What Are Bacteria and Viruses?
We know bacteria and viruses can make you sick, but what are they, exactly?
Bacteria are microscopic organisms that can be found in the air, in the water, and on the land. Although some bacteria are actually beneficial, others can cause serious illness. These harmful bacteria are known as pathogenic bacteria.
A virus is a type of microscopic infectious organism that consists of an acidic nucleus in a protein shell. Viruses that infect humans and cause disease are called enteric viruses, and included such viruses as hepatitis A, rotavirus, and adenovirus.
How Does Multipure Protect You
From Bacteria and Viruses?
Although the core of our drinking water systems' incredible performance is our exceptional solid carbon block filter, the key to bacteria and virus removal is through our Aqualuxe drinking water system and our proprietary PureBlock technology. This powerful additional layer of protection offers 6-factor removal of bacteria (99.9999% removal) and 4-factor virus removal (99.99% removal) from water. In addition, the filter utilizes mechanical filtration, physiochemical adsorption, and electrokinetic adsorption to reduce the presence of other harmful chemicals and contaminants.
Multipure's Aqualuxe is NSF-certified according to NSF/ANSI Standards 42 (Aesthetic Effects), 53 (Health Effects), 401 (Emerging Contaminants), and Protocol P231 (Microbiological Purifier) for the reduction of dozens of contaminants. NSF Certification is a very high standard of quality, so you can be confident that our filters do exactly what we say they do.
Why Do I Need to Remove Bacteria
and Viruses From My Water?
While some bacteria and some viruses can be benign, many bacteria and viruses in your drinking water can be very dangerous. Symptoms from exposure to harmful bacteria and viruses can include gastrointestinal issues, meningitis, hepatitis, and other very serious diseases. These are not organisms you would want contaminating the water you use to drink, prepare food, and cook with.
