Point-of-Use Filters

Minimize the Risk of Legionella and Other Waterborne Pathogens with SAFETGARD® Point-of-Use Water Filters.

Why are Point-of-Use Filters Necessary?

There is no one single process that can ensure 100% removal of potential risk through secondary disinfection, so a multi-barrier approach is required to ensure water security all the way to the point of use. Even with filtration at the point-of-entry and secondary purification installed within the water distribution system, substantial risk still remains at the point-of-use. Point-of-use filtration is a final barrier to prevent harmful pathogens from coming in contact with users, and is particularly important for protecting those who are immunocompromised or immunosuppressed.

Why is Point-of-Entry Filtration Important?

Waterborne bacteria such as Legionella and Pseudomonas present a significant source of disease impacting millions of people per year. Point-of-use ice machine filters are able to effectively remove bacteria from drinking water to ensure safe ice and drinking water. LiquiTech’s SAFETGARD® ice machine filters provide simple and reliable protection immediately before water consumption or use, and can serve as a fail-safe final barrier of protection.

Point-of-use filters provide easy and reliable protection at the last possible moment before water use. LiquiTech offers SafeTGard point-of-use filters for shower heads, sinks, faucets, and ice machines. In emergency situations following an outbreak of infection, easy-to-install, easy-to-use SafeTGard filters offer instant protection and relief. SafeTGard uses proven membrane technology to solve the challenge of water disinfection.

Microfiber technology sets SAFETGARD apart from the traditional paper technology used in most filters.

Fail-safe.
Our filters are not susceptible to breaching when the cartridge becomes plugged with bacteria-laden sediment – all of the bacteria will stay contained in the filter, preventing contamination

Independent, third-party validation.
Our filters have been extensively evaluated in accordance with relevant microbiological test protocols in independent laboratories. The filters have passed all rigorous third-party tests, assuring facility and clinical staff that the cartridges retain large numbers of organisms, including Legionella, Psuedomonas, Klebsiella, Aspergillus fumigatus, and Fusarium solani.

Bacteria reduction.
7 log bacteria 99.99999% and 4 log 99.99% of cyst and fungi reduction.

Designed for ease of use.
The shower filter looks and feels like an ordinary handheld shower unit, and the balance and grip of the product make it easy to use. The low profile tap filter mounts to the existing water faucet and is positioned to the side rather than directly underneath the faucet, which provides more room for handwashing.

Safety.
SAFETGARD filters have a duckbill check valve that prevents cartridges from coming into contact with unsafe water or pathogen exposure. The insulated design of the shower filter prevents the handle from heating up during use, providing protection from scalding.
