Over 20 years ago, a life-threatening illness propelled the owner/founder of pH Prescription, Leo Szymborski, a third-generation plumber and pipefitter, on a journey to heal. The negative effects of years of exposure to the toxic water conditions of the northeast in both his grandfather and father was not the fate Leo had in mind for himself.
Research from medical doctors, science and leaders in healing fueled Leo’s exploration into how to use water to create the ideal environment for the body to heal itself.
His ‘eureka’ moment came when he learned that water can not only attain but retain an electrical charge and become an antioxidant itself. By consuming this finely filtered water, Leo was able to wean himself off of all his medications and return to a healthier state of mind and body.
Leo developed finely filtered water systems and presented them at premier medical conventions. Leading medical doctors endorsed pH Prescription’s finely filtered systems and used them at home, in their office/medical facility and began recommending pH Prescription to their patients. These endorsements, the critical point of difference for pH Prescription, is that pH Prescription provides water that doctors recommend—hence the name of the company—pH Prescription Water Doctors Recommend.
Most people think that if one just drank filtered water, the bases would be covered. Never even realizing that the chlorine in shower and bath water could be just as damaging, if not more so. That’s because skin is the largest organ of absorption and elimination– and it is naturally gifted with the ability to absorb both nutrients as well as toxins.
Good question to ask yourself: “If I wouldn’t eat it, why would I put it on my skin?”
Now, another question to the list, “If I wouldn’t drink it, why would I bathe in it?”

As our body is made up mostly of water, alkaline water will help flush out acid wastes which can lead to disease. Bottled water cannot maintain alkalinity and will lose both its alkalinity and its antioxidant potential over time. The antioxidant potential goes first. It typically begins to drop about 24 hours after the alkaline water was made. The water’s alkalinity starts to drop off about a week after it was made. You can extend the time that alkaline water keeps its antioxidant potential and alkalinity if you store it correctly. But the fact remains that alkaline water is a drink best consumed fresh.
Our body is predominately made up of water—tissues, blood, lymph, literally all our cells in varying percentages. It is said that alkaline water will help flush out acid wastes which can lead to disease. The diseases listed below are what Japanese doctors have treated and cured in Japan by means of Alkaline Water and/or elimination of toxins and wastes.
HEART DISEASE AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE The heart is the center of all blood circulation. Your blood transports all nutrients and oxygen to the cells in your body and carries all wastes away from your tissues. Acidification of the body starts in the blood. Doctors have shown that patients with high blood pressure have an acidosis condition and have shown that acid free high pH alkaline water can lower blood pressure. In order to effectively treat high blood pressure, the level of acid in the blood must be lowered.
In a healthy body the pancreas produces insulin which helps the body to use sugar and carbohydrates properly. However, in the case of people with Diabetes Mellitus, the output of insulin is inadequate for the body’s needs. The reduced production and release of insulin leads to an acidic blood condition.
Many forms of arthritis are the result of acid build up in the joints. It is this accumulated acid that damages cartilages and irritates the joints. Unfortunately, the blood cannot carry wastes out of the joints easily. Drinking alkaline water will change the: acidic condition so the body can fix the problem by itself.
As the body produces more acidic wastes the kidneys are overworked trying to reduce the acids from the blood. Bladder diseases and nephritis are acidic related conditions which can be improved by the consumption of alkaline water. Further, kidney stones form in the kidneys because the environment is too acidic. Drinking plenty of alkaline water will prevent the kidney stones from forming and can even dissolve them.
ASTHMA AND ALLERGIES
Allergies, in general are the result of an erroneous immune system which builds up antibodies against normally harmless substances. Japanese doctors believe this immune disorder is caused by acidosis. Drinking alkaline water can help create a more alkaline environment.
The skeletal structure of the body is a calcium reservoir. When the body becomes too acidic it compensates by taking calcium from the bones which leaves them brittle and prone to breakage. Prolonged usage of alkaline water can help prevent and repair the damages.
Most people just assume that their vision will get worse with age, but this does not have to be the case. If we don’t allow acids to accumulate in our cells these things would not happen. Drinking plenty of alkaline water will help!
INDIGESTION, GAS, NAUSEA
All these symptoms are caused by too much acid. Control of acid by means of alkaline water will help alleviate and prevent these acid-related intestinal and stomach disorder, including ulcers.
CHRONIC DIARRHEA AND CONSTIPATION
While these may sound contradictory, both are the result of too many acids. Too much acid causes the pancreatic juice to be less alkaline and the foods coming into the intestine to be too acidic, causing diarrhea. Drinking alkaline water will help. Doctors in Korea have found that constipation is caused by acid accumulation somewhere near the colon. It is possible that alkaline water helps the secretion of fluids into the colon by eliminating acid build-up.
Dr. Nathan Bryant PhD., states:
“People get sick for two reasons and two reasons only. Number 1, their body is missing essential nutrients that it needs to perform. Number 2, their body is exposed to toxins that prevent the body from performing. One of the greatest sources of environmental toxins is from exposure to the water we drink and bathe in. Using clean water free of toxins such a chlorine and fluoride and replete with essential nutrients will have a profound effect on human health.”
People may become ill from cancerous-causing elements. The more you can do to reduce these types of carcinogens from infiltrating your body, the better chance you have to reduce your risk to this type of illness.

The main component of structured water is energy, and that energy comes down to the water molecule itself. Structured water has lower surface tension and better hydrating properties than unstructured. The geometric patterning breaks up large low energy water molecule clusters into smaller high energy clusters, which increases cellular hydration and cell-to-cell communication.
Structured water is said to be “living body water”. It is presumed to be water very similar to our body’s liquid, which is 2/3 of the human body’s volume. This water is found inside all living bodies including humans, animals and plants. Any water taken into a living body must be converted into this “living body water”.
When we drink ordinary water, a great deal of energy is consumed to convert it into this living body water. It is said that Structured water, since it is supposed to be very close to our body’s water itself, requires much less energy for the conversion and is more easily absorbed into our body. Structured water, it is said, possesses such properties that restore our inherent normal body functions.
The smaller the molecule cluster, the better the water. The cluster in ordinary water is very high, but Structured Water has the lowest molecule structure of any water on earth. It is said that the lower the cluster (of water molecules), the easier the water can be absorbed into the body without loss of energy. This allows one to rehydrate, it is more permeable which allows it to be absorbed thoroughly into the body and stimulate the immune system.
Anti-Oxidation is one of the unique functions of molecular hydrogen water. If living things contain many antioxidants, they can maintain very high levels of health. It heightens our body’s immune system and helps suppress free radicals from attacking your cell structure. Free radicals are molecules that can damage and destroy cells throughout your body causing effects like premature aging. Structured water even prevents iron from rusting.
With pH Prescription finely filtered water systems, you will experience the taste of natural spring water, with a refreshingly light taste that quenches thirst. pH Prescription finely filtered water systems returns water to its natural state though out proprietary multi-media filtration systems, re-mineralizing and energizing it with pH Prescriptions proprietary combination of rare earth minerals to produce high quality, safe water.
Water softeners may be used if needed and will not harm the pH Prescription Total Home water systems or our drinking systems. If you use a water softener, we recommend potassium chloride, if it’s available in your area, instead of salt, because it is much healthier for drinking and has a better of effect on your skin and hair when bathing.
The negative ion media inside of the alkaline filter, when new, produces extra active hydrogen while processing water. Initially, it may make the water seem cloudy—this is normal. The ‘cloudiness’ is actually hydrogen gas bubbles. The visibility of the gas bubbles will slow within a week or two. A system that is working properly will always have a small degree of gas bubbles visible.
The Reverse Osmosis process:
This amazing process can turn ocean water into drinking water. Water is forced by pressure through microscopic “holes” or pores in a filtering membrane inside our water filtration system. These holes are so small that only incredibly cleansed water can pass through after the salt, minerals, sediment, and other unwanted elements are filter-flushed away – naturally. This filter membrane reduces virtually everything negative (unwanted) that’s in your water!
How small are these filter ‘holes’?
They are microscopic—approximately 1/5,000,000 of an inch – or 1 to 15 angstrom.
How small is 1/5,000,000 of an inch? If you were to take just one square foot of this membrane and blow it up proportionately to the size of the Pacific Ocean, one pore or hole, would be the size of a dime!
We recommend to be aware that most regular reverse osmosis filters will leave the water with an acidic pH level. pH Prescription’s Alkaline pH-RO-1100 drinking water filter raises the pH and has the capability of restoring the necessary minerals back into the water before it comes out of the faucet. These minerals are crucial for optimum body performance.
This is a natural process for the filter to adjust and harmless to use/drink. If you look very close into the water, you will see that there are air bubbles, actually active hydrogen.
This amazing process of Reverse Osmosis can turn ocean water into drinking water. Water is forced by pressure through microscopic “holes” or pores in a filtering membrane inside our water filtration system. These holes are so small that only incredibly cleansed water can pass through after the salt, minerals, sediment, and other unwanted elements are filter-flushed away – naturally. This filter membrane reduces virtually everything negative (unwanted) that’s in your water.
This system reduces up to 99% of chlorine, chloramines, fluorides, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals and more. And with our most Doctor Recommended drinking system pH-RO-1100, Reverse Osmosis Re-mineralizing Water System for drinking, restructures the water, increases oxygen, raises pH to alkaline!
Our Total Home water filtration system, pH-WH-3500, is combined with our under-the-sink Reverse Osmosis Re-mineralizing System, pH-RO-1100, to provide maximum water filtration for finely filtered “working water” and refreshing “drinking water” that is filtered with an alkaline pH.
This combination system provides you with a complete home water filtration system ensures all your water sources taste and smell clean and provide finely filtered water for taking care of the home and appliances as well as providing refreshing energized alkaline water for drinking.
A question we often get is, “if I have a whole house water filter, do I still need to buy a water filter for drinking?” The answer is yes.
Consider that you may swim in the ocean or a lake, and it feels amazing and clean to submerge in these bodies of water–but you wouldn’t drink that water, would you?
Even though you may have a whole house water filter that’s attached to your incoming main water line (point of entry), the clean water is still coming through your household plumbing. Many homes have older plumbing, which can lead to heavy metals getting into your water supply even after your whole house filter has already filtered the water. Even newer plumbing regulations allow for some lead in fixtures.
If you want to be absolutely certain you are getting the finest filtered water possible, you’ll want to filter all the water that comes into the house, and then filter again at the kitchen sink (point of use) for drinking, using our alkaline pH reverse osmosis water filter for mounting under the sink.
Our finest under-counter drinking water filter to provide your family with delicious tasting pure water that is energized to a high alkaline pH. Alkaline water has many health benefits and can have a positive effect in helping your body return to a healthier state when your body is in distress. pH Prescription has found the best way to do this is to change the molecular structure of water so that it becomes an antioxidant itself!
The best way to do this is by using our proprietary mixture of earth-based media with minerals. This process is so incredible. These proprietary medias alter the structure of the water molecule so that it produces (or frees up) millions and millions of electrons making the water energized, as well as raising the Alkalinity of the water in the process. With the smaller water molecules, they are easily absorbed into your body’s cells and hydrate your cells like never before.
pH Prescription uses a mixture of our proprietary medias Garnet gemstone filtering technology, mixed with KDF, Catalytic Carbon, Brimac High Calcium premium Carbon and Coconut Carbon—for a final polish for great tasting water—together this produces one of the finest whole home water treatment systems available today.
KDF is patented and proven to reduce chloramines, chlorine, bacteria, iron, fungus, algae, hydrogen sulfide, most heavy metals and other contaminates. KDF is brass, made of 50% pure copper and 50% pure zinc. In water this produces an electro-chemical reaction that converts free chlorine into simple chlorides. Some of the harmful components are changed into harmless ones. KDF will reduce up to 95% of chlorine before it hits your carbon filter, extending the life of the carbon by 15 times and letting it focus on other pollutants. The electrolytic field inhibits microorganisms and forms peroxide and hydroxyl radicals.
Our KDF filter meets EPA and FDA standards for zinc and copper because the copper and zinc ions tend to reattach to the KDF media. It doesn’t reduce minerals and is best used in tandem with carbon filters for truly effective filtration.
KDF 55 and 85 Provide Non-Chemical Water Treatment Media for Lead Reduction and Other Heavy Metal Reduction from Water
In New Jersey’s mercury contaminated groundwater – KDF media have been reducing mercury to levels below the MCL since 1992.
Redox media, non-chemical water treatment reduce up to 98% of water-soluble cations (positively-charged ions) of lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium, and other dissolved metals. When filtered through KDF® media, soluble lead cations are reduced to insoluble lead atoms, which are electroplated onto the surface of the media. Other heavy metals bond to the media and may be recovered when the exhausted media pass through a copper smelter.
New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection and Energy uses KDF 55 redox alloy medium in point-of-entry treatment systems (POET) to reduce mercury in residential applications. KDF media consistently reduce mercury from initial concentrations of 13 ppb through 24 ppb (parts per billion) to concentration levels below 0.5 ppb.
Major U.S. circuit board manufacturer uses KDF media for 94.4% of lead removal in the effluent water used to rinse off printed circuit boards. The water is now recycled in a closed-loop rinse-down system, which saves the company approximately $10,000 each year.
Fluoride reduction requires greater contact time as it is considered a dissolved solid. The calcium content is what reduces fluoride. Calcium attracts the fluoride whether it is calcium or sodium-based. This is why we recommend multi-stage filter systems.
Two stage systems will reduce about 50% of fluoride, three stage systems will reduce about 75% and four stage Carbon / KDF systems reduce up to 99% based on a 1.5ppm fluoride.
Besides fluoride, Brimac carbon is very effective at reducing chlorine from drinking water. Being a highly porous medium, this carbon will reduce most known contaminants. This method of filtration is used to reduce or reduce lead, cadmium, mercury, iron, manganese, copper, zinc, aluminum, nickel, arsenic, radionuclides, fertilizers, uranium, radium, pesticides and herbicides. It is the media of choice for fish farms and has been proven to reduce Malachite Green, Nuvan, Tributyl Tin Oxide, odors and turbidity. It is ideal for fluoride removal and is safe for any water application.
Point of use systems can filter about 5,000 gallons of water and whole house systems can do up to about 500,000 to 1,000,000 gallons. This can vary depending on your fluoride levels but for normal use for an average family of four.
GAC is very good at eliminating bad odors and tastes. This will reduce most contaminates but isn’t as effective at reducing sub-micron particles. It’s ideal as a post filter but doesn’t reduce minerals. Often used in tandem with other systems, GAC mixed with catalytic carbon, will reduce up to 99% of Chlorine, Chloramines and most (VOCS) Volatile organic compounds.
Our Total Home systems can filter up to about ONE MILLION GALLONS. This may vary depending on your contaminant levels, but is accurate for normal use for an average family of four. Most systems like this will last about 5 years or 1,000,000 gallons whatever comes first. The pH Prescription ™ control valve has a built-in meter to keep track of your gallons used and this cannot be changed or cleared out. It’s like an odometer on your car just keeps adding up. This way you will know when you need to replace the media inside the tanks.
For your convenience and savings, we have our pH Prescription Replenishment Program that you can opt-into for savings on regular filter replenishment.
Activated Carbon is produced from charred coconut shells, pulverized into the consistency of course flour and pressed into a block. Water is pushed through the block, filtering particles as small as 0.5 microns. The carbon essentially polishes the water molecules while leaving behind organic materials, pesticides, viruses, bacteria and cysts as well as bad odors, bad tastes, giardia, cryptosporidium and asbestos. It is best used with treated municipal water and is often used in tandem with reverse osmosis, steam distillation, ozone and ultraviolet water systems. It will not reduce minerals out of the water.
Coconut carbon is very good at eliminating bad odors and tastes. This will get rid of most contaminates but isn’t as effective at reducing sub-micron particles. Often used in tandem with other systems, It’s ideal as a post filter as it doesn’t reduce minerals and leaves a polished clean taste to water.
The pH-WH-2700 is ideal to overcome hard water issues. This system handles dissolved minerals and heavy metals including hard water. Fully automatic metered water filtering system. The tank size is 13×54 1.5 cubic feet of mixed resins. With also 1.5 cubic feet of mixed carbons with KDF. This system has a true 1” flow rate of up to 15 GPM. Reduces VOCs, MTBEs, THMs, and organic and inorganic materials.
If there are stains or buildup on your sinks and bathtubs…if you have to use large amounts of soap to clean dishes or wash your hair…or if your water tastes or smells odd, you probably have hard water.
If left untreated, the minerals in hard water will cause yellow stains on plumbing fixtures and be deposited as scale, eventually clogging plumbing and shortening the life of appliances like washing machines, water heaters and dishwashers. Scale deposits not only cut down on the efficiency of these appliances, but they also cost you money, increasing both energy and maintenance bills.
pH Water Treatment Products – Professional Series WTS eliminate the effects of hard water by reducing the Iron, calcium, magnesium and radon found there. Water is treated at the point-of-entry to the home, extending the useful life of water heaters, coffeemakers, humidifiers and household plumbing.
pH Prescription Finely Filtered Water Systems Makes a Difference You Can See and Feel:
In the Bathroom
Soap and shampoo will lather better. Hair and skin will feel noticeably cleaner, softer and not as dry. No soap scum or mineral deposits to clean off sinks, showers, tubs or toilets.
In the Laundry
Clothes will be softer, cleaner, whiter and brighter. Plus, they will last longer. Using soft water increases the life of clothing, towels and linens up to 33%. Without hard water service issues, washing machines last longer, too.
In the Kitchen
Dishes will clean more easily, and be spot free, without the film glasses get when etched by mineral-laden water.
Throughout the House
Water-using appliances will last longer and run better. Why? Because water heaters, washing machines and dishwashers using hard water can wear out faster.
Hard water passes through the media tank that contains resin beads coated with Sodium or Potassium ions. The calcium and magnesium ions are exchanged for (Sodium / potassium) ions, thus treating the water.
When the beads have trapped the hardness and need to be regenerated, the control valve charges them with brine (Sodium / potassium and water solution) from the brine tank. As regeneration occurs, calcium and magnesium (hardness) ions are freed from the beads, replaced with sodium or potassium ions; and the system is ready to soften water again.
How the Water Treatment Regeneration Process Works
The control valve will manage the frequency of recharging the resin beads that clean the water and flushing the contaminated water out of the system.
These automated systems regenerate based on actual water usage. If you are away on vacation or if you have guests staying, the control will adjust accordingly. Computerized controls are programmed with grain capacity of the softener, water hardness and how many people are in the home. Since this type of unit only regenerates when necessary. It is the most efficient in energy and salt pellet usage.
The largest single section in the “EPA Regulated Water Contaminants” published in Water Technology magazine, is the section on Organics (including VOCs, or “Volatile Organics”). In this category the EPA lists 32 very nasty chemical contaminants — many with familiar names like benzene, 1,1 dichloroethylene, carbon tetrachloride, dioxin, styrene, toluene, chloroform, and vinyl chloride. To give an idea of the extensiveness of this list, a single one of the 32 items is “Total Trihalomethanes”, a category made up of still uncounted chemicals, assumed to number in the thousands that are formed when water containing organic matter (i. e., virtually all water) is treated with chlorine. The maximum allowable level for trihalomethanes, which are suspected cancer causers and are present in virtually all chlorinated tap water, is only 1/10 of one part per million. For the Organics category, the primary treatment in all cases and the only recommended treatment in most cases is activated carbon.
The EPA’s Pesticides category lists 14 familiar poisons such as Aldicarb, Chlordane, Heptachlor, and Lindane. In all 14 cases, activated carbon is the only recommended treatment. Of the 12 Herbicides listed (2,4-D, Atrazine, etc.), activated carbon is the only treatment recommended.
For Organics, Pesticides, and Herbicides, the standard treatment, and in most cases the only treatment recommended, is activated carbon.
When people say water filter, they most frequently mean a carbon filter of some variety, because since the Egyptians discovered that storing water in charcoal made it stay fresher and taste better, carbon has been a standard feature in water treatment. Its centuries of popularity attest to its effectiveness.
If you are considering a home water filtration system, here are some things to keep in mind: Chlorine was not considered in the discussion above because EPA does not consider it a water contaminant. Although this is patently absurd, it is also politically expedient and not likely to change soon. (Keep in mind that all EPA maximum contaminant allowable are politically negotiated figures that do not necessarily have any basis in reality. They represent a compromise between the ideal and what can practically be done by water treatment plants.) Chlorine removal is what carbon is best at, and nothing else equals carbon’s ability to reduce chlorine.
The EPA has set a lifetime health advisory (LTHA) level for two PFAS in drinking water: perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluoro octane sulfonate (PFOS). The LTHA level is 70 parts per trillion (ppt) for PFOA and PFOS combined. THE PFOA and PFOS LTHA is the level, or amount, below which no harm is expected from these chemicals. There are other PFAS compounds that do not have LTHA levels.
MDHHS advice is based on the best available science and, per the EPA Lifetime Health Advisory, protective of everyone, including pregnant women, young children, and the elderly. When concentrations exceed the EPA Lifetime Health Advisory Level of 70 ppt for perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluoro octane sulfonate (PFOS) (singly or combined total concentration), MDHHS recommends bottled water or filters. When detections are lower than the EPA level, we also have recommended bottled water or filters to be used in situations when we cannot be confident that these chemicals will continue to be at low levels in your well water. If you have been notified by MDHHS or your local health department that PFAS were found in your well water sample, and that you are near a PFAS source, MDHHS recommends that you do not use your well water for drinking, cooking, making baby formula or food, washing fruits or vegetables, or brushing your teeth, unless your well water is filtered using a system that can reduce PFOA and PFAS.
You may bathe and swim in water containing PFAS. The PFAS do not easily absorb into the skin. It is safe to bathe, as well as do your laundry and household cleaning. It is also safe to swim in and use recreationally. Getting water with PFAS on your skin will not harm you.
Do carbon filters reduce PFAS?
The number of affected people is likely much higher, but data are limited. Most in-home water filters cannot effectively reduce PFAS chemicals, though activated carbon filters and reverse osmosis can eliminate some forms of the compounds.
Types of Filtration Systems
Both granular activated cat carbon (GAC) and reverse osmosis (RO) filters can reduce PFAS substances. Both systems provide less water flow than a standard water faucet.
Almandite garnet is a high hardness, high density granular filter media. It can be used extremely effectively as the lower strata in a dual media filter bed. Its high specific gravity as well as its chemical and abrasive resistance makes almandite garnet ideal for filtration.
An effective multi-media filter system will utilize larger sized media on top to filter out the larger particulates and smaller sized media to filter out the smaller particulates.
Garnet, with its high density, is heavier than most other filter media. Garnet’s higher density provides stability within your dual media bed, allowing the filter sized garnet to filter down to 10 – 20 micron particulates. Filter sand or anthracite are used effectively as the strata of bed.
Reducing fluoride from drinking water. How is it done?
There are three types of fluoride filter systems that effectively reduce or reduce fluoride from your water:
For the Total Home, the use Brimac carbon is the best and most cost-efficient way to date to reduce Fluoride and many other toxins at the point of entry to your home. Further filtration is recommended with Reverse Osmosis system for drinking, at point of use.
Using a pH Prescription Water Cooler not only provides great tasting and safe water, it helps the community, nation, and the world environmentally by removing massive amounts of plastic waste and the energy to produce it. Consider the following:
The U.S. consumes about 30 billion bottles of water per year
Making those bottles requires about 17 million barrels of oil
Unfortunately, less than 20 percent of the plastic bottles we consume are recycled
Plastic bottles take hundreds of years to degrade making them a problem today, tomorrow, and into the distant future.
Each bottle needs additional energy to be:
The following is a list of the ten most prevalent toxins found in public drinking systems and their molecular weight. Anything with a molecular weight less than 150 Mol. can enter your blood stream and affect your internal organs, bodily functions, mind health and emotional health:
Molecular (Mol.) weight
Scientists state that any molecular weight below:
750 can enter the Dermis (mid layer)
150 can enter the Hypodermis (innermost layer) and the bloodstream
Lead, Radium and Glyphosate all below 750 and will enter your Dermis (mid layer).
Chlorine, Chloramines, Nitrate, Nitrite, Chromium 6, Fluoride and Arsenic are all below 150 g/mol and will make their way into your Hypodermis (innermost layer) and the blood stream. Most people do not understand the negative impact of being bombarded every day from the water we shower with, bathe in and even just washing our hands in—we believe our water is good for us, but it is not the case.
This is why it’s so important to remove these Top Ten Toxins from your home point of entry and from City or wells. When water purification and filtering is done correctly, it’s like having a firewall on your water supply. Not letting in any of bad guys, only allowing the purest, cleanest water into our homes and bodies.
If your home’s water supply comes from municipal water, you may be used to seeing an annual drinking water quality report included with your water bill—but what exactly does this information tell you?
The Consumer Confidence Report (CCR), also known as a “water quality report,” is an important source of information that rates the condition of your home’s water. It highlights everything from the source of your drinking water to the levels of any contaminants found over the course of the year, as well as potential health effects that may occur as a result. Simply put, your water quality report is the first line of defense in knowing what’s going on with the water in your home.
The first page of your water quality report explains the standards being upheld by your municipality in providing you with the safest, most dependable water. It also likely includes the source of your water, whether from a lake, river, large well, or reservoir, and an explanation for possible contamination to the source. And, generally, the report will indicate the filtration efforts being made by the municipality, including the latest technology being used and treatment capacity for the area.
Understanding the Contaminants in Your Water
Following the summary of your water’s source and filtration efforts should be a detailed chart that breaks down the contaminants that were detected in your city water supply at the time of testing.
You will find various abbreviations and codes in the chart of your water report, which can make it look a little technical. Knowing what the information on your report means is the first step in understanding what’s in your water. Below are some key terms you may come across:
Contaminant name: The substance being analyzed in the water, such as lead, fluoride, sulfate, etc.
MCL (Maximum Contaminant Level): The highest level of a contaminant permitted in your drinking water
MCLG (Maximum Contaminant Level Goal): The minimum level of a contaminant allowed in drinking water for which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs provide consumers with a safety boundary for each contaminant detected
Violation: If any contaminants found in your water exceed your city’s MCL, you will see a “yes” in this column
As mentioned above, the MCL is a health-based guideline established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Water treatment facilities attempt to set MCLs as close to the maximum contaminant level goals (MCLG) as possible.
Though uncommon, an MCL that rises above the contaminant’s MCLG could produce side effects. For example, the MCLG for cadmium is 0.005 mg/L. If the amount of cadmium in your drinking water were to rise above this level, there’s a chance your kidneys may be affected. Less severe contaminants, such as chlorine, are likely to produce eye and nose irritation and other minor health effects if levels exceed the MCLG set by the EPA. If levels do exceed the MCLGs, your municipality is required to disclose this as a violation in your water report.
Every water quality report has a disclaimer for people that are Immune compromised. Have you ever been told by your modern medicine doctor that your tap water could be dangerous? Probably not!
Our Water Management System (WMS) with Carbon Tank filtration system, pH-WMS-900, provides quality, clean finely filtered water from every tap in your home. This filter system reduces harmful chemicals—using NO electricity and there is NO wastewater. And, this water filtration system needs no water softener application.
Enjoy finely filtered water for showers and baths, brushing your teeth, cooking, laundry and more! It also micro clusters the water and reduces chemicals like chlorine, chloramines, VOCs, THMs and KDF® is used for reducing heavy metals.
In times of storm or hurricanes or other acts of nature, there is NO NEED to rush to the store to stock up on bottled water when you can have finely-filtered water flow freely from all your taps—at home.
Yes. Our entry level finely filtered water system that reduces harmful chemicals does not require electricity needed and produces no wastewater. Our Total Home System with patented WMS Vortex, pH-WMS-900-CO, needs no water softener as it prevents scale buildup.
This Total Home water filtration system is placed on the main water line that enters your home (point of entry). Now you can have finely filtered water for showers and baths, brushing your teeth, cooking, laundry and more!
The pH Prescription Water Management System and Total Home carbon filter, ph-WMS-900-CO, uses a mixture of our proprietary medias with (KDF® ) and catalytic premium Carbon to produce one of the greatest economical whole home water treatment systems available today.
This combination works perfectly together by reducing chemicals like chlorine, chloramines, VOCs, THMs and KDF® is used for reducing heavy metals. It also micro clusters the water at the same time.
This is a benefit because water molecules come in clusters rather than single molecules. There is research currently underway to verify that when we reduce the size of the water molecule cluster, water can be more easily absorbed into the cells providing better hydration for the body and helping flush out acidic waste and toxins that have accumulated in the body at the cellular level.
This water filter system is perfect for areas with water restrictions, drought areas, or anyone who wants to conserve their water usage.More
