Central Gulf Coast Florida has been heavily impacted by the discharge of the chemical GenX (a man-made compound). While normal chlorine filters will not reduce this contaminant, a Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System from EcoWater of Central Florida can reduce this contaminant significantly – in many cases to a level that is safe to drink.
According to the New York Times: “The Environmental Protection Agency says streams tapped by water utilities serving a third of the population are not yet covered by clean-water laws that limit levels of toxic pollutants.”
Furthermore, lead is rarely treated by municipalities and is picked up in water during its journey to your home’s tap. Lead can easily be reduced by a Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System from EcoWater of Central Florida.
A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that Central Gulf Coast Florida drinking water contains hexavalent chromium, a toxic metal that has been linked to cancer. While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not require testing for the metal, the survey found that levels in the local area water in certain areas were pushing the levels proposed as a safety limit by authorities. This contaminant has been proven to cause cancer. A reverse osmosis drinking water system can help bring contaminants like Chromium 6 to a safe level.
What it is – hard water contains calcium and magnesium minerals which bond with everything they touch, leaving “limescale” in their wake.
Treatment – Our guaranteed water softener provides the best option for soft water on the market. It improves the water throughout your entire home while protecting your appliances and fixtures.
What it is – Iron can come in a couple different forms including dissolved and non-dissolved. Both of which can leave red/orange stains on your sinks, tubs, and toilets and can be extremely hard to remove. Iron can also cause bacteria to grow and let off an unpleasant smell.
Treatment – The EcoWater ECR 3502 is rated to remove up to 15 ppm of clear water iron. In most cases, our equipment can remove triple the iron compared to competitive brands. Should your water run red out of the faucet, an ETF AII9 Air Injection filter ahead of your water softener will usually fix the problem. In severe cases, a separate iron filter may be needed.
What it is – Chlorine is a chemical used by municipal & local water treatment plants to reduce harmful bacteria in the water supply. While this sounds good, chlorine and chloramines can cause a bacteria of their own to grow called trihalomethanes (TTHM) which is quite unsafe to drink or bathe in.
Treatment – The most efficient Chlorine reduction filter is Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) or Catalytic Carbon. Due to the high level of chlorine added to water by cities, you will really appreciate your water with chlorine reduction. See our Whole House Filtration page for more information.
Dirt & Sediment
What it is – dirt & sediment is just as it sounds. This is typically most common in well water or surface water that hasn’t gone through a treatment facility.
Treatment – Dirt and sediment are found in almost all water supplies and will decrease the efficiency and lifespan of your appliances. For example, sediment in a water heater can prevent the heat from transferring to the water in the tank once sediment has built up in the bottom. Our whole house filtration system can help with this problem.
What they are – common contaminants in our area can include nitrates, lead, arsenic, pharmaceuticals, and more. These are not included in the free water test. However, we do offer full laboratory testing at an affordable price.
Treatment – Protecting the water in your home is important and ensuring the purity of the water you are putting in your body is even more crucial. Our Reverse Osmosis drinking water system will give you peace of mind that your drinking water is healthy, and you are going to fall in love with this drinking water system that can provide up to 50 gallons per day of delicious water.
