Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does the Drinkable Air AWG work?
A: Drinkable Air AWG machines extract moisture from the atmosphere through a condensation process and transform it into absolutely pure, healthy drinking water.
Q: Is the water produced from an AWG really pure and safe?
A: Yes, the water is absolutely pure, safe and clean, as well as great tasting. The water that is produced starts out cleaner as it is the vapor/humidity in the air that we breathe, rather than dirty, contaminated ground water that needs to be purified. The filtration system is extremely effective and efficient and utilizes multiple safeguards as well as Ultra Violet light to eradicate any bacteria.
Q: Is taking water from the atmosphere harmful to the environment?
A: Not at all! Water is constantly evaporating into the air. We condense humidity every day using dehumidifiers and air conditioning systems in homes, buildings and cars.. that moisture is then returned to the atmosphere when it evaporates.
Q: Can I really get pure drinking water from air that may have so many impurities in it?
A: Absolutely! The Drinkable Air EnviroGuard process of air and water filtration systems removes particulate matter smaller than .01 microns.
Q: What about bacteria or other germs?
A: The Drinkable Air EnviroGuard process utilizes Ozone (Natures Cleanser) to eliminate any micro organisms, including bacteria and viruses. Ozone has been used for over 50 years to purify water and is accepted by the United States Public Health Service as a standard methodology for water treatment. Test results of water generated from the atmosphere by Drinkable Air AWG technology has been measured and shown the water to be fresh and clean, far exceeding EPA requirements.
Q: Is it expensive to produce water with an Drinkable Air AWG?
A: The Drinkable Air atmospheric water generator is extremely efficient using minimal amounts of energy to produce water. Depending on local electricity costs, one gallon of water generated by an Drinkable Air AWG will cost about 10 U.S. pennies.
Q: Does the Drinkable Air AWG have special power requirements?
A: Drinkable Air AWG units operate on standard 110V power in the USA and Canada. The power requirements can be altered to adapt to the standards of any country in the world.
Q: What happens if the AWG reservoir is full? Will the machine overflow?
A: Our state-of-the-art Drinkable Air AWG is driven by a microcomputer control system that will stop generating water when it becomes full and if an accidental leak does occur the machine will sense the leak and turn the AWG off.
Q: Will water standing in a full reservoir get stagnant and stale?
A: Our EnviroGuard system continually pumps Ozone into the AWG reservoir, making sure the water is pure at all times.
Q: Will water produced from the air in my home or office have a funny taste or smell?
A: Absolutely not. The Drinkable Air EnviroGuard system employs special filters to remove any unpleasant tastes or odor that may be present in the air. The result is fresh and delicious drinking water in its purest form.
Q: Why do I need Drinkable Air AWG to bring me water anyway? What is wrong with the water I get from my tap?
A: Numerous articles have been written warning about the amount of impurities that are contained in public drinking water supplies as well as the vulnerability of public water supplies to terrorist attack. The only way to be absolutely certain that your drinking water is really pure and safe is to produce it yourself with an Drinkable Air AWG.
Q: What about bottled water? Isn’t that safe and pure?
A: Other articles have been published revealing that some bottled water is really only reprocessed tap water. Some government studies have shown over 30% of the bottled water tested to be unsafe for humans.
Q: Is water produced by an AWG better than bottled water?
A: Water produced by an Drinkable Air AWG is the best water on earth. Bottled water in many cases is filtered city water processed in a manufacturing plant. Other bottled water is “spring” water and there are no guarantees that it is truly pure and contaminant free.
Q: Is water from an AWG as good as the water coolers I see in offices with an inverted 5-gallon bottle on top?
A: Even if the water in the bottle is good, the cooler in many cases is the problem. If it is not cleaned and regularly maintained, bacteria and algae build up in the reservoir and the water you drink may become contaminated. And who likes to handle that 40 lb. water bottle anyway? Again, Drinkable Air AWG water is the purest water on earth.
Q: Are there any other benefits to having an Drinkable Air AWG in my home or office?
A: Yes! The Drinkable Air AWG purifies the air and also acts as a dehumidifier, plus we have units with an optional Air-Conditioner!
Q: What does pH mean for water?
A: The indicator for acidity or alkalinity is known as the pH value. A pH value of 7 means a substance is neutral, water with a pH lower than 7 is considered acidic and with a pH greater than 7 water is considered alkaline. The normal range for pH in surface water systems is 6.5 to 8.5. The range in an Drinkable Air AWG is 7.0 to 7.5
