WATER TREATMENTS

There are many ways to treat and clean up water, the best way relates back to the origins of water
and the way Nature makes water.

Municipalities work hard to deal with all the contaminants in our public water supply. However, with street run-off, industrial and agricultural run-off to name just a few, it is a constant struggle for Municipalities to update equipment in hopes to handle all these pollutants. Then you still have the pipes to be concern with if they are old in your house or apartment.

Along comes a phenomenon - Bottle water!
Amazing what people will pay for clean water, but is the water really clean?

Watchdog in Action:
* In 1999, one out of three brands had contaminants above state and / or industry standards.
* In 2001, a recall of one brand was issued due to tests showing yeast and mold in the water.
* In 2001, bottled water sales increased to show almost 50% of Americans were drinking bottled water every day.
* In 2003, the United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organization ranked water in the United States 12th on the list for worldwide water quality.
* In 2007, companies bottling water start to clarify where their water comes from due to the growing complaints that labels were not clear on the subject. If the water was from a public water source, the label needed to say just that. No longer would "PWS" be sufficient on the labels. Public Water Source has to be spelled out.

End Results:

- Municipalities can do just so much, but the delivery system through old pipes only adds to the concern
- Bottle Water is an unknown. Depending on how long the water was sitting on the shelf, plastic can leach contaminates into the water over time.
- Carbon Filter Systems
- Reverse Osmosis
- Distillation: The way Mother Nature makes it and yes, we can drink distilled water...
