What filtration material gives you the cleanest drinking water?

"Do you filter your water prior to drinking it? Well, have you ever wonder how those filters work? Water filters have activated carbon made in two different forms; powder and granulated carbon. The Carbon uses the process called adsorption and acts like a sponge and soaks up contaminants in water and gases. Do you believe these two types of activated carbon make a difference? Well, that's what we're doing today! "

  1. It seems you have an in depth understanding of the physics going on here. I would recommend more data points, and finding a way to make your data more reproducible, such as an established color scale. Well done!
