Water Quality Issues

Not all water is the same

This information will help you to understand the basic role water quality plays in the performance of your new water ionizer.

Hard water in the USA

 According to the United States Geological Survey, 85% of US homes have some level of hardness in the water. In most areas the level of hardness is acceptable for ionizers. The areas of US shown in red on the map below will generally have the highest levels of hardness. Ionizers will perform very well in most of these areas. However, be aware that there are isolated pockets in Arizona, Southern California, Texas, Utah, New Mexico and the mid west that have extreme hard water and this can affect the performance of your water ionizer.    


NOTE: The above map is only to be used as an approximation and used to gain a general understanding of the water quality with respect to hardness of a given geographic area. The measurements in any area can be higher or lower, especially if you are on well water.

The softest water occurs in parts of New England, South Atlantic-Gulf, Pacific Northwest, and Hawaii regions. It is important to note that these are generalities; you can find well water sources in soft water areas that have very hard water and conversely, you can find soft water in hard water areas.

Water Quality Requirements

Source water in most areas of North America measures somewhere between the two extremes specified below, thus allowing for good ionizer performance and longevity. In cases of extreme water quality, we always recommend going with a machine such as the Tyent ACE-11, MMP-11, or UCE-11 that carry a lifetime warranty regardless of the water quality in your area. Please contact us and we would be happy to make recommendations for your situation.
