The funnel which we supply perfectly fits the AQUA-VORTEX™ and the GoldAQUA-VORTEX Plus™ and is made from environmentally-sound Polypropylene (PP).
It is PVC, heavy-metal, plasticiser and BPA free. It is neutral, safe and strong, containing only long molecules of the gas propane (like the gas you burn safely on a stove at home, creating CO2 and water steam in the process) and some chalk. Even some body implants, ropes and drum sticks are made from PP = (C3H6)n, because it is so clean, neutral, non-toxic, strong and durable.
It is very likely that your mains water pipes are made of Polypropylene, or a version of it’s sister material Polyethylene (PE) = (C2H4)n, because it is a chemically inert material and does not react with water or dissolved chemicals that may be in the water. Unlike copper or some plastics, PP and PE won't leach any trace chemicals into water.
The ‘thinner’ sister material PE is also found as the material used in milk containers and the inner and outer lining of cartons for milk and milk-alternatives (e.g. oat, soya or coconut-milk) and cartons of fruit-juices etc.
We find the environmentally-sound polypropylene funnel lightweight (low postage cost), long lasting (does not break), easy to clean and inexpensive.
Furthermore it does not disturb the quality of the water and is neutral to its energetic imprint.
So far, we have not found a suitable glass or metal funnel that works so well.
You can clean the funnel with soapy water and, like the actual AQUA-VORTEX, it is also dishwasher proof.
If you have a separate filter tap and you want to connect your AQUA-VORTEX to it, you can order a suitable plastic tube here.
Our funnels are tested for migration and heavy metals in accordance with directive (EU)10/2011 ‘Plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food’ by the UK manufacturer.
