Disinfection Byproducts in Drinking Water
Disinfection Byproducts Removal
An issue you may need to be concerned about when it comes to your drinking water is dealing with disinfection byproducts. There are a number of contaminants that can result from the water disinfection process, and you likely don’t want you and your family to have these in the water you drink, clean, cook or bathe with.
To protect yourself, consider a CB Tech Drinking Water Filtration System such as the CB-VOC, CB-As and Water Guardian. Our products are extremely effective at disinfection byproducts reduction or removal.
Why It Is Important to Have a Water Filter That Removes or Reduces Disinfection Byproducts in Drinking Water
Disinfection is a necessary part of water treatment, and approved disinfection methods destroy many bacteria that could potentially infect the public with water-borne illnesses. Unfortunately, the action of the disinfectant, usually chlorine, often creates some unwanted byproducts, called disinfection byproducts, or DBPs.
Among the most dangerous of these DBPs are trihalomethanes — chloroform, bromodichloromethane, dibromochloromethane and bromoform. These four chemicals have been linked to colorectal cancer and are Group B carcinogens. DBPs like these can also have a negative effect on the environment. That means it is ideal to have as little of these contaminants as possible in your drinking water.
CB Tech Water Filtration Systems Are Certified for Contaminant Protection
Since disinfection is necessary for water, how can you protect yourself? The answer is through the use of CB Tech’s products for drinking water filtration. Our CB-VOC, CB-As, Water Guardian and other water filtration products contain our proprietary solid carbon block filters. The combination of the carbon block and methods like electrokinetic adsorption, physiochemical adsorption and mechanical filtration allow our products to filter out a large concentration of a wide range of contaminants and disinfection byproducts before that water reaches you.
You can be confident in the fact that our products will significantly reduce the concentrations of these contaminants by checking our NSF certifications. NSF International is a highly-respected independent water filtration testing organization with a history and a reputation dating back over 70 years. Our CB Tech drinking water filtration products are verified with certifications such as NSF/ANSI Standard 42 for Aesthetic Effects, NSF/ANSI Standard 53 for Health Effects and NSF 401 for Emerging Compounds and Incidental Contaminants.
Enjoy Safer, Purer Water and Protect Yourself From Disinfection Byproducts With CB Tech
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has strict limits on the concentration of trihalomethanes and other DBPs that are acceptable in your water, but we at CB Tech feel that an acceptable level of these carcinogens should be much lower. If you agree, we have a range of products to protect your water. There’s no reason to wait for cleaner, purer, safer water. We’re happy to help whether you’re ready to order a CB Tech water filtration system or you’d like to find out more about which system might be best for your needs. We can also custom formulate a water filtration or purification solution for you. Contact us today.
