The Hydro Z Under Sink Energiser, filters, structures and energizes your kitchen faucet water and can be used independent of the Whole House Hydro Z or as a companion for enhanced purification and energization of your drinking water.
Filter housing #1 contains glass spheres and our exclusive No-Loss Activator Cartridge. The primary purpose of this filter is purify and energize your drinking water by means of vortexing and energy transfer.
This housing never requires replacement and works energetically to cleanse and enhance your water.
Filter housing #2 contains zeolite, bone char, quartz, shungite and amethyst in addition to our exclusive No-Loss Activator Cartridge. The primary purpose of this cartridge is remove contaminants from your water while energizing and structuring your water supply for enhanced cleansing, protecting and nutritional benefits.
Unusual Filter Media Qualities
Zeolite volcanic ash contributes health enhancing minerals to the water making it taste great while also removing chemicals, toxins, heavy metals, fluorides, pathogens and particulates greater than 5 microns. Read more about zeolite here.
Bone char is used as our secondary filtering media due to its unusually high adsorptive capacities for fluoride, heavy metals, particularly copper, zinc, and cadmium as well as highly toxic metal ions such as arsenic and lead.
Additionally, bone char is 100% natural with no harmful side effects as there are with other synthetic and heavy metal filtering media. According to our research, 100% natural bone char and zeolite are the most effective filtering media available for removing heavy metals, contaminants, fluoride and most contaminants from water.
Bone char is primarily made from cow bones heated in a sealed vessel at up to 700 °C (1,292 °F); a low concentration of oxygen must be maintained while doing this, as it affects the quality of the product, particularly its adsorption capacity. The organic material in the bones is driven off by heat, and that which is not driven off remains as activated carbon in the final product. Heating bones in an oxygen-rich atmosphere gives bone char, which is chemically quite different from it's original composition.
Note: Bone char enhances fluoride removal from water but can be eliminated from the filtration media for customers who request it. Choose "no bone char" at checkout.
Shungite is a black, lustrous, non-crystalline fullerene mineraloid consisting of more than 98 weight percent of carbon. It was first discovered near Shunga village, in Karelia, Russia, from where it gets its name.
This unique black carbon, silicate mineral possesses powerful cleansing properties removing bacteria, nitrates, heavy metals, pesticides, volatile organics, pharmaceuticals, chlorine, and fluoride while at the same time enhancing water taster and quality.
We also use various types of Quartz in our mineral blend because of its "Piezoelectric properties" As water flows over quartz crystals, electrical energy is created and passed into the water creating water with a softer feel. After interacting with quartz, water is more penetrating or 'wetter' which in turn contributes to an increase in soap lather and a fresher feel after taking a shower or soaking in this water.
Tourmaline also possesses piezoelectric qualities and emits energy in the far infra red wavelength. EMF within this wavelength has many health enhancing benefits.
Our exclusive blend of highly energized minerals all work to energize water, clean water and enhance water quality and taste.
Filtering effectiveness will vary based on your water source and toxicity levels. Periodic testing of your water is encouraged. See article on water testing on "Latest News" page.

Do I need to test my water?
Regardless of whether you are on city or well water, it's a good idea to test before installing your HydroZ and sometime soon after your unit has been installed. Test your water again in six months or when water quality diminishes or when you begin losing water pressure.
Are you on city water? If so, do you know if fluoride or chloramines are pumped into your water supply? Call your local water utility to confirm.
If common water issues such as but not limited to excess iron, manganese and hardness are present, other means will need to be initiated to correct these situations in order to prolong the life of your zeolite media and to insure the integrity of your water supply.
How often do filter cartridges require changing?
The Hydro Z comes with refillable canisters which saves you money on filter replacement costs as well as allowing you to recycle which means less plastic in our landfills.
Cartridge #1 - Your zeolite filtering media should be replaced:
- Every six months or as needed based on water testing, water taste or pressure loss.
Cartridge #2 - Your structuring and energizing cartridge never requires replacement.
How effective is the HydroZ at removing fluoride?
Fluoride is very difficult to remove from water and the only known 'natural filtration' media I am aware of that can remove or reduce toxic fluoride are zeolite, bone char and shungite. Thus far we have been able to remove 65% of naturally occurring fluoride at 1 ppm in tap water with a Hydro Under Sink unit.
Adequate hydration with structured and energized water rich with minerals is one of the best detox choices for removing toxins or an imbalance of elements from any life form. From my work in agriculture, I do believe structured and energized water will protect any life form from toxins as well as excess elements in water, (including fluoride), by sequestering them until they are passed out of the body. I surmise this process will take place so long as adequate energy is available in the water.
If your water contains fluoride, I would recommend a HydroZ Whole House along with a HydroZ Under Sink unit as fluoride is difficult to remove.
Can I keep my RO and Salt Softener?
If it was my house, I would replace my water softener and my RO with a HydroZ Whole House and an HydroZ Under Sink.
While RO's and salt softeners provide benefits, they also have negative qualities which impact health.
A salt softener's only benefit is elimination of scale and this can be accomplished with other systems that don't have such a negative impact on health. A safe and simple alternative is a polyphosphate system. It is compact and easy to maintain while keeping life supporting minerals in your water.
RO's remove toxins but also all minerals which are also essential for health. Additionally, RO's create acidic water and do nothing to remediate toxin energy imprinted by the toxins that the RO removed. RO tanks are also a breeding ground for pathogens.
The Hydro Z products will require filter media replacement from time to time based on the water quality in your area and if you're not used to maintaining your system yourself, this could present a problem unless you know of a handyman who could do this job for you. The positive side is that our system uses a refillable canister, reducing the plastic footprint and our 100% natural filtering media is a superb fertilizer for your garden, trees and yards. It also works great as an odor reducing kitty litter and can be used for oil or chemical spills cleanup.
Greenfield Naturals mission is creating water products which harness natural resources that promote life. We are committed to continually improving our water products to provide our customers with healthy, vital life force water free of chemicals, toxins, heavy metals and pathogens.
