This was necessary to increase capacity and to meet future more stringent requirements set by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for Unami Creek.
How can someone protect himself from consuming water contaminated with Cryptosporidium or other microorganisms? One durable and competitively priced option is ceramic filters.Until recently, the United States was essentially a carbon filter market, in that chlorine, dirt, foul taste and odor were thought to be the only problems with drinking water. With the advent of the Cryptosporidium parvum outbreak in Milwaukee in 1993, the general public and water treatment dealers started to question the quality of municipally treated water and private wells.
Filtration is an important part of most water treatment systems. Filters range from simple cartridge systems to large commercial/industrial multi-tank systems, not to mention the large municipal systems that filter drinking water.
Shower filter dechlorination requires its own unique design approach to meet various health requirements.In less than 10 years, shower filters have grown from a non-industry to a significant niche market. Consumers, at first only concerned with the quality of their drinking water, are now more aware of the importance of removing chlorine, one of nature's most toxic elements, from their shower water, too.
