I notice I forgot the time issue in my previous response. If you do retain the carbon, it does have a limited life after which is does nothing. This isn't particularly important if you have no real reason for using carbon (like removing medication or similar). And I've no idea how long carbon works before it gives out; the more stuff it removes from the water the quicker it will run out. I think 1077 made some comments on carbon in another thread the other day...mentioned absorption and adsorption...perhaps he (or whomever it was if I'm not remembering exactly) will chime in here.
