There's a well-known axiom that says "You don't want to know what goes into making sausage." The same could be said about water.
You may not like what we're going to show you but at least you'll have the facts so you can combat them, when ready.
When you see an ad that says "Kills 99% germs, bacteria and viruses.", you probably think that's enough to make water safe. Not so. Here's what is really going on in contaminated water that needs to be addressed:
1.) Germs, Bacteria, & Viruses
2.) Violent Pathogens - Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Flesh-Eating Bacteria, Legionella, Salmonella, E.Coli, Parasitic Worms, Hepatitis A and many more
3.) Taste & Odor Issues
4.) Iron, Manganese, Lead, etc. (metals)
5.) Organic Pollutants (BTEX, POPs, AOX, etc.)
6.) Emerging Contaminants (fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, etc.)
7.) Algae - from the mild to the most deadly (golden & blue/green algae)
8.) Biofilm (colony where germs live)
9.) Turbidity (cloudy water)
10.) DBPs or CBPs (disinfection or chlorinated by-products) - carcinogenic
VAST and ozone are the only chemicals that can address all of these issues. Ozone is cost-prohibitive due to the need for an ozone generator to make ozone. Chemicals like Chlorine can only address a couple of these issues, plus they instigate DBPs/CBPs.
It takes Chlorine 10 days to kill Crypto @ 1 ppm. VAST does it in less than 10 minutes.
Germs, microbes, pathogens, microorganism...whatever you want to call them, live in biofilm. Biofilm is the slimy stuff that you notice on surfaces that are wet, such as pipes. To treat the "cause" as well as the "symptom", it is necessary to eliminate biofilm. Otherwise, the cycle will continue as you see in the photo.
VAST is exceptional at eliminating biofilm permanently. Toxic chemicals are not.
It's not enough to disinfect our waters. It is also necessary to eliminate the biofilm in our pipes as well. VAST will do both, simultaneously.
There are several ways to disinfect pathogens in water and surfaces. Toxicity (poison them), UV (radiation), Ozone Gas and VAST (oxidative stress). Toxicity requires multiple chemicals and instigates DBPs. UV is safe but not very effective. It requires supplementing chemicals to complete the disinfection process. Ozone gas is effective except that it is exorbitantly expensive & has a very short residual. VAST is a proprietary formula that comes in an instant, liquid form. It is the most powerful, safe and affordable way for treating water & surfaces using oxidative stress.
A chemical clearinghouse in the U.S. lists over 900 toxic chemicals for water treatment. Why is it necessary to have that many products? The answer - it isn't. Toxic chemicals are antiquated as using poison for treatment is no longer effective enough.
One toxic chemical for each application adds up pretty quickly.
A toxic chemical is made, typically, to do one function such as a metal remover. All it does is remove certain metals from water. Occasionally, a toxic chemical like chlorine can do up to maybe, three functions - disinfect, sanitize and remove mild algae.
What contributes to "toxic chemical overload" is the limited capability of each toxic chemical. Therefore, a person may use 5, 10 or 15 toxic chemicals to resolve a contamination issue with water and surfaces.
VAST, on the other hand, offers an All-In-One technology that is simpler and safer than toxic chemicals. Its reach is 10+ functions and can work as a "standalone" treatment for all types of water - drinking water, wastewater, well water, pool & spa water, aquarium water and so on.
