    ‘I had the water tested for bacteria and it came back clear but our symptoms were persisting. After almost two months at the address and no answers I decided to pay the money and have further tests done on the water.

We installed a Reverse Osmosis system for our drinking water and the transformation in our daughter has been remarkable. We watched her eczema literally disappear from her body.

Nitrates were an issue that I was completely unaware of. We are now into our 3rd week of being healthy and happy’.
