Our filter is suitable for all YVE-BIO® filter systems, as well as similar or identical filters from other manufacturers (e.g. EVA filters).
High Density YVE-BIO® Ceramic Filter
The high-density ceramic works like a sieve that retains all substances larger than 0.2 micron (0.0002 mm). (For comparison: an average human hair is about 0.05 to 0.08 mm thick).
Due to its fine pore size (new ISO standard 12-2, valid since 1 March 2010) no bacteria can pass through. These have a size of 0.3 - 10 microns. The Austrian Institute of Technology was able to clearly prove the effectiveness of the ceramic filter in terms of impermeability to germs and bacteria: "The germs (CFB's), coliform bacteria, Escherichia coli and Enterococci present in the raw water were 100% removed or are no longer detectable in the filtered water". This provides effective protection against germs.
Millions of people around the world already use this filter. From water from puddles, rivers, ponds, etc. you can quickly and easily produce drinking water yourself, even in crisis situations. You are independent of the municipal water supply and can dispense with storing water supplies.
The filter should be replaced every 24 months. If it has discoloured due to the retained impurities, the water is filtered slowly. If necessary, clean it with a clean kitchen sponge and light scrubbing movements.

What do I do before the first use?
Soak the ceramic filter in a container of cold water until all air has escaped (preferably overnight). Then mount it in the upper tank of your water filter. The sealing ring must be inside the tank, the tank and the sealing rings must be dry. Tighten them firmly without overtightening them.
The ceramic filter has become discoloured. What can I do?
Depending on your needs, you can clean your ceramic filter upside down with cold water and a scouring pad.
How long does my ceramic filter last?
Since you can wash off the dirt again, it is sufficient to replace the ceramic filter about every two years.
Will hardness affect the performance of the Ceramic filter?
