In fact, there are more than 2,100 known contaminants in drinking water. You will not, of course, find anywhere near that number in a single source of drinking water in the United States, but there are more contaminants than most people care to ingest.

The Benefits of Carbon Filters
Carbon is a highly absorbent substance, and is extremely effective in trapping impurities. Carbon with an added electro-positive charge, otherwise known as activated carbon or charcoal, adsorbs (as opposed to absorb) chemicals, organic compounds and other contaminants, reducing their number.
The two primary types of carbon filters are carbon block filters and granular activated carbon filters. These filters are effective in removing including chlorine, herbicides, pesticides, radon and VOCs. Both types of carbon filters have substantial filtering capacities; however, block filters are more effective. Both are exceedingly effective in providing clean, great tasting water that is odor free. However, carbon filters will not remove heavy metals or dissolved solids.
The Benefits of Reverse Osmosis Filters
Reverse Osmosis was originally developed to extract salt from seawater. Reverse Osmosis utilizes pressure to extract water through a semi-permeable membrane and filters the impurities from it as it flows through the membrane.
These filters are extremely effective for extracting contaminants from the water supply. They draw out more pollutants and chemicals than any other water filtration system in Fort Worth. The membranes used in reverse osmosis will leave water 99% free of impurities. Contact a Benjamin Franklin plumber in Fort Worth today for a professional installation.
