The Pono Revival treatment process begins by conditioning the water via a high-capacity KDF + Steam Activated Carbon media. KDF has been the industry standard for removing chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, water soluble heavy metals, and microorganisms from water.
In this stage, harmful contaminants are changed into harmless components. Free chlorine, for instance, is changed into benign, water-soluble chloride, which is then carried harmlessly into the next stage. Similarly, some heavy metals such as copper, lead, mercury and others, react and flow onto the medium’s surface, thus being effectively removed from the water supply. Next, the water goes through steam activated carbon produced from coconut shells.
This media has been the industry standard for treating chlorine, chloramine, herbicides, industrial solvents, heavy metals, hydrogen sulfide, iron, pesticides, SOCs (Synthetic Organic Compounds), THMs (chlorine byproduct), VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds, such as BCEE, hydrocarbons, MTBE, etc.), and many others.
The 1 Micron filter removes silts, fine dust, cement dust, protozoan cysts, and many others in preparation for the next stage.
