Water filtration systems using Iron filters are the most popular filters used in residential homes using municipal or well water. The Iron filter effectively removes iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide. It is highly recommended for removing toxins that might find their way into your household’s water system as it travels from the water plant. Iron Filters are especially vital for homes using well water systems.
Activated carbon filters are positively charged therefore attracting negative ions in the water. Carbon filters effectively remove thousands of chemicals that are found in water. The higher concentration of carbon and the lower the water pressure the more effective the filtration of nasty chemicals that could be present in your household water. The more carbon the stronger the attraction and the larger surface area. The lower the water pressure means water runs more slowly, thus the chemicals spend a longer time coming in contact with the filter and attracting more toxins.
Aeration is a unit process in which air and water are brought into intimate contact. These water filtration systems are often used for carbon dioxide, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide reduction, oxidation of iron and are also an effective method of bacteria control.
