We are fortunate to live in a country where there is an abundant supply of drinking water; however, there is a growing concern about the safety of our water wells. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has estimated that across the nation as many as 52 percent of community water wells and 57 percent of domestic water wells are contaminated by a measurable amount of nitrates and nitrites. This is especially a concern for California and other agricultural areas where millions of people are relying on contaminated groundwater for their drinking water supply.
Nitrates and nitrites at higher levels are toxic and particularly dangerous for infants and children as well as pregnant women. In some cases, these compounds can cause brain damage, intrauterine growth retardation, cardiac and nervous system defects and even death. So how do we reduce these levels in our water? It starts with a LINX® Drinking Water System, this system not only reduces nitrates and nitrites, but it reduces them to non-detect levels. We are especially proud that this system has been awarded the Gold Seal for nitrate / nitrite reduction from the Water Quality Association (WQA), a non-profit association representing the water treatment industry.
Currently, there are no standards or oversight that exists for private wells so it is up to homeowners to test their water on a regular basis and to find water treatment solutions that will solve their particular contaminant problem. Even if your home is supplied by a municipal water facility, you don’t have to rely on their testing and standards or wait for funding to construct a centralized treatment facility to feel a measure of safety. Installing a LINX® Drinking Water System will give you immediate protection from these harmful compounds and you can feel safe knowing that they are at a near zero level.
We know how important clean drinking water is and we are committed to helping homeowners bring the safest and cleanest water into their homes. There is peace of mind knowing that you do not have to question the safety of your water and installing a LINX® Drinking Water System will ensure that you are providing your family with the safest and healthiest water you can.
