  4. 4. Your Body Is Between 70-80% Water<br />Chlorine is Present in Your Water and Your Skin Absorbs Water! The MOST Essential Nutrient<br />The body is made up of 70-80% water. Water is one of the four main nutrients of the body. <br />Why is Water so Important to Our Bodies?<br />All chemical reactions in the body take place in water. Every cell in the human body is bathed in water, which contains materials to keep them vibrant. Water is a transporter of nutrients and oxygen for proper function of the body’s tissues. Water acts as a natural air-conditioning through perspiration. Water is essential for digestion and absorption of vitamins and minerals. Water keeps our skin moist and supple, as well as a natural lubricator for our joints and internal organs. <br />Does Our Body Store Water?<br />The body keeps a reserve store of fuel, such as stores of fat, which can be tapped in emergencies, but although we are made up with 70-80% water, we have no built-in water tank to tap into when running dry. Water is involved in every bodily function, so it’s hardly surprising that its lack can lead to mental and physical breakdown. As dehydration becomes severe the result can be alarming, for example, loss of elasticity in the skin, muscular weakness, severe dryness of the throat, disorientation, and finally hallucinations.<br />
  5. 5. How It Works<br />There are two principal mechanisms by which activated carbon removes contaminants from water; absorption, and catalytic reduction, a process involving the attraction of negatively-charged contaminant ions to the positively-charged activated carbon. Organic compounds are removed by absorption and residual disinfectants such as chlorine and chloramines are removed by catalytic reduction.<br />ApplicationsActivated carbon filtration is very common in a number of home water treatment systems. It can be used as a standalone filter to reduce or eliminate bad tastes and odors, chlorine, and many organic contaminants in municipal (pre-treated or chlorinated) water supplies to produce a significantly improved drinking water. It is also very commonly used as a pre-treatment as part of a reverse osmosis system to reduce many organic contaminants, chlorine, and other items that could foul the reverse osmosis membrane. 0.5 micron carbon block filters are commonly used to remove cysts such as giardia and cryptosporidium.<br />What Contaminants Does Carbon Remove?Activated carbon filters remove/reduce many volatile organic chemicals (VOC), pesticides and herbicides, as well as chlorine, benzene, trihalomethane (THM) compounds, radon, solvents and hundreds of other man-made chemicals found in tap water. Some activated carbon filters are moderately effective at removing some, but not all, heavy metals. In addition, densely compacted carbon block filters mechanically remove particles down to 0.5 micron, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium, turbidity and particulates. Although some iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide will be removed by these higher quality activated carbon filters, a manganese greensand iron reduction filter is generally preferred to remove these contaminants as the effectiveness of carbon filter against iron and manganese is generally short-lived if the contaminant concentration is high. <br />Carbon filters are NOT generally successful at removing dissolved inorganic contaminants or metals such as minerals/salts (hardness or scale-causing contaminants), antimony, arsenic, asbestos, barium, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, copper, fluoride, mercury, nickel, nitrates/nitrites, selenium, sulfate, thallium, and certain radio nuclides. Removing these contaminants requires either a reverse osmosis water filter system or a distiller (some can also be removed by KDF-55 or manganese greensand). <br />GAC does not remove sediment / particulate material very well, so they are often preceded by a sediment filter. Sediment pre-filters also prolong the activate carbon cartridge life by eliminating gross contaminants that would otherwise clog the activated carbon thereby reducing the surface area available for absorption. Carbon block filters are generally better then GAC filters at removing sediment.<br />
  6. 6. What is KDF?<br />KDF process media are high-purity copper-zinc formulations used in pretreatment, primary treatment, and wastewater applications. KDF media supplement or replace existing technologies to dramatically extend system life, reduce heavy metals, microorganisms, scale, lower total cost, and decrease maintenance.<br />Patented KDF process media are 100 percent recyclable and contain no chemical additives. Hospitals, restaurants, municipal water treatment facilities, and homes rely on KDF process media to safely reduce or remove chlorine, iron, hydrogen sulfide, heavy metals, and bacteria from their water. <br />KDF process media are high-purity copper-zinc granules used in a number of pre-treatment, primary treatment, and wastewater treatment applications. KDF media supplement or replace existing technologies to dramatically extend life of the system, control heavy metals and microorganisms, lower total cost, and decrease maintenance. KDF process media work to reduce or remove chlorine, iron, hydrogen sulfide, lead, mercury, calcium carbonate, magnesium, chromium, bacteria, algae, and fungi.<br />KDF media utilize an old process in a new way-the oxidation and reduction of ions, known as redox. In short, the redox process works by exchanging electrons with contaminants. This give and take of electrons converts many harmful contaminants into harmless components, such as chlorine to chloride. Other contaminants, including heavy metals, bond to the KDF media, which greatly reduces or virtually eliminates these substances.<br />KDF process media control microorganisms in two ways. The first is a by-product of redox; the exchange of electrons sets up an electrolytic field in which most microorganisms can't survive. Second, the process of forming hydroxyl radicals and peroxides from some of the water molecules interferes with the microorganisms' ability to function.<br />

  9. 9. A Few Words About Chlorine....<br />Chlorine is universally recognized and used as an effective chemical for purifying water. Water companies use chlorine because of its effectiveness in killing microorganisms.<br />Chlorine attacks organic matter, making it a potent bleaching agent. Almost every home uses common household bleach in their laundry.<br />Chlorine is also very hazardous. Even when diluted, it must be used with care. Read the label on any bottle of household bleach.<br />If chlorine works so well in killing bacteria and bleaching and oxidizing organic food stains, what does it do to our skin, eyes, and lungs?<br />Chlorine plays havoc with our skin and hair because it chemically bonds with the protein in our bodies. It makes hair brittle and dry; it can make sensitive skin dry; flaky; and itchy.<br />It makes good sense to remove chlorine from drinking water. It is just as logical to remove it from our showers. Many authorities feel that we take in more chlorine from one shower than from drinking the same water in one day.<br />Medical science considers the human skin surface as the largest body organ, weighing about 12 pounds for the average adult. It would not seem any wiser to expose that much skin to a chemical disinfectant like chlorine, than it would be to drink it.<br />
  10. 10. Chlorine in Your Shower and Bath<br />Chlorine is used almost universally in the treatment of public drinking water because of its toxic effect on harmful bacteria and other waterborne, disease-causing organisms. But there is a growing body of scientific evidence that shows that chlorine in drinking water may actually pose greater long-term dangers than those for which it was used to eliminate. These effects of chlorine may result from either ingestion or absorption though the skin. Scientific studies have linked chlorine and chlorination by-products to cancer of the bladder, liver, stomach, rectum, and colon, as well as heart disease, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), anemia, high blood pressure, and allergic reactions. There is also evidence that shows that chlorine can destroy protein in our body and cause adverse effects on skin and hair.<br />“The presence of chlorine in water may also contribute to the formation of chloramine in the water, which can cause taste and odor problems.”<br />“Since chlorine is required by public health regulations to be present in all public drinking water supplies, it is up to the individual to remove it at the point-of-use in the home.” - Kemysts Laboratory, Dr. Riddle, Ph.D.<br />“Cancer risks among people drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.” - U.S. Council Of Environmental Quality<br />“Drinking tap water that is chlorinated is hazardous, if not deadly to your health.”- Healthy Water For A Longer Life, Dr. Martin Fox<br />“Known carcinogens are found in drinking water as a direct consequence of the practice of chlorination, a long establishing public health practice for the disinfection of drinking water.” - Municipal Environmental Research Lab, Francis T. Mayo, Director<br />“Chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times. While it prevented epidemics of one disease, it was creating another. Two decades ago, after the start of chlorinating our drinking water in 1904, the present epidemic of heart trouble, cancer, and senility began.” - Saginaw Hospital, Dr. J.M. Price, M.D.<br />
  11. 11. Hydromagnetic Conditioning Principles<br />It would be difficult to consider modern techniques without magnetism. Radar, television, radio, the electron microscope, cyclotrons in atomic energy, etc., could not work without the existence of permanent magnets to guide the electrons to increase their kinetic energy. It is well known that magnetic fields may have an effect on the behavior of dissolved matter as well as crystalline matter; it is therefore logical that these fields could act during the reaction in which these matters take a part, and more particularly, on corrosion and scale formation.<br />The operation of hydromagnetic conditioning systems is based on the fact that most scale-causing solids in fluid systems are diamagnetic. Typical scale-causing substances are calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, gypsum, barium sulfate, sodium chloride, magnesium, sulfate, paraffin, oil waxes and grease.<br />A diamagnetic substance does not have a permanent magnetic moment. This means it will lose its polarity due to changes in pressure, temperature and/or time. When diamagnetic molecules are no longer magnetized, they lose their ability to repel each other. Without this ability, the molecules clump together, forming clusters too large to remain suspended in the fluid system. This results in the formation of scale that we commonly call “lime” (in water) or “carbon deposits” (in fuel).<br />This situation can be corrected, however. If diamagnetic substances are subjected to a magnetic field, they will regain their magnetism. In fact, they will take on the polarity of the magnetic field itself, a phenomenon called induced polarization. Once again able to repel each other, the diamagnetic molecules do not cluster, remaining suspended in the fluid system and eliminating both new and existing scale buildup (lime and carbon deposits). The ability to reverse existing buildup is important since it restores pipes and equipment to their original condition. This happens because the re-polarized molecules are able to re-polarize the other molecules that have settled out, suspending them once again in the fluid system.<br />
  12. 12. Hydromagnetic Conditioning Principles<br />Hydromagnetic conditioning systems provide the quantity and quality of magnetic energy required to induce polarization in scale-causing substances. The patented magnetic circuits, optimize the factors that affect performance; gauss; field direction, shape and strength; velocity and fluid properties.<br />All of this is accomplished with a marvel of simplicity -- and low cost. They install easily, require no electricity or maintenance, do not add or remove anything from fluids; and they virtually last for ever. If chemicals are being used, they can be reduced significantly, and in some cases, eliminated.<br /> Simply Stated<br />Water Conditioners magnetically alter the physical characteristics of water-borne minerals so they don’t cling to pipes or equipment surfaces. No scale is formed because minerals remain in a rinsable, purgable solution. This technology does not add or remove anything from the water, so water purity is unaffected.<br />
  13. 13. Modern Hydromagnetic Technology Vs. Old Salt Technology<br />Filtercon uses modern, patented hydromatic technology.<br />Filters out chlorine bad tastes and odors from every faucet.<br />Reduces hard water problems without adding chemicals.<br />Does not remove healthy minerals, the water tastes great!<br />Leaves water feeling naturally clean and crisp; leaves skin feeling soft and refreshed, leaves hair feeling silky.<br />Requires no reverse osmosis. Provides clean filtered drinking water from every faucet, bath and shower in the house.<br />No wasted water.<br />No cartridge or filter change maintenance.<br />No maintenance or repair costs. Computerized system cleans itself automatically once per week; Uses only 20-30 gallons.<br />Expelled water contains no salt and is applied to grass or vegetation whenever possible, eliminating water waste.<br />Eliminates need for buying bottled water. Delivers delicious tasting water from any faucet contributing to a healthy lifestyle.<br />Water softeners developed in 1938 use outdated salt or potassium.<br />Does not filter water.<br />Requires constant addition of salt or Potassium to water.<br />Removes healthful minerals.<br />Salt residual makes water feel slippery or slimy – a common complaint is, “I feel like I can’t wash the soap off.”<br />Requires reverse osmosis under sink to filter salt from drinking water at only one faucet.<br />Reverse osmosis wastes from 3 to 7 gallons (depending on model) for each gallon flowing from the faucet (up to 150 gallons a week!).<br />Water softeners require a constant addition of salt or potassium and periodic reverse osmosis filter changes.<br />Requires continuous maintenance and ongoing repairs. <br />Generates wastewater containing salt which cannot be used on grass or vegetation. Many communities no longer allowing salt laden wastewater to be put down the drains because it pollutes groundwater.<br />Many people continue to purchase bottled water for drinking and cooking. The inconvenience of lugging bottles of water from the store and sometimes running out, inhibits good water drinking habits <br />
  14. 14. Used and Recommended By Leading Doctors<br />“Most people have no idea of the degree of contamination our drinking water has faced over time. Water is source of all life and it is the #1 thing our body depends on each day. Can you imagine what we have been contaminating our bodies with everyday? The reason why I chose the Filtercon is for the same reason - to have the satisfaction in knowing that the water I’m drinking is safe. The Filtercon uses advanced technology in water filtration that uses no chemicals, salt, or other additives that may harm the quality of water.

  15. 15. Used and Recommended By Leading Doctors<br />“Many water systems will remove the bad taste and bad odors of community water. In addition, the Filtercon removes the chlorine that can have medical consequences. Many people are not aware that chlorine is absorbed through the skin while bathing or showering as well as from drinking water. This is a system that works on all the water in a house and not just drinking water. The water has significant health benefits. Finally Filtercon leaves in all the healthful minerals, that so many people have depleted from their bodies.” <br />- Neil W. Hirshenbein, M.D., Founder and Medical Director of Physicians Clinic, La Jolla, and El Cajon, CA <br />We’re proud that the medical director of the Center for Advanced Medicine Dr. Mark Drucker, M.D., Medical Director of the Center for Advanced Medicine chose a Filtercon system for his home, and recommends Filtercon systems to his patients.<br />“I have recommended water filtration to my patients for over 30 years. As I find new and better units, I seriously consider advising my patients to consider the particular brand I have researched. My first move when I examined the Filtercon unit was to buy one and replace the unit I have in my own home. It obviously was superior and I have been most pleased.” - Dr. Kurt Donsbach, D.C., N.D., Ph.D. <br />
  16. 16. Is Bottled Water the Answer?<br />We don’t think so, while it’s generally good tasting, bottled water is:<br />Expensive, anywhere from $0.79 to $5.00 per gallon, and will continue to increase in price!<br />The quality of some, maybe little or no better than tap water<br />Plastic bottles may leach PCB’s into the water<br />Large bottles are heavy to lug around <br />When you take a bath or shower your body is still absorbing the chlorine, chloramines, and other chemicals anyway, even if you’re drinking bottled water.<br />
