Reverse Osmosis and Carbon Filtration
Water filtration systems are designed to have varying capabilities of filtering, in order to serve a variety of filtration needs. For example, if the only contaminant in your water is the chemical chlorine added at the water treatment facility, a basic carbon filter will provide your home with clean, chlorine free water.
However, if your home’s water contains a heavy contamination of chemicals and pesticides, you may require a more advanced carbon filter. When heavy metals and bacteria are included in the contaminants identified in the water quality report, you would need a reverse osmosis system to provide safe, clean water for your home.
A number of reverse osmosis water filtration systems also utilize carbon filtration providing an extremely effective system. However, neither system is capable of removing the dissolved mineral solids in hard water. Only a water softener can remove the dissolved minerals contained in hard water.
It should be noted, a reverse osmosis system requires a carbon prefilter when used for filtering water containing chlorine, or chloramine for treatment. Without the prefilter, the RO membrane will receive damage. However, a large number of today’s RO systems already utilize carbon filtration for pretreatment and as a quality filtration system by combining the technologies.
There are a numerous types of water filtration products available. The most common types are whole house, and point of use filtration systems.
Whole house water filtration systems, also known as point-of-entry (POE) systems, treat all of the water entering a residence. They install in the water supply line.
