3Keystone Water Filter That Has Been Trusted For Over 30 Years.
What You Should Know about Water
Water is an incredibly importance aspect of our daily lives. Every day we drink water, cook with water, bathe in water, and participate in many other activities involving water.
However, even with all of the importance water holds in our lives, many of us know very little about the water we use each day. We drink tap water, enjoying the convenience and cost-effectiveness of this practice, yet, we fail to recognize the serious threat this water may pose to our health. Those who are willing to forgo the convenience of tap water and indulge in bottled water often know very little about the contents of that water , often know little about the many home water treatment option now available.
In this age of information, with so many resources immediately available, there is no reason why anyone should remain so ill informed about water. It is the goal of this site to offer comprehensive yet accessible information about the water with which we live and work every day, including a brief summary of water treatment alternatives, an expose on the truth about bottled water, and a fact listing about drinking water and water filtration products. Read, learn and enjoy!

Water Treatment Alternatives – How Do They Compare?
There are several popular modes of water treatment and purification currently available, Infect, the market has become so overwhelmed with water treatment products that it can be difficult for a consumer to know which option best suits his or her needs. Each mode of rater treatment has its strengths and weaknesses, and each has particular situation for which it is ideal.
In the following paragraphs, you can read a brief overview of three common methods of water purification: reverse osmosis, distillation, and water filtration.
Included in the overview is an explanation of the process each water treatment method uses, as well as a listing of the contaminants that each method will remove from drinking water. We hope that as you peruse this overview. You will become more educated about water treatment alternatives and will be able to choose the most appropriate method for your specific needs.
Reverse osmosis was developed as a water treatment method more than 40 years ago. The process first arose as a technique of desalinating sea water. Once the method’s decontaminating capabilities were recognized, reverse osmosis systems began to be commercially produced for home water purification purposes. Such systems were installed in homes as early as the 1970s. Reverse osmosis systems seemed a viable option to the more costly and energy-wasteful distillation units.
The reverse osmosis process depends upon a semi-permeable through which pressurized water is forced. Reverse osmosis, simply stated, is the opposite of the natural osmosis process of water. Osmosis is the name for the tendency of water to migrate from weaker saline solution to a stronger saline solution, gradually equalizing the saline composition of each solution when a semi-permeable membrane separates the two solutions in reverse osmosis, water is forced to move from a stronger saline solution to a weaker solution, again through a semi-permeable membrane. Because molecules of salt are physically larger than water molecules, the membrane blocks the passage of salt particles. The end result id desalinated water on one side of the membrane and a highly concentrated, saline solution of water on the other side, In addition to salt particles, this process will remove a select number of drinking water contaminants depending upon the physical size of the contaminances. For the reason, reverse osmosis had been touted as an effective drinking water purification method.
Porn and Cons:
Reverse osmosis is a valuable water purification process when mineral – free water is the desired end product. Most mineral constituents of water are physically large than water molecules. Thus, they are trapped by the semi-permeable membrane and removed from drinking water when filtered through a reverse osmosis system. Such minerals include salt, lead, manganese, iron, and calcium. Reverse osmosis will also remove some chemical components of drinking water, including the dangerous municipal additive fluoride.
Although reverse osmosis does extract several contaminants from drinking water, its removal capabilities are not ideally suited to the challenges of the municipally treated water that the overwhelming majority of people receive. Municipal water contains such contaminants as chlorine and volatile organic chemical (VOCs). Because these contaminants are physically smaller in size than water, the semi-permeable membrane cannot prohibit them from passing through with the water. Thus, they remain in drinking water.
Reverse osmosis, also, by removing alkaline mineral constituents of water, produces acidic water Acidic water can be dangerous to the body system, causing calcium and other essential minerals to be stripped from bones and teeth in order to neutralize its acidity. Trace elements of minerals were intended to be in water, their removal leaves tasteless, unhealthy drinking water.
Reverse osmosis, although it is less wasteful than distillation, is still an incredibly inefficient process. On average, the reverse osmosis process wastes three gallons of water for every one gallon of purified water it produces.

Violet 5 plate
The Chanson Violet 5-plate countertop ionizer is our economical model. Experience all the benefits of owning a water
ionizer without all of the bells and whistles and enjoy the reduced price point. The Violet offers many of the same basic
features and functions of our higher end water ionizers, but because it has fewer ionization plates, the water flow rate
is slightly reduced.
5 Electrode Plates Highest level of conductivity and durability The five (5) solid titanium plates on the Chanson Violet
water ionizer are nano-plated with platinum and have been independently lab tested at 99.998% pure titanium! The
cutting edge design and proven durability of electro-plated platinum ensures you get the best ORP alteration and functional
durability throughout the life of the ionizer.
The Violet Makes Some of the Highest and Lowest pH Levels of Any Ionizer Ranges: pH = 3.0 - 10.
(at full flow with no chemical alternation - can be made stronger by reducing water flow)
Note: pH and ORP always depend on source water and vary as with any brand.
Onboard Chemical-Free Filter PJ-6000
Easy to Change.
The Chanson ionizer contains a chemical-free, five micron silver-impregnanted coconut shell carbon block filter
which addresses some basic chemical contaminants like chlorine and chloramines and helps protect the machine
*same filter using on ALL Chanson water ionizers.
Features of Chanson
1.) pH Consistency Chanson water ionizers adjust the electrolysis amperage automatically to keep alkaline
2.) Remaining Filter Life Notification The remaining water filter life will be auto-adjusted according to your
water quality. The LCD screen displays the remaining filter life, reminding you to change your filter when
3.) Self-Clean Function The Chanson ionizer will automatically set its cleaning cycles based on the mineral
content ofyour water. Cleaning always occurs after you turn the machine off allows the machine to perform
maintenance without ever interrupting your water usage. The Miracle will automatically go into a flushing
cycle each time you turn on your ionizer. This is a wonderful feature for an under sink ionizer because it
allows any standing water in the line to be flushed out before you drink.

Ozone (10028-15-6) has been used since 1903 for the treatment of drinking water. This use, which was developed in Europe,is the largest application for ozone and, as of 1980,
there were more than 1100 such water – treatment installations, The treatment of swimming-pool Water also was developed in Europe during the 1950 s (see Water,treatment of swimming pools). The Second largest application for ozone is for the treatment of odors from industrial processes and municipal wastewater treatment plants. Ozone also is used on a large scale for the treatment of municipal secondary effluents
(see Water, municipal water treattment). Industrial high quality water supplies also are treated
with ozone (see Water, industrial water treatment).The manufacture of specific chemical products and pharmaceutical intermediates involves the use of ozone for carbon-double-bond
oxidations. Ozone is used to bleach inorganic products such as clays. Ozone is the second most powerful oxidant ; exceeded in its oxidation potential only by fluorine. It also is a sterilant for microorganisms.
The pungent odor of ozone was first reported by Van Mauren in 1785 in the viclnity
of an electrical discharge.The newly mown hay odor, which is characteristic of low concentrations of ozone, is detectable in air by most people at ca 0.01 ppm.In 1840, it was reported that the odor resulted from the presence of a previously unes-tablished compound
whose structure was confirmed in 1872 as a triatomic allotrope of oxygen (1).
