STAGE 1 – 5 MICRON
This high capacity filter removes dust, particulates, and rust sediments measuring over 5 microns from the water. Made of 100% pure polypropylene fibers.
STAGE 2, 3 – KDF + CARBON
KDF 55: Increases life of activated carbon by 4-5 times. Reduces chlorine, heavy metals, and bacteria. GAC CARBON: Reduces turbidity, chlorine, chloramines, organic contaminates, pesticides, and chemicals.
STAGE 4 – HIGH EFFICENCY REVERSE OSMOSIS MEMBRANE
Utilizing an ECO friendly 1:1 waste to recovery process, this stage removes undesirable contaminants and pollutants down to .001 microns in size (by comparison, the size of most bacteria is about .5 microns / virus about .05 microns). However, RO does not remove acids (which are liquids and gasses) i.e. sulfuric and nitric acids (acid rain), hydrofluorosilicic acid (industrial waste fluoride), hypochlorous and hydrochloric acids (chlorine reactions), haloacetic acids (chlorine and bromine reactions). If you do not remove the acids, you will drink them. NOT GOOD!
STAGE 5, 6 – DUAL DEIONIZATION
Two unique proprietary laboratory grade Cation and Anion resin filters remove the remaining trace contaminants (i.e. heavy metals) as well as all the invasive bad acids that pass-through STAGE 4.
STAGE 7 – REMINERALIZATION
In this stage the number of beneficial ions is increased in the water. This results in a high pH and a low controlled TDS comprised of magnesium bicarbonate with traces* of calcium and sodium bicarbonate, as well as silica and chloride.
STAGE 8 – COCONUT CARBON
Enhances flavor and removes odors while polishing the water to perfection. This carbon filter is made from coconut shell that has undergone a steam activation process to create its activated carbon form with micro-pores. During activation, it creates millions of pores at the surface of the carbon, thus increasing the total surface area.
STAGE 9, 10 – RESTRUCTURING + RECHARGING
In this final stage the water is run over lodestones and quartz crystals simulating the properties of a living stream. This naturally restructures, recharges, and reprograms what was once damaged water into the purest water on planet Earth since The Industrial Revolution.
*Trace minerals as well as their values will vary with various source water chemistry.
