how it all works

Kusini Water Filter

The Filter
Fundamentals

The Filter removes 99.9999% of disease causing bacteria & parasites from any water source. The Filter is comprised of a mechanical nano-filter with an activated carbon block in the center.  That means it physically separates particles from your water by trapping them inside the membrane.

The Filter removes bacteria, e-coli, and any particle bigger than ~0.01 microns in diameter from water of any source. Because our filter uses a mechanical filtration process, the Filter remains safe throughout the entire life of the filter. 

Nano-Fibre Membrane

All our products use a nano-fiber membrane. These membranes have 0,01micron pores that trap contaminants on one side and release clean water on the other end. Our membrane uses the latest technology in membrane production with minimum chemicals.

What gets Filtered

E-coli, bacteria and things such as dissolved solids are bigger than the pores in our filter so they all get filtered. Clean Water is able to pass through, but contaminants larger than 0.01 microns remain trapped, leaving water clean and disease free.

Locally Sourced Material

Our products use two-stage filtration process; In addition to the nano-fiber membrane, an actived carbon block made from locally sourced macadamia nut shells is used to absorb chemicals like chlorine and pesticides.
