Whole home filtration
Setting up a whole home filtration system or whole home Reverse Osmosis system could be one of the most important health related decisions you can make. Some experts in the field have said that, from a health standpoint, the water you bathe in is more important than the water you drink. The main chemical that has experts concerned is chlorine. Chlorine is an oxidizer which is commonly used to reduce organic matter and disinfect water supplies. Once the water has been disinfected there is no more need for the chemical and prolonged contact can be detrimental.
Chlorine produces Trihalomethanes, also called THM’s, which have been linked by some experts to bladder cancer and contribute to reproductive problems. After a shower, the amount of THM’s in the bloodstream can increase by a factor of 4.

Is Your Water Safe - The Dangerous State of Your Water
Our whole home filtration systems have been designed to remove the chlorine and hardness minerals from the incoming water supply. These specially designed systems are cost effective, low maintenance, and an significant addition to the standard water softening technique.
The IROC (Integral Reduction Of Chlorine System)
uses KDF-55 MediaGuard
A KDF-55 filter media consists of finely granulated copper and zinc alloys. The combination of these two alloys in the media allows the chemical reaction of redox (Oxidation-Reduction) to take place when water passes through the media. Redox involves the transfer of electrons between two molecules, changing these molecules into entirely different elements. In the KDF process, electrons are taken from harmful contaminants like chlorine and microorganisms. This loss of electrons changes contaminants into far less harmful, or even harmless, elements. For example, chlorine-- when it loses an electron in a redox reaction--is changed into the harmless, water-soluble chemical chloride. While there are several different KDF media, KDF-55 is designed to specifically remove or reduce chlorine, heavy metals, and microbiological contaminants.
media chamber removes not only chlorine but also lead, bacteria, iron, and a variety of other impurities. Granular activated carbon is mixed with our premium high capacity resin which is specially formulated to remove the remainder of the chlorine, organics, THM’s (Trihalomethanes), tastes and musty or earthy odors. Unlike softeners which rely just upon carbon, the IROC’s carbon will last many years because the chlorine does not have a deleterious effect upon it as the majority of the chlorine is removed by the KDF-55 REDOX media.
Used ahead of Reverse Osmosis (RO Drinking Water Systems) and ion exchange systems (Water Softeners), KDF process mdia also safeguards expensive membranes, resins and system components.
Because KDF process media contain no chemical additivies and are 100% recyclabe, costly disposal requirements are eliminated. What's more, KDF process media are safer for the environment.
This unit comes with a warranty of 1 year labor, 10 year parts, lifetime vessel and brine tank. The IROC is availble for purchase or rental (two year contract is required).
Lemons and LimesIn addition to installing systems for “regular” homes and businesses Pure Water Systems is setting the pace for custom equipment and installations for the Central Coast.
