More and more South Africans are welcoming this special water filter into their health-conscious homes. Kuro-Bo Activated Charcoal is the first and only 100% plastic-free, natural and recyclable water filter in Africa. Activated charcoal, or Binchotan, has been used for centuries in Japanese culture to filter and purify water. The charcoal attracts positively-charged toxins and heavy metals, and draws them out of the water, while depositing beneficial minerals into the water. Activated charcoal also removes bacteria (e.Coli) and balances the water's pH. A single stick of Kuro-Bo charcoal can give you up to 3 months of cleaner, healthier, better-tasting water.
17 out of 17 people would recommend this product17/07/2017, By JudithI've recently started boiling our drinking water and it tasted ok, but adding the Kuru-Bo stick to the water has made such a positive difference - it really tastes good! I did a blind taste test on my husband and child and they both preferred the water that had been filtered with the Kuru-bo stick. I have recommended it to many friends.17/07/2017, By SusanI have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. Because, well basically you put a charcoal stick in the water and you think a miracle will happen. But it exactly does that. I normally get the heavy metal taste after drinking a lot of water during the day. After started using this you can't imagine the big difference it makes. It tastes like fresh water!06/07/2017, By patriciaThe water tastes very nice and my whole family loves it.05/07/2017, By SophiaVery user friendly product to be used at home and camping. My pets just love their water filtered with the charcoal. So important to drink pH balanced water with a bonus of naturally adding calcium and minerals through out the day without taking extra supplements. Removed bacteria (e.Coli) from your water that can cause a lot of health problems is important also. Water filtered with charcoal, tasted very nice and my pets also love it. Thank you faithful to Nature for the quality organic products available03/07/2017, By SHARLAINVERY EFFICIENT PRODUCT02/07/2017, By MimiIts too soon to give five stars but wow this stick actually works!!! It has transformed the taste of our 'chlorine treated' tap water tremendously.22/06/2017, By MaryThis is my new best friend - already ordered another one. Water tastes like it used to. Now to tell my friends...19/06/2017, By AyandaSurprisingly enough, it works.07/06/2017, By JTook this with on my last overseas trip, so no more worries about quality of tap water wherever I go.05/06/2017, By DebbieI was in desperate need to find an alternative to filtered bottled water after a rather nasty incident with water from a very reputable source. I boil filtered water for my son's milk bottles, tea and water bottles and have found that this is really the perfect alternative to bottled filtered water. I now only use this water for any consumption in my home, drinking, cooking, tea or coffee and the best thing is that I won't run out of bottled water. I trust and love this product.02/06/2017, By AndreaI just can't get over how fresh and clean my water tastes - no clunky filters to clean out and replace - just this wonderful product. It even makes the water carafe look quite classy ;p01/06/2017, By NickyI have had my Kuro-Bo for more than a month and have done the 10 minute re-boil - the water still tastes great! Tested versus tap water and water from a jug filter and it's really a huge improvement on the tap water, and better than the jug - removes chlorine taste, metallic taste and muddy taste. Great product!30/05/2017, By Yu-tingEasy, convenient and eco-friendly. Not sure if its just a placebo effect but I do feel like the tap water tastes a lot better04/04/2017, By FatimaKuro-Bo is a very effective water filter. The quality of tap water is improved 100%. There is a huge difference in the taste and feel of the filtered water compared to water straight from the tap. Ive been using it for a couple of weeks. I heat the tap water before adding the charcoal and leave it for 10-12hrs and it works perfectly every time.09/03/2017, By NinaWe tested Newlands Spring Water, ordinary tap water and kuro-bo filtered water and kuro-bo was without doubt the best, most refreshing tasting water! Our whole family loves it! Would highly recommend it - and I love the easy and natural way the charcoal can be disposed of when its done its job after 3 months.24/02/2017, By lisaLove the product, water tastes great.14/02/2017, By RobynThis is the single best product I have bought anywhere in a very long time. Although I adore my stefani filter, it does not have the edge on this very simple, extremely innovative, effective and eco-friendly product. So easy to use, the water tastes magnificent (my son calls it loving water) and I love the fact that it is so versatile and can be used in water containers of my choice. Now all we need is for someone to design a filtered drinking bottle for water on the go!
