Vortex energizer for water filter


A vortex dynamiser of water at the outlet of a water filter device

There are many vortex water revitalization systems.
They are often expensive systems, impractical to use or which slow down the flow of water.
I designed here a vortex based on a logarithmic spiral, also called a growth spiral. This spiral is stretched to form a vortex.

The product is a vortex shaped tube. The system is placed at the outlet of a water filtration device, just before its outlet at the tap.
The dimensions of the filtered water outlet tubes are standardized and are 7mm in diameter. The water outlet tube should slide easily into the product.

The vortex water revitalization process

The vortex energizing water effect: the whirlpool makes it possible to recreate the natural phenomenon of water in its original state, leaving its source.

The vibratory rate is increased: the vortex helps to structure and energize the water molecules. This revitalization of the water by the vortex effect gives water that is more alive, and better assimilated by the body.

Water filtration apparatus

A lot of people ask me what system I use to filter water. Here are some explanations concerning the filtration device located upstream of my device. The energizing vortex is at the exit of a reverse osmosis unit, equipped with a remineralizing cartridge with coconut. This device filters all pollutants in the water (including drugs and viruses). The remineralizing cartridge makes it possible to raise the level of minerals to the recommended value around 20 mg / l (or ppm). In the photo above, the built-in sensor shows 12 ppm. It is recommended to remineralize with biocompatible minerals (here coconut). To give you an idea, tap water is around 300, some mineral water is up to 2000 mg / l, look it's marked on all labels!

I chose this model which has non-proprietary "standard" filter cartridges, to be changed every 6 to 24 months, from 5 to 50 €. The most expensive being the reverse osmosis membrane which must be changed every 2 years.

I chose a model without tank, but with an engine which will push the water through the filters. The flow rate is 300 gallons per day (GDP) or 0,75 liters per minute. Tank models keep water under pressure, so it comes out faster. The disadvantage and risk of bacteria growth during a period of non-use.

The yield of this type of osmosis unit is 50%, that is to say that for 2 liters consumed, you will make 1 liter of drinking water. The rest will be discharged into the sewers. I can already hear some scream at waste. Compared to 6-10 liters of water per flush drawn, producing 10 liters of drinking water (needs for 4 people) is equivalent to one flush. Which is around € 15 per year (calculation for € 4/1000 liters). There are now reverse osmosis units without rejections, but they are much more expensive.

If you want to make up your own mind on which water to drink, I highly recommend that you take a look at the video lectures by Researcher Marc Henry, who is a widely recognized French specialist. If you are in a hurry, watch from 1:13 Direct link.

    1. In fact, the water revitalization practices are usually done after leaving the tap.
      The idea here is to do it upstream, without additional manipulation, and without having to think about it.

  1. Hello Cedric,
    Thank you for sharing. I am trying to install a vortex generator in our family house of 4 households to energize the water and I can only find products costing thousands of francs when a propeller is enough to generate the vortex. I do not fully understand the price of these devices. Your idea seems so simple. But 7mm for the flow of a house seems a bit short to me. https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x9v1py

    1. Hello Pierre
      Thanks for sharing this video. My vortex is indeed planned for the output of an osmosis unit which is reduced. However, it is possible to print the vortex on a larger scale depending on the duct.

      1. If I understand you correctly, the same principle could apply to a small building by simply increasing the diameter of the tube?
        How do you explain that a system apparently as simple as the one we see on the Weber video is marketed at such high prices?
        A simple spiral seems to allow the creation of a vortex over long distances.
        One could also imagine a system of suction rather than propulsion which would allow an increase in the power of the vortex.

    1. Hello Eric
      The printed vortex is a rigid sheath in which I put the flexible white hose of the osmosis unit. The material does not matter, for my part, I used PLA.

  2. Thank you for the return (I did not understand the principle and thought that the water passed inside).

    One last question, if we put the vortex at the entrance of an “American fridge” (with carbon filter and small tank), do we keep the benefit of the vortex or is it canceled?
