  • Activated carbon (AC) filtration is most effective in removing organic contaminants from water. Organic substances are composed of two basic elements, carbon and hydrogen. Because organic chemicals are often responsible for taste, odor, and color problems, AC filtration can generally be used to improve aesthetically objectional water. AC filtration will also remove chlorine. AC filtration is recognized by the Water Quality Association as an acceptable method to maintain certain drinking water contaminants within the limits of the EPA National Drinking Water Standards. AC filtration does NOT remove microbes, sodium, nitrates, fluoride, and hardness. Lead and other heavy metals are removed only by a very specific type of AC filter. Unless the manufacturer states that its product will remove heavy metals, the consumer should assume that the AC filter is not effective in removing them.

  • Yes. The easiest way is to pour the carbon into a separate container. cut small holes in the bottom of the product container. Place a coffee filter over the holes. Pour the carbon back into the container. Cut a hole into the lid large enough to put a funnel into. Screw the lid back on. Place the container over a water container, put a funnel in the top, and simply pour water into the funnel. As the water passes though the carbon, it will be filtered and ready to drink as it comes out of the bottom. You can even skip the funnel if you like and just pour directly in. Don't skip the coffee filter, as it will keep small particles out of your water.
