Home Drinking Water Treatment
Reverse osmosis is similar to filtration but is far more complex. The Kinetico K5 Drinking Water Station uses water pressure and flux, as well as solute concentration, to remove unwanted particles from water.

The Kinetico K5 significantly reduces more contaminants than any other drinking water treatment unit. The K5 is certified by WQA to NSF/ANSI Standard 58 for PFOS/PFOA removal.

What’s in Your Water?
With so many options available, how can you decide whether or not to install a water treatment system, or choose which one is the best fit for your home? In order to understand what kind of water treatment system will work for you, you first need to evaluate the unique needs of your residential water. An in-depth water test will reveal contaminants in your water and will give you the exact composition of your water. This way, you will have the information that you need to make a decision regarding what products are the best fit for your home. Not all water is created equal, so take the time to make the right choice.
Once your water has been tested, you can start considering your options. Depending on the results of your water test, there are several different options that you can choose to protect your home’s water supply. Click here for your FREE Water Test.
Hard water is a common issue for residential water. Caused by mineral deposits in the water, hard water can produce dry skin and hair as well as creating buildup in pipes and appliances.
Red-orange staining in sinks or tubs is often caused by too much iron in residential water. The presence of iron can also create an unpleasant metallic taste.
Sulfur, or the “rotten egg smell,” can be an unpleasant side effect of hydrogen sulfide gas in residential water. Aside from the smell, sulfur can cause damage to pipes.
The strong, chemical taste and smell of chlorine in drinking water can be off-putting, and it can cause dry skin and hair.
The musty “dirt” smell that is sometimes present in drinking water can be caused by common bacteria or even algae blooms.
Water with low pH levels is often the cause of the blue-green stains that appear around water faucets and in tubs and toilets.
The presence of lead in drinking water is a serious problem since high levels of lead are dangerous and can be deadly, especially for pets and children.
Cloudy, milky-looking water could be caused by the presence of suspended solids or by hard water. Suspended solids can come from undesirable sources like runoff from storms or construction sites.
Why do you need a water treatment system in your home?
There’s no way to tell what is lurking in your water, even if you have the benefit of being tapped into treated city water. There is always a risk that your water supply is exposed to potential contamination. Common problems like hard water, cloudy water, or staining can affect your home and your health. Investing in a home water treatment system is the only way to ensure that your water is completely safe for consumption. A water test can reveal which water treatment system will be most effective in your home.
