PuriBloc is the innovative new water purification technology inside the GoPure pod. The technology is designed to enhance the taste of potable water by promoting and maintaining freshness, assisting pH and mineral balance and adsorbing occasional impurities and particulates. The GoPure pod is only suitable for enhancing water, which has already been prepared and supplied as drinking water. Outer case is made of polypropylene and the internal core is a highly porous, advanced ceramic The GoPure pod is .90” x 1.95” in size.
Clean your bottle or water container thoroughly before filling with water and using your GoPure Pod for the first time. When using the GoPure Pod for the first time rinse it under water before placing it the container. The GoPure Pod will sink to the bottom as the ceramic fills with water. This may take a few seconds. The GoPure Pod starts to work immediately. Occasionally shaking the container or swirling the pod about in the water promotes the performance of GoPure. The GoPure Pod should remain immersed and covered with water for best performance. Your bottle or container can be topped up with fresh drinking water regularly without any need to empty the residual content.
One GoPure pod remains effective for up to six months and can treat up to 264 gallons of water over this time. One GoPure works most effectively in containers up to 3 liters in capacity. It is equally functional at volumes less than 3 liters as it acts by equilibrium dynamics as it delivers effect based on demand from the water. Any container over 3 liters will require extra time for the GoPure to work effectively or require a second Pod.
GoPure can be used in drinking water vessels, hydration packs, water coolers, coffee makers, RV and boat water reservoirs, and pet water bowls.
GoPure preserves and pH balances water while it is stored, keeping it, healthy, clean and fresh.
Problems can occur though if water treatment is inadequate or through events after the water has reached its destination. Contaminants can get into a container of water if the tap/faucet is not clean. Water that has been standing for a while will collect airborne contaminants. When someone takes a sip from a glass or bottle, they can transfer contaminants to the water. After entering the water the contaminants can multiply quickly.
Minerals are chemical elements such as calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, etc. These elements are essential to the structure of the body and also its function and fundamental to our diet. Chemical and electrical processes are continuously happening within our body and these can only function correctly if there is a proper balance of minerals present. We replenish spent minerals through the food we eat and water we drink.
Water in particular, if deficient in essential minerals, actually makes matters worse by removing minerals from the body as nature attempts to maintain its mineral balance between body fluids and the deficient water. Thus it is vitally important to human health that the water we drink is correctly mineralized.
After centuries of farming, nutrients in soil have often become severely diminished through non-replacement and by leaching away into local waterways, lakes, and oceans. This means that our crops in turn, often become deficient in trace minerals.
The human body is programmed to maintain a pH level of 7.4 which is slightly alkaline. In order to maintain this balance, It attempts to achieve this by a series of different compensatory strategies. These strategies can create stress on organs, tissues and body systems. A very low pH value (highly acidic) can seriously disrupt cellular activities and bodily functions and interfere with life itself. Therefore, it is vital to good health to maintain a correct pH balance without stressing the body to achieve it. Drinking water with a raised pH level helps to achieve this.
For thousands of years, it was considered that water had no particular taste. In recent times, with the availability of a wide range of bottled waters, people found that they had a preference for some brands over others and it came down to taste. The taste of water is quite subtle compared to other products but as people in the last decade have become more aware of the need to keep hydrated and are now accustomed to drinking much more water on its own, they are more aware of the taste of different waters.
The taste of water may be altered in various ways. Water that is left standing in a vessel such as a pitcher or coffee water vessel gradually loses oxygen to the atmosphere – this can make the water taste stale. Additionally, over time, CO2 dissolves in the water which reacts to form carbonic acid and lowers the pH of the water, which also affects the taste.
For optimal performance the GoPure product should be rinsed periodically to remove any accumulated impurities. If necessary, the pod can be cleaned gently under running water with a soft bristle toothbrush. GoPure is non-hazardous and can be disposed of in accordance with local recycling requirements.
Porous Ceramic is recognized as one of the best filtration media, but there are two key problems/limitations:
(i) Poor low flow rates which must be compensated by high pressure
(ii) Bio-fouling resulting in the clogging of the ceramic pores
The PuriBloc technology eliminates these two fundamental problems by creating a unique ceramic material structure that permits high flow at low pressure where the material properties prohibit bio-fouling protecting filtration performance enhancing usage longevity.
It has a cleanable filter surface for prolonged life and the materials are highly durable. The hardness of Diatomatious earth, the main ingredient of PuriBloc, is measured on the Vickers Scale which is the scale that diamonds are measured on. It will not erode away during cleaning, unlike their competitors. PuriBloc is not affected in any way by extreme heat, chlorine, detergents or disinfectants.
