Lead Giardia Cryptosporidium Floating Solids Asbestos Pesticides Herbicides Chlorine Trihalomethanes PBC's Organic Arsenic and Mercury...And it is Bacteriostatic! Stage 1: A 30 micron filter pad. -- Traps larger solids (sediments) such as rust. Stage 2: 8 ounces of KDF-55 this is a patented alloy that removes free chlorine and some heavy metals. -- It prolongs the life of the filter and is an excellent Bacteriostat. Stage 3: A 10 micron filter pad. -- Removes smaller floating solids and separates the layers to preserve their integrity. Stage 4: 30 cubic inches of ultra fine mesh coconut shell activated carbon. -- Carbon has long been accepted by the EPA and other water experts as the premier cost effective way to remove chlorine bad odor and color from drinking water. Carbon also removes other organic contaminants such as pesticides herbicides organic arsenic and mercury and trihalomethanes. Stage 5: 1 10 micron filter pad. -- For fine sediment removal. Stage 6: 1.3 oz. of Cation exchange resin. -- This resin has an exceptional affinity for lead and therefore removes lead to below minimum standards.

G.A.C. also removes organic contaminants such as pesticides herbicides and trihalomethanes. Stage 9: 2 oz. of calcite. -- Calcite balances the water's pH to neutral. When the water is highly acidic calcite lowers the acidity and increases alkalinity which many nutritionists recommend. When the water is too alkaline calcite lowers the pH to neutral. Stage 10: a one micron filter -- Removes any remaining floating particles and creates a solid barrier against organisms larger than 1 micron such as cysts and protozoa (causes giardia and cryptosporidium) and gives the filtered water a sparkling clarity.
