Aquaspace® Chemical Reduction
The patented Aquaspace® Compound consists of a blend of various carbonaceous materials, which have a highly porous structure. These materials may be thermally or chemically activated to produce a surface area of over 2,000 square meters per gram. This incredibly large surface area allows for the water to flow through and the chemicals in your water to adsorb onto the treatment compound. Put simply, the Aquaspace Compound acts as a supercharged molecular magnet that attracts a wide range of contaminants.
The Aquaspace Compound filters out unwanted organic and inorganic chemicals and doesn’t lower the pH value of the water. It has been rigorously tested and certified by the National Testing Laboratories according to ANSI/NSF Standards for the reduction of:
- Taste & Odor
- Organic & Inorganic Compounds
- 99% of Lead
- 99% of Chlorine
- 99% of gases including:
- 99% of Trihalomethanes
- 99% of Organic Halides
- Numerous Industrial Solvents that can be found in:
- Industrial cleansers
- Gasoline and other fuels
- Chemical manufacturing by-products
- Various manufacturing processes
- Chlorination of water
- Wood preservatives
- Weed control
- Herbicides & Pesticides
- Trace Pharmaceuticals and Hormones that have been disposed of improperly into our water systems
- 55 of the most common VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) such as Chloroform & Benzene.

The Aquaspace Compound, which is in all our filtration products, is based on technology provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. As well, the Aquaspace Compound will leave in any beneficial minerals that are essential for good health.
The Aquaspace Compound is highly uniform in quality. It is back washable which gives it extended life. Its high resistance to abrasion results in minimum losses during back washing and mechanical handling. The wide variety of pore sizes with especially numerous pores means that the AQUASPACE Water Treatment Compound can adsorb both high and low molecular weight materials.
