Water is the essence of life itself. Nothing is more important to our health than crystal clear drinking water, clean air, and nourishing food.

Unfortunately, most sources of drinking water, including municipal water systems, wells, lakes, rivers, and even glaciers, contain some level of contamination. Contaminants range from naturally-occurring minerals to man-made chemicals and by-products, to biological agents such as bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and cysts. Some cause esthetic problems such as unpleasant or undesirable color, taste, mineral build-up or stains. Others are harmful to our health.

Before we can begin to purify our water, we must have an understanding of the contaminants that our treatment system will target.

We have assembled a wide range of information on common water contaminants, water filter selection and technologies, well water purification, dehydration, and a list credible research links to assist you in your evaluation of water purification technologies and products. Should you require any other information or have questions specific to your situation, please do not hesitate to contact one of our certified water technicians or product specialists toll free at 1-866-376-2690.
