Antares is the ultimate alkaline water machine in the water filtration market. Antares features a tankless filtration system, which is unique in the industry. Not only does it provide pure filtrated drinking water, but it also provides alkaline water in the process. Antares is popular because of the digital control panel that makes it easy to operate and maintain.Antares provides an answer to the challenges of treated water in our communities, eliminating the need to buy bottled water. Many municipal water sources in the U.S. use either chlorine or its most common substitute, chloramine, as disinfectants. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that the byproducts of chlorine and chloramine in water may act as human carcinogens (cancer-causing agents). Although the Antares reverse osmosis unit uses a combination of carbon filters to remove most contaminants, it also sends the water through an extremely tight membrane that filters particles that carbon filtration alone cannot do.

For example, if there’s lead in your water, the ultra-thin film membrane of the Antares unit will remove 95% to 98% of it. If your water has a high amount of sodium, the same ultra-thin film membrane will remove 91% to 96% of it. Sodium is not removed by normal filtration. The Antares reverse osmosis membrane, in conjunction with the carbon filtration that accompanies it, is the best technology available for the removal of sodium and the chloramine which many city water systems now use instead of chlorine.

The Antares Alkaline System also includes alkaline media that balances the pH level of the water being produced by the unit. Typically, water purified by a system of carbon filters and a membrane is acidic. Antares marries the purified water and balances the pH levels to produce alkaline purified drinking water.

Alkaline water is water that has been ionized, which means the pH level of water has been increased. Alkaline water has pH level between 8 and 10, while tap water has a pH level of 7, which is considered neutral. This process of neutralizing acids in the body helps prevent various serious ailments. EPA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) agree that the presence of lead and copper in drinking water is harmful to health, especially for children. 

Health effects of lead and copper in drinking water on adults and children are as follows:

Even low levels of lead in the blood of individuals can result in:

  • Behavior and learning problems
  • Lower IQ and hyperactivity
  • Slowed growth
  • Hearing problems
  • Anemia

In some cases, ingestion of lead can cause seizures, coma and even death. Antares, with its tankless alkaline water treatment, provides safe, great-tasting water at a very reasonable price. Antares is a complete filtration system that will, with minimal upkeep, provide a constant supply of delicious alkaline drinking water.
