Removing Chlorine from Water – Chlorine Water Filters

Chlorine water filters

Chlorine water filters are specifically manufactured to remove chlorine, which is a very toxic substance found in treated water. Although chlorine is used for the initial cleaning of water, it is not removed afterwards and it is found in tap water everywhere and poisons us in small doses.  A wise solution would be to use chlorine water filters to get rid of this nasty toxin from water. While some filters as the carbon block filter type talk about removing chlorine, its byproducts may still exist in the water. Chlorine fights bacteria but other harmful contaminants are produced. These can be removed by other filtration devices that can be combined with a chlorine filter for best results.

Ceramic Water Filters

Ceramic water filters are eco-friendly and a great choice in producing healthy and safe drinking water. They can be used for many types ao water purification systems such as counter top filters, under the sink or even portable water filters. Their efficiency lies in the really small pore sizes of the ceramic material. For best performance, they are most frequently combined with carbon activated filters to maximize water quality. They can also be used with silver to eradicate bacteria and microorganisms or with charcoal to extinguish chemicals and bad taste.
