The Santevia Alkaline Gravity Water System restores your tap water to a clean, great-tasting, mineralized and alkalized state using the power of gravity instead of chemicals, artificial materials, water pressure or electricity. Every drop drips slowly through the complex 8-stage system of natural filters, which cleans and infuses your water with earth-derived minerals.
The result: great tasting, mineralized alkaline water that helps your body stay pH-balanced, healthy and hydrated.
8-Stage Filtration Process
Stage 1: Ceramic Pre-Filter
Constructed from highly compressed and fired diatomaceous earth with a pore size of 0.3 of a micron, this pre-filter removes rust, sediments, bacteria, germs and parasites.
Stage 2: Granular Activated Coconut Carbon
Highly porous coconut carbon charcoal offers an astounding 65 acres of purifying surface area. It filters chlorine, herbicides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, industrial chemicals, trihalomethanes (THMs), heavy metals, organic chemicals, odour, taste, colour and particulates. This stage also contains a KDF filter medium that inhibits the growth of bacteria in the filter and neutralizes heavy metals. Magnesium granules improve the Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP).
Stage 3: Volcanic Mineral Zeolite
This stage inhibits bacteria and neutralizes heavy metals including lead, nickel, cadmium and mercury through an ion exchange process. It filters detergents, ammonium, certain radioactive ions, agricultural chemicals and other toxins.
Stage 4: Mineral Stone Infusion
Highly porous Maifan mineral stones infuse ionized minerals into the water that aid in oxygenation and alkalization.
Stage 5: pH Mineral Balls
Mineral ions encased in diatomaceous earth add calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals to fortify the water and increase the pH.
Stage 6: Energy Balls
Constructed from highly compressed and fired earth and mineral oxides, the energy balls assist with pH balancing and emit beneficial infrared energy into the water.
Stage 7: Mineral Stone Immersion
During this stage, mineral stones continuously release easily absorbed, ionized minerals into the water, including calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and other trace minerals.
Stage 8: Magnetic Energy
Embedded in the Santevia water spout, aligned magnets are suspended in the water, simulating the magnetism emitted by the earth’s core and the forces created as water flows over magnetic, mineral-rich rocks in nature. The magnetic energy breaks the water molecule clusters into smaller structures for greater bio-availability and maximum absorption.

I have had my machine for almost 8 years! It is still going strong. I replaced the tap twice (thank you, Finlandia!) once because I let water sit in it while on vacation and it went black and second because I cleaned the machine and lost a part!!
This machine is fantastic and gives me great quality water that is actually slightly alkaline and filled with minerals (unlike some of the pitchers out there claiming to give you alkaline, balanced water).
