Best of all, the Ionic Adsorption Micron Filters used in the Aqua•FreTM Water Pitcher are the most laboratory tested filters ever produced. The unique blend of media used in each filter remove up to 99.8% of all pollutants and contaminants found in any fresh water supply. The filters remove not only chlorine, bad taste, sediment and odor – they also remove pathogens, such as Giardia, Cryptosporidium and E-Coli bacteria and other cysts and spores – chemicals such as PCB’s, herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, DDT, THM’s, detergents and other organic compounds – and inorganics and heavy metals such as lead, mercury, aluminum, asbestos, cadmium, copper, anthrax and more.
Porous-plastic micron-filter removes up to 99.8% of all contaminants and pollutants including Giardia and Cryptosporidium

The Regular filter removes up to 99.99% of chlorine, chemicals (VOCs), heavy metals and Radon 222. Removes up to 90% of fluoride. Since it is more open in porosity, it does not remove giardia, cryptosporidium or E-Coli. It is designed to be used as a drinking water filter for use with chlorinated municipal water and as a bottled water replacement.
The Radiological filter removes the four basic zones of contamination: Aesthetic (Chlorine, taste and odor),Chemicals (from Industry and Agriculture), Dissolved Solids (heavy metals such as lead, mercury, Chromium 6) and up to 99.99% of Radiological Contaminants such as Gross Beta, Radon 222, Radium 226, Plutonium, Uranium, Cesium 134 and 137. The Radiological filters are designed to be used on a chlorinated or disinfected water supply only and not intended to be used with water from private wells, rivers, lakes, streams or the ocean. Removes up to 90% of Fluoride.
