UltraFiltration 0.01 micron BioStone water filter for Vesta GL 988 water ionizer
-for use preferably with water sources that have NOT been chemically treated/chlorinated-
Also called a UltraFine/UltraFilter membrane water filter this water filter is the same size filter that is used in kidney dialysis.
It is the finest (smallest micron) domestic water filter available and will remove virtually everything except for the essential alkalizing minerals.
Typically, if on city water we recommend the regular Biostone Standard GSF water filter for Vesta GL 988 water ionizer but for well water and where there is hyper-allergy issues we recommend this .01M Biostone UltraFiltration water filter.
We also recommend using a Professional Water Testing service if not sure about the quality of your water.
The picture above shows a single .01M water filter magnified 40 times. Hundreds of these are in a Biostone UltraFine Water Filter.
The Biostone .01 Micron (.01M) contains Granulated Carbon -Impregnated with Silver ; the”UltraFine” waterFilter removes chlorine, bad taste, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, all other common water micro-organisms and other contaminants from the incoming water.
What remains is great tasting, CLEAN & HEALTHY water with the essential alkalizing minerals still intact.
The ionized alkaline water filter also includes a layer of calcium with magnesium plus a layer of tourmaline.
Composed of the highest quality materials
Biostone 0.01 micron alkaline ionized water filter Composition
– UltraFine/UltraFiltration Fiber Membrane:
The 0.01 micron super-minute porous structured fiber system allows minerals pass but easily eliminates viruses, bacteria, cysts and parasites.
Biostone 0.01 micron alkaline ionized water filter (for Vesta GL 988 water ionizer ) is reccomended for well water surces
– Silver Impregnated Carbon: .
Silver is also impregnated into the carbon to ensure NO bacteria click here can grow in the water filter media.
Because it is embedded, or impregnated, into the carbon the silver does NOT leach into the water. Tests done by the Seoul Department of Health show that NO silver is released from these Biostone 0.01 micron alkaline ionized water filters.
The water filtering function uses active carbon which is carbon created by burning palm trees at high temperature. This is a secondary pollution-prevention function
– Special Textile water Filter:
This Biostone 0.01 micron alkaline ionized water filter ( for Vesta GL 988 water ionizer ) contains a triple textile water filter, so no need to worry about germ propagation.
– Tourmaline Ceramic:
The tourmaline in this patented, state-of-the-art Biostone 0.01 micron alkaline ionized water filter ( for Vesta GL 988 water ionizer) really makes a difference in the ability of the water to carry an ionized charge naturally. As the water passes over the tourmaline crystals the -ORP (Oxygen Reduction Potential) is naturally increased and the water made more bio-available. What this means is if water passes through your water ionizer –even with the power turned off – the water will come out more ionized!
This material produces an 0.03 mA electric current. It has composite functions such as absorption / repulsion, anion formation, etc, that are highly effective for activating tap water.
– Calcium and Magnesium:
These alkaline minerals enhance electrolysis capacity and improve the taste of the water.
Calcium not only helps to slightly remineralize the water but also naturally sweetens the water and changes volatile fluoride molecules into a benign compound (calcium fluoride).
Magnesium in water creates molecular hydrogen

How do I know when my water ionizer filter needs to be replaced?
The water filter indicators on the front of the AlkaViva Vesta gl988 water ionizer shows both water filters life indicators (for position #1 and #2).you need to be looking at the water filter life indicator for whichever position this water filter is in. When the water filter indicator reaches all 5 bars, and starts blinking, it’s time to replace the water filter. Also, remember to reset the water filter life indicator once you install the new water filter(we reccommend using this UltraFiltration water filter instead of the sediment shiled for VEsta GL 988 if you have well water source!!!).
It has been two years since I changed my water ionizer filter last, but I don’t use the water ionizer that often. Do I still need to change the water filter?
YES. Even though you may only be using the water ionizer once in a while, the water ionizer filter media and housing is filled with water. The integrity of the internal water filter media will begin to diminish over time, and the inside of the water filter will degrade. Therefore, it is imperative that you change your water ionizer filter at least once every 12 months
Is the .01M Biostone UltraFine water Filter appropriate for city-supplied water?
Yes as Vesta GL 988 has 2 water filters and you can choose to install a UltraWater filter for muncipal tap water
What does the term “Biostone” refer to?
Biostone refers to the addition of a ceramic formed of the semi-precious mineral tourmaline within the water filter.
What is tourmaline & how does it effect the water in my water ionizer?
Tourmaline naturally emits far infrared energy (FIR) and changes the surface tension of the water, making it:
(a) easier to process for the water ionizer and
(b) beginning the negative ion creation process.
In practical terms it means you’ll get better water by far, even with the “Purified Only” water setting, and you’ll get more antioxidant effect with the alkalized water, without an accompanying increase in alkalinity. It’s like an antioxidant ‘supercharger’
Is this BioStone water filter made by AlkaViva?
No, this UltraFine BioStone water filter is made by Jupiter Science in Korea, and sold exclusively through AlkaViva in the United States. You can always tell which water filters come from Jupiter Science because they are bluish-green in color.
