In the past we talked about the benefits and advantages of using Doulton Ceramic Water Filters as a portable, chemical-free means of treating source water that may contain unwanted bacteria. Today we would like to draw your attention to an undersink ceramic filter system manufactured by Crystal Quest.

Ceramic filters and well water?

What makes a ceramic filtration system good for well water applications? Quite simply, the fine level of filtration offered by ceramic filters does an excellent job of filtering out unwanted (and potentially harmful) harmful bacteria such as E.Coli, fecal coliform, Salmonella and Streptococcus. They also do a great job of filtering out cysts such as cryptosporidium and giardia.

Many well owners do not use a disinfection system on their well water and the Crystal Quest Undersink Ceramic Water Filter System has the ability to protect users of well water from unexpected bacterial contamination.

Additionally, and not necessarily a major selling point for most people, ceramic filter systems such as the Crystal Quest Undersink Ceramic Water Filter System also filters sediment down to the 0.5 micron size.

Testing for bacteria in well water?

For rapid on-site bacteria in well water testing we suggest taking a look at a Presence/Absence Test Kit for Coliform Bacteria. User can get positive/negative test results in as few as 24 hours and have the option of confirming whether or not the sample contains E.Coli specifically.
