There are very many contaminates that have-and still -entering our ground and lake water supplies These contaminates are often harmful and impart taste and odor problems in potable water supply Whole House Contaminates Filtration Systems available in 10″ and 20′ models, offer a quick and effective solution to remove these contaminants from our water supply. These work by incorporating two stages into its filtration process. The first stage involves a sediment pre-filter which removes sediment particles including dirt, rust, silt, and scale; improving the physical appearance of water The second stage uses an activated carbon filter Mich adsorbs up to 95% or greater EDB, atrazine, TCE, PCE, and THMs. It also effectively reduces chlorine and other foul tastes and odors.
Activated Carbon is extremely porous with a very large surface area Its porosity makes it an excellent adsorbent, well suited for organic chemicals including volatile organic chemicals while having higher chlorine reduction capabilities. Coconut shell carbon is known to make good tasting “sweet’ water
The intermolecular attractions in the smallest pores result in increased surface area available for adsorption (ratio of 1 gram = 100 meter square of surface area) The molecules of the contaminants in the water are adsorbed onto the surface of the Activated carbon by either physical or chemical attraction.
