Whole house filter

Did you know we absorb more chlorine through our skin and through inhalation during a 10 minute shower than we do drinking 8 glasses of water a day?

The Safe Drinking Water Act mandates the EPA to strictly regulate contaminants in community drinking water. In order to meet those standards, chemicals like chlorine are added to our water supply. Trihalomethanes (THM’s) are a byproduct of the chlorination process that most public drinking water systems use for disinfection. Chloroform is the primary THM of concern. The EPA does not allow public systems to have more than 100 parts per billion of THM’s in their treated water. Some municipal systems have had difficulty in meeting this standard.

Activated Carbon is the most effective way to filter municipal water. Activated Carbon is nature’s filtering system, and is most effective in removing organic chemicals and compounds from the water. The water that is being delivered to us by our cities may not be as safe as we would like. What may be harmful to our health are all of the chemicals used by municipal water facilities to treat the water to rid it of bacteria. The chemicals being used in our water cause corrosion in copper piping, so what is it doing to our bodies?
