For far too long communities have ignored the creeping problems associated with environmental salt accumulation. Real damage to a watershed can occur when chlorides are added to the environment through human activity. Water softeners as well as salts from soaps, detergents, and cleaning products, all contribute to the problem. Industrial and commercial processes compound the problem even further.
Once chlorides reach a community's waste water treatment plant they are very expensive to remove. If the salts are allowed to pass through the wastewater treatment plants they are passed on to down-stream users who also rely on the water. This can mean problems for farmers, who require low-chloride water for their crops, and also cause other problems. As a reaction to higher chloride levels in water, expensive Reverse Osmosis plants have been designed as a last ditch effort to reduce the salt levels in the treated waste water so that it can be safely re-used.
Now imagine a future with a Puroserve system in every house. A broad base of Puroserve installations would be a viable, affordable alternative to expensive wastewater treatment plant upgrades, eliminating unnecessary tax increases and ultimately lowering long-term costs for the community. Puroserve can boost water reclamation efforts by catching problem chlorides in your tap water before they reach local treatment plants. Each Puroserve installation actually helps local sanitation authorities to achieve their goals for reducing salt. Puroserve is approved for use by the LA County Sanitation Districts in areas where salt softeners have been banned. Puroserve is by far the most innovative solution for improving household water quality and to addressing the problem of urban salt accumulation.
