General Ecology filters use a three-step process
The Seagull IV and the Nature Pure filters from General Ecology are among the hundreds of products that will be shown by Midland Chandlers at Crick Boat Show.
Being able to drink clean water on board is important for anyone - not everyone wants to drink from canal side taps and hoses or water that has been left for long periods in tanks.
The General Ecology filters provide an alternative to treating water with tablets or solutions – while other methods may kill any bacteria that may be lurking, they can leave a taste to the water.
“The filters use General Ecology’s environmentally friendly, three-step ‘structured matrix’ technology to provide bottled water quality in a fresh water system” explained Midland Chandlers’ technical sales manager Kevin Spratt. “No chemicals or electricity are needed. The filters are virtually maintenance-free and work from a pressurised water system.”
The first step involves water passing through a filter to remove bacteria, pathogenic cysts, parasites and other debris down to 0.1 microns.
In the second step, specific organic and other chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides and solvents together with chlorine and other trace contaminants that can be toxic are removed.
Lastly an electrostatic removal process removes any minute particles, molecules and colloids that may be suspended in the water.
The filters are suitable for high-volume usage on larger and live-aboard boats.
Also on Midland Chandlers’ stand will be a range of cleaning and maintenance products from Star brite, a brand the wholesaler has recently taken on.
Among the products available are cleaners for fabrics, plastic, metal, bilge, vinyl and teak, along with dehumidifiers, polishes and waxes.
Midland Chandlers will also have representatives from many of its other brands at the show to assist with enquiries and orders.
