Toobi is a pre-filter which is installed at the main water input to the home. It removes particles greater than 50 micrometres in size. The body is made of lead-free brass and thus prevents secondary contamination. The sustainable water filter is corrosion-resistant and does not need to be changed. To clean the filter, it is sufficient to rotate the knob to remove sediment. The pattern of the brass body is inspired from flowing water.
