Granular Activated Carbon (GAC)

Water is an excellent solvent and can dissolve almost anything. Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) has been used for water purification since the start of 20th century. GAC is made from coconut shell, coal, wood and some other products. Thermal activation of carbon (charcoal) from these products improves its pore volume, surface area, and structure making it ideal for water treatment. Because of the high percentage of unique micro pores, Coconut Shell carbons make a good choice among these. The Adsorption Concept GAC works through adsorption mechanism. Carbon surface has a strong attraction for organic and some other contaminants. It can reduce undesirable...

Install and save from RO System!

Do you know what your bottled drinking water contains? Look closely at the label of these bottles for description. You will be surprised to know that bottled drinking water is your regular tap/well water filtered by Reverse Osmosis (RO)[1] to which minerals are added later to improve taste. Click on the image to enlarge You'll say - okay, so, what's the problem. Problem is cost of these bottles. If you are one of those people who drink bottled water on a daily basis, you pay approximately $0.75 per gallon* for water as compared to $0.048 per gallon** from RO filters and also create 1320 plastic bottle pollution a...

What and Why of KDF 55 Filter Media?

What is KDF 55 Filter Media? KDF stands for Kinetic Degradation Fluxion. KDF® filter medium is a high-purity formulation of copper-zinc alloy that reduces contaminants such as chlorine, bacteria and heavy metals using a chemical process called redox, or oxidation-reduction.  The unique combination of copper and zinc creates an electro-chemical reaction. And during this redox reaction, free electrons are transferred between molecules and new elements are created, changing harmful contaminants into harmless components. Chlorine, for instance, a previously harmful substance is changed into harmless, water-soluble chloride, which is then carried through water. Similarly, some heavy metals such as copper, lead, mercury and others,...

Decoding Alkaline Ionized Water

What is alkaline water?‘Alkaline’ refers to pH level, a number that ranges from 0 to 14. Something with a pH less than 7 is acidic and that with greater than 7 is alkaline. The pH of regular drinking water is around 7. Chemicals and gases can mix and react with water to change its ph level to make it acidic or alkaline. Because of higher pH level of Alkaline water, it can neutralize acids in the body. However, pH alone doesn’t give the water all the alkaline properties. Alkaline water must also contain negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP). What Is the ORP Level of...
