Carbon Filtration in Santa Clarita & Surrounding Areas

Leave Your Water Treatment Needs to Pro Water Solutions

Carbon, the fourth most abundant element in the universe, is key to making literally thousands of compounds. Carbon is the key element in all living things, as well as diamonds, the hardest natural substance on Earth, and graphite, one of the softest natural substances on Earth. Carbon is extremely versatile in what it will bond with and how it will create that bond – and this is what makes it valuable for water filtration. Carbon applied correctly is the best way to remove any poison or disinfectant your city adds to the water for disinfection.

Carbon filtration has long been used to absorb a wide variety of impurities in water. “Activated carbon” is more “powerful” than ordinary carbon. Activated carbon is ordinary carbon that has been processed to have a small electrically positive charge. This positive charge makes ordinary carbon even more effective over a broader range of impurities. Catalytic carbon is used for specifically removing chloramines. Chloramines are compounds created by the city adding ammonia to chlorine. The byproduct of that chemical marriage is called a chloramine. Chloramines are very bad for your health and cause leaks in copper pipe.

Carbon filtration removes contaminants from water in two primary ways:

  • Attraction of negatively charged particles to the positively charged carbon (chlorine and chloramines are removed in this way)
  • Adsorption, which removes organic compounds (adsorption is the attachment of gas or liquid molecules to the surface of another substance—carbon, in the case of water filtration)

    Sizing Carbon Filtration Equipment

    Common sense says that the more carbon in the filter, and the longer the water is in contact with the carbon, the higher the efficiency of the carbon filtration unit will be.

    And this is, in fact, true. Carbon filtration units must be correctly sized so water will have sufficient time for the carbon to do its job. Bigger does not mean better. A Pro Water Solutions professional will be happy to assist you in this process.

    Some factors to consider in sizing your system include:

    • The size of your home
    • The number of bathrooms in your home
    • The number of people living in your home
    • The size of the pipe where the carbon filtration will be installed
    • The size of the contaminant particles

    Choosing the Right Type of Filter

    Many of the carbon filtration units on the market today are canister-type filtration cartridges that need to be changed frequently. An example of this is the water filter you probably have in your refrigerator. Water flows through the carbon cartridge in your refrigerator filter, which removes sediment and some aggressive chemicals like chlorine, ammonia, and chloramines.

    There are two main problems with cartridge carbon filters:

    • The ongoing cost of replacing the filter cartridge. General Electric recommends replacing the filter cartridge every 6 months at an MSRP of $40.55 per cartridge. That’s $81.10 every year.
    • Water simply doesn’t have enough contact time with the small amount of carbon media in that little filter to do much “filtering.”

    At Pro Water Solutions, we recommend a whole-house carbon filtration system that will periodically rinse (backwash) the carbon media. This is like removing the carbon media, cleaning it, and reinstalling it. Imagine how much longer that expensive little $40 refrigerator filter would last if you could take it apart, clean it, and reinstall it!

    Our carbon filtration equipment is self-cleaning and supplies water to your entire house, not just your refrigerator’s water faucet. It treats about 2,000,000 gallons of water (roughly the amount of water in 66 typical in-ground swimming pools). That amount of water, according to NSF (National Sanitation Foundation), will last a family of four 10 years, or two people for 20 years.
