What Do Water Filters Remove?



What could be in your water?

As water makes its way through our world and through your city's water system, it collects impurities and contaminants both from pipes, homes, farms and the natural world. 

    • Chlorine
    • Heavy metals such as lead & mercury
    • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) 
    • Chemicals
    • Pharmaceuticals 
    • BPA
    • Pesticides & insecticides  

Is bottled water safe to drink?

Bottled water is often held to even less strict safety regulations than tap water. Plus, every time you fill up a reusable bottle from your fridge, that's one more plastic bottle that stays out of the landfill. For safer, pure water that's better for your family and the environment, trust your home fridge filter.  

How do activated carbon filters work?

 Activated carbon technology filters contaminants in three ways:

  1. First, the large internal surface area physically traps sediments and contaminants. 
  2. Then, activated carbon acts like a magnet for compounds like lead and volatile organic compounds as water passes through. 
  3. Finally, chemical reactions inside the filter reduce chemicals like chlorine on contact.
