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?
As a water softener owner, you can see the salt in your brine tank is running low and it’s time to pick up some more. Like many people, you may be baffled by all of the water softener salt choices you see at the store: crystals, block, table, rock, and pellets. What is better: solar or evaporated salt pellets? What about salt pellets vs. potassium chloride pellets? What should you buy? What is best?
First of all, only salt or potassium chloride specifically designed for water softeners should be used. Do not use dicing or table salt.

What is the difference between the REIONATOR® and other water softeners?
Here at WaterTech, we’ve been manufacturing the “REIONATOR®” water conditioning system for more than 25 years. During this time, The REIONATOR® has established a reputation for quality and is conditioning water in the homes of hundreds of thousands of happy customers.
So what makes the REIONATOR® different from other water softeners?
Water flowing in a local stream and the water flowing through your faucet may look the same, but it is what you can’t see that makes the difference. Stream water can carry microscopic minerals, bacteria, and even tiny organisms. For this reason, it is purified by your local municipality to be safe for drinking, showering, teeth brushing –and all the other things water is used for on a daily basis.
It might be safe to say that we love our large appliances. We can’t live without our 5-cycle dishwasher and our front-loading laundry washer. But the cost of these beautiful, premium brand appliances might have bought a Volkswagen Beetle just 40 years ago! Large home appliances are big investments built to last for years–if we take proper care of them.
At WaterTech, we love our pets just as much as our humans–and we are not alone. Pets are now part of the family in more than 82 million U.S. households according to the most recent APPA* National Pet Owners Survey. That’s right, roughly 68 percent of U.S. households are pet owners. It just so happens that about 70% of the WaterTech family are pet owners, so pet health is important to us.
