Doulton Counter Top and Undersink Water
Doulton's "do-it-yourself" Counter Top and
Undersink water purification and treatment systems to remove pollution are designed for
easy installation. Counter Top models require only the removal of the air diffuser
from your existing kitchen faucet. The diverter valve, which is already fitted to the
supply hose, is then threaded onto the faucet and the installation is complete.
Undersink models come complete with detailed instructions. Installation is easily within
the capability of most Do It Yourselfers.
Is your source just H2O? Does it have a funny taste or
Do you want your appliances and fixtures to last longer?
In the U.S., we often take clean H2O from our taps for
granted. But just because it looks clean doesn't mean it is. Threats to sources and
quality are on the rise, and EPA cannot always keep up.
Since passage of the Safe Drinking Act in 1974, the EPA has
set standards and treatment requirements for municipal suppliers almost 80 to date.
Many of these pollutants can have adverse effects on your health, causing anything from an
unpleasant taste to cancer. Public utilities are required to provide liquid that does not
contain pollutants above the levels specified by EPA's regulations. Although they usually
provide a good quality, these treatment plants are not always effective at removing
contamination that may harm public health. Sometimes, certain pollutants, like rust or
lead, can enter your source after it has left the treatment plant.
Boiling isn't always the answer. In fact, unless the
contamination is caused by bacteria or a virus, boiling can make the problem worse by
concentrating the pollutant in the reduced volume left in the pan.
