Eco water systems keep your water crystal clear and healthy to drink, cook with and bathe in.
Why would you need a system to purify your water?
Despite our best efforts at sustaining our waterways there is always the potential danger that the water could be polluted!
Water from wells serviced from underground rivers and waterways can be polluted as well as water from municipal sources. Unfortunately your water may contain harmful materials and still look and smell good.
Water in your home may have harmful metals such as lead, iron and mercury in it. It can also be polluted with toxic chemicals from manufacturing waste, pesticides and animal waste.
Sometimes these pollutants sneak by municipal testing, other times they are just not legislated.
Everyone should consider testing their water and then if necessary installing water filter and purification systems to remove the impurities so that it is safe for use.
Polluted water can cause a wide range of problems from organ damage to the liver and kidneys, to digestive track inflammation, to birth defects and neurological disorders.
You want to be concerned with more than just your drinking water. The water you bathe in, brush your teeth with, wash your clothes and dishes in, and cook with is also important.
Your skin absorbs all kinds of compounds from the clothes you wear,the towels you use & even the furniture & surfaces you come into contact with.
Once you stop to think about all the ways your body comes into contact with water, you will be shocked by how exposed you are to its harmful contaminants!
There are a wide variety of water filter systems out there in all sizes and price ranges. Get the model that suits your own requirements.
An eco water system can be a whole house system that treats all of the water entering your home whether from a municipal source or a drilled well.
Or it can be a small system that only filters your drinking water.

The best way to know what you need is to have your water tested.
All of the companies that sell water systems offer water testing. Based on the test results, a system can be tailored to meet your specific water problems.
If you think you do not need an eco water system because you are on municipal water, think again.
Sometimes there are problems and contaminants pass through into your water. We have all heard the horror stories of municipal systems gone wrong for various reasons!
Municipal water is subject to the same contaminants as all other water sources. While a water facility does treat the water, it only has to meet minimum requirements!
There still may be harmful chemicals in your water and the only way to know for sure, is to have it tested. Many companies will do the testing for free.
I highly recommend taking this first step to see what your water situation is. If the test comes back clean, great, you have nothing to worry about.
Piece of mind is certainly worth the effort to have it tested.
If it doesn't come back clean, usually there are simple filter systems that can correct the problem.
Either way, I want to know what I am exposing myself and my family to and I want to be in control of the solution if needed.
