eSpring™ WATER TREATMENT TECHNOLOGY COMPARISON
A comprehensive list of current water filtration technologies, along with the pros and cons of each.
PRESSED CARBON BLOCK/UV LIGHT
Water is forced under pressure through pressed activated carbon filter material. Water is then exposed to ultraviolet light.
Pressurized water is forced through a semipermeable membrane. Water is typically collected in a storage tank and dispensed with a separate faucet.
Heating of water until it turns to steam. Vapor is cooled and condenses back to liquid water.
DISINFECTION - CHLORINE
Water is treated with chlorine chemicals, a process commonly used by municipal treatment centers.
DISINFECTION - OZONE
Ozone gas (O3) is generated by corona discharge or Ultraviolet (UV light) and bubbled through water.
Used to trap and replace negatively charged ions, such as nitrates, perchlorate, fluoride, radium, ammonia and arsenic.
Tap water passes through chambers with electrodes to split water molecules into ions. End users are able to select the pH desired.
Water is purchased in plastic or glass bottles from a store or water vendor.
Water is boiled for 20 minutes, then cooled to drinking temperatures.
