Environmental Protection

For Your Home, Office

And Healthcare Facility




It is important to understand that when chlorine interacts with naturally occurring microscopic organic matter found in your water, disinfection byproducts (DBPs) form.


And these DBPs are far more toxic than the chlorine itself. In fact, DBPs are responsible for the vast majority of the toxic effects of chlorinated water… toxic effects that can potentially lead to…


    Increased cancer, asthma, and skin irritation risks

   Respiratory irritation and fatigue

   Weakening of your immune system


Our strong recommendation to help protect you and your family from these potential water-spawned risks is to install high-quality water filters system.



How Great is Your Exposure to Toxic Tap Water?


When it comes to completely protecting your entire home from unsafe, unfiltered water, a larger challenge presents itself.


Why is that?


Well, most people have more than one shower and more than one sink in their home. US government census data from 2007 shows that 95% of new single-family homes have 2 or more full bathrooms. 28% have 3 or more.


And as far as occupied homes in the US, around 50% of them already have 2 or more full bathrooms.


So, the chances are high, you have more than one shower and certainly more than one faucet that can expose you to chlorine and the associated DBPs.


Plus, what about your dishwasher, your washing machine, and your bathtubs? Some people prefer soaking in a hot, soothing tub instead of showering.

The Hidden Dangers of Taking Long Hot Baths


Most folks equate a long hot bath to a very cleansing and relaxing experience.


Few people rarely give it a second thought about any potential dangers from the chlorine in their bath water… but the dangers are there.


Very similar to your shower, there are inherent health risks when bathing in hot chlorinated water.


A hot, soothing bath…


    Opens your skin pores and allows easier absorption of chlorine and other contaminants directly into your system…

    Creates chemical steam which you inhale and can contain up to 20 times the chlorine levels of tap water…

    Breaks down your skin’s natural moisture barrier, resulting in drier skin…


So, just like the hidden dangers associated with taking a shower in unfiltered water, the same holds true when taking a lengthy hot bath. The only real difference is that showering may be more hazardous because it takes place in a more enclosed area.


But the health risks in your home from unfiltered water don’t stop here.

How Invisible Chemical Vapors and Gases Could Be Potentially Harmful


One of the most significant risks from unfiltered water is something you cannot see or even feel… chlorine vapors and chloroform gas.


The FDA and other US government agencies report that most homes in the US have measurable levels of chloroform gas.


You might wonder how this potentially harmful gas winds up in your home. If you obtain your water from a municipal water supply, it has chlorine added. And unless you have a whole house water filter, chlorine will vaporize from every toilet bowl in your home and also every time you wash your clothes, dishes or take a shower or bath.


Chloroform gas, chlorine vapors, and the associated DBPs may increase your risk of asthma, airway inflammation, and respiratory allergies. Chloroform gas alone can cause dizziness, nausea, and general fatigue.


Who wants to breathe any of these nasty vapors in their home? I certainly don’t.



As mentioned above, trying to solve this problem inside your home goes beyond installing filters on your shower and kitchen faucet.


Here are typical sources that can release chlorine vapors into your indoor environment and contribute to poor air quality…


    Dishwashers – Most people wash their dishes using hot water, and many even use the ‘hot’ dry cycle as well. This generates steam that can easily be released into the air you breathe.

    Washing Machines – Using cold water to wash your clothes certainly helps minimize vapor release. But washing your clothes in chlorinated water can embed the chemical into the clothes you wear, potentially leading to rashes and other irritations.

    Toilets – The flushing action of a toilet potentially releases chlorine vapors into your indoor environment. Regardless of the flushing, unfiltered water just sitting in the bowl has the potential to release chemical vapors.


The bottom line – there are multiple unfiltered water sources and common appliances within your home that can expose you to dangerous chlorine vapors, chloroform gas, and disinfection byproducts (DBPs).


Even though it’s a great place to start, you might want to consider going beyond simply filtering your tap water in your shower and at your kitchen faucet.


So, what can you do to ensure your entire home is protected? Well, you could purchase individual filtration systems for all your faucets, showers, bathtubs, and appliances…

Why Installing Filters on All Your Water Sources May Not Be Practical


Here’s a breakdown of the estimated costs to obtain individual filtration systems within your home to cover all unfiltered sources. I think you’ll quickly see how impractical this is, and why a better solution is needed if you want to protect your entire home…


    Sink faucets – Need at least 3 filtration systems to cover your kitchen and 2 other bathroom sinks. (Most US homes have at least 2 bathrooms)  Estimated cost: $200 each x 3 = $600

    Showers – Estimate you’ll need at least 2 of these for the 2+ bathrooms in the typical home. Estimated cost: $100 each x 2 = $200

    Bathtubs – Same estimate as the number of showers in the average US home. Estimated cost: $50 each x 2 = $100

    Refrigerator ice-maker and water dispenser – Typically you’ll find on average 1 refrigerator per home. However, some folks do have a second unit in the garage or elsewhere. Estimated cost: $50 each x 1 = $50

    Dishwasher and Washing Machine – One of each of these is typical for most US homes. Estimated cost: $150 each x 2 = $300


When you add all of these sources of unfiltered water up, the estimated total comes to $1,250. And this doesn't solve all of the potential issues… like the chlorine vapors that might escape into the air from your toilets… and the sheer amount of labor required to install and maintain individual filters. Each filter will require periodic replacement of its cartridges.


If you want to take that next step and protect your entire house, I think you see why I don’t recommend this individual approach as a practical solution.


Some folks might decide to simply not use their second bathroom for washing, showering, or bathing. But based on 2008 US census data, close to 3 people live in the average household.   Pretty difficult to avoid using that second bathroom… wouldn’t you agree?


So, what is a practical solution for a whole house filtration system?

How to Practically Protect Your Entire Home


You basically have two options, one is a whole house water filter and the other is to ventilate your home.


If you get your water from a municipal water supply and don’t have a whole house filter t really is important to you and your family’s health to open up window on opposing sides of your home so you get cross ventilation. Get the windows open for 5-10 minutes a day to remove these gases


Alternatively you could use a whole house filtration system. The best one I could find for you and your family is called the Pure & Clear Whole House System.


If you really want to filter your entire house from chlorine, DBPs, and other contaminants, this is the system for you.





















































First of all, here is the extraordinary 3-stage filtration process this system uses… one of its strongest components…


3-stage filtration process


But how do you know this filtration system really works and is worth its weight in gold?


When selecting solutions to offer on my site, there’s one area I never compromise on… and that’s quality and proof of performance.


With the Pure & Clear Whole House System, I believe the quality of craftsmanship and the proof of performance are second to none...

Finally – A Whole House System with Certified Performance

UL Classified Water Quality Mark


Not many of the whole house water filtration systems my team looked at even came close to the level of certification earned by the Pure & Clear Whole House System.


By being tested and certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for chemical reduction of chlorine, the manufacturer of the Pure & Clear Whole House System delivered solid proof of its extraordinary performance.


In fact, here’s an excerpt of the actual test results. Now how many filtration manufacturers would bother (or risk) showing this data?  Not many, I venture.
