Short-Term Gain, Long-Term Pain

Granular activated carbon (GAC) is the great equalizer, providing superb filtration for a wide range of end-user concerns. It is a versatile, high-capacity powerhouse medium that can reduce and capture a multitude of contaminants. Its massive surface area and physical structure allow for contaminant reduction, primarily via adsorption, catalytic reduction and physical filtration.

  • The body of a water softener is a tank filled with resin beads; these beads are covered with sodium ions. As hard water passes through, the resin beads act like a magnet, attracting the calcium and magnesium ions (hardness) in exchange for the sodium ions. Eventually the resin beads become saturated with mineral ions and have to be “recharged.” This process is called regeneration and is conducted...
