BACTERIAL REMOVAL

Originally founded in 1978, Triflow Concepts are the experts in point-of-use water filtration systems. Our exclusive mains water systems give you hot water, cold water and filtered water through the same taps. We use survival-grade Katadyn tap filters and a custom spout system to avoid cross-contamination once the water has been filtered.

Healthy water at home

As well as removing all harmful bacteria, microorganisms, viruses and chemicals, Triflow Filter Tap Systems allow you to retain all the important minerals, including magnesium, calcium and fluoride. Filtering your tap water in this way provides healthy water without the environmental impact of bottled water.

The Triflow Filter Tap Systems use the world's most advanced filter catridges which are manufactured in Switzerland by the Katadyn Group, a world-leader in water safety products for military, industrial and travel markets. The systems that we have developed with these tap filters are constantly tested to ensure they meet the strictest safety requirements. You can choose from a range of aesthetically pleasing, innovative designs for taps and filter housing to suit your needs, and we are able to supply all spare parts from our manufacturing base in the West Midlands. We also have a range of electronic taps for you to choose from.

Triflow is regularly, independently tested to confirm bacteria removal:

What types of bacteria can be found in your tap water?

All the Triflow water systems filters out and removes more than 99.99% of pathogenic bacteria, as well as other microorganisms such as protozoa and viruses. Bacteria that can be found in UK water include Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E. coli, M. Avium paratuberculosis (MAP), and salmonella. These bacteria enter the water system through human and animal waste and other forms of cross-contamination.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a pathogen which can form biofilms that encourage the growth of more dangerous bacteria such as coliform organisms including E. coli. The presence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in drinking water can cause problems with colour, taste and odour and it can be difficult to remove from man-made water systems.

E. coli is a bacterium that lives in the digestive tracts of humans and other animals and certain strains can cause bloody diarrhea and other life-threatening symptoms. There have been E.coli outbreaks in the public drinking water systems in recent years, including contagious E. coli O157, which produces severe gastroenteritis.

M. Avium paratuberculosis (MAP), a cousin of the tuberculosis bacteria, originates in farm animals and is believed by some to cause Crohn's disease, a painful human gut disorder, and thought to originate in contaminated tap water. MAP, like the other common bacteria, can be removed by adequate water filtration systems.

How the Triflow filter tap systems work

Triflow systems use Katadyn filters which were developed by Swiss engineers for outdoor use on untreated water. They incorporate a four-stage filtration process. The outer shell of the filter is made from microporous ceramic which filters out pathogenic bacteria and protozoan cysts. The ceramic is impregnated with bacteriostatic silver during the manufacturing process. Silver is a bactericide which will prevent the reproduction of the bacteria. Within the core of the ceramic is activated carbon, which absorbs any organic particles. Finally, synthetic zeolite is used as a catalyst to remove any lead present in the water.

Since 1978, Triflow Concepts has been developing expertise in point-of-use water filtration systems. We are able to offer a range of innovative designs for you to incorporate state-of-the-art water filtration for surprisingly low prices.
