This publication is a reference about common home water treatment devices. Homeowners on private water supplies can reference it to find the device or system appropriate for treating contaminants. Others can use it in educational programs. It is also designed as a desk reference for cooperative extension agents, regulatory personnel, and industry professionals. Individuals on public water systems may find the information useful for improving the aesthetic quality of water or for treating contaminants that may leach from household plumbing.
