What is a carbon block water filter? What are its advantages?
Carbon block is a type of charcoal filter that is so densely compressed that even microscopic bacteria cannot penetrate. Unlike loose granular charcoal filters that are inexpensive and commonly found in supermarkets or hardware stores, these filters force water to penetrate through an enormous surface area. Due to a special activating process, complex geometric lattices are created that increase the adsorptive area. If flattened out, it would cover the surface of a tennis court! Since charcoal is like a sponge for chlorine, pesticides, gases, and many other organic compounds, the more time water spends going through it, the cleaner it gets. But the more advanced carbon block designs can also remove very high percentages of heavy metals such as lead, and bacteria and cysts such as E. coli, protozoa, giardia, and cryptosporidium.
