Best way to get rid of the following?
I've been doing a lot of research on water filters. It seems like it's come down to either: Fluoride Removal>KDF/GAC>0.5 Micron Carbon Block or RO with a 0.5 Micron Carbon Block to reduce VOCs. Based on this report for where I live can someone tell me which method would be better? http://projects.nytimes.com/toxic-wa...5-east-bay-mud
If I can get the simple under the sink filters to deal with this problem as effectively as possible then I'll do that, as RO is more difficult to maintain and wastes water etc, but of course having clean water for health is the primary concern, so I'll do what I have to do to achieve that.
Benefits to installing a water treatment system such as reverse osmosis
Benefits to installing a water treatment system for home applications include removing disagreeable tastes and odors, including objectionable chlorine, many chemicals and gases, and in some cases it can be effective against microorganisms. In particular, reverse osmosis is highly effective in removing up to 99% of contaminants in water. It removes several impurities from water such as total dissolved solids, turbidity, asbestos, lead and other toxic heavy metals, radium, and many dissolved organics. The process will also remove chlorinated pesticides and most heavier-weight VOCs.
