The Aquagear filter is made of a proprietary blend of filter media that works like a magnet to draw in and trap contaminants instantly. Aquagear water filters are made out of activated carbon and a formulation of ion exchange materials. All Aquagear water filters are made out of the following materials here in the USA:
ACTIVATED COCONUT CARBON:
Absorbent carbon derived from coconut shells removes organic compounds and pollutants from water. As contaminated water passes through the Aquagear water filter, absorbent carbon media traps waterborne pollutants. These toxins include disinfectants like chlorine.
PROPRIETARY BLEND OF ION EXCHANGE MEDIA:
A blend of proprietary media bonded in a matrix effectively removes dozens of health-related contaminants like lead and other heavy metals using adsorption, absorption, chemical bonding, and depth filtration.
