Organic materials can cause unwanted tastes, colors or odors in potable water supplies, and can stain clothes washed in water containing these compounds. Chemically these substances are iodized by chlorine or ozone, after which the water is passed through granular activated carbon. However, chlorine or ozone systems may not be the most convenient choice for small home units. Activated carbon, when used alone, has a very limited capacity for organic removal and can actually function as a breeding ground for microbial growth. Reverse osmosis systems can do a good job of organic removal by easily rejecting the high molecular weight acids. For home use, though, special types of Anion Organic Removal Resin, sometimes called organic scavengers, can remove the organics safely and economically.
Special forms of anion resin operating in the chloride cycle can do an effective job of removing organics. The resin can be added as the top layer of an existing softener unit and in most cases can be regenerated with the normal softener brine. The types of resins available include gels, acrylics and macroporous versions of either. A gel resin with a high moisture-to-capacity ratio will give long life and be very resistant to fouling. An acrylic will ion exchange resins give higher initial capacity but may have a tendency to foul over time. Organics vary widely from region to region, and experience with systems operating on the same water supply give the best guidance for resin selection.
