Quality Water Filters 4 You Posting Page
Wednesday, February 5, 2014
A small or crowded kitchen counter can make the use of a countertop water filter difficult, but the MultiPure MP750SB solves that problem by being mounted under the sink. A chrome bracket allows you to attach the filter securely to the cabinet wall. The included faucet can be emplaced either in the sink itself (where the spray attachment would otherwise be) or on the counter. The filter housing is stainless steel, and made to last for decades.
The Power of Activated Charcoal
Activated charcoal is the carbonized form of peat moss, coconut shells, wood, or even coal. The reason why the carbonized form of these substances is so valuable for filtration purposes is because it has been treated with oxygen or steam at a very high temperature. This has the effect of producing hundreds of thousands of tiny pores in the charcoal which increase the surface area hugely. This greater surface area allows more opportunity for harmful substances to ‘be caught’ by the charcoal before they can reach your drinking water.
Among the harmful substances captured by activated charcoal in the MultiPure MP750SB are VOCs, or volatile organic compounds. These include such chemicals as benzene, alachlor, chloroform (released from chlorinated water), endrin, and tolulene. Some of these are pesticides and herbicides that enter groundwater from agricultural runoff, some are disinfecting agents, and others are byproducts of industrial processes. However, they cause a range of chronic and acute
health problems in those who consume them:
These are all serious and frightening medical conditions, but fortunately, they are largely avoidable with the installation of the MultiPure Filter. You will be able to enjoy a much greater peace of mind knowing that your drinking and cooking water is safe.
A Complete Filter
While the MultiPure MP750SB Aquaserva Water Filter shines at reducing dangerous VOCs, it is also great at reducing other harmful elements such as heavy metals, cysts, and silt, so your water will both taste and look clean and fresh.
