What Makes Carbon Filters Essential?

Most water companies out there are using a carbon based filter. Most companies out there will leave it just at that without much explanation. Maybe you're wondering to yourself "How exactly do carbon filters work and why does it have to be carbon?" Carbon filtering is a method of filtering that uses a bed of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities, using chemical adsorption. It does this by absorption: pollutant molecules in the fluid to be treated are trapped inside the pore structure [...]

Raw Water

Here at One Water Systems we are all about having the cleanest and healthiest drinking water around. However, there has been a new trend that we just can't look past. Raw water is starting to become a thing and we disagree with it. Raw water refers to unfiltered, untreated and unsterilized water that’s collected from a spring or the atmosphere. While the water flowing in the streams and rivers of the back-country may look pure, it can still be contaminated with [...]

Why Do We Measure pH?

The reason we measure pH (potential of hydrogen) is to tell how acidic or alkaline that substance is. Having the right pH levels is essential to a lot of things. For example, most alcoholic beverages have a pH under 7, or acidic, whereas most aquariums have a pH that is over 7, or alkaline. A well-maintained pH is essential to many things we do and use on a daily basis. The reading is taken based off of the ion activity [...]

Total Dissolved Solids

Total Dissolved Solids, TDS, is a unit of measurement of the combined content of all inorganic and organic substances contained in a liquid in molecular, ionized or micro-granular (colloidal sol) suspended form. TDS are made up of minerals, or compounds, which dissociate in water to form ions. For example, some minerals that are found in the TDS of water are calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate, etc. TDS typically has a direct correlation of harness of the water; the higher the TDS the [...]

A Review or Not A Review…. that is the question?

(REVIEW SITES EXPOSED)     This article is purely advice and a result of frustration from the few poorly run and respected companies in the field. Please note that we have nothing to gain and have never had legitimate complaints on our company or staff; but when we are posed with a demand for money or our record could be damaged, it is unacceptable and should be exposed for all to see.   Over the years, review sites have popped up on virtually every computer/mobile [...]

Forget about drinking milk or taking different supplements to get that much needed calcium intake; mineral water can be consumed [...]
