Which contaminants does the bottle filter remove?
Our filtration technology removes over 230 contaminants. We use an independent, EPA-certified lab to rigorously test our filters to NSF standards. Here are just a few of the more notorious contaminants this filter removes:
- Fluoride: removed at a rate of up to 99.9%. It is difficult to remove once it’s added into the tap water and typical carbon-block style filters don’t have fluoride removal capabilities. For that reason we specially formulated our technology so fluoride removal is standard with every filter.
- Glyphosate: The active ingredient in Roundup® weed killer. Our filters remove 99.9% of this highly controversial chemical.
- Lead: Even though it’s been widely banned due to its highly poisonous nature, lead pipes remain in use across all 50 states. Lead is harmful to human health even at low exposure levels and accumulates in the body over time. Removed at a rate of 99.9%.
- Chlorine: While chlorine is effective at reducing the spread of infectious waterborne diseases, it reacts with naturally-occurring materials in water to form dangerous chemical byproducts that threaten your health. Removed at a rate of 99.9%.
We are all about transparency so we post our full test results on our Test Results Page. It shows the name of the particular contaminant, the concentration before filtration, the concentration after filtration, and the percentage removed.
