Hi friends,

Meet the Fil₂R case and pod. The reusable case is a water filter that is compatible with your existing water pitcher. Every two months you keep your Fil₂R case and replace a pod of activated carbon that is made of natural coconute shells and is biodegradeable.

We are excited to share our reusable water filters meet NSF/ANSI 42 standards to reduce aesthetic impurities such as chlorine and taste/odor. Our reusable Fil₂R passed a water filtration test for NSF/ANSI 42 standards by a third party certifier (IAPMO). This means that after rigorous testing in a laboratory our filters do in fact reduce chlorine from tap water according to NSF/ANSI standards (like most filters on the market). This is something we already knew but we finally had our filter case and pod tested by a third party to confirm our findings.

Please understand, this does not mean we have the NSF/ANSI certification. We hope to do so in the future when we obtain the funds to obtain the pricey certification. 

NSF/ANSI 42 standards are outlined below:

  • NSF/ANSI 42
    Filters are certified to reduce aesthetic impurities such as chlorine and taste/odor. These can be point-of-use (under the sink, water pitcher, etc.) or point-of-entry (whole house) treatment systems (more info here).

Natural coconut shells are the number one ingredient in our Fil₂R pods. The coconut shells are heated to a high temperature until activated carbon is produced. The outside of the activated carbon is porous and binds impurities from water as it passes through the Fil₂R pod. You can shop our reusable water filters here!
