      What Exactly is Sediment? Sediment occurs naturally as particles from the earth (such as dirt, rocks and minerals) are broken down through weathering and erosion. Not only does sediment consist of minerals, rocks, sand, it and can also consist of organic particles from plants and microbes. If you’ve ever noticed a yellowish ‘color’ or (murky) cloudiness to municipal or well water, this is usually caused by sediments. Dissolved solids (organic or inorganic) are also considered sediments, and these may or may not be seen with the naked eye.  

      How can Sediments Affect Me? Sediment can affect the quality of water by causing wear-and-tear to indoor plumbing, water pumps, and water appliances (such as washing machines, dishwashers and refrigerator ice makers). Sediment can clog your pipes or water system resulting in reduced water flow, or even the breakdown of appliances.  Sediment can also be a potential health risk… pathogens attach themselves to sediment and can hitch a ride right into your drinking water. These waterborne contaminants include microbes such as bacteria, viruses, and protozoa; pollutants such as fertilizers and pesticides; and dissolved metals like mercury, lead, and arsenic.

      Why is Carbon Used to Filter Water? Carbon is probably the most absorbent material known to man. It’s widely used in water filtration AND air filtration. Carbon’s uniqueness comes from its ability to adsorb impurities into its thousands of tiny pores. In fact, 1 pound of carbon has a filtering surface area of 100 football fields.  

      Granular Activated Carbon – Activated carbon is produced by heating organic matter, such as coal, wood or coconut shell, in the absence of air, which is then crushed into carbon granules. Because activated carbon is positively charged it’s able to remove negatively charged contaminants from water such as chlorine, fluorides and dissolved organic solutes by absorption.

      What is a Carbon Block Filter? If you cut open a carbon block filter, you’d notice that it appears to be just that – a block of carbon. It’s actually tightly compressed carbon powder. The denser (more compressed) the carbon powder, the longer time the water is in contact with the carbon, the higher the contaminant or micron removal rate. Carbon block filtration is the most effective type of carbon filtration for waterborne contaminant removal.
