Puritii Water Filter FAQs
Q: How does the filter work?
A: Puritii™ has eliminated the need for bottled tap water. Puritii features a unique, patented AquaSpear™ technology that suppresses the growth of bacteria, algae, fungus, mold and mildew within the filter media. Puritii’s patent-pending ZeoSleeve™ has been treated with microspears in a patented process that pierce the cell membranes of waterborne organisms on contact.
Q: Does our filter meet NSF standards?
A: Yes! In fact, the Puritii filtering power is 100x greater than NSF standards.
NSF requires chlorine to be removed at >50% removal with a single pass when flowing at 200/mL/min. and a starting concentration of >2ppm chlorine. The Puritii Filter accomplishes this flowing at 500mL/min. and does it for 2X the rated capacity of the filter.
Q: What does the filter remove?
Bacteria Removal: 99.9999% (including E. coli, Klebsiella, Vibrio cholerae and many more)
Virus Removal: 99.99% (including coronavirus, hepatitis A virus (HAV), poliovirus, and polyomavirus)
Protozoa Removal: 99.99% (including Cyclospora cayetanensis, Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts), and Giardia lamblia)
Parasites Removal: 99.99% (including Ascaris lumbricoides, Schistosoma mansoni, Dracunculus medinensis, and many more)
Chemical Reduction: Activated coconut shell carbon reduces chemical residue such as: waterborne chemicals, pesticides, VOCs, chemical pollutants, radioactive substances, medical residues, and heavy metals
Q: Why should I use a filter when I have bottled water?
A: While most people think drinking water from the tap is safe, they don’t realize that bacteria and viruses can be swimming in your drinking glass, and traces of toxic metals and industrial contaminants are found in nearly every city water system. The laws for monitoring US tap water have not been updated for over 40 years, and the government requires testing for only 91 out of thousands of contaminants known to be dangerous.
Q: Isn't tap water safe to drink?
A: Did you know that your neighbor's prescriptions could be coming out of your kitchen tap? Many drugs, such as antibiotics and birth control medications pass virtually unchanged through the human body and end up back in our water supplies. Researchers routinely find dozens of pharmaceuticals in tap water samples, and even in our rivers and lakes, including painkillers, antidepressants, 12 and even worse drugs, like methamphetamines and cocaine.

Q: It is hard for me to suck water through my bottle, is this normal?
A: Because the Puritii filter is such a high power filter, it is normal to have to use some sucking power to get water up through the bottle. However, if it seems unusually hard to get water through, please don't hesitate to contact our support team at 1-855-462-7449 between 8:00am-6:00pm MST.
Q: How long does the filter last?
A: The lifespan of the Puritii filter varies depending on how much it is used. On average, our long-lasting filters remain effective for up to 3 months of daily use, or approximately 300 bottles of water, or 50 gallons of water.
Q: What is the pH level of water after filtering?
A: Puritii filters do not affect pH levels.
Q: Are the water filters recyclable?
A: While our filters are not recyclable, they save landfills from approximately 300 plastic water bottles per unit. Both Puritii bottles are reusable and recyclable.
Q: Can I filter ocean water?
A: The Puritii filter was specifically designed to filter fresh water, not salt water.
Q: Does Puritii produce "Zero Water?"
A: Zero Water is double distilled water that no longer contains useful minerals. Distilled water is also known as "hungry water" in that it attracts minerals from the body to itself, a process known as chelation, and is harmful for the body. Once the water passes through the kidneys, some of these vital nutrients are expelled and long-term use can result in damaging mineral deficiency. While Puritii removes harmful chemicals, toxins, heavy metals, and volatile organic compounds, it does not remove these essential minerals and it therefore does not produce what is known as "Zero Water."
Q: What can I filter through my Puritii water bottle?
A: Puritii is specifically designed to filter unwanted substances from fresh water sources. It is not meant to filter other liquids, such as coffee, soda, tea, salt water, juice, etc.
Q: After filtering, a test revealed there are still substances in my water. Why is this?
A: Our filters work to remove harmful substances like toxins and chemicals, while leaving behind beneficial minerals for optimal health. These minerals are what is showing up on your test.
Q: How much water does each bottle hold with the filter in place?
A: The stainless steel bottle holds 16 ounces with the filter in, whereas the plastic bottle holds 20 ounces with the filter in place.
