Self-Flushing Under-the-sink Water Purifier
Point-of-entry and Point-of-use
Why use indoor water filters?
Recent research shows that tap water, in Malaysia, is contaminated with traces of chemical compounds, heavy metals, and various other impurities. And the aging ducts and pipelines that carry our water can accumulate rust, lead, viruses and bacteria, as well. All these pollutant compounds and elements should be eliminated and not be allowed to enter your property’s water supply. This cannot be fully accomplished at the point-of-entry (outdoor water filter) level, alone; thus the need for indoor water filters.
Once the outdoor water filtration system has done its job,indoor water filters – referred to as, point-of-use (POU) water filters, in the industry – help to filter out and remove the remaining finer sediments, such as sand, rust, and eventually other material that may still be present in your water. That is to say, indoor water filters help to guarantee the safety and purity of your tap water supply.
Remove the broadest range of all possible contaminants
Ultra membrane and Granulated Activated Carbon
Chlorine – which is added, as a disinfectant, to the Malaysian water supply – is a prime reason for the use of indoor water filters. Although chlorine is reduced to safe levels, by means of outdoor water filters, any remaining chlorine should be removed from your water supply, before drinking. Indoor water filters are designed specifically to remove chlorine – and compounds called, trihalomethanes (a carcinogenic by-product of chlorination) – from the water supply.
For the safety of your property’s drinking water supply, you need a filtration barrier (such as the ultra membrane used in Blöndal’s indoor water filters) that will filter down to 0.01 micron in combination with granulated activated carbon to successfully remove the broadest range of all possible contaminants from your water supply.
Auto-Cleaning Ultra-Filtration (UF) Membrane
Hollow Fiber Membrane
Water flows through the hollow fiber membrane, traps sand, dirt and particles down to 0.01 micron. Up to 99.99% of bacteria and viruses are removed. Water from backwash is suitable for your other kitchen chores like cleaning, washing and rinsing.
The Mechanics Of Ultrafiltration (UF) Membrane Usage
Ultrafiltration (UF) Membrane Use In Blöndal Water Filter Systems
Whether your residence or business facility here in Malaysia utilises a ground, surface or municipal water supply, a Blöndal filtration system comprising a (UF) membrane technology can and will provide healthful and good-tasting water – for you and your family as well as your workforce.

80% Coconut Shell Granular Activated Carbon
20% Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF)
GAC (Granular Activated Carbon)
Reduces chlorine and toxins that produces foul odor and taste in your water. Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF) uses a high-purity copper-zinc formulation that reduces heavy metals, iron, scale and organic matter. KDF filter media also extends the lifespan of granular activated carbon while protecting the carbon bed against bacterial growth.
The Use of Activated Carbon
Our engineers at Blöndal are qualified and experienced in supplying your residence or business here in Malaysia with an activated carbon filtration system that addresses your particular concerns, regarding safe and efficient water consumption.
The negative effects of chlorine are deadly. It has been found that chlorine can cause detrimental harm to fetuses, infants and children. It reacts with other contaminants in water to create cancer causing compounds.
To combat these harmful compounds, our local Malaysian water authorities use several forms of filtration and purification. Chlorine is added to help kill bacteria, and improve the quality of water. Chlorine – as essential as it is, to treat water – is actually extremely harmful when ingested. It can react with other decaying organic matter found in water, such as twigs, leaves, and dead insects; creating a dangerous cancer-causing compound called Trihalomethanes (THM).
Benefits of Activated Carbon in Water Filter Technology
Reduction of chlorine is the most important aspect of water filtration technology. Activated carbon utilises its surface area to bind and contain contaminants. It is most effective at reducing chlorine and other impurities from the water; resulting in the removal of unpleasant odours.
Activated carbon has a remarkable absorptive capability for a broad spectrum of dissolved organics – such as the absorption of orthochlorophenol and the removal of free chlorine from water supplies – and, the flexibility to be custom-tailored to suit specific applications.
Blöndal uses coconut-based granular activated carbon (GAC) in all filtration system. GAC makes for an excellent filtration media, having a high density, balanced pore structure for a more efficient absorption.
The use of activated carbon results in the desired end product: clean and healthy water – void of organic contaminants and objectionable odor or taste.

Clean and safe drinking water
Blöndal Källa 8
The use of point-of-use (PoU) water filters (indoor water filters) – connected to a water source – provides clean, safe water for drinking and for all kitchen chores, such as rinsing foods, food preparation, and cooking. Indoor water filters also removes heavy metals, such as iron; improving the colour, smell, and taste of your water.
Blöndal specialises in the development of environmentally-friendly, cost-effective indoor water filters for any and every business or home in Malaysia. For you business, we recommend our residential water filtration systems.
With Blöndal’s indoor water filters (Källa Series), your tap water will be pure and clean and you will readily see, smell and taste the difference.
