WHY CHOOSE ODAK?
Nationally recognized standards established for the drinking water treatment industry confirm that the most effective systems for the removal of both aesthetic and harmful contaminants are those that utilize solid carbon block filters. The ODAK densely compacted solid carbon block filter has the ability to micro-strain every molecule of water through microscopic pores. The large surface area allows the water to be in contact with the carbon for a longer period of time, providing greater adsorption of the many different chemicals, pesticides, herbicides and certain heavy metals. Contaminants with a physical size are removed when water passes through the pre-filter, which helps keep the carbon block from clogging prematurely.
• ODAK Drinking Water Systems reduce MTBE, chlorination by-products, PCBs, chloramine, pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals like lead and mercury, and many other contaminants.
• Beneficial minerals remain in the water.
• Nothing harmful is added to the water.
• Filters are to be replaced once a year, or after 750 gallons.
• Healthier, cleaner water is conveniently available right at your kitchen sink.
• Inline System can be attached to a refrigerator or instant hot dispenser.
• The countertop unit is portable and easy to move.
• ODAK water costs about 8 cents per gallon.
• There is a lifetime warranty on the stainless steel housing (provided that the filter is changed at least once a year.)
Odak Solid Carbon Block Technology: Water is forced through the pores of the densely compacted solid carbon block filter where a combination of mechanical filtration, electro- kinetic adsorption, and physical/chemical adsorption take place to reduce a wide range of contaminants. Solid Carbon Block Technology can convert chlorine to harmless chloride ions removing chlorine taste and odor problems, reduce particulate matter and a wide range of contaminants of health concerns - cysts, VOC's, trihalomethanes (THM's), heavy metals (lead, mercury) turbidity, certain pesticides, and asbestos. ODAK's Solid Carbon Block Filters do not remove healthful, naturally occurring minerals, require no electricity, and do not add salt or silver to the water. ODAK's Solid Carbon Block Filters provide refreshing, delicious, and safe drinking water.

National Primary Drinking Water Regulations
National Primary Drinking Water Regulations (NPDWRs or primary standards) are legally enforceable standards that apply to public water systems. Primary standards protect public health by limiting the levels of contaminants in drinking water.
ODAK V BOTTLED WATER
There is a perception that bottled water is "safer than tap water". However, the standards for bottled water established by the Food and Drug Administration, are in some cases less strict than the standards set by the USEPA for tap water. Individual states, not the EPA, are responsible for regulating water that is both packaged and sold within its borders. In fact, about 25% of bottled water is actually tap water that has been processed and repackaged. Bottled water is expensive. Bottled water prices average about $2.84 per gallon.
At that rate, 750 gallons of water would cost $2,132.82.
750 Gallons of Bottled Water = $2133.00 Annually
750 Gallons of 5 Gallon Bottled Water = $1282.00 Annually
750 Gallons of ODAK Sub Micron Filtered Water = $57.99 Annually
