Studies by the EPA and NSF claim granular activated carbon will remove:
- Removal of 60 to 80 chemicals, effective reduction of another 30 or moderate reduction of 22. The range of effectiveness depends on the quality of the activated carbon, and how it is applied. Smaller carbon filters are to be used with low water pressure. It takes larger tanks to do higher water pressure to be effective.
- About 95% of chlorine can be removed with quality whole house filters. It will remove the chlorine bi-products such as the Vocs and THMs (these are the ones identified as potentially cancerous) Granular activated carbon is the most effective way to do this.
- Pesticides are removed according to EPA 14 of the most common.
