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 studyContinue reading “Report finds tap water contaminants in every state”

Water is scarce

Alarms are sounding all around the Southwest — water is scarce! Municipal government’s knee-jerk response is to ask everyone to save water in their homes. Necessary, of course, but modestly effective since these are essentially voluntary efforts. Technology seems to be completely ignored. There are stunning technologies that can save huge amounts of water; technologiesContinue reading “Water is scarce”

Iron and sulfur bacteria issues

Iron Bacteria Iron bacteria are generally more common than sulfur bacteria because iron is abundant in ground water. Iron bacteria are oxidizing agents and combine iron or manganese dissolved in ground water with oxygen. A side effect of the process is a foul smelling brown slime that can cause unpleasant odors, corrode plumbing equipment andContinue reading “Iron and sulfur bacteria issues”

Not all carbon is created equal

By “medical grade” carbon, New Water Innovations is acknowledging there are different grades of carbon used in filtration. Typical whole house systems use an 8-30 mesh activated carbon. Carbon that is used in “dialysis” uses 20-40 mesh, which is more expensive and effective. NWI uses the 20-40 mesh carbon used in dialysis (i.e. medical grade).Continue reading “Not all carbon is created equal”

The Effect of Hydropath Technology on Silicates

This is a brief description on the effect that Hydroflow has on Silicates, and in particular the difference between this and the effect on calcium carbonate. To summarize, Hydroflow will prevent both new Calcium Carbonate scale from forming on the pipe, and also remove existing Calcium Carbonate scale. Hydroflow will also prevent Silicate-based scale fromContinue reading “The Effect of Hydropath Technology on Silicates”

Santa Fe’s water

Water, one of Santa Fe’s most precious natural resources, is also one of its leading environmental issues. In Santa Fe, as public awareness of the importance of protecting Santa Fe’s water aquifers increases, so too does the realization that many of the “accepted standard practices” of the past are no longer appropriate to conserve andContinue reading “Santa Fe’s water”
