Water Softeners And Our Planet
The Earth is our home. Over 70% of it covered with water, but less than 3% of that water is drinkable fresh water. The percentage that humans can easily access is even less when you take into account the fact that most of the Earth’s fresh water is located in glaciers and in the polar ice caps. The real amount of “accessible” drinking water is closer to 3/10 of 1 percent, a relatively minuscule drop in the Earth’s water bucket.
There are only three types of freshwater sources: still sources like ponds, lakes, and wetlands; running sources, like rivers and streams; and groundwater aquifers that, by their nature, are hidden from view. Each has suffered dearly over the years from over use and pollution. Even today, more than four decades after the Federal Clean Water Act, groundwater sources in particular are under assault from controversial practices like hydraulic fracturing (or fracking), and other forms of gas/oil exploration. These practices are increasingly used and risk contaminating groundwater stores on a large scale with a variety of assorted chemicals. What chemicals are used by the petroleum companies, in many cases, are not required to be released to the public.
Some see the solution in Seawater Desalination, but it’s an expensive process that requires an enormous amount of energy, using current technology, to produce potable water. We weren’t willing to wait for the state of the art to improve, so we decided to take action ourselves.
At our core, Puroserve is committed to the idea that our products are critical tools in the current shift away from wasteful water treatment practices and toward greener, more eco-friendly residential water treatment. As the human population continues to climb, the demand for better, smarter approaches to managing our finite freshwater resources will only grow. Here at Puroserve, we’re taking the first steps down the road towards a better a future. Why don’t you join us?
