Here we show you what filter to use for removal of different contaminants from drinking water, plus below the table is an explanation of each filter.
Carbon block filters (CBC). Carbon block filters contain a solid carbon block designed to remove contaminants, bad taste and odours; in particular: chlorine, sediment, lead, rust, cysts, asbestos and other water impurities.
Granular activated carbon filters (GAC). These carbon filters are able to cleanse and purify the water for great taste, odour and clarity, plus reduced chlorine.
Sediment block filters. These filters remove large contaminants that are visible to the eye such as: debris, sand, hair and other particles that can restrict the flow of water.
Filters with added polyphosphate. Polyphosphate filters represent a highly effective way of reducing scale deposits. They contain slow soluble polyphosphate beads with the ability to diminish the scale build-up in hot tanks. Depending on the micron size, the polyphosphate filters offer also standard filtration, freeing the water from sand, human hair and pollen, and lead and cyst reduction.
Reverse osmosis. Reverse osmosis is the ideal filtration to use when the water quality is unknown or is known to carry contaminants in the water. Providing an even higher level of filtration over carbon, RO effectively removes dissolved particles like acid, salts, nitrates, pesticides, arsenic).
