Municipal Water is good for you... Right?
The two biggest concerns with city water are chlorine and calcium. They make the water very hard and taste terrible. The water arrives at your house disinfected with chlorine and monochloramines. It is up to the homeowner to remove disinfectants and hardness.
WATER SOFTENER. A water softener only deals with hardness. Through ion exchange, the resin inside the tank removes the calcium from the water. It then uses the salt water brine to clean itself. The average harness in north Florida is 18-22. With a Natursorb softener it is 0
MIXED BED CARBON TANK. Carbon filters only deal with contaminants. Activated carbon remove chemicals, such as chlorine, that affect the quality of your water and your health. It also filters out chlorine byproducts, VOC's and at least 81 other chemicals and reduces 52 others. Activated carbon removes all 12 identified herbicides and 14 pesticides along with 32 identified organic contaminates. the mixed bed also contains KDF process media which can remove up to 99% of water soluble lead, mercury, nickel, chromium and other dissolved metals. KDF is also effective in controlling buildup of bacteria, algae, fungi and scale. The Natursorb mixed bed carbon filter is the only way to go for clean safe water.
