PureOFlow Water Purification Delivers Drug-Free Water
For Immediate Release
Reverse osmosis technology tapped as solution in AP investigation on pharmaceuticals in drinking water; but incorrectly labeled too expensive for home use
Las Vegas – Today, PureOFlow, a company specializing in commercial and residential water purification systems, is pleased to announce its PureOFlow high-capacity reverse osmosis is an effective deterrent to the growing health threat of pharmaceutical contaminants in drinking water.
According to an Associated Press (AP) investigative news story, pharmaceuticals have been found in drinking water of a least 41 million Americans. The result of a five-month inquiry into the supplies of 24 major metropolitan areas, the investigation found the presence of many over-the-counter prescription drugs and medicines in tap water that have not been tested for combined or long-term exposure to humans.
The report also cited that, “One technology, reverse osmosis, removes virtually all pharmaceutical contaminants but is very expensive.” The report also noted that, reverse osmosis is only appropriate “for large-scale use and leaves several gallons of polluted water for every one that is made drinkable.”
PureOFlow’s PureOFlow is a new more-affordable and more water efficient water purification that can be used for the whole-home or whole business eliminating point-of-use systems and lowering maintenance costs. The PureOFlow system is designed to produce a recovery rate of 33-55%, an average of 80% more efficient rate than traditional reverse osmosis. In areas where water conservation is of paramount interest, PureOFlow becomes a natural choice.
The PureOFlow reverse osmosis (RO) system removes nearly all of the substances found in tap water both natural—such as hard water salts, and manmade—such pharmaceutical contaminants. As water enters the home it passes through a PureOFlow system containing a series of membranes that work to reduce up to 98% of more well known harmful substances such as arsenic, lead, and radium – neutralizing particles as small as 1,000th the width of a human hair, as well as eliminating any trace-amounts of drugs drinking water.
“The debut of PureOFlow’s PureOFlow technology and systems at the 2009 NRA (National Restaurant Association) show, underscores the growing concerns of businesses and consumers to receive the healthiest water possible at home or dining out,” said Mike Paice, president of PureOFlow. “Even users of bottled water and home filtration systems don't necessarily avoid exposure to drug-contaminated drinking water. Bottlers, some of which simply repackage tap water, do not typically treat or test for pharmaceuticals.”
“The problem is that most of the innumerable drugs consumed every day are not completely absorbed or metabolized by the body; we excrete them into the sewer, and our treatment plants are very ineffective in removing them from this water which ultimately becomes our drinking water, “said leading water-consultant, Peter Cartwright. “There are a large number of unanswered questions about health-risks at this time.”
“The bottom line is that we have the necessary tools at our disposal to mitigate these contamination issues and reverse osmosis, coupled with carbon filtration and ozone pre- and post-filtration is the most economical and effective treatment method available today, “added Cartwright.
Unlike any other water purification system on the market, PureOFlow utilizes a special membrane technology through an exclusive licensing agreement with GE. This revolutionary technology is a new approach to water purification that delivers desalination and purification in one system offering the most resourceful and cost-efficient water purification on the market.
