FAQs

Water filters are designed to reduce chemicals, biological contaminants, heavy metals, and other impurities found in drinking water. Different filters are used to treat water for different impurities.  Filters can chemically attract pollutants to the filter media, physically block contaminants from entering drinking water, or both.

Reverse osmosis is a water treatment process that removes contaminants from water by using pressure to force water molecules through a semipermeable membrane. During this process, the contaminants are filtered out and flushed away, leaving clean drinking water.

Reverse osmosis typically employs two carbon filters, which together effectively remove organic contaminants, including chlorine and its byproducts, lead, mercury, and arsenic. 

Although water softeners and water filters are included under the general term “water treatment,” they serve very different functions. Water softeners are designed to remove “hardening” minerals, including calcium and magnesium, from water that can damage pipes and appliances. Water softeners are not designed to remove dangerous contaminants from drinking water. Water filters, on the other hand, are designed to reduce unsafe pollutants in drinking water.

Researchers report that bottled water is not any purer than tap water—it just costs more. In fact, the U.S. FDA claims that bottled water companies who promote their brands as being safer than tap water are “defrauding” the American public. There are no federal filtration or disinfection requirements for bottled water companies to adhere to. Furthermore, bottled water companies are not required to issue an annual Consumer Confidence Report that explains to consumers what is in bottled water. Additionally, over 50 billion plastic water bottles are used annually in the U.S.

On the other hand, most purification products provide superior water to both tap and bottled water, are environmentally safe, and cost a fraction of what bottled water costs over the lifetime of the purification equipment.


By itself, carbon is a highly absorbent material that can absorb thousands of different chemicals. Activated carbon is carbon with a slightly positive charge to it, which makes it even more absorbent to chemicals and contaminants. As your water passes over the charged carbon surface, the negative ions of the contaminants are attracted to the surface of the carbon granules.

Activated carbon effectively removes volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pesticides, herbicides, chlorine, benzene, radon, cancer-causing chlorine byproducts such as THMs, and hundreds of other chemicals in tap water. Carbon filters are not particularly effective at removing dissolved inorganic chemicals, minerals/salts, arsenic, and barium. Most home water purification systems include an activated carbon filter, either as a primary filter or as a pre-filter.


The particles in your filtered water are most likely calcium or other mineral deposits and are completely harmless. Since carbon filters do not remove dissolved minerals from water, these particles can appear in your water as a result of build-up in the water lines leading to your refrigerator. If you are using ice cubes with your filtered water, the particles may be even more evident, as the dissolved minerals tend to become "suspended" from the water when frozen. If the mineral deposits become bothersome, you may wish to clean the plumbing leading to your filter with a cleaning solution designed to remove calcium, lime, and rust.

“Just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the service I received.  Your technician, Chris,  was very courteous, and had a systematic way about him while doing the job.  He answered all of my questions and before he left he gave a second check to see that all was in order.”
