ABOUT OUR DRINKING WATER
Bottled water has become a multi-billion dollar business. It is now the
fastest growing segment of the entire
beverage industry and the most profitable of all beverages. Millions
and millions of dollars are spent each week
on advertising campaigns to give consumers the perception that bottled
water comes from some pristine
mountain spring or magical underground aquifer.
The truth is that bottled water is often little more than
tap water in a bottle.
The Federal regulations that govern bottled water
only apply if it is transported across state lines, and then
only require it to be "as good as" tap water. Most bottled water is
bottled and sold within the same state to avoid regulations. There are
no assurances or requirements that bottled water is of any higher
quality than tap water.
In March of 1999 the Natural Resources Defense
Council (NRDC) released a report called "Bottled Water:
Pure Drink or Pure Hype?" NRDC's report points out that as much as 40%
of all bottled water comes from
a city water system just like tap water. The report also focuses on the
fact that 60 to 70% of all bottled water
is exempt from FDA's bottled water standards because it is bottled and
sold within the same state.
Unless the water is transported across state lines, there are no
Federal regulations that govern its quality.
According to the NRDC:"bottled water companies have used this loophole
to avoid complying with basic health standards such as those that apply
to municipally treated tap water." Also, all carbonated or sparkling
waters are completely exempt from FDA guidelines that set specific
According to the NRDC study: "even when bottled
waters are covered by FDA's specific bottled water
standards those rules are weaker in many ways than EPA rules that apply
to big city tap water." For instance,
if we compare EPA regulations for tap water to FDA's bottled water
* City tap water can have no confirmed E.coli or
fecal coliform bacteria. FDA bottled water rules include no such
prohibition (a certain amount of any type of coliform bacteria is
allowed in bottled water).
* City tap water from surface water must be
filtered and disinfected. In contrast there are no federal filtration
or disinfectant requirements for bottled water.
* Most cities using surface water have had to test
for Cryptosporidium or Giardia two common water pathogens
that can cause diarrhea and other intestinal problems yet bottled water
companies do not have to do this.
* City tap water must meet standards for certain
important toxic or cancer-causing chemicals such as phthalate
(a chemical that can leach from plastic including plastic bottles);
some in the industry persuaded FDA
to exempt bottled water from the regulations regarding these chemicals.
* City water systems must issue annual "right to
know" reports telling consumers what is in their water. Bottlers
successfully killed a "right to know" requirement for bottled water.
The Natural Resources Defense Council report
concluded: "While much tap water is indeed risky having
compared available data we conclude that there is no assurance that
bottled water is any safer than tap water."
The reality of bottled water is that people pay from
$1 to $4 a gallon for the perception of higher quality
when in fact the quality of bottled water is at best "unknown"!
A humorous, but insightful quote, from a national
"Throughout the years man has come up with many ways to measure things.
Noah used cubits to measure the Arc. We use carats to measure
gemstones. We use lbs.
to measure our weight. We use inches, feet and yards to measure
distance. And to measure
the intelligence of consumers... they put water in plastic bottles...
to see who would buy it."
Point-of-Use water treatment with a quality in home
water filtration system is by far the most economical the most
convenient and the most effective way of producing healthy, great
tasting water. Filtering out the chlorine lead
and other contaminants with a quality home water filtration system at
the point of use just prior to consumption
is the only way to know for sure about the quality of your water.

Aquasana is Latin for "water to heal" and our
products were designed with this concept in mind.
Years of research and development forged the results that Aquasana
Sun Water Systems has designed and produced quality
water filtration products, under private label,
for over 50 U.S. & International companies and is considered an
industry leader in ultra-filtration products.
Unlike most other water filtration products,
Aquasana products were not designed to meet minimum government
or industry standards that allow "Trace Levels" of toxic chemicals in
tap water and bottled water.
We believe (and science has proven) that there are no safe levels for
toxic synthetic chemicals in our water.
While it is permitted and accepted that bottled water and tap water
commonly contain traces of many unhealthy contaminants Aquasana was
designed to produce naturally healthy, great tasting water.
We believe that the healthiest water is water as it
existed before the influences of modern man water free from
chemical contaminants and balanced with traces of the Earth's natural
minerals. Aquasana systems filter
out chlorine, lead, VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and cysts while
leaving in the natural trace minerals.
It's like having natural spring water on tap in your home for only
9¢ a gallon!
Aquasana provides water
that is higher in quality than any bottled water for only 9 cents per

Stage 1 removes chlorine and enhances pH balance with a natural copper/
zinc mineral media called KDF-55D.
The second filtration stage uses a carbonized coconut shell media for
the removal of synthetic chemicals
and volatile organic chemicals (VOC) that vaporize and can be inhaled
or absorbed through the skin,
potentially causing adverse health and cosmetic effects.
Anyone who has ever swum in a chlorinated pool knows
how chlorine robs moisture from skin and hair.
What most do not realize is that typically there is as much, or more
chlorine in your tap water as there
is in most swimming pools. Chlorine strips the
natural protective oils from skin and hair, causing excess dryness.
Without the harsh influences of chlorine you'll notice significant
cosmetic benefits... softer skin & hair in a week!
Also by removing chlorine and other chemicals found in tap water, you
eliminate health risks related to inhalation
and skin absorption of these chemicals, now known to be a significant
source of exposure to harmful VOCs.
Your shower water will feel better, and be better
