Whole House Carbon Filtration Benefits
Remove Unwanted Tastes and Odors
If you are on city or well water, there may be some tastes and odors to your water. These can be created from chemicals and organics that get into the water. Carbon Filtration will remove these.
Removes Chlorine and Chloramines
When your water is treated at the treatment facility they will add chlorine and chloramines to kill off bacteria and viruses. Even though these are low amounts, it is not good for your body to consume these chemicals.
Remove Pesticides and Herbicides
These types of poisons can seep into pipes and water tables. Over time exposure to these can cause lasting damages to your body and pets. Carbon filtration will remove these from your water.
Protect Your Appliances and Softener
Chlorine will damage your appliances and water softener. It is a corrosive chemical that will damage your fittings, spacers, plastic parts and more. Placing carbon filtration before your softener will increase the lifespan by 3-4 years.

How Does Carbon Filtration Work
Carbon filtering works by adsorption, in which pollutants in the fluid to be treated are trapped inside the pore structure of a carbon substrate. The substrate is made of many carbon granules, each of which is itself highly porous. As a result, the substrate has a large surface area within which contaminants can be trapped. Activated carbon is typically used in filters, as it has been treated to have a much higher surface area than non treated carbon. One gram of activated carbon has a surface area in excess of 3,000 m2 (32,000 sq ft).
