Even fits in the door of the refrigerator!

It not only fits in the door of the refrigerator, it does exactly what the larger models do: In addition to limescale, the Lotus Vita One water filter also reliably reduces pollutants such as heavy metals or pesticides from tap water.

Which pollutants are filtered out of the tap water?
The multi-level Lotus-Vita filter system consists of 4 phases. In the first three phases lime, pollutants such as heavy metals, drug residues or pesticides are filtered out of the tap water using high-performance activated carbon and ion exchangers. Among others, the following substances are filtered out:
- Pesticides such as atrazine or hexazinone, each at 99.9 %
- Painkillers such as ibuprofen or diclofenac at 99.9 %
- Heavy metals such as lead at 96.9 %, copper at 99.3 %, mercury at 99.3 % or nickel at 97.7 %
- Hormone-containing drugs such as the contraceptive pill or antibiotics at 64.2 %

How does the filtered water taste?
The tap water filtered with the Lotus Vita water filter tastes fantastically soft. This is achieved by the fourth phase of the Lotus Vita water filtration system: the water is remineralized with the help of bio-active ceramics (including magnesium, calcium, tourmaline, quartz sand and effective microorganisms). This shifts the pH level of the water to slightly alkaline, which leads to the soft taste experience.

First use of the Lotus Vita water filter
