Chlorine is mixed with organic materials in the water as a disinfectant; however, it creates trihalomethane, a compound that is associated with a severely increased risk of bladder cancer and an even higher risk of rectal cancer. Trihalomethanes (THMs) are generally related to water treatment and distribution byproducts such as pipes, fixtures and treatment chemicals. The reason for the use of THMs are to control pathogens in the drinking water by adding chlorinated disinfectants.

Water Stains can be one of the most time consuming regrets you will have. Iron stains leave a reddish brown stain on fixtures, laundry, and more that are very difficult to remove and take a higher amount of physical effort to eliminate.

Along with tea and coffee, iron also darkens the appearance of vegetables cooked in water with high levels. This causes food to appeal less appetizing. The Ionics filtration system removes the iron reducing the possibility of noticeable iron bacteria in showers faucets and toilets. The slime residue iron creates is offensive and can cause odors as well as cause plumbing clogs. With an Ionics filtration system you can avoid these costly repairs and installments.
