How It Works
A water treatment system filters and conditions all sorts of contaminants that could be present in your drinking, cooking, and bathing water. The state-of-the-art technology utilizes filtration and conditioning methods that can take municipal water and make it almost completely pure and last for many years to come with little wear and tear.
Here are some of the benefits you can expect to receive from filtering and conditioning your water with a whole-house water treatment system:
- No more bottled water. Tired of lifting heavy cases of water bottles from the supermarket? Make the switch to purified alkaline water on tap and you’ll not only eliminate plastic bottles, but you’ll spend less on water every day, adding up to saving hundreds or even thousands every year.
- Better health. Bathing in contaminants like chlorine, disinfectant by by-products and other containments can contribute to dry skin, brittle hair, and other issues. Filtering your water can improve your overall skin and hair health significantly, starting almost immediately!
- Less wear & tear on appliances. Your water using appliances also feel the effects of these contaminants in the scale and residual mineral buildup that accumulates over time. Conditioning your water can increase your water heater’s lifespan up to 50%.
- Save money. In total, the cost of bottled water can exceed over $1,000 per year if you drink approximately a liter per day. Switching to filtered water can cut this expense to mere pennies, plus help you save on fixing and replacing plumbing fixtures appliances, replacing clothes that wear out, and more!

Filtering Chlorine and Disinfectant by-products
Virginia Tech research has found a direct link between chlorine and copper plumbing corrosion. Chloramines, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, has also been found to increase corrosion, as seen by those blue and green spots. Not only does this affect our plumbing throughout our whole home, but studies at the University of Pittsburgh found absorption through the skin (while showering) was responsible for 64 percent of waterborne contaminants that enter the human body.
Using a whole-home treatment system can dramatically reduce this problem, helping you avoid scale and corrosion, keeping your appliances and plumbing working properly for longer and helping you save money on costly repairs and bottles of water.
