Microplastics are microscopic plastic particles that can be found in our water sources. These plastics are problematic as they break down quickly and contaminate our drinking water.
Particles can come from many sources, such as plastic bottles and personal care items. They could also be accidentally dumped into oceans or lakes by mistake.
Ceramic water filters remove contaminants using porous material. Ceramic filters remove bacteria, particulate matter, and sediment from water with millions of half-micron pores.
Ceramic filters are safer than plastic ones, which leach chemicals into drinking water. Their advanced filtration system removes VOCs and heavy metals with an impregnated ceramic with silver and an activated carbon core.
Turbidity-reducing filters remove brown and yellow water discolorations. This lets people drink more clean water and enjoy its crisp taste.
Cleaning cartridges are risky because they’re fragile. To remove sediments clogging the cartridge’s pores, brush it in a bowl or under running water.
Reverse osmosis filters tap water using a semi-permeable membrane. This membrane effectively blocks some molecules while letting others through.
Reverse osmosis requires high pressure to push contaminated water through the membrane and leave pure water behind. Osmosis occurs naturally.
Reverse osmosis purifies water cheaply and sustainably. Reverse osmosis removes chlorine, nitrates, pesticides, industrial chemicals, heavy metals, fluoride, and more from water.
Reverse osmosis systems prevent contaminated water from entering public sewers, reducing wastewater treatment. RO systems can be installed under kitchen sinks or as standalone units for residential and commercial use. They also remove paints, dyes, and industrial pollutants from water.
Distillation is one of the oldest water treatment methods. It kills bacteria, inorganic chemicals, and many organic compounds.
Distillation involves boiling contaminated water, vaporizing it, and cooling it. Heat kills waterborne bacteria, viruses, and protozoan cysts.
Distillation removes minerals and chemicals. Distillation cannot remove oils and petroleum products, which have a higher boiling point than water.
Distillation purifies water for industrial and medical use at a low cost.
NSF International-certified water filters reduce microplastics. This certification proves the product removes health-threatening pollutants.
Public health standards and product certification by NSF International (formerly the National Sanitation Foundation) protect consumers. Food safety and water filtration certification are their specialties.
If you want peace of mind, NSF-certified filters effectively remove contaminants. It’s also important to note the device’s claimed contaminants.
Carbon-based and RO/ion exchange filters are NSF-certified. Choosing one that meets your family’s needs is crucial since each is customized.
