What’s important to you when it comes to water? Most homeowners want to get rid of the water scale in their baths and kitchen. They want to make sure their water heater and pipes don’t wear out too soon. There may be rust or stains appearing in your toilet and sink. Or maybe your water has a bad smell or taste.
For many women they notice their hair has lost its softness and feels more like straw. And they see their family developing problems with their skin like dryness, rashes or even inflamed eczema.
However, many people are now learning that water can be polluted from local farms, lawn care chemicals, industrial runoff or spills. Radiology contaminates like radon gas have also been known to appear in some water supplies.
If you are concerned about any of these potential water problems, a water purification system is a must have.
There are several types of water solutions, and they are each designed to solve a specific problem. However, when used incorrectly they may not do the job the other water companies says it will. Or could even be dangerous.

Oxidation treatments such as chlorine, ozone, and peroxide kill pathogens but when mixed with dirty raw water they can create dangerous chemicals that need to be filtered out afterward to protect your family.
