Water Facts

Hard Water Spotting on dishes and glassware; scale on inside of water heater, pipes and water-using appliances; soap curd and bathtub ring; clothes look gray and dingy. Calcium and magnesium in water, measuring 3.5 gpg or more. Water Softener
(Max. Hardness 100 gpg)
(Max. Clear Water Iron 1.5 gpg)
Clear Water Iron (Ferrous) Yellow, brown or rusty stains on plumbing fixtures, water-using appliances and fabrics; metallic taste in foods and beverages; water is clear when drawn from the faucet but oxidizes when exposed to air, then changes color ranging from yellow to brown. Iron in the water measuring 0.3 ppm or more. 0.3 - 1.5 PPM Water Softener
1.5 - 7.5 PPM Iron Guard Water Softener
1.5 - 30 PPM Chemical Free Iron Filter (Note 1)
Red Water
Iron (Ferric)
Same symptoms as Clear Water Iron but iron has already oxidized and has a yellow to rust color when drawn from the faucet. Iron in the water measuring 0.3 PPM or more. 0.3 - 30 PPM Chemical Free Iron Filter (Note 1)
0.3 - 10 PPM Iron & Sulphur Filter
Bacterial Iron Same symptoms as Clear & Red Water Iron but can have clumps or balls that may foul plumbing lines and other water-using appliances; particularly noticeable as a yellow to reddish slime in toilet flush tanks. Iron bacteria are a group of bacteria which thrive in iron-bearing water, utilizing iron as an energy source. This bacteria is not a health hazard. Aquacore Ultrafiltration (Note1)
Manganese Blackish stain on fixtures and laundry; manganese content above 0.05 PPM causes stains. Interaction of carbon dioxide or organic matter with manganese-bearing soils. Usually found in combination with iron. .05-1.0 PPM Chemical Free M Iron Filter (Note1)
1.0 - 2.0 PPM Neutralizing Filter followed by Iron & Sulphur Filter (Note 2)
Acid Water Blue/green or rusty stains and corrosion of plumbing fixtures and other water-using appliances; pitting of porcelain and enamel fixtures and dishes. Pin holes in copper plumbing lines. Generally associated with water with a pH value of less than the neutral 7.0. pH 6.0 - 6.9 Neutralizing Filter
pH 4.0 - 6.9 Chemical Feed Pump feeding soda ash
Consult our Customer Service Dept.
Aggressive / Corrosive Water Same symptoms as Acid Water but pH is 7.0 or higher. Alkalinity and carbon dioxide or high dissolved oxygen in water. Electrolysis - two dissimilar metals in plumbing lines. Consult our Customer Service Dept.
Hydrogen Sulfide Rotten egg taste and/or odor. Turns copper plumbing lines black. Very corrosive. Hydrogen sulfide is a dissolved gas found in some water supplies 0.1 - 3.0 PPM Chemical Free Iron Filter or Iron & Sulphur Filter
3.0 - 15 PPM Chemical Feed Pump feeding chlorine followed by a Multimedia Filter. (Note 3)
Marshy, metallic or chlorine taste and/or odors Objectionable tastes and/or odors other than hydrogen sulfide. Dissolved minerals or gases; organic contamination or chlorination. Activated Carbon Filter for whole house water supply or Taste & Odor Cartridge Filter for individual faucets.
Turbidity (Sand/Sediment) Foreign particles, dirty or cloudy water Tiny suspended particles that are the result of water main scale or silt. Private wells often contain sand or clay. Multimedia Filter for whole house water supply or a Sediment Cartridge Filter for individual faucets.
Tannins Yellow or brown tint or cast in water supply; tannins measuring 0.5 PPM or higher may cause staining and/or interference with various water treatment processes.
Result of decaying vegetative matter Organic Color Removal Filter

Alkaline water is produced through electrolysis, a process that separates the acid from the alkaline minerals. When consumed, alkaline water helps to neutralize and flush out acid wastes that have accumulated as a result of an unhealthy diet, carbonated beverages, stress, and pollution.

As a result of the electrolysis process, ASL Water will have a negative oxygen reduction potential, or an affinity for the free radicals that attack cell tissue. Imagine not having to rely solely on supplemental antioxidants, since your ASL Water will contain an abundant amount.

The hexagonal molecular structure resulting from electrolysis is what makes ASL Water wetter than tap or bottled water. These smaller "hexagons" of water molecules are half as large as the molecular chains that come out of the faucet, and permeate cellular membranes quicker so that ASL Water is more hydrating and quicker to refresh after strenuous exercise

Using alkaline water to reconstitute your juices from concentrates will result in a sweeter taste with less bite because the acids will be neutralized. The same will hold true for coffee and teas made from ASL Water. Vegetables will retain a natural texture and color, rice and rolled oats will be fluffier after being boiled in water from your ASL Water Purifier/Ionizer.
