filters to treat the drinking water. First, a 5-micron, Sediment Filter (Stage 1) traps
sediment and solid particle matter. Then, a Carbon Block Filter (Stage 2) traps
contaminants as small as one micron. The 1-micron filter used by innowave has been
tested and certified by WQA according to NSF/ANSI Standard 53: Drinking Water Treatment
Units - Health Effects for the reduction of at least 90% of lead and 99.99% of cysts.
The 1-micron Granular Activated Carbon (Stage 3) filters have also been tested and certified
to NSF/ANSI Standard 42: Aesthetic Effects for the improvement of taste and odor and
aesthetic chlorine reduction.

pesticides, benzene, petro-chemicals, PCB’s, and defoliants.
