Activated Carbon Filtration process

The UKF8001 filtration system employs the state of the art and scientifically engineered process which utilizes activated carbon to systematically separate all impurities contained in water coming out of your tap system. Activated carbon technique facilitates the absorption of water impurities leading to extremely safe and clean drinking water for your family. The thorough filtration procedure starts from the initial moment when water flows into the filtration chamber. As more water enters the chamber, mounting pressure forces water through a container which contains the activated carbon substance. What happens next is an absorption of impurities such as mold, bacteria, lead, asbestos cysts, chlorine and others. These residues are generally too small to be picked up through the human eye, but are generally present in tap water as a whole. The activated carbon holds back the impurities as the water goes through the chamber, a process that produces refreshingly clean, clear, safe and healthy water for human consumption.
