Understanding Water Contamination
To fully appreciate the efficiency and reliability of the ELV8 whole house water filtration systems, it’s crucial first to understand the complexities of water contamination. Water contamination is an issue of global concern, influencing not just our health but also the functionality of our home appliances and the overall quality of life.
At the heart of water contamination is a variety of contaminants, each with its own characteristics, sources, and potential effects on health. These impurities can range from naturally occurring minerals and substances to human-made pollutants and disinfectants used in water treatment.
For instance, hard water, which is a common problem in many households, is a result of minerals like calcium and magnesium being dissolved in the water. While these minerals are not harmful to our health, they can create many inconveniences such as staining on fixtures, difficulty in creating lather with soap, and even potential damage to appliances due to scale build-up.
Another category of contaminants includes heavy metals like lead, arsenic, and mercury. These substances often make their way into our water supply through industrial waste, plumbing materials, and natural deposits. Exposure to heavy metals can lead to severe health issues, including neurological problems and high blood pressure.
Disinfectants like chlorine and chloramines, used widely in water treatment processes, can also pose concerns. Although effective in killing harmful bacteria and other pathogens, they can affect the taste and smell of the water and, in some cases, lead to health problems with long-term exposure.
Understanding the array of these contaminants helps underline the necessity for comprehensive water filtration solutions. ELV8 whole house water filtration systems by Clean Water Co are engineered to target these impurities, ensuring the water you use in your home is as pure and safe as it should be. Each system employs a tailored combination of filtration and conditioning processes to deliver optimum water quality. In the following sections, we will explore the specifics of these systems and how they work to combat water contamination.
Among the solutions offered by Clean Water Co for comprehensive water purification is the ELV8 UltraSoft. This system is a game-changer, specifically designed to tackle hard water issues in your home, rendering soft, clean water for all your domestic needs.
The cornerstone of the UltraSoft’s effectiveness lies in its use of a resin-based filtration medium. Resin is a substance frequently employed in water softening systems due to its superior ability to exchange ions. In the context of hard water, resin removes calcium and magnesium ions – the primary causes of water hardness – and replaces them with sodium ions. This process is termed ion exchange and it’s the primary mechanism by which water softeners reduce hardness.
Why is this important? The removal of hardness-causing minerals from your water supply brings about several advantages. For one, it prevents the formation of scale build-up in your home’s water appliances, from your coffee maker to your washing machine, thereby enhancing their efficiency and longevity. It also aids in the preservation of the aesthetic quality of your fixtures and fittings by preventing staining and spotting, often caused by hard water. Additionally, soft water enhances the lathering capability of soaps and detergents, leading to cleaner laundry and dishes, and softer hair and skin.
However, the ELV8 UltraSoft doesn’t stop at merely softening water. It is expertly engineered to deliver clean, purified water devoid of unwanted contaminants. This provides a layer of protection for your household, minimizing exposure to potentially harmful substances that may be present in your tap water.
As for maintenance, the UltraSoft system is designed with ease and convenience in mind. Generally, it will require maintenance every 1 to 2 years, which is carried out seamlessly by Clean Water Co’s team of trained professionals. This ensures your system continues to function optimally and your home continues to receive a steady supply of soft, clean water.
Notwithstanding, every home’s water needs and quality are unique, and what works for one household may not be the most efficient solution for another. Hence, it’s vital to get your water tested to understand its specific characteristics and choose a filtration system accordingly. Clean Water Co offers a free water test and system estimate to help you in this regard.
In the next section, we will delve into other remarkable systems from Clean Water Co – the ELV8 4S and the ELV8 7S, which offer additional stages of filtration to tackle a broader range of contaminants.
While the ELV8 UltraSoft is a brilliant solution to combat hard water, the ELV8 4S broadens the scope of filtration to handle a more extensive range of water contaminants. This four-stage water conditioning system represents a comprehensive approach to water purification, targeting hard water, heavy metals, disinfectants, and other chemicals.
Let’s delve into the intricacies of this system and how each layer contributes to an exceptional water purification experience.
Granular Carbon – This is the first stage of the ELV8 4S system. Granular Carbon filters are extremely effective at removing chlorine, taste, and odor from water. They operate through a process called adsorption, where unwanted particles adhere to the filter material’s surface. The result is water that is significantly purer and more pleasant to consume.
Resin – The second layer, consisting of resin, specifically targets hard water. As described earlier, it operates on the principle of ion exchange, replacing hard-water-causing ions, namely calcium and magnesium, with sodium ions.
KDF – The third layer utilizes a granulated mix of copper and zinc alloys, commonly referred to as KDF. KDF is remarkable at reducing heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, and iron from your water supply. It also curbs the growth of bacteria, algae, and fungi, enhancing the overall safety and quality of your tap water.
Stone Bedding – The final stage of filtration in the ELV8 4S system uses stone bedding. This element is crucial for trapping large particles, sediment, and other contaminants that may still be present in the water. It operates by allowing water to flow through its pores and surface, capturing and filtering out impurities.
In terms of maintenance, the ELV8 4S is designed to last. You can expect to require professional maintenance every 3 to 5 years, further testifying to the system’s reliability and durability. Furthermore, Clean Water Co’s in-house team of experts will handle all necessary maintenance, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.
The ELV8 4S thus presents a sophisticated solution to homeowners seeking to eradicate a broad spectrum of water contaminants. However, if you’re seeking the absolute pinnacle of home water purification, the next section on the ELV8 7S – Clean Water Co’s comprehensive, seven-stage water purification and softening system – is for you.
The ELV8 7S is the pièce de résistance of Clean Water Co’s whole home water filtration lineup. As the industry’s first seven-stage water purification and softening system, the ELV8 7S addresses virtually every known water contaminant, offering unparalleled peace of mind and clean, high-quality water throughout your home.
One of the defining attributes of the ELV8 7S system is its comprehensive and meticulously designed filtration process. It uses the following filtration media:
Granular Carbon – Like in the ELV8 4S, the granular carbon in the ELV8 7S targets chlorine, taste, and odor, ensuring your water tastes fresh and is free from any unpleasant smells.
Resin – The resin layer contributes to water softening, neutralizing hardness-causing calcium and magnesium ions.
Stone Bedding – This layer works as an additional checkpoint for sediment and larger contaminants, enhancing the overall filtration efficiency.
2 layers of KDF 55 and KDF 85 – The ELV8 7S doubles down on KDF. Two layers of KDF 55 and KDF 85 offer superior protection against heavy metals and control bacterial, fungal, and algal growth.
