Whether you have well water or city water, we have the right drinking water system for your home. Read about water quality concerns and why you need a drinking water system.
Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System
Reverse osmosis removes the widest spectrum of drinking water contaminants. RO technology is recognized worldwide as the leading technology available to remove harmful drinking water contaminants, including:
- Foul tastes
- And More!
Reverse Osmosis Will Save You Money
A reverse osmosis system will also save you money compared to buying bottled water. Using a residential RO system, the cost per gallon is estimated to run between 4 and 8 cents per gallon. Compare this to bottled water, which is typically over a $1.00 gallon, buying bottled water in 16 ounce bottles. (16 ozs. X 24 = 384 ounces / 128 = 3 gallons. $3.99 per 24 pack / 3 gallons = $1.33 per gallon for bottled water!)
6 Step Filtration Process
Our reverse osmosis systems reduce contaminants via a thorough, 6-step filtration process:
- Pre-filtration for sediment and other particulate.
- Activated carbon to remove Chlorine, tastes, odors and other chemicals.
- RO membrane to remove additional harmful drinking water contaminants.
- Storage tank.
- Post-carbon treatment for final polishing.
- You get great tasting, high quality drinking water from the dedicated RO faucet.

UF filter systems consist of a pre-filter for sediment, a pre-filter for Chlorine taste and odors and a UF membrane for bacteria, cysts and other harmful contaminants, as small as 0.2 micron.
Ultra Filtration (UF) vs. Reverse Osmosis (RO)
Ultra-Filters do not need storage tanks, because they are “flow-through” filters. There is no reject water, so no water is wasted. They work well under low pressure, and UF filtration is low cost.
If TDS (Total Dissolved Solids, i.e. minerals, salts, metals, etc.) is below 500 ppm, UF membrane systems are an excellent alternative to RO (reverse osmosis) technology for high quality water at reduced costs. RO membrane systems, on the other hand, are highly recommended when TDS exceeds 1,000 ppm and for TDS reduction and when a low sodium diet is desired.

Can You Trust Your Tap Water?
City Water Quality Concerns
When it comes to your drinking water, you don’t want to compromise on quality. Although the city water in Punta Gorda, North Port, Englewood and surrounding communities meets all the guidelines of the Safe Drinking Water Act, the water coming out of your faucet may not. You may be exposed to harmful by-products, produced during the chlorination water treatment process, called trihalomethanes. THMs are known carcinogens!
You may also be exposed to pharmaceuticals and other harmful contaminants, which may be present in municipal water supplies. Furthermore, if city water pipes can leak outward, contaminants can seep inward. This is why we see “boil water” advisories on the morning and evening news from time to time.
Well Water Quality Concerns
If you get your water from a well and enjoy a suburban lifestyle, you may be exposed to harmful bacteria from farm animals, nitrates from fertilizers, pesticides, run-off from septic systems and contaminated water from manufacturing facilities, located miles away.
Still Buying Bottled Water?
If you’re among the many people in our area that rely on bottled water for their drinking water, you might want to stop and consider the cost. Bottled water is inconvenient, expensive and all those plastic bottles in the ocean and landfills are surely not good for our environment.
