Granular Activated Carbon Filters (GAC) are well-known for efficiently reducing chemical compounds, foul tastes, and smells from water. These filters remove and reduce organic and industrial chemicals that seep into water sources and through plumbing. All Ronaqua GAC filters are made with high-quality coconut shell carbon crushed into positively charged granules. The positively charged granules in the filter remove negative ions from the water, such as chlorine, fluorides, ozone, and dissolved organic solutes, effectively providing good general-purpose drinking water.

These filters are constructed to allow water to enter one end and pass through the entire length of the carbon bed before exiting through the other end of the cartridge, while an internal expansion pad minimizes channeling or bypass before the water exits the cartridge.

What is Granular Activated Carbon? This is a type of charcoal that has minuscule pores that absorbs organic compounds as it allows water to pass through it.

Chlorine removal is what granular carbon is best at, and nothing else equals carbon’s ability to remove chlorine.

What is Granular Activated Carbon?

Granular Activated Carbon is created from organic raw materials that are high in carbon. Such materials include wood, coal, and lignite – a type of brown coal made from naturally compressed peat. Activated Carbon effectively absorbs pollutants and particulars because it is highly porous and provides a large surface area that allows it to continue to take in particles found in the water that can negatively affect your health. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recognizes activated carbon in the use of absorbing organic compounds, taste and odor compounds, and synthetic chemicals in the treatment of drinking water.
