Each alkaline filter cartridge will last for approximately 8 weeks (350+ litres of filtered water) before requiring replacement. If there are high levels of hardness, the cartridges may need to be replaced more frequently.
Q: What's the difference between the Biocera Alkaline Jug Filter cartridges and ordinary jug filter cartridges?
A: Ordinary filter cartridges are designed to remove pollutants such as chlorine, dissolved organic contaminants, heavy metals and hardness from the water. However, they typically leave the water acidic after filtering. The Biocera Alkaline Jug Filter removes chlorine and dissolved organic contaminants, while the special minerals in the cartridge alkalise and ionise the water.
Q: What change in pH can I typically expect?
A: If you are putting tap water into your alkaline jug with a pH of 7.5 (which is common for many areas of the country), then the pH of the filtered water will typically be in the range of 8.5 to 9.5. This is an ideal pH range to be drinking on a daily basis.
Q: How frequently do I need to change the filter cartridge?
A: We would recommend that for average family use, the filter cartridge be changed every 8 weeks. You can set the date on the dial at the top of the jug when you install a new cartridge. Normal jug filter cartridges require changing every 4 weeks, due to the possibility of harmful bacteria growing in the filter media. The filter media in the Biocera Alkaline Jug Filter are antibacterial, thereby preventing harmful bacterial growth and extending the lifetime of the cartridge. Hence they can be changed less frequently than ordinary filter cartridges.
Q: What safety standards do the Biocera minerals comply with?
A: Biocera have received certification from NSF, the international certification body involved in safety standards, for their bioceramic filter media. To our knowledge they are the only company to have received this certification for their bioceramic minerals.
Q: Do the Biocera Alkaline Jug Filter cartridges fit other jugs?
A: The Biocera Jug Filter cartridges will fit most jug filters that take the round-type filter cartridges commonly sold in supermarkets.
Q: What is the Biocera Alkaline Jug made from?
A: The Biocera Alkaline Jug is manufactured from plastics where the resins used are BPA-free.
Q: Can I produce alkaline ionised water on tap similar to the water from the Biocera Alkaline Jug Filter?
A: Yes, it is now possible to enjoy similar quality water ‘on tap’ using the Energy Plus Water Filter. The Energy Plus inline system is a four-stage filtration system which uses Biocera bioceramic minerals to alkalise and ionise the water. Further details can be found here.

Each alkaline filter cartridge will last for approximately 350+ litres of filtered water before requiring replacement. Typically 2 months of average use. The filtered water can be used for hot and cold drinks, for cooking and for washing vegetables and fruit.
The Biocera Alkaline Jug is now an extremely effective way for everyone to enjoy the benefits of drinking filtered alkaline water.
The Biocera Alkaline Jug Filter is similar in appearance to most commonly used jug filters, but in operation it is entirely different.
If you filter tap water through an ordinary jug filter, the water after filtration will typically have a pH of 5.5 (acidic). They are designed to filter out dissolved contaminants and remove hardness.
When you filter the water through the alkaline jug filter, however, the pH will typically be in the order of 9.0 to 9.5 (alkaline). The Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) of the water will also be beneficially changed.
With tap water in the UK, that is usually in the order of 150 to 300mV (with little change after ordinary filtration).
After passing through the alkaline jug filter, this typically changes to between -100mV and -200mV, which is what gives the water antioxidant properties.
We believe that drinking alkaline water, such as provided by the Biocera Alkaline Jug, is probably the simplest thing we can all do to achieve better levels of wellness.
Now with the alkaline jug filter it's possible for everyone to have the convenience and health benefits of alkaline water. We introduced the Biocera Alkaline Jug to the UK in 2009, and since then we have received plenty of positive feedback from our customers.
