VFL Billy Ratliff talks about EarthSmarte Water of Tennessee

Most water contains dissolved minerals which raise the pH of the water. These minerals are natural and healthy to drink. Problems arise when the water gets to your municipal water plant for disinfection. Chemicals such as chlorine, alum, and lime are added that affect the pH of the water.

Salt-based water softeners remove the calcium (a beneficial mineral) and replace it with the same amount of sodium, which increases the salt content in your water, and that is not healthy for drinking.

To remove the salt the water softener added, a reverse osmosis filter needs to be installed. However, reverse osmosis also removes 90 to 95 percent of all the beneficial minerals our body needs, leaving the water acidic (pH 5.0 – 6.0).
