What is Chitosan?

Chitosan is a substance derived from the shells of crab, and other crustaceans. Given it’s low potential for toxicity and Chitosan’s abundance in nature being 100% biodegradable it does not harm people, pets, wildlife or the environment.

Chitosan is a perfect solution for use in causing fine sediment particles to bind together trapping heavy metals and oils as well. It is an integral part of engineering our on-site water filtration process.

This safe material is even famously used in the brewing of beer, creation of cheese and clarification of fine wine.
