Real Protection from Contaminants. An advanced filtration appliance designed to filter all water throughout your home, providing truly healthy water to every sink and shower. All our whole home filtration appliances utilize the highest quality, highly reactive, highest iodine rating granular activated carbon (GAC) in order to effectively remove and reduce chlorine, chloramine, VOCs, THMs, PFASs, pesticides, herbicides, pharmaceutical residues, obesogens, and more. Our filtration appliances are in use worldwide by hospitals, medical centers, health and fitness centers, military, professional athletes, and thousands of personal homes worldwide.

Healthier Home & Lifestyle. All EWS and CWL appliances are designed to prevent you and your family from drinking, absorbing, and inhaling various contaminants and carcinogenic (cancer-causing) chemicals. Enjoy chlorine/chloramine-free, healthy, filtered water for your entire home drinking, bathing, showering, pets, plants, pools, spas and plumbing. Enjoy healthier skin and hair, and delicious odor-free water from every sink. Alleviate symptoms of asthma and allergies by providing chlorine/chloramine-free filtered water for showering and humidifiers.

Easy to Install & Self-Maintains. Our whole home filtration appliances are hassle-free, self-cleaning, user-friendly appliances that only require a filtration media change about every 10 years (based on your local water conditions and usage). Your EWS or CWL appliance installs easily like a water heater at the main water supply line to your home. Automatic backwashing prevents bacterial build-up and provides a continuously renewed surface area for filtration (plus, the backwash water is completely safe and filtered, and may be used for plants, gardening, pools, livestock, and pets). Complete installation information comes with every unit and is available online.

The Highest Quality Possible. We are known throughout the industry for our impeccably high standards, quality materials, and American manufacturing. Your CWL Spectrum contains 85 pounds (2.5 cubic feet) of the highest grade granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration media, which has ZERO chemical additives, fillers, metal resins or metal-based media, or silver impregnation (which is silver nitrate, a pesticide). Meets or exceeds all FDA, NSF, ANSI, and California State standards and compliances.

Environmentally-Friendly & Cost-Effective. Our CWL appliances are the environmentally-friendly, maintenance-free choice to filter your water no resins, no chemicals, no corrosive softeners, no brine discharge, no gimmicks. Replace expensive and wasteful bottled water with healthy, filtered water from every sink in your home. Our tanks and parts are recyclable and our proprietary filtration media is completely compostable and biodegradable. Our advanced easy to use valve requires an ordinary electric outlet and consumes only the power of a doorbell.

Protect Your Home & Appliances. Aside from thoroughly protecting you and your family from contaminants, our appliances protect your kitchen appliances, water heater(s), and bathroom fixtures from the ravages of chlorine, chloramine, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which harm fixtures, heating elements, finishes, surfaces, connections, and internal parts.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
