Like a natural sponge, takesumi adsorbs and retains 3 times more air and water pollutants than a conventional activated carbon.
Resulting from Japanese ancestral know-how and using original production techniques, the bamboo charcoal that we offer is of incomparable purity and quality. It comes from the south of Japan and has not undergone any treatment. (no pesticides, no GMOs).
Takesumi charcoal is remarkably porous able to absorb and retain 3 times more pollutants from the air and water than a classic activated carbon. Its absorption surface area is 3000m2/gram. It is also an excellent odour and moisture absorber. Being naturally charged with negative ions it attracts toxic particles to itself and mineralises running water thanks to its content of silica, acid, calcium and potassium.
How effective are these pieces of charcoal? Is bamboo as good as oak? Is the cost justified? And compared to cartridge filter jugs?
I had all these questions in mind, and I think I can answer.
A short description to start with: 15 bamboo charcoals sticks, in the form of sticks about 1 cm wide by 17 cm high. They are supplied in a cardboard box, and protected in a plastic wrapping (funny idea I just say), probably because the charcoal is quite fragile and breakable.
It is bamboo, not oak. In my opinion it is an excellent choice, because oak changes NOTHING to the efficiency of activated carbon, it grows much more slowly and requires much more resources than bamboo which is extremely fast growing.
We try charcoal because tap water does not taste very good, so we don't need to buy a lot of water bottles. Takesumi LTD sales great products !
Purchase in addition to the ceramic beads for water treatment, pure difference! Water is good! Avoid plastic water bottles to excess. It's good for the environment and for your wallet. Takesumi LTD donate to plant trees. I love it!
I live in an area where the water, rather calcareous, has a particular taste, and when I put the coal in my decanter, I totally feel the difference between fresh tap water and water in the decanter.
Don't be surprised, the charcoal will float in the bottle for two or three days before sinking to the bottom.
These bamboo charcoal sticks are perfect for removing the chlorine smell from tap water. I don't buy a bottle of mineral water anymore!
I knew that charcoal (yes, the one you use for your barbecues) removes odors from rainwater and here we discover that the same principle applies to tap water. It's wonderful and easy to use. Very valuable because it was said that because of the severe dryness caused by the heat wave, the water had reached dangerously low levels in the reserves and that the quality of the water had suffered as a result.
Very nice packaging, efficient and environmentally friendly product... Well done!
The price/quality value is probably one of the best, as it is a mix of various shapes and sizes of sticks and
some are broken (nice packaging in fabric, but not very stable for fragile sticks)
For me this is of no importance, because I chose the most beautiful and big ones for the water carafe and the others for other services. (air sanitizer, smell, magnetic waves...) . We appreciate the leaflet concerning the maintenance of the charcoal !
Works great for removing the taste of tap water.
Powders are really cool to use and generally quite efficient.
I like this kind of concept that's an innovative. Between the use and the composition, it's an amazing product that I could buy.
I recommend it.
