Bottled water companies say they provide high-quality water, but do you really trust that? To start with, half of them are just selling you the same tap water you get for free at home. The other half misleads consumers about the sources of their spring water. Not only that, but companies often skimp on water treatment and aren’t strictly regulated. With a track record like that, don’t buy into bottled—rest easy with a water purifier from Angel Water!
Did you know the government says you can’t eat fish high in mercury, but lets you drink the water that fills these fish with mercury in the first place? That’s crazy! Lake Michigan contains mercury from coal-fired power plants lining its shore, and this lake supplies most of Chicagoland’s drinking water. Mercury ingestion can cause liver failure and neurological disorders. Yet, the EPA’s standards still haven’t been updated since the 70s. Protect your health by removing the mercury with a water purifier from Angel Water.
You turn on your faucet and suddenly—ugh! That rotten egg smell! You may have hydrogen sulfide in your water. Hydrogen sulfide is a compound that occurs naturally in wells with inadequate wellhead protection but can also enter water supplies in runoff from sewage treatment and other manmade processes. The jury’s out on what the long-term health effects are at low concentrations, but we do know that hydrogen sulfide corrodes your plumbing, tarnishes your silverware, stains your laundry and fixtures, and keeps your water softener from working right. Luckily, there are many options for getting rid of it. Call Angel Water today, and we’ll help you get rid of that gross swampy smell!
Iron bacteria may be forming deposits in your well—did you know this slimy rust-colored buildup is made up of not just living bacteria but also dead bacteria and their secretions, sheathes, stalks, and other waste? Gross! These bacteria make your water smell and taste musty and swampy, and stain your fixtures and clothes brown or yellow. The slime deposits also corrode plumbing equipment and clog screens and pipes, wasting your hard-earned money. Don’t let this happen to you: have Angel Water test your drinking water, and get rid of that bacteria with a chlorine injection system!
How does a reverse osmosis (RO) system work? First you need to understand diffusion and osmosis. Diffusion is the quality water has where it always tries to spread out evenly in all directions. Osmosis is when it’s kept from being able to do that by solutes, such as minerals or other dissolved materials, whose charges pull water together on the more concentrated side of a semipermeable membrane. Reverse osmosis, then, is forcing the water back through the membrane, leaving behind solutes that include contaminants like lead, mercury, volatile organic compounds, and more. You don’t want to be drinking those—which is what makes an RO system so valuable for purifying your water.
If you buy bottled water, then you’re paying too much for your drinking water. The average American family spends $615 per year on bottled water at the store, and getting bottled water delivered only reduces this to about $250 per year. Water delivery for a workplace can be more than twice that amount. In contrast, when you have a certified drinking water system from Angel Water, an annual service visit for routine maintenance only costs $139. That’s hundreds of dollars saved over the years—so not only will your water be cleaner, but Angel Water will save you money in the long run, too.
In this interview, Andrew tells us all about many of the most common contaminants found in drinking water in the Chicago area and the nation at large. He also discusses one solution for keeping your drinking water safe—reverse osmosis systems. Andrew gives us a rundown of how they work, how much they cost, and what to look for when choosing one. Don’t miss this interview with Mr. Angel Water himself!
You’ve probably felt annoyed before by how long it takes the water in your sink or shower to heat up, but did you know a typical U.S. household wastes 12,000 to 38,000 gallons of water every year waiting for hot water? This costs you time and money, and also harms the environment as well. The solution? A hot water recirculation system from Angel Water makes hot water instantly available at fixtures as well as appliances like dishwashers and washing machines. It takes only two hours to install, is silent and maintenance-free, and saves you money in the long run by improving water and energy efficiency. Inquire about an Angel Water hot water recirculation system today!
It’s easy to take your appliances for granted and forget they’re even there, let alone that they need maintenance. This especially applies for drinking water systems that are hidden in your basement or under your sink. However, “out of sight, out of mind” is a dangerous path. If you neglect to perform maintenance now, you’ll be paying big money on repairs once the system finally fails. Think of it like a car: oil changes are cheaper than engine repairs. So, before you let your system reach that breaking point, call Angel Water and schedule your annual inspection and maintenance visit today!
