FAQ Pro Elite
How does it work?
Fitted to your mains cold water, near your kitchen sink it works using a pump to push water through 6 stages of filtration. Each filter does a different job in the purification process. The filters we use are of the highest standard. When it comes to water we don't mess around. You deserve the best.

I’ve seen cheaper ones elsewhere why are the Pro Elites so much more?
There are several factors that make these machines more expensive they are the Rolls Royce of water purifiers. There size, the quality of manufacturing, the quality of the filters in the machines and lastly the technology. Machines that are based on technology that is 40 years old are available online for as little as €299 but you'll find they are inferior. We do stock cheaper machines so please ask for available models if the pro elites are outside of your budget.
