Disinfection Filter by Sky

Marathon Resources is the exclusive source for this amazing new technology in NC. The Disinfection Filter is a revolutionary new whole house water disinfection unit that works in conjunction with the Sky Whole House Water Filter to give amazing protection to your entire home.

Using the same technology used by commercial-grade disinfection units, this one has been engineered to deliver fresh, clean, tasty drinking water, no matter how far — or close — you live to civilization.

But don’t take our word for it. The media unit inside this filter is component certified by outside agencies to NSF 42 as well as NSF/ANSI 61.

This top-level quality enables us to deliver year-round protection — even when the power goes out.

You see, our system uses the Quantum Disinfection™ system. This filter uses surface charges to destroy incoming bacteria.

With the super-small footprint of our latest unit, you can install this in small homes without performing plumbing gymnastics.Welcome to the future of clean water. We built this system for our own use. We wanted a unit that would not only remove bacteria, but one that could also reduces chlorine, fluoride and nitrates. It also needed to be a compact unit. Needless to say, the engineering process was challenging.We went through multiple iterations before we settled on this design. The end result is a carefully engineered unit that uses micron-level specificity of the Quantum Disinfection™ unit to create consistent disinfection and reduction of these harmful chemicals through surface catalytic reactions.But we weren’t through. Before we could trust it to filter the water our children would be drinking, we needed to test it at the highest standard.That’s why the Sky DF went through a 2 years evaluation process. Millions of gallons were run through these use units under numerous point-of-entry situations.Today, we are proud to pour a glass of water for our kids, knowing that they are drinking some of the purest water available.
What is Quantum Disinfection?
Quantum Disinfection™ (QD) is a new technology that uses the quantum mechanic principles of electron movement to create catalytic active surfaces (positively charged) that can disintegrate any microorganism instantly, upon contact.In more detail, QD refers to (1) a technology that allows the creation of (2) new composite materials with (3) particular disinfection capacities:The QD technology uses the general principals of the “Doping” technique, recently discovered in the filed of advanced semiconductors, coupled with the high disinfection proprieties of cationic Silver; The QD media represents alumina-based ceramics (fig. & tab. here bellow) tuned with one layer of titanium dioxide (called Acceptor Support) and another layer of silver (called Active Phase). These two layers influence each other and create at the alumna surface a strong cationic filed, + 1.4 eV (called Active Surface); The QD phenomenon is related to the disintegration of the microorganisms that touched the Active Surface of the QD media. The strong cationic filed attracts and rips of the electrons from the external membranes, enzymatic layers, or DNA reproducible sequences of any microorganism that get into direct contact with the QD media.
How does Quantum Disinfection work to treat bacteria & viruses?
Obviously, the germicidal capacities of the QD media are acquired due to the presence of the silver at their surface. At the same time, besides the efforts of scientists from all over the world, the action mechanism of silver against microorganisms remains is not entirely understood. Our hypothesis for our QD silver-based product is the following:The silver at the QD surfaces is in a high cationic state (1.4 eV). This electron discharge is achieved due to the presence of the TiO2 layer which, in the QD spacial spatial arrangement, size and bonding level, influence the Ag layer as follows: the big cation Ti4+ of the TiO2 (the layer called “Acceptor Support”), attracts closer to it the electrons from the silver above (Step 1, fig.). Due to the Ag high conductivity capacities, this effect migrates through the silver aggregates up to their surfaces. As a consequence, the surface of the QD media found itself in lack of electrons and acts just like a discharged active field powerful enough to ripoff the electrons (e-) from any microorganisms with which it comes into direct contact (Step 2).Moreover, once removed for the microorganisms (MO), these are instantly released in the water, without any influence on the electron discharged field at the surface of the QD media (Step 3). This catalytic behavior induces a permanent germicidal activity ensuring that no microorganism can stay alive once in contact with Quantum Disinfection™ media. As a conclusion, the QD electron discharged field causes the entire structure of the microorganisms to collapse at the quantum level, instantly, at contact. TPC measurements confirm the bacteria (E. coli) DNA is also instantly destroyed in this electron exchange. Any microorganism that touches the Quantum Disinfection™ media ceases to exist completely.
How does the Sky DF remove bacteria from water?
The Sky Disinfection Filter removes harmful viruses and bacteria from the water coming into your home making sure your family is protected. The DF is installed inline with the pipes like a UV water filter but does not require power to operate and does not require replacement bulbs. Using Quantum Disinfection technology, the Sky DF disinfects the water removing harmful bacteria and viruses from your drinking and bath water. If you are wondering how to filter coliform bacteria or anything else from your well water, this is the answer.Usually, a municipality will issue a boil advisory when there are viruses or bacteria in your water. Boiling your water can be very tedious and time-consuming since no one wants to drink boiling water. You’ve got to wait for it to cool down. Boiling your water also only kills the harmful viruses and bacteria but it does not remove it. Think about that. Boiling it kills it but leaves it in the water. The Sky DF system kills and removes the harmful bacteria or virus from your whole home’s water supply. After the Sky DF is installed on your house, you can walk up to any faucet in your entire home and fill up a glass of bacteria and virus free water without having to boil in and cool it down.

Charlotte Drinking Water

Is Charlotte tap water safe to drink?

As Charlotte residents, we here at Marathon Resources are passionate about Charlotte drinking water. Most people don’t think twice about drinking a glass of water from their kitchen sink but the truth about what’s in your drinking water is typically more than some can stomach. Water-borne illnesses in NC drinking water are no secret. Even worse, current legal contaminant levels are not up to date with recent studies covering what is safe to consume. While municipal water treatment plants are required to monitor and treat for safe levels of more than 90 contaminants, more than 270 water contaminants have been revealed to have adverse health effects on those that consume it.

About Charlotte NC:
Charlotte NC, named after King George III wife Queen Charlotte and therefore also known as “The Queen City” or “Crown Town”, is the most populous city in the U.S. state of North Carolina. Located in the Piedmont region, it is the county seat of Mecklenburg County. Its modern city center (aptly name “Uptown” because no matter which way you walk toward independence square, you’ll be moving gently upward) is home to the Levine Museum of the New South, hands-on science displays at Discovery Place, and the NASCAR Hall of Fame. First as a railroad junction and then as a cotton mill hub, today it is one of America’s largest banking centers and one of the nation’s fastest-growing metropolitan areas.Charlotte looks like a brand new city, but there’s a lot of history here. Its roots run deep in the Old South, way back before the American Revolution. Late in the Revolution, British General Cornwallis swept into town during the 1780 Battle of Charlotte and the Battle of Kings Mountain but soon wished he hadn’t. Local sharpshooters peppered his men mercilessly and as they departed it is said that Cornwallis wrote in his diary that Charlotte was a “hornet’s nest of rebellion.” Today, the hornet and hornet’s nest are popular civic symbols.

Frequently Asked Drinking Water Questions:

What does the safe drinking water act say?

The safe drinking water act requires many actions to protect drinking water and its sources. The law was amended in 1986 and 1996 and authorizes the US EPA to set national standards for drinking water that protect against both naturally-occurring and man-made contaminants that may be found in drinking water sources. Originally, the SDWA focused primarily on treatment as the means of providing safe drinking water but the 1996 amendments recognized the need for source water protection, training, funding, and public information. The EPA has established protective drinking water standards for more than 90 contaminants but activists push that the number of contaminants monitored should be closer to 270 and that the laws are in dire need of an update.

What is the best water to drink?

While you may have a preference for what is the best water to drink, generally, there’s no one type that promises greater health benefits than the others. Different types of water, each with their own pros & cons, include tap, mineral, spring, glacier, sparkling, distilled, purified, infused, and alkaline but, so long as the water you’re drinking is clean and safe, the main focus is to make sure that you stay hydrated and to ensure you’re drinking enough water on a regular basis.

Is tap water safe to drink?

While the EPA holds that tap water is safe to drink, independent water analysts, activists, and consumer researchers hold that the water found in our tap is still far from healthy. The EPA regulates and requires treatment for more than 90 contaminants but a recent study surveyed the country’s water for more than 270 contaminants deemed unsafe at certain levels for human consumption. Aging infrastructure and outdated laws point more and more to the need for point of service water treatment systems to ensure that water used for drinking, cooking, and bathing is safe for human and animal consumption.

Where does drinking water come from?

Drinking water comes from various sources depending upon where you live. The majority of sources can be categorized as freshwater or groundwater sources. Lakes, rivers, mountain snow/ rain runoff, and natural springs make up the majority of drinking water sources.
