water to avoid any build-up.”

How accurate are TDS readers?

chevron-down

TDS meters are pretty accurate at showing the total dissolved solids in tap water, but they will not specify exactly what those solids are. To find out what is in your tap water you’d have to use a much more expensive system or send samples to a testing laboratory.

What can a high TDS reading indicate?

chevron-down

High TDS levels may reveal the possible presence of toxic substances such as lead, arsenic, nitrate and more nasty stuff. It can also lead to water tasting salty, bitter or metallic. And it indicates the water may be ‘hard’, containing high amounts of calcium and magnesium, which can discolor plates and glasses as well as cause damage to dishwashers, washing machines and coffee makers, for example.

What TDS level should tap water be ideally?

chevron-down

The lower the level, the better. TDS levels exceeding 1,000 mg/l is a general indication that the water is undrinkable. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests a limit of 500 mg/l, however. Water registering a TDS level of 0 – 50 can be considered pretty good.

How does the TDS meter work?

chevron-down

TDS is measured on a quantity scale, either in mg/liter or, more commonly, in parts per million (PPM). Simply put, if the TDS level is 1,000 mg/l or 1,000 PPM, it means that out of one-million parts of H20, 1,000 of those parts comprise something else.

What is TDS?

chevron-down

The simplest way to discover how contaminated your water may be is to use a special meter that measures ‘Total Dissolved Solids’ (TDS) such as salts, minerals and other stuff that can be harmful, including metals and chemicals. The lower the TDS, the ‘purer’ your water may be.
