A Clear Course To System Health
The Potable Water Program is designed to improve water quality and protect systems from the expensive degradation caused by composites. At the core of the program is a NSF certified proprietary potable water treatment product, Parafos.
What Is a Potable Water System
A potable water system draws from municipal or local treated water systems and delivers water intended for human use and consumption. While safe for use water is very corrosive to internal plumbing and carries suspended minerals, which can build up inside pipes, hot water tanks and fixtures.
Common Issues In Potable Water Systems
Minerals like magnesium and calcium buildup will result in reduced efficiency, degraded water pressure, fouling and clogging in fixture and pipework, expensive equipment replacement, and disruptive downtime.
Pinholes leaks caused by water corrosion can result in expensive building damage including water damage, mold, seal abrasion, pump failure and potential a complete building re-pipe.
Oxidation can cause unsightly red, green, or black staining in sinks, toilets and other fixtures.
Once a multi-unit residential or commercial building reaches ten years old, you may notice the occasional pinhole leak in the copper pipes of your domestic or drinking water lines.
Potable Water System Solutions
Added in small doses to water, Parafos® suspends minerals in the stream, preventing scale buildup, and gradually dissolves existing scale and iron deposits. By preventing and eliminating scale, Parafos® improves the efficiency of your system and reduces energy costs.
Parafos® forms a monomolecular film on the waterside of metal plumbing surfaces. This protective barrier alleviates many of the problems associated with corrosion and pinhole leaks.
Most importantly, Parafos® is NSF and CFIA approved to be safe for human consumption and environmental discharge. It is also colourless, odourless and tasteless
Unlike other potable water solutions, Parafos® can never reach unsafe levels and will not prevent future plumbing repairs.
Certified Safe for all Systems
Parafos® is tested and certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
