Questions and answers

Why a drinking water filter at all?

Why filter water (again)? Doesn't the waterworks do that? Sure! Most consumers get their tap water from a drinking water supplier, where it was previously cleaned and treated in the waterworks.

So what are the reasons for a drinking water filter? The most important ones are:

  • Your drinking water is polluted by taste-disturbing, organic substances that have not been purified by the waterworks.
  • Your water is contaminated by substances that are not covered by the drinking water ordinance - e.g. pharmaceutical, pesticide, microplastic residues, etc.
  • It is polluted by heavy metals such as lead or copper from old water pipes. 
  • The ingredients in tap water are not 100% "clear".

Drinking water deficiencies also in Germany! Despite regulation?

Our tap water in Germany is strictly controlled, but the reality sometimes shows serious deficiencies. The quality is based on limit values for currently 56 pollutants that have been set in the Drinking Water Ordinance.

Our point of view: Many substance concentrations such as drug residues, hormones, microplastics and pesticides etc. are not covered by the drinking water ordinance !

Because drinking water treatment is always a (political) compromise between technical possibilities, costs and compatibility. In addition, many cities have an aging, dilapidated drinking water network - for example, in Aachen at the beginning of 2021.

How long can I use the Alb drinking water filter?

Every drinking water filter requires a replacement of the cartridge at certain intervals. We recommend changing the cartridge after a maximum of 4 or 6 months - depending on the cartridge used.

Bioplastic. With Alb filters we focus on environmental protection and local production. For the replacement cartridges Active and Active Plus+, we use the bio raw material lignin , which is a waste product in the paper industry, for the mounting caps.

Filter change recommendation every 4 to 6 months

Will valuable minerals be preserved?

The Alb filter works according to the principle: vital minerals should be preserved in the water. This is a very big advantage compared to other filter systems such as reverse osmosis ("osmosis water").

Our cartridges leave essential trace elements and minerals in the water and do not filter them out.
