Lead in drinking water is a nationwide consideration that’s made headlines recently, within the last few years. It’s also not the only concern held by people around the country. Given the number of contaminants that could be present in drinking water, it’s unsurprising that homeowners and others around the country are interested in cost-effective ways they can mitigate these risks.
Those of you reading this that are interested in a water filtration system to improve the quality of your home drinking water, consider an Everpure water system. In addition to removing lead, an Everpure water filtration system, such as one that uses H300 cartridges, can improve your drinking water quality in a number of ways.
– Chlorine: Chlorine is often added to water in order to control the growth of microbes and viruses. It kills common contaminants such as Escherichia coli and Salmonella in addition to a number of harmful viruses. The CDC suggests that chlorine concentrations of up to 4 parts per million are safe, but some individuals may be more sensitive to chlorine than others and moreover, chlorine imparts tastes and smells to water that some may consider unsavory. An H300 Everpure Water System can remove these.
– Oxidized iron: Oxidized iron in water is colorless, but when the water dries it can leave unsightly stains behind.
– Oxidized manganese: Like oxidized iron, oxidized manganese in drinking water can leave behind unpleasant stains and cause discoloration of fixtures.
– Dirt, general turbidity, and particles down to 1/50,000th of an inch: An Everpure water system that uses H300 cartridges can remove particulate matter down to 1/50,000th of an inch, restoring the clarity of the water. Dirt and general turbidity caused by it will easily be removed by the filter.
– Parasitic cysts: Harmful protist parasites, such as Giardia lamblia, Cryptosporidium parvum, and Entamoeba histolytica form resilient cysts that enable them to survive for long periods of time in nutrient sparse locations. They can also be present in untreated drinking water and are responsible for a number of deleterious diseases, such as Giardiasis or Cryptosporidiosis. An H300 water filter will remove these cysts, preventing them from entering your water supply.
– Certain VOCs: Chlorine, which is often used to treat drinking water, can react with certain dissolved organic matter in water to produce a number of VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, many of which are considered harmful. A class of common VOCs that may be present in drinking water are THMs, or trihalomethanes, which are associated with a wide range of adverse health effects.
– Mold and algae: Mold and algae are sometimes present in residential water and can be removed by a drinking water system, such as one that uses H300 cartridge.
– Lead, last but not least: Lead is the big specter hanging over drinking water since many plumbing fixtures were once made using it. That is, in fact, where plumbing got its name; from Plumbum, the Latin name for lead, a nod to the fact that pipes and water vessels were made from lead before people were aware of its toxicity. Lead causes a wide range of adverse health effects, and it is in homeowners’ best interests to use a water filtration system that can remove it.
