Chloramine Kitchen 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. While there is plenty on the web to say carbon can filter it, carbon alone will not do as much as when it is combined with kdf-85. Or more specifically, you need 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.
Every one of our kitchen canister water filters removes many hundreds of contaminants including chlorine, organic-based contaminants like hormones, chemical-based drugs, arsenic, lead, heavy metals, chlorination by-products like trihalomethanes, and pesticides 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.
