This filtration system operates in three steps. The first step involves the external shell of the system which obstructs biological organisms from entering. The second step involves the use of an anti-bacterial formula within the ceramic material which stops microbial growth. The final step involves activated carbon which decreases the levels of chlorine and organic compounds.
