Ovopur Water Dispenser or a Happy Michelin Man? You Decide

by Rob on March 21, 2008


The Ovopur water dispenser is an environmentally friendly water filtration system. Rather than use electricity to filter the water, it uses gravity. I downloaded the brochure (13 page pdf file) and spent a bit of time reading over this eggcellent filtration system. I confess though that the brochure uses some terms that may be a bit difficult to decipher, so I thought I’d help you out. Here are some quotes from the Ovopur brochure [with my translations in brackets]:

Environmentally friendly to the core, the OVOPUR© unit doesn’t consume any electricity, using gravity instead to filter and revitalize [filter I get, but revitalize? Isn’t that what women do to their hair?] tapwater. Obtain crystal clear water in four easy steps:

a) Use a jug or OVOTAP© to fill the 4 liter [about 1 gallon] upper filtration reservoir [the small egg on top] and start the filtration process [water runs through carbon, copper, zinc and other stuff that filters out the gunk].

b) Water trickles [drips] from the filtration reservoir [again, small egg on top] into the main reservoir [large egg on bottom] via the AQUACRISTAL© filter cartridge [carbon, copper, zinc and so on].

c) The main reservoir [big egg] can hold up to 11 liters [about 3 gallons] of pure, fresh water, with the water level indicated by the magnetic gauge*

d) Simply activate [pull] the handle and drink!

With its multipurpose lid, the OVOPUR© unit can be used every day in filtration mode** [small egg left on top], or in distribution mode*** [small egg removed to make lugging the big egg around a bit easier] for special occasions.

One Ovopur–$550.

Two replacement filters–$100.

Knowing that your water will travel from the filtration reservoir to the main reservoir where you can simply activate the handle and drink–priceless.

Why not show things that are available but not “Trendy”

Brian, thanks for the tip. I’ll definitely check it out. As for green products, I try to cover both the trendy and the more practical.
