A 2009 study by the Environmental Working Group – a nonprofit environmental research group in Washington D.C. – ranked Las Vegas and North Las Vegas drinking water among the worst quality in the nation. Las Vegas water contains 30 pollutants, including small amounds of radium, arsenic, and lead; a dozen exceeded the EPA’s health guidelines. North Las Vegas water contained 11 chemicals that exceeded health guidelines set by federal and state agencies. Researchers found the drinking water had traces of 26 contaminants, including radium. Las Vegas homeowners need Water Filtration Systems.
There are three basic types of water filtration and water conditioning systems available for your home. These systems cover your whole home and water system, including your bathroom, kitchen, and laundry rooms. Many systems can be done in a localized installation for a specific sink for drinking water.
Ion exchange (salt/potassium) is a well-known type of water softening system that has been available for quite a long time. Ion exchange replaces the calcium and magnesium in water with salt, potassium or hydrogen. Of these three options, salt is perhaps the best-known water softening regeneration solution.
Salt-free (descaling) softeners don’t use chemicals or remove minerals to soften water, but instead use nanotechnology or CitraCharge to change the structure of the molecules in the water from scale building to non-scale building. The water goes through a filtering media, and the molecules are restructured as they flow through the tank.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a specialized method of screening out water contaminants using a fabricated membrane. This process thoroughly removes chemicals, pharmaceutical residues, bacteria, algae, radioactive particles, etc., from the water. RO will screen out almost all of the toxic fluoride, radioactive fallout and drug residues that are in most city water.
