Water treatment methods depend
on the type of water supply you have -- well water or city water.
City water has been disinfected
through a process of chlorinization, and though it is mostly bacteria
free, it contains chemicals and by-products, such as Chloremine and
THM's and usually contains heavy metals such as lead, copper, and aluminum.
Many municipalities are finding
various types of viruses such as cryptosperidium. Research is also finding
that we absorb as much or more chemicals, such as chlorine, through
bathing and showering than we do by drinking.
Most water is hard, the result
of a high content of limestone and calcium. This causes water spots
on dishes, scale building of hot water heaters, dishwashers, sinks and
faucets. According to some medical journals this may cause kidney stones
and gall stones.
Treating City Water:
Crystal Springs Water can
help you find the right treatment method.
A simple, inexpensive portable
attachment to the kitchen sink can be used to remove chlorine and lead.
Shower filters with message
heads can be used to remove chlorine and will filter about 15,000 gallons
of water. This will last about 1 1/2 years for two, five minute showers
Reverse Osmosis (RO) delivers
the purist water possible for cooking and drinking water. It removes
heavy metals, chemicals, pesticides, and insecticides with a three stage
water filter system that is installed underneath the kitchen sink, along
with a 2 1/2 gallon water storage tank and includes a high reach faucet.
Whole house water de-chlorinization
with a manual or automatic filter is also available. Its an activate
carbon filter and removes chlorine and its by products for safe showering
Whole house water softening
filter can be used to remove water hardness.
With well water you are never
certain of the bacteria content and many things can leak into the supply
such as septic tank overflow, fertilizers, insecticides, and other toxic
chemicals. Also natural problems exists such as algae, iron, hardness,
hydrogen sulfide (sulfur -- most noted by its rotten-egg smell), and
various other heavy metals.
Treating Well Water:
In Central Florida, and many
other parts of the country, a chlorinization system can treat well water.
This consists of a chlorinizer, retention tank (80 to 120 gallons),
a de-chlorinizer, a water softener, and the RO system.
