Real Protection from Contaminants. The EWS Spectrum is an advanced filtration appliance designed to filter all water throughout your home, providing truly healthy water to every sink and shower. All our whole home filtration appliances utilize the highest quality, highest iodine rating granular activated carbon (GAC) in order to effectively remove and reduce chlorine, chloramine, VOCs, THMs, pesticides, herbicides, pharmaceutical residues, obesogens, and more, and to assist with the problems associated with water hardness (naturally present calcium and magnesium minerals). Our filtration appliances are in use worldwide by hospitals, medical centers, health and fitness centers, military, professional athletes, and thousands of personal homes worldwide.
Healthier Home & Lifestyle. All EWS and CWL appliances are designed to prevent you and your family from drinking, absorbing, and inhaling various contaminants and carcinogenic (cancer-causing) chemicals. Enjoy chlorine-free, healthy, filtered water for your entire home – drinking, bathing, showering, pets, plants, pools, spas and plumbing. Enjoy healthier skin and hair, and delicious odor-free water from every sink. Alleviate symptoms of asthma and allergies by providing chlorine-free filtered water for showering and humidifiers.
Inhibit Water Hardness Without Salt Softening: The EWS Spectrum helps to solve problems associated with hard water (up to 500 mg/l or 30 grains) without the disadvantages of softening, salts, and chemicals. Prevents and inhibits scale build-up in pipes and water heaters, and makes it easier to wipe off and clean up water spotting. Use less soaps and detergent, and protect the warranty on your home’s appliances.
Easy to Install & Self-Maintains. Our whole home filtration appliances are hassle-free, self-cleaning, user-friendly appliances that only require a filtration media change about every 10 years (based on your local water conditions and usage). Your EWS or CWL appliance installs easily like a water heater at the main water supply line to your home. Automatic backwashing prevents bacterial build-up and provides a continuously renewed surface area for filtration (plus, the backwash water is completely safe and filtered, and may be used for plants, gardening, pools, livestock, and pets). Complete installation information comes with every unit and is available online.
The Highest Quality Possible. We are known throughout the industry for our impeccably high standards, quality materials, and American manufacturing. Your EWS Spectrum contains 85 pounds (2.5 cubic feet) of the highest grade granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration media, which has ZERO chemical additives, fillers, metal resins or metal-based media, or silver impregnation (which is silver nitrate, a pesticide). Meets or exceeds all FDA, NSF, ANSI, and California State standards and compliances.
Environmentally-Friendly & Cost-Effective. Our appliances are the environmentally-friendly, maintenance-free choice to filter and condition your water — no salts, no chemicals, no corrosive softeners, no brine discharge, no gimmicks. Replace expensive and wasteful bottled water with healthy, filtered EWS water from every sink in your home. Our tanks and parts are recyclable and our proprietary filtration media is completely compostable and biodegradable. Our advanced digital valve head requires an ordinary electric outlet and consumes only the power of a doorbell.
Protect Your Home & Appliances. Aside from thoroughly protecting you and your family from contaminants, our appliances protect your kitchen appliances, water heater(s), and bathroom fixtures from the ravages of chlorine, chloramine, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which harm fixtures, heating elements, finishes, surfaces, connections, and internal parts.
Optional: Any EWS or CWL whole home appliance may be combined with one of our softeners (preferably hot-side only) and/or ESSENTIAL sink filtration product based on customer preference or local water conditions.
Water Hardness Caution: Physical conditioning can have a limited effectiveness with water hardness up to 500mg/l or 30 grains and greater. Similar to issues with softeners and ion-exchange, conditioning can be adversely effected by abnormal levels of pH, alkalinity, and/or silica. Please consult with your sales associate or EWS, Inc. to establish proper aesthetic expectations, helpful household hints, or a combination of product and your best alternatives.

¹Based on your local water conditions and usage.
Environmental Water Systems filtration appliances are easy to install with the help of a licensed plumber. The appliance installs where your water line enters your home (often times near your water heater or in a garage).
System maintenance is simple: about every 10 years, replace the filtration media inside with or without a plumber’s assistance. It is a quick process of shutting off the water at your EWS appliance, detaching the tank from the valve head, and replacing it with your new tank (you keep the same valve head). No mess!
