Free your family from pollutant chemicals with a whole-house water filter.
With over 2100 known carcinogens in our water supply, and countless other contaminants it’s no wonder the water filter industry is growing at over 3 billion dollars in sales a year worldwide. If you do not have a water filter of some kind, you may want to consider buying one soon.
While point-of-use filtration (ie.,at the tap) can work in certain situations, for the majority of homes they are usually not enough to meet treatment needs. A whole house water treatment system is usually the best place to start. The typical whole-house treatment system will filter hardness, chlorine, volatile organic compounds, trihalomethanes and a host of other contaminants that can foul up your appliances or even worse, cause cancer and other diseases. Such a system will typically meet the treatment where there are private wells, but those who rely on municipal water systems should also consider a whole house water system plus a chlorine/chloramine reduction filter for the purpose of removing the chlorine and chloramines along with the hardness contaminants.
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a filtration method that removes many types of large molecules and ions from solutions. It works by applying positive pressure to a solution on one side of a selective membrane. The result is that undesired molecules/ions are kept on the pressurized side while the pure solvent is allowed to pass through.
RO is used commonly for a number of water treatment applications. It is very effective in reducing many contaminants ranging from toxic metals like lead to harmful protozoa like Cryptosporidium that causes diarrhea.
Everclean provides a state-of-the-art, four-stage reverse osmosis unit for under-sink installation that is second to none. This one-piece manifold system performs well beyond standard water filtration units provided in pitcher filters and “end-of-the-tap” filter systems that are typically available.
The stages of this NSF tested and certified reverse osmosis system include:
- a 5-micron sediment filter to reduce sediment and rust;
- a 5-micron carbon block filter to reduce chlorine taste and odor;
- a high production RO membrane that reduces water impurities down to 1 ten-thousandth of a micron
- a carbon block filter that will further enhance the water’s taste.
