Drought emergencies remain in place for many California residents as water resources continue to dwindle. While some communities have had a bit of relief with some recent rain, others are severely struggling. This persistent lack of water has many of our nation’s top researchers and water coalition groups working together to help find a solution to the water crisis; however even with new initiatives being created it will be several years before residents will see the impact on their water supply. Homeowners in several communities are being asked to reduce their water usage by up to 35%, and they are struggling to find ways to get their water usage under control. Another concern they have is the possibility of contaminated water. Californians are already faced with water that has a significant amount of contaminates such as nitrates and arsenic; with less groundwater available to dilute these contaminates they are becoming much more concentrated. Many residents already have some sort of water filtration system in place due to the questionable quality of their water; however the problem is that most water filtration systems waste huge amounts of water. When water conservation is imperative as well as a need for a water filtration system to ensure safe drinking water, it makes sense to look at a more eco-friendly option. One such option is the LINX drinking water system. The quality of water produced by this system is impeccable; it virtually eliminates nitrates, bringing them down to non-detect levels as well as arsenic, lead, chlorine and a host of other contaminants found in drinking water. They also have a patented Dial-A-Taste option that allows you to control the taste of your water and dial it in to fit your personal preference. What really sets it apart from other filtration systems however is the lack of water waste. Most consumers don’t realize how much water a reverse osmosis (RO) system really wastes. The reality of the situation however is that to produce one gallon of water, a RO requires 12.5 gallons of feed water, which means that 11.5 gallons of water are just wasted and flushed down the drain! This is an insane amount of water to waste, especially considering our water shortage. The LINX drinking water system on the other hand only requires 0.6 to 1.4 gallons of feed water. In the course of a year, you could easily save over 7,000 gallons of water. Watch our video to learn more. With homeowners struggling to find ways to conserve water, an eco-friendly water filtration system is a great start. With no signs of this drought being lessened anytime soon, we are going to have to start looking outside the box to come up with ways to conserve our water.
