Discover The Aragon Filters Difference
Allow us to be direct:
Aragon filters are only right for you, if you're looking for the highest quality water on board your boat.
Whereas many suppliers to the marine market list dozens, even hundreds of products, and leave you to attempt to make the right choice, we take a very different approach.
Our focus is exclusively on the Aragon range of filters. We've made this choice since we believe (and in this article will look to prove) that their ability to filter the water on your boat is truly unparalleled.
So if you're looking for truly high-quality and great tasting water on board, for:

Aragon Filters vs The Alternatives
Now, you certainly have plenty of options when it comes to filtering your water. And it's true that many of those options present themselves as the "ultimate solution".
So in this article, we'll aim to explain why we consider Aragon filters to truly be the ultimate choice for your boat. And importantly -- we'll include proof to back up these bold claims.
At the simplest level, Aragon filters are unique in the following ways:
- Industrial strength water purification, in an easy to install solution.
- An incredible degree of impurities removed - while - leaving in the "good stuff" (some filters on the market actually remove the good along with the bad). Specifically - this means that health-giving minerals stay in the water, even while the impurities are removed.
- These filters work rapidly - while also - having surprisingly long lives.
- These filters turn hard water soft, without salts (this is a very good thing for you and your boat, and rare, if not unique among water filters).
Yes, we're aware this may all sound a little "too good to be true". And if you have your doubts, that's great! We wouldn't have it any other way. :)
But what we've shared with you so far is just a "30 second overview". If you'd like to find out more, allow us to share with you exactly how these filters are unique, how they benefit you and your boat, plus we'll even include proof to back up our claims...
Difference 1 - Industrial-Level Filtering
Industrial level water filtering on your boat in a simple-to-install system is unusual, to put it mildly.
In fact, there's only two water filter producers in the world that create filters that remove all viruses and bacteria:
- Geyser who produce the Aragon filters we sell (more details here).
- Ahlstrom who specialise in water filtering solutions for industry.
And since we saw the tremendous benefits these filters offer, we jumped at the chance to become the first distributor in Western Europe who has the right to sell Aragon filters.
Difference 2 - Remarkably Powerful Multi-Approach Filtering
Aragon filters take a four-step approach to filtering impurities:
- Mechanical Filtration
- Ion Exchange
Rather than overwhelm you with scientific terminology, here's a summary of harmful contaminants these processes remove, along with the percentage typically removed:
Chlorine -- 99.9% removed
Pesticides -- 92.0% removed
Petroleum products -- 90.0% removed
Heavy metals -- 100.0% removed
Dirt, sand and harmful particles -- 0.1 μm in size 99.0%
Bacteria and viruses, including legionella and salmonella -- 99.9% removed
Lead, zinc, cadmium -- 95.0% removed
Iron -- 95.0% removed
- Aluminium -- 97.0% removed
Difference 3 - Softened Water, Without the Salt
The "Ion Exchange" filtering method unique to the Aragon filters turns hard water into soft water, without the salt. This unique approach is often referred to as "Quasi Softening", and gives you (and your boat) all the benefits of soft water, including:
- Water, food, and drinks taste better.
- Equipment and appliances last longer.
- "No streaks" when cleaning your boat.
- Softer skin and hair when washing.
Difference 4 - Cartridges That Work Quickly - and - Have a Long Life
You may well have experienced slow-filtering water cartridges.
It's frustrating isn't it?
Well, in comparison Aragon filters purify water surprisingly quickly.
But not only do these cartridges filter rapidly, but at the same time they have remarkably long lives.
Of course, the speed at which these filters work, and how long they last, is affected by how much "pre-filtering" you apply to the water coming onto your board. That's why we highly recommend sediment filters for removing mud, dirt, rust, and other impurities well before they reach your main whole boat filter.
Keeping that in mind, here are filtering speed and lifespan averages for Aragon filters:
Eco (under counter filter):
Typical Filtering Speed: 2.5 litres a minute
Typical Lifespan: 12,000 litres
Typhoon Slimline (10SL):
Typical Filtering Speed: 15 litres a minute
Typical Lifespan: 15,000 litres
Typhoon Standard (10BB):
Typical Filtering Speed: 25 litres a minute
Typical Lifespan: 25,000 litres
Typhoon XL (20BB):
Typical Filtering Speed: 50 litres a minute
Typical Lifespan: 50,000 litres
Important: Unlike other filters that continue to channel water through at full speed even when they're no longer filtering effectively, Aragon filters will filter much slower at that point, making it clear when the cartridge needs replacing.
Difference 5 - Simple to Install in Almost Any Boat
The Aragon filters:
- Can comfortably fit in any size boat.
- Are easy to install due to using standard size connectors:
The only non-standard size filtering system is the Eco, which takes little room and is easy to set up under any sink you may have on the boat.
