With a capacity of the lower tank (where the filtered water enters) of 8 liters, this is an ideal water filter for a family with 2 to 3 people who also want to cook with the water. For 1 and 2 person households who only want to drink water and make coffee and tea with it, the Aqualine 5 is an option. For families with 4 or more people, the Aqualine 18 or the Neos is a better option.
Aqualine 12 - The benefits
- Glass collection tank
The beautiful glass collection tank of this Aqualine 12 is handcrafted in a traditional glassworks in South Korea. The blue glass is meant to filter UV light. The glass is clear, looks beautiful and is easy to clean. Because the tank is mouth-blown, each tank is unique and there may be blemishes.
- Excellent filtration
Comprehensive filtration through a ceramic pre-filter (0.2 microns) and a multi-step filter. As a result, microplastics, GenX, PFAS, heavy metals, drug residues, pesticides, chlorine and hormone residues, among others, are filtered out of the water by an average of more than 99%.
- Alkaline or pH neutral
When ordering, you have a choice between an alkaline or pH neutral version. With the alkaline version, the pH of the filtered water is increased by 1-1.5 pH point to slightly alkaline water. With the non-alkaline version (€10 cheaper), the filtered water becomes pH neutral of around 7.3.
Effortlessly turns tap water into delicious filtered mineral water, no more lugging water bottles around. Can be placed anywhere (no electricity or water connection required).
Save on the high cost of (unfiltered) bottled water and save the environment. Tap water in the Netherlands costs an average of €1.40 per 1,000 liters.
- Excellent taste
The carbon also removes unpleasant odors and tastes from the water. As a result, experience the great taste of filtered water.
- Low maintenance
Only replace filters once a year (or after 2000 liters if you filter more than 6 liters per day) and mineral stones once every three years.

With the Aqualine 12 you can turn rain or ditch water into drinking water, which is why these devices are very suitable in emergencies.
Aqualine 12 - Technology
In nature, mineral-rich water is created as rainwater slowly percolates through various layers of soil. As a result, it is filtered and absorbs minerals and trace elements. Aqualine water filtration systems also work according to this principle.
By using gravity, the filtering process in the Aqualine system mimics nature. Thus, no electricity is needed!
- Superior in filtration
Aqualine systems are proven to be able to filter up to 99% of contaminants from water. The performance level of Aqualine systems are therefore comparable or even superior to filtration in most other water systems that cost up to ten times the price and also require electricity. Turns tap, rain (barrel), river or ditch water into clear and healthy drinking water.
Through the Elvan mineral stones, water is mineralized with various minerals naturally present in water.
The 4 magnets of 1,200 Gauss in the faucet make the water swirl just as it behaves in nature. This is a physical process (Schauberger principle) through which the water is vitalized. Vitalization is widely used in horticulture, for example. Just swirling the water ensures better harvests.
1st stage - the ceramic filter
This filter is located in the filling tank and has a fineness of 0.2 microns (0.0002 mm). With this pre-filter you already remove much of the contamination from the water including bacteria, undissolved calcium and magnesium particles. The water slowly passes through the filter and then trickles into the multi-step filter.
2nd step - the new generation multi-step filter
The composition of this new generation multi-step filter was developed especially for Aqualine products.
High quality silver impregnated activated carbon type 30X60 with high uptake.
(Most common is type 20X40 with larger grain and less uptake).
Zeolite pellets. Environmentally friendly pellets with high adsorption value, filters chlorine compounds such as trihalomethane from the water and various heavy metals, softens the water.
Silica and combo beads. The balls are a combination of various substances including Tourmaline, Zeolite and Kaolin. They have a redox function and anti-bacteriological effect.
Illite combo balls. Emit a far infrared frequency of 9.23 micrometers. This frequency vibrates in the same frequency as the human body. This activates cells, stimulates and increases micro blood circulation. They soften the water to a pH of about 7.5. Furthermore, they also have an anti-bacteriological effect.
Clay balls. Increase oxygen uptake in the blood and improve metabolism.
3rd step - making it alkaline/basic with the pH ring
When you order, this is a choice. If you choose the alkaline version, the system comes with a pH ring. This ring is filled with magnetite beads, tourmaline beads, alkaline beads and magnesium beads. The ring increases the pH of the filtered water by an average of 1 - 1.5 pH point to slightly alkaline water. So how high the pH of the water becomes depends on your tap water.

4th step - mineralizing
During the extensive filtering process, some of the minerals are filtered out of the water. In the lower tank are Elvan mineral stones. A special volcanic rock which only occurs in a few places on our earth. The Elvan stones in the Aqualine systems come from South Korea. These porous stones contain 18 different minerals that are slowly released into the filtered water. The amounts released in the process are similar to the minerals found in natural water. Some of these Elvan stones are impregnated with silver. This allows no bacterial action to take place in the stagnant water. This allows the water to keep for weeks.
5th stage - vitalizing
Vitalization is a special process that mimics nature. Water in nature will never move in a straight line like our drinking water is pumped through pipes. The water in nature meets a stone or another uneven river, falls down a waterfall or is propelled through a bend. In this process, the water is put into a vortex where the water molecules (H20) are given a nice structure by hydrogen bonds. The magnetic tap contains 4 different magnets of 1200 Gauss. The plus and minus of these magnets lie alternately. This creates a vortex similar to what happens in nature. Due to the magnetic action, smaller clusters of the water molecules are created.
Vitalization is a process commonly used in horticulture. Without adding or removing any substance, the vitalized water has a beneficial effect on plant growth.

We are super satisfied with this filter, I used to get a strange feeling of fullness when drinking water from the tap, but not anymore and I even like the water. We also like the idea that it filters out so much, even medicine residues, which is necessary in this day and age, and also adds good minerals while vitalizing the water. And because the water here is acidic, we also have an alkaline ring so that the water becomes alkaline and is better for our health.

Very satisfied with the purchase of the AquaLine 12. The filter is very easy to put together and put into use. The eight liter storage tank is ideal for an ordinary household. The taste of our tap water is finally back as it should be without unpleasant side tastes.
We, (my wife and I) also use the 18 liter version, it is on a cabinet at our place (since it is on the cabinet, we left out the bottom white layer, which is normally meant that you can also put a glass under it).
