Domestic Water Filters

At Germ Africa we sell Domestic water filters in addition to our wide range of industrial water filters. Our primary product offering for house and home is from the Doulton range of filter cartridges.

Doulton Water Filter cartridges
A rich history in filters for your home and business

We also provide our own range of filter cartridges under the banner Flowrite.

Flowrite – locally made and imported filters

Doulton

In 19th Century England, the River Thames was London s main water supply and sewer. Henry Doulton discovered that filtering water through a porous ceramic could stop people becoming sick from cholera and other water-borne diseases. This was a revolution in water treatment.

Fast forward 175 years and the ceramic filtration technology has advanced a long way, but the principles of our ceramic filters remain the same – providing safe, healthy, great-tasting drinking water wherever and whenever you need it. From a mud hut in Uganda to an office block in Utah, Doulton filters are working round-the-clock to provide millions of people with water they can enjoy and trust.

Doulton Stainless Steel – Counter top filter housing

Doulton® filters offer you bottled water quality on tap 24 hours a day. Our unique ceramic filtration technology produces drinking water of unrivalled quality. All of our filter grades have been microbiologically tested. Most grades also remove chlorine and improve the taste and odour of the water, while others use lead absorbtive media to take out toxic lead specifically and other heavy metals.

Flowrite

Our Flowrite range of filters offer affordable filtration at a level of quality again to ensure your continued peace of mind.

We continually add to our range of filtration related products and also keep a standard stock of your common components like filter cartridges, filter housings and activated carbon filter cartridges.

Resin Bonded filter cartridges

Resin Bonded filter cartridges are manufactured in South Africa to the highest international standards. They are produced using Polyester fibres of controlled diameter which are bonded together by a proprietary process using a phenolic resin.

The process used ensures that the filtration pores between the fibres are more open near the outer surface of the cartridge, and become progressively smaller towards the core of the cartridge. This graded density construction enables the cartridge to trap coarser particles near it’s outer surface, while finer particles are trapped nearer the core.

This provides the exceptionally good particle removal efficiency which is the outstanding feature of the “RRB” cartridge. In addition, the rigid construction also ensures that the cartridge will not deform under high operating pressure differentials.

This means that the Resin Bonded filter cartridges exhibit a consistent and unvarying micron rating throughout it’s life, and does not suffer from the deteriorating filtration efficiency and dirt unloading which occurs on cartridges of softer construction.

The use of grooves greatly increases the cartridge surface area, thereby extending even further, the Resin Bonded filter cartridges already superior service life.
