Best Water Filter Options For Apartment or House Renters

The best water filter options for those living in apartments or rented houses are limited to countertop and pitcher filters. You wish you can filter water at point of entry but your lease does not permit you to install a permanent water filtering system or the lease simply prevents you from tampering with the plumbing system in the house or apartment. 

Fortunately, you can install a water filter through another method. Water filters come in different brands, types, and capacities to meet your specific needs. You can install a treatment system at the point of use without cutting into the plumbings. 

Filters that do not need plumbing works are carafes or pitchers, faucet-mount, and countertop. A showerhead filter is good for the bathroom if you feel itchy after you shower to remove the chlorine that cause itchiness and scaly skin.

Treating Water Top Invention

Treating water for human consumption tops list of notable inventions

VISTA, Calif. — A new survey of chemical engineers, published by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (ICHemE), reports that the ability to treat water so that it can be used for human consumption is the most significant invention in the modern era, according to a press release.  

Beyond simply treating water, this involves such innovations as desalination as well as solar-powered systems that can be used to purify and disinfect water in developing countries with very hot climates, added Klaus Reichardt, CEO and founder of Waterless Co., maker of no-water urinal systems.

Using a short list, which included more than 40 important inventions, continued the release, the chemical engineers identified the following “solutions,” as they called them, that have had the most impact on society in at least the past century: Treating water for drinking; gasoline and related fuels; antibiotics; electricity generation from fossil fuels; vaccines; plastic; fertilizers; sanitation; electricity generation from non-fossil fuels; and dosed medications.


Silver nanowire filters clean water

Posted by Carole Allen on March 22, 2014 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (0)


Water filters comprising silver nanowires and carbon nanotubes could render water safe to drink by quickly and cheaply killing disease-causing bacteria. The filters also benefit from large pore size, which mean they do not get clogged nearly as quickly and do not need electric pumps to push water through them

Water filters comprising silver nanowires
This illustration from nano.gov gives visual examples of the size and the scale of nanotechnology, showing us just how small nanotechnology actually is.and carbon nanotubes could render water safe to drink by quickly and cheaply killing disease-causing bacteria.
(A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter. In comparison, a human hair is about 100,000 nanometers in diameter).
The filters also benefit from large pore size, which mean they do not get clogged nearly as quickly and do not need electric pumps to push water through them.
The nanofilters were developed by researchers at Stanford University, US, using a cotton cloth as the base for the design. Silver nanowires were grown by reducing AgCl in poly(vinylpyridine) with ethylene glycol, followed by slow addition of silver nitrate. The mesh of silver nanowires was then laid over the cotton and then dipped in an 'ink' of carbon nanotubes, which coated the filter. An electric current was run through the filter and tests with water contaminated with high levels of E coli showed that it killed more than 98% of the bacteria. Without the electric field the killing power of the nanofilter is almost completely destroyed (Nano Letters, 2010, 10, 3628).
The researchers theorise that the filter is so effective at killing bacteria because the electric current substantially increases the levels of free silver ions. Silver has been shown to be an effective antibacterial agent, although the exact reason is still unclear, although it is likely to interfere with key enzymes and cell membrane viability.
Sudipta Seal, who has developed water nanofilters at the University of Central Florida, US, says that he would not include carbon nanotubes in any water filter he was building. He says that toxicity issues with the nanotubes would be too big a risk.
T Pradeep, a professor of nanoscience at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, says the filter is interesting as it uses electricity to augment silver's antibacterial action, but it is not ready for the real world yet. 'This approach suffers from various disadvantages, such as use of electricity (applying 20V); battery discharge due to water electrolysis at such high voltages; use of carbon nanotubes; and inadequate antibacterial action.'

Background
A filter with granular activated carbon (GAC) is a proven option to remove certain chemicals, particularly organic chemicals, from water.  GAC filters also can be used to remove chemicals that give objectionable odors or tastes to water such as hydrogen sulfide (rotten eggs odor) or chlorine.

However, other chemicals, like iron and nitrate, are not attracted to the carbon and are not removed and another type of filter, such as reverse osmosis (RO) or green sand may be needed.  RO filters will also remove certain organic chemicals. This information sheet only addresses GAC filters.

Go to > top

What is granular activated carbon (GAC)?
Granular activated carbon is made from raw organic materials (such as coconut shells or coal) that are high in carbon. Heat, in the absence of oxygen, is used to increase (activate) the surface area of the carbon; this is why these filters are sometimes referred to as “charcoal” filters. The activated carbon removes certain chemicals that are dissolved in water passing through a filter containing GAC by trapping (adsorbing) the chemical in the GAC.

It is very important that the type and concentration of contaminants, and average water use, be known in order to determine the correct size and components of the system. All treatment systems require proper installation and periodic maintenance. Eventually, the ability of the GAC to bind and remove chemicals is used up and the GAC needs to be changed. How often the GAC should be changed needs to be based on contaminant levels and water use.  While some filters may last for several years if contaminant levels and/or water use are low, higher levels or use may require more frequent change-outs.

GAC water filter system

What kind of GAC filters systems are there?

There are two types of GAC filter systems:

1. Whole-House Filters or Point of Entry:
 A whole-house filter is installed at a point on the home’s water supply plumbing that will result in treatment of all water that travels to any faucet or fixture in the home (but typically will exclude outside faucets to prolong the life of the carbon). It removes the chemicals before they can be ingested, breathed in, or absorbed by the skin during washing or bathing.

The filters are usually cylindrical in shape. The example shown in the photo is about 4-feet tall and 15 inches in diameter.  The filters are usually installed as a pair, although more may be required in some situations. Two filters arranged in sequence ensure that any chemical that might get past the first filter is trapped by the second.

When the first filter is used up, the second filter is moved to the first position and a new filter is placed in the second position. Sample ports located before, between, and after the filters allow for testing of the water at each location (see diagram on the next page).

Most systems also have a bypass switch that allows the water flow to bypass the system when needed for chlorination or certain plumbing activities. When the system is bypassed, the water entering the home is NOT being filtered.

GAC water filter diagram

Go to > top

2. Point of Use Filters:
A point of use (POU) filter is installed in the water supply pipe just before the faucet where people get water.

One example is an under-sink unit; water passes through the carbon filter and travels to a separate water tap, next to the main faucet. Water from the separate tap will be GAC-treated, and water from the main faucet (hot or cold) will be untreated.

Other examples of point of use filters are the GAC pitcher filters commonly sold in grocery stores or GAC filters that are a part of a refrigerator’s icemaker.

Go to > top

Which type of GAC filter system do I need?
Which system you need depends on:

  • The type and amount of contaminants in the water,
  • Other chemicals in the water,
  • Water use, and
  • Exposure pathways that need to be eliminated.

Exposure pathways are... the ways chemicals enter your body.

Some chemicals may cause harm if they are ingetsted, some if they are breathed in and some if they enter through the skin. Sometimes people are exposed through a combination of exposure pathways.

 

An under-sink filter… protects people from ingesting the chemical by treating the drinking or cooking water only from that tap. It will not protect people from inhaling the chemical while showering or bathing, prevent the chemical from being absorbed through the skin, or protect other water faucets. Inhalation is a concern when the chemical easily evaporates from the water into the air.  Not all contaminants easily evaporate into the air or are absorbed through the skin.

A whole-house filter system… treats all water traveling to any faucet or fixture in the home. It removes the chemical before it can be ingested, breathed in, or absorbed by the skin during washing or bathing.

  • For all work on your filter system, use only a licensed plumber or licensed water conditioning contractor.
  • For either type of filter system, consistent maintenance and periodic filter replacement is essential to ensure effectiveness and prevent   bacterial build-up.
  • It is recommended that water treatment systems be tested and certified to national standards by a reputable testing laboratory, such as NSF.
  • The Minnesota Water Quality Association (www.mwqa.com/) also has information about water treatment systems.

Water Issues

Posted by Carole Allen on February 10, 2014 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Water

Clean and plentiful water provides the foundation for prosperous communities. We rely on clean water to survive, yet right now we are heading towards a water crisis. Changing climate patterns are threatening lakes and rivers, and key sources that we tap for drinking water are being overdrawn or tainted with pollution. NRDC experts are helping to secure safe and sufficient water for people and the environment by:

  • Promoting water efficiency strategies to help decrease the amount of water wasted;
  • Protecting our water from pollution by defending the Clean Water Act and advocating for solutions like green infrastructure;
  • Helping prepare cities, counties and states for water-related challenges they will face as a result of climate change; and
  • Ensuring that waterways have enough water to support vibrant aquatic ecosystems.

Protecting Clean Water

effluent draining from water pipe

Dirty water is the world's biggest health risk, and continues to threaten both quality of life and public health in the United States. When water from rain and melting snow runs off roofs and roads into our rivers, it picks up toxic chemicals, dirt, trash and disease-carrying organisms along the way. Many of our water resources also lack basic protections, making them vulnerable to pollution from factory farms, industrial plants, and activities like fracking. This can lead to drinking water contamination, habitat degradation and beach closures. NRDC is working to protect our water from pollution by:

  • Drawing on existing protections in the Clean Water Act, and working to ensure that the law's pollution control programs apply to all important waterways, including headwater streams and wetlands, which provide drinking water for 117 million Americans;
  • Improving protections to reduce pollutants like bacteria and viruses, which threaten Americans' health and well being; and
  • Establishing new pollution limits for top problem areas, such as sources of runoff and sewage overflows.

Promoting Water Efficiency

water efficiency

Despite the many existing pressures on our water resources, there are cost-effective solutions that will allow us to transform our relationship with water. To address increasing water scarcity in many places in the nation, NRDC is working to promote investments and policies that increase water use efficiency and decrease water waste, such as:

  • Adopting sensible standards for efficient appliances, buildings, and irrigation;
  • Supporting cost-effective investments by utilities to help customers save water; and
  • Improving pricing structures to save both water and money.

Water and Climate Change

drought landscape

From more severe and frequent droughts to unprecedented flooding, many of the most profound and immediate impacts of climate change will relate to water. More than one-third of all counties in the lower 48 states will face higher risks of water shortages by mid-century as a result of global warming. Other impacts will include sea level rise, saltwater intrusion, harm to fisheries and more frequent and intense storm events. To help communities prepare, NRDC is creating tools that help the public and government officials to better understand and anticipate the water-related impacts of climate change at a state, county, and city level. We also promote ways to reduce wasted energy resulting from inefficient water collection, treatment and distribution.

Preserving Water Ecosystems

river

Fish, birds and wildlife depend on clean water, just as people do. NRDC works to protect and restore important waterways to ensure that there is enough water flowing to keep these ecosystems intact and functioning. In the San Francisco Bay-Delta -- the largest estuary on the west coast -- we are stopping unsustainable water withdrawals that threaten endangered fish species and their habitat through a range of litigation tools. We are also continuing to restore water flows to California's second largest river, the San Joaquin River. Through implementation of the historic San Joaquin River Restoration Settlement, an agreement won after 18 years of litigation brought by a coalition of conservation and fishing groups, and led by NRDC, the settlement will restore water flows and reintroduce salmon to the San Joaquin.
