Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 28, 2012
Water in the Pittsburgh region has been found to contain high levels of potentially dangerous pollutants, including trihalomethane, a contaminant related to natural gas production that is associated with serious disease. Trihalomethanes form during the water treatment process when chlorine reacts with organic matter found in the water. A recent Water Filtration Sweepstakes launched by Gillece gives Pittsburgh area customers and residents the chance to receive a free Whole House Water Filter for their home to reduce the presence of such contaminants.
Poor water quality has been of grave concern across the country and in Pittsburgh, especially, where pollutant levels are some of the highest. There is also a possible presence of up to 60,000 other chemicals in drinking water, including chlorine and hydrogen sulfide. Water can become polluted by chemicals and disinfection byproducts when water from the main supply is treated before being delivered to area residences.
Gillece Services has remained aware of the water quality in Pittsburgh and has educated its customers about the potential dangers related to their drinking water. Gillece Water Quality Services provides and installs water quality products, including filtration systems and purifiers, to address water issues in customers’ homes across the Southwestern Pa region. The Whole House Water Filter provided through the sweepstakes reduces or removes chlorine and other chemical contaminants in water throughout an entire home, through the use of Granular Activated Carbon.
While Pittsburgh takes steps toward reducing contaminants in the water, Gillece continues to raise awareness about drinking water quality and water quality in general and the effects it may have on a person’s health, their family’s health, and their home. Water quality products provided by Gillece address drinking water and hard water issues, both of which may have negative consequences. Whole House Filters, Water Softeners, and Reverse Osmosis Systems work to address different water quality problems and may benefit a household based on the specific area of concern.
Gillece Water Quality Services is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year to residents in seven Southwestern Pa counties: Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Washington, and Westmoreland.
