Absorption water filters
Among the types of water filtration systems available, perhaps the most common is the absorption water filter, also known as a carbon absorption filter. These filters are often used to eliminate the frequent problem with chlorine in municipal water, which is a byproduct of the chemical treatment process. Absorption filters will also remove contaminants that create unpleasant tastes and smells in your water.
An absorption filter consists of carbon-based minerals in a matrix that contains many microscopic pores and pits. The raw material for this matrix comes from organic material that is high in carbons, such as coconut shells and coal. The various pores in the matrix trap unwanted particles in the water as it flows through it.
Eventually, an absorption filter must be replaced or it will become too clogged with the captured pollutants. If you have an absorption filtration system in your home, you may notice a drop in water flow or the return of contaminants into the water supply at some point. These are signs that you should replace the filter. If you are using an activated carbon filter, professionals can re-activate it when its performance lags.
Absorption filters will not affect a number of the contaminants that can get into your water, such as some heavy metals and chemicals. This is one of the reasons that you shouldn’t select and install a water treatment system on your own, but instead call on professionals to test your water first. They will know the right type of filter to use to see that you receive the purified water you want.
