KOHLER Clarity is a gravity-fed water filtration system designed to provide people with safe water when the safety of their source water is uncertain. Addressing the demand both for clean water and quality products, KOHLER Clarity fills an important need to increase access to desirable solutions for safe drinking water worldwide.
The KOHLER Clarity is designed and tested to meet WHO standards, treating biological pathogens: bacteria, viruses, protozoan cysts, and chlorine. It reduces some heavy metals, including lead, but not to the EPA requirements for the life of the cartridge. It is not designed to treat chemical contaminants. You will get approximately 3 litres of water per hour under constant head pressure. The flow rate may vary based on the head pressure, quality of the water and the age of the filter.
The water filters are made with electroabsorption media, this charged media attracts pathogens and inorganic contaminants like a magnet. As dirty water flows through the filter, ion exchange permanently attaches contaminants (e.g., virus, protozoa, bacteria, chlorine) to the filter media. Activated carbon adsorbs chlorine, flavours and odours. Once filtered, the water is safe and ready to enjoy.
The life span of the filtration cartridge varies with the quality of source water used in the system and the frequency of use (the more contaminated the water, the shorter the life). The estimated filter life is 1,500 litres. Assuming a family of 4 uses 3 litres per person per day, the life is approximately 4 months. The water filter should only be cleaned by running filtered water over the cartridge. Cleaning the filter is likely to extend the life of the filter by only a few days. In general, when your filter becomes clogged and is no longer able to filter water, it is time to install a replacement cartridge. The filtration system should not be used to treat water sources that are cloudy (turbid) or contain chemical contaminants, industrial contaminants or heavy metals.
