5 Steps of water filtration
During this time of crisis, it is important to make sure you are taking every precaution to avoid contaminants that risk your health. According to CDC, all 50 states in the US have reported cases of coronavirus and the numbers keep on growing. People with pre-existing medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes and heart disease appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus, that is extremely contagious. For that reason, to avoid the spread, companies are letting their employees work from home to avoid contact with people who can potentially be contaminated.
But your safety can be threatened if your house is not prepared.

STAGE 5 HALO ION Inline Water Conditioner Our patented HALO ION Inline Water Conditioner

uses multi-reversing polarity permanent magnetic fields to alter the molecular structure of positively and negatively charged ions of dissolved calcium and magnesium. This causes the hard water minerals that would normally cause lime scale to stay suspended in the water instead of attacking pipes and appliances. The conditioned water also helps prevent corrosion due to scale and will dissolve existing scale overtime.

With over 45 years of track record, the HALO ION Inline Water Conditioner is a proven, eco-friendly hard water treatment solution.
