Right From the Start

If you do not have the time or dedication to do it right the first time, what makes you think you will have the time or opportunity to do it twice? In the water treatment industry, there are many shortcuts available. They may look appealing at first; however, the long-term result could be the erosion of your reputation and customer base.

The Impression Series RC water conditioner is designed to treat hardness and unpleasant taste and odor in municipal water. It features a mid-plate design combining activated carbon and high-capacity resin into one tank. This eliminates the need for a second filter, and the carbon protects the resin from highly chlorinated water. The system’s microprocessor captures data including gallons per day and peak flow rates.

Carbon Filtration Basics

Six months ago I opened the refrigerator to pour myself a glass of water from my pour-through pitcher. As I was filling my glass, I realized I could not remember the last time I changed the carbon filter. I had been thinking about replacing the filter for a while—a really long while.

Hydrofracturing & The Environment

Hydrofracturing is not a new concept—in fact, it has been utilized by the gas and oil industries in the U.S. since the 1940s. Thanks to increased media attention, however, many are led to believe that this is a new technology developed specifically for the extraction of natural gas.
