Clean water in your home or business is a necessity, and there are thousands of contaminants that can destroy the quality of your water. While some contaminants are harmless and cause only cosmetic changes that make your water cloudy or discolored or give it a foul smell, others can be seriously harmful to your health.

Many contaminants in water are indicators that harmful chemicals or bacteria are seeping into your groundwater or that your pipes have been compromised. Ozone Pure Water Inc. supplies granular activated carbon water treatment systems (also known as GAC filters) that use granular media to filter out and eliminate particles and chemicals in the water that are causing issues at your home or business.

Granular activated carbon water treatment is among the most popular and widely used filtration forms. The granular media filtration system uses carbon to pull in contaminants and hold them to the surface of the filter, preventing them from then entering the water that you and your family drink. There are different types of granular activated carbon water treatment systems, including whole-house filters – also called point-of-entry filters – which put water through granular media filtration before it goes through the house. This filters the water supply before it enters kitchen faucets, showers, washing machines, dishwashers and other points. This not only prevents occupants from drinking the contaminated water, but also prevents the chemicals from being absorbed through the skin or breathed in, as well as prevents contamination from entering the plumbing inside your home or business.

Another type of granular activated carbon water treatment system is a unit that fits under your sink. Also called a point-of-use filter, these filters take contaminants out of the water using the same granular media filtration, but these are placed directly at the faucet. These are commonly seen at kitchen faucets as a way to provide clean, drinkable tap water, but can be added to showers, bathroom sinks and other fixtures throughout a building.
