Did You Know?   

Water and the Minerals it contains are vital for the human body.  We drink water. We bathe in water. We cook with water. 

But, is the water in your home dangerous for your health?

Bacteria, Viruses and Parasites

Bacteria, Viruses and Parasites

The water we consume may contain bacteria, viruses and parasites that may cause diarrhea, vomiting, headaches, fever, and sometimes even death.

Water coolers as well as mineral water bottles are bacteria incubators because they do not use chlorine which prevents them.

Examples:

In September 2020, residents of Lake Jackson, Texas, have been warned about using tap water after a deadly brain-eating microbe was found in the city’s public water supply. Tests confirmed the presence of Naegleria fowleri in the system. The amoeba can cause an infection of the brain, which is usually fatal.

An investigation into the city’s water supply began after a six-year-old boy contracted the microbe and died.

Cryptosporidiosis and giardiasis are two common gastro-intestinal diseases caused by swallowing water polluted with cryptosporidium or giardia parasites that reach the intestines.

Legionella Bacteria

This violent bacteria strikes under three conditions:

1-Scale

2-Rust

3-High Temperature

An example is the outbreak of the Legionella bacteria in the city of Flint, Michigan in the U.S. in April 2018, where hundreds of people were hospitalized, 12 died and pregnancies ended due to the violent bacteria.


 

Lead

Lead

Water travels a long way and flows in many pipes until it enters your home.
In the U.S. water pipes and fittings are made of metal that may contain: iron, zinc, copper, lead and plastic. These pipes and fittings may even be 120 years old.
The flow of water and air through the pipes and fittings creates a chemical process (corrosion) that corrodes them and causes lead leakage into the water.
An identical process occurs in the piping running through your home.
Lead is very dangerous to the human body!
It is important to note that lead does not only enter the bloodstream through what you drink but mainly, through skin pores and the respiratory system as a result of contact with water or breathing its vapors when bathing.
Exposure to lead may cause diseases such as various types of cancer, and also harm the brain, liver and kidneys.
The main victims of lead exposure are children up to 9 years of age.
This group absorbs lead into the body 4-5 times more than adults.
The Puretek Water System is the only water filtration system in the world that successfully reduces lead leakage from pipes and fittings in your home.
Reduces the level of lead entering your home from your water supplier.

Microplastics in Drinking Water and Plastic Bottles

Microplastics in Drinking Water and Plastic Bottles

Scientists examined dozens of tap water samples from countries around the world. The findings were disturbing because 83% of the samples were found to be contaminated with plastic fibers.
The U.S. had the highest contamination rate – plastic fibers were found in 94% of the tap water samples.
This is concerning for three main reasons:
Very small plastic particles may carry bacteria and viruses.
Plastic particles may contain heavy metals.
These plastic particles may get stuck in body tissue and cause infections.
The Puretek Water System filters water to a level of less than 1 micron, stopping PLASTIC MICRO FIBERS from entering your home.
Scale Deposits

Scale Deposits

Scale deposits impair the taste of water and may therefore affect the taste of your coffee and the tap water your drink. Scale buildup also causes white residue on bathroom fixtures, causing them to lose their natural shine. Scale may also cause corrosion and even leaks.

Hard Water:
If you’ve ever felt that no matter how much you moisturize your skin, or how dutifully you care for your hair, neither feel quite as you’d like them to, hard water could be to blame.
Electricity Savings

Electricity Savings

One of the most common problems caused by scale is its buildup on heating elements (dishwasher, hot water piping, washing machine…), which damages them. Also, a layer of scale creates a layer of insulation, which increases electricity use – every inch of scale leads to an increase in electricity consumption, and therefore a higher monthly expense that can be reduced.

*The Water System reduces up to 99% of all scale deposits in all water in your home.

Magnesium

Magnesium

Magnesium ranks fourth in the table of common minerals in the body. It has an active and important role in over 300 activities in the human body, especially in supplying 50% resilience to myocardial infarction.

Higher magnesium levels are beneficial for basic conditions to have good health.

What causes magnesium deficiency?

Magnesium deficiency is due to the increasing use of desalinated water, or filters that damage the magnesium.


Home Reverse Osmosis Purifiers.

Use of water filtration systems, which treat scale and may damage the magnesium in the water.


Magnesium helps with Physiological condition of the body which may require higher amounts of magnesium, such as growth, pregnancy, heart disease, diabetes, and organ transplants.

Magnesium is vital in about 300 biochemical processes in the fetus and the mother’s body. It is important for transmission of the genetic code, skeleton-building and creating fetus energy reserves.

Magnesium deficiency can cause muscle cramps in the limbs, a drastic increase in blood pressure, fluid retention and even pregnancy toxemia, which may even cause miscarriage and endanger a woman’s life.

Magnesium deficiency may cause fetal brain damage.

An international study showed 60% of complicated pregnancies are put on magnesium supplements.

Magnesium affects muscle relaxation and prevents premature labor contractions by relaxing the uterus.

The Puretek Water System proactively adds magnesium at a level of 60 mg/L, and is suitable for both natural and desalinated water.
