Public water supply systems are faced with the growing problem of dealing with a variety of contaminants, many of which were unknown when their treatment plants were originally built. The amount of water being used in many cities is beginning to strain the capacity of older systems. Public water systems continue to produce water that meets all minimum health requirements, however, they are often forced to produce water that does not look, taste or smell very good.
Only 1% of all water used is for human consumption, therefore it should be of the highest quality! The most effective method of purifying drinking water is through “Reverse Osmosis” in conjunction with sediment filtration. Reverse Osmosis “squeezes” water through a membrane to remove dissolved solids at a ratio of 3:1. That means it takes three gallons of city water to make one gallon of 98% purified water. Sediment and carbon filters remove chlorine, sodium, lead and other organic chemicals that may have found their way into your home from industrial waste, agricultural pesticides, landfills and dumps.
