The ecoGeeks All Purpose Home and Garden Hose Filter
Initially developed in 2004 by ecoGeeks founder, Mick Wynhoff as a solution to provide clean startup water for hot tubs and swimming pools, the ecoGeeks hose filter has evolved into a perfect solution for gardeners, auto enthusiasts, pet owners, and anyone concerned with the quality of their outdoor water. (Great for kids who like to drink out of hoses!)

The ecoGeeks 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:
Chlorine and its byproducts (THM’s)
Volatile Organic Contaminates (VOC’s)
Hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg smell)
The ecoGeeks 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.
Calcites and lime/scale:
The ecoGeeks 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.
All materials used in the ecoGeeks 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.
