Ceramic: removes bacteria, cryptosporidium (cysts) and sediment

KDF/GAC: reduces chlorine, heavy metals, pesticides, arsenic, dissolved lead and particles, iron, mercury, THMs, VOCs, hydrogen sulfide, barium, cadmium, chromium, MTBE and taste and odor

Activated Alumina: reduces fluoride and arsenic

Reverse Osmosis with carbon: reduces all of the above plus removes calcium, magnesium and potassium

Distillation with carbon: reduces all of the above

Sediment: pleated or wound cartridge for reducing sediment with different micron ratings

Common contaminants our water filters will remove

Arsenic.  Causes bladder, lung & skin cancer; may cause liver and kidney cancer.
Chlorine.  
By-products may contribute to cancer, birth defects and heart disease.
Lead.  
Can cause organ damage and lead to mental retardation.
