Activated carbon is an effective adsorbent because it is a highly porous material and provides a large surface area to which contaminants may adsorb. The Oxbow Carbon is known for its purity and quality when addressing chlorine, bad tastes and odor in municipal water.
Catalytic carbon is a necessity in addressing chloramines which is an unwanted by-product of the municipal disinfection process of water. Catalytic carbon supports the activated carbon by acting as a catalyst to address the chloramines and should always be considered a must in areas where chlorine and ammonia disinfection are used.
The patented Hydro Magnetic Conditioning Module is a tried and trusted alternative to salt systems that utilizes the power of magnets to keep the minerals from adhering to surfaces thus reducing hard water issues.
Activated carbon is made from organic matter with a high level of natural carbon, such as peat, wood, or coal. The matter is slowly heated in a very low-oxygen environment to draw out water and impurities without allowing it to burn, creating a material known as char. The char is then activated through a series of chemical and physical processes to vastly increase its surface area and create a network of submicroscopic pores. Through a process known as adsorption, the carbon attracts and traps a wide variety of compounds across its vast surface area. Activated carbon is capable of binding compounds in liquid, solid, and gas phases.
In water, activated carbon is most frequently used to remove organic compounds. These include a variety of bacteria and algae, as well as tannins and phenols. Tannins are produced when organic matter breaks down, and give water an unpleasant dark color. Phenols are naturally occurring compounds that may have some minor health benefits, but tend to create an odd smell. Activated carbon also breaks down chlorine into chloride, removing the strong odor and taste from chlorine-treated drinking water.
Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, are by-products of common household products such as paints, solvents, and cleansers, as well as industrial and commercial processing. They enter the groundwater through runoff, spills, and improper containment procedures. At times, these VOCs can enter the drinking water supply. At other times, they evaporate into the air, causing airborne exposure that can result in severe respiratory distress in sensitive individuals.
Hard water can wreak havoc on pipes and appliances shortening the lifespan and making cleaning a hassle. Traditionally, salt or potassium water softeners have been the only technology used to address hard water problems. A more modern, alternate technology called "conditioning" now allows consumers to reap some of the benefits of softened water without the maintenance of a traditional water softener. This technology coupled with filtration media (in one tank) offers you the best of both worlds.
Hydro Magnetic conditioning is a method of treating hard water (without salt) in both residential and commercial applications. The device does not filter out elements but magnetically ionizes the water helping to reduce hard water issues. Additionally, for those who already have calcium crystallization inside their pipes this devise will tend to break away the buildup.

I broke a pipe and needed a plumber to come out ASAP. It was late Saturday night so I knew it would be hard to find a plumber to come help. I called 3 plumbers and got their voicemail. Contacted another plumber and he wanted to charge $90 just to come out for and estimate. I finally contacted Best Choice and Joe offered to send out a technician free of charge. Brandon arrived around 30 mins later! We needed to get a special valve that had to be picked up at the specialty plumbing store and they were closed. They offered to come out first thing Sunday morning to fix the issue and gave us a very reasonable price. As promised, Joe and Brandon showed up on SUNDAY morning at 8am to fix our issue. While fixing the shower valve he noticed my toilet was running water and gave me the part to fix it for free! That is great customer service! FYI- They also give you a 1 year warranty on the service.
I had a leak in my bathroom and called Best Choice the night before and they came out first thing in the morning. He quoted me a price and he went over and beyond what I expected. Very nice guy. I will recommend him to friends and family and will also use him again in the future!
Best Choice came to my house and fixed my problem in about 30 minutes, he was friendly and got the job done and unbeatable price, I highly recommend them to everybody thanks Best Choice Plumbing.
