I’ve been testing an Ovopur water filter from Aquaovo, a company based in Montreal. This filter is certainly the most attractive I’ve come across. My eye is often drawn to its porcelain ovoid shape sitting in my ktichen. I’ve come to think of it as a piece of art that also happens to filter water.The Ovopur operates as a drip filter — you pour water in the upper porcelain chamber, and it drips down through a filter into the lower chamber.
I enjoy drawing water from this object using the sturdy handle. The main water reservoir holds about 3 gallons (11 liters) – the water level is indicated by magnetic gauge on the side.
The filtration quality it is quite good — the filter incorporates KDF55, activated carbon, microporous bioceramics and quartz crystal.
The Ovopur is also priced like a piece of art, they go for around $850 and replacement filters cost about $160. Aquaovo recommends changing filter cartridges every 4 months to prevent bacteria build up and pollutants overload of the filtration media.
See the Aquaovo for more details.
