People are increasingly concerned about environmental matters and that extends to the use of water filtration systems in Washington County. More and more, that means using natural materials to filter water and making the whole process more sustainable.
That doesn’t mean that the process is any less effective because the main aim is to produce water that is free of contaminants, is good for your health and tastes great.
Greater Efficiency from Water Filters in Washington County
Some water filters have previously used salt or various chemicals that had to be added frequently to make the process work. In contrast, many of our filters now use coconut-based activated carbon, a natural product obtained from managed and sustainable plantations.
The carbon from carefully selected coconut shells is washed in acid to achieve purity and is steam activated. The pores in the active carbon particles are then able to absorb impurities in a completely natural and organic manner.
Some filters use coal-based carbon which is cheaper but doesn’t work as well. We use coconut-based carbon that is free of dust and so doesn’t cause cloudy water when first used. Additionally, all our carbon is certified by NSF, an independent organization that produces public health standards, as being safe to use.
