  • Chlorine and THM Removal – Protects against harmful chlorine and THM’s (trihalomethanes)
  • Chemical Removal - includes VOC’s removal, herbicide removal, pesticide removal, MBTE removal (gasoline byproduct) and more
  • Lead and Heavy Metal Removal – includes lead removal, mercury removal, cadmium removal, arsenic removal and more
  • Fluoride Removal
  • Cryptosporidium and Giardia removal – includes parasite and cyst removal
  • Bacteria Removal – includes E-coli removal, coliform removal, salmonella removal, and more
  • Hardness and Scale removal – helps to pH balance and soften the water
  • Dirt Removal - includes rust removal, sediment removal and turbidity reduction
  • Undesirable taste and odor removal – includes sulfur removal (hydrogen sulfide – sulfur bacteria)

SupremeWaterFilters.com also tailor-makes units for those with special needs such as nitrate removal, excessive hardness removal (that causes high concentrations of scaling), sodium removal and more.

The combinations of technologies used in our systems are the most comprehensive for removal of the broadest spectrum of contaminants:

Granular Activated Carbon: proven to be an excellent media for the filtration of water borne chemicals such as chlorine, trihalomethanes, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds). When carbon is “activated", heated to 1000+ degrees, its pores expand and enable it to “trap" a host of undesirable substances and remove them from the water.

KDF® (copper / zinc): proven effective in removing chlorine and reducing lead and other heavy metals. And, by initially removing chlorine from the water, the KDF® component extends the removal capacity of granular activated carbon.

Extruded Carbon Bloc and Sub-Micron Filtration: filters in a radial flow, outside to inside direction, insuring low pressure drops. This “block technology" does not allow water to channel or bypass due to the extreme uniformity of its extruded activated carbon core. Carbon Block is also proven to be an excellent media for the filtration of water borne chemicals, such as chlorine, trihalomethanes, cysts (cryptosporidium and giardia), VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and other carcinogenic substances. Both granular and block forms of carbon also sweeten the water’s taste and improves its clarity.

Ceramic Filtration: The heart of every Doulton® filtration cartridge is its exclusive Sterasyl element that utilizes the natural properties of highly specialized diatomaceous earth (Kieselguhr), which is extruded and fired into a hollow porous matrix that has a sub-micro pore of 0.5, designed to remove waterborne bacteria. Impurities unable to penetrate through the microscopic channels of the ceramic matrix, such as bacteria, cryptosporidium and other micro organisms, are simply trapped on or near the surface of the ceramic element.

Natural Volcanic Enhancement Media: A combination of the following elements working together to filter the water the way it is done in a natural environment: SPG Volcanic Sand, Ceramic High Gauss Magnets (Gauss - measurement of magnetic intensity), Tenko-Seki Magnetite, Bakuhan® Stone, Taicho® Stone, and Quartz. Enhanced Water increases cellular absorption through magnetization, far-infrared and magnetic fields, mineralization including soluble silica and magnesium, and balances water to a naturally stable alkaline pH level.

Neodymium Rare Earth Magnets: Portable, Aquatomic® Water Magnets are the latest innovation for cellular water absorption. Attached to an elastic strap that wraps around any water container, these Water Magnets, with state-of-the-art technology, reduce the surface tension of water and all other liquids, making them “wetter" and more usable by every cell in your body. This de-clustering process allows the body to hydrate up to 40% faster and with less liquid, relieving symptoms of dehydration that may include tiredness, headaches, and stiff joints.

Contaminants in Water

Presumably your drinking water comes from a municipal system, a shallow dug well, or a deep, drilled well. Each type of water supply is more or less vulnerable to different kinds of pollutants, because surface water (rivers, lakes, reservoirs), groundwater (underground aquifers), and treated water each are exposed to environmental contaminants in different ways. Obviously, the hydro geological characteristics of the area you live in, and localized activities and sites that create pollution, such as factories, agricultural spraying, or a landfill, will potentially impact your water quality. And some impurities, such as lead and other metals, can be introduced by the piping that delivers the water to your tap.

Reliable and inexpensive tests are available to identify the biological and chemical contaminants that may be in your water. Here's what you may find.

Biological Impurities: Bacteria, Viruses, and Parasites.

Microorganisms originating from human and animal feces, or other sources, can cause waterborne diseases. Approximately 4,000 cases of waterborne illness are reported each year in the U.S. Additionally, many of the minor illnesses and gastrointestinal disorders that go unreported can be traced to organisms found in water supplies.

Biological impurities have largely been eliminated in municipal water systems with chlorine treatment. However, such treated water can still become biologically contaminated. Residual chlorine throughout the system may not be adequate, and therefore microorganisms can grow in stagnant water sitting in storage facilities or at the ends of pipes. Water from private wells and small public systems is more vulnerable to biological contamination. These systems generally use untreated groundwater supplies, which could be polluted due to septic tank leakage or poor construction.

Chlorine and THM’s

Chlorine is part of the solution and part of the problem. In 1974 it was discovered that VOCs known as trihalomethanes (THMs) are formed when the chlorine added to water to kill bacteria and viruses reacts with other organic substances in the water. Chlorinated water with THM’s has been linked to cancer, high blood pressure, and anemia.

Toxic Metals or Heavy Metals

The presence of toxic metals in drinking water is one of the greatest threats to human health. The major culprits include lead, arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and silver. Maximum limits for each of these metals are established by the EPA's Drinking Water Regulations.

Toxic Organic Chemicals

The most pressing and widespread water contamination problem results from the organic chemicals (those containing carbon) created by industry. The American Chemical Society lists more than four million distinct chemical compounds, most of which are synthetic (man-made) organic chemicals, and industry creates new ones every week. Production of these chemicals exceeds a billion pounds per year. Synthetic organic chemicals have been detected in many water supplies throughout the country. They get into the groundwater from improper disposal of industrial waste (including discharge into waterways), poorly designed and sited industrial lagoons, wastewater discharge from sewage treatment plants, unlined landfills, and chemical spills.

Studies since the mid-1970s have linked organic chemicals in drinking water to specific adverse health effects. However, only a fraction of these compounds have been tested for such effects. Well over three-quarters of the substances identified by the EPA as priority pollutants are synthetic organic chemicals.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

Volatile organic compounds are very lightweight organic chemicals that easily evaporate into the air. VOCs are the most prevalent chemicals found in drinking water, and they comprise a large proportion of the substances regulated by the EPA as priority pollutants causing high cancer risks.

Pesticides and Herbicides

The increased use of pesticides and herbicides (the word “cide" means a thing that kills) in American agriculture since World War II has had a profound effect on water quality. Rain and irrigation carry these deadly chemicals into groundwater, as well as into surface waters. These are poisonous, plain and simple.

Fluoride

Fluoridation is not about "children's teeth". Rather, it is about industry ridding itself of crude hazardous waste products, silicofluorides, for a profit. Silicofluorides are 85 times more toxic than naturally-occurring calcium fluoride. Fluoride is more toxic than lead and like lead in minute doses, accumulates in and can be damaging to brain/mind development of children, producing abnormal behavior in animals and reducing IQ in humans, especially in conjunction with deficiencies of key nutrients such as calcium, iodine and vitamins. It can also contribute to many disease processes. Because it is almost as toxic as arsenic, fluoride's ability to play havoc in the human body should surprise no one.

Asbestos

Asbestos exists in water as microscopic suspended fibers. Its primary source is asbestos-cement pipe, which was commonly used after World War II for city water systems. It has been estimated that some 200,000 miles of this pipe are currently in use delivering drinking water. Because pipes wear as water courses through them, asbestos shows up with increasing frequency in municipal water supplies. It has been linked to gastrointestinal cancer.

Organic Impurities: Tastes, and Odors

If water has a disagreeable taste or odor, the likely cause is one or more organic substances, ranging from decaying vegetation to algae to organic chemicals (organic chemicals are compounds containing carbon.)

Inorganic Impurities: Dirt and Sediment, or Turbidity

Most water contains suspended particles of fine sand, clay, silt, and precipitated salts. This cloudiness or muddiness is called turbidity. Turbidity is unsightly, and it can be a source of food and lodging for bacteria. Turbidity can also interfere with effective disinfection and purification of water.

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)

Total dissolved solids consist of rock and numerous other compounds from the earth. The significance of TDS in water is a point of controversy among water purveyors, but here are some facts about the consequences of higher levels of TDS:

  • High TDS results in undesirable taste, which can be salty, bitter, or metallic.
  • Certain mineral salts may pose health hazards. The most problematic are nitrates, sodium, barium, copper sulfates, and fluoride.
  • High TDS interferes with the taste of foods and beverages.
  • High TDS makes ice cubes cloudy, softer, and faster melting.
  • High TDS causes scaling on showers, tubs, sinks, and inside pipes and water heaters.

Our bodies consist of over 70% water and we need to replenish this supply daily in order to introduce bodily nutrients into our systems, remove wastes that the body does not need, facilitate cellular communication and literally to carry on all of our bodily activities that sustain our lives. It is therefore critical that we drink water that has the best quality and integrity to “feed our lives and our dreams".

Since water is capable of dissolving or suspending a tremendous variety of materials, there is simply no way to get "pure" water (H2O and nothing but H2O) out of your faucet. All water, outside of a research laboratory, will have some other stuff in it. Even distilled water you purchase in plastic bottles at the store will eventually have some carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air dissolved in it forming a weak acid (carbonic acid), and worse, there will probably be some dissolved plastic molecules in it as well.

Are all water contaminants bad for our health? Certainly not. Many of the naturally occurring compounds in water are benign or even good for our health. Some minerals, like calcium and magnesium are essential to human health, and some reports indicate that drinking water can provide a dietary source for these minerals. The short synopsis below (only the most common or dangerous examples in each group are listed here, since there is a nearly infinite number of possible contaminants), focuses on the undesirable or dangerous water contaminants. The environmental Protection Agency has established Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs) for some of the most common and/or potentially dangerous of the identified water pollutants.
