Best Water Filter to Remove Copper

Product Description

Copper occurs naturally in rocks, sediments, soil, and water sources such as lakes, rivers, and groundwater. These sources that contain high concentrations of copper in water are mainly due to the erosion of copper pipes. Erosion of copper pipes is usually linked with great amounts of residual chlorine, extended presence of water in pipes, hot water and soft or acidic water. Copper further breaks down as water remains in copper pipes, so water that continues to sit in these pipes for long stretches of time consist of a high concentration of copper. In low amounts, copper can provide beneficial nutrients to human health since it helps with the prevention of certain diseases or syndromes. However, when copper is ingested in higher concentrations within drinking water can lead to medical problems which include stomach aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and various kidney and liver problems. The toxic effects of copper is specifically dangerous to toddlers. The detection of copper in water requires the use of chemical testing instruments, which we offer here at Pure Aqua.               

Best Water Filter to Remove Copper from Drinking Water

Copper is able to be eliminated from drinking water through various water treatment solutions such as ion exchange systems, distillation, and reverse osmosis. Ion exchange filters function by eradicating copper through mixing them onto resins or mineral substances. This process occurs in filter cartridges, which can be part of point-of-entry systems that the resulting water that enter the house. These filters must be alternated in a periodic manner to preserve their efficiency over time.

Reverse osmosis and nanofiltration systems operate by sending water through semi-permeable membranes that permit water to pass, but prevents the passage of ions such as copper. In commercial and industrial applications, reverse osmosis systems are generally medium sized, cost-effective, and capable of producing 100 or more gallons per day. The result of the reverse osmosis or NF process is ultra-pure water without unwanted contaminants that include bacteria, viruses, microbiological organisms and minerals such as copper.

Distillation are effective in eliminating dissolved solids from water through the usage of distillation systems. Although distillation systems have proven to be highly effective at targeting and removing high concentration of copper, these systems come with a higher cost of use than reverse osmosis systems due to the requirement of electricity to boil the water.

Standard Features:

  • The Industrial Steel Tank Automatic Water Softeners are designed as fully automatic units either with timer or meter control. The timer control initiates softener regeneration at any predetermined time - on any or every day. The metered models start regeneration based on the total gallons used.

  • The steel mineral tank is engineered for a 100 psi working pressure and is tested to 150 psi. It is equipped with a manhole in the upper dome.

  • The interior of the tank is coated with epoxy for protection against rust and corrosion. The exterior has a rust inhibiting primer coat.

  • A premium grade sulfanated nonphenolic polystyrene type resin is contained in the mineral tank. The resin will deliver 30,000 grains per cubic foot when brined at a rate of 15 lbs. per cubic foot.

  • The brine tank is a combination of high density polystyrene brine measuring tank and a brine valve, including an air eliminator valve and a safety brine refill shut off to prevent tank overflow.

  • The automatic regeneration controller features a choice of 7 or 12 day calendar wheels. Time of regeneration and length of time for each regeneration cycle are fully adjustable.

  • The under drain utilizes either a hub & lateral or a header & lateral system to evenly distribute water and prevent resin loss, and to insure minimal pressure drop at peak flow rates.


The ideal applications for a Water Softener include:

  • Apartments/Condominiums

  • Groundwater remediation

  • Hospitals

  • Laundries

  • Boiler Feedwater

  • Contact process water

  • Car Washes

  • RO Pre-treatment

  • Cooling Tower
