Did you hear that more than 3 million gallons (11.3 million liters) of acid mine waste was accidentally released from the century-old Gold King mine near Silverton, Colorado? An EPA crew attempted to stem seepage already occurring at the site when sludge was accidently released August 5th, gushing into the Cement Creek stream, just below the site. The contaminated water eventually made its way to the Colorado River. The Phoenix Valley gets about half of their water from the Colorado River, so we should be worried about water contamination in Arizona.
There are about 100,000 old mines all over Arizona that have the potential to release the same contaminates as the one from Colorado. In fact, there were two minor incidents just last year. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) routinely conducts mitigation projects using private contractors to reduce the hazards from mine waste at abandoned mines. But these kinds of accidents happen all the time.
The only thing that can effectively protect your drinking water from any contaminant is a steam distiller. Even RO systems cannot safely purify drinking water. Our distillers are the safest, most effective way to remove such contamination and give the users peace of mind that their water is pure, clean and safe. You can rest assured that the money you spend on a steam distiller is money that will keep you and your family safe.
If you recently purchased an RO system from JB Water and would like to upgrade to a distiller, you could receive up to 100% credit for your RO system to be used towards your new distiller. Call us today and keep your family safe and healthy.
