The objective of this study was to determine the efficiency of several home water filters in removing organic chemicals that have contaminated groundwaters on or near Air Force installations. Several commercially available carbon filters provide high removal efficiencies for chemicals such as trichloroethylene, benzene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, ethyl benzene, and vinyl chloride. The results of independent and manufacturer tests are provided to assist Air Force and DOD engineers in assessing the home water treatment alternative for their unique water supply situations.
