Nature Pure Purifies water instantly.  Using no chemicals it removes bacteria cysts and viruses (!!) as well as taints and cloudiness, giving safe bottled water quality straight from a tank with no taint, chemical, chlorine, or other bad taste. Ecologically friendly & chemical-free!  Buy below >>>

In tests against other processes including UV, distillation and even reverse osmosis it beat them all in one or more, or even in several important areas. Nature Pure Filtering is specified by major airlines.

NB: There are also cheaper replacement cartridges that do not filter bacteria & viruses, both types are offered below. In QC2 that is the similar looking but 'SC' version. This cheaper type may suit if you have reliable access to hygienic but tainted water, on UK campsites e.g. The stronger type might suit those travelling in or to somewhat wilder, remoter, places. The compact QC1 product uses the shorter-squatter QC1 canister as pictured left.

Filter cartridges 400009 for the earlier filters - as pictured right - are now available again

The Nature-Pure Ultrafine™ Water Purifier is the only chemical free purifier of its type certified to meet the EPA Guide Standard for Microbiological Purification by removing bacteria, cysts and virus. Nature-Pure water purifier also excels at chemical and aesthetic contaminant removal*. Importantly, Nature-Pure water purifier is environmentally friendly, working without electricity, chemicals or wasted water. Plus Nature-Pure purifier doesn't need large storage tanks, double-processing or hold time. What's more it doesn't remove the beneficial minerals and electrolytes essential to essential to good health and to good tasting water.

Structured Matrix Technology: General Ecology, Inc.’s “Structured Matrix” technology tested and trusted worldwide is the most advanced purification technology available today, instantly and effectively providing microbiologically safe drinking water according to the EPA protocol referred to above. General Ecology water purifiers, by actually removing pathogens, also remove the toxins contained in the pathogens together with many pesticides, herbicides, industrial solvents, foul tastes and odours. Tests were conducted at the University of Arizona’s highly regarded, independent laboratories Dr. Gerba and Staff reported “the Seagull IV X-1 systems passed the EPA Guide Standard for all three classes of microbiological contaminants exceeding the recommended removal levels…” This was achieved without the use of chemical additives or multiple pass through. Test results available.

So why is it so good and is it worth the extra?  To quote GE, "This 'next generation', 'Structured Matrix' technology includes a combination of truly advanced purification concepts and techniques not available from any other product. ... This technology was specifically designed by multi-disciplined scientists and engineers, from a comprehensive overview analysis, to protect against modern environmental and ecological pollutants ... most other products have evolved from older water softening or charcoal filtering products". General Ecology purifiers remove viruses, bacteria and protozoa, PLUS many organic and inorganic chemcial and aesthetic contaminants at the highest "purification" micron level (0.4 microns absolute) to provide great-tasting water while protecting against water-related disease.

Supplied as a kit with or without a push-to-operate top quality tap (faucet) for pressurised systems (i.e. non-microswitch).  The main purification unit can also be fitted into micro-switched water systems with your own micro-switched tap or maybe our compact single folding microswitch tap as pictured right. It is just 40mm high folded and compact under top too with a ~20mm spigot (ideal for most motorhomes but too short for domestic style thick worktops unless rebated). Flow rates will be lower than the pressurised system rates quoted below but still at very useful levels. You can also fit into your existing water cold pipe if desired. Buy below >>>

Structured Matrix Technology:  The General Ecology "Structured Matrix" technology purifies your drinking water and protects you without using chemicals: The older type with the internal 400009 filter cartridge illustrated right.

Ultra-fine Microstraining Down to 0.1 micron (0.4 micron absolute) - small enough to remove all visible particles...as well as waterborne enteric disease bacteria, Giardia, Cryptosporidia and other specific parasites. Unlike less advanced systems, our superior technology physically removes these contaminants*

Molecular Capture & "Broad Spectrum" Adsorption Mechanisms remove chlorine and organic chemicals including specific pesticides, herbicides, and solvents, along with foul tastes, bad odor and color. Importantly, valuable minerals and electrolytes remain in the water. These minerals and electrolytes are essential to good health and to good tasting water.*

Electrochemical Separations Because small particles are electrically charged, General Ecology's Structured Matrix, with oppositely charged surfaces, removes colloids and other particles even smaller than those removed by microfine filtration.*

* See actual Test Data Results for specific contaminants - www.generalecologyeurope.com/tstsnp.htm
But come back here to buy - we're cheaper!!  Does not remove beneficial materials. Does not desalinate.

All three of these mechanisms work together in mutual support within the monolithic structure of the Structured Matrix cartridge. General Ecology's products work instantly, without the use of chemicals.

Our View:  Absolutely brilliant. No more concerns about water quality here or abroad - no dicky tummies. Full and convenient use of your on-board tank, no more lugging separate carriers about, superb in your whisky, makes great tea and coffee, even cooked veg tastes better!  What's more it's almost maintenance free, just protect from frost and change the cartridge occasionally to suit your usage. Excellent!

Shopping around?  Notes of caution - a) there are several types of filter system bearing the Nature Pure name - the latest QC2, the QC1, the first QC, and the older 'Ultrafine' system with picture & diagram above just to identify the older cartridge type. b) Even in QC2 there are two different filter cartridges - one with the microbiological filtering and a cheaper one without, we offer both types. The new style QC cartridges look similar to the QC2 pictured right (the QC1 is obviously shorter/squatter).  c) The UK importer-distributor changed recently and there is still an old uk website online published by an old uk distributor - products and prices there are most probably old info too. Everything here is via the official new 2018 importer-distributor!

These are all stock items. We stock the cartridge replacements too but admit that they are sometimes cheaper direct from General Ecology - if actually available.  We can undercut their prices on complete units but may not always be able to compete with their published cartridge prices. PS: We now know that some of those earlier bargain prices were too good to be true with a lower spec - not so here!!  Buy below >>>

How do I know which type of water system I have?  A microswitched system has electrical connections under the taps and usually has a submersible pump in the water tank and this runs only when a tap is opened. In contrast a pressurised system has taps without wires underneath and often has a remote on/off switch for the water pump. This pump can be heard running to build up to pressure when first switched on, also it often runs on slightly longer after a tap is closed in order to restore the pressure in the system.

Other General Ecology products?  Yes, 'First Need' now available as above and below, also 'Seagull' systems should become available again soon and we will publish here. In the meantime if of special interest  please do email us. Marine grade Seagull IV X-1F (R) & RS-1SG Cartridges now listed to buy below.
