Solution

He bought an S-6 Reverse Osmosis System to purify his water for his family (wife and child). We have provided him what we feel is the best quality water available on the market.

Benefit

This system removes 95+% of all impurities in the water, then adds beneficial minerals back into his water so he has pH positive water now (Reverse Osmosis water tends to be slightly acidic so adding the final stage brings the pH up)

Result

TDS after the water is purified, then a small number of minerals are added back in are 38ppm

  • TDS: 38ppm
  • pH: 7.5
