Seychelle Filter Types

Seychelle Filter Types



The Regular Filter removes up to 99.99% of aesthetics such as chlorine, sediment, dirt silt and sand; chemicals (VOCs) such as DDT, MTBE, Benzene, Chloroforms, Trihalomethanes (THM's); heavy metals such as Arsenic, Lead, Mercury, Copper, Zinc, Aluminum and Chromium 6; and Radon 222. It removes up to 90% of fluoride. It is designed to be used as a drinking water filter for use with chlorinated municipal water and as a replacement for bottled water. Since the regular filter is more open in porosity, it does not remove giardia, cryptosporidium or E-Coli.  

The Standard Filter is ideal for any indoor or outdoor use; like traveling, hiking, biking, camping, fishing, or for emergency purposes. It can be used with tap water, rainwater, rivers, streams, or even lakes (excluding salt water). The Standard Filter is designed to be used with water that is non-turbid and non-stagnant. It removes up to 99.99% of contaminants like the Regular Filter, along with Biologicals, such as Giardia, and Cryptosporidium. Removes up to 90% of fluoride.

The Advanced Filter is made of the same media as the Standard filter with the addition of EPA approved iodinated resin (EPA Reg #: 35917-2), which has been proven effective in the removal of bacteria and virus up to six logs (99.9999%). Removes up to 90% of fluoride. It can be used in extreme conditions; with turbid and stagnant water; and is critical for emergencies and disasters (such as the events that occurred in the US with Katrina and the earthquake in Haiti.) *The filtration element has been impregnated with a proprietary anion that removes both Iodine and Iodide. 

The Radiological Filter removes the contaminants listed under the Regular filter as well as up to 99.99% of Radiological Contaminants, such as Gross Beta, Radon 222, Alpha Radium 226, Plutonium, Uranium, Cesium 134 and 137. It removes up to 90% of fluoride and is designed to be used with chlorinated municipal water. 

The Extreme Filter removes up to 99.99% of Chlorine, Chemicals (VOC’s), Heavy Metals and Radiological Contaminants.  It removes up to 99.9999% of Bacteria and Virus and up to 99.9% of Giardia and Cryptosporidium.  The Extreme filters are perfect when using water of an unknown quality.  The Extreme Filter is crucial for emergency preparedness, when survival may be threatened by events such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires, radiological contamination, and/or terrorism.  

The pH Enhanced Filter removes all the contaminants listed under the Regular filter. The new filter, incorporates proprietary medias and enhances the alkalinity (pH) of drinking water sources up to 9.0. Results may vary, depending on your source water. Since it is more open in porosity, it does not remove giardia, cryptosporidium, virus, or bacteria. It is designed as a bottled water replacement and for those who value the benefits of alkaline filtered water.  The pH Enhanced Filter is to be used with chlorinated municipal water.
