Carbon Filters remove several different contaminants, here is a list of the most common ones:
-many volatile organic chemicals (VOC)
-many pesticides and herbicides
-trihalomethane (THM) compounds
-hundreds of other man-made chemicals found in tap water
All of our Whole House Carbon Filters contain NSF certified carbon. We offer two primary types of carbon based on the chemicals used to treat the municipal water in specific areas. Both carbons are highly effective for reduction or removal of impurities including disinfectants, organics, herbicides, pesticides and industrial solvents.
