Safe Fountain and Safe Kitchen Systems

While water quality in North America is generally considered to be good, system upsets, changes in water treatment conditions, and an ever-increasing list of harmful contaminants like lead, copper, pharmaceuticals, industrial chemicals and toxic forms of algae found in water nationwide has caused us to rethink how we keep drinking water safe, especially in our schools.

SAFE WATER. SAFE SCHOOLS.

While water quality in North America is generally considered to be good, system upsets, changes in water treatment conditions, and an ever-increasing list of harmful contaminants like lead, copper, pharmaceuticals, industrial chemicals and toxic forms of algae found in water nationwide has caused us to rethink how we keep drinking water safe, especially in our schools.

The current EPA “action level” for lead contamination is 15 parts per billion (PPB), but medical studies show that as little as 7 PPB can affect kid’s health. (Picture a large swimming pool: all it takes are 7 drops to contaminate the water). EcoWater Safe Fountain System brings these numbers down to near zero.

Food Preparation Risks

Often overlooked, food preparation areas are another important location where water treatment is critical. Lead and other contaminants can be cooked into food in surprisingly high quantities and need to be effectively removed.

Build a Barrier and Remove Contaminants

Lead Contaminations

Lead both dissolves and particulates flake off piping and connectors when present in the water distribution system. Lead also accumulates in the bio film inside all piping that acts like a reservoir, dislodging with common changes in water chemistry, system upsets, pressure drops and high velocity flushing.

Water Mains and Lead Service Lines

Lead water main connectors and service lines from the street to the building were often made of lead before 1960. Interestingly, their replacement exacerbates the problem by freeing particulates that further accumulate in the piping downstream and give off high levels of lead for years.

Plumbing and Fixtures

Buildings constructed before 1987 used lead solder joints, which can be a major contributor of lead contamination. High content lead faucets and fountain bubblers, even the “Lead-free” products installed before 2014, can be a problem and should be replaced. Their replacement will not, however, solve the other upstream problems.

Other Contaminants and Copper

The EPA adds to the laundry list of restricted contaminants on a regular basis. Chemicals like volatile organic compounds (VOCs), residual pharmaceuticals and even endotoxins are increasingly recognized as health risks. In addition, the water distribution infrastructure is a living system, susceptible to regular system upsets, ground water incursion and bacterial growth that can occur in an instant.
Since you can’t typically see, smell or taste most of these contaminants, a final barrier water treatment system is the only sure way to protect children and provide your District with piece of mind.

SAFE FOUNTAIN SYSTEM

A blend of new technology and purpose built design brings a total solution to drinking water purification. EcoWater’s SFS in an economical solution that retrofits to your existing fountains and insures the highest quality water for students and staff. In addition to removing contaminants, it produces great tasting water that will encourage good hydration habits. Moreover, it provides the school district with an immediate solution that is cheaper and easier to maintain than bottled water.

Certified Contaminant Reduction:

• NSF 53 – Tested and verified by independent laboratory testing for 99.3% lead (both colloidal and dissolved lead) and VOC removal.
• NSF P231 – Tested and verified by independent laboratory testing for 99.9% bacteria and cysts removal.

Security:

• A Point-Of-Use approach designed to remove a wide range of typical water contaminants, ensuring
safe water regardless of municipal system upsets, water main breaks or plumbing problems.
• Systems come equipped with an automatic shut-off that monitors flow and turns off after the rated

What WE Do

Solving water problems for the residential and commercial markets is the true purpose of our business. 

Whole Home Systems

The water in your home may have several issues that need to be corrected, from hardness (mineral deposits) and turbidity (suspended dirt) to bad tastes and smells (chlorine odor). Your water may also contain things you can’t even see, such as nitrates or other potentially harmful contaminants. If your water looks, tastes or smells bad, remedying the water at each tap as well as providing the best, purest drinking water is the answer.

Drinking Water Systems

The quality of your home’s drinking water may meet local standards, but it might not meet your own. Ordinary tap water can contain dissolved metals, including lead and iron. It might contain nitrates, chlorine and mineral salts. Your tap water could also contain other undesirable substances such as sulfates, mercury, asbestos and arsenic. 

Problem Water Filters

Whether your water comes from a private well or a municipal water supply, one thing is clear, the water in every home is unique. Older pipes, a water main break, and even the distance your water travels before it reaches your home can introduce additional contaminants into the water you consume. A water test is necessary to learn if your home’s water has some additional issues that need treatment.

Water Refiners

When you take a shower, do you smell chlorine or a “pool-like” smell? Have you learned that your local municipality uses chlorine or chloramines to treat your water supply, and you would be more comfortable if you could remove the chlorine from the water before it comes out of your taps for your family’s bathing, cooking and drinking?
