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 can reduce or eliminates these contaminants:
There are hundreds of other contaminants that the ecoGeeks Hose 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.
