Color Palette

What color is your water?

If the water in your home appears green, blue, orange, brown or any other color than clear, you probably have an easily fixable problem with a water treatment system.

Nose

What does your water smell like?

No one wants smelly water. If you notice an odor when you are near a source of water in your home, you probably need to treat your water. Deciding between a whole house system or a system that is installed only where the problem exists is your next step.

Bad taste

What does your water taste like?

Water should be tasteless. If you notice a salty or metallic taste when drinking a glass of water from your home, a water treatment system can easily remove these unwanted tastes.

What are PFAS?

PFAS is an acronym for per- or polyfluoroalkyl substances. You may have heard of them referred to as ‘forever’ chemicals. This is because they are known to resist breaking down. They can accumulate in our environment and in our bodies over time.

What are PFAs?

Smelly water may indicate the presence of contaminants.

PFAS, or ‘forever’ chemicals, are known to resist breaking down. They can accumulate in our environment and in our bodies over time. The most common PFAS are believed to be PFOA and PFOS.

PFAS chemicals are known to be found in substances used in fire fighting, household products such as non-stick items and water- or fire-resistant materials and in some of our food packaging. If found with a water test, these ‘microplastics’ can be filtered out of your water using custom-built water treatment systems.

What Does Your Water Smell Like?

Smelly water may indicate the presence of contaminants.

Even if you like the smell of a swimming pool, you don’t want the water you drink to have the same chemical make-up.

If your water smells strange, it could be caused by chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, dissolved solids, iron, barium, or cadmium. Find the cause and select the right filter to eliminate these chemicals from your water supply.
