The problem with your water

Why carbon?

The primary functions of activated carbon are the removal of chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), chlorinated hydrocarbons and organic impurities whilst acting as a mechanical filter for particulate reduction to the cartridge construction. Standard applications, although carbon is used for many bespoke purposes, are numerous and as the absorption capabilities and capacities are explored further, the employment of activated carbon is increased. See below for the carbon removal capabilities. If you live in a HARD WATER area please see our hardness reduction kit on the filter kit page.
