The Greatest Reduction Per Contaminant in the Industry.

aquagear® water filters are made using electro-magnetically charged medias that attract different contaminants in your water like chemicals and heavy metals. As water passes through the porous body of the water filter, these impurities are drawn to the surface walls of the filter where they remain trapped.

See details below for more information on each aquagear® water filter:

Tap Water Filters

The AquaGear Tap Water Filter removes up to 99.99% of tap water contaminants. This includes fluoride, chlorine, pesticides, trace pharmaceuticals and other known menaces of municipal tap water. The straw's patented filtration technology meets and exceeds NSF Standards 42 and 53 for contaminant reduction. This means that it is certified to make water odorless and fresh-tasting, as well as remove a variety of health-related contaminants like VOCs and MTBEs. Better still, it does all this without removing health-essential minerals from the water.

Advanced Water Purifiers

The patented filter in the Advanced Purification Straw has been certified to NSF standards to remove up to 99.9999% of fresh water contaminants, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium, and meets and exceeds NSF standards 42 and 53. NSF 42 means that the Advanced Filtration Straw removes aesthetic contaminants like taste, odor and visible particles. More importantly, NSF 53 ensures that it also effectively removes harmful microbiological contaminants.

The AFS has also been tested to remove: 99.9999% of bacteria, cysts and viruses, chlorine (99.58%), heavy metals, including arsenic, copper, lead, mercury, aluminium, cadmium (97.5%), iodine (91.67%). It also removes Endrin, DDD, DDT, Lindane, Heptachlor, PCB's, Altrazine, Simazine, Nitrite, Bromodichloromethane, Bromoform, Benzene, Dibromochloromethae, Carbon Tetrachloride, Ethyl Benzene, Methyl Tert Butyl Ether, Trichloroethane, Toluene, Xylene, Giardia, Crytoporidium, E. Coli, E. Faecalis, F+RNA.

Radiological Water Filters

The AquaGear Radiological Water Filter has been designed to remove radiological contaminants from fresh water supplies. This product has been designed as an emergency preparedness tool for communities with high risk for long-term exposure to nuclear waste during periods following a natural disaster.

The R1 Radiological Media is designed to reduce radiological contaminants from fresh water supplies, and is the only NELAC tested and approved media for the 100% removal of Gross Beta Particles, Radon 222, Radium, Plutonium, Uranium, Strontium, Cesium 137, and Radioactive Iodine 131.

All aquagear® water filters utilize Revolve® Filtration Technology, the worlds most advanced portable water filters. aquagear water filtration products have been tested around the world for their efficacy, and they have been proven to offer the greatest reduction per contaminant in the industry.
