The contaminants addressed by ECOsmarte are not necessarily in your water.
CITY WATER SYSTEM
The Best Non-Salt, Non-Chemical Technology!
Whole-House, Indoor and Outdoor.
Today’s water treatment methods rely on chemical disinfectants to prevent water borne diseases from becoming epidemic health problems. Chlorination (the primary water treatment chemical) has shown its ability to control the many water borne infectious diseases, such as cholera, typhus and dysentery, which could other wise run rampant.
Since its introduction into water treatment, chlorination has become almost the sole method used for active disinfection of water. This predominant position has been gained because of the recognized potency and acceptance of chlorine as a germicide by public health authorities.
Chlorination and chemical control of simple biological organisms have proven useful and essential but we are learning the price we pay for the benefits of chemical control. The side effects of
ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry systems dramatically improve the quality of water by filtering out
The municipal Point-of-Entry system includes one water tank with an electronic control head, two bags of filter media, an electronic controller and an ionization/oxidation chamber and requires 2-4 hours to install. The system takes up less space than a water softener and brine tank.
The yard to the right is using regular El Paso city water, the "wetter" water to the left is oxygenated and ionized with ECOsmarte's whole house water system. You not only achieve the "greener" grass look, but you also use one half of the water your neighbors do. No impact on budget, high impact on curb appeal.
Of course the BOTTLED MINERAL WATER to every faucet is the reason most people purchase ECOsmarte Whole House Systems. Hot and cold, indoor and outdoor. A low operating cost of $400 for five years on city water and $700 for five years on well water.
You Can Have “Bottled Water” Quality, throughout your house,
The ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry product line brings state-of-the-art electronic ionization, chemical-free, titanium oxidation and multimedia filtration into the residential water market. This breakthrough, ECOsafe technology, creates a new standard in water quality.
The ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry system replaces water softeners, iron filters, chemical feeders,
ECOsmarte ionization and oxygenation protects your plumbing and fixtures. Ionization prevents minerals from forming hard scale by electrically charging the minerals so they cannot bind together. The Point-of-Entry system converts the calcium to calcium bicarbonate to keep it soft. The system dissolves the existing scale in your pipes, water heater, appliances and plumbing fixtures. The greatest cause of plumbing equipment and appliance failure are problems caused by scale and corrosion. With the ECOsmarte system, these problems are eliminated, reducing maintenance and prolonging the life of appliances as small as coffee makers and as large as dishwashers and water heaters.
The ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry systems create charged particles called ions. Mineral ions are safe and essential for humans, plants and animals but are lethal to bacteria, algae and some viruses. The mineral ions stop bacteria and algae from colonizing in your plumbing when water is not in use. The ECOsmarte copper ionization process is recognized by the US EPA to provide numerous microbial benefits.
The ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry systems produce a quality and volume of water at a cost not obtainable with a reverse osmosis system. The systems also provide bacterial protection that no water softener can deliver and unlike reverse osmosis systems, it does not remove the minerals that are necessary for your health. It treats all of your water, hot and cold, indoor and outdoor with no consumables and minimal maintenance for at least five years.
ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry Systems can be installed by a handy homeowner or a licensed plumber. Installation normally takes 2-4 hours.
Systems should be installed where the water service enters the home or facility. The system needs to be housed so that it is protected from freezing temperatures. The systems require 110 volt electrical service and a means to dispose of waste water from periodic backwashing of the filter media. A minimum water flow of 11 GPM is necessary to adequately clean the filter media during the backwash cycle. The water discharged during backwashing is not harmful to the environment and can be discharged onto a lawn or into the sewer.
ECOsmarte can arrange for installation by a licensed plumber in most North American markets.
Operation & Maintenance
ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry systems are totally automated and require no work or assistance to operate properly.
Most of the maintenance is also automated. The filter media automatically backwashes periodically based on programmable settings. The ECOsmarte filter media has a life span of 5-7 years. The cost of replacing the filter media is approximately $300. Changing of the filter media can be performed by the homeowner or we can do it for you by simply supplying you with a new filter tank already charged with new filter media.
The ECOsmarte ionization chamber does need to be cleaned two to three times per year. The chamber can be removed by hand, cleaned and replaced in less than 10 minutes. Copper electrodes in the chamber also have a life span of 5-7 years and cost $175 to replace. The ECOsmarte system requires no chemicals or salt to be added or filters to be replaced. It is as maintenance free as a total home water treatment system can be.
