Being based out of Southern California, many people are aware of Carlsbad Alkaline Water. Their water can be found in many convenient stores around California and you can even go to the source in Carlsbad and fill up your own bottles and jugs. Many people rave about the water being the best on the market because it has such a high pH value. On the side of the bottle it even states that it's pH is 8.5-9.0, which actually [...]

Rain Affects Total Dissolved Solids

Here in Southern California, we have had an unprecedented amount of rainfall these first couple months of the new year. In many parts throughout Southern California, it was record breaking rainfall. Due to the amount of rain that we have been experiencing, our tap water becomes affected as well. The reason that this happens is because of the rain going in through the ground and into our water supply. The amount of rain water affects the TDS (Total Dissolved [...]

Nitrates Found in Drinking Water

There has been a release of a new report from the Environmental Working Group that has shown a widespread contamination of nitrate pollution in the drinking water of the United States. In a report released Oct. 2, 2018, the Environmental Working Group analyzed tests of public water systems and found that 1,700 communities across the United States regularly have nitrate levels that the National Cancer Institute says can increase the risk of cancer. Two-thirds of those systems, serving more than [...]

Drinking Water Violations

According to records from 2015, the EPA  said that 21 million people were served by drinking water systems that didn’t meet standards based on rule violations.   The Safe Drinking Water Act regulates levels of contaminants in public water supplies.

WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE FROM ONE WATER TO THE OTHERS?

It is a great compliment from other ‘water’ filtration companies to tell prospective buyers the they can make the same system as ours. It is equally annoying to be told by our future or past shoppers to believe that to be true. It is very easy to offer a Ford automobile to a customer looking for a Mercedes, telling them that Ford is exactly the same as a Mercedes. Most consumers know that is not true as they have educated themselves [...]
