  • The state with the greatest violations of contamination was California (612 violations). States also reporting high volumes of contamination violations were Ohio (451), Maine (417), Connecticut (318) and Indiana (289).
  • The contaminant most frequently cited was the presence of coliform bacteria. Also sited were contaminations of lead and copper, arsenic and nitrates.
  • It this problem is not simply isolated to the schools that have wells. Schools that get their water from public utilities showed contamination too. This was more evident with schools in older buildings. Older school buildings were more likely to have higher levels of lead concentration most. Concerned? Most home water treatment systems like a Rayne Reverse Osmosis System will remove much of these toxins and produce healthy drinking water for our children in school. These Rayne Systems are fitted to Water Fountains and Water Coolers for public consumption applications. (Read more about this story here)]]>

    What is a Water Softener?

    Posted by Rayne Water

    <![CDATA[WQA “Water Quality Association” defines soft water as any water which has been processed in some manner (like a Conditioner) BUT must be able to reduce the total hardness to 1 grain per gallon or less, expressed as calcium carbonate equivalent. The water softener system also needs to be certified S100 by the WQA in order to be a softener. If you are buying a softener, make sure it is WQA-certified S100 or similar standard.
    In other words, unless a Water Conditioner actually reduces the total hardness to 1 grain per gallon or less, it cannot be called a Water Softener.
    Consumers are advised to be certain that they understand exactly what benefits are claimed before they purchase any water conditioner device.
    Only a Water Softener or a Reverse Osmosis/Water Purifier System can get your water below 1 grain of hardness. Only these two products actually soften hard water. Period.
