Activated carbon is widely used in filtration systems, from air filters to blood filters. It’s essentially a form of charcoal with a very high surface area. This adsorbs a wide range of molecules that it encounters. Activated carbon filtration systems for water can trap and remove a large percentage of impurities in water. It is a cost-effective way to get rid of annoying impurities, bad smells, and bad tastes.
Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that uses a semi-permeable membrane (synthetic lining) to filter out unwanted molecules and large particles such as contaminants and sediments like chlorine, salt, and dirt from drinking water. In addition to removing contaminants and sediments, reverse osmosis can also remove microorganisms – which you certainly do not want to drink. It gets water clean down to a molecular level, leaving only pure H2O behind.
