PFAS Removal From Your Family’s Water With One Efficient System

Water all over the country has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS, and our area is not exempt. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

Eighteen million Americans live in communities where the water systems are in violation of the law. As a matter of fact, the federal agency in charge of making sure those systems are safe not only know these issues exist, they’ve done little to stop them, according to information provided by CNN, which cites multiple sources and water experts.

Our goal is not to scare but educate our local community about water quality is a top priority. We’ve worked with many local families to improve their water and to provide peace-of-mind, knowing the water they drink and bathe in is free of harmful contaminants.

Contact us today to learn more about our professionally installed and serviced drinking water system that removes PFOS contaminants. Fill out the contact form or call (517) 888-0868!

What are PFAS, PFOA, PFOS and What’s The Difference Between Them?

In a nutshell, PFAS stands for per- and polyflouralkyl substances, which are synthetic chemicals used to make everyday products we all use (your cell phone, your non-stick pans, some food packaging, most things that used to be made at 3M are made of PFAS). PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid, also referred to as C8) and PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate) are simply two types of PFAS, and the difference between the two is the number of carbon atoms in the chain of polyflouralkyl. GenX is also considered a PFAS contaminant.

These chemicals have been around for almost 80 years when they started being manufactured in the 1940s. Unfortunately, a lot of chemical waste ends up being dumped in the water supply we drink from. Imagine 80 years of chemical waste contaminating the water we use every day.

The Water Quality Association (WQA.org) tells us exposure to PFAS can happen when we eat food grown in soil contaminated by PFAS or drink water that has been contaminated and not properly filtered out. It can also be released through the household products we use to clean our homes.

Some potential health risks of PFAS exposure are cancer, a weakened immune system, fertility issues, low birth weight for infants, abnormal levels for cholesterol and thyroid hormones, and inflammation of the liver. Other health-related issues are still under research.

Figured I would give a review now after having bought a... EcoWater Water Softner from them about 3 months ago. Had pretty hard water in Mason that they tested for 35 gpg. They had two people out to install the water softner and were able to answer my many questions I had about it then. Initially after getting it installed we had a lot of milky looking water for about 3-4 days or so that just eventually went away. It appeared to all just be tiny air bubbles that would float up after 30 seconds of sitting and the water looked clear after. Not sure if that was normal and caused by the water going through the softner for the first time or something else since they had put in some new water pipes but was just something we noticed. Never called them to find out. Tested our water with a Hach water test kit and it is less then 1gpg currently. Still noticed a little build up of that chalky residue from the hard water on the sinks for about a month or so after, but it definitely does not seem to be building up much anymore. I am sure that will continue to get better the longer we have it and continue running soft water through our pipes. But overall it was a good experience and I don't think I would have any issues if I ever needed maintenance done on it or any further work from them down the line.Update: after having for many months the water is completely cleared up and It was a great purchaseread more
