Traditional methods of cleaning water, including treating water with chlorine prior adding it to the mains – generally resulting in an unpopular taste; other companies have improved taste for Point of Use coolers with disposable, plastic housed filters. 6 million of these plastic filters are thrown away every year. Resulting in over 1,000 tonnes of non-biodegradable plastic being sent to landfill.
The OASIS® green filter system is a patented reusable system. The only part that needs to be discarded is the biodegradable filter media — all of the other parts can be reused over and over again. This results in two main benefits:
- Filter replacement cost is far lower than with traditional plastic filters
- Minimal environmental impact
