Municipal Point-of-Entry System

Modern water treatment methods heavily depend on chemical disinfectants to safeguard against waterborne disease, preventing them from escalating into widespread health crises.

Chlorination (the primary water treatment chemical) has shown its ability to control the many water borne infectious diseases, such as cholera, typhus and dysentery, which could other wise run rampant. 

Since its introduction into water treatment, chlorination has become almost the sole method used for active disinfection of water. This predominant position has been gained because of the recognized potency and acceptance of chlorine as a germicide by public health authorities. Chlorination and chemical control of simple biological organisms have proven useful and essential but we are learning the price we pay for the benefits of chemical control.

The side effects of chlorine, bromine, aluminum, phosphates, chromates, etc. cause adverse effects on human health and the health of our world environment. ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry systems dramatically improve the quality of water by filtering out 99.5% of the chlorine, ammonia and other chemicals that may be added to the water by municipal water companies to sanitize the water.

Once the water is stripped of these chemicals, it is sanitized in a chemical-free manner through the use of copper ionization. The water is also oxygenated in the process. In addition to sanitizing the water, the ECOsmarte system protects your plumbing and plumbing fixtures by preventing minerals from forming hard scale.

Scale build-up is one of the most common reasons people buy a water system. The ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry system not only provides bottled water quality throughout your house, hot and cold, inside and out, it also increases the life of your appliances, including your hot water heater, dish washing machine, coffee maker and ice maker.

The municipal Point-of-Entry system includes one water tank with an electronic control head, two bags of filter media, an electronic controller and an ionization/oxidation chamber and requires 2-4 hours to install. The system takes up less space than a water softener and brine tank. After 30 years if a better technology to remove chemicals or eliminate a water softener existed, ECOsmarte would be selling it.

The ECOsmarte® municipal Point-of-Entry system includes one water tank equipped with an electronic control head, two bags of filter media, an electronic controller, and an ionization/oxidation chamber. Installation typically requires 2-4 hours and takes up less space compared to a conventional water softener and brine tank setup.

On the right, you'll find a yard using regular El Paso city water, while the yard on the left enjoys the benefits of oxygenated and ionized water from ECOsmarte's whole house water system. Not only does this result in a lusciously green lawn, but it also slashes water consumption by half compared to your neighbors—making a significant impact on both your curb appeal and budget.

Of course, the real game-changer is the availability of bottled mineral water quality right at your fingertips, whether it's hot or cold, indoors or outdoors. With operating costs as low as $400 for three years on city water and $700 for three years on well water, the ECOsmarte system ensures top-notch water quality throughout your entire home.

Our Point-of-Entry product line revolutionizes residential water treatment with state-of-the-art electronic ionization, chemical-free titanium oxidation, and multimedia filtration technologies. This groundbreaking ECOsafe technology sets a new standard in water quality, replacing traditional water softeners, iron filters, chemical feeders, and taste/odor filters.

By reducing or eliminating odors, tastes, coloration, staining, and scaling caused by source water, the ECOsmarte system delivers premium water quality while preserving essential minerals like copper, calcium, and magnesium vital to your health. Unlike some systems, there are no limitations on the amount of water treated, ensuring a continuous and ample supply.

Our ionization and oxygenation process safeguard your plumbing and fixtures by preventing mineral buildup and dissolving existing scale. This eliminates common plumbing equipment failures caused by scale and corrosion, extending the lifespan of appliances ranging from coffee makers to dishwashers and water heaters.

Furthermore, the ionization process creates mineral ions that are harmless to humans, plants, and animals but lethal to bacteria, algae, and certain viruses. This effectively prevents bacterial and algal growth in your plumbing when water is not in use, with ECOsmarte's copper ionization process recognized by the US EPA for its microbial benefits.

Our Point-of-Entry systems deliver water quality and volume at a cost unmatched by reverse osmosis systems, providing unparalleled bacterial protection without stripping away essential minerals. Treat all your water, hot or cold, indoors or outdoors, with minimal maintenance and no consumables for at least three years—a level of convenience and effectiveness that sets ECOsmarte apart.

Installation

ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry Systems are designed for installation by either a handy homeowner or a licensed plumber, typically taking 2-4 hours. These systems are ideally installed where the water service enters the home or facility, and it's essential to protect them from freezing temperatures.To operate, the systems require a 110-volt electrical service and a means to dispose of waste water generated during periodic backwashing of the filter media. A minimum water flow of 11 gallons per minute (GPM) ensures thorough cleaning of the filter media during the backwash cycle.It's worth noting that the water discharged during backwashing is environmentally safe and can be directed onto a lawn or into the sewer. However, it's crucial to ensure proper drainage.For added convenience, ECOsmarte can facilitate installation by a licensed plumber in most North American markets, ensuring professional setup and peace of mind.


Operation & Maintenance

ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry systems are totally automated and require no work or assistance to operate properly.Most of the maintenance is also automated.

The filter media automatically backwashes periodically based on programmable settings. The ECOsmarte filter media has a life span of 5-7 years.

The cost of replacing the filter media is approximately $300. Changing of the filter media can be performed by the homeowner or we can do it for you by simply supplying you with a new filter tank already charged with new filter media.

The ECOsmarte ionization chamber does need to be cleaned two to three times per year. The chamber can be removed by hand, cleaned and replaced in less than 10 minutes. Copper electrodes in the chamber also have a life span of 5-7 years and cost $175 to replace.

The ECOsmarte system requires no chemicals or salt to be added or filters to be replaced. It is as maintenance free as a total home water treatment system can be.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is Copper in the water safe for me?
Absolutely. The amount of copper added to your water is just enough to sanitize the water from the possibility of bacteria colonizing in the water. If you were to drink two gallons of water from your home system in a day, you would ingest less copper than what you would receive by taking a multiple vitamin.

Q: How does the ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry System work?
As water enters the filtering tanks, the contaminants and chemicals, including chlorine, in your water are filtered out. Then your water receives copper ions as it passes through the ionization chamber. The purpose of the copper ions is to provide residual bacterial protection in your waterlines so no bacteria can contaminate your water even if your water is not used very often. No musty smells on unused water lines, especially in warm water areas.

Q: Is the system easy to install?
Yes, either the mechanically-inclined homeowner or a licensed plumber can typically install the system in 2-4 hours. ECOsmarte can also arrange for the system to be installed by a licensed plumber in most areas. Many pool companies are also qualified.

Q: Is the system easy to operate and maintain?
Yes. As mentioned in the installation and operation sections, there is nothing for you to do for the system to operate properly. The filter media backwash automatically based on a schedule programmed into the Pentair controller. The only maintenance you will need to perform is to clean the ionization chamber a couple of times each year. The chamber can be removed without the use of any tools and can be cleaned in less than 15 minutes using hydrogen peroxide or any acid.

Q: What are the annual costs to operate the ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry System?
There are no annual costs to operate the system. Every 5-7 years, the filter media and the copper bars in the ionization chamber need to be replaced. The filter media can be purchased for about $400 and replacement copper bars cost $175. Cost has been estimated at less than one penny per gallon.

Q: If the ECOsmarte is such a good system, why haven’t I heard of them before?
ECOsmarte has been installing water treatment systems for over 25 years. We have over 30,000 installations worldwide. Until the last few years, we have marketed products primarily over the internet. Recently we have begun building a worldwide network of distributors, dealers and resellers. We currently have over 300 dealers in North America and the network is growing every year. Our network of factory trained installers now exceeds 1000.

Q: Why should I purchase an ECOsmarte Point-of-Entry System instead of a reverse osmosis system?
Reverse osmosis system are very expensive for treating all of the water in your house. The membranes have a very limited life and are expensive to replace. By using a reverse osmosis system for your whole house, you are filtering out the chlorine and other chemicals used for residual bacterial protection and the water in your plumbing lines will not be protected from bacterial colonization. Small reverse osmosis systems may be necessary to filter out certain materials such as sodium and fluoride from drinking water but are really not practical or cost effective for treating an entire house.

Q: How does the ECOsmarte system differ from water softeners sold by companies like Culligan, Sears and Home Depot?
Most water softeners sold by the companies mentioned add salt to your water so that the water will feel softer and reduce the scaling of the calcium. The salt is usually purchased in 50 lb. bags and needs to be added to the equipment on a regular basis. Installing a water filter and softener will not remove any chemical or prevent future contamination in the plumbing, the brine tanks or the water lines of your house.

Q: Our water smells like rotten eggs and causes orange stains on everything it touches including our clothing. Will the ECOsmarte system correct these problems?
Yes. After our technicians review the results of the water samples they receive from NTL, they will know the exact levels of each contaminant in your water. They will engineer your system with whatever filters are necessary to insure every problem with your water is addressed. If your water has arsenic or nitrate, additional tanks are furnished at NO cost by the factory.

Q: If I have other questions about the system, who can I call to discuss the system in more detail?
You can call us at 612-866-1200 and we will gladly answer any questions you may have. We are on central standard time 8:00am to 6:00pm CST Monday through Friday and 9:00am to 1:00pm on Saturdays.
