The materials we use for the filter reinforce our commitment to sustainability, quality and durability.
A + B. The filter housing + the lever (filtered / unfiltered) are made of ABS and PC plastic, free of toxic such as BPA and phthalates, made of natural raw materials.
C. The casing is the part that covers the spare part (carbon block) and which has to be saved and reused every time we put in a new spare part. This part is also made of ABS and PC plastic, free of toxins like BPA and phthalates.
D. The refill (carbon block), the part that filters the water, is made of coconut shells (70%) that biodegrade into CO2 and water, and UHMW (30%) that is inert and stable and does not accumulate in marine life . We also use two small pieces of silicone to ensure that the carbon block remains in place thus ensuring maximum filtration efficiency. These decompose into amorphous silica, carbon dioxide, and water.
Filtration and contaminants
Filtration and contaminants
EcoPro uses in its spare parts an ultra-advanced microfiltration technology in 5 stages with activated carbon.
The activated carbon block, made from coconut shell, is capable of absorbing chemical, gaseous, metallic and organic elements thanks to its microscopic structure and its highly porous surface.
When tap water passes through the filter, pollutants are retained in the spherical particles of activated carbon such as lime, chlorine (responsible for the bad taste), microplastics, sand, rust and sediment, lead, mercury, salmonella, legionella, pesticides , herbicides, drug residues, nitrates and more than 100 substances.
The result is clean, filtered water, ready for consumption.
- Filtration speed: 4 l / min. or 15 seconds to fill a litre.
- Refill expiration: after 3 months from the first use
- Refill filtration capacity: up to 1200 litre (approx. 13 litres / day) for 3 months
- Carbon block density: 1-2 µm (microns)
- Filtered substances: +100
Water quality and filtration efficiency can only be guaranteed up to a usable capacity of 3 months.
Our quality parameters for filtering substances and pollutants exceed 95% in most cases (depending on the type of pollutant it can be higher, as in the case of chlorine filtering, with 99%).
If you use the refill beyond these 3 months, the efficiency of filtering contaminants such as pesticides and herbicides, VOCs and microplastics will no longer meet our quality parameters.
In addition to the aspects mentioned in relation to absorption and efficiency, you must bear in mind that activated carbon is a material of organic origin that can be a breeding ground for microorganisms, which over time can lead to the proliferation of bacteria.
This is a normal situation with organic materials like activated carbon, regardless of how much you use the filter.
We advise you that if you do not use the filter for a few days, let the water pass for 30 seconds before consuming it to clean the bacteria that may have accumulated.
- Use hot water only in the NO filtered position
- Avoid washing the filter with soap
- If you haven't used the filter in several days, let the filtered water run for 30 seconds
- Avoid exposing the filter to heat
- The old replacement should be discarded in the gray container because apart from being made of coconut shells (70%), it is also composed of other materials such as UHMW (30%) and silicone parts.

EcoPro frequently asked questions
How do I know if I will like the taste?
There are several causes of the bad taste of tap water. Water hardness, which is the concentrated amount of dissolved minerals like calcium or magnesium, is one of them. The higher the concentration of these elements, the greater the hardness.
Chlorine also has a direct effect on the bad taste of our tap water. Other causes can be excess calcium or potassium in the water.
Our filters eliminate these substances, so the water that will come out of our tap will be clean, transparent and with a good taste.
How can I know if my tap will be compatible?
Our filter is compatible with standard screw taps. Check if your tap model is compatible before buying.
The thread of our filter is F22, the most common measurement. If your tap has another size, you can also purchase a range of different adapters that will be compatible with your tap.
How do I use the manual reminder on the EcoPro?
The top of the filter is provided with a series of numbers (one per month of the year) and lines (one per week of the month). You can use these to mark when you last changed your filter. This will make it easier for you to remember when you need to change your filter (generally after 3 months). Enjoy uninterrupted filtered water with EcoPro!
Do I still need to change the filter every 3 months even if I don't use it that often?
The refill is made of carbon, a material of organic origin that can be a breeding ground for microorganisms, which over time can lead to the proliferation of bacteria. These bacteria accumulate behind the filter and can contaminate the water.
It is a normal situation with activated carbon filters, regardless of how many of you are at home, or whether the filter has not been used for a while.
What are the filters made from?
The materials we use in our filters reflect our commitment to sustainability, quality and durability. The cartridge housing is made of ABS and PC plastic, which is free of BPA and phthalates and is manufactured from natural raw materials. The carbon block found inside the cartridge housing and which filters your water is made of coconut shells (70%) — which biodegrade in CO2 and water — and UHMW (30%) — which is inert and stable and doesn’t accumulate in marine life. Our product also contains two small silicone parts that hold the carbon block in place to ensure maximum filter efficiency. These parts decompose in amorphous silica, carbon dioxide and water.
How do I dispose of the cartridges?
Our filters are not biodegradable or compostable. However, they are made of highly recyclable plastic and other materials that remain inert in nature and do not bioaccumulate. Click here to see how to dispose your filter cartridge to recycle it and help to preserve the environment.
