The Pacific Sands Hose Filter is a combination of granular activated carbon (GAC) and a reduction/oxidation media that is classified by the EPA as a bacteriostatic. The combined media reduces or eliminates these contaminants:

Heavy metals:

Mercury

Lead

Iron

Copper

Cadmium

Barium

Chromium VI

Chromium III

Selenium

Other Contaminants:

Chlorine and its byproducts (THM’s)

Volatile Organic Contaminates (VOC’s)

Arsenic

Endrin

Lindane

Methoxychlor

Toxaphene

Silvex

The Pacific Sands Hose Filter has been tested to applicable NSF 42 & 53 standards by an independent lab to reduce and/or eliminate all contaminants listed. There are hundreds of other contaminants that the filter reduces and/or eliminates.

Calcite / Calcium

Aragonite

Calcites and lime/scale:

The Pacific Sands Hose Filter alters the molecular structure of calcite which inhibits its clinging capability. Calcium ions are removed from the water which changes calcite lime/scale deposits into aragonite. This alteration causes the lime/scale to remain suspended in the water where it cannot cling to equipment.

Materials:

All materials used in the Pacific Sands Hose Filter are approved by the FDA for contact with foodstuffs including potable water. All thermoplastic/thermoset plastics used comply with the NSF standard 14.
