What is a Stefani water purification crock?
~ It is a two piece, sturdy terra cotta counter top unit that uses gravity to purify water.
~ It's hand made in Brazil by local artisan potters by a family social enterprise.
~ It uses triple action micro-pore ceramic, colloidal silver and activated carbon filtre cartridges to make delicious water totally safe for consumption.
~ It is assembled and disassembled without tools and only the float is a moving part.

Why use a Stefani water purification crock?

~ It's healthy. The triple action micro-pore ceramic, colloidal silver and activated carbon filtre cartridges efficiently reduce and remove chlorine, bacteria, lead, viruses, fungus and other harmful microorganisms and chemicals. Because the filtres are ceramic, not plastic, they do not leach hormone disrupting chemicals into your water and into the landfill afterwards.

~ It's environmentally friendly Using the Stefani crock eliminates single use plastic water bottles, comes in a cardboard box, and replaces many plastic water filtre cartridges. It also uses no electricity because the water is gravity fed, and does not waste water (unlike reverse osmosis which concentrates toxins in the 70% of water it wastes).

~ It's affordable. Ceramic and stainless steel water crocks generally cost 4 times more to buy, and water purifying machines cost 7 times more to buy. Conventional counter top and refrigerator pitchers cost 2 to 4 times more to operate because of the need to change the filters more often.

Stefani Traditional triple action filters make water crystal clear and eliminate impurities present in the water. Each sterilizing and dechlorinating filter candle contains colloidal silver and activated carbon elements that efficiently reduce and remove chlorine, bacteria, lead, viruses, fungus and other harmful microorganisms and chemicals making water totally safe for consumption.

Improve the quality of your drinking water in the kitchen using natural and cost effective solutions! Read how the Stefani Traditional triple action filters work here: http://www.anarreshealth.ca/node/1340

The replaceable Stefani Traditional triple action filters last up to 6 months or 500 litres of water filtered. Conventional water filtering jugs offer replacement filters that last only up to 6 weeks and are normally made of hormone disrupting plastic.

The ceramic wall on the replacement filters offer superior filtration of 0.5 microns which is like a fraction of a particle of sand. This removes most impurities from your water not offered by popular solutions.

Chlorine is removed by granular carbons made from coconut shells. Read more here: http://www.anarreshealth.ca/node/1340

Stefani water purification crocks require no electrical power and eliminate the use of plastic water bottles in homes and cottages and thereby reducing environmentally hazardous waste!

Used worldwide for its excellence in design and water purifying qualities in countries like US, England, Australia, South Africa, Peru and others. Respected and used extensively by Non Governmental aid Organizations as an affordable solution to provide clean water to under-privileged areas of the world.

I recommend the Stefani water purification crock with Traditional triple action filters for:

~ cosmetic makers who want to replace distilled water with pure filtered water.

Nothing can provide more pure water than the Stefani water purification crock.
It works as a real water treatment plant.

I am presently the only supplier of Stefani water crocks, filters, and replacements parts: float valves and taps in North America!!! I carry a small stock because I am committed to my two water crocks for the production of natural cosmetics and for my family, and to my clients who have purchased water crocks from me.

MAINTENANCE: Like all gravity fed water purification systems, you will need to periodically clean your crock and parts inside and out. The filtering candle(s) will need to be replaced every 6 months, and if your water is especially dirty from old plumbing etc, then you will need to lightly scrub the candle under plain running water between changes. Efflorescence will appear on the terra cotta (earthenware) just like on clay plant pots. Please wipe the excess off daily, or at minimum weekly. I will review each maintenance point with you upon pick up. For more information on the origins of the Stefani crock and its maintenance, please see the Frequently Asked Questions: http://www.anarreshealth.ca/node/1266

FILTRES ARE ALWAYS IN STOCK! Replace filters every 6 months or 500 litres, whichever comes first.

If your water is filtering very slowly before that time, that's good news - your cartridge has trapped a lot of metals and larger particles because your water is hard or dirty. Simply remove the filtre cartridges and scrub with a non metallic scrubber in plain running water. Your cartridge has trapped a lot of metals and larger particles, but your filtred water will be purified!

WHERE TO PUT IT: These beautiful terra cotta water crocks are best on a stand where household members can easily get a glass or water or refill a bottle. A stand provides the best ventilation around the crock, too, and puts water at the centre of household life!

In hot countries, water crocks are placed just outside the front door! The hotter the air, the cooler the water thanks to evaporative cooling. Sharing this water with passersby is often traditional.

If you are putting the crock under cupboards on a countertop, please give yourself clearance so that you can fill the purifying reservoir with water. In a tight spot, a watering can will be easiest. Please note that limiting air circulation around the water purifier may result in mold growth on the outside of your purifier. Please strive to keep the water purifier on a counter top, stand or otherwise in the open.

Water crocks come with all parts and filters needed. Most clients order a set of filters so that they are set for a whole year. Taps and floats do not need replacement unless accidentally broken. It's nicer to clean them once in a while, though!

REPLACEMENT Any part which is found to be defective after we've gone over trouble shooting by phone or email will be replaced.

RETURNS will only be accepted for unopened saleable items.

Efflorescence and other maintenance issues, breakage once you have taken possession, or from forceful installation will never be a reason for return.

To reserve one, please order and prepay below. Upon pick up, you can see each size put together and change your order if you like and pay or be refunded any difference.

Local delivery in the City of Toronto, delivery by bike courier may be available for an extra $20 with a few days notice. Please request in the Comments with your order.

#1 traceytf : alkalinized water

Does the Stefani water crock produce alkalinized water like the Kangen system?

No, it does not, and nor should it. Read Dr Ben Kim's explanation: http://www.drbenkim.com/ph-body-blood-foods-acid-alkaline.htm

In a nutshell, spending thousands of dollars on a
machine that changes the pH of the water that you
consume or on any number of products that are
marketed to change your blood pH won't lead to a
significant difference in the acid/base balance of your
blood.

Your body has buffering systems in place to keep your
blood pH within a tight window (about 7.35 to 7.45).
If your blood pH goes above or below this range for
more than a few minutes, you'll experience central
nervous system depression or go into a coma. This is why your
body won't allow your blood pH to deviate very much no
matter what you eat or drink.

To become "less acidic" I advise you to:
1. Eat fresh and raw unprocessed food as the mainstay of your diet.
2. Drink 2-3 litres of water per day, up to 1 litre of alkalinized water if you wish. I sell easy to use alkalinizing tubes here for $90. http://www.anarreshealth.ca/node/1574
3. See a naturopath to treat any immune depression or low level chronic infection which may be causing your body to defensively raise the acidity of your blood.
