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.

We purchased a new water conditioner from Branch Water. I called and had... Luis at the house a few days later. After we met with Luis,and he tested our water we reviewed the options available to us, to either replace part of our old unit or make the investment to get a whole new conditioner with a great warranty. We decided to go with a new unit because it makes more sense to us. I called the office, and now just 2 short days later we have a new system. Joshua Soper did the install in a few hours. Very happy we chose Branch Water of Central Florida Inc.read more

We decided to proceed with the water softener product after a fantastic... demonstration from Luis. The appointment was scheduled immediately within 48 hours and it was completed the Friday before Christmas. The installation was absolutely outstanding. Manny installed our new AO Smith Precision Series (AOPRC-1354U) water softener and took excellent care to ensure no damage to the house and installed the equipment precisely and efficiently. Manny also went above and beyond our expectations when he explored alternatives to power the water softener equipment without penetrating the exterior wall which was brilliant. We are very happy with the overall product and quality and appreciate the extreme care and professionalism by the installation technician, Manny, for a job well done. Thank you again!read more
