Designed to reduce or remove chlorine, chemicals, tastes, odors and dissolved organic matter from municipal and industrial water supplies with prolonged contact coconut shell granular activated carbon filtration.
Granular activated carbon or GAC, is extremely effective at removing, chlorine, chemicals, pesticides, tastes and odors from the water supply. Additionally, granular catalytic activated carbon or CGAC is adept at removing all the same contaminants as well as chloramines. Chloramine is becoming more and more popular with municipal water treatment plants due to its lower cost. Chloramines are disinfectants used to treat drinking water and are most commonly formed when ammonia is added to chlorine to treat drinking water. Chloramines have many detrimental effects on health, and cannot be removed by boiling. In addition it will give a medicinal taste to many beverages, including beer. For more information on chloramines, visit the US EPA’s website on chloramines.
