Choosing your Seychelle water filter is easy! Below you will find descriptions of the different water filters that we offer:
Over our 25 years in the industry, Seychelle has developed a filter for virtually every need. Whether you're looking for alkaline water at home and on the go, or you're travelling abroad, heading to the backcountry on a camping trip, or putting together your family's emergency kit and need a more robust solution, we've got you covered.
EVERYDAY ALKALINE FILTER
Make tap water better with our Alkaline pitchers and bottles. The Alkaline filter both naturally alkalizes and effectively filters up to 99.9% of contaminants from any potable tap water source—like sinks, faucets, and drinking fountains.
The filter uses healthy trace minerals to naturally increase the pH of your water up to 9.5, while also removing (PFOAs, PFASs), heavy metals (lead and mercury), industrial pollutants (chromium 6), disinfectants (chlorine, chloramines), and VOCs (trihalomethanes, MTBE).
Most Americans are exposed to these contaminants through their tap water, even if they don't know it. Most other filters are not designed to remove them, despite how dangerous—and common—the EPA has admitted they are. You can find the latest research about these emerging contaminants and their health effects on our blog. Every Seychelle filter type is tested to remove these tap water contaminants, so no matter what filter you buy from us, you're protected.
For hikers, campers, international travelers, missionaries, and emergency prep kits, Seychelle provides the most robust portable filtration products in the industry. Our Advanced filter removes 99.9999% of bacteria and virus, and 99.99% of cryptosporidium and giardia. With an Advanced bottles or pump, you can safely filter water from lakes, rivers, streams, and rainwater, as well untreated local water supplies around the world. It should not be used in stagnant water, or with salt water.
The Advanced filter is also an essential part of your emergency preparedness kit. In the event of a no-notice emergency, or a boil water notice, the Advanced filter can be used to make microbiologically unsafe water safe and drinkable.
For additional protection against radiological contaminants, we recommend our Radiological filter, which removes gross beta, radon 222, alpha radium 226, plutonium, uranium, cesium 134 and 137. This is also an essential emergency preparedness filter, in the event of a nuclear disaster leading to radioactivity in drinking water (for example, the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan). With over 170 million Americans already drinking radioactive tap water, it's important to have this filter in your home. Find out more here on our blog.
