You Need Help
Water - you drink and bathe in it every day. Your health depends on it. And yet, until now, you've taken it for granted, assumed it was good, or relied on those who told you it was safe. Unfortunately, it's not...
Here you are, searching the internet to learn what you can about home water purification systems and finding out that it's very confusing. Every site claims to have the best home water purification system and you don't know how to tell fact from fiction. There's this technology and that technology and high prices and low prices and you can't tell one from the other. You have no way of knowing which home water purification system you need. Perhaps you've called a local company and don't know what to make of that experience.

Whole House Water Treatment Systems and Undersink Water Filters
for city water
designed by ecologist James P McMahon
When Choosing a Whole House Water Treatment System or Under Sink Water Filter for Public Water, meaning chlorinated, you must consider the following:
If you are supplied by public water your water contains chemicals that are used to kill various microorganisms. Chlorine is a poison and when it interacts with organic material in water a number of carcinogenic byproducts produced. These are known as Trihalomethanes and Haloacetic acids. Some cities are switching to chloramine in an attempt to reduce these. Chloramine, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, is worse than chlorine, in my opinion. If you doubt me, read the articles in my water resource library. Your water may also contain regulated contaminants and a variety of unregulated contaminants that are not removed by public water systems. Hence....your water is contaminated. This is not meant as a criticism of public service agencies. They do their best for you. My point is that you do not receive and cannot expect truly healthy water from public systems.
If you have well water, skip this page and go to
In order to know which whole house water treatment system or under sink water filter to buy you have to start by looking at your local water quality report. You want to buy the water treatment system or under sink water filter that removes the contaminants in your water. Most people make a huge mistake by not doing this. Just buying a filter does not protect you! It has to be the right one for your situation.
Are you ready to solve the water issues in your home?
Here's what to do:
Obtain a copy of your city's annual water quality report, sometimes called a Consumer Confidence Report - here's how to find it: Water Quality Report - then call me and we'll discuss which whole house water treatment system or under sink water filter will achieve healthy water for your family. That is my focus: healthy water for you.
Pick up the phone and call me during the hours of
9 AM - 6 PM Mountain Time, Mon - Fri
and we'll find your water quality report together!
First determine which contaminants are in your water and which type of filtration technology will remove them. I do this by looking at the water report supplied by your local city or water company. You can do it all on your own by buying my Ultimate Guide or signing up for my free Five Steps to Healthy Water email series. Or you can call me.
Together we will look at your water report and determine which whole house water treatment system or under sink water filter will best meet your needs. I cannot make a recommendation without speaking with you.
These are some of my products which you will find in more detail on their own product pages as listed here:
Urban Defender® Whole House Water Filter:
My Urban Defender whole house water filtration system is as effective as systems sold by the major brands that cost four times as much.
To learn more about the Urban Defender please visit my whole house water treatment system page.
Or, you can request pricing and specifications here: Send me pricing and specifications for the Urban Defender.
You can combine the Urban Defender with other home water filtration options, such as specific contaminant removal, such as fluoride or arsenic, and Ultra Violet light, for more complete protection from the contaminants in your water supply. There is no better whole house water filtration system for municipal water.
Terminator Whole House System
I also sell the Terminator whole house water filter which is intended for single person households or retired couples in small homes or homes with low water use. The Terminator is far more effective than the cheap downflow without backwash or the upflow carbon filters offered by some major brands. The
Don't be fooled by the low cost whole house water treatment systems that don't backwash. Read my blog on how these companies are deceiving you: They're junk. You get what you pay for.
Ask me why a downflow system with backwash is better than the upflow carbon filters which cost less.
“My Urban Defender whole house water filter has changed my life. I love it!”
Aileen Gee, Falmouth, MA
"...not only is our water clean, fresh and smooth tasting but it even feels better. Beyond the physical attributes supporting the quality of our new water, there exists a real sense of confidence and peace of mind in knowing that the water we consume and absorb in a variety of ways each and every day is pure and healthful. Your recommendation of The Urban Defender whole house water treatment system along with the polishing affect of the triple water filtration Kitchen Defender under sink water filter really seems to fit the bill."
John Ciulla; Airmont, NY
"The best tasting water I've ever had. It's way better than any bottled water.
Jim has provided impeccable service. His genuine interest in the quality and taste of our water is reassuring. Additionally, Jim has continued to follow through to check on our service needs and has responded quickly to all of our requests. My wife and I give him our very highest recommendation."

Kitchen Defender® Under Sink Water Filter:
There is no better under sink water than my Kitchen Defender - effective yet affordable. Learn more about it on my kitchen water filter page.
Or, to request specific product information and pricing request the information here: Kitchen Defender Water Filter
Independent testing showed total removal of chloramine, chlorine byproducts, and fluoride. Other tests have shown only a reduction of fluoride, which depends entirely on local water chemistry.
The Kitchen Defender water filter is also available with UV light and in a commercial version for use in restaurants, hotels, and businesses.
The Kitchen Defender produces high quality drinking water that is reminiscent of a natural spring water.
"Dear James, Thank you for your prompt attention and service in my recent purchase of a water filter. I am in the customer service profession, so it is especially nice to work with someone who understands what it means to ‘exceed expectations’. You certainly did that for me. I appreciate the knowledge and help you provided me in my unique water situation and could not be more thrilled with the performance of the unit you had custom built for me. I am looking forward to sending all my friends and clients your way as I truly believe pure drinking water is the #1 foundation for good health. Warmest regards,"
Meredith Martin; San Francisco, CA
"I just had my Kitchen Defender under sink water filter installed. It's FANTASTIC! After flushing the system for a good 20+ minutes I am excited to say I LOVE THIS WATER. It is hard to believe that the nasty county water was transformable into such great tasting water. I did a lot of research on choosing the proper water system for my home and really appreciate your approach. It makes sense to buy a system that targets the specific problems of my water rather than a generic system. Thank you for all of your help and fantastic customer service."
Pam Velez, Tampa, FL
Just a note to let you know we got the new carbon filter for our Kitchen Defender. We already had the calcite replacement and I installed them both today with no problems. You had asked about the Ph of the water. I tested it before the replacement and it measured at 6.8. After it tested at 7.6 which is the highest the test kit I have can measure. The water now tastes great again. Thanks.
Duane Orlaske, Windsor, CT
I've been meaning to write and let you know that the water tastes great! The difference in the water is just amazing! We are so happy with the Kitchen Defender under sink water filter, and showers are awesome without feeling like you're in an indoor swimming pool (with the chlorine smell, I mean). Thanks again for all your help! Best wishes,
Monica Ely, Lafayette, CO

Sweetwater's Custom Reverse Osmosis System and Water Purifier:
I sell a 5 stage custom Reverse Osmosis water purifier that I recommend for removing nitrates, removal of some metals including chromium 6, fluoride, arsenic, radioactive metals, and unregulated pharmaceuticals in drinking water.
You may learn more about it on my reverse osmosis system and water purifier page.
Many people object to the use of reverse osmosis because it removes the natural minerals in water along with the contaminants. I invite you to read my article: 'Minerals In Water' to learn why you may need a reverse osmosis system. Really, you have to remove these contaminants and the minerals can be replaced through diet.

"Before getting a whole house water treatment system from Jim, I used a pitcher water filter and would occasionally drink tap water. With my new RO water purifier from Sweetwater, I fill bottles to carry with me wherever I go and LOVE the water! I’m HOOKED on pure clean water and my body can feel the difference!"
Stephen Pierce, Monmouth, OR
"Jim -we did the “water test” and it was a no-contest winner for the RO water! The Urban Defender whole house water filter does a good job but the RO water purifier takes it up another notch to truly, bottled water quality, or should I say better than bottled water?"
Craig Umphrey, Terre Haute, IN
In some cities a whole house water treatment system is all you need. In others, the contaminants in your water require that you have both a whole house water filter and a under sink water filter or water purifier. If you must prioritize for budget reasons, then I suggest you start with the kitchen under sink filter. Learn more by emailing me for this short discussion:
Do you need a Kitchen Water Purifier or Whole House Water Filter or both?
I urge anyone considering a kitchen under sink water filter to also use a showerhead filter that will remove chlorine. Half of your chlorine consumption each day is in the shower as chlorine is absorbed by your skin and inhaled as it turns to gas. I sell a very simple, inexpensive, and highly effective shower filter. It uses 14 ounces of KDF to remove chlorine and quartz crystals to add negative ions. Pricing is $50. I don't sell shower filters unless I sell a kitchen system also. And remember this: shower filters only remove chlorine. They do not remove the carcinogenic byproducts of chlorination.
Equipment for Specific Issues
For people who have a specific home water filtration problem they wish to solve, I provide a full line of high quality water treatment systems to remove iron, manganese, hydrogen sulfide odors, neutralize acid water by raising pH, Ultra Violet light for bacterial contamination, arsenic, mercury, nitrate, fluoride or other specific contaminant removal.
You can learn more about many of these water treatment systems on my well water treatment page. I also have a wide variety of water filtration, sediment filters and water softeners.
If you're thinking of buying a water softener, email me for a tip on how to buy the right softener for your needs: How to buy the right water softener or call me and I'll sell you the right one.
The systems I sell uses natural methods to remove specific contaminants. Call me for product details, specifications, and cost. In order to help you with these products we must be able to discuss the details of your water quality. If you have a well, see my well water treatment page. If you have a special water filtration problem, call me to discuss your needs. I also have extensive technical support backing me up so we can be sure to provide you with the whole hose water treatment system that will meet your needs.
Energy and Holistic or Natural Water
For those clients who are interested in a holistic approach and the concept of revitalized or restructured water, I carry the Water Revitalizer. I use this product in my home. The concept behind its design is based on the theories of Viktor Schauberger, an Austrian whose work was published in 1932 and 1933. His theories maintain that water holds an energy in its natural state. If you've ever sat and watched the water in a stream, perhaps you'll agree...the water swirls and turns, always shifting in a circular motion. Schauberger suggests that this natural flow form is eliminated by putting water in pipes and treatment with chemicals such as chlorine. Water with this natural energy is thought by some to be more healthy.
Reading Your Water Report
OK, so I've told you to obtain your water report and perhaps you've done so and you have no idea what it means. You're welcome to call for my free 20 minute phone consultation to figure out what to do. Or, if you plan to purchase equipment from someone else but want my opinion of what to buy, you can pay my consultation fee of $150 for a city water report. (Purchase it here: Water Consultation) and we'll make sure you buy the right system. And for those who want a third option you can listen to a recorded call of me interpreting the Durham, NC water report for a customer here: Reading Your Water Report
NOTE: You are most welcome to email a copy of your water report to me. Be sure to follow up with a phone call so that we may review it together. I will gladly go over it and tell you which whole house water treatment system or under sink water filter I recommend specifically and what they cost. I do not analyze water reports by email as I need additional information from you in order to make a recommendation.
You can email your report to me at
Installation and Service
I work with clients across the country. I represent a variety of manufacturers and assemble custom water treatment systems when appropriate. We'll look at your water report and determine what you need. I won't sell you the wrong product. A licensed plumber can install the equipment I sell. I recommend that you work consistently with one plumber and use that person for all your system maintenance. If there is ever a problem with any of the home water treatment system that I sell you, then I'll work with that plumber and you to resolve it, taking advantage of the manufacturer warranties. This is precisely the same approach that you would use to deal with a water heater or any other fixture in your home.
I provide phone support during installation. I will make myself available to assist you and your plumber and I am most certainly interested and available to aid you should any equipment problems develop in the future. The equipment I sell is intentionally straightforward and not inclined toward operational failure.
Perhaps the number one reason people choose to do business with me is because of my approach. I sell high quality effective water treatment systems to people who want healthy water for their family. Sometimes people still feel that dealing with someone locally can provide them with better product support. It has been my experience that your local provider will often sell you the wrong product for your needs and service will be by someone who knows nothing about the home water filtration system you bought. To think that a local provider is a better choice is truly an illusion. It might have been true at some time in the past, but not anymore. If you find a local person who can provide an equal product and service, use him.
“I am 100% satisfied with your service. A local person would not have done as much. I have to admit that I was concerned, ordering from a person online, giving you my credit card, that the product would show up at all. When it did I could see that the construction of the product is good. The aluminum housing is strong and durable, the UV cylinder is stainless steel, the plastic is schedule 80…this unit will last for a long time. I’m pleased all the way around”
Joe Provenzano, Chalmette, LA
Call me and we'll review your water report and determine what you need. I don't charge for this.
I do charge if you want to call up and use me to provide a second opinion (like going to a second doctor before surgery). I provide a one time consultation by phone for $150. You may find this extremely useful when you are reviewing equipment proposals from local companies. You may ask me questions about your water and if I can help you or direct you to an answer I will.
If you then purchase your whole house water treatment system from me I will deduct this fee from your purchase price. You may purchase a consultation here:
Purchase the consultation and then call or email me to set up an appointment.
I am also available to solve problems or design water treatment systems for you on a consulting basis. This might be appropriate in the case of problematic water supplies or commercial applications. My fee is $150 per hour with a four hour minimum. This is more typical with private well water or unique commercial appliactions. Call if you'd like to discuss this.
"Jim shows a remarkable interest in improving our water - anybody's water.
He researched my water filtration problem through his own and outside resources and helped me determine what was wrong with my water and what was needed to improve the quality.
Thanks for your help, Jim "
Mary Leathers; Pine Grove, CA
All sales are by phone. I maintain personal contact with every customer. That way I can be certain that you are ordering the correct product. If you want to buy something online, you've come to the wrong place.
The water treatment systems I sell provide the most thorough level of contaminant removal available, using proven technologies. Whatever your situation: appropriately filtered, clean, healthy water is available to you for just pennies a day. You may obtain complete information on pricing and specifications for each of the systems above by emailing me using the appropriate link above.

Experience Natural Vortex Water
in Your Home
For those individuals looking to go beyond purification and who are open to the possibility that water conveys energy, I carry the Original Water Revitalizer. Installed after one of my whole house water purification systems - the tandem brings you truly remarkable water.
Principles Of the Original Water Revitalizer
The theory behind the principles of the water revitalizer originate with a fellow by the name of Viktor Schauberger, an Austrian whose work was published in 1932 and 1933. His work can be reviewed in "The Water Wizard: The Extraordinary Properties of Natural Water". As I understand his point, Schauberger claims that water in a natural state, as in a stream flowing down a hill, contains a natural vortex energy, due in no small part to the way that it flows in its natural environment. All of you have seen water flow in a stream and I'm sure you've seen the way water shimmers as it flows.
This photo illustrates water swirling around a rock with an energy vortex in a mountain river:
This theory that water contains a natural energy vortex, a 'living water', makes sense to me. It makes sense that water in a stream or spring is, in its original unpolluted form, healthy 'living' water that we as inhabitants of that environment originally adapted to. It also makes sense to me that we remove this natural energy from water as we put it in pipes, confining it and depriving it of its ability to move or flow. Recall the scene from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid where the mine operator asked the Kid to shoot without letting him draw is gun as he was accustomed to. He couldn't do it. Schauberger is saying that we've modified the natural health of our water by the way we convey it and because of this it does not function naturally when we use it: we've deprived it of it's natural energy and modified its molecular structure.
As a scientist, I can't say whether Schauberger's theories are correct or not. As an ecologist and naturalist, I can appreciate the notion that water in the natural environment carries an energy vortex that is subsequently lost when that water is conveyed through pipes and no longer allowed to flow naturally. As I sit at my desk and talk to each one of you on the phone when you call, I am watching my own section of the Santa Clara flow past. The river's constant swirling motion keeps me rooted in remembering that we all hope to achieve healthy, natural water. I also understand that this is a difficult concept to convey or prove.
It is my opinion that we are only beginning to understand the natural properties of water and that healthy water is a complex issue.
The Original Water Revitalizer, by using the power of vortex energy fields via "flow form dynamics", is said to transform your water by restoring this original energy. The manufacturer claims that the vortex energy is created by a double spiral flow form within the pipe that restores this natural energy in your water. Another important claim is a significant increase in the amount of dissolved oxygen in the water. The Water Revitalizer is constructed based upon the principals described and illustrated by Schauberger.
According to the manufacturer, normal tap water, in most cases, shows low frequencies because it has been damaged. I do know that some natural mineral waters resonate at a high frequency and that these vary from different sources. Even high quality water at the source loses its natural energy and molecular crystalline structure as it is conveyed through pipes from its source to your home. I also know that revitalized water demonstrates this higher frequency.
The idea of water containing energy or being made up of a particular crystalline shaped molecular structure is one that is familiar to us all. We've all witnessed the crystalline structure of snowflakes. It has also been shown that healthy water is molecularly distinct from polluted water.
The water revitalizer is said to restore the natural energy of water by running it through a double spiral process that imparts a vortex flow form, or twist. It really is quite fascinating. What I am noticing so far is that deposition or scale formation from water hardness is decreased substantially and my plants seem to be thriving.
Through the revitalizing process using the OWR, your water's frequency is said to be raised to a level which is natural for water. This process is said to be experienced as being very different and the water is experienced as being extremely light when swallowed.
This is the 3/4 inch whole house Original Water Revitalizer in copper:
In the above photo part of the pipe is removed to show you a portion of the inside of the OWR. When you order the OWR it will of course be intact; but you will still be able to see the insert in each end of the pipe. The Whole House OWR comes in 3/4 and 1 inch copper. Larger sizes are also available for commercial use. Here's a look at the undersink kitchen model:
Kitchen OWR with Fittings
You can add the kitchen model to my Kitchen Defender series to produce a very nice water.
I must say that I am intrigued by this concept of restoring water's natural frequencies. For that reason I am offering the OWR as an add on to install after my whole house purification system, thus first cleansing your water and then 'energizing' it with the OWR. I've had some customers tell me that my endorsement sounds tepid or luke warm at best. On the contrary, I like and recommend this product. But I'm not going to tell you that it performs in ways that I can't verify.
I have installed the OWR in my home (installed 1-4-05). What I noticed immediately is that the water coming from my faucets and shower swirls, it flows just as it does in the revitalizer itself. And if I look closely I can see a shimmer to it, almost a dance, as in a reflection of light that was not there before. I'm also noticing a definite decrease in hard water deposition. My customers who have the Revitalizer always notice bubbles when they fill a glass which then immediately dissipate.
Whether or not the OWR makes your water more healthy, or more available to your cells, or does anything else, I do not know. The following are Kirlian photographs of the same water source, before and after being revitalized by the OWR.
Both of these waters are from the same source!

"The improved energy in revitalized water causes a dramatic increase in the quality of your water."
Revitalized tap water
Interesting. It looks energetic, doesn't it?
My experience of this device in my own home is very positive. My curiosity is piqued. I'm intrigued and look forward to experiencing this water over time.
This site discusses a high school student's experiments comparing revitalized and ordinary tap water. I provide it to you because it does demonstrate a change in the condition of the water:
For those who are seeking a holistic approach to healthy water, I recommend installation of the revitalizer in conjunction with and immediately after my whole house or kitchen purification systems. The two in tandem will purify and energize your water. That's what I'm drinking. The result is awesome and delightful!
If you doubt me, stop by and I'll let you taste it and take a shower!
The Water Revitalizer comes in a variety of sizes.

Kitchen Water Filter and Reverse Osmosis System
designed by ecologist James P McMahon
When I first started in this business, back in 2002, people like you kept asking me for a kitchen water filter that removed all harmful chemicals, kept the healthy minerals, and removed fluoride, so I designed the Kitchen Defender. I believe it is the best drinking water filter in the marketplace.
As I gained experience I realized that you can't just buy a water filter online or in a store and be sure you're actually getting the right one to achieve a goal of drinking healthy water...you have to learn what's in your water first and then buy the product that removes those contaminants. So I found a really good reverse osmosis system and modified it to be even more effective. The RO I sell is better than systems that cost three times as much.
Now I sell both, depending entirely on your needs...if you buy what I suggest you will have healthy water...

How can I claim that the Kitchen Defender is the best kitchen water filter?
First...because I speak with every customer by phone and actually look at your water quality report, review the contaminants present, and provide the product that will remove those contaminants from your water. If you don't do that you can't possibly know whether you're buying the best product for your situation...or not. Probably not. Pr Pr
"I just had my Kitchen Defender installed. It's FANTASTIC! After flushing the system I am excited to say I LOVE THIS WATER. It is hard to believe that the nasty county water was transformable into such great tasting water. I did a lot of research on choosing the proper water system for my home and really appreciate your approach. It makes sense to buy a drinking water filter that targets the specific problems of my water rather than a generic system. Thank you for all of your help and fantastic customer service."

Second....you won't find a shopping cart on this website. You call me to discuss your situation and we make absolutely sure you're getting the system that you need. You tell me your goals and I'll tell you whether a kitchen water filter or reverse osmosis system will meet those goals. I'll tell you what I would buy if I was drinking your water. The focus of my work is your health. TheThe
The water tastes so much better than provided by my old filtration system. After installation of the Kitchen Defender, my water is clear, smells fresh, is nicely aerated with tiny bubbles, and is quite good. It's still not so "sweet" as the best mountain waters of my memories (Ah... the summit at Lassen State Park in No. California -- I hated to leave that spigot on the roadside!)

Do you want the very best drinking water filter?
The answer is complicated. What you need depends on what contaminants are in your water to begin with. I refer you to my discussion on that topic here, but if your water supply is clean enough that a kitchen water filter can remove the contaminants then my Kitchen Defender is superior to others on the market. It uses four separate technologies in three stages to provide you the most complete protection available: removing chlorine, chloramine, all chlorine byproducts, reducing or removing fluoride and arsenic, and providing a 1 micron sediment barrier.
The 3 stage Kitchen Defender: $348. plus shipping. Kit includes adapters and faucet.

Third, I can custom assemble the Kitchen Defender to remove the contaminants in YOUR water.
For the most part the 3 stage Kitchen Defender is ideal for city water. However in some cases the water calls for different treatment and it can be modified accordingly. One benefit of using Sweetwater's Kitchen Defender is knowing that you're using the best drinking water filter for the purpose of making your water healthy.
Some contaminants cannot be removed by any drinking water filter and may require a reverse osmosis system, which provides more thorough purification.
The point is: we don't know until we look at your water report. That's why we talk.
Please watch this short video which clearly demonstrates that chlorine is absorbed by your body when you drink unfiltered tap water:
“Everyone in our family likes your Kitchen Defender drinking water filter. It tastes better than Poland Spring bottled water (much better). I like the system. It has a nice flow. I’ve had other systems that were slow and the water warm. This is a very good system. The water is very nice.”

Fourth, one of the first things I look at when reviewing your water report is the source of your water. If your water comes from a river and there are cities upstream of where you live then I will suggest you use my custom reverse osmosis system - due to the presence of extremely dangerous unregulated contaminants. These will not be listed in your water report because EPA does not yet regulate them. Please feel free to read this news story by the Associated Press in which drugs from upstream cities are present in the water of 43 million Americans:
If your goal is to provide healthy water for your family then we must remove what the city has added as well as any unregulated contaminants if they are present. Only reverse osmosis will remove these. You may read more about that here. I also recommend my reverse osmosis system for water with high total dissolved solids, nitrates, sulfates, arsenic, radioactive metals, hexavalent chromium and unregulated contaminants such as pharmaceuticals.

My custom reverse osmosis system for city water sells for $469.
I customize my reverse osmosis system to ionize the water, create an anti-bacterial environment inside the system and a final stage to raise the pH making it slightly alkaline. Other options are also available including UV light, arsenic removal, and removal of high dissolved solids.
So....if you work with me we will transform your water and make it a vibrant source of hydration for your healthy lifestyle.
There are numerous online stores where you can buy the wrong product. No one else takes the time to look at your water report and make a recommendation. Using my Kitchen Defender or custom reverse osmosis system guarantees healthy water for your family.
"I can’t believe the difference in the water since I installed your Kitchen Defender, it actually tastes good, I have never noticed that kind of difference in any other filters I had over the years. Thank you."

"Jim, I was about to email you earlier but guests came by. David finished the installation in about 10 minutes. I flushed it out as you instructed. And man, does that water taste good. It tastes like WATER, not Clorox! Thank you again for all your help and for helping provide healthy water for my husband and me.
