ALL WATER IS NOT
Heavy mineral content lurking in your water can wreak havoc on the appliances and plumbing in your home. Not only does hard water cause scale to build up inside pipes, restricting water flow, but minerals can also cause scale to mount inside appliances like water heaters and dishwashers, reducing efficiency and eventually cutting their lifespan short. Some effects are even more obvious as you watch unsightly scale dot dishes, accumulate on shower doors and collect on faucets and fixtures around your home. Traditional water softeners eliminate the main hard water culprit, calcium and magnesium, yet leave that unwanted slippery feeling behind. That’s because most softeners exchange calcium for sodium and create sodium bicarbonate, otherwise known as baking soda. Your water might be softer, but it’s not necessarily easier to live with. WaterTech offers proprietary solutions that strike the right balance of softening and conditioning, including the Reionator. It’s time to virtually eliminate all the challenges of living with hard water.

PFAS (poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances) have been widely used to make every-day household products such as clothing, carpet, cleaning products, leather, Teflon®, paints and more. While most PFAS - Forever Chemicals are no longer manufactured in the US, they are still manufactured internationally and can be imported into the US as chemical compounds, or inside consumer goods. We still have these chemicals entering our environment, and eventually our water. Because of their strong molecular structure these compounds take much longer to break down naturally than other organic chemicals, thus remaining in the environment and in the human body for a very long time. These chemicals are carcinogenic and have been associated with a variety of adverse health effects including cancer, immunity deficiencies, and developmental effects in unborn children. PFAS is also referred to as PFOS & PFOA, which are types of PFAS in the water.
They are, but many of us have a love/hate relationship with chlorine/chloramines. We’re thankful for their disinfecting capability that protects our lives and prevents biologic water contamination, yet their taste, smell and drying effects completely turn us off. What you might not know is that chlorine/chloramines are vital during the water treatment process at the municipal and distribution level, but their job is done by the time the water reaches your home. That means you don’t have to live with the negative effects of chlorine/chloramines anymore. WaterTech’s most advanced conditioning system, the Reionator, and other filtration systems can reduce the chlorine/chloramines in your water. The result is cleaner, better tasting water that you can trust. For more information, take a look at one of our Products:
Regulation and oversight can’t always stop bacteria, viruses and protozoa from causing waterborne illnesses. Granted, we live in a country where water treatment is highly regulated, but system failures do occur and some treatment plants aren’t always operating up to government standards. To ensure that the drinking water you and your family use is safeguarded against bacteria and viruses, you can install an in-home filtration system that acts as another level of insurance against biologic contamination. If you’re concerned about the safety of your water, WaterTech has solutions that help you make smart decisions about treating your water that will benefit you and your family best.
Nitrates are colorless, odorless minerals that occur naturally throughout the environment or as a result of human activities. Nitrate is a compound that is formed naturally when nitrogen combines with oxygen or ozone. Nitrogen is essential for all living things, but high levels in drinking water can be harmful to health, especially for infants.
