HOW CHLORINE AFFECTS YOUR BODY
Our local water supplier (TMWA) is not shy about adding chlorine to the city water, although it’s a necessity to inhibit bacteria growth, the side effects can be devastating . Eczema is one skin condition that we’ve seen go away countless times after installing on of our systems !
Chlorine can also damage died hair ,skin and cause premature signs of aging. Even small amounts of chlorine can be harmful over time. When you shower, heat opens your pores and allows the chlorine to seep into your skin. Chlorine strips the hair & skin of its natural oils and causes it to dry and crack, which can lead to wrinkles.
CHLORINE, A KNOWN CARCINOGEN
Drinking chlorinated water has been officially linked to colon, bladder, breast, and bowel and other cancers. The risk of developing cancer is 93% higher in people who drink or are otherwise exposed to chlorinated water. Showering is suspected as the primary cause of elevated levels of chloroform in nearly every home because of chlorine in the water.
THE SIERRA SPRING VII
Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) – NSF certified for the general removal of chlorine, gases, fuels and disinfection byproducts such as trihalomethanes (THMs).
Centaur Catalytic Carbon – Reduces radon, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chlorine and chlorine byproducts 10-15% better than GAC alone.
KDF 55 – Copper Zinc alloy using REDOX (oxidation/reduction) to inhibit bacteria, algae, fungi and mold growth. Also removes copper, zinc, aluminum, mercury and nickel.
Zeolite – All-natural large surface area with a microporous structure for reduction of suspended solids down to 5 microns. Traps sediments, rust, asbestos fibers and other particulates in the water.
Garnet – Granular filtration media filters down to 10-20 microns and supports the filter bed.
Superior Inline Descaler – Patented inline post filtration cartridge uses a reverse-polarity magnetic field to prevent lime and scale –causing hard water minerals from adhering to pipes, water heaters and appliances.
Protector UV – High – intensity ultraviolet light disinfects water as it enters your home to eliminate bacteria and viruses.
THE ONE TANK
3 Micron Carbon Block
Increased contact time, better removal! Removes particulates as small as 3 microns in size (1/10 of 1 grain of extra fine sand). Eliminates foul odors and tastes with minimal pressure drop and a phenomenal flow rate of 28 gpm.
THE BIG BLUE
5 Micron Carbon Block
Chlorine/odor reduction as a pre filter for a water conditioner on municipal water with low chlorine levels.
