8 Things You Should Know Before Purchasing a Water Filtration System
When researching water filtration systems, especially websites and other marketing materials, there are eight things you should seek to know when comparing systems, and before making a purchase.
1) Do they completely remove invasive acids?
2) What is the alkalinity of the water?
3) How do they achieve the alkalinity claimed?
4) What is the TDS (total dissolved solids) concentration value?
5) What alkaline minerals do they use to achieve the TDS?
6) Do they have a thorough third-party lab analysis report available on request?
7) Do they use bicarbonate salts?
8) Is the water 100% free of all undesirable contaminants?
Water produced from the PristineHydro™ WATER REVIVAL SYSTEM has a high-alkaline pH of approximately 10! Once the system is broken in, the product water’s TDS is low, approximately 20-60 parts per million. The TDS in Pristine water constitutes the magnesium the system puts back in once all undesirable ions have been removed. There are also traces of calcium, sodium bicarbonate, as well as silica and chloride. These trace elements and their values are dependent on the source water feeding the system, which will vary from location to location.
“Alkaline Water” has become the latest marketing buzz word for bottled water and water filtration system companies. What consumers don’t understand is that you can “alkalize” dirty water by just adding metals to the water. In other words, saying a water is “alkaline” does NOT necessarily mean the water (1) has any buffering capacity, (2) has substantial alkalinity, (3) is 100% free of contaminates, or (4) is free all harmful acids. The tap water here in Columbus and Central Ohio is alkaline as it has a pH of around 8 but it is still loaded with harmful acids and other contaminates!
Many people are convinced that alkaline water produced by an ionizer is sufficient to neutralize acid in the body; it’s just not true. The buffering capacity of a solution is in the parts per million (ppm). Water ionizers use a process known as electrolysis to take all the acid out of tap water, which basically just produces acid-free tap water. This process even removes the beneficial ortho silicic acid, a bio-available form of silica highly beneficial to your health. Most people also do not know that the quality of the product water that ionizers produce is completely dependent on the source water quality! Check the ppm of the source water and the product water, it’s virtually the same. Sometimes the TDS is even higher because of the buildup of harmful hard minerals inside the machine! On top of all that, electrolysis also obliterates water molecules. Alkaline water ionizers are not water purifiers. The quality of water they produce falls short of pristine, but they are often marketed with great success.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) water filters take most contaminates out of water, however they do not address acids, or properly remineralize or restructure the water. RO water is unstable, it is known as aggressive (hungry) water; it will eat into copper, lead and galvanized pipes. Just imagine what drinking acidic water without alkalizing minerals will do to your body…?
There must be sufficient alkaline minerals in the water we drink; it has to be free of invasive harmful acids and contaminants!
The PristineHydro™ WATER REVIVAL SYSTEM is the only system that produces water that is 100% free of invasive acids, 100% free of undesirable contaminates, has a high-alkaline pH, and an ideal low TDS all verified by a thorough third-party lab chemical analysis.
When you add their Electrolyte Balance™ formula to PristineHydro™ water you can adjust the content of “alkalizing” minerals to help buffer excess acids from your body with what most American’s bodies are most deficient in; MAGNESIUM. It’s killing 2 birds with 1 stone.
The alkaline minerals in nature’s original water formula are calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium bicarbonate electrolyte salts (calcium and magnesium bicarbonate are complex hydrate salts that only exist in liquid form). Bicarbonate electrolyte salts safely and effectively buffer excess acids from the body.
Electrolyte Balance™ has four bicarbonate electrolyte salts that facilitate voltage-gated ion channels in the body. It is all rich in silicic acid a liquid form of silica. However, it is about 90% magnesium bicarbonate, because magnesium deficiency is so prevalent today. Sufficient magnesium levels lead to safer detoxification and chelation; in fact, it makes chelation possible.
