The unique purifier incorporates MAD (MechanicallyAdvancedDisinfection) technology thateliminates >99.9999% bacteria, 99.999% viruses, >99.99% larger pathogens, >99.9% of many chemicals, heavy metals, dirt and odour.
In testing to NSF Ansi 42 and 53 standards most contaminantsdemonstrated a reduction greater than 99.9%.Including arsenic 3&5, cadmium, mercury, 4,4 DDT, Aldrin, Dieldrin, Glyphosate, PCBs, Benzene, Toluene and Vinyl Chloride. Fluoride tested to NSF 53 standards was reduced by 95%.
Why is chemical reduction important to include in your choice of microbiological water purifier?In most, if not in all developing countries and even some best known developed countries, fresh water sources can be largely contaminated by industrial waste being dumped directly into rivers and streams. An estimated half million tons of PCBs were discharged into the environment during the 20th century. Another kind of toxic pollution comes from heavy metals,such as lead, cadmium, and mercury which can come from many sources including old batteries, old plastic water bottles, and thousands of other toxic pollutants. The effects will be felt for many decades if not centuries until they break down fully into the environment. PCBs have even been found in birds and fish in the Arctic. They were carried there through the oceans, thousands of miles from where they originally entered the environment.
