People no longer take their water for granted. Water Treatment Systems are commonly installed to make water taste, smell, and feel better.
A Water Treatment System can make water safer too.
Threats to drinking water safety can be naturally occurring like Arsenic. More ominous threats could come from mankind.
Recently a man was found trespassing in a protected Chicago water plant. Could someone tamper with your water supply? Probably not. Most plants are very secure, and well monitored.
Do you want an added layer of security for your water? We’ve outlined 3 different systems that can help protect your water (it will taste better too!).
UV Water Purifier
10% of city water is lost from leaks in city water pipes. Those holes give bacteria a door to enter your water supply.
While major bacteria outbreaks are rare, there is evidence that increasing levels of bacteria and virus are finding their way into city water supplies.
A UV Water Purifier can stop bacteria and virus from entering your home. UV water treatment systems are used by many bottled water suppliers to make sure their water is safe. You can add this same protection to your home for about $10 a month.

Whole House Carbon Water Filter
Most people have used a carbon water filter before. Carbon is used in refrigerator water filters and water pitchers.
Carbon water treatment systems are effective at reducing bad-tasting chemicals like chlorine. They’re also effective at reducing many organic contaminants.
Organic contaminants like atrazine, hydrazine, and vinyl chlorides can be inhaled and absorbed through your skin.
That makes a Whole House Carbon Water Filter a great choice. It will also make your water smell and taste better (many people find it helps dry skin too).

Reverse Osmosis System
A Reverse Osmosis System can remove contaminants almost 1,000x smaller than a human hair!
Most RO systems use a combination of sediment, carbon, and membrane filters. This combination makes them effective at reducing up to 98% of water contaminants.
Reverse Osmosis is used to make bottled water like Aquafina, Dasani, and Nestle Pure Life.
You can install a small system under your sink to get the same great water right from your tap! You also get clearer, better-tasting ice too!
