Description

Show Description

Replacement Microbiological Filter featuring new sintered polymer technology. Most filtration for waterborne parasites use a membrane to screen out the micro-organism. This membrane is rated by micron size. One micron is 1/1,000 of a millimeter; giardia is about 5 to 10 microns in size. Cryptosporidium is a tubular-shaped cyst that measures on average 3 microns by 6 microns long. This new method has been developed which falls under the heading: Tortuosity. Like its name implies, the removal of waterborne parasites is accomplished by creating a path so tortuous the microorganism becomes trapped.

  • Performance: removes 99.9% or greater of cryptosporidium and giardia lambia.
  • Removes sediment, organic debris, and chlorine taste.
  • Each filter will treat up to 200 refills, 130L (depending on water quality).
  • Pristine Water Treatment may also be added to the water for treatment against bacteria and viruses.

Filter type

Water can be treated using various types of filters, chemicals or non-chemical purification methods, or a combination. Filters on their own will not remove viruses as they are too small.

Sintered polymer technology
Effective against protozoa

Protozoa are larger than one micron and include cryptosporidium and giardia.

Yes
Effective against viruses

Most viruses are in the 1.0 micron size range, but they can be as small as 0.002 microns.

No
Effective against particulate

Particulate consists of very small bits and pieces such as dirt or bugs.

Yes
Effective against bacteria

Bacteria can cause illnesses such as diarrhea and dysentery and are about 1.0 micron in size, although some can be as small as 0.2 microns.
