What, if any, chemicals does a charcoal filter remove from water? Answered
I'm working on designing a water filter for third world countries, and I was wondering if a charcoal filter would remove chemicals in a water source. If so, what chemicals would they be? I know that charcoal filters kill many bacteria, etc., but that would be of little use if the bacteria were gone but toxic chemicals remained in the water. Recommendations are appreciated. Thanks!
