How Does The SkyHydrant Work?

The ultrafiltration (UF) membrane, consisting of thousands of microporous hollow fibres, removes harmful bacteria, micro-organisms, dirt and other contaminating particles.
No chemicals, coagulants, pumps or energy are required for the filtration process - the system operates under gravity with a minimum head pressure of 1 metre.
Cleaning process is simple and manual. Drain down concentrate is completely organic.
