How does it work?

The zazen Alkaline Water system has been designed to emulate Mother Nature’s natural water filtration and remineralisation process. Water in nature filters slowly through Mother Earth before bubbling up through a pristine spring, full of energy and lifeforce, essentially living water.

Our drinking water becomes contaminated in two main forms: bacterial and chemical. With a State-of-the-Art 10 stage process, the zazen Alkaline Water filter system works to clean your water, reducing bacterial & chemical contamination, and then rebalance, remineralise, protect and restructure the water so that you enjoy the very best alkaline drinking water full of essential health benefits.

It has been designed by zazen, in collaboration with leading Japanese and Korean water scientists, specifically for Australian and New Zealand water supplies.

STAGE 1: Ceramic Filter

Replace every 12 months

  • Constructed of highly compressed and fired Diatomite earth with
    a pore size 0.2 – 0.5 micron.

  • Removes rust, sediments and organic matter.

  • Stops bacteria, cysts, parasites and hazardous micro-organisms.

STAGE 2-7: Multi-Stage Filter Cartridge

Replace every 4 to 6 months (6 months single person, 4 months family/office).


Stage 2 – Silver Activated Carbon

  • High quality silver activated carbon inhibits bacteria growth in filter.

  • Reduces chlorine, herbicides & pesticides, industrial poisons &
    MTBE”s, Trihalomethanes (THM”s), organic chemicals, odours and particulates.

  • A purifying surface area of over 68 acres! (Silver is not released into the water)


Stage 3 – Fluoride Reduction

  • Designed for the effective filtration and reduction of up to 90% Fluoride in
    treated water supplies.


Stage 4 – Activated Zeolite

  • Inhibits bacteria and traps heavy metals such as lead, aluminium, nickel,
    cadmium and mercury.

  • Removes detergents, ammonium, agricultural chemicals and other toxins.


Stages 5, 6 & 7 – Bio-Ceramic Pi,  FIR Energy Balls & Silica Sand

  • Constructed from highly compressed diatomaceous earth and mineral oxides.

  • Emits beneficial Far-infrared to energise the water and Pi energy to enhance bioavailability.

  • Provides additional filtration to balance pH and neutralises acidic components in tap water.

  • “Polishes” the water for brilliant clarity and sparkle.

  • Infuses natural silica – renowned for strengthening collagen for radiant hair and nails. 

STAGE 8: Natural Mineral Stones (1kg box)

Replace every 5 years

  • Contains calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, silicon and other
    trace minerals. *WHO – the World Health Organisation recommends
    drinking water containing all these minerals.

  • Helps balance, fortify and assist with pH and increases the amount of
    dissolved oxygen in the water.

  • zazen Mineral Stones are mined from pristine deposits 300 + metres below the
    earth’s surface without damage to the environment.

STAGE 9: Silver Stones (500g box)

Replace every 12 months

  • Silver is a natural anti-bacterial agent which by design keeps the lower tank clean
    and maintenance free – you only need to clean the bottom tank once a year!

  • The zazen Silver Stones naturally preserve the freshness of the water in the zazen
    tank through this anti-bacterial effect – ensuring the best quality water is ready to
    drink all day, every day. (Silver is not released into the water).

STAGE 10: Magnetic Energy 1200 Gauss Tap

  • In this final stage we surround the water with magnetic energy – just as spring water is exposed to the earth’s magnetic energy.

  • Restructures – magnetising water creates a free flowing hexagonal structure and also breaks down the size of water clusters for faster, immediate cellular hydration.

  • As the water tumbles through the magnetic tap oxygen is increased (a natural anti-oxidant).

zazen FAQs

Does the zazen system remove fluoride?

The zazen Alkaline Water system has been designed to selectively remove and reduce chlorine, fluoride, bacteria, heavy metals and many of the harmful toxins in our drinking water – whilst retaining the beneficial minerals critical for life and proper hydration. The zazen Alkaline Water system emulates Mother Nature’s natural water cycle which includes filtration and then the rebalancing of water with life giving beneficial minerals and energy. With regard to Fluoride, independent tests have shown the zazen Filter Cartridge naturally removes up to 90% of the fluoride. As with any natural filtration system, reduction will reduce with volume of water through the filter, so it is critical that the zazen Filter Cartridge is replaced as recommended every 6 months at a maximum, 4 months for a large household, office or clinic.

Is the zazen Water System plastic safe?

Yes, all zazen Alkaline Water system tanks, seals, the tap and parts (Filter Cartridge housing etc.) are BPA (Bi-Sphenol A) and Phthalate free. Hungry Water versus Balanced Water is the Key!
One of key principals and purpose of the zazen Alkaline Water Systems 10 Stage State-of-the-Art micro filtration process is to; rebalance, re-mineralise (with a balanced range of alkaline minerals) and restructure your drinking water into an ideal state for hydration; this means that the water is in a “balanced state” and “not hungry”. Hungry Water – what is it? If water is “hungry” e.g. acidic (low pH below 7.0 which is neutral) or lacking in alkaline minerals (water created using reverse osmosis technology), it will always seek to rebalance itself – just as our body keeps our blood in pH (7.369) balance. This rebalancing process means that hungry “unbalanced water” kept in unsafe plastic containers will leach what-ever it comes into contact with including the chemicals from the plastic in an attempt to rebalance itself. Most bottled water is acidic (hungry!) – many we have tested have a pH of 5.5. The zazen Alkaline Water system process – ensures that if the water entering the zazen bottom tank is in a “hungry state” – it will actually be sitting in a natural healthy environment supporting the water, allowing it to rebalance itself “naturally” and healthily. The zazen Water bottom tank has natural alkaline mineral stones in it. These unique and pristine natural mineral stones enable water as its first preference, to take up alkaline minerals from the natural stones; In this balanced state it is “not hungry” and will not seek to draw anything more from anywhere else. Creating water naturally in a balanced state is the most critical aspect of the zazen Water process ensuring healthy hydrating water, that tastes delicious!

How often do I need to replace my parts?

Your zazen Alkaline Water system has 4 different parts that need to be replaced at specific times: 1. Multi-Stage Filter Cartridge – every 4 to 6 months* 2. Ceramic Filter – every 12 months** 3. Silver Stones (red) – every 12 months 4. Mineral Stones (grey) – every 5 years If you are also using the Alkalinity & Anti-Oxidant Enhancer, it should be changed every 12 months. *With the zazen Filter Cartridge, for a 1 to 2 person household, you should change it every 6 months at a maximum. For a large household, office or clinic, you may need to change it more often, depending on usage. **If you use tank water you may need to change sooner

Our commitment to our customers is that we will continue to innovate and provide the best possible filtration and remineralisation system for you and your family.

If my tap water is alkaline, do I need your system?

Yes, many metropolitan water supplies across Australia can be alkaline but that does not mean it is good for you. This goes to the very essence of what zazen Alkaline Water aims to remedy, and is an important question to answer. Part of the zazen Water mission is to educate on the impact of alkalinity and to qualify the belief that more alkaline is always good. It is not quite that simple. Let us first understand how some Australian water supplies can become alkaline, and then we will tackle why this is not ideal, and how zazen Water works with this and consistently delivers water that hydrates at a cellular level.

Does zazen use bone char in any of its products?

Bone Char is NOT Used in any zazen Water Product or Filter. zazen Water does not use any bone char media in any product. There are some claims from competitors who are advising customers we are (don’t know why they are claiming this as it is false) – we do not use bone char in any of our filters.

My zazen water is leaking, what do I do?

There are only 4 ways your system will leak and they are easily fixed as follows: 1. Overfilling – The bottom tank holds 8 litres of water ONLY. You cannot fill the upper tank if the bottom tank is already full, otherwise water will overspill between the 2 tanks. 2. The Multi-Stage Filter is overflowing – If the water seems to be flowing out of your top tank faster than the Filter Cartridge in the bottom tank can filter it through, there may be some air bubbles in your Filter Cartridge. You will need to take off the top tank, remove the Filter Cartridge and complete the following steps: - Fill a 2 litre jug or similar with clean cold water. - Submerge the Multi-Stage Filter Cartridge fully for 1 minute or until the air bubbles have stopped coming out of the filter. - Take the filter out of the jug and hold over the sink. - Pour about 2.5 litres of clean cold water slowly through the top of the filter. Make sure the water starts to run out the bottom. Knock the filter firmly against your hand several times during this rinse cycle to help clear any air bubbles, then continue to pour water through the filter. - You may now screw your Filter Cartridge back into the Cartridge Connector and place back into the System. 3. There is an Alkalinity & Anti-Oxidant Enhancer (AAE) (or a few) stuck inside your tap. This can happen if the system has been moved and caused the AAE’s to be sitting very close to the back of the tap. You will need to drain your system (fill drink bottles, your kettle, water plants etc) so as not to waste water. Undo your tap by unscrewing the magnetic back and taking the tap out of the tank. Give it a shake and a tap and see if any AAE beads come out. If nothing comes out of the tap you will now need to unscrew the band that the silver lever is attached to, turning it anticlockwise while holding the lever in the other hand. The lever will then pop off the tap and you should be able to see any AAE beads lodged within the tap. After you have completed these steps you will need to screw the lever back into the tap, place the tap through the hole in the lower tank with a silicon washer on each side. Screw magnetic back onto tap inside the bottom tank and tighten. 4. Magnetic Tap has been over tightened – If your system is leaking from around the magnetic tap it means the back of the tap has been over-tightened. This pushes out the silicone washers and they cannot seal the unit around the tap hole. Similarly if the washers are too loose, they may be allowing water to escape. Simply empty the lower tank and take off the top part of the system and check the back of the tap sitting inside the System.

Can I recycle my old filters and stones?

When it's time to replace your zazen filters and stones, your old filters and stones can be recycled as follows: Filter Cartridge – over time this filter traps toxins, chemicals, poisons, heavy metals and other contaminants in its layers as it filters your water. We recommend that you DO NOT RECYCLE this filter – put it in a plastic bag, tie it and put in your rubbish bin. Ceramic Filter – this filter can be put in your recycling bin as it is just made of ceramic and a plastic base. Silver Stones & Mineral Stones – these can just be used in the garden as rocks. Cardboard/paper packaging – dispose of in your recycling bin.

My water is filtering slowly from the top tank, what do I need to do?

This generally means that the Ceramic Filter in the top tank has become coated with the organic matter, rust, sediments, etc it is filtering from your source water. Depending on your water source, you may need to clean the Ceramic Filter on a regular basis (depending on location, this can vary between weekly and monthly). Do this with a clean wet cloth, gently wiping the ceramic. You can also use a lemon to help whiten the ceramic– NEVER use detergents or other cleaners! You will know ongoing when you need to clean your Ceramic Filter as your system will slow down when filtering water.

Why do I need to replace the filter cartridge regularly?

To ensure the very best quality water for your health and wellness benefit, it is important to change your filters and stones on time. With the filter cartridge, we recommend a maximum time in use of 6 months. If you have a large family, or busy office/clinic, you may need to change your filter cartridge sooner. After filtering hundreds of litres of tap or tank water, your zazen Filter Cartridge gets "clogged" with the heavy metals and other contaminants it has removed by trapping them in its filter layers. This means its ability to filter your water is reduced over time. The need to change the filter is not just based on usage, but also the period of time it has been in use in your system, sitting in a moist environment.

Why do I need to replace the ceramic filter regularly?

To ensure the very best quality water for your health and wellness benefit, it is important to change your filters and stones on time. With the Ceramic Filter, we recommend a maximum time in use of 12 months. If you are pre-filtering the water going into your zazen Water system eg. you have a filter on your tap, you can probably extend the filter life to 24 months – you will be the best judge depending on how discoloured your Ceramic Filter gets over the first 12 months.

Why do I need to replace the silver stones regularly?

To ensure the very best quality water for your health and wellness benefit, it is important to change your filters and stones on time. With the Silver Stones, we recommend a maximum time in use of 12 months. Over this time, the Silver Stones lose their effectiveness such that bacteria can start to reappear in the water sitting in the bottom tank, greatly impacting the quality of your drinking water.

Why do I need to replace the mineral stones regularly?

To ensure the very best quality water for your health and wellness benefit, it is important to change your filters and stones on time. With the Mineral Stones, we recommend a maximum time in use of 5 years. Over this time, the Mineral Stones gradually lose their effectiveness and will leach smaller quantities of the balanced range of natural minerals found in the stone, impacting the level of alkalinity and mineral-richness of your drinking water.

Why do I need to replace the alkalinity enhancer regularly?

To ensure the very best quality water for your health and wellness benefit, it is important to change your filters and stones on time. With the Alkalinity & Anti-Oxidant Enhancer, we recommend a maximum time in use of 12 months. The Alkalinity Enhancer is absorbed over the 12 months in use, and the rates of ionised minerals being released into your water will have diminished over that time.

Is the glass tank safer than the plastic tank?

Our BPA-Free Plastic Tank does not leach chemicals into the water sitting in the bottom tank, so from a health perspective both tanks are equally effective. We have been asked by many customers for a glass tank simply because we know some of you like glass! Just like you like to be able to choose between BPA-Free Plastic and Glass drinking bottles. So we now offer this option for customers who prefer a glass tank.

If I purchase a zazen water system plus glass tank, do I get the BPA-free plastic bottom tank?

Yes, you will still get the BPA-Free Plastic Bottom Tank as well. This gives you a lighter weight option for those customers who like to pack up their system and travel with it on holidays, as well as a spare tank should you accidentally drop the glass tank!

Do zazen offer a money back guarantee?

Yes! We want you to be delighted with your zazen Water product purchase. If anything you order from zazen fails to meet your expectations (and you are the sole judge), you may return it to us within 90 days for a prompt refund. We want to make your online shopping experience easy and fun.

What warranty is provided on zazen water products?

We offer a warranty on all parts of the zazen Alkaline Water system to be free from any defects for 5 years from the original date of purchase. On our Shower Filter product range, we offer a 90 day warranty to be free from defects from the original date of purchase. Please note: The zazen Water Shower Filter Range is designed for Australian and New Zealand plumbing standards, we do not warrant the products to be fit for use outside of Australia and New Zealand and therefore are unable to extend any warranty on these products outside of Australia and New Zealand.
