In response, manufacturers have developed a wide range of products that are capable of addressing just about any water quality problem.

  • Microfiltration systems – A microfiltration system has a pore size of about 0.1 micron.
  • Ultrafiltration systems – An ultrafiltration system has a pore size of about 0.01 micron.

According to the CDC, technologies like these can be used either alone or in conjunction with one another, depending on your local water quality conditions and household needs.
