KNOW WHAT'S IN YOUR WATER

The following is a brief list of the different contaminants and additives found in municipal water supplies that may cause or contribute to problems in environmental illness sufferers:

 

Although most of the harmful substances often present in water sources are removed by the water companies, significant amounts of harmful substances remain in the water when they come out of your faucet.In a review of US federal and state records in 2004/2005 carried out by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) as many as 45 million Americans were found to be receiving water that fails basic health standards. Their review found that over 25 million people used water contaminated by bacteria, 5 million had lead levels above standard and inadequate water treatment was a problem for 20 million water customers. In another EWG study that focused on agricultural states it was found that 14 million people were consuming tap water routinely contaminated with five major herbicides.

 

This situation is not unique to the United States but rather is common in western countries.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT OUR

WATER SOFTENERS?

JOSH

"Hill Country came in at thousands less than the other guys with a superior system. I met with the owner, Derek and he was very knowledgable, fair and honest. I highly recommend Hill Country H20 for all your water softening and purification needs. The BEST part is I no longer need to lug packs of bottled water into the house."

MATT

"Derek and his crew did a great job! It’s easy to see why they have so many 5 star reviews. From taking the time to help us determine which set up was right for our family, quick installation and post installation Q&A, these guys are a well run operation with attention to detail. I highly recommend Hill Country H2O."

KATINA

"Daniel, Chris, and Patrick, it was truly a blessing having you all be a part of the installation side of Pur Tech Water Treatment. My system is working as it should. Your top notch professionalism and courtesy from start to finish was outstanding."

JAMIE

"I have had my system a little over a year now. I hadn't planned on buying a water softener but I am so glad I did. I moved to Leander and did not know they had really hard water. Having the softener is extending the life of my appliances and the drinking water is delicious."
