    Pure Water Through Ultraviolet Technology

    The Sun-Pure "Six Step" Water Purification System

    • Cleans The Water
    • Removes Chemicals
    • Eliminates Heavy Metals
    • Reduces Fluorides And Heavy Metals
    • Removes Chemicals, Bad Taste And Odors
    • Destroys Microorganisms

    Only Sun-Pure Has These Features:

    Water Cleaning Prefilter

    Heavy duty 1 micron sediment filter removes dirt, rust, scale, silt, sand and other suspended particles including cysts such as crytospridium and giardia to produce sparkling clean, clear water.

    Chemical & Lead Removal Filter

    Molded carbon block filter "Carbon compressed under high pressure" removes chlorine, THM's, "chloroform-carbon tetrachloride", benzene, chlorinated solvents, herbicides, pesticides, and other related volatile organic hydrocarbons.

    Incorporated into the carbon block filter is the "Engelhard ATS leads sorbent matrix material irreversibly locks onto any lead in solution reducing the concentration well below Environmental Protection Agency guidelines.

    Heavy Metal Taste & Odor Filter

    Activated tricalcium phosphate also known as "calcium hydroxyapatite". This material is well known for its ability to reduce fluoride and many heavy metals such as aluminum and copper through absorption and ion exchange processes.

    Granular activated coconut carbon media is used to absorb chemical contaminants of light molecular weight such as THM's, chlorinated compounds, and radon which can be displaced by the pre-filter after prolonged use.

    Ultraviolet Disinfection Chamber

    A unique feature to the Sun-Pure Water Purifier is the use of Ultraviolet Light to destroy microorganisms in the water.

    Ultraviolet light attacks viruses and bacteria by destroying the RNA and DNA complex of these organisms. Once this complex is destroyed the disease causing viruses, bacteria, and parasites can no longer reproduce themselves.

    100% of the filtered water is passed through the disinfection chamber.

    Built In Micro Computer

    Microprocessor controller provides the ultimate in user friendliness. This advanced feature in water technology not only keeps track of the amount of time the filters and ultraviolet lamp have been installed, but also the actual volume of water that has passed through the system. The service indicator lamps will change from green to yellow, alerting the consumer 30 days in advance to order replacement components, and then to red indicating the filters and ultraviolet lamp must be replaced. The microprocessor control will not lose track of time due to power interruptions.

    Comments about Ultra-Sun Sun-Pure Replacement Water Filter Set & Lamp (Original Model - 2 Filters):

    I was worried that I might not be able to find the Sun Pure Replacement Water Filters since the unit I have is no longer made. Sylvane had exactly what I needed for less than anyone else and free shipping. It arrived 2 days sooner than expected. Thanks, Sylvane, great service, great price, great website, I'll be back.

    Sun Pure filter

    Comments about Ultra-Sun Sun-Pure Replacement Water Filter Set & Lamp (Original Model - 2 Filters):

    I love my old-fashioned dual filter, which has lasted about 17 years so far. Aside from one leaky tube it has worked great. The only problem is that the filters seem to change their look at times and it's always a guessing game to see how to load them in the proper order. I wish the filters were numbered 1 and 2 and included a clear diagram as to their position within the unit.


    Uneven manufacturing quality

    Comments about Ultra-Sun Sun-Pure Replacement Water Filter Set & Lamp (Original Model - 2 Filters):

    My family has used Sun Pure filters for over 15 years, and the quality of the filter, the ease of use and cost are all exemplary. However, we replaced the first one and have had extensive problems with the replacement after a couple years; its gaskets and tubing were defective in several places (all plastic), resulting in a leaky filter. Also, the parts are not standard plumbing, so it isn't feasible to replace them. The first model we had performed admirably for many years. Obviously, the company no longer seems to exist, so there's no recourse. Even if it were feasible to buy the same model, I would avoid. I also advise paying more attention to how the filter is made, what kind of parts, etc., in addition to its features and results. Lastly, the computer chip never seemed to work.

    Comments about Ultra-Sun Sun-Pure Replacement Water Filter Set & Lamp (Original Model - 2 Filters):

    I've had an UltraSun Water Purifier for probably 15 years. The quality of the product is very good. Although it is stored in a damp basement year-round, the enamel has not failed, and aside from one hose -- which leaked -- it has served me well. I can really taste the difference when the filters need to be changed so I know it's working.
