Where the magic happens

The best water filter in the world is also the smallest. That’s something of a marvel, given what’s inside. It is the first system ever to combine activated carbon with a high-tech membrane and turns 500 litres of tap water into pure refreshment.*

All Vital taps are supplied with a High-Performance filter as standard, but for those rare occurrences where an enhanced water flow rate is required, Franke have developed the High-Flow filter which is a superb alternative providing continuous high flow rates in areas where the High-Performance filter can get congested prematurely due to excessive sediment contamination in the water.

The High-Flow filter has a mesh size that is 20 times finer than ordinary household filters. As a result, rust, dirt and fine sediments are filtered out for cleaner water. Please note, the High-Flow filter does not remove microbial cysts, microplastics, bacteria, viruses or limescale.


Like a little wonder


Our water filter is not only the smallest in the world, but also the first to combine activated carbon with a bionic membrane. Modelled on nature, developed in Switzerland.

Vital Capsule Filter Cartridges

Easy to order replacement filter cartridges

When the LED light turns red, this is an indication that the filter has to be changed. You can purchase either a single filter or a box of 3 - each filter will last an average of 4 months. New filter capsules can simply be reordered online via:

*Vital is able to achieve this capacity assuming that a certain pressure of 3 bar and water quality is available. The filter flow rate and service time depend on local water quality. Increased contamination with harmful bacteria (e.g. bacteria contamination due to outburst caused by heavy rainfall), sediments (rust, silt, clay, etc.), microplastics and micro particles may reduce flow rate and service life due to the filter's outstanding capability to constantly filter these contaminants from the tap water.
