OUR VALUE PROPOSITION
WE RETHINK WATER
In 2012, at least 74 million Americans in thousands of communities across 42 states drank tap water polluted with “total chromium,” including hexavalent and other forms of the metal. Increasing concentrations of “THMs” and Personal Hygiene Products are increasingly causing human sickness leading to disease as reported by a 2013 report from EWG, a consultant group to the EPA and to Departments of Public Health across the country. About twenty million Americans suffered a water-related illness last year; some 54,000 per day. And that number is just from reported cases. CDC estimates the true numbers are far higher, perhaps three times higher. Two hundred eighty million drank water with byproducts of chlorine in the water. This is about 83% of the country!
Our home products are designed to improve public health by improving your water at the tap. So you can drink it again.
The company holds the highest standards for purifying all drinking water. Very small trace concentrations of PPCPs (pharmaceuticals & personal care products), EDCs (Endocrine disrupting compounds) and THMs (halogenated methanes) are present in much of the country’s drinking water.
Water districts are charged to comply with NSF and EPA standards 56 and 60 for potability. These standards try to ensure that biologically active agents (pathogens) are eliminated in drinking water. They are, however, not able to eliminate, much less control, three other components of potable water: 1] neurotoxicity, 2] immune response impact and 3] endocrine response impact. Degradation of our environment has led to alarming concentrations of these components which inevitably find their way into drinking water.
The TSWS solution is to reduce many of these well below existing “safe” levels.
EPA now regards water “safe to drink” as water that is “acceptable risk”, since they are unable to eliminate these other compounds from the treated water that enters your home. Working with our local water utilities can help improve health.
