Water hardness areas in the United States
In Kansas City, filtering your water just isn’t enough. The EPA stated that the safest drinking water is under 50PPM (parts per million) of total dissolved solvents (TDS). The dissolved solvents in Kansas City’s water average around 300-450PPM. This is well above 50PPM and awfully close to 500PPM where water is considered dangerous for consumption.
TDS is a good gauge of inorganic contaminants including minerals like calcium and magnesium and various heavy metals like arsenic, mercury, lead and chromium. High PPM’s might not necessarily mean that your water isn’t safe for consumption, but who wants to take their chances when there are cleaner, safer options?
Our bottleless water and ice coolers purify tap water with a 9-step filtration process that includes reverse osmosis. So, you never have to wonder what might be lurking in your water.
