Even drinking water that contains no toxins can still have an unpleasant taste or odor. Nuisance contaminants often present in tap water — including common additives like chlorine — can cause this unwelcome change. Meanwhile, well water may contain sulfuric gases that give water a “rotten egg” smell.
The most effective method for removing all these compounds is with carbon filtering. Carbon is scientifically proven to absorb a broad array of chemicals and additives, including the ones that most commonly cause strong taste and odor in drinking water. The 20” standard taste and odor cartridges from Pentek offer consumers a versatile option for home water filtration. Pentek water filters set the standard for purity, efficiency, and durability.
