Here's How It's Done:
water tested anywhere you like. We will review your
laboratory results and let you know if the test
results are valid and accurate, explain exactly what
they mean and what you
need to do, if anything, to treat, condition, or
purify your water. We will tell you approximately
what costs might be and tell you what kind of
system (if any) you may need to purchase.
We will help you design the system so it works like
it should - with the correct purification devices
in the correct order so they are not damaged and
More important, we will tell you if you don't need
anything at all, because we don't get paid to sell
Who else has no interest in selling you on a
When we finish you
will know, what, if any water purification or
softening you need BEFORE you make a decision to
buy anything. Before you go to Home Depot, Lowe's,
or Ace Hardware. It is estimated that less than 28%
of the systems that are currently installed correct
a real problem or make or keep your drinking water
safer and healthier. Don't let a
salesman take advantage of the fact that you did
not like chemistry when they taught it in school.
That's what water chemistry geeks are here to help
you with, and that is a most important feature of
our service. Arming you with the information
you need to make the right decision!
This service is included for FREE to those who have
ordered tests from us.
But for those of you that had your water tested
elsewhere, it is available for ONLY
Analysis of lab results, explanation of lab results,
recommendations for treatment, assistance in designing
a system specific to your needs
Don't let a sales rep rush you. Ask for a
copy of their lab / test results, send / fax or
phone them in to us, and get an immediate
independent analysis from us before making a decision.
Probably the most common and
expensive mistake homeowners make is buying water softening / conditioning systems they don't
need or that won't work with their water. Water softeners are designed to remove
Calcium and Magnesium and substitute Sodium or Potassium for these "hardening
minerals". But iron, sulfate, manganese, copper, and other chemicals add
hardness too. In North Georgia, manganese, sulfate, and iron are often the real
problem. They add hardness that cannot be removed with water softeners. That's
why it's called "permanent hardness". The presence of these chemicals will
produce essentially the same effects as high levels of calcium or magnesium. It
will cause the same, or worse damage to water heater elements, ice makers,
dishwashers, washing machines, coffee makers etc. If
both types of hardness are present and one kind is reduced sufficiently, it
often brings the total hardness of the water down far enough to make it seem
acceptable. But clothing still does not come clean properly, showers still feel
like they are being taken in hard water, hair does not come clean and rinse
properly, rotten egg odors are not removed, red staining is not removed, the
water may still taste metallic, etc.
If most of the hardness is
due to permanent hardness, then typical water softening won't work, and you have
probably spent $900.00 to $2,000.00 just to continue having problems. In our
area, we estimate that about 50% of all the softening systems purchased are just
wasted money. Instead, consumers should be buying systems to remove iron,
manganese, sulfate, or one of several other chemicals. These systems are often
just as expensive as softening systems, but they remove the problem chemicals
and provide you with better water and substantial savings on cleaning supplies,
detergents, energy consumption etc..
(filters) that remove permanent hardness are readily available, just not at the
local hardware store, or home improvement stores. We do not believe that clerks
at local home improvement centers are intentionally misleading their customers.
They are just passing along what they were taught and doing their jobs, which is trying to sell the systems
they have on hand.
What is the solution? When
testing for calcium, hardness, pH, and magnesium, also test
for sulfate, iron, manganese, copper, and other chemicals at the same time
(see our recommended group). Once you
have the results, and know what is causing the hardness, install the system you
need. Otherwise, you'll install one system then later have to remove it and
replace it, or add on what you really needed in the first place. By the way, in
the process of doing this testing we have discovered that people had been
drinking toxic nitrates at 18 to 20 times the EPA limits, lead, arsenic, and other
chemicals that are actually carcinogenic and harmful to their health. If we had
not insisted that the whole battery of tests be done at least once, these
clients would never have known - even after they were diagnosed with a cancer or
central nervous system disorder - that they were at risk.
Only work if you use them
correctly. Most people are not patient enough to let the system work, never test
the system to see if it works properly, and don't replace the cartridges or
filters often enough. These filters do not remove substantial quantities of
any contaminant for more than a few weeks, after which they are usually
exhausted, channeling, or dumping accumulated toxins and growing bacteria. It's
cheaper in the long-run (and you get better purification), to purchase a good
under-counter system. (Note: we now have a system that is better than an
under-the-counter system, but does not need to be installed under the counter.
Please email us if you want to know more (Dr_e@awsa.info). None
of the countertop systems work well without proper pretreatment, which is usually not
available in most homes. Don't believe this? Try what we did. Take a sample of
your water at the bathtub, and another at the site where you have the filter,
and send them off for analysis. If they come back substantially different in
chemical composition, let us know.
More Scam Busting:
If anyone has come to your
door or visited you to test your water for free and then offers you a treatment
system to get rid of the contaminants they found, JUST SAY NO!!! We cannot
overemphasize the need for a second opinion in this case. We are becoming
increasingly sensitive to these kinds of scams because our parents are
vulnerable, and so are the honest and trusting people who are too shy to decline
such an offer.
That's what we are all about. We work ONLY FOR
YOU and don't try to sell
anything but our knowledge, education, training, and experience in this field.
We can provide you with the truth and have no conflict of interest!!! If you don't want us to do the testing,
or provide the supplies, that's
OK! You can still get our inspections and/or professional guidance or advice at a modest fee.............What
do we get out of it? We earn a living helping people get the information they
need and keeping them from being scammed, misled, or becoming ill if their water
needs treatment. We also help them save money!
