Below are your top three water filtration options:
Many homeowners choose carbon filtration, as it is a cost-effective way to improve your water quality. Going into more detail, this type of filtration system works as carbon attaches to certain chemicals. When water containing these chemicals passes through the carbon filter, the chemicals attach to the carbon. When the water has passed through the filter, it is then clear of these chemicals. One of the chemicals removed by carbon filters includes hydrogen sulfide, which is what gives water that horrible rotten egg smell.
Carbon filters use granular activated carbon (GAC), which is made from organic materials that are high in carbon (such as coconut shells and coal). Heat is used to activate the carbon. The GAC then absorbs whatever chemicals attach to the carbon as the water passes through.
In order for a carbon filter to be effective, it is critical to know what chemicals and contaminants are in the water. Minerals such as iron, which does not attach to carbon, will not be removed by the filter. However, if your aim is to remove hydrogen sulfide so your water does not smell like rotten eggs, then this is the right system for you. It is also critical to know the volume of water that will pass through the system. This determines the correct size and components of the filtration system.
The type of filter you choose for your home will depend on the type of contaminants you intend to remove. If you do not have a water filtration system, or your water is tasting funny or seems clouded, contact us for advice on the best solution.
