Is water organic?

Water is not considered to be an organic compound. An organic compound is a type of chemical compound that contains carbon atoms bonded to hydrogen atoms, and may also contain other elements such as oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur. Organic compounds are often found in living things, and many of them are essential for life. Water, on the other hand, is a simple inorganic compound made up of hydrogen and oxygen atoms. It does not contain carbon and is not essential for the growth and development of living organisms in the same way that organic compounds are. However, water is a vital component of all living organisms and is necessary for their survival.

Can tap water be organic?

No, tap water cannot be considered organic. The term "organic" is typically used to describe food and other products that are produced using methods that do not involve the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, or irradiation. In the case of tap water, it is not produced for consumption and therefore is not subject to the same regulations as food products. Tap water is regulated by government agencies to ensure that it meets certain standards for safety and quality, but these standards do not include requirements related to the use of organic methods in its production. It’s important to note that only a handful of contaminants are required to be included in annual Consumer Confidence Reports or Water Quality Reports issued by local water treatment facilities. There are literally thousands of potentially harmful unregulated contaminants that aren’t accounted for by the EPA and not tested for by local water treatment facilities.

Does organic matter?

Organic is a term used to describe products that are grown or produced without the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), or other artificial or chemically based inputs. The term "organic" is regulated by various organizations, such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in the United States, which has established a set of standards for the production and labeling of organic products. Whether or not organic products matter depends on an individual's personal values and priorities. 

Some people may prioritize buying organic products because they believe that organic farming practices are better for the environment, as they often involve techniques such as crop rotation and the use of natural fertilizers that can help to improve soil health and reduce the use of synthetic chemicals. Others may choose to buy organic products because they believe that they are healthier or safer for human consumption, as they are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and other potentially harmful chemicals. Ultimately, the decision to buy organic products is a personal one, and it is up to each individual to determine whether the benefits of buying organic products outweigh the potential costs or trade-offs.

organic water filter

It is generally recommended to filter tap water in order to remove impurities and contaminants that may be present. While tap water in many areas is treated to meet certain standards for safety and quality, it can still contain a range of contaminants that may affect its taste, odor, and appearance. These contaminants can come from a variety of sources, including natural minerals, algae, bacteria, and man-made chemicals. Filtering tap water can help to remove these contaminants and improve the overall quality of the water.

There are a wide range of water filtration options available, including water pitcher filters, faucet-mounted filters, and under-sink filters. Some people also use whole house water filtration systems or reverse osmosis systems to filter their tap water. It is important to choose a water filtration method that is suitable for your needs and budget, and to regularly maintain and replace the filters as needed to ensure that the water being filtered is clean and safe to drink.

Two Types of Water Filters: Granular carbon water filters and carbon block water filters are two of the most common types of water filters that use activated carbon to remove impurities from water. Activated carbon is a form of carbon that has been treated with oxygen to create a porous structure that is highly effective at trapping impurities. Granular carbon water filters are made from small, granular particles of activated carbon, which are packed into a container or cartridge. These types of filters are inexpensive to manufacturer and when water is passed through the filter, the impurities in the water are trapped by the activated carbon as it flows through the filter. Granular carbon filters are generally effective at removing a wide range of impurities, including chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and some heavy metals. They are often used in whole house water filtration systems or in point-of-use filters, such as under sink filters or countertop filters. 

Carbon block water filters, on the other hand, are made from a solid block of activated carbon, which is compressed and shaped into a cylinder or other shape. Water is passed through the filter, and the impurities are trapped in the pores of the activated carbon as it flows through the filter. Carbon block filters are generally more effective at removing impurities than granular carbon filters, as they have a larger surface area and a more consistent pore size. At Epic, we use carbon block and carbon fiber block filters on all of our products. We do not use granular activated carbon by itself in any of our products. 

They are often used in higher-end water filtration systems or in point-of-use filters where a high level of water purification is desired. In general, carbon block filters are more effective at removing impurities than granular carbon filters, but they may also be more expensive. The best type of filter for a particular application will depend on the specific impurities that need to be removed and the desired level of water purification.
