There numerous drinking water purification methods available today, and they all rely on different methods to treat and purify water. The most popular water filtration methods include:
Activated Carbon Filters:- these use a bed of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities via chemical absorption.
Distillation Filters :- These use a heat source to vaporize and purify water.
Deionization Filters:- These exchange positive hydrogen and negative hydroxyl water molecules for positive and negative contaminant water molecules.
Ion exchange Filters:- These ‘soften’ water by removing its heavy metal ions
Reverse Osmosis Filters:- These move water through a semipermeable membrane to filter out and flush away even the smallest contaminants.
Mechanical Filter:- These Physically remove sediment, dirt or any particles in water by using a basic mesh or ceramic screen.
Ozone Filters:- These purify and disinfect water by removing odors, chlorine, iron, and bacteria.
Alkaline Filters:- These Alkalize and demineralize water.
Here at The Water People, the best water filtration methods we recommend are Reverse Osmosis Filters and Alkaline Filters. Each has it’s own unique set of pros and cons.
