Are you fed up with bacteria and pollutants in your drinking water? If you agree, you’ve come to the correct place.
Despite being filtered and chlorinated, drinkable water might contain contaminants. Heavy metals, smells, and grime are all present when it reaches your tap. This occurs as a result of water traveling through worn-out and unmaintained plumbing systems.
Most of us choose bottled water to avoid drinking contaminated water. However, it has a significant disadvantage: it generates a large amount of plastic garbage each year. Furthermore, there is much debate about the presence of microplastics, BPA, and other contaminants in bottled water.
Every household requires clean drinking water for daily use. Though a whole-house water filter is usually the best solution, it isn’t necessarily the most cost-effective, space-saving, or easy-to-maintain option. Fortunately, there are a plethora of options on the market, many of which have reasonable costs and practical designs.
The Nakii filter incorporates Japanese Activated Carbon Technology, which has been shown to outperform conventional carbon filters by 10-12 times. It was originally intended for military and medical purposes, and it eliminates the undesirable colour and odour by reducing 97 percent of chlorine, mercury, rust, silt, and suspended particles. It also aids in the reduction of limescale and water hardness. The Nakii filter’s FSLP (Fully Stable Lifetime Performance) technology provides for superior impurity adsorption and removal than other carbon filters.
This Nakii water filter review will examine the water filter and its functions.
Nakii Water Filter Review
The Nakii filter has the following features: effective removal of chlorine and mercury at the maximum rate. The Nakii filter is the first of its kind in the US to use the most recent innovation in water filtration, which is the Activated Carbon Fibre (ACF). ACF has a huge adsorptive capacity and removes 98 percent of chlorine and mercury from your water, the highest percentage rate on the market.
It removes undesirable colour and limescale while reducing lead, rust, silt, and suspended particles. WQA has 3rd party certified the Nakii water filtration pitcher to NSF/ANSI standard 42 which can be reviewed online.
You should have knowledge that NSF/ANSI 42 stands for National Sanitation Foundation/American National Standards Institute 42. This NSF standard is intended to limit the presence of particular aesthetic or non-health-related pollutants (such as chlorine, taste and odour, and particles) in public and private drinking water. Heavy metals such as lead and chromium are not tested under this standard (NSF 53). It is not capable of detecting trace medications such as hormones and oestrogen (NSF 401).
The Nakii portable water filter is compact enough to fit through most refrigerator doors. It filters out 97 percent of mercury, chlorine, and other toxins at a constant flow rate. The pitcher has a quick flow rate and fits nicely in tiny refrigerators and on countertops, despite its size when compared to other water pitcher filters.
Mercury, chlorine, rust, and sediment are all removed from your water by the Nakii water filter. It’s worth noting that any water pitcher filter works best with city water as opposed to well water. The Nakii filter isn’t any different. In addition, this filter decreases lead by 50%. However, the fluoride is not filtered.
Long lasting and durable: With a capacity of upto 150 gallons, more than 4 times compared to its competitors, gives the nakii filter an edge in the market.
High quality materials: The Nakii pitcher filter is made of high-quality materials that manage water impurities at a far greater level than any other brand on the market
Advanced filtration technology: The Nakii filter is the first in the United States to use the most recent innovation in water filtration, Activated Carbon Fibre (ACF), which isn’t found in other filters or other brands.
Effectively removes impurities: ACF features 98 percent chlorine, mercury removal, taste and odour, the highest rate in the market to reduce lead, rust, sediment and suspended particles, and eliminates unpleasant colour and lime-scale.
Tested and certified by WQA: The WQA is regularly testing and certifying the Nakii filter pitcher for its ability to fulfil the NSF/ANSI standard for High-Quality Filtration, a Life Span of 150 gallons, and a Fast Flow Rate of 1.3 litres per minute. This will provide you and your family with the cleanest and clearest filtered water possible.
Compact design: The Nakii filter is evaluated for its flow rate by the WQA to assure strong filtration performance even with its fast flow, setting it apart from other counterparts on the market. Its compact design and form allows it to blend in seamlessly the door to your refrigerator
Health promoting components: By providing a filter for healthier water, Nakii manufacturers place a premium on the healthiness of the materials used in the product, which is why we only use BPA-free and approved materials that meet the NSF-372 standard, which has been tested and approved by the Water Quality Association.
Testing & Review
The all-plastic water pitcher with filter housing, one filter, and operation instructions will be included in your order. The box features a Water Quality Association accreditation sticker (WQA). The material has been confirmed as BPA-free by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The unit is 11.4″ x 8.5″ x 4.3″ in size and weighs little under two pounds. The pitcher is a medium size, holding up to 7.5 glasses of drinking water (about 1.8 litres). Any factory defect is covered by a 120-day warranty on this filter unit.
At a time, the Nakii water filter system can produce 1.8 litres (7.5 cups) of water. Before it needs to be replaced, the filter lasts 150 gallons (about four months). Considering that most pitcher filters only generate 40 gallons of filtered water, Nakii’s claim of 150 gallons is exceptional value for money.
Because the filter has a fast filtering rate, you won’t have to wait long for a full pitcher. Filling the pitcher to the maximum 7.5 cup capacity takes only a minute. Japanese filtration technology is a step ahead of the majority of filters on the market today.
For rapid, effective filtration, this Nakii water filter incorporates Activated Carbon Fibre (ACF) in its filters. The water passes through the single filtration system and fills the pitcher in under a minute. Despite the speed, you get great-tasting water that is free of the odours that come with chlorinated tap water.
In my personal experience, my area’s water has such high chlorine levels that I can smell it from many feet away when I turn on the tap. Or, in the case of laundry, the chlorine overpowers the fabric softener scent. It also features a really attractive, compact and sleek design and it also fully removes more contaminants. The filtration is quick, and you can refill it without removing the top because it has a blowhole that you can depress to let water in. The upper chamber, which retains the unfiltered water, can only hold 2-3 cups at a time, but since it’s portable, it’s fine.
It doesn’t take long to refill it and filter more because it works so quickly. This may be inconvenient for larger houses with numerous people using the pitcher, as the pitcher is somewhat small and must be refilled if you pour more than two glasses. However, the speed compensates for it. The Nakii water filter is small enough to fit on a refrigerator door shelf and light enough to effortlessly pull in and out of the fridge.
Overall, the Nakii filter works pretty quickly as compared to similar products in the market. Filtering your water and filling the pitcher might take up to 15 minutes in most pitchers. Because of the activated carbon filter, this filter completes the task in 60 seconds.
Another advantage is that the filter’s components, such as the lid and filter holder, may be disassembled for easy cleaning. The sediment in tap water can accumulate in the higher portions of your filter over time. It is easy to clean and maintain the unit because it can be disassembled. The lid’s design allows you to fill the pitcher without taking it off. It also has an easy-pour spout that reduces splashes and spills.
