Platinum Series: For Taste & Odor
THE PROBLEM: Your municipality does their best with the resources they have to deliver you clean, healthy water. That’s why some municipalities have difficulty in meeting EPA water standards. Activated carbon is the most effective product for removing organic chemicals that make your water smell and taste poor. Many local water districts use chloramine treatment – a mixture of chlorine and ammonia – to extend the disinfecting power of chlorine in your water. However, chloramines have been known to cause pinhole leaks in copper pipes. While your water is safer to drink, the potential water damage of your pipes is greatly increased due to the water chemistry.
THE SOLUTION: Carbon filtering uses a bed of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities by a process called adsorption whereby pollutant molecules are attracted to and held (adsorbed) onto the surface of the carbon particles. Carbon filtration also removes the chemicals that make your water smell & taste bad while extending the life of your plumbing system.
FACT: Carbon filtration removes chemicals that make your water smell & taste bad and helps your plumbing system last longer by eliminating the corrosion caused by chlorine and chloramine.
