REDUCE PFAS 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.

I called Branch after the 1st company that came to my home only tried to... sell me a new system. Carla at the office was very pleasant & went out of her way to make me comfortable. She said that they work with many systems even my old one. Immediately I was very happy when Manny showed up because it was obvious he knew what he was doing and said he would soon have my system up and working again. This company was very professional, clean & quick. They have my gratitude. My wife was extremely happy with the cost, which has me very happy!Thank you Branch!read more

Just want to give a big shout out to Manny. Manny is the MAN-E . I just... missed him... he serviced my water softener and said everything was running smoothly via my boyfriend. But I still had some concerns and questions and I had wanted to be here but had appointment so when I got home boyfriend informed me that everything was running great. I still have questions and concerns so I called him he answered and told me everything was going smoothly I said I have a couple more questions and this and that so he said I have another run but I will come back I want you to be satisfied. So he came back met him out by the water softener he showed me everything he did even dug up the salt pedals to show me there was water in there show me how to flush out the system showed me four or five different things so that I knew how to handle the water softener and keep it running smoothly answered all my questions and concerns with a happy-go-lucky positive attitude. I'm telling you that's customer service hard to find these days to double back basically just to give me peace of mind this man definitely knows what he's doing. You want somebody that is super friendly thoughtful and goes above and beyond to go out of his way to make his customers happy thank you Manny if I could give you a hundred Stars I would because you're one in a million keep up the good work.read more
