PFAS Removal From Your Family’s Water With One Efficient System

Water all over the country has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS, and our area is not exempt. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

 Eighteen million Americans live in communities where the water systems are in violation of the law. As a mater of fact, the federal agency in charge of making sure those systems are safe not only know these issues exist, they’ve done little to stop them, according to information provided by CNN, which cites multiple sources and water experts.

Our goal is not to scare anyone into getting water treatment, however, educating our local community about water quality is a top priority. We’ve worked with many local families to improve their water and to provide peace-of-mind, knowing the water they drink and bathe in is free of harmful contaminants.

Contact us today to learn more about our professionally installed and serviced drinking water system that reduces PFOS contamination. Fill out the contact form or call (863) 576-5541!

What are PFAS, PFOA, PFOS and What’s The Difference Between Them?

In a nutshell, PFAS stands for per- and polyflouralkyl substances, which are synthetic chemicals used to make everyday products we all use (your cell phone, your non-stick pans, some food packaging, most things that used to be made at 3M are made of PFAS). PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid, also referred to as C8) and PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate) are simply two types of PFAS, and the difference between the two is the number of carbon atoms in the chain of polyflouralkyl. GenX is also considered a PFAS contaminant.

These chemicals have been around for almost 80 years when they started being manufactured in the 1940s. Unfortunately, a lot of chemical waste ends up being dumped in the water supply we drink from. Imagine 80 years of chemical waste contaminating the water we use every day.  

The Water Quality Association (WQA.org) tells us exposure to PFAS can happen when we eat food grown in soil contaminated by PFAS or drink water that has been contaminated and not properly filtered out. It can also be released through the household products we use to clean our homes.

Some potential health risks of PFAS exposure are cancer, a weakened immune system, fertility issues, low birth weight for infants, abnormal levels for cholesterol and thyroid hormones, and inflammation of the liver. Other health-related issues are still under research.

Carla called me to schedule a softener system check-up. I was getting... ready to go into the hospital for surgery and could not schedule at the time. She treated me with great compassion and understanding and wished me luck. I asked her to call me back in a few weeks after surgery to reschedule. Carla called again in a few weeks as I had indicated and scheduled a softener system check-up for my system. The technician she sent out was Manny. What a great guy!! He knows what he is doing and was very friendly and professional. I can't say enough about these two!! What an absolute pleasure to deal with!!! Thank you!!!read more

From start to finish this is a great company. Carla took my call and Manny... did an awesome job working on my water softener. Manny had to take the whole thing apart and put it back together again, the tank was leaking in the bottom. I bought a WaterBoss from somewhere else and they did an awesome job helping me!! Thank you so much, Carla and Manny!!!read more

The installer, Josh, just finished installing a water softener and whole... house filter. He was extremely efficient and maintained an organized work environment. He explained all aspects of the project including all maintenance requirements. In summary, if Josh's excellent work is a reflection of Branch Water's company ethos, I can wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone requiring water treatment systems.Thanks, Branch Water!read more

From the sales process to the installation to our new, great tasting water... we have been very pleased with Branch Water. The chemical taste and we will no longer have to deal with the calcium buildup in our appliances and on our showers. We chose the Wi-Fi connected option and I love being able to look at our water usage and other details on the app on my phone. We would definitely recommend Branch Water of Central Florida if you are considering a water softener!read more

Josh came out to do an annual check and add salt. This is same company... that installed my water softener but ownership has changed. Josh is the son of the original owner. He is absolutely awesome! He explained everything to me and answered all of my questions. My fence gate was sticking and he thoughtfully took a moment to adjust it for me. Not only do they sell excellent products but the customer service is beyond compare.read more
