With all the new gear and gadgets that come and go, it takes a pretty innovative idea to really catch our attention. With application in back-country hunting, hiking, biking, and emergency preparedness (to name a few), this one really jumped out!
The concept of water filtration isn’t new. Any of us who have ventured out for overnight hiking or hunting trips have undoubtedly taken forethought of what we would do for a water supply. Aside from packing 10 pounds of water per day, the only realistic option is to bring iodine tablets and/or a water filter of some kind. Both have their drawbacks…tablets leave water tasting less-than-desirable and take up to 30 minutes to be effective. Pump-style water filters are bulky, spendy, and have hoses and accessories that seem to get misplaced or damaged.
The idea of carrying a water bottle with a built-in filtration system isn’t entirely new either. The level of quality of a water filtration bottle, however, has not been accomplished to the same degree as the new Water Filtration Bottles and Straws being produced by Urban Pipeline. Their Ionic Adsorption Micron Filters are the most laboratory and field-tested of their kind in the world using EPA/ANSI protocols and NSF Standards 42 and 53. They are the only personal water filtration system capable of up to 99.99% reduction in all four areas of contamination (aesthetic, microbiological, chemical, and dissolved solids)! With these handy water bottles, you can forget about the worries of water in the backcountry or in emergency situations, and count on Urban Pipeline’s Advanced Filters to protect you from every contaminant and bacteria imagineable!
The filtration system begins with a standard filter that is effective in removing 99.99% of contaminants and pollutants found in fresh water including chlorine, sediment and dirt, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, E-Coli Bacteria, DDT, MTBE, Benzene, Chloroforms (THM’S), Detergents, Pesticides, and Dissolved Solids (Heavy metals) such as Arsenic, Lead, Mercury, Copper, Zinc, Aluminum and Chromium 6, and much more. But it doesn’t stop there…the addition of an EPA-approved iodinated resin, which has been proven effective in the removal of bacteria and virus to six logs (99.9999%), takes this filter to the next level and ensures bacteria and viruses won’t make it into your drinking water.
As if the level of filtration provided thus far wasn’t more than adequate, the Urban Pipeline bottles and straws also have an antimicrobial media molecuraly bonded to the filters which act as a “pincushion” of molecules that disrupt and rupture the cell structures of waterborne micro-organisms. It is safe, non-toxic, non-leaching, EPA, FDA and NSF approved, and reduces bacteria to four logs, or 99.99%. Additionally, it is colorless, tasteless, natural and odorless, and has an indefinite shelf life!
The filters are good for up to 100 gallons of water filtration, depending, of course, on the amount of contaminents in the original water. Maximum filtering capability will gradually diminish and when the water flow is too low, it’s time to replace the system. The filters will not wear out and will not allow contaminants through, even after extended use.
How the filter works
Through medical technology, the filter was created using a uniform 2-micron absolute pore size for the assured reduction and removal of the above contaminants. The high-tech porous plastic micro-filter is impregnated with both the finest granulated-activated coconut Carbon available and exclusive adsorbing media for superior analyte removal capability. In addition, the controlled 2-micron filter contains thousands of Omni-directional pores that result in a “tortuous path” for superior analyte reduction. The exclusive Ionic-Adsorption Micro-Filtration coordinates all processes of contaminant reduction by Adsorption, Absorption, Chemical bonding, Chelation, and Depth filtration.
All Urban Pipeline products are BPA free, non-toxic and do not leach, and use only FDA approved # 4 and # 5 plastics and food grade materials.
Water filtration products are tested by independent laboratories in the U.S. to verify exact capabilities and performance. All Urban Pipeline filters are extensively tested by only the highest quality US-approved laboratories certified to test under the strictest EPA, ANSI & NSF standard methods and protocol. The gallon volume of filtration capacity is tested to NSF standards 42 & 53. In addition, the filters have been tested in sixteen (16) foreign countries. All five areas of contamination “A,B,C,D and R” are tested.
