It takes more than 17 million barrels of oil annually to make all the plastic bottles that meet America’s demand for bottled water. That’s enough oil to fuel 1.3 million cars for a year, not including the oil used for transportation of those water bottles. Last year, the average American used 167 disposable water bottles. Altogether, Americans’ used over 50 billion plastic water bottles last year alone. The recommended eight glasses of water a day, at U.S. tap rates equals about $.49 a day. That same amount of bottled water is about $1,400 a year, but keep in mind that people prefer bottled water because it taste great! So, how does one cut out all the plastic bottles from their life but still get great tasting water straight from their tap? By purchasing a high performance drinking water system, that goes under your your kitchen sink. This system uses the same water purification process as Dasani and Nestle and it is called reverse osmosis. This process is used in water purification, manufacturing plants, and chemical laboratories. One great unit that we recommend is the the PURA QCRO4V. This 4 stage quick change reverse osmosis system can be customized to adapt to changing water conditions. The quick change filters feature the innovative PURA twist and lock design, making filter changes and service fast and easy.
- Choice of a 50 gpd or 75 gpd membrane
- Standard Lead Free Air Gap Faucet
- Color coded tubing for easier installation
- Quick connect fittings and a self piercing feed valve
- Interchangeable filters allows the system to be customized to your local water conditions
- Produces high quality water for better tasting coffee, tea, juices, soups, sauces and pasta and clearer ice cubes
- System includes a sediment pre-filter, carbon block pre-filter, RO membrane and carbon block postfilter
The first stage of filtration is the sediment filter, which reduces suspended particles such as dirt, dust, and rust. The second stage of filtration is the carbon filter. This filter reduces volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), chlorine, and other compounds that might impact the taste or odor of the tap water. Chlorine should be removed from the water before the water enters the membrane. This will help preserve the life of the membrane. The center and third stage of a reverse osmosis system is the semi-permeable (RO) membrane. It is responsible for rejecting up to 98% of the total dissolved solids in the water. So you can save the planet, save money and drink healthier water! For more information about this system call 800-942-7873 or click the link below to ask us a question.
Recently, a client came to us in regards to their company’s well water. They wanted to make sure the water was safe from pathogens and other microorganisms and free from odor. They were looking for an alternative other than using chlorine or chloramine.
After reviewing a water sample, the test results showed high levels of iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide, or what we like to call — THE TERRIBLE TRIO!!
Iron, as one of the most abundant elements in the Earth’s crust, is commonly found in well water supplies. While iron generally poses no health threat to humans and animals, it is a stain-causing and sediment-forming nuisance that feeds numerous strains of bacteria. Manganese is far less abundant than iron, but still quite common and easy to recognize from the telltale black staining. Consuming elevated levels of manganese has been linked to neurological disorders. Hydrogen sulfide’s infamous rotten egg smell distinguishes it from iron, manganese and most other contaminants that are found in well water. In addition to its unpleasant odor, hydrogen sulfide concentrations as low as 1.0 ppm are quite corrosive; even very low levels can tarnish silverware and stain porcelain fixtures. So, how can you fight the terrible trio? We suggest two solutions, ultraviolet light treatment system with pre-filtration and ozone disinfection systems. The difference between the two systems essentially is: UV kills germs with light energy, whereas ozone kills germs and odors as an oxidizer. The systems can be used alone or together. Ozone and UV technologies are comparatively priced; however, ozone systems have a slightly larger footprint than UV. Operational costs of each system vary with the local price of electricity. The minimal maintenance and reduced chemical requirements of an ozone system, however, can create cost savings that can result in a system payback of three to six years. UV lamps must be replaced every 12 months to two years and must be figured into the maintenance costs for these systems.

Do you ever get confused about all the different types of water filtration systems and which one you should use? Well don’t worry. We can help eliminate some of that confusion. Here are some things you should know to help you understand more about water filtration. There are essentially only two principle locations for installing water treatment systems. Which of the two systems you need depends upon what you hope to accomplish. One is Point-of-Entry water treatment (POE), the other is Point-of-Use water treatment (POU). What’s the difference? Picture the water supply where your local municipality or other supplier delivers water to your house, office building, factory, plant or other facility. At the point where the supply enters the building, it’s connected to a water meter. Your side of the meter is your responsibility and expense. You might be stuck with the water as delivered, but you don’t have to like it or settle for its quality (or lack of quality). There are a lot of POE and POU systems that can help you improve the quality of water before you drink it, cook with it or bathe with it. A Point-of-Entry water treatment system is installed on your side of the meter with the express purpose of treating all of the incoming water before it goes into the individual supply lines that feed your laundry, bathrooms (including toilets), dedicated outside faucets and others as well as your kitchen. POE systems often include softeners, large bed carbon filters, and some systems which are specifically designed to remove (or trap) sediment, foul tastes and odors. POE systems are sometimes considered pre-filters. A Point-of-Use water treatment system is installed in an individual source line ahead of any or all of the building’s taps, faucets or other dedicated outlets used to dispense water for drinking, cooking or bathing. Good POU systems are often expected to capture whatever escapes the POE system.
So once you figure out if you want a POU system or a POE system, the next step is getting a water test done. We can help you with this! After we test your water and once we receive the test results back we then recommend a course of action and what water filtration would best benefit you. If you are interested in getting your water tested or have more questions about what filtration systems will work best for you, please contact us at 800-942-7873 or ask us a question below!
