Resources on Water Quality
Clean Water Solutions, News and Articles:
Water quality used to be a nonissue. But with pharmaceuticals in water supplies, the effects of chlorine, industrial and biological contamination, an aging water distribution infrastructure and naturally occurring substances that degrade the taste and feel of water…we’re all thinking about the quality of our water more than ever. Water quality varies from home to home. Water treatment for one family may not be right for another.
Once thought pristine, well water is also a source of concern since much groundwater has been polluted by a variety of contaminants. It’s no wonder many of us now think twice before taking a sip from the tap. Bottled water was once a popular alternative, but it’s expensive and creates waste that’s hard on the environment. Fortunately, with Kinetico, you can provide your family with fresh, clean, great-tasting water without worry or concern.

“There’s no doubt about it, pharmaceuticals are being detected in the environment and there is genuine concern that these compounds, in the small concentrations that they’re at, could be causing impacts to human health or to aquatic organisms.” – Mary Buzby, Director of Environmental Technology for Merck
