Chloramine Kitchen Water Filters / Chloramine Water Filters
Keep your home and family safe by removing the chloramine from your water with filters from Friends of Water.
Some areas now add ammonia to the municipal water supply. They are doing this for two reasons. The first is in recognition of some scientific study results that suggest the byproducts of chlorine are carcinogenic. The other is that adding ammonia changes the chemistry of chlorine so that it continues to serve as a disinfectant, but in its new form lasts much longer. The form it takes on is chloramines. By definition, it is considerably harder to remove chloramine than chlorine.
Chloramine is most efficiently filtered out by the combined use of FOAM ADVANTAGE kdf-85 and granulated catalytic carbon. There is plenty on the web to say carbon can filter it out. But carbon alone will not do nearly as much filtering as when it is combined with kdf-85. To say it another way, you need far more catalytic carbon than fits in a canister to do the job if it isn’t combined with FOAM kdf. Kdf-85 breaks the bond between ammonia and chlorine – the two chemicals making up chloramine – which allows the right carbon (catalytic) to much more readily absorb them. Fluoride is also hard to remove and you must have the correct filter material. Fluoride is part of a metallic compound in our water, and the attraction of a metallic substance with opposite magnetism can remove it. Every metal has a charge, either positive or negative, and each can be either strong or weak.
Please see the factory tests for chloramine removal with this whole house chloramine tank. Kitchen chloramine filters will deliver similar results as the media is use in the amounts to the water flow.
Every one of our kitchen canister water filters removes over 600 contaminants including chlorine, organic-based contaminants like hormones, chemical-based drugs, arsenic, lead, heavy metals, chlorination by-products like trihalomethanes, and pesticides. Filtration happens in much the same way that Mother Earth uses the minerals in the rocks and ground to clean water as it runs through to the aquifers.
