How does chemical filtration work?
      Chemical filtration involves the following two processes:

1) Physically trapping the dirt (absorption);
2) Using chemicals to bind wastes, and then removing them (adsorption).

     Most filters are usually placed in such a way that water can flow through them. As water is pushed over, the filters can both absorb and adsorb the wastes and clean the water.
