AlkaViva Jupiter BioStone Plus Filter
The Essential Filter for Your Jupiter Science Ionizer
Biostone 0.1Micron Filter - the most popular filter used in Jupiter Science ionizers. This filter will fit all recent Jupiter models including:
Jupiter Delphi model number: IO400U
Jupiter Athena model number: JS205 (Filter Compartment 2, for Filter Compartment 1 you need the Athena Sediment Filter)
Jupiter Melody model number: JP104
Jupiter Venus model number: JP107
Jupiter Orion model number: JP109
Jupiter Neptune /Microlite Mavello model number: JP101
This filter will NOT fit older Jupiter models including the following (if you have any of the units listed below you will need the Biostone M.T. Filter):
Jupiter Technos model number: JM901
Jupiter Ultra Technos model number: JT801
Jupiter Masterpeice model number: JA701
Jupiter Aqua Tonic
Jupiter Regency 2
Why Is the Biostone a world leading filtration media?
The Biostone has nine separate stages of filtration. To give you an idea of how fine these filters are - there is over 25,000 microns in one inch meaning there 250,000 0.1 microns in one inch. That's pretty fine to say the least!
The primary filtering media is Granulated Activated Carbon, which is highly effective at removing contaminants from water in a tightly packed structure. The Biostone Filter also includes four fibre layers which provide extra filtration in between different layers of carbon filtration.
How do I know when my filter needs to be replaced?
All the latest Jupiter / Emco Tech ionizers have a digital readout that shows how long before you need to change your filter. A filter typically lasts a family of four between 8 to 9 months and gives a good 1000+ gallons of water. We recommend changing the filter at least once every 12 months to ensure quality performance.
How Long Will My Filter Last?
How often you change your filter will depend on the quality of your water and the amount of water you are using each day on average. A filter typically lasts a family of four between 8 to 9 months and gives a good 1000+ gallons of water. We recommend changing the filter at least once every 12 months to ensure quality performance.
If you smell or taste chlorine in your water after it passes through your ionizer you should change your filter. In some city water supplies the amount of chlorine and other sterilisation chemicals now used is at higher levels than before due to increases in contaminants. Also if you notice that the flow rate through your filter has decreased to a slow rate then it is probably because it is full of particles and now needs replacement.

* Recently the Biostone filter was updated with some changes to it's filtration method. As a result some of the filtration layers have been removed in place of more carbon layers. This decision was made as the past design proved to be no more effective than the updated version, yet it gave the resulting water a slightly worse taste.
