Carbon Filtration Water Treatment in Los Angeles

Los Angeles County Soft Water Systems

Like other water filter systems, carbon filtration is used to remove contaminants, bacteria, and other impurities from drinking water and plumbing systems. It does this through a process of chemical absorption using activated carbon.

The process is known as adsorption—pollutants are trapped inside the structure of the carbon. In water purification systems, carbon filtration is especially useful for removing chlorine, sediments, odors, and tastes from water.

About Activated Carbon Filtration

There are two general types of carbon filters for water purification: granular activated carbon (GAC) and powdered block. GAC filters are some of the most popular, and are versatile enough to work in all kinds of residential settings. For your home, a GAC or other carbon filter may be the answer to your water system needs.

There are two common types of GAC filters:

Point of Entry Carbon Filter
Also known as a whole-house carbon filter, POE filters are installed at the basin of a location’s water supply, allowing the carbon filter to treat all water that travels in the home: faucets, tubs, showers, and other fixtures.

Point of Use Carbon Filter
POU filters are installed at faucets and other water fixtures, where the water exits the plumbing system. For example, a POU carbon filter for the kitchen sink is often located beneath the sink, filtering the water just before it leaves the faucet.

Powdered block and other carbon block filters are suited for removing larger quantities of contaminants and pollutants in larger bodies of water. For your home in the Los Angeles area, let Puronics handle your water filtration needs.
