Common Questions About Water Treatment
Aren’t city and most well water good enough without an Aquion unit?
That depends on what is “good enough” in your standards. Although most communities meet Primary Drinking Water Standards, your water can still contain impurities you simply can’t taste or smell. These impurities can be potentially harmful. Aquion takes that water and creates great-tasting water which meets a much higher standard.
My city water system tests fine at the source. Why should I worry?
From the time water leaves the processing plant and arrives in your home, it can obtain substances that become part of the water you use. Sediments and odors can also be obtained during this process. An Aquion system provides a highly effective barrier against these additives.
How does an Aquion water treatment system remove hardness?
“Ion Exchange” is the process by which hardness in water is removed. Particles due to the hardness in water and debris are positively charged. When the water runs through Aquion’s resin system, which has millions of negative charges, the water which flows past allows for calcium, rock, iron and magnesium to be brushed off and out of the water.
How much sodium will be in my Aquion water?
Very minimal. Because of Aquion’s regeneration system, in most cases, you’ll find less sodium in a quart of Aquion water than you can in a single slice of white bread.
For example, if your doctor recommends that you stick to a sodium-free diet, Aquion’s reverse osmosis process allows for the total sodium content in your drinking water to be nearly zero.
Is activated carbon a safe method of filtration for drinking water?
Yes. Activated carbon filtration is recommended by the EPA for use in municipal water treatment plants.
Will my Aquion unit alter the pH level of my water?
No. However, if your pH needs adjustment, your Aquion dealer can recommend a suitable solution.
What if I move?
You can exclude your Aquion unit from your real estate contract and take it with you. The lifetime warranty that comes with your product is good no matter where you are in the world. Aquion’s international dealer network can help you reinstall your unit and provide you with service in most every location.
How can I calculate the return on my investment?

- You will use less soaps, shampoos, detergents and household cleaners.
- Clothing will look brighter, whiter and wear better and longer.
