PFAS Removal From Your Family’s Water With One Efficient System

Water all over the country has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS, and our area is not exempt. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

Eighteen million Americans live in communities where the water systems are in violation of the law. As a matter of fact, the federal agency in charge of making sure those systems are safe not only know these issues exist, they’ve done little to stop them, according to information provided by CNN, which cites multiple sources and water experts.

Our goal is not to scare but educate our local community about water quality is a top priority. We’ve worked with many local families to improve their water and to provide peace-of-mind, knowing the water they drink and bathe in is free of harmful contaminants.

Contact us today to learn more about our professionally installed and serviced drinking water system that removes PFOS contaminants. Fill out the contact form or call (260) 286-7617!

What are PFAS, PFOA, PFOS and What’s The Difference Between Them?

In a nutshell, PFAS stands for per- and polyflouralkyl substances, which are synthetic chemicals used to make everyday products we all use (your cell phone, your non-stick pans, some food packaging, most things that used to be made at 3M are made of PFAS). PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid, also referred to as C8) and PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate) are simply two types of PFAS, and the difference between the two is the number of carbon atoms in the chain of polyflouralkyl. GenX is also considered a PFAS contaminant.

These chemicals have been around for almost 80 years when they started being manufactured in the 1940s. Unfortunately, a lot of chemical waste ends up being dumped in the water supply we drink from. Imagine 80 years of chemical waste contaminating the water we use every day.

The Water Quality Association (WQA.org) tells us exposure to PFAS can happen when we eat food grown in soil contaminated by PFAS or drink water that has been contaminated and not properly filtered out. It can also be released through the household products we use to clean our homes.

Some potential health risks of PFAS exposure are cancer, a weakened immune system, fertility issues, low birth weight for infants, abnormal levels for cholesterol and thyroid hormones, and inflammation of the liver. Other health-related issues are still under research.

When I called on 5-13-24 the lady said yes that they... service my Marlo water softener & I was scheduled for service on 5-15-24. On 5-15 I received a call for Jeff (a sales associate) tried to tell my softener was old & media was cheap & wore out. So I called the office they rescheduled me for 5-20-2024 between 9am & noon. So today the service technician (Dave Watts) showed @ 11:48am serviced, reprogrammed the unit & regenerated the unit and said he thinks it good to go. The service technician was great but the other people gave me the runaround.read more

The installers are very knowledgeable, they pay attention... to details, they go the extra mile. The installers were early, waited on me, you don’t see early often!! My sales rep wasn’t sure if they could find a way to run the lines, they were creative, thoughtful, considerate of my property. The installers worked well as a team. The installers had great time management, cared about my cats so they didn’t get trapped in the crawl space, that was so kind of them. The installers explained exactly what they did, how the lines were ran. They were very thorough explaining the app and water system to me. The installers were patient and friendly with me while I was completing the paperwork. I feel I had the best installers this company has, they trouble shoot, solved problems unique to my home and got me taken care of!! These installers are unique, we all know how work ethic has become this day and age, they showed up to find away to ensure me as a customer!! I’m so grateful!! I want the health of my family first!! These installers really show customers the quality you’re getting when you go with Tri-county water equipment!!read more

This is the 2d time Jeff (I think that's his name) has... delivered to us. Have to tell you, it's not easy at all to get the salt to the basement where the softener is. I struggle with one bag but he managed well. Not saying it wasn't a struggle but he was still smiling when he was finished. What a pleasant young man.read more
