Bodyguard Plus Chemical Filtration System
The Bodyguard Plus Chemical Filtration System incorporates the professional-grade Interceptor Filter as an optional disinfection upgrade. This system utilizes our proprietary smart valve technology with backwashing and is designed with a downflow configuration. The Bodyguard plus contains 35% more media than the original Bodyguard.
- Great-Tasting Water - Removes the chemicals while leaving the minerals. You drink more water when it tastes great
- Healthier Skin And Hair- Harsh chemicals like chlorine and chloramine are irritating to the skin on both a physical and chemical basis.
- Better Indoor Air Quality - With the chemical contaminants removed, there will no vaporization or atomization of chemicals into the air from the water supply.
- Minimal Wasted Water - The greenest technology is also the technology that protects you and your family from the most chemicals and pathogens that can be in your water supply
- Made In The USA
No Filter – Of course, you can order the Bodyguard with no filter, but we do not recommend that. Since the Bodyguard does not backwash or wastewater, it is vitally important that no sand, silt, or solids enter the system where it can interfere with the carbon filtration process.
Magna Filter - We recommend a Magna 5-Micro Pre-filter for every Matrixx Water Softener. This is the only filter on that market that uses patented Posi-Seal technology to ensure 100% filtration with zero bypass. Prefilters are the best insurance for prolonging the life of both your water softener and household appliances. Best of all, it's 100% Made in the USA!
Stage 2 Inside is another layer of pleated material manufactured with a Zeta potential of 51 millivolts. Contaminants, like Chromium 6, lead, bacteria, virus, cysts, and heavy metals are actually "magnetically" removed from the water supply and "secured" in the Charged Sub-Micron Filter. It has passed testing for NSF/ANSI Standard 42 and 61 for potable water and USP Class VI testing and endotoxin testing. Next, the water enters the Bodyguard tank which also has two types of filtration:
Prolonged Contact Coconut Shell Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) removes or reduces chemical contaminants like Chlorine, Pesticides, THM, TCE, PCB, pharmaceuticals, herbicides, VOCs, industrial solvents, and hundreds of other contaminants.
Prolonged Contact Coconut Shell CATALYTIC Granular Activated Carbon (CGAC) also removes the above contaminants, as well as chloramine which cannot be removed with GAC carbon alone. Many cities are using chloramine and if your city doesn't, it likely will because it is cheaper.
Interceptor Filter – The Interceptor uses the same Double O-Ring Technology to assure 100% filtration with no “by-pass”. It has a 5-micron outer wrap, but inside the filter is another layer of pleated material manufactured of Nano Fibers that have a Zeta potential of 51 millivolts. Many contaminants are actually "magnetically" removed from the water supply and "secured" in the Charged Filter. This is a sub-micron filter that has the ability to remove the following:
- Chromium 6
… and many other contaminants
How Long Do The Filters Last?
The Interceptor Filter is engineered to be changed once a year. In extreme cases, it may last less than that depending upon your contaminant level. The carbon in the BodyGuard Filter can last several hundred thousand gallons to several million gallons. It all depends upon the level of contaminants. Some companies say theirs will last 12 years or millions of gallons. We recommend changing it every 5 years.
