10 Stages of Protection Against Major Water Contaminants
- Stage 1 - 30 micron sponge filter. Traps larger solids (sediments) such as rust.
- Stage 2 - 8 oz. of KDF-55. KDF-55 is a patented alloy which removes free chlorine and some heavy metals, thereby prolonging the life of the filter and is an excellent Bacteriostat.
- Stage 3 - 10 micron felt pad which removes smaller floating solids and separates the layers, preserving their integrity.
- Stage 4 - 30 cubic inches of ultra fine mesh, superior coconut shell and granulated activated carbon. Granulated activated carbon has long been accepted by the E.P.A. and others as the premier, cost-effective way to remove chlorine, bad odors and color from drinking water. G.A.C. also removes organic contaminants such as pesticides, herbicides, arsenic, mercury and trihalomethanes - a cancer-causing organic pollutant.
- Stage 5 - 10 micron felt pad for fine sediment removal.
- Stage 6 - 7 cubic inches of ion exchange resin which removes lead to below minimum E.P.A. standards.
- Stage 7 - Additional 30 micron felt pad provides an extra buffer against floating sediment of any kind.
- Stage 8 - 7 cubic inch bed of G.A.C. which provides extra protection against cancer-causing organic pollutants.
- Stage 9 - 2 oz. of calcite which raises the water’s pH and lowers acidity. It also increases alkalinity, which many nutritionists recommend.
- Stage 10 - 1 micron absolute depth filter. A filter with a micron rating this small screens outcysts and protozoa, (including Giardia and Cryptosporidium), and gives the filtered water a sparkling clarity.

Chlorine gas was used extensively in WW1 as a chemical warfare agent. Today it is used in municipal water supplies to deliver water to our homes free of microscopic contaminants. However it serves no useful purpose on or in our bodies. New Wave designs, patents and manufactures water filters that remove harmful chlorine & other contaminants from shower, bath and drinking water at home and away from home.
