Improving water quality.

With the summer months approaching the City Department of Environmental Protection is once again faced with the problem of a possible water shortage.

Once again the city has to consider drawing more water from the Croton Reservation.

Last year the City increased the draw from 150 million gallons per day to 250 million gallons per day, but had to cut back because of the numerous complaints from city dwellers about the poor quality of water, even though the Department of Environmental Protection said "that the water quality was within safety limits."

This leads to the question:

What can the average dweller do to ensure that their families and themselves are drinking, bathing and cooking with the cleanest possible water?

The answer: Filtration and Water Conditioning.

With the installation of the proper filtration system, excellent water quality can be assured. To insure that the proper system be installed, the first step would be to have a water analysis done. From the water analysis report an experienced water technician can determine the proper filtration and water conditioning system.

The various types of filtration and water conditioning systems are are follows: 1. Cartridge Type 2. Bed Filtration a. Single Media b. Multi Media 3. Reverse Osmosis 4. Deionize System 5. Cation Softener 6. Ultra-Violet 7. Ozone 8. Chemical Feed

Each system has its place in the filtration and water conditioning market. Sometimes a combination of two or more of these systems are necessary to provide excellent water quality.

Having the proper system installed in your building can insure you that the water you drink today is the best it can be.
