All life functions depend on water

There is nothing even remotely similar to water. An illustration of this is the number of functions it carries out in the human body - breathing, digestion, growth, movement, elimination of waste products, heat dissipation, secretion, and all glandular activities. These can only be performed in the presence of watery solutions. In fact, water affects every facet of our physiology.

A lot can happen to your water on its way to your tap

Pollution occurs closer to our taps than we might realize. Even if it were possible to have water free of all contaminants when it left the well, reservoir, or local treatment plant, there would still be a question as to whether it was fit to drink by the time it reached your tap.

Since water is such a scavenger (sometimes described as hungry), the quality of our tap water is dependent upon the material used for the pipes and joints. Remember that the underground network of pipes consists of a wide variety of materials, old and new - lead galvanized iron, asbestos re-enforced cement, cadmium, copper, brass, and PVC. The same goes for the plumbing that carries water into your house and up to the kitchen sink. Asbestos contaminated water has been linked to higher incidence of certain types of cancer.

Reverse osmosis is one of the best alternatives

In the opinion of many, the most effective method of water purification is through reverse osmosis or distillation, combined with post filtration through an activated charcoal filter. We use Reverse Osmosis (RO) to treat our water. Our commercial RO machines are state-of-the art and produce water that is over 99% pure! Because our RO machines use a high-pressure pump to force water through the membranes there is far less waste water making them more environmentally friendly and much more efficient than smaller household units.

As the water is forced through the RO membranes, micro-organisms as well as most chemicals and minerals are left behind producing high-purity water.

Reverse osmosis is like surgery

Merely filtering the water is like using a band-aid. Reverse osmosis, on the other hand, is more like doing surgery on the water. It not only improves taste and odor, but it insures the ultimate safety of personal drinking water. Our purified is over 99% free of all contaminants and is also sodium free. Our water goes through the RO process plus 3 more filtering processes and an ultra-violet lamp to ensure it is the safest, freshest, and best tasting water you will ever drink.
