Water Treatment Systems
Water is indispensable for human health and well-being; there can be no life on Earth without water. In fact, the human body is composed of 70% water. However, that same water can do harm to your body if not purified. Unfiltered water contains chlorine, fluoride, dioxins, parasites, etc. that could be hazardous to your health.
Better Tasting Water
Quality water treatment systems are designed to deliver better-tasting, purer drinking water while protecting your family from the various undesirable elements which can be found water. A quality water system offers more than just cleaner drinking water, it also improves your way of life.
If you are like some people out there, you say “I have been drinking unfiltered water for years and I never get sick”. Some diseases take time to present visible signs, but it doesn’t mean they are not in your body. The World Health Organization (WHO) compiles a list of waterborne diseases that kill people all over the world including diarrheal disease, Hepatitis A & E, Cholera, Botulism, Typhoid, Dysentery, Cryptosporidiosis, Polio, etc.
The United States enjoys one of the best supplies of drinking water in the world. Nevertheless, many of us who once gave little or no thought to the water that comes from our taps are now asking the question: “Is my water safe to drink?” While tap water that meets federal and state standards is generally safe to drink, threats to drinking water are increasing. Short-term disease outbreaks and water restrictions during droughts have demonstrated that we can no longer take our drinking water for granted. Not to mention municipal water has added chlorine as a disinfectant to make sure your water does not get contaminated while on the way to your home. Some simply do not like the smell or taste of chlorine, with our systems we can get that out of your water.
Water Treatment Options
There are different options for home treatment systems.
- Point-of-Use (POU) systems treat water at a single tap. POU systems can be installed in various places in the home, including the counter top, the faucet itself, or under the sink.
- Point-of-Entry (POE) systems treat water used throughout the house. POE systems are installed where the water line enters the house.

You may be thinking “We don’t drink water from the laundryroom.” No, but your washer, and household appliances that use water, will benefit from longer-life and your clothes will be cleaner and softer.

Prevents Scale Build-up
Inside your pipes and hot water appliances, the damage is not readily seen but the scale build-up is concentrated in smaller areas – it coats the heating elements and it clings to the inner surfaces of pipes and tanks. In time, the carrying capacity of the pipes gradually reduces so that they become blocked and have to be replaced. Lime scale has been known to increase energy bills by up to 25%.
