What’s in Your Water?

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR WATER COMES FROM AND WHAT IS REALLY IN IT?

Most people do not worry about the water that comes from your faucet unless there is a boil water advisory issued.  Water is typically safe for you to use and drink as there are strict guidelines for clean drinking water.  However, the process of making water safe to drink can often times leave it full of chemicals.   A droplet of water falling into a rippling pool of water

WATER SUPPLY PROCESSING

Water is typically pulled from rivers and streams (Most of the Grand Strand water supply comes from the Great Pee Dee watershed or the Inter-Coastal waterway) into water treatment plants, where organisms that are harmful to human health are removed or destroyed.  This is done by using disinfectants called chloramine and chlorine as well as a variety of filtration processes. The disinfection process can be complicated because certain microbial pathogens are highly resistant to traditional disinfection processes.  In addition, the disinfectants themselves can react with naturally-occurring materials in the water to form byproducts such as trihalomethanes and halo acetic acids (both have demonstrated carcinogenic activity in laboratory animals according to the EPA). 

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR WATER QUALITY

Installing a whole-home water purification system can help you and your home’s plumbing system.  A Halo 5 water treatment system is a water filtration and conditioning system.  It has 4 different filtration stages which help remove chlorine, chloramines, heavy metals, and so much more.  In addition, it has a water conditioning system that helps prevent hard water build-up throughout your entire plumbing system.  Halo 5 does not require any maintenance for 10 years and leaves you with fresh water throughout your entire house.
