The arsenic elimination system is a special system developed and field tested by The Water Shed.

The arsenic elimination system consists of two units. The first unit reacts with the different valences of arsenic to transform them to a consistent form. A special arsenic resin in the second unit removes the residual particles. All that is required to regenerate the system is salt.

The arsenic elimination system also removes other minerals including gaseous sulfur and iron. When combinations of problems exist, the arsenic elimination system is often the most economical choice. Several models are available to suit varying water chemistries.
