PURESTART ™ is an exclusive patent-pending filtration technology based on the highest grades of activated carbon. PURESTART ™ removes tannins, nitrates, chlorine, pharmaceuticals, fertilizers, pesticides, as well as discoloration and odors caused by a variety of organic contaminants. All water treatment plants add some form of chlorine to help sanitize the water and minimize the growth of water pathogens. Although useful for these purposes, chlorine can react with organic contaminants in the water. These reactions can form several potentially carcinogenic compounds which are then accumulated in our bodies. These chlorinated chemicals also account for bad taste and odor.
It has also been reported by the EPA and public health departments that residual organic pesticides, BPA, pharmaceuticals and industrial cleaning solvents have been found in numerous water sources. Our PURESTART ™ media greatly reduces these contaminants.
