Have you and your family been at home more and drinking more water than usual in quarantine?

With stay-at-home orders during the coronavirus pandemic, it has not only been harder to find bottled water, but it also has been more important than ever to have safe and clean water from the comfort of your own home.

At Kinetico SWFL, we have many options, including the Kinetico K5 drinking water system with the Purefecta Guard. It’s the only certified drinking water system to remove the coronavirus and more bacteria than any other system.

How Does the Kinetico K5 Water System Work?

The Kinetico K5 drinking water system will significantly reduce heavy metals, such as lead, minerals, chemicals, and unpleasant tastes and odors. The Kinetico K5 has three stages:

Stage 1 – Pre-Filter: A five-micron filter will capture sediment and small particles while also reducing the chlorine in the water. The chlorine in the water will need to be reduced to protect the reverse osmosis membrane in the system.

Stage 2Reverse Osmosis Membrane: After the pre-filtration, the water will travel to the reverse osmosis membrane; this is where the primary cleaning is accomplished. As the water is put under intense pressure through the membrane, most of the minerals, chemicals, and other contaminants will be removed.

Stage 3 – Post-Filter: In this stage, the water will go through a post-filter, where any remaining contaminants will be removed.

Before the set 3 stages, there are 2 additional auxiliary filter options for added protection. These two additional filters are determined by the filtration needs of your water. The options include:

Kinetico K5 Purefecta Guard

With the K5 Purefecta Guard, you can add even more protection against unsafe drinking water at home. The Purefecta Virus/Bacteria Guard is a medical-grade filter guard and microbiological purifier that can generate drinking water that is 99.99 percent free of viruses, bacteria, and protozoa. Although the coronavirus has not been proven to spread by water, the K5 Purefecta Guard is certified by the Water Quality Association (WQA) to remove the coronavirus and other viruses and bacteria as well as SARS.

Chloramine Guard: Decreases the chloramine from your water. Chloramine is commonly used in public water systems to clean the water. Adding chloramine will significantly clean the public water, but the chemical is no longer needed once the water reaches your home.

VOC Guard: Reduces organic contaminants, such as pesticides, lead, cleaning products, insecticides, and other chemicals.

Perchlorate Guard: Reduces perchlorate, a byproduct from rocket and jet fuel that is found in drinking water and groundwater.

Arsenic Guard: By working with the reverse osmosis membrane, the Arsenic Guard can remove pentavalent and trivalent arsenic from the water.

Mineral Plus: Instead of removing minerals, this cartridge will add calcium and magnesium, two beneficial minerals, to your water.
