A Guide To Home Water Treatment

Extension Water Quality Bulletin 21

Provides a guide for consumers who want to know about home water treatment systems.

A variety of water treatment processes are available to the homeowner. The systems differ in the types of chemicals removed, location within the home, and operating and maintenance requirements. Two broad categories of home water treatment units are point-of-use (POU) and point-of-entry (POE) systems.

Several processes are available for home water purification. These include activated carbon, ion exchange, reverse osmosis, distillation, chemical oxidation and ultraviolet radiation treatment.
