As water from the treatment plant flows through the infrastructure of pipes and valves in the municipal water system, it can pick up almost anything. The water may contain chemicals, pathogens, farm waste, and sewage.
A carbon filter effectively removes the vast majority of harmful chemicals and additives in the water supply, including chlorine. Chlorine when injected can lead to health issues. Additionally, when bathing, it can be absorbed into the skin and inhaled into the lungs when vaporized in the air. This may be even more harmful than drinking it, so treating your water for chlorine is essential to your family’s health.
A carbon filter removes more than 100 harmful agents as identified by the EPA. The result is cleaner, odor-free water that you can drink, cook with, bathe in, and wash clothes in with confidence.
