Developed by NASA to far exceed the contaminant removal abilities of any other filter, whilst leaving in beneficial minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium. Having to develop a filtration media capable of protecting against potential radioactive contamination and in emergencies for astronauts to produce potable water from urine, has given the AQUASPACE unique features for the removal of organic and inorganic chemicals, heavy metals, nitrates, herbicides, pesticides and many other contaminates. NASA regards this filter as one of the most successful adaptations of space age technology to benefit every day human life. One gram of the AQUASPACE media has a surface area of 2000 sq metres, hence its superior absorption capabilities. Healthy, good tasting water for drinking, cooking, making ice, tea and coffee for under 3 cents a litre.
When tested by an independent lab in the USA, Washington DC water, (Reportedly contaminated with lead and toxic chemicals) after being filtered through an AQUASPACE cartridge was shown to have comparable purity and taste characteristics when compared with Evian ® Bottled water
3800 litres or 12 month life (When protected by a pre filter).
