Brita Water Filter
Brita Filter
"What is special about the BRITA Carbon? It's activated carbon which is made by soaking organic material (usually coconut shells) in special solutions and super heating it without oxygen to produce a greater surface with lots of pores ... example: 1oz. of granular activated carbon equals 186,500 square feet of surface ( approximately 4 acres) ... this is why it is the ideal filtering substance best suited to take up the maximum of organic molecules. Activated carbon is used extensively in the food and medical applications. BRITA uses only the best, highest quality, food grade carbon made from coconut shells and gives it a special treatment to inhibit bacteria growth in the cartridge."
