Frequently Asked Questions

How does a R.O. System work?
   
 
Reverse Osmosis is the most convenient and effective method of water filtration. It filters water by squeezing water through a semi-permeable membrane, which is rated at 0.0001 micron (equals to 0.00000004 inch!). This is the technology used to make bottled water.
   
Is Reverse Osmosis as Good as bottled water?
 
 
Just as good if not better. We use the same technology, reverse osmosis (RO), as other major bottling plants use to produce bottled water. Your drinking water will have a great taste with a touch of minerals. The five-stage system is the most stable and complete RO process.
   
What is a POU System?
 
 
Point-Of-Use (POU) water filtration products are systems designed to treat only the water coming from the tap to which it is connected. We have a number of point-of-use drinking water systems to choose from. We also carry bottle-less water dispensers.
   
What about maintenance?
 
 
We provide planned maintenance every 6 months or as needed for the RO systems, which consists of: filter changes, sanitizing the system, and TDS analysis.
   
What is hard water?
 
 
Hard water is caused by excessive levels of calcium and/or magnesium dissolved in water. Hardness is based on the concentration of calcium and/or magnesium as measured in grains per gallon (gpg). Hard water can produce a rock-like scale that builds up in pipes, dishwashers, water heaters, ice machines, and other appliances. Calcium and magnesium are the primary hard water minerals. Hard water reduces the ability of soaps to clean and produce suds, leaving a dingy gray residue on clothes, and spots on dishes.
   
How is water softened?
 
 
Water is softened or conditioned by replacing hard ions such as magnesium and calcium with softer sodium or potassium ions. Water softeners must be regenerated regularly with a brine solution, renewing their ability to remove hardness from water. The hard water is passed through a tank containing resin beads coated with sodium ions or potassium ions. The calcium and magnesium ions are exchanged for the sodium ions, thus conditioning the water. When the beads have trapped all the hardness they can hold, the unit is regenerated with salt brine to replace the hardness ions with sodium ions. The unit is then ready to condition water again.
   
How often do I have to replace the salt in a softener system?
 
  Salt needs to be replaced at least every three months, harder water may need it more frequently.
   
How much water should you consume?
 
 
Most adults need eight to twelve 8-ounce glasses of water or fluids daily, but needs vary by activity level, health circumstances (including pregnancy) and even by age. For example, a 60-pound child would need a minimum of at least 30 ounces of water a day, or about three to four glasses. And people may need more water as they age, since thirst signals may become dull, activity levels decline and prescription drugs may dehydrate their bodies further.
   
Is financing available?
 
  Yes - We accept all major credit cards. You may also rent or purchase our Reverse Osmosis Systems.
   
Are services available in my area?
 
  Possibly! We service the Lubbock Metroplex and Midland / Odessa Area. We also are available in the areas of West Texas between Midland and Amarillo. Give us a call if you are live outside these areas.
