Multipure Water Contaminant Reduction

Multipure Drinking Water Systems Lead the Industry in Contaminant Reduction

Contaminants mechanically filtered by the Solid Carbon Block filter:

• Asbestos – mineral once used in building insulation; known to cause cancer
• Cysts – dormant microorganisms that may include bacteria and parasites
• Particulates – miscellaneous physical particles that can cause turbidity (general water cloudiness)

Contaminants chemically adsorbed or reduced by the Solid Carbon Block filter:

• Radon – A radioactive, colorless, odorless, tasteless gas
• Chlordane – used as a pesticide
• Lead and mercury – types of metals; known neurotoxins that can poison the blood, nervous system, and brain
• MTBE (methyl tert-butyl ether) – used as a gasoline additive
• PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) – a fluid used in many electrical components
• Toxaphene – a banned, highly toxic insecticide
• VOCs – volatile organic compounds

Contaminants reduced through chemical reaction:

• Chlorine and chloramine – chemicals often used as disinfectants
