The Waters Co Bio 400 Bench Top Water Filter is the same size as the Bio 500 but comes with white housing. It is a good size for the home and smaller workplaces. It is a complete gravity-fed bench top system which isn't plumbed in and doesn't require electricity. You simply add water to the top and great tasting alkaline mineral water comes out the bottom via a chrome tap.
Waters Co is based in Hong Kong and has over 30 years of history making bench top water filtration systems.
Waters Co Bio 400 offers high levels of fluoride removal - up to 99% removal.

- Patented nano carbon compound for removing up to 99% fluoride. This is a natural ion exchange cation resin.
- 13 stages of filtration and activation across 6 multi-stage cartridges
- Sub micron pre filter removes dirt, sediments, rust, bacteria and high levels of copper. This filter helps to extend the life of the subsequent filters.
