What is Puronics?
Puronics is known to be one of the best water purification manufacturers in the world, made in America since 1947. Formerly known as General Ionics, they are an internationally recognized brand name for Water Softening and Water Purification Systems. Puronics is widely known for co-developing the Water Conditioning System used in some space shuttle technology. (Check out this article about Puronics in space!) They are the preferred Water Filtration manufacturer for several recognizable national name brand clients, such as Corona Beer (if you have ever had a Corona Beer, then you have had Puronics water), the Marriott, Hilton, PF Changs restaurant, many hospitals, pharmaceuticals, and more.

We test your water for:
Hard water contains calcium and other minerals that cause water spots, stains, and build-up in your plumbing and water-using appliances, such as your water heater. It can also cause your hair and skin to feel dried out.
- Chlorines & Chloramines
Chlorines and chloramines are used by cities, townships, and municipalities to ensure there is no bacteria or other living organisms in the water they deliver to your home. Different areas use different chemicals in varying amounts to treat water. While some areas contain merely traces, others contain very high levels. Some are even higher than pool water. These chemicals are certainly not good for your health, and there is no reason to allow them into your home.
Anything in the air that is not air is called precipitation. Likewise, anything in the water that is not water is also called precipitation. This test reveals how much “junk” is in your water. Precipitation can be any number of things. It could be simple micro sediments, it could be agricultural waste (nitrates) that seep into the groundwater, it could be industrial compounds from the groundwater, or it could be iron or rust particles from the pipes used to deliver water. Long story short, it could be many things, but none of them are supposed to be in your water.
PH and Alkaline
If you’re on city water supply, you probably have PH 6.5 to 7.5, which is perfectly fine. The higher the better! Well water, however, is a different story. We always check the PH of well water because it varies so much from area to area and from depth to depth. High alkaline water is extremely beneficial to your health. Low PH water is acidic and can have a negative impact on your plumbing, water-using appliances, and even on your health.
Homes with iron in their water typically show red stains or rust color stains on fixtures, fences, sidewalks, inside toilet bowls, sinks, and bathtubs. Have you ever noticed that your water has a ‘metal’ taste? It could very well be because of high iron levels!
Typically, nitrates are residue from agricultural waste such as manure- which is as nasty as it sounds. Unfortunately, New Jersey is the “Garden State” and we have a lot of farms. Plus, our water is derived from aquifers which flow from upstate New York, which means there is a lot of nitrate seeping into it.
Soap Bubble Test
This is an important test to demonstrate how much soap it takes to achieve suds and lather, versus how much would be required if you had clean, soft water. It’s a real eye-opener.
We include the local township or municipality water test, as well. This test contains important information on levels of known contaminants. Typically the report will look like this: Mantua Water Report
Using 70 years of continually advancing technology, Puronics water treatment systems include technologies such as water softeners, water filters, micro-filtration, ultra-filtration, bacteriostatic carbon filtration, reverse osmosis, and ultraviolet disinfection. Their systems prevent bacteria from growing inside the tank itself while killing bacteria that may enter the tank from your local city water or well water. However, that’s not why Orbit selected Puronics as our preferred Water Treatment vendor. We selected them because they are the MOST EFFICIENT Water Softening System, using only 47-gallons of water per regeneration cycle. They are also the BEST PERFORMANCE Water Purification System, accomplishing a Flow Rate of 14.9 gallons per minute. This ensures great water pressure, which means no wimpy showers!
