Inside the purifier is a purifying candle of advanced design. It has a micro-porous ceramic outer wall lined with colloidal silver, and holding an inner core of Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) made from coconut shells.
The water passes through this filter to be made pure and safe in three ways:
- The outer micro-porous ceramic pre-filter removes up to 99.9% of bacteria and 99% of suspended solids by screening down to one micron.
- The water then passes through the inner core of Activated Charcoal, which removes taste and odours, This core is protected by a bactericidal agent to maintain the purity of the water.
- A small (and necessary) amount of dissolved minerals and active biocides are left in the water to prevent any possibility of re-contamination.
Each Stefani Flex purifier is equipped with the Stefani water filter candle cartridge and also with a float valve to duplicate the reservoir water capacity, offering refreshing drinking water whenever needed.
The Stefani Filter candle replacement can last up to 6 months or 500 litres of filtered water. Please note that depending on the water quality in your area, you may need to replace the water filter candle sooner than the 6 month timeframe noted above. The Stefani filter candles offer superior filtration of 0.5 microns, which is a fraction of a sand particle. This high level of purification ensures the removal of most impurities from the purified water and results in the most naturally fresh healthy drinking water.

28 out of 31 people would recommend this product19/08/2020, By MeganIt started off dripping very slowly but it started going much quicker once I had completed one 'cycle'. It's still a bit slow, but if I keep it topped up at the top I always have fresh, clean water available.
It works really well. My water is clean and doesn't have any bad taste.11/08/2020, By YolandiLove my Stefani Water Filter.
You can see how dirty the tap water is in the top compartment and crystal clear, sweet water in the bottom. This was one of the best investments in me and my family's health. The replacement candles are easy to find and always available from multiple suppliers.13/05/2020, By NinaAlthough quite slow, it's perfect for me to get enough lovely filtered water to drink each day. It has made a major improvement to our tap water!02/04/2020, By WinnerNeed to be patient06/02/2020, By DonnaVery nice, thought it was a bit big at first to be counter top but the top part can be removed to make it much more attractive on the counter and not as bulky, water is beautiful27/12/2019, By DianneIt's lightweight and easy to clean. It's also easy to see when dirt has accumulated - the water in my area comes out the tap very dirty at times and it was easy to see that filter removed all the dirt. It was easy to assemble and the water comes out clean and good tasting. An all around winner.23/08/2019, By GabiAddendum to my review from 17.08 (does it take that long):
With the help of FtN, we were able to solve the problem (1. An airlock or air bubble can occur in the filter candle (especially when new) Resolve by gently shaking the candle.
2. The float valve could be blocked with carbon residue. This can be verified by running the unit without the float attached. )
and the water filter now delivers the promised 1 liter / hour.
Very happy about the product and the water tastes great!
However, there should be some troubleshooting in the Stefanie-flyer - would have spared us some annoyance.18/08/2019, By MaryamVery efficient water purifier. Just a bit slow, but worth it :) You can taste the difference.17/08/2019, By GabiWe just bought the Stefanie Waterfilter- after 22hours are only -/+ 4liter water through the Filter- Does it really take that long??03/07/2019, By AndreaWht an excellent product, can taste and see the difference.
Curious though, can I use it with borehole water? Would that be 100% safe?07/02/2019, By WhitneyReally loving our water filter, cannot belive the difference in taste! It just takes really long to filter through ..28/01/2019, By ElizéThis is one of the most mindful household items I have bought. It has really refocused my awareness of mindful water usage. It filters fast enough (albeit slowly) to maintain sufficient water usage and if you keep a 5 liter bottle of unfiltered water close by, you top up as you use and so you have a constant supply of filtered water. I absolutely love this addition to our kitchen. I am using less water, but more mindfully and healthier all round!03/12/2018, By MichaelExtremely slow filter. I own other gravity filters and this one is incredibly slow. If you want to be using 3 litres of purified water per day this might just manage but anything more and you will be running out constantly18/11/2018, By LisaThis Stefani Flex Filter has made us complete "water snobs" - we absolutely love it! Knowing that we have clean water daily is such a relief. My fur-child even gets this water! I only wish there were other colours as I'm not mad about the blue...26/07/2018, By LourenSo far I am extremely happy with this filter! It does exactly what it needs to and the water tastes amazing! The first filtration is quite slow, so don't expect to get a lot of beautifully filtered water on the first day, but after that it has been very efficient. We fill it up in the morning so that it can filter while we are at work, and by evening we can enjoy lovely, healthy water.
A nice tip: we have a water dispenser (just a simple, 10l container with a tap) and fill that up in the evenings with the filtered water, so that we can filter another tank while we sleep. Works fantastic!05/07/2018, By AzeezaI needed a water filter solution that doesn't take much space and this is perfect. It filters slowly but I fill up water bottles and keep them in the fridge for when the filter runs out. The water tastes better after being filtered so that's a plus. Easy to assemble as well, so far so good!07/06/2018, By BianccaBought for my cousin. She loves it and loves the fact that it is light weight and movable without breaking her back. Water taste great23/05/2018, By PhyllisThe filter itself is good and the water fantastic but my only problem is that it filters so slowly that I am always running out of water!14/05/2018, By TammyWas super easy to assemble and looks really neat on the kitchen counter. My only problem is how slow the water comes out the tap - because of this reason I also would’ve placed a bit more space between the tap and the bottom of the whole filter as you can’t place a glass or something under it on a countertop - annoying especially as the tap runs so slowely while you hold a glass under it. I’d definitely recommend it it for the filtration and aesthetics though.15/02/2018, By ErikaThe water filter works very well! We use it to filter rain water and borehole water. It is easy to operate and assemble and it looks neat and clean.08/12/2017, By mother of rabbitsVery easy to setup, really happy with the size. We have a water problem here and I am glad we can filter both tap and rain for drinking and cooking. I think that it is comparable to other plastic based filters. I wish that there was an option to choose a product color, in the box leaflet I see there is a range. I definitely would have chosen white.16/11/2017, By LiesieGreat tasting water! Worth every sent11/11/2017, By DeeI love this. Now we always have filtered water available. It gets filled once or twice a day. Previously used a Brita jug, and my family never filled the jug after use, so there was never water when I wanted it.18/10/2017, By AnnlerieI bought a Stefani water filter last year in November and discovered this week that the top water chamber had a crack. I contacted Faithful to Nature about this and their service was outstanding - as usual! They replied to my email first thing in the morning and soon thereafter the supplier (It's only Natural) also replied, saying that they will replace the chamber for free. Later in the day I got a phone call from them to say that they will not only replace the water chamber, but also include a free candle! I handle the water filter with great care and am very happy with the quality of the water, so it was great that they took my word for this. I was really impressed with the professional way in which this was handled. Needless to say I am very grateful for the new chamber and filter too! Thank you Faithful to Nature and Graham Bates from It's only Natural for making it such a pleasure to deal with your companies!11/09/2017, By SandraI have previously reviewed this product, but would like to update my review...I was having to clean the filter almost daily when using tap water, and our demand outweighed production! Now we use borehole water and I've only had to clean the filter about twice in as many months. It's doing a sterling job of producing sterling water for us! Thrilled!08/07/2017, By SandraI have used this product for about a month. The filter seems to work very well, and the water tastes great, but unfortunately our tap water seems to be rather filthy, and the filter gets clogged quite quickly, so our supply is not meeting our daily demand!17/06/2017, By AyandaThe filter is great, fast and the water taste amazing.
It surprise me a little when it came in a small box. You have to put the pieces together, but it was very easy and it came with a manual.
The only reason why I didnt give 5 stars is because its a little flimsy and give you the impression that the whole thing could came apart, but it doesn't.08/11/2016, By MichelleSo happy we bought this! Works really well and great knowing we are now all drinking clean water! Also not bulky at all so very easy to find a spot for it in my small kitchen!29/10/2016, By HeleenVery happy we bought it. Works exceptionally well.27/10/2016, By GerdaMet my vorige kommentaar het ek gesê dat die water van die filter regtig sleg proe en dat ek spyt is dat ek dit aangekoop het. Die verskaffer het my geskakel en gesê ek moet die boonste en onderste eenhede (nie die filter nie) oornag in water met 2 teelepels citric acid week en daarna weer water filtreer en kyk of die smaak verbeter het. Die water se smaak het aansienlik verbeter na ek die proses gedoen het. Hy het ook aanbeveel dat ek dit kort-kort kan herhaal tot die water
goeie smaak het. Ek was werklik geimponeer met die diens en kliëntesorg. Hulle bly ook opvolg om te hoor of ek nou tevrede is. Ek is werklik nou tevrede met die Flex. Dit is liggewig en ek kan dit oral saamneem vir
naweek of vakansie en het altyd lekker vars gesuiwerde water. Graham julle is tops met diens. Ek gee julle nou 5 ***** sterre. Dankie ook aan Faithful to Nature vir julle puik diens.21/10/2016, By GerdaEk het die filter ongeveer 3 weke gelede gekoop om by my huis te gebruik omrede gebottelde water so duur is. Ek het die eerste 12 liter gebruik om plante mee nat te gooi soos die instruksies gesê het. Daar was ook genoem dat die water die eerste paar dae
effense keramieksmaak sal hê, wat wel so was. Ons gebruik die filter nou al vir 3 weke op
aanhoudende basis, maar die water het regtig nie
lekker smaak nie. Ek is regtig spyt ek het die aangekoop.
