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 mater 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 anyone into getting water treatment, however, educating 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 reduces PFOS contamination. Fill out the contact form or call (352) 292-1819!

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 amount 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 1940’s. 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.

I was having an issue with my water softner. It was draining water all over the floor of the room it was located in. I called a company that wanted $90 to come out and check the softner. I called Ecowater Systems and they came out for $40 found the problem was a clogged drain going into the ground. They cut the line just above the ground line and fixed the problem. I am very grateful. They didn't try and sell me a rebuild kit or a new water softner. They simply charged the $42.75 for a 10 point inspection and reset and regenerated the softner. When we need service in the future we will be sure to call Ecowater Systems. The tech Larry was great and explained everything. Thank YOU!!!!!

Tucker was very informative and helpful in assessing our water problems and solutions. He set up the installation of our system quickly and the work was done as promised on time and efficiently. What more can you expect. So far we are impressed with their system and customer service.

During our construction/new well we had our water tested to see what type of system we needed in order to resolve, at the very least, the sulfur smell and iron in our water. Every interaction I had with Susie was very professional, pleasant and never pushy or talking in a language I didn't understand. She recommended Tucker come out and take a look at our well and provide us a quote with what we would need to resolve our issues due to the fact we ended up having iron bacteria on top of the other problems. Tucker was very confident in the systems that Ecowater installs and gave his opinion on going with a peroxide system vs. a traditional chlorination/de-chlorination system. We ended up going with the chlor/de-chlor with a water softener and have had excellent outcomes with the system and water quality. In our previous Pasco County home with just a chlorination system and water softener (installed by another company) our dogs with sensitive stomachs were having to get bottled water because of how bad the water quality still was. With this new system we took a chance and gave our dogs water right out of the tap and they have not had a single issue and yes, it's all about the dogs 🙂 Iron bacteria, if not treated, will leave a musty smell on your clothes when they get warm from body heat and it's a very distinct smell if you have ever had it. We have not had a single item of clothing smell like this and we are sure it's due to the water systems we have installed. Overall, we are happy with the choice to go with Ecowater Systems and would recommend Susie and Tucker to anyone. They are not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.
