Environment Guide

Home Water Filtration Systems
Water quality is an issue that’s raised more than a few concerns over the past few decades. Despite the continuing efforts of the EPA and state and local water agencies, chances are very good that the water you use every day is far from ‘pure’. Water in wells could be affected by contaminants in the ground water. Even if your water is supplied through a municipal water treatment facility, there are many contaminants that may slip through. Article describes how to approach home water filtration.

Home Water Filter Types
Article describes various types of home water filter types. Point of use water filters are installed where the water is to be used and only filter the water at that one point. Point of use water filters include: faucet filters, countertop water filters, inline/undersink filters and shower filters. Some contaminants are easier to remove with a Whole House System.

Water Purification Technologies
There are many methods used to remove impurities and contaminants from water. Each of the water purification technologies is best at removing one type of contaminant from water, and may not be effective at all for others. Water purification technologies are: Micro or Particulate Filtration, Carbon Filtration (Adsorption), Distillation, Ion Exchange (Absorption), Ultrafiltration, Reverse Osmosis...

Shower Filters, Filtered Shower Heads
There’s nothing like a nice, steamy shower to get you clean and help you relax – unless you’re one of the millions of people who are stuck with hard or highly chlorinated water. In that case, a shower can leave you with itchy, dry skin, burning eyes and a general feeling that you’re just not clean.

Quite simply put, reverse osmosis is the most efficient way to remove the largest number of contaminants commonly found in water, but it is also not trivial to do it right.

Ultrafiltration (UF) is an important water purification technology used for production of high-purity water. UF is effective in the removal of colloids, proteins, bacteria, pyrogens (e.g. gram-negative bacterial endotoxins), and other organic molecules larger than 0.1 - 0.2 Micron size..
