Common examples of VOCs include:

  1. Formaldehyde: Found in building materials, pressed wood products, and certain fabrics.
  2. Benzene: Present in tobacco smoke, stored fuels, and some industrial emissions.
  3. Toluene: Used in paint thinners, adhesives, and nail polish.
  4. Ethylene glycol: Found in antifreeze and certain paints.
  5. Xylene: Used in the printing, rubber, and leather industries.

Common Types of Cysts in Water:

  1. Giardia: Caused by the protozoan Giardia lamblia, giardiasis is an intestinal infection that can result in diarrhea, cramps, and nausea. Giardia cysts are common in untreated water sources such as lakes, rivers, and streams.

  2. Cryptosporidium: This protozoan parasite causes cryptosporidiosis, which leads to severe diarrhea and stomach cramps. Cryptosporidium cysts are highly resistant to chlorine disinfection and are often found in contaminated drinking water and recreational water sources.


The cap and body are spin welded together producing a smooth, consistent seal without the use of glues or binders that can cause contamination. The result of these design and production techniques is a reliable filter that is fast and easy to install.
