Residential Point of Use and Entry Water Treatment

The quality of water can vary widely from area to area, and even from residence to residence. A point-of-use (POU) filter may be desired or required to remove unwanted taste, odor and contaminants from drinking water.

Residential Point of Use and Entry Water Treatment

Drinking Water Contaminated with Perfluorinated Compounds (PFOA, PFC, PFOs)

If you are concerned about your well water or private water system being contaminated with PFOA, make sure you are asking for the RIGHT carbon filtration system. Calgon Carbon’s FILTRASORB Activated Carbon has been used to remove perfluorinated compounds for 15 years. We only work with a select network of installers to return your water to safe drinking levels.



Residential Point of Use and Entry Water Treatment

Commercial, industrial and residential buildings may also employ carbon filters at the point of entry (POE), to treat the water before it reaches the many end users.

Calgon Carbon’s manufacturing processes for the activated carbons used for POU/POE purification have been engineered to provide customers with consistent, high quality products. Calgon Carbon offers a range of coconut based activated carbon products for POU/POE purification and is one of the only producers of coal-based carbons for POU/POE drinking water filters. While coconut based carbons are often used for taste and odor removal, these coal based products have innately better material handling properties allowing you to run faster and more efficiently along with the associated adsorption benefits of a reagglomerated coal product.

Our POU/POE carbons have been certified to meet the rigorous and comprehensive NSF-42/Prop-65 Standards demonstrating the quality, reliability and performance of our products. Calgon Carbon is proud to offer a variety of high quality, cost effective solutions for POU and POE filter applications.
