Is my drinking water safe?
What can I do about making my drinking water safe?

There are so many different types of water contaminants that it is impossible to be completely sure on all possibilities of safe drinking water. You can, however, have your water tested for bacteriological safety and for specific water contaminants. The NORS (National Organics Reconnaissance Survey) showed that essentially all treated water supplies have at least trace amounts of unsafe chemical water contaminants, such as THM's present. More importantly, unsafe organic water contaminants like Giardia and Cryptosporidia pose very serious health threats with more cases of illness occurring from unsafe city water than from unsafe water in rural areas. There is no known treatment except prevention for many of these drinking water safety problems.

You can purify your own drinking water at the point and time of use with the Seagull IV water purifiers for about 10 cents a gallon, or you can purchase non government regulated bottled water and pay 4 to 40 times that cost. General Ecology® Seagull IV water purifiers are economical to purchase and operate, simple to install and convenient to use. Add pure water convenience and peace of mind to your life. Choose one of our home water purifiers for safe drinking water right at your sink or one of our portable water purifiers, for safe drinking water on the go.


What makes General Ecology's
Seagull IV Water Purifiers "different"?

We're often asked what makes our Seagull IV drinking water purifiers different. While there are many reasons, probably the two most compelling are

(1) General Ecology's Seagull IV water purifier technology was specifically designed by multi-disciplined-scientists and engineers, from a comprehensive overview analysis, to protect against modern societies' inorganic water contaminants (environmental water contaminants) and organic water contaminants (ecological water contaminants). Most other products have evolved from older water softening or charcoal water filtering products. Seagull means safe drinking water.

(2) This next generation Seagull IV water purifier technology , now referred to as " Structured Matrix" includes a combination of truly advanced water purification concepts and water purification techniques not available from any other water filter product. It is truly a water purification process - instantly and effectively removing from water: disease bacteria, cysts and viruses, as well as chemical and aesthetic water contaminants WITHOUT chemical additives, electricity, holding time or double processing. This process assures the safety of your drinking water.

There is no other water purification product like the Seagull IV water purifier on the market - our water purification technology is a trade secret, unique and proprietary to General Ecology Inc. "Structured Matrix" remains the only water purification technology certified to meet USEPA microbiological water purification standards against all three classes of water-borne disease microorganisms without the use of chemicals, hold times, electricity and wastewater. Why settle for a mere water filter when you can have the best in water purification? With the seagull IV water purifier you will never again have to ask the question. Is my water safe?

We pride ourselves on the years of research and development that resulted in the amazing capabilities of our Seagull IV water purifiers. The testimony to our outstanding success is continually evidenced not only by unexcelled safe water purification test results but also by over 35 years of satisfied users in a wide range of activities worldwide.
Seagull IV the best in safe drinking water technology.

Why Seagull IV water purifiers are
far better than mere water filters.

General Ecology, Inc.'s Seagull IV water purifiers are the only water purifiers that utilize Structured MatrixTM technology to offer the highest level of drinking water purification instantly without chemicals, pre-treatment, double processing or hold time. General Ecology's Seagull IV water purifiers remove viruses, bacteria, and protozoa, plus many organic and inorganic chemical and aesthetic water contaminants at the highest "purification" micron level (0.1 microns / 0.4 microns absolute) to provide great tasting drinking water while protecting against water related disease. By comparison, even the very best water filters only remove certain protozoa, and perhaps bacteria and possibly certain aesthetic contaminants, providing a lessor standard of protection than that of General Ecology's Seagull IV water purifiers. With Seagull IV safe drinking water is only as far away as your kitchen.

Our water purification technology is certified to USEPA. Guide Standard for Microbiological Water Purification against disease bacteria, cysts and viruses! Without Chemicals!

The Seagull IV water purification system cost may be higher than a water filter but its level of effectiveness meets or exceeds complex powered units costing three to four times as much.
