1) Most filtration systems remove all trace minerals from the water, thereby producing clean water

2) Being a research student with area of residues research and emerging molecules in water matrices, your reports will be encouraging for me

I have a blogs to reviews

I did see a report from the Pacific Institute on nitrate contamination in California’s San Juaquin Valley. One of the points brought out was that small water systems are the most likely to have serious problems with nitrate contamination of the drinking water. When this happens notices are supposed to go out to residents. But the notices can be written at an 8th grade reading level. Many of the people most impacted by nitrate contaminated drinking water in the Valley, are low to very low income, don’t speak English that well, and don’t have the education. A number of these people are still drinking the contaminated water eventhough it is unhealthy. Some believe that boiling the water will eliminate the contamination and make the water safe; but boiling nitrate contaminated water actually makes the problem worse. People who do understand the notices are buyimg vended water or bottled water to have safe water to drink and cook with, but they are still paying for the water supplied by thelocal water agency. This makes the total cost for water much higher than EPA’s standard for affordible water. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

My father work at a water company and he use to take water sample weekly to his laboratory and exam it.

Probably there is not enough tests done on our water as a previous poster mentioned, however, until people complain enough then there will be nothing done about it.

Best wishes,

Ruth

Congrats for your efforts to bring the information in the public domain. Its really possible to open country like US but in other countries the situation is different. The agencies responsible for drinking water production and distribution never take any responsibility. Lets hope, they will also follow your steps!!!!

Being a research student with area of residues research and emerging molecules in water matrices, your reports will be encouraging for me.

With Regards,

These systems generate water that is 100% free of chlorine, fluoride, lead, recycled water, effluent and other toxic wastes. Most filtration systems remove all trace minerals from the water, thereby producing clean water. However there are systems that are specifically designed to retain the beneficial minerals that keep you healthy whilst removing impurities. So not only does an atmospheric water generator eliminate the need for plastic bottle the water generated with these dispensers costs in the neighborhood of 6 cents per gallon.
