What is the (electrical) conductance of water after the filter?
Such and similar questions always reach us about our MMS Water filter. According to the current state of knowledge, the ppm value or conductivity does NOT play a role in the assessment of drinking water quality. Also not in the alternative range. These ppm conductivity measuring instruments are unfortunately often used as marketing instruments by some salesmen (mostly for reverse osmosis systems). However, this is an inadmissible simplification. One measures thereby only the number of ionized particles in the water, but not how much of which. Whether harmless sodium, calcium, magnesium or e.g. toxic arsenic, lead or uranium makes a difference for the body. Even a small pinch of common salt in a glass of water increases the conductance value significantly. Is your table salt now toxic or dangerous to health?
Conclusion: By measuring the electrical conductance, the quality of the drinking water or the filter cannot be inferred!
For this reason, we do not provide any information on conductivity.
Our MMS-Water filter does NOT or only minimally change the conductivity of the filtered water!
By the way: In the worldwide very strict German Drinking Water Ordinance (TrinkwV), the electrical conductance is only mentioned in connection with the corrosion of the pipes. If the mineral content is too high, a current can flow between noble and base metals in the pipes and cause them to rust.
pH value of the water
The pH value indicates the concentration of free hydrogen ions in an aqueous solution. The measuring scale of the pH-value ranges from 1 to 14, whereby all values below 7 are always more acidic and all values above 7 are always more alkaline, 7 is considered neutral. Drinking water normally has a neutral (7) to slightly alkaline pH value (8.5). The German Drinking Water Ordinance specifies a pH value between 6.5 and 9.5 as a guideline value.
Our water filter does NOT change the pH value of the filtered water!
Influence of the pH-value on the human body
Our body needs a precisely balanced interplay of acids and bases to effectively control all metabolic processes. Unfortunately the modern diet is very pH-acidic (e.g. the pH-value of cola is 2-3). The approach to drink alkaline water probably originally came from Japan/Korea, where Kangan water was invented and used to treat diseases. However, this should be seen as a temporary therapy and not as everyday drinking water. In addition, it should only be drunk at certain times. Basic water at the main meals would neutralize the stomach acid, which is important for our immune system, and would also weaken digestion. There are therefore better ways to deacidify acid, such as using breathing techniques, alkaline baths and the right diet than drinking alkaline water day and night. Some known healing springs may have slightly alkaline water, but life with all its variety has spread successfully not only around these healing springs, but everywhere. The fact is that nature does not have such great extremes with its drinking springs, but water close to the neutral pH value often occurs in nature. Humans, animals and plants have been using it for centuries. For this reason, the solution for everyday needs is more likely to be found here.
Minerals in drinking water
This topic always arises in comparison with reverse osmosis systems. Reverse osmosis is a physical process from space travel for the production of chemically pure H2O, in which the natural osmosis process is reversed with pressure. Technically pure H20 is not the same as good drinking water! This process and the chemically purest H20 produced from it do not occur in nature. Purest H2O is rather pH-acidic and reacts chemically very aggressively. In nature, water evaporates over the sea, lakes and rivers and when it cools and condenses again, it falls to the earth as rain or dew. This water would still be rather poor in minerals. But most people, animals and plants do not quench their thirst directly from rainwater. But as soon as water hits the earth again, goes into the groundwater and partly flows out of a spring again after many years, it is again clearly enriched with minerals such as calcium, magnesium and sodium. This water is now pH-neutral and chemically no longer aggressive and therefore biocompatible for us. Many reverse osmosis plants almost completely remove all these good minerals. The drastic reduction of the above mentioned electrical conductivity is mostly exactly due to this. Then one had determined that so strongly demineralized water does not get most humans so well. Many welfare practical men, in addition, sensitive humans speak actually of dead water after such a procedure. Therefore, modern reverse osmosis systems have a so-called remineralisation stage at the end of the purification chain. But if this were to actually work, one would have almost the same conductance values as before filtering. Either remineralization doesn't work or the conductance hasn't been reduced as much as advertised.
Our water filter does NOT change the mineral content of the filtered water!
Structure of the water
According to the latest alternative findings, the structure of water is more important for living beings than the conductance, pH value and minerals. Through our second filter stage of the ultra-fine carbon filter, the water has to meander very quickly and through many micro turbulences, just like in nature. This seems to vitalize the water, energize it and erase old information. These properties have been independently confirmed to us by various alternative working bodies.
Installing filters standing up or lying down?
Usually the supplied hoses are long enough, so that after the installation of the filter into the cold water line the filter can stand upright. We recommend that the filter be placed upright for at least the first 5 minutes of the flushing process. This way the unevenly distributed mineral mix of the first filter stage can be distributed more evenly around the carbon block. The filter can then also be permanently installed in a horizontal position.
Can the filter also be connected to low-pressure lines?
Unfortunately no! Our MMS Water filter needs the usual house water pressure for proper operation.
Can the filter also be connected to the hot water supply?
No! Our MMS Water filter is only designed for connection to cold water.
Can the filter also be connected before the entire house supply?
Unfortunately no" Our MMS Water filter is designed to be connected directly to the end of a cold water point. Such house filters are many times larger and more expensive.
Can the filter also be connected to a private well?
Unfortunately no! Our MMS Water Filter is designed to be connected to a municipal water supply. On the one hand, a private well can have considerable amounts of suspended particles, which our 0.1 micron fine third filter stage would set very quickly. On the other hand many private wells nowadays have extremely high contamination with nitrate, artificial fertilizers and pesticides. Unfortunately, more elaborate and more expensive methods for drinking water treatment are necessary here.
We have other connections in our country. How can I connect the filter anyway?
There are e.g. adapters from 3/8" to 1/2" in DIY stores. With these, our MMS Water filter can also be operated in your country.
My filter has already clogged after a few months and the throughput has been significantly reduced. Is my filter broken?
Our MMS Water filter has one of the finest pore sizes of 0.1 microns on the market. If the filter gets clogged very quickly, then you have an unusually large number of floating parts in your water supply. This can have happened once e.g. by a larger building site in your street or is with you permanently so. In these cases it often makes sense to have a 5 micron prefilter placed in front of the entire house supply. Ask your plumber. In this case our MMS Water filter worked normally and protected you from this dirt. The replacement cartridge must be replaced prematurely in these cases.
I am going on holiday for 4 weeks. Does this damage my filter?
No, you can enjoy your holiday! In our MMS Water filter several germ stop techniques are used, so that also a use break of 1-2 months can be bridged safely. Nevertheless, we would let the stale water flow out for 1-2 minutes after a longer break during the first use.
Taste of drinking water
By the way, the human body recognizes very well by its taste what is good for it and what is not. Rotten foods are quickly recognized and rejected by their taste and smell. What is good for us, on the other hand, tastes particularly good to us as a rule. You want to drink the next glass right away. Our filtered water regularly gets top marks for its pure and fresh taste. Please also read the honest Trusted Shops experience reports of our satisfied customers on the product page. The extremely well-known Swiss water specialist Urs Surbeck only recommends our MMS Water Filter. Without much advertising, our filter has very quickly developed from a secret tip to a bestseller.
