Do You Know What’s in Your Water?
(Seriously, do you?)
We bet most people have never smelled a rotten egg but you might think that’s what your water smells like if you have some of the issues below. But don’t worry, your Sentinel H2O was designed to address many of these issues.
Can’t see’em, smell’em or taste’em, but they can pose serious health threats.
About 80% of Americans are connected to municipal water systems. Do you know where the water they treat and send down the line comes from? A deep well? A local river? A nearby lake? A nice, clean reservoir? Regardless, the water is treated in most instances with a variety of chemicals like chlorine, chloramines, acid neutralizers and more.
These chemical disinfectants also cause the creation of by-products known as trihalomethanes (THM) and haloacetic acids (HAA). In addition, most of the country (210 million Americans), now have their municipal water fluoridated without the consent of the homeowner. Fluoride is a nasty chemical derived from the fertilizer industry as a waste product from its manufacturing process. All of these chemicals have been shown to have negative health effects including reduced IQ in children. (Duh).
But your water comes from a well you say? Sorry to inform you that with well water, the situation can be even worse. Wells are often the source of water contaminated with modern agricultural products including fertilizers, glyphosate based herbicides like Roundup and pesticides. (The FDA tested hundreds of food products and couldn’t find any without traces of glyphosate). Well water can also contain high levels of bacteria such as E-coli, can have excess calcium and magnesium contributing to hard water, rust that discolors laundry and bathrooms, and be very toxic with heavy metals such as arsenic, mercury and more.
Don’t take chances with your health and that of your family. Install your Sentinel H2O for cleaner, purer and better tasting water from every faucet in your home.
Hard Water / Lime Scale
This build up in your plumbing can literally stop your water-using appliances from working, resulting in either costly repairs or replacement.
You’ve probably seen pictures like this one showing the damaging effects of lime and scale build up on pipes or water heating elements. If your water is doing this to your metal pipes, imagine what it might be doing to you.
Once your Sentinel H2O Water System is installed, it will help reduce (and possibly reverse) this long-term buildup and prevent future accumulation through a natural process known as ION exchange. Here’s a brief description of the process.
When water temperature changes, minerals can form a hard, brittle scale that collects in piping and on heat transfer surfaces like water heater elements. This insulating scale build-up reduces efficiency of equipment, increases fuel requirements, and increases maintenance time and costs.
When water passes through the Sentinel H2O alternating magnetic fields, it allows the minerals to form in a suspended state; therefore eliminating the formation of hard, brittle scale. Maintaining scale-free surfaces assures optimum utilization of your appliances from your water heater to your shower heads.
Sentinel H2O treated water controls the formation of scale and corrosion deposits without the use of hazardous and costly chemicals. And because no chemicals are used, discharged water is pollution-free and is not harmful to the environment. So you see, not only is your Sentinel H2O good for you, it’s also good for your plumbing system and may even save you money on repairs or replacements.
Just a fancy way of saying dirty water.
Suspended solids can be almost anything, but one thing is for sure, you don’t want to drink water with them.
The number of suspended solids is an important indicator of water quality. Suspended solids are important because pollutants and pathogens are carried on the surface of these particles. And, believe it or not, the smaller the particle size, the greater the pollutant load that is likely to be carried.
You’ll be happy to know that your Sentinel H2O Water System is designed to remove suspended solids.
The higher the turbidity, the greater likelihood of bacteria and other contaminants being in your water.
Our guys in the lab coats call it turbidity. It refers to the cloudiness or haziness of water caused by large numbers of individual particles that are generally invisible to the naked eye. Particulate matter can include sediment – especially clay and silt, fine organic and inorganic matter, soluble colored organic compounds, algae, and other microscopic organisms.
Measurement of turbidity is a key test of water quality. Once you’ve installed your Sentinel H2O Water System you’ll see crystal clear, refreshing water from every faucet in your home so, you can forget about turbidity in your water but keep the word handy to impress your friends.
