What is Tri Stage Filtration?
Tri Stage Filtration is a unique process that combines 3 stages:
1. Water is treated by KDF-55 media for bacteriostatic and scale control.
2. A Micro-Filger-Wrap evenly traps sediment particles while maintaining overall flow rates.
3. Water flows through a carbon block filter.
What is Quad Stage Filtration?
Quad Stage Filtration utilizes the same 3 elements as Tri Stage and goes one step further.
4. A patented 0.2 micron pharmaceutical grade membrane.
What is IMPACT Technology?
Integrated Membrane Pre-Activated Carbon Technology is what allows our BG-12000 to offer some of the finest in filter technology. Previously found exclusively within the pharmaceutical and wine making industries, IMPACT technology is used in our Quad Stage Filtrationprocess.
What’s a Cyst?
A cyst is the survivable form that parasites take on when they leave the host (you, me, your dog, etc…). The parasite goes dormant and grows a thick covering like an egg which allows it to survive in water or soil for long periods of time, and even allows it to survive the chlorine-based disinfectants typically used by the water treatment industry. The most common types of cyst that cause disease in humans are Giardia and Cryptosporidium.
These intestinal parasite cysts “hatch” when ingested by humans and cause intestinal disease. The diseases are not life threatening if treated, but can be dangerous to people with weakened immune systems.

What are the risks of tap water ?
Due to added chlorine into water for sterilization, which produced “trihalomethanes carcinogen” “Trihalomethanes” may cause a variety of cancers such as: colon cancer, stomach cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, breast cancer, miscarriage and teratogenic and so on. Using Body Glove water filter system can effectively reduce “trihalomethanes”, protect your family’s health.
