HotColdFilterWhat is Water Filtration or Point of Use?

If you want to get technical about it… There are those who just want to turn on the faucet or spigot and have clean water come out. And then there are those “how things work” enthusiasts who want to dig a little deeper. This page is for you.

A water Filtration, or Point of Use, systems connects to your existing water supply to reduce potentially harmful impurities, total dissolved solids (TDS), lead and other chemicals in tap water. Because water is filtered before it’s dispensed from your tap, water cooler or coffee equipment, you get fresh, safe water for drinking, making coffee and tea.

The Ins and Outs of Water Filtration

Although we pride ourselves on our bottled water we do understand that circumstances may dictate alternative solutions to provide higher quality drinking water. Water filtration / Point of Use (POU) systems can improve the taste, purity and safety of water. Filtration units are available in convenient bottleless water dispensers. Municipal Water flows through multiple water treatment technologies through our filtration unit to provide your office with an unlimited supply of fresh, clean drinking water for one low monthly fee. A filtration system plumbed to a water cooler dispenses ice cold or piping hot water at the push of a button. Filtration ensures your water will be free of unpleasant odors, tastes, color and contaminants. Let us take worry out of it with our filtration systems and service that is second to none.

Activated Carbon Filtration Systems - How Activated Carbon Filters Work

Source water passes through a filtration mesh, which blocks large particulates. Next, smaller organic matter is removed. Finally, the waterCarbonPipe reaches a core of activated carbon that acts like an organic magnet and traps contaminants as the water passes through. This process is called “adsorption” (like a magnet) instead of “absorption” (like a sponge).

NSF International* certified, multi-technology carbon filtration is also effective in reducing cysts and lead, which may leach from the pipes that deliver tap water. Other benefits are:

  • NSF International* certifies the process for reducing particulates, unpleasant taste, odor, cysts, asbestos and lead.
  • Multi-technology cartridges are sealed to prevent exposure to airborne pollutants.
  • Systems do not require connection to a drain.

*NSF International, The Public Health and Safety Company™, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization, is the world leader in standards development. product certification, education and risk management for public health and safety.

FilterCutawayWhich technology is right for you?

Water’s water, right? Not exactly. In some parts of the country, the water is loaded with minerals, making it extra hard. In other places the problem might be chlorine. The point is, you need to know what’s in your water to decide how to take it out. Use the guidelines below to see if Activated Carbon Filtration is the system that’s right for you.

An activated carbon filtration system is a good choice for improving the taste of most tap water. It effectively reduces the chlorine taste and odors commonly associated with municipal water and also reduces bacterial cysts, lead, asbestos and other biological impurities.

We recommend an activated carbon filtration system when your tap water is:

• Dirty, rusty and full of sediment
• Contains chlorine
• Has off color, odors and/or unpleasant taste
• Has low mineral content
