NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE Drinking Water Recoverer

Scope of application

NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE Drinking Water Recoverer (hereinafter referred to as the “NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE) is intended for enhanced drinking water recovery treatment of water  from superficial and underground water resources  as well as  from centralized water supply systems.

This model of NAQWA® SWR contains SHUNGITE rock – the unique Russian mineral rich of FULLERENES which are considered to be the STRONGEST natural ANTIOXIDANT on the Earth to the date!

NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE is additionally equipped with

The Fullerene Enhanced Cartridge - enhances purification of water and makes it enriched with antioxidant Fullerenes!

Application of NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE reduces to zero or an acceptable level the  concentration of the following dangerous components:
- malignant bacterium;
- radio nuclides;
- heavy metals;
- pesticides;
- other hazardous substances.

At the same time all important for human health micro elements are remain preserved in the treated water.

Decreases Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP).
No Power needed.
No regular change of cartridge needed.


The  track membrane cartridge is the core NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE element. The track membrane cartridge on NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE model includes SHUNGITE which enhances purification of drinking water  and makes it enriched with antioxidant Fullerenes!

The track membrane is a thin polymer film of about 10 microns thick on each square centimeter of which there are hundreds of millions of pores (holes) of 0.2 - 0.4 microns in diameter (approximately 100 times thinner than a human hair!), thus ensuring the warranted high quality of the purification process.

The purification quality remains unchanged and does not reduce its perfectness until the complete expire of NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE operating resource.

NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE is made of materials approved for contact with drinking water, migration rate of any substances from NAQWA SWR SHUNGITE materials into water does not exceed the established norms.

During purification the risk of mixture of purified and contaminated water is practically eliminated due to the special structure of NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE.

NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE is very easy and convenient to use at home, and it is indispensable particularly outdoors (travelling, fishing, hunting, expedition), as well as in emergency situations. Small size and light weight of NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE make it universal for both in and outdoor usage.

NAQWA SWR operation is very easy and includes the following 6 simple steps:NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE Cartridge (1) is a track membrane located inside a soft bag which serves as an external preliminary filtering bag ( the bag retains solid particles, ooze, tangle, etc). The track membrane located inside the external bag is welded up along its perimeter and fitted with a coupling for release of the recovered drinking water through the soft outlet tube (2) connected to the coupling. The track membrane is wrapped around a metallic stainless frame. The frame provides rigidity to the cartridge and keeps it immersed in water in vertical position

NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE operation, (Fig.1)

NAQWA® SWR operation is very easy and includes the following 6 simple steps:
1. Prepare a container for recovered drinking water (4) (a drinking water vessel, a plastic bottle with a cut top, a suitable package, etc.).
2. Fill the raw water container (2) with raw water and locate it 30-100 cm higher than the container for recovered drinking water (4).
3. Take NAQWA® SWR out of the transportation case and remove the tube plug (5) from the outlet tube (3).
4. Immerse NAQWA® SWR cartridge (1) into the raw water container (2), keeping the free end of the outlet pipe (3) off the container.
5. Lightly suck the air out of the outlet tube, the purification process will start within 5 seconds. If the air is not sucked out of the outlet tube the cartridge will get soaked up with raw water by itself and the purification process will begin in 10-15 minutes.
6. Place the free end of the outlet tube into the container for he recovered drinking water (4).
Note. At the beginning the recovered drinking water will flow as a current the intensity of which  may decrease with time and after a while NAQWA® SWR will start operating in its normal “drop-by-drop” mode.


NAQWA® SWR SHINGITE  cartridge should be cleaned in case of visual deterioration of its productivity. In order to do that, remove the track membrane cartridge from the pre-filter bag, open it and thoroughly rinse under water current. Contamination of the membrane surface should be gently removed with a soft tissue.
Do not overpress on the membrane as you may damage it!  The membrane thickness is only 10 microns!!!
For the most effective cartridge restoration soak the cartridge in 5-7% citric acid solution and leave it for several hours. Afterwards wash the cartridge surface with clean water. Another effective method of cartridge treatment is cleaning in weakly alkaline environment with further subsequent rinsing under water current. In the latter case dishwashing alkaline-based detergents can be used. After cleaning, assemble the cartridge in the reverse order.       
It is recommended not to use the first 0.5 -1.0 liters of water recovered after cartridge cleaning in alkaline solutions.

- During cleaning do not disconnect the outlet tube from the coupling connecting the tube to the cartridge;
- Prevent invasion of raw water and detergents inside the track membrane. For this reason it is recommended to plug the free end of the outlet tube with the end cap provided

Operation Guide

1. During the operation, it is recommended not to locate NAQWA® SWR  exposed to the direct sun.
2. In case of a long break in operation for more than 5 days, remove the track membrane cartridge from the bag, wash, dry and store it in a clean place,  having closed the outlet tube with  the end cap.
3. In case of a short break in operation for 2 - 5 days it is recommended to keep the cartridge in water, hanging the free end of the outlet tube at the edge of the raw water container, however not dropping it into the container.

To prevent any damages to the track membrane the following actions should be avoided:
- usage of NAQWA® SWR  for other purposes rather then drinking water recovery;
- back- blowing the cartridge filter through the outlet tube;
- wiping the cartridge with rigid materials, brushing the cartridge;
- connecting the outlet  tube to pressurized water pipeline.


NAQWA® SWR SHUNGITE should be stored inside the supplied consumer package in a dry  place at temperature of 0-70°С.

It is recommended not to store NAQWA® SWR outside the package case.

Warranted shelf storage term before commencement of operation is 5 years from the manufacturing date.
