We all need to drink plenty of clean water every day, but right now, we can’t move for stories in the press about water contamination – and things are getting worse. How can we safely filter water at home to drink?

A shocking new study from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has revealed that exposure to the cocktail of lethal carcinogens in America’s tap water causes or contributes to over 100,000 cancer cases in the US over a lifetime.
The peer-reviewed study puts much of the toxic culpability on the presence of three main contaminants found in the water supply to millions of homes:
This disturbing report means that more and more people are being prompted into finding a long-term, reliable solution to protect their family from contaminated tap water.
EWG Recommends Home Water Filters
The EWG has suggested installing individual water filters at home.

According to this report published in January by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), 173 million people – around half of all Americans – have been exposed to radiation in their drinking water. That means an increase in the possibility of developing certain types of cancer and can also have a detrimental effect on fetal development.
The “Erin Brockovich” Chemical
By studying 50,000 water systems countrywide, the EWG found that millions of people across 50 states are drinking water that contains radioactive contaminants; including the most commonly-occurring radioactive element, radium.
In Texas – one of the worst affected states – up to 80% of homes are supplied with water containing potentially dangerous levels of …
Yesterday we looked at the way in which the process of Reverse Osmosis works to purify water. In a nutshell, this is how RO works: water is forced by pressure through a semi-permeable membrane that allows the water molecules to pass through but not larger molecules like iron, salts and minerals.
The final product is water that contains fewer impurities, but also has had all the important minerals and salts filtered out. As mentioned yesterday, many industries rely on non-corrosive RO water for use in the manufacture of their products.
Moreover, drinking water purified by this process requires that those minerals be reintroduced into the water to make it healthier.

I am really enjoying these questions from good people everywhere wanting to learn more about alkaline water from Tyent water ionizers. It is with tongue-in-cheekthat I refer to them as filling the Mail Bag. In actuality, they come in by email, telephone, and occasionally, some snail-mail from all over the world. However, the questions are legitimate regardless of how they arrive.
With that said, let’s reach into the electronic Mail Bag and see what we have on tap for today.
The question du jour is a good one.
How is Water from a Water Ionizer Better than “Regular” Water?
Posted by: Rhona Reid On November 13, 2014 7:17 pm
It is somewhat amazing the number of people from all over the world who are contacting Tyent each day wanting to learn more about alkaline ionized water, water ionizers, and how Tyent’s machines work. Many people had essentially the same question but some first wanted to know what exactly a water ionizer is.
First question up.
What is a Water Ionizer?
At its core, a water ionizer is a machine. Only this machine is specially designed to filter, ionize and alkalize ordinary tap water. A transubstantiation of sorts: changing one thing into something entirely different. It’s important to note that the water created by Tyent water ionizers is filled with …

A reader wants to know, ” Is Alkaline Water from a Water Ionizer Really Better?” Now that is a great question! Reaching deep into the Tyent Mail Bag, I plucked that little gem of a question out and am happy to answer it.
Is water from a water ionizer really better? Well, the answer would depend on what you were comparing it with. Better than a new Porsche? Maybe not.
Okay, obviously, I am playfully comparing apples and oranges here.
However, when you seriously compare water from a water ionizer with other water, ionized alkaline water is not only better…it is far superior.
What Tyent alkaline water ionizers do is transform ordinary tap water into ionized alkaline water, raising its pH level to a reading of above seven on the pH scale. People have become more aware in recent years of the benefits of drinking water with a higher pH level (alkaline) rather than acidic, and are turning more and more to ionized alkaline water for better health. As we all know, any water with a pH of seven or above is alkaline. The process known as ionization is what creates ionized alkaline water. The trail-blazing water ionizers by Tyent are made of the finest materials available to ensure …
