MICROBIOLOGICAL PERFORMANCE

Uniquely removes viruses from real world, organic-laden water in gravity-fed situations without the use of power, pressurized pumping, or chemicals!

AquaGuidance has developed the world’s first gravity-fed water filtration media (patents pending) capable of removing harmful live viruses in the presence of organic acids, downstream of common cyst and bacteria gravity-flow filters, such as ceramics or hollow fiber membranes, in order to pass full NSF/ANSI Protocol P231-2003 requirements without the use of chemicals, power, or pressure.

Our filters have been tested by a very well respected, independent third-party microbiological lab, with close connections to the US military, which has attested to successfully passing microbiological purifier NSF/ANSI P231 testing, demonstrating greater than required 4-log (99.99%) virus reduction.

  • Does not need chemicals
    • No more guessing about variable chemical dosage challenges
    • No objectionable taste and odor
    • No shelf-life limitation or special packaging of chemicals
    • No carcinogenic disinfection by-products such as Trihalomethanes (THMs) and Haloacetic acids (HAAs)
  • Does not need power, or piped pressure, or pumping
  • Works in GTW3 challenge water with humic acid
  • We have also developed a clean water (GTW1) version for use in second-world, emerging middle-class domestic settings, offering higher flow rates
  • Also reduces lead, other heavy metals, chlorine and chloramine. (More testing is needed to fully quantify these performance claims.)
