Most water companies out there are using a carbon based filter. Most companies out there will leave it just at that without much explanation. Maybe you're wondering to yourself "How exactly do carbon filters work and why does it have to be carbon?" Carbon filtering is a method of filtering that uses a bed of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities, using chemical adsorption. It does this by absorption: pollutant molecules in the fluid to be treated are trapped inside the pore structure [...]
Here at One Water Systems we are all about having the cleanest and healthiest drinking water around. However, there has been a new trend that we just can't look past. Raw water is starting to become a thing and we disagree with it. Raw water refers to unfiltered, untreated and unsterilized water that’s collected from a spring or the atmosphere. While the water flowing in the streams and rivers of the back-country may look pure, it can still be contaminated with [...]
The reason we measure pH (potential of hydrogen) is to tell how acidic or alkaline that substance is. Having the right pH levels is essential to a lot of things. For example, most alcoholic beverages have a pH under 7, or acidic, whereas most aquariums have a pH that is over 7, or alkaline. A well-maintained pH is essential to many things we do and use on a daily basis. The reading is taken based off of the ion activity [...]
