Natural Water for Your Home
By Henry Pine
Water is the universal solvent. This means water has the tendency to dissolve everything it touches. Chemicals and minerals become part of the water. Calcium, magnesium, iron, sulfur, PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), bacteria, fertilizer, pharmaceuticals, and pesticides are all in the water’s mix. Unfortunately, Houston, along with most cities & towns in the US, injects chlorine or chloramines (chlorine and ammonia) into their citizens' drinking water. This has shown to be the cheapest and easiest way to kill the bacteria in our drinking water. But are you comfortable drinking, showering or bathing in water that smells like chlorine and contains ammonia?
One possible solution is to use a water softener. Water Softeners do not truly filter or sanitize your water. Most water softeners are not filters at all; they merely use ion exchange to take calcium, magnesium and other minerals out of the water, and replace them with salt. Chlorine, Chloramines, Pharmaceuticals and VOCs are left in your water. They do not make the water cleaner, more sanitized or safer. They just make the water more compatible with soap products, reduce spots and make the water feel slick. Some systems have filtering media, but not nearly enough to keep up with the environment.
The other solution might be to use an activated charcoal filter on the faucet or in a pitcher. This works[9DR1] , but only on the one faucet and only until the filter becomes clogged. You would be bathing, washing clothes and dishes in unfiltered water. You would be exposing your water heater and household appliances to the dissolved minerals which shorten their working lifetime. Unless you are willing to replace the filter often it isn’t an effective solution even for drinking water.
Up until now the whole-house water purification systems have been ineffective, expensive, high maintenance. Let me describe a new type of whole-house system that not only does the job but is affordable and reliable.
First the water passes through a Magnetic Field Oxidation chamber. The water ions are magnetically charged as they pass through and they convert the calcite (sticky scaly) form of calcium into Aragonite, the less scaly form of calcium. This preps the water for the complete treatment process.
Next[9DR2] , all of the water entering your home is channeled it through a Hyper-Oxidation chamber. This electronically controlled chamber is the heart and soul of the system. When the water is running, the control box energizes a set of specially formulated titanium and copper electrodes in the chamber. Our titanium electrodes oxidize the organic compounds in the water killing most bacteria and burning up organic impurities. This process helps purify the water. The electrodes add a small amount of copper ions to the water. Copper is lethal to bacteria, viruses, algae’s and parasites, but are not harmful to humans like chlorine and chloramines are. This process supplies continuous protection from bacteria and disease-causing pathogens, while nourishing your body with small amounts of safe copper minerals, which our bodies use.
After the chamber does its work, the water is passed through a large, specially formulated multi-media filter tank. This combination of Catalytic Activated Carbon, Oxidation Reduction Media, Sequestering Beads, Quad-Polarizer and Anti-scale Resin, make up a proprietary filter bed. The filter media bed is supported by high[9DR3] grade silica under-bedding for enhanced backwashing efficiency. This media tank removes a wide range of impurities from your water, yet leaves in all the healthy minerals. The filter bed removes 99.9% of all VOC, (volatile organic compounds). It removes Chlorine, Chloramines, Fluoride, Lead, Mercury, Arsenic, Beryllium, Chromium, and over 50 others.
This is the only system I am aware of that offers all three of the criteria needed for a complete water treatment system: removal of harmful chemicals dissolved in the water, killing of bacteria in the water and leaves in beneficial minerals. If you would like more information about this system to determine whether it is right for you[9DR4] , contact Accent Natural Water at the address below[9DR5] .
