Possible Water Damage Averted From Too High Water Pressure


When normal water pressure into your home is between 40-60 psi and yours escalates to 103, what do you do? It happened to me recently and I was glad I had the tools to mitigate a disaster. While at work I received an alert on my phone and contacted my plumber. He knows I just had wood floors installed and told me to immediately shut off the water coming into the home. I simply pressed a button on my PhynPlus app and the water was shut off. If I hadn’t received an alert, pipes may have burst and caused damage. A woman across the street from me had a toilet hose blow off at 2:00 in the morning. 

In addition to PhynPlus alerting of danger and giving its users the ability to shut off water immediately, no matter where you are, the presence of a water pressure regulator is important. Sometimes called a pressure-reducing valve, it reduces water pressure coming into the home to a safe level before it reaches any plumbing fixtures.

The difference is amazing!

“We are so happy to have our new water system by New Water Innovations. The difference is amazing. Our dishes dry clear, my hair is not brittle regardless of conditioner, and the taste! We can ditch our Brita! The water from the spout no longer tastes or smells awful. I wish we had done this sooner.”

Top notch customer service!

“I purchased the S38 unit around 4 years ago and it worked amazingly well. I was at the point where I was going to have to replace the water heater in my home but after 3 months of running your unit, I was able to easily flush out the heater (something that was impossible to do prior to that). Hard water stains and buildup on the fixtures went away as well. I installed a new evaporative cooler and after one year of use there were no signs of buildup or scaling.

HydroFLOW has top notch customer service! I recently had a warranty-related issue with my S38, so I contacted HydroFLOW’s customer support department, who resolved the problem quickly and efficiently. I cannot think of another company that provides this level of customer service.

I have several friends who bought the S38 after I told them the success stories that I had, and they are happy with the performance. I will continue to use your product and would recommend it to anyone who battles hard water.

Thank you for manufacturing a quality product and operating a first class customer service department!”

Does drinking water help protect your heart?

Not only does water help you look healthy on the outside, it also protects the most important organ in your body — your heart. According to a study over the span of six years, those who drank at least five glasses of water per day were 41 percent less likely to suffer from a heart attack than those who drank two glasses or less per day.

Can drinking water help with getting in shape?

Drinking water helps you look and feel your best. Want to get in the best shape of your life? Drinking water can help you reach your health and weight loss goals. Not only does it act as a natural appetite suppressant by helping you feel full faster, studies have shown that drinking a glass of cold water when you wake up in the morning can also speed up your metabolism. It even helps your skin to look young and healthy by helping to reduce fine lines or wrinkles that can be caused by dehydration.

Does drinking water have an effect on our mood and energy level?

Moody? Tired? You might just be dehydrated. Water has a bigger impact on our bodies than just quenching our thirst. When we don’t drink enough water, we can quickly become dehydrated, which can have a negative impact on our mood, energy levels and ability to think clearly. Researchers at the University of Connecticut’s Human Performance Laboratory discovered that even mild dehydration can cause people to feel anxious, tense or tired, affecting their ability to perform cognitive tasks and cope with stress throughout the day.

There are plenty of studies to support this.

One study in women showed that a fluid loss of 1.36% after exercise impaired mood and concentration and increased the frequency of headaches.

Other studies show that mild dehydration (1-3% of body weight) caused by exercise or heat can harm many other aspects of brain function.

Mild dehydration can also negatively affect physical performance, leading to reduced endurance.

Report finds tap water contaminants in every state

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), nearly 77 million people in the United States were served by water systems with violations of the Safe Water Drinking Act. This post from the NRDC states directly in its very first sentence: “America has a drinking water crisis.” That was written in response to a study conducted by the organization that found more than 80,000 reported violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act by community water systems in 2015.

The Safe Drinking Water Act is a law established in 1974 that protects drinking water supplies throughout the nation. The NRDC analysis found violations of this law across the country in every state—with the most offenses coming from Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Georgia.

In this Water Quality Products article, Erik Olson, NRDC health program director, notes two key challenges America is facing when it comes to maintaining safe drinking water:

“The problem is two-fold: there’s no cop on the beat enforcing our drinking water laws, and we’re living on borrowed time with our ancient, deteriorating water infrastructure. We take it for granted that when we turn on our kitchen tap, the water will be safe and healthy, but we have a long way to go before that is reality across our country.”
