Granular Activated Carbon
Granular activated carbon (GAC) filters are becoming more popular for water treatment since they remove pollutants and toxins. GAC filters are unique, and this blog will explain why.
A GAC filter uses activated carbon particles to filter water. Carbon particles capture and absorb chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), insecticides, and other organic pollutants due to their porousness and vast surface area.
GAC filters are utilized in drinking water, shower, and whole-house water filtration systems.
GAC filters remove chlorine, VOCs, pesticides, and other organic pollutants from water. The enormous surface area of carbon particles traps and absorbs pollutants, while their porous shape allows water to pass through the bed quickly, providing efficient filtration.
GAC filters remove impurities from water without chemicals, unlike RO and distillation systems. They require no chemicals, energy-intensive processes, or expensive upkeep, making them more ecologically friendly and cost-effective.
GAC filters are cheaper than RO and distillation systems. They're cheaper for homeowners and companies who want to improve their water quality.
GAC filters are low-maintenance. The system only needs periodic carbon bed replacement.
Even non-plumbers can install GAC filters. Several models come with complete installation instructions and hardware.
