Whether at home or at work, a water filtration system from Elua delivers a lower cost per litre than any brand of bottled water without sacrificing quality or taste.

4. What does Elua mean?
Elua is a unique name that came about after hours and hours of brainstorming, word games and more than a few invoices from very expensive trademark lawyers. We've since discovered references to the word Elua in a few place names in Hawaii, a video game character and even a few first names in certain cultures but none have any connection to our Elua. However, if you live in Wailea Elua Village, Hawaii we'd love to come and visit!
5. What is the difference between bottled water and “Elua” water?
Bottled water is a classification that includes a wide variety of water sources and even treatments. Some types of bottled water are sourced from natural springs or aquifers and have minimal treatment before bottling while many leading brands of bottled water are sourced from municipal water sources and undergo a wide range of treatments depending on the bottler. While pure at the source, almost all PET packaged bottled water has been proven to contain contaminants like Antimony and endocrine disruptors that leach from the bottle itself.

“Elua” takes your municipal water and makes it even better by removing chemicals that your municipality is not capable of removing like Lead, Mercury, MTBE and VOCs like Benzene, adding a final barrier to microorganisms like Cryptosporidium, removing fine particulate picked up from aging distribution systems and removing the chlorine injected into the water at the water treatment plant.

At Elua, we think that the water produced by our customers is better than most brands of bottled water and far safer than standard municipal water, especially when "better" is measured by environmental responsibility, social responsibility, cost and convenience.
6. Are there any contracts or commitments associated with Elua’s products or services?
No, there are no commitments and no contracts with Elua.
7. Can I install any of the water filtration systems available from Elua myself?
Yes, by all means! Installation is quick and easy for most DIY orientated individuals who are handy with basic tools. Tapping into an existing water line is a simple process and a wide variety of standard fittings and adapters are included with each product's installation kit including a very special gizmo called a saddle valve which allows you to tap into an existing copper water line with no cutting, torches or tools. Unlike reverse osmosis systems, the water filtration systems offered by Elua create no wastewater, do not require a drain connection and do not require wired power.
8. Do you offer an installation service?
We do not offer installation services but are more than happy to help you find a plumber or contractor in your area and support them with manuals, installation videos or answer any questions that they may have. Most plumbing only installations take less than an hour. If you choose to install the optional faucet and need assistance drilling through your sink or counter top it should take a qualified contractor less than 30 minutes.
9. How often do the water filters need to be changed and where do I get them from?
We offer a number of different water filtration systems and filter life varies by make, model and type of filtration.
