For nearly all of my adult life, I've been filtering my tap water for drinking and cooking. Once I started, I became so much more sensitive to the "off", sometimes chemical taste, that tap water can have. Currently, I live in a condo building that has awful water quality. It smells metallic and of chlorine, so I use a Zero Water Filter and remineralize it with ConcenTrace drops.
I have long wished for a whole-house filtration system, because we also absorb chemicals like chlorine through our skin when we bathe. According to Chris Kresser's literature review, chlorinated tap water has been linked to increased rates bladder, kidney, and rectal cancers (source). Chris also says: "...it’s reasonable to assume that chlorinated water adversely affects beneficial intestinal flora. Chlorine is a powerful antimicrobial agent, and is an effective pesticide against many different strains of bacteria. The compounds in disinfected water may be able to reach the gut not only through our drinking water, but also through daily showers and baths."
Ugh. I'm doing so much work to heal leaky gut and consuming all these great lacto-fermented foods and probiotics, I don't want to inadvertently kill off the good guys with my shower water!
AquaVida Whole-House Filter System
What if I told you that there was an incredibly generous gentleman named Dan, owner of United Environmental Solutions, who is willing to give one of you a Whole Home Water Conditioning with Two-Stage Filtration System? One that is valued at $4,995? Well, I wouldn’t be lying.
18 amazing bloggers have come together, partnering with Dan, to make this happen, because we know that everyone deserves to drink (and bathe in) the cleanest, safest water possible.
Before I get into the specifics of how you can win (and also how you can purchase one of the systems at a wholesale price), I want to take a moment to tell you a little bit about this system and what it can do for you and your family.
What exactly is the AquaVida (Water for Life) Whole Home Water Conditioning with Two-Stage Filtration System?
The BEST part is that the AquaVida Whole Home System requires NO FILTER CHANGES! You add salt to the system once or twice per year, and that is it for maintenance. The system will last 10+ years! Yep – 10 or more years and NO FILTER CHANGES. Epic right?
What will this Whole Home Water Filtration System remove or reduce?
- Hexafluorosilicic acid (which is the human made fluoride added to water)
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
- Trihalomethanes (THMs)
- Pharmaceutical residues
- and much more
What else can it do?It will soften your water too which is excellent for those of you living with hard water. (And oh how soft and shiny your hair will now be!)
I’m sure you have heard of Berkey and Propur. While these are two great water filtration options (and Dan offers both so visit his site if you are in the market), they can only be used on a small scale – not for the whole house. Sure, they are not nearly as expensive but honestly, I would rather have something that can manage ALL the water I use and not just some of it.
Want To Own an AquaVida Whole Home Water Filtration System For 70% Off?I am super thrilled to not only be giving away one of the Whole House Systems but also to give you the opportunity to own one for next to nothing. Dan has agreed to open up a “co-op” opportunity for anyone interested in owning one of these systems. Up to 15 people can get in on this amazing deal. Dan is willing to offer the system for the wholesale price of $1,498.50. This does NOT include installation but Dan can help you find reputable installers who typically charge between $200-$500 depending on how complicated your plumbing is. Let me make sure that you got all that. You can OWN a WHOLE HOME WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM for $1,498.50. You will NOT find a better deal on this caliber of system. Even Costco can’t touch this deal. And Dan also stands behind his products so you know he will be there when you need him.
If you want to take advantage of this deal, you need to email Jennifer who is the mama behind Hybrid Rasta Mama. She set this all up so I’ll let her work out the details with you and Dan. You can find her at Jennifer [at] hybridrastamama [dot] com. But you need to email her before May 20th. And I suggest doing it soon. Remember, only 15 people can get in on this and I already know several slots are spoken for. If you are in Canada, you are eligible but there is an additional $300 shipping and customs fee.
