We helped a concerned home owner today with her filtration system she uses to filter her City of Flint water. She is concerned about volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including those created in the chlorination processing of the water (trihalomethanes for instance) and would also like to reduce sediment, heavy metals, and potentially bacteria in the water. She only has a two stage filtration system, limiting the options, so we eliminated the […]

Again, much the money was raised 10 cents at a time via pop/soda bottle returns. Proof that lots of people doing a little bit each can accomplish great things! We are impressed by the people in Flint reaching out to […]
