Eliminate Odors Don't Mask Them

What really happened to our tap water and underground water?

Clean water is one of the most important needs of our bodies. It is a sad fact that something as essential to life as clean drinking water can no longer be granted to us. Unsafe water is not just a third world problem. In fact, safe drinking water is even harder to find specially in industrially developed countries such as the U.S.

According to research articles and news, most tap and well water in the U.S. now are not safe for drinking due to heavy industrial and environmental pollution. We have reached to a point that, all sources of our drinking water, including municipal water systems, wells, lakes, rivers, and even glaciers, contain some level of contamination. Contaminants range from naturally-occurring minerals to man-made chemicals and by-products. While many contaminants are found at levels not enough not to cause immediate discomforts or sicknesses , it is proven that even low-level exposure to many common contaminants will, over time, cause severe illness including liver damage, cancer, and other serious ailments. Even the chemicals commonly used to treat municipal water supplies such as chlorine and fluoride are toxic and are known to have significant adverse effects on the human body.

What are the common Contaminants in our water source and what kind of illiness will they possibly cause?

Arsenic: Causes bladder, lung & skin cancer; may cause liver and kidney cancer.
Chlorine: By-products may contribute to cancer, birth defects and heart disease.
Lead: Can cause organ damage and lead to mental retardation.
Crytosporidium: A microbe that can harm people with weak immune systems.
Cadmium: A heavy metal that can cause breast cancer, kidney damage and bone disease.
Bacteria: Can cause serious illness or death. Use ceramic pre filter, reverse osmosis or UV purifier to remove. Power outages can disrupt water flow causing contamination.

What is deionization?

Deionization is a process of removing ionized solids from water using the principles of ion exchange. All dissolved minerals in water are composed of both a metallic part (a positively charged cation) and a non-metallic part (a negatively charged anion). Both cation and anion will be extracted by the resin beads which will then be removed from the water bye the exchange process.
