Systems certified for cysts reduction can be used on disinfected water that may contain filterable cysts. EPA establishment # 070595-CT-001. Conforms to NSF/ANSI 53 for VOC reduction.

Well water application should have a comprehensive well analysis confirming properly disinfected and potable water prior to use of the body glove system.

How do I know when it’s time to replace my filter?

All of our water filter systems come equipped with a digital system, the Water, Inc. filter change indicator, which will alert you when your filter needs replacing. The filter needs to be replaced annually or sooner if the flow rate becomes slow. Capacity can vary based on local water conditions.

Body Glove water filtration capacity and performance is dependent on incoming water conditions. The water filter system must be maintained according to the manufacturer’s instructions in addition to the replacement of filtration cartridges.

  • Body Glove Filtration Head Unit
  • Digital Water, Inc. filter change indicator
  • Digital Flow Meter (BG 12000 only)

What is Tri Stage Filtration?

Tri Stage Filtration is a unique process that combines 3 stages:
1. Water is treated by KDF-55 media for bacteriostatic and scale control.
2. A Micro-Filger-Wrap evenly traps sediment particles while maintaining overall flow rates.
3. Water flows through a carbon block filter.

What is Quad Stage Filtration?

Quad Stage Filtration utilizes the same 3 elements as Tri Stage and goes one step further.
4. A patented 0.2 micron pharmaceutical grade membrane.

What is IMPACT Technology?

Integrated Membrane Pre-Activated Carbon Technology is what allows our BG-12000 to offer some of the finest in filter technology. Previously found exclusively within the pharmaceutical and wine making industries, IMPACT technology is used in our Quad Stage Filtration process.
