Seychelle ADV Filters are tested to remove up to 99.99% of the following zones of contamination:
Aesthetic contaminants: unpleasant taste, odors, cloudiness, silt and chlorine
Chemical contaminants: VOC’s, toxic chemicals, trihalomethanes, PFOA, PFOS, PCB’s, DDT, glyphosate, herbicides, detergents, pesticides, benzene, atrazine and many more
Inorganic contaminants: heavy metals, aluminum, asbestos, cadmium, chromium 6, copper, arsenic, nitrates & nitrites, lead, mercury, and up to 90% fluoride.
I purchased it for emergency situations so I haven’t used it yet. But my expectations are that it will prove to be every bit as good as my other Seychelle products.
It is the most compact and protective filter of all the similar products. Also, with all the contamination from old mines, in this part of SW Montana, it can be very dangerous to drink any water while hiking or camping. It's the best.
Love the filter especially for questionable water sources
