About the Equipment
All equiment supplied by Harmar Preferred Water is supplied by RainSoft who has been manufacturing and installing water treatment systems since 1953. They have an ISO rating.
Yes. The QRS Series uses active carbon filtration which is recommended by the EPA for use in municipal water treatment plants.
No. However, if your pH needs adjustment, Harmar Preferred Water can recommend suitable solutions.
You can exclude your EC4 Series water softening systems from your real estate contract and take them with you. Your lifetime warranty is good all over the world. Harmar Preferred Water contracts with an international dealer network that can help you reinstall your unit and provide you with service in most locations.
Calculate this. With a full EC4 Series home water treatment system you won’t have to buy or lug expensive bottled water. You’ll use less soaps, shampoos, detergents and household cleaners. Clothes will look brighter, whiter and wear better. And because most mineral deposits are filtered out, your expensive appliances will last longer. Best of all, your business customers or family’s overall quality of life will be improved – something you can’t really put a price on.
About the Water
PH tells us whether or not your water is acidic, alkaline or neutral. The scale is measured from 1 to 14. 1 = acid while 14 = alkaline. Ideally your water should be in a neutral state of approximately 7. The lower your number the closer you are towards acidic, while the higher your number the closer your water is toward alkaline.
According to the EPA, 0.2 to 0.4 parts per million is recommended for adequate disinfection of your water but the EPA allows up to 4.0 which is 10 to 20 times more then adequate disinfection. They have to over chlorinate the water to make sure the last house on the supply line is also adequately supplied. Any chlorine in your water isn't good and we suggest removing it. To find out exactly how chlorine is used in your town, call your water department.
That depends on your standards of “good enough.” Most communities meet Primary Drinking Water Standards as established by the EPA. But your water can still contain impurities you can’t taste or smell – impurities that can be potentially harmful. The EC4 series can take good water and turn it into great tasting healthy water that meets much stricter standards.
In the time that water leaves the plant and arrives at your home, it can pick up substances that become a part of the water you receive. Sediment and odors can also join the mixture. A EC4 Series water filtration system provides a highly effective barrier against these pollutants.
Hardness is removed by a process called “ion exchange.” Hardness-causing particles and debris are positively charged. The water runs through EC4 Series resin system, which has millions of negatively charged sites. As the water flows past these sites, calcium, iron and magnesium attach to the sites and are “bumped off.”
Very little, thanks to the EC4 Series patented regeneration system. In most cases, you’ll find less sodium in a glass of EC4 polished water than in a slice of white bread. If your doctor recommends a sodium-free diet, the EC4 Series Untefiner II reverse osmosis (RO) water system can reduce the total sodium content to near zero.
