The Million Dollar Club!

Friday, April 28, 2017 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Health, Water News, Products, Water Safety



Multipure is pleased to recognize Water2Drink.com for the extraordinary achievement in reaching $1,000,000 or more in product sales. It is a rare achievement, and those who reach it have proven their dedication and sales ability.

Water2Drink – Ron New and Brian Browning

Hailing from Virginia, Network Director Ron New has been a Multipure Distributor for over 30 years. Although he was introduced to Multipure as a customer in 1983, … it took five years before Ron joined the business opportunity, enticed by the prospects of the compensation plan. While he is well aware of Multipure’s superior quality, and of the benefits of drinking healthy water, he also understands the tremendous value of Multipure’s products and the way Multipure’s business opportunity can help support his family; because of this, he feels it is his responsibility to educate everyone about the need to #filter their water and the benefits of #Multipure.

Under the business name of Water2Drink, Ron and his behind-the-scenes business partner, Brian Browning, have found tremendous success with Multipure; it is through this success and Ron’s decades of experience that they have learned that successful Distributors must possess strong knowledge, belief, and communication ability. Distributors must be knowledgeable about the challenges people face with their water, and about the ways Multipure products address those challenges. Distributors must believe in the power of Multipure’s products, and understand that they are truly helping address real and urgent health concerns. And Distributors must be able to communicate this information effectively, accurately, and frequently in order to build trusted relationships, both with customers and with prospects.

The key to Ron’s – and Water2Drink’s – achievement is his attitude toward the business as a whole. Becoming a Distributor is just the first step. Although the need for clean water is urgent, and the market is growing because of this need, commitment and dedication in time and resources is necessary for true success. He states, “Your only real limit is your own drive to succeed in this business. Success is not easy or automatic, but it’s not hard either. Focused, consistent efforts are what it will take to attain your personal goals for your Multipure business.”

Congratulations to Ron and Brian for this exceptional achievement, the #MillionDollarClub!

Simply the Best

Monday, February 13, 2017 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Health, Water News, Products, Water Safety



Once again, the Multipure MP750SB has been rated #1 in the “Undersink Water Filter” review category of a major consumer product review and ratings magazine. The Multipure Aquaversa “MP750SB” is listed in a chart at the bottom of Page 33 in the March 2017 edition of the magazine.

Water2Drink.com was founded in 2003 on the basis of providing the absolute best water filtration products. We believed then, and still believe, that the #Multipure Drinking Water Systems family of products is the best available filter on the market. Multipure’s family – the AquaVersa, the AquaPerform, the AquaRO, and the AquaLuxe (the “next generation” of water filtration) – consistently  rank as the highest rated in performance, not only by major news publications, but also by NSF International, an independent 3rd party that certifies the performance claims of manufacturers. #NSF provides clear, concise documentation of what contaminants are reduced, and the percentage of reduction. Multipure products provide industry-leading reductions of the widest range of contaminants at an affordable price. If you are comparing water filtration systems, be sure to look for the NSF performance data sheets for any product you consider for purchase.

We here at #Water2Drink want you to experience clean, fresh water. Once you have purchased a Multipure product, Multipure offers a 90-day, no questions asked, satisfaction guarantee. However, this generous full product price return policy is rarely used! The majority of our customers (99%+) not only keep the Multipure filter, they also will share their positive experience with friends and family. Wouldn’t you want your loved ones to be protected from the onslaught of contaminated water events that are occurring all over the nation?

Water2Drink.com is ready to answer your questions and help guide you to the best Multipure Drinking Water System for your family. We want you to be healthy, happy….. and simply the best!

Free Shipping... Or Not?

Monday, August 31, 2015 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Products



“An Alaska company is planning to be the first to ship massive amounts of fresh water to drought-plagued California, potentially as much as 10 million gallons a month,” so says a recently published article by USA Today.

A former bottled water company executive, Terry Trapp (now CEO of Alaska Bulk Water), says his company has the rights to take up to 9 billion gallons of water from the Blue Lake in Sitka, AK. He would ship fresh water from #Alaska via tankers to help relieve the drought in California. However, California water experts are doubtful of the cost efficiency of this option.

“Ideas like this ‘are technologically feasible but economically unreasonable,’” says Peter Gleick of the Pacific Institute, in the #USAToday article. The #PacificInstitute is a global water think tank based in Oakland, CA, and he believes there are many such ideas about shipping #freshwater without understanding the cost issues involved.

Sustainable water management must look at all facets of water sourcing. While it may be possible to provide water distribution from other areas of the country, the cost of that distribution and associated environmental impacts must also be considered. We may be able to bring water to drought stricken areas, but at what cost to the planet? What will we be adding to #globalwarming by burning fossil fuels in the tanker ships and trucks that deliver the water?

There are ways to be sure you are getting the most healthful, economical water possible. First, by using your local municipal water supply instead of buying bottled water, you are not contributing negatively to the environment. #Water2Drink recommends the use a high quality, point of use water filtration system, such as a Multipure Drinking Water System that is NSF-tested and certified to remove the most potential contaminants. A Multipure filter is designed to work with your locally treated water source. You may also purchase a #Multipure Drinking Water System that includes a capacity monitor, to ensure you are receiving the most gallons from the solid carbon-block filter. A correctly installed Multipure Drinking Water System from Water2Drink.com provides clean drinking water for just $0.09 per gallon, with no waste.*

While you may not pay shipping costs for your water, you may be paying the price with your #health. Water2Drink can help you decide which Multipure filter is the most effective and economical choice for you and your family’s needs.
 
*To eliminate waste, the Multipure AquaRO Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System requires a Zero-Waste kit. All RO systems waste as much as 12 gallons of water for each gallon produced. However, the Zero Waste kit allows every gallon to be used.

Down the Drain

Monday, May 25, 2015 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Health, Water News, Products, Water Safety



The decision to purchase and use a water filtration system is hopefully the beginning of consumer awareness of the quality of and care for our fresh water sources. By the time a consumer makes that choice to invest in their health, he or she has typically uncovered the poor quality of not only their local water supply, but may have also uncovered larger, farther-reaching concerns regarding the impact of purchasing choices on the global water supply.

An article in this week’s New York Times online introduces us to Stiv Wilson, an environmental advocate who has taken on the battle against microbeads. Microbeads (or, #microplastics) are those miniscule colorful dots contained in toothpaste, hand sanitizers, facial cleansers, and other cosmetic products. But once the product is rinsed away, the beads rinse away with it and end up into our water sources. “By the billions,” according to Rachel Abrams' article. “‘The effect is similar to grinding up plastic water bottles, other products of concern to environmentalists, and pumping them into oceans and lakes. But because microbeads are small enough to be ingested by fish and other marine life, they can carry other pollutants into the food chain.’”

While four states (IL, ME, NJ, and CO) have restricted the use of #microbeads, there is no federal mandate at this time to restrict or ban synthetic particles, or even to require the development and use of biodegradable beads. But consumers can make responsible personal choices, deciding not to purchase or use products that contain microbeads. “Consumers have more outlets than ever to voice concerns about products, particularly online, where a whisper of danger can turn into a roar. Seeing the effect on their sales, manufacturers have increasingly faced pressure to respond to those concerns,” says Ms. Abrams. The only way we can prevent this microscopic plastic pollution in our waters is by insisting the products we buy are responsibly produced.

In the meantime, the use of a solid carbon block filter, such as a Multipure Drinking Water System from #Water2Drink, will effectively remove these particles from your drinking water. All Multipure systems are NSF tested and certified to the submicron level, using both mechanical filtration and electrokinetic adsorption to capture particulate matter. As the water passes through its densely compacted #solidcarbon block filter, particles as small as 0.5 micron are removed.

Look around your house today to see if you can replace or eliminate any products containing microbeads. And we encourage you to contact us at Water2Drink.com if you need help evaluating the best drinking water system.

EPA ECHO Now Available

Friday, April 10, 2015 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Products



You may have read previous blog posts by Water2Drink about the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), the importance of water quality education, and reading your local water report. We like to bring our customers the latest in water news and provide resources for you to monitor and advocate for locally provided clean water.

The Environmental Protection Agency has a new user friendly website that presents enforcement data about SDWA drinking water violations. This service, called ECHO (Enforcement and Compliance History Online) “contains interactive charts and graphs that provide information regarding the compliance of public water systems with federal drinking water regulations, as well as enforcement actions,” according to the EPA press release dated 4/7/2015.

While the information provided by EPA’s ECHO drinking water dashboard is an overview of the regulatory activities of #EPA by states, tribes, and territories, it does provide the opportunity to “View More” additional charts and data by using the menus at the top of each section. Users can also access and download detailed data from each chart. Additionally, the dashboard provides information not only on public drinking water systems, but also provides data on “Air,” Hazardous Waste,” and “Water” as well.

Water2Drink believes knowledge is power, and becoming an educated consumer allows you to make the best choices about water filtration. Not all #waterfiltration systems are created equal, and we recommend our customers use an NSF-tested and certified Multipure Drinking Water System in their homes to ensure your family’s protection. Visit the “Resource Center” on our website, Water2Drink.com, to learn more about evaluating drinking water filter solutions and to identify the best products for your needs.

The Best Just Got Better!

Sunday, March 29, 2015 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Products



This week, Multipure International announced an important enhancement to the Aquaversa (MP750) and Aquadome (MPAD) Drinking Water Systems. These two models are now certified under NSF’s new Standard 401, “Emerging Compounds/Incidental Contaminants,” to greatly reduce emerging contaminants that are occurring in water sources today. These compounds include #pharmaceuticals such as pain relievers and blood pressure medicine, hormones, herbicides and pesticides, and other chemicals used as flame retardants and detergents.

The newly certified Aquaversa and Aquadome have been proven effective in reducing the levels of the following 15 contaminants covered under Standard 401:

Atenolol Bisphenol A
Carbamazepine Estrone
DEET Ibuprofen
Linuron Naproxen
Meprobamate Nonyl phenol
Metolachlor Phenytoin       
TCEP Trimethoprim
TCPP
 
NSF International surveyed more than 1,000 American consumers, and those surveyed indicated that of the emerging contaminants, #pesticides and herbicides were of greatest concern, followed by prescription drugs, detergents, flame retardants, and OTC medicines.  According to the survey, these emerging contaminants were ranked by consumers as being of significant concern to their health. #Standard401 addresses all of these contaminants, and now the Aquaversa and the Aquadome are NSF-certified to reduce them.
 
Multipure continues to improve its solid carbon block filtration technology to increase its effectiveness and to provide consumers with products that address current and emerging needs in water filtration.  Water2Drink.com is proud to be an exclusive distributor for Multipure, and we strive to provide our customers with updated information and assistance in solving your water filtration needs.  Contact #Water2Drink today and we can help you determine which Multipure drinking water system is right for you.

Does Your Local School Serve Toxic Water?

Thursday, February 19, 2015 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Health, Water News, Products, Water Safety



California has myriad water woes, and here’s another one to consider. Seven years ago, the local NBC4 I-Team investigated Los Angeles area schools that had children drinking from potentially unsafe water fountains.  The schools had old fountains and pipes made with lead that leached into the drinking water.   Today, thousands of schoolchildren in L.A. are still drinking from these fountains.
 
The NBC4 story states the Los Angeles Unified School District (#LAUSD) would solve the problem by having the water lines to each fountain flushed daily, running the water for a minimum of 30 seconds at the beginning of each school day.  The schools were to keep logs for proof that the lines were flushed.  But a 2013 audit report says one #school was found to have falsified the logs, and an additional six schools claimed they had followed the policy but in fact hadn’t.

Lead leaching from older pipes and fixtures is a chronic problem in older buildings like schools, and this problem can occur in any school district in the country. The problem is exacerbated when communities use chloramine to disinfect their water, which accelerates #lead leaching.  Chloramine is a disinfectant that is formed by mixing chlorine with ammonia.  It is a less effective disinfectant than chlorine, but is longer lasting and stays in the water system as it is transported to the point of use.

The solution? Carry fresh, filtered water from home, using a Multipure Drinking Water System from Water2Drink.  The #Multipure family of drinking water systems are all tested and certified to reduce #chloramine, along with dozens of other contaminants, metals, PCBs, and cysts.  Using a Multipure system for your drinking water costs just $.09 cents a gallon, and provides assurance that you are using a superior water filter in removing or reducing the highest number of contaminants. Water2Drink.com is happy to answer your questions about choosing the best #waterfilter for your family’s needs.

Give your kids a head start by giving them clean, Multipure-filtered water.

Finding What You Need to Know

Wednesday, January 14, 2015 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Products



Recently, we received feedback from our customer, D. Dixon, about our website: “I'm really liking your website. Full of great information, especially the links to the EWG water quality data and the cross reference to filters by chemicals treated.” Today, Water2Drink would like to highlight some features of our website that may help you with your water filtration purchase.
 
Our website, Water2Drink.com, is full of useful information regarding the entire Multipure family of water filtration systems.  We believe that this information is critical for our customers to become better educated on how Multipure’s solid carbon block filter is superior to other technologies on the market.  We encourage our customers to explore our website in depth to learn how and why the #Multipure products are so highly effective at #contaminant reduction.
 
Thanks to our customer, D. Dixon, here are a few suggestions on where to begin:
 
EWG U.S. Tap Water Quality Database.  This link (under “Useful Links” on the bottom of our home page) takes you to the Environmental Working Group’s National Drinking Water Database.  On this page, you can enter your zip code and/or your water company’s name, and the Database will provide the results of testing done by the water company.  It will specifically list the contaminants that exceed health guidelines in your own water supply. Knowing this information, you can use our Detailed Product Information link (described below) to pinpoint the #water filtration system that will best meet your needs.
 
Detailed product information. We provide a link to every Multipure product’s Specification Sheet (describing benefits, features and specifications), Performance Data Sheet (providing the list of contaminants reduced), and Owner’s Manual (including Warranty, Installation, Operation and Maintenance information).  These links are located under “Product Manuals” in our Resource Center, and are especially helpful in determining which system will address your specific needs.  They also provide advance information for your plumber or installer, should they have any hardware, fittings, or installation questions.

The Multipure Challenge.  This link is located in our Resource Center, under the “How a Multipure Water Filter Works” tab.  The Multipure Challenge is a cross reference list of common, harmful contaminants and the filter technologies that address them.  Only Multipure’s solid carbon block filtration system effectively reduces all contaminants, while not eliminating the naturally occurring, healthful dissolved minerals.

We at Water2Drink.com are passionate about Multipure products for a healthy lifestyle, and we are happy to share our knowledge with you.  Contact us with your questions or comments. We’d love to hear from you!

Pros and Cons of Reverse Osmosis Treated Water

Sunday, November 30, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Products



We here at Water2Drink.com want to be sure you have the information you need to make an informed choice about your water filtration system. We want to talk to you, our customer, to gain insights into your water filtration needs, such as how many people will be using the filter, what type of water resource serves your area, and any potential health hazards in your water supply that must be addressed.  We strive to help you obtain the most efficient, cost-effective Multipure Water Filtration System to meet your personal needs.

We often receive inquiries about using a reverse osmosis (RO) water filtration system.  Many people are under the mistaken belief that, if removing dissolved contaminants is healthful, then removing ALL dissolved minerals will be even more healthful.  This is simply not the case.  While there are times when an RO system is exactly what is needed, most often an #RO system will remove the good with the bad, according to University of Wisconsin health family medicine physician Jacqueline Gerhart.

If you were to compare the pros and cons of an RO system, you would find the list to be somewhat unbalanced.  Very briefly, here is a short list of pros and cons that we came up with to help you understand that sometimes less is more.

The pros of having a Multipure 5-step Reverse Osmosis drinking water system include:
  • Removes certain contaminants that a carbon filter will not.  These include #fluoride, often added to municipal water to prevent tooth decay. You can see the entire list of contaminants removed by the Multipure AquaRO system here
  • Removes ALL dissolved natural minerals (for the rare occasion when someone has extraordinary or excessive levels of calcium, magnesium, sulphur, etc.)
However, there are many cons that must be considered as well. For example, an RO filter:
  • Removes HEALTHY levels of essential elements as well, such as calcium, iron and manganese. Most people need these naturally occurring dissolved minerals, especially infants and children
  • Leaves the water tasting “flat” or “lifeless”
  • Is inefficient – less than 20% of the filtered water is consumed, the rest goes to waste.  Waste can be mitigated by using a #Multipure “Zero Waste Kit;” however, this adds expense and complexity to the system
  • Is more expensive to purchase and maintain, and must be carefully maintained to protect the expensive RO membrane
  • Is more complicated to install; there are many more components than a carbon block filter
  • Requires more space under the sink – there is no countertop installation option and it also requires waste water disposal
  • Requires a special air-gap faucet that is larger than standard faucet, utilizes three hoses and comes only in a chrome finish
While certain circumstances dictate the use of a Multipure AquaRO drinking water system, most often your health goals can be better met by another Multipure product family.  Contact #Water2Drink today to ask questions and get answers to help you decide what is right for you.

Is Your Filtered Water Cloudy?

Friday, November 21, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Health, Water News, Products, Water Safety



It’s that time of year again, when the snow is blowing, the wind is howling, and your water is… cloudy?

Probably the single most asked question we get in the wintertime from our customers is, “Why is my filtered water cloudy?”  Water can be cloudy for two reasons, one that is benign and one that can be very bad.
 
The benign answer is:  it’s just air.  If you are using a high quality point-of-use water filter, such as a Multipure Drinking Water System, you may be surprised to see cloudy or milky-looking water coming from your filter.  This most often occurs when the water is cold (coming from cold ground water or being transported underground through cold pipes).  One of the properties of water is its ability to dissolve gasses, including #air.  Cold water is denser than warm water, and therefore it is capable of holding more dissolved gasses.  The cloudiness or milkiness is simply dissolved air.  You can test this by filtering a glass of water and letting it set on the counter for a moment or two. The cloudiness (air) will dissipate upwards from the bottom of the glass, leaving a glass of clear filtered water.
 
Why is this not considered turbidity?  Turbidity is the measure of relative clarity of a liquid, or of how much material may be suspended in water and how that material decreases the passage of light through the water.  Turbidity refers to how clear water is, and indicates the presence of total suspended solids.  When solids are present in water, this indicates the water is not clear of particulate matter, and these solids may also be contaminants of great health concern.   An article on Waterontheweb.org states, “turbidity adds real costs to the treatment of surface water supplies used for drinking water since the #turbidity must be virtually eliminated for effective disinfection (usually by chlorine in a variety of forms) to occur.  Particulates may also provide attachment sites for heavy metals such as cadmium, mercury and lead, and many toxic organic contaminants such as PCBs, PAHs and many pesticides.”
 
Of course, you must use a quality water filtration system such as a #Multipure filter to remove particulates and contaminants.  But just how does this filtration work?  For contaminants having a physical size, the solid carbon block filter provides mechanical filtration on a submicron level to remove particulates and bad tastes.  It also employs electrokinetic adsorption to attract and control charged particles.  Almost any carbon filter can reduce chlorine and address taste and odor problems.  The Multipure solid carbon block technology goes well beyond aesthetic improvements to remove the broadest array of #contaminants, including turbidity.  Each product in the Multipure family is provided with a Performance Data Sheet that details NSF’s product certification data and contaminant reduction test results.
 
Water2Drink.com sells only Multipure Drinking Water Systems, the highest performance water filtration systems, which lead the industry in innovation and improving filter performance.  We at Water2Drink.com are here to answer all your water questions and help you select the right filter for your needs.

Announcing: The Multipure Aqualuxe!

Friday, October 24, 2014, in Water News, Products



Last week, we talked about how to protect yourself from waterborne microbial cysts. This week, the world of water filtration has a new Multipure product to address current concerns about transmittable disease by #bacteria and viruses as well.

At the Multipure 2014 PURE Annual Convention in Las Vegas, NV, Multipure International introduced the Aqualuxe, a bold, innovative departure from their other product families. 
 
What makes this product exceptional? Here is what we believe are the #Aqualuxe’s standout features:
  • Contemporary styling – the housing will be offered in black, white or red. It has a stainless steel pressure vessel with a plastic housing and lifetime warranty (5-year warranty on electronics, 1-year on accessories)
  • Extraordinary performance – this filter will be NSF certified for not only all the #contaminants Multipure products currently are certified for under NSF 42 and 53 (including arsenic), but in addition:
    • NSF P231 – bacteria and virus – 6-log reduction of bacteria (99.9999%) and 4-log reduction of #virus (99.99%) – this is a very big deal!
    • NSF 401 – emerging contaminants, including pharmaceuticals
  • Quick-change cartridge with patented new self-sealing housing design
  • Integrated capacity monitor with replacement filter cartridge, low battery, and system status indicators
  • #WiFi connectivity to monitor system performance remotely and deliver replacement filter cartridges “just in time” via autoship program
  • “FilterSync” technology to help ensure that only fresh, genuine Multipure filter cartridges are utilized
  • Integrated leak detector
  • 500 gallon rated capacity
  • Quick-release hose connectors
  • Below-sink or countertop installation options
 
We have not seen another product quite like this currently on the market. The expected retail price is $1,080, and the replacement filter cartridge is $150.
 
This is a remarkable departure from past products for Multipure. They introduced this product concept several years ago to their distributors, and #Multipure has been working hard to bring it to market ever since. It’s exactly what is needed for communities that constantly receive “boil water” alerts, which is happening with increasing frequency, or for anyone who is concerned about the growing #contamination problem in our nation’s water supply.
 
Multipure has the product on display at their company headquarters, and a select few test marketers have an “ACE” beta version to provide valuable feedback to Multipure.  Multipure is still in the process of obtaining NSF certifications and refining their manufacturing and supply processes, and they estimate that the product will be ready to ship in early 2015.  In the meantime, Water2Drink.com will soon be updating our website with this new product information, and you will be able to register to be notified when the Aqualuxe becomes available.
 
Finally! A comprehensive water contamination solution for your home!

Counting Your Gallons

Sunday, September 21, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Products



If you are looking for an appropriate Multipure Drinking Water System for your home, you probably have looked at the Aquaversa family of products. In researching the entire Multipure product line, you may have noticed that the Aquaversa MP750 model and the MP1200EL model appear to be identical, with only the addition of a Capacity Monitor on the MP1200EL.  What is the difference between these two filter models?  This is a common question that we hear many times from our customers, and here is an explanation of the key difference.

As you may know, all Multipure Drinking Water Systems have been tested and certified under NSF drinking water filter certification rules.  Under these rules, the manufacturer is permitted to claim only 50% of the "test capacity" of the filter. The test capacity of the Aquaversa MP750 is 1,500 gallons, so NSF’s "rated capacity" for that model is 50% of those gallons, or 750 gallons. The logic behind this is, since customers are not measuring actual water usage, NSF wants to establish a wide margin of error for when the filter cartridges are replaced.

If, however, the manufacturer includes a "performance indication device," such as the Capacity Monitor included with the Aquaversa MP1200EL, and the customer can measure the actual water usage to more accurately time filter cartridge replacement, the manufacturer can claim 80% of the test capacity. For the Aquaversa MP1200EL, that's a rated capacity of 1,200 gallons.

Generally speaking, Water2Drink.com recommends the MP1200EL model for families of four or more, and for office or higher volume environments. Otherwise, consumers should plan to replace the filter cartridge annually, which also will serve to maintain the manufacturer’s lifetime housing warranty.

Please contact us if you have any other questions regarding how to choose the best Multipure product for your home!

Life Isn't a Movie

Friday, July 18, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Products



While Julia Roberts in the “Erin Brockovich” movie is able to make sense of Chromium 6 chemical contamination in a small town’s water source, life isn’t a movie for families who are affected by this issue. Fortunately for some, California has become the first state to impose a limit on hexavalent chromium (also known as Chromium 6). But what if you live with this issue (or another prevalent water contamination source) and your state has not imposed limitations or restrictions?

The most effective drinking water filter solution for consumers with very specific water contamination issues is the Multipure AquaRO Reverse Osmosis System.  It is an ultrafiltration system that can remove contaminants such as barium, cadmium, chromium (both hexavalent and trivalent), copper and dissolved solids (such as sulphur, iron, calcium and magnesium), fluoride, nitrate and nitrite, perchlorate, radium and selenium.

But don’t just take our word for it.  Multipure’s AquaRO system is performance tested and certified by NSF International to NSF/ANSI Standards 42 (Aesthetic Effects), 53 (Health Effects), and 58 (Reverse Osmosis).  This five-stage water filtration system produces fresh, clean drinking water for an average operating cost of just 29 cents per gallon!  If you want to know more about what components make up the Multipure AquaRO, view this video about “What’s In the Box?”

If you have a specific water contamination issue, contact Water2Drink.com to find out how you can reduce your exposure to toxins.  We can help you pinpoint the water filtration system that will meet your needs and your budget.

Three Reasons to Skip Bottled Water

Friday, July 11, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Products, Water Safety


The bottled water industry has exploded over the last decade. The effectiveness of the bottled water marketing campaigns has led the general public to believe buying their product is the safer, more convenient way to consume purified water. But you can’t believe all the marketing hype.  Thanks to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), here are some reasons to skip bottled water and find another solution.

1.       1.  What’s in the Bottle? No, not the contents, but within the plastic used to make the bottle. The FDA has disclosed which chemicals are used to make PET plastic (marked with a #1 code), but do you know how many chemicals may be leaching into the water?  An EWG investigation found these plastics contain “dozens of chemical additives, manufacturing impurities and breakdown byproducts – a total of more than 80 potential contaminants that can leach into the water.”

2.       2.  What’s in the Water? In 2008, the EWG found 38 pollutants in 10 brands of bottled water. The bottled water industry, unlike water utility companies, rarely discloses the results of contamination testing on its product.  Yet they claim that bottled water is as safe as tap water. “Given the industry’s refusal to make available data to support its claims, consumers have little reason to be confident in the purity of bottled water,” says the EWG.

3.       3.  Plastic Pollution.  As consumption continues to rise, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that only 29% of plastic bottles were recycled in 2011. This leaves 71% of plastic pollution to pollute waterways, clog landfills, and threaten marine life.

So what is the solution? Filter your tap water and use a reusable bottle.  There is a wide range of water filtration products to fit every budget and each water concern.  A Multipure solid carbon filter, tested and certified to NSF/ANSI standards, provides consumers superior water filtration to deliver healthier water. At Water2Drink.com, we can provide you with affordable, effective alternatives to bottled water.  Our Resource Center has product information, performance data and warranty information to help you select the most effective water filter to fit your needs. Call or visit us online today to explore the hidden costs of bottled water.

Let’s begin eliminating harmful bottles from our world and the planet!

Making Your Drinking Water Safe in an Emergency

Friday, July 4, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Products, Water Safety



Oh, no! Your community just issued a boil water alert due to a water main break, and the authorities don’t know how long it will last. What will you do to protect your family?

If you own a Multipure Water Emergency Treatment (WET) System, the answer is relatively simple: treat and filter your tap water to make it safe to drink. The WET System comes with everything you will need to produce safe, clean drinking water. Here’s how it works:
1.       1.  Fill the collapsible bucket included in the WET System with tap water to the designated level.
2.       2.  Add the disinfection tablets that are included in the WET system, stir until dissolved, and then let the water stand for a few minutes.
3.       3.  Screw the provided plastic fitting into one of the two Multipure EF8 emergency carbon block filters included in the WET System.
4.       4.  Attach to the fitting the plastic tubing provided in the WET System, and make sure the shutoff valve on the plastic tubing is closed.
5.       5.  Place the bucket on a tabletop or other raised surface and put the EF8 filter inside the bucket, letting the other end of the plastic tubing extend well below the bucket.
6.       6.  Place the open end of the plastic tubing into a suitable container to collect filtered water.
7.       7.  Let the filter soak for a few minutes and then open the shutoff valve on the plastic tubing.
8.       8.  Let gravity pressure do the rest. In very little time, fresh clean water will begin flowing through the EF8 filter and out the plastic tubing into the drinking water container.
9.       9.  When the source water bucket is empty, refill and repeat the process as often as needed until safe water service has been restored.

The WET System becomes your backup drinking water source in case of emergency. The Multipure WET System requires no electricity, hand tools, or anything else except water. Everything you will need is included in the kit.

How do you obtain a Multipure WET System? This product currently is not offered for sale, however, it’s available for FREE when you purchase a new Multipure Drinking Water System for your home or office. Click here for more information about this limited time offer, available from Water2Drink.com.
