Recently in the news we have heard a lot about Chromium in drinking water and we want to be sure and discuss with you how this can be addressed. Hexavalent chromium refers to chemical compounds that contain the element chromium in the +6 oxidation state. Virtually all chromium ore is processed via hexavalent chromium, specifically the salt sodium dichromate. In recognizing the negative health effects of drinking water tainted with trace levels of Chromium VI, (also known ...[READ MORE]
Clean drinking water can be achieved in a residential home in many different ways. The primary source of water for most people over the years has been city water. However, the process of removing the solid components found in the water means the water is drinkable, but may not have a good taste. Residential homes in the country will have a well, but the water needs to be treated to remove dissolved solids. The use of a reverse osmosis system will offer many benefits to a residential ...[READ MORE]
A recent Chinese study concluded that low dose sodium fluoride in drinking water diminishes IQ, especially among children. This is the twenty-fourth such international study with the same conclusion. Sodium fluoride has also been linked to reduced fertility and lower sperm counts. Other health issues arise from the basic function of sodium fluoride's ability to block thyroid production. It was once used to inhibit hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid). So if your thyroid is normal, it will be ...[READ MORE]
Environmental Working Group researcher Nneka Leiba explains the health concerns of fluoridated tap water and outlines what kind of filtering processes work best, particularly if you're bottle-feeding an infant using powdered formula mixed with tap water. Related: What is Reverse Osmosis?
Have you been wanting to purchase a Reverse Osmosis drinking water system, but have chosen not to because of the wasted water that most reverse osmosis units flush down the drain? If so, you may want to take a look at the Multipure 5 stage reverse osmosis water filter. Once again, the inovator in the drinking water treatment Industry- Multipure has come up with a zero waste retro fit kit that claims to: Turn your RO into a water conserving “No Waste” system Saves thousands of gallons per ...[READ MORE]
Reverse osmosis, also known as hyperfiltration, is a process similar to membrane filtration that when used on water eliminates the presence of most heavy metals and contaminants. However, there are key differences between filtration and reverse osmosis. During the filtration process, the water is strained through a membrane which allows the filter to catch some but not all unwanted particles in the water. When osmosis is applied, it incorporates diffusion, the process of moving molecules from a ...[READ MORE]
