Granular Activated Carbon is one of the most common and effective forms of carbon and has a huge surface area (approx. 500,000 square meters in the 10” Jumbo cartridge – eg. a spoonful equates to the area of a Rugby field) which adsorbs hazardous contaminants from water and air. KP Water use the best quality coconut GAC in their filter cartridges to remove chlorine, chlorine by-products, pesticides and many other contaminants.
