The APEX Whole Home Granular Activated Carbon Filter System uses granular activated carbon to adsorb impurities from well and municipal water sources. Activated carbon has a unique microscopic pore structure that adsorbs chlorine disinfectants, which cause offensive tastes and odor problems in tap water. The chlorine disinfection process also leaves cancer-causing organic byproducts, called trihalomethanes (THMs), in your drinking water. The Whole Home Granular Activated Carbon Filter System strips carcinogenic THMs from tap water, protecting you, your family and pets. The filter also removes organic contaminants like herbicides, insecticides and industrial chemicals that can contaminate groundwater. Naturally occurring organics (geosmin and 2-methylisoborneol), which cause musty, earthy odors, are also adsorbed by the filter system. Accidental gasoline spills, chemical contamination and industrial leaks containing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be a threat to your family’s health. The APEX filter provides real protection and peace of mind for you and your family. Even pets will appreciate drinking and bathing water free of chlorine and other tastes and odors. The APEX Activated Carbon Filter System is suitable for home and commercial water filtration needs. The large capacity and high flow rate makes the Whole Home Granular Activated Carbon Filter System ideal for whole house applications as well as apartment complexes, offices and restaurants. Chlorine and other taste and odor contaminants affect ice machines, beverage dispensers, coffee makers and other food preparation operations. The Whole Home Granular Activated Carbon Filter System is also recommended for dental offices, sensitive laboratory equipment and manufacturing facilities where purified water is essential.
