Eco-Friendly RWI Base Water

Because it only takes about a 1,000 years to biodegrade plastic.

No doubt about it – plastic water bottles are a serious problem. Every day, over 40 million plastic water bottles are tossed in the garbage. These bottles are NOT recycled – but tossed out as refuge.

These bottles clog our landfills – for thousands of years. Each plastic water bottle will take over 1,000 years to biodegrade. (Sources: MSNBC and the Container Recycling Institute)

Another frightening statistic is that plastic water bottles are made from petroleum and it takes over 1.5 million barrels to produce the water bottles consumed in the U.S. in one year. That’s enough petroleum to fuel some 100,000 U.S. cars for an entire year!

With a RWI Base Water Drinking Water Purification System, you can finally kick the plastic water bottle habit. If everyone did this, the reduction in greenhouse gas house emissions (produced by plastic water bottle production), clogged landfills and debris in neighborhood waste would be astounding.

Reduce the salt in our wastewater systems.

You know that in Camp Pendleton, hard water is a serious problem — in fact it is the most common water quality problem in the U.S.

Your home requires a water softener system to help alleviate the scale build up and reduce the damage hard water can inflict. On Camp Pendleton, the only approved form of water softener system allowed is a Portable Exchange Tank System like the one offered by RWI Base Water.

This system is environmentally superior to a typical water softener because this service provides the same benefits of a water softener but uses no salt in the home. Rather regeneration takes place in a properly-designed facility and monitored in a centralized regeneration facility by trained technicians.

A typical softener discharges 600-2,000 pounds of salt each year (source: Central Arizona Salinity Study). RWI Base Water’s Soft Water Exchange Tank Service dramatically reduces salt discharge into the waste water system. Also, the tanks require no electricity in the home and no drain because a RWI Base Water technician simply exchanges the tank when needed.

When it comes to your water, RWI Base Water delivers.
