Other Water Treatment Technologies

Compare Other Water Treatment Methods to Multipure Solid Carbon Block Filters

End of Tap (Faucet Mount)

  • Low filter capacity
  • Frequent filter changes needed, resulting in ongoing filter replacement costs
  • Reduces some contaminants of health concern

    Carafe/Pitcher (Pour-through)

  • Reduces some contaminants of health concern, but not Volatile Organic Chemicals
  • Inconvenient to use – water must be poured through the filter and then refrigerated while you wait
  • Low capacity requires frequent filter changes
  • Must replace filters about every 40 gallons at $7-$10 each, or $130-$190 for 750 gallons (Multipure’s 750-gallon replacement filter is only $90)

    Reverse Osmosis

  • No independent ability to reduce most Volatile Organic Chemicals
  • Very low output – take up to 24 hours to process 5 gallons of water
  • Must have holding tank to store the processed water
  • Wastes water – for every gallon processed, 3 to 9 gallons are wasted
  • Removes minerals and trace elements essential to good health

    Charcoal Filters

  • These come in powdered or granulated form, which allows water to flow around rather than through the carbon
  • Referred to as “taste and odor filters” because of the limited contact time the water has with the carbon
  • Can promote the growth of bacteria

    Silver-Charcoal Filters

  • Same as Charcoal Filters above; however, uses silver to inhibit the growth of bacteria while water sits in filter
  • Silver ingested in certain doses can be poisonous to the human body; therefore, it must be registered with the EPA as containing a poisonous substance

    Limited Media Filters

  • As the demand for quality drinking water continues to grow, new types of media will be test-marketed, from metal shavings to coconut shells
  • Some materials can be quite ”exceptional” in reducing a particular contaminant in the water, but there is a wide range of contaminants that should be addressed – not just one or two


  • Removes dissolved minerals and trace elements essential to good health
  • No independent ability to remove all chemicals – the chemicals can vaporize and recondense into the distilled water
  • Daily chore to provide enough water for the entire family
  • Requires electricity at a cost of about $240 per year
