Our body is over 70% water.
All our vital body functions depend on it.
Water is nature’s way of cleansing, lubricating and replacing body fluids vital to good health.
Not drinking enough water can affect your immune system, cause digestive problems, excess body fat, joint and muscle soreness, chronic fatigue, and many other health problems.
Unfortunately, in the last century alone, we have contaminated and polluted our environment more than since the beginning of time!
Pesticides and Fertilizers
Leaking Underground Storage Tanks
Leakage from Sewage Pipes
Factory Chemicals and Toxic Wastes
Chemicals from Water Treatment Plants
Corroded Underground Water Pipes
Contamination from Pipes in Your Own Home
Autos and Trucks
IS YOUR DRINKING WATER SAFE?
How much contamination is ok with you?
silt and rust
IS BOTTLED WATER THE SOLUTION?
The answer is " NO"
“In recent tests of 103 brands of bottled water, one-third contained levels of bacteria or carcinogens that exceed purity guidelines.” - Natural Resources Defense Council. In addition it's expensive: Can be 2-3 times the price of a gallon of gasoline; inconvenient to carry and store; and may not be fresh because it can be bottled up to 2 years before purchase.
OTHER OPTIONS: Faucet and Pitcher Types
Tiny filters have limited efficiency
Require frequent filter replacement
Inadequate bacteria protection
Saturate and dump impurities into water Reverse Osmosis
Needs frequent and expensive servicing
Removes healthy minerals
Water wasting process
Slow and low output, limited water supply Distillers
Slow process, water tastes “flat”
Removes healthy minerals
High electric consumption Common Carbon Filters
Inadequate removal of Bacteria, Cysts, Asbestos, and other harmful contaminants
Saturate and dump impurities into water.
CARICO HAS TAKEN WATER FILTRATION TO A NEW LEVEL
Potential Health Effects of Contaminants Tested:
• Chlorine - Can produce (THM’s) a cancer causing risk
• Asbestos - Possible cancer cause
• Lead - Nervous System damage; Kidney effects; highly toxic to infants and pregnant women
• Nitrate - Can cause Methemoglobinemia (disease affecting red blood cells)
• Giardia Lamblia Cyst - Causes stomach and digestive disorders
• Trihalomethanes (THM’s) - Dichlorobromomethene, Chloroform, Chlorodibromomethane, Bromoform (These compounds are part of total “THM’s” considered as Cancer risks)
• Bacteria (Total Coliforms) - Coliform bacteria can be indicators of organisms that cause assorted gastro-enteric infections, dysentery, hepatitis, typhoid fever, cholera, and other diseases.
WHY OUR CERAMIC IS THE SOLUTION?
Carico's Point-of-use water purification systems utilize the exclusive Full-Spectrum Cartridge.
Here's how it works... • Stage 1: The water enters and travels through our patented high performance blending of NSF certified KDF 55 and the finest quality Coconut Shell activated carbons. During this performance stage there is a substantial reduction of chlorine, lead, mercury, iron taste and minor levels of hydrogen sulfide. In addition lime, scale, mold, fungi, chloramines are reduced and a bacteriostatic environment is created that inhibits the growth of bacteria, micro organisms and viruses. The NSF certified KDF 55 greatly enhances the performance of the highly activated carbons.
• Stage 2: The water continues its travel through a high performance blend of carbon, which is designed to further eliminate/ reduce chlorine, bad taste, odors, dissolved organic and inorganic chemicals and reduces heavy metals such as: lead, mercury, cadmium, chloroform, sulfides, arsenic, THMS, VOC's, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, MTBE* and BTEX* (*petroleum and crude oil by-products) and more.
• Stage 3: The water travels through a high density Garnet Bed, which is designed to reduce any carbon fines and trap any sediment that may enter the Collection Stage.
• Stage 4: The filtered water enters the final performance stage and is now treated by a magnetic field. As water passes through this, the magnetic field serves to soften the water tension thereby giving a softening effect without the need for salt or other chemicals. This stages also reduces the formation of scale which builds up on your water heater, spigots, shower heads, toilets or in your tea kettle and coffee pot, and extends the life of your appliances that use the water as well as the network of pipes in your entire home for all your water uses.
The water leaving your system is now cleaner, safer, fresher tasting and crystal clear!
Carico Water Filtration Cartridges were submitted to laboratories in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Europe and Mexico for a series of extensive tests. The abstract results document the effectiveness of the filter in the removal or reduction of contaminants from drinking water.
Every component and/or media ingredient in the filtration system
meets or exceeds NSF standards.
100% of live Cryptosporidium
100% of Giardia Lamblia Cysts
99.9% of: E. Coli
And a wide range of other contaminates and a variety of bacteria and viruses, including Anthrax spores and more.
(*Hyder Labs - U.K.)
These documented test results were obtained by independent laboratories. Tests were performed on water containing measured amounts of contaminants in accordance with recognized procedures and EPA standards, where applicable.
The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by this system are not necessarily in your water. The system must be maintained according to manufacturer’s instructions, including cleaning and/or cartridge replacement. Capacity varies with local water conditions. Do not use where the water is microbiologically unsafe.
No health or medical claims are expressed or implied for any Carico water filtration system. Specifically, the states of California, Iowa, Massachusetts and Wisconsin do
not recognize any health or medical claims made for any water filtration systems sold in their states, unless certified by their state’s Department of Health.
