How it works

Thirsty Nomad 1 Micron Absolute Activated Media. NSF50 & NSF61 Certified. Self Sterilising Surface.
Before we go through each stage, please understand – this caravan water purifier is a highly engineered and sophisticated purifier and is designed to treat clear water inline into a dedicated cold water drinking water line under your sink to a dedicated drinking water tap. PLEASE do not run dirty water through our purifier and PLEASE USE OUR PRE-FILTER TO FILL YOUR TANKS. Our purifier is not designed to treat every drop of water in your shower and in your bathroom vanity – this will expend the 7,500 litre life of our purifier very quickly.  
The Thirsty Nomad purifier is a dedicated drinking water purifier to keep you safe and free from illness for use in your drinking and cooking water.  Our purifier has not been designed for tank fill use, we have a dedicated 1 micron and bore water pre-filter that is ideally suited to fill tanks to pre-treat the water before going through our highly engineered water purifier. 
    1. 5 micron Activated Carbon Fiber Block 
      Activated Carbon is an adsorbent that is 10x more absorbent than traditional activated carbon. 
    2. 1 micron Activated Filter Media 
      Our Activated Filter Media is manufactured under ISO9001-2015 conditions and is certified under DWI EC Reg31, NSF50 & NSF61 for potable water use and HACCP certified for the food and drink market. Our 1 micron activated media will remove organics and microplastics from water.  Thanks to its large hydrophobic area and highly mesopourous structure, our activated media can filter much finer particles and approximately 50% more organic substances than carbon. Self-sterilizing surface. Fully resistant to bacterial growth
    3. 0.001 micron Quantum Disinfection media
      Quantum Disinfection™ media destroys 99.99% of bacteria and viruses via a catalytic reaction whereby the electrons inside the pathogens are irretrievably attracted by the positively charged surface. The large surface-to-volume ratio of nanoparticles enhances the adsorption of chemical and biological particles, while enabling the separation of contaminants at very low concentrations. The catalytic reaction causes the entire structure of the microorganisms to collapse on a molecular scale. In less than 0.1 seconds, the pathogen ceases to exist completel
