Water Purification Technology Comparisons

  • Charcoal Filters - Come in powdered or granular form which allows water to flow around rather than through the carbon. These are often referred to as "taste and odor filters" and can promote the growth of bacteria.
  • Silver-Charcoal Filters - Same as above however uses silver to inhibit bacterial growth.
  • Distillation - Removes dissolved minerals and trace elements essential to good health: distilled water will actually pull minerals out of the body. Chemicals can vaporize and recondense into the distilled water. Requires electricity and is a daily chore to provide enough water for the family.
  • Reverse Osmosis (R/O) - No independent ability to remove most dissolved chemicals, takes up to 24 hours to process 5 gallons of water, must have a holding tank to store processed water, uses 3 to 9 gallons for every gallon processed, removes minerals and trace elements essential for good health (see Distillation above).
  • Bottled Water - 70% of bottled water is reprocessed tap water (both tap and bottled water have to meet the same standards). It is inconvenient and expensive (Costs range from $200 to $400 annually for bottled water).
  • Solid Carbon Block System - Does not remove valuable minerals and trace elements essential to good health, every molecule of water is forced to penetrate the carbon for maximum efficiency, filters down to the sub-micron range (0.5 micron), no electricity required, replaceable filter is economical and easy to change, NSF and UL Certified to reduce one of the widest range of contaminants of health concern. The filters are good for approximately 750 gal., depending on the overall quality of water. The Solid Carbon Block System comes with a 30 day unconditional satisfaction guarantee, 25 year housing warranty on the canister and 12 month accessories warranty.

    Solid Carbon Drinking Water System VS Bottled Water

    Solid Carbon Drinking Water System

    Delivered Bottled Water

    Unlimited Quantity

    5 gallons per bottle

    51 cents per gal. (1st year)

    $1.40 per gallon (avg. cost per bottle)

    7 cents per gallon after 1st year

    $1.40 per gallon (avg. cost per bottle)
