WATER TREATMENT
CARBON FILTERS

Activated Carbon (AC) Filters - Activated carbon filtration is most effective in removing organic contaminants from water. Because organic chemicals are often responsible for taste, odour and colour problems, activated carbon filtration can generally be used to improve aesthetically objectionable water that is treated to attract certain contaminants. When water passes through this type of filter, the carbon particles attract and remove contaminants (including dissolved substances such as hydrogen sulphide, heavy metals such as lead, mercury and copper and chlorine).

There are two types of activated carbon filters - Granular and Solid Block:

  • Granular activated carbon (GAC) filters use a cartridge packed with granules of activated carbon. When water passes through the filter, the filter's numerous carbon granules trap particles and remove substances dissolved in the water (such as chlorine, heavy metals and harmful organic compounds).
  • Solid-Block Activated Carbon filters have activated carbon not in the form of small granules, but instead is composed of activated carbon particles that have been compressed into a dense material through which water travels. With very small pores and a larger surface area for the carbon to absorb particles, there is a better chance of trapping contaminants such as pesticides, chlorine, lead and asbestos than there is with other filters.
Whole house tank-type units containing granular activated carbon provide chlorine-free water at spigots. Single faucet devices, often installed under the sink at the kitchen tap, can provide chlorine-free water for drinking and cooking.
Ask one of our certified water treatment specialists about our many carbon filter choices and which one is right for you. See our great coupon offer below.

A frequently asked question is "How can I increase our water pressure?"

Pressure is commonly measured in PSI (Pounds per square inch) or KPa (Kilo Pascals) as noted on your pressure gauge on your water pressure tank. It's a relative term as people either think they have enough or too little for their daily activities. People rarely check the gauge on the tank. Most people complain because they have too little pressure. Its seems low when they run a tap or shower and its worse when they run two taps! Most water systems are set up to run at a range between 40-60 psi. That is, the pump starts at 40 psi and shuts off when it reaches 60 psi. A twenty pound spread is pretty standard. Having said all this, if Your pressure seems low it might be as simple as adjusting your pressure switch. This should be done by an experienced pump technician as it has there are exposed electrical components under the cover. If adjusting the switch does not help, the low pressure may be related to a plumbing issue. Small feed lines to the house and hot water tank can result in low pressure especially when more than one tap is used. Contact our service department to discuss or arrange an inspection of your water system if you have low water pressure.
Our popular 20 Point Inspection program, is a flat rate service that will identify this and any other issues with your water system.
