Chemical oxidation can include the following oxidizers: chlorine, ozone, hydrogen peroxide, permanganate, and even air. In many cases, the choice of oxidizing agent is dependent upon the pH of the water. Because these processes may form solid oxide particles, the chemical oxidation process should include an adequate contact time to fully oxidize and produce the solid oxide particles and filtration to remove them. Oxidation can also be accomplished through the use of specialized media such as zeolites, KDF, Birm, Filter Ag, MTM, and Corosex. These systems are most commonly used to treat problems with Iron, Manganese, and Sulfur compounds.
We recommend that, prior to installing a CounterTop POU (Point-of-Use) Unit, you Get Informed by gathering as much information as possible and Get Tested by conducting multiple levels of testing depending on your needs: Level 1 Observational Testing using our Self Test Web App, Level 2 Do-It-Yourself Testing, Level 3 Informational Lab Testing and, if needed, Level 4 Certified Testing conducted by a water professional.
