The only reliable way to remove chemicals in our water supply is through distillation. Distillation is a very straightforward concept: You boil off the water, and all the undesirable “extras” are left behind. To do the job correctly, however, there is an extra step.
The extra step has to do with removing the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that boil off before the water. (More properly, the compounds have what’s called a lower vapor pressure than water. The effect is the same—they evaporate before the water does.)
We use a Kemflo Activated Post Carbon Filter to removes VOCs. This carbon filter also removes Benzene, Bromoform, Chlorine, Herbicides, Pesticides, Radon, and THMs.
