In a few weeks, the first day of summer will officially be here! It’s time for sipping ice-cold drinks by the pool.
Instead of paying big money for an expensive smoothie or frapp at your local café, consider making your own. Here’s an easy-to-make recipe for a Chocolate Banana Smoothie that is sure to cool you down and sweeten your day.
From time to time, we’re asked the question, “Does using a water softener have an adverse effect on household septic tanks?”
Since one quarter of all homes in the U.S. have a septic system and we know that hard water affects nearly 85 percent of homes in the country (many of those homes have or need a water softener), that’s a very valid question.
If you’ve done any research on water softeners, you’ve come to realize that there are a lot of choices when it comes to selecting a water softener for your home. In making the purchase decision, you can be sure you’re getting a top-notch water conditioner that has gone through rigorous testing and meets industry standards when you see the “Gold Seal”.
What does a Water Quality Association (WQA) “Gold Seal” Mean?
Yes. You absolutely can take your WaterTech Reionator or SoftMAX water conditioning system with you to your new house.
As the original purchaser, your warranty will still be in force as long as you follow the owner’s manual and warranty guidelines. However, many Reionator owners elect to leave their water conditioner in the home as a selling point with buyers.
If you do decide to take your system, here are a few things to keep in mind in order to keep the warranty valid:
- AN AUTHORIZED WATERTECH PRODUCT DEALER MUST UNINSTALL AND RE-INSTALL THE SYSTEM.
- Systems cannot be carried, transported or stored on their side:
Although the Reionator and SoftMAX are both quite heavy, the systems cannot be tipped over or laid on their side during moving or transporting, but must remain upright in order to maintain the integrity of the resins. If you’re moving locally, it is preferred that your local authorized WaterTech dealer move the system.
It’s National Drinking Water Week!
We know that learning to LOVE drinking water from an early age can develop into a life-long habit. Yet many of us struggle to get our kids to drink water. They ask for juice, soda or anything ‘besides boring ‘ole water!’
Here are five tips to get kids to drink more water:
We all know drinking water is essential for good health. We’re also aware that most of us don’t drink enough water each day and should try to drink more.
But do we give much thought to what is in the water we do drink? If not, it’s time we did.
An Unexpected Culprit
In the United States, most of us get our water from a public water supply. We trust that this water is clean and ready for drinking, showering, cleaning and cooking.
Although regulations and monitoring are in place, the quality of our drinking water can change daily.
Municipalities work hard to provide clean water for their customers, but contaminants can infiltrate aquifers and springs, and corroded pipes can introduce impurities into the water lines even after water has been processed at a water treatment plant.
How much Water Should I Drink Each Day?
We all know that water is important for good health and to sustain life, but do we know if we’re getting enough H20 each day?
Looking for a great Cinco de Mayo recipe to help you celebrate this year?
While it’s true that Cinco de Mayo is a holiday celebrated mostly in the U.S., May the 5th gives me an excuse to try a new recipe, as well as create a little family FIESTA at home! Some years I’ve decorated our kitchen with green, white and red streamers, other years I’ve simply brought out the sombreros and noise-makers. Either way—my kids like the excitement at dinner time.
