The water that comes out of our taps contains all manner of impurities which can cause bad odour and taste at best, or gastrointestinal diseases or even cancer at worst. As the water passes through the municipal supply and through kilometres of pipes it can be contaminated by pesticides, herbicides, chlorine, benzene, radon, and various bacteria among many others.
A carbon water filter works to remove these impurities as the water passes through the surface area of the filter. Carbon has a large surface area and attracts and retains these contaminants, so they don’t pass through into your glass.
Particles smaller than the carbon itself will still pass through. This means that your glass of water will still deliver essential minerals such as fluoride, magnesium, and potassium. Filtering tap water with a carbon filter means you’ll have great tasting, odourless, mineral-rich water, keeping you hydrated and healthy.
