Widespread contamination with drinking water is a pattern happening all across the USA, and in reports from CBS news, many families are finding their children contaminated in school environments. In a report on Ohio school drinking fountains, it was discovered the water had over 100 times the EPA acceptable level of lead in drinking water.
Lead is a destructive neurotoxin and it can affect the health of a child as well as change developmental patterns. Any level of exposure of lead can be a toxic hazard and it can change the pattern of growth, improve hyperactivity, lead to hearing loss, tiredness, stomach and headaches and more.
Lead can enter into the water supply in a few ways such as through faucets, older piping, fixtures and more. Fast removal of the parts which can cause lead poisoning or problems with lead can be a solution well worth investing in.
Removing lead from your drinking water comes down to choosing filters that work fast. Most filters can eliminate lead, chlorine, chloramine and a series of other contaminants from the water. Choosing solutions like a tap water filter or a whole home water filter can improve your safety and the safety of your children too.
With a water filter, you can remove 99.95 percent of all lead and contaminants and remove serious items like Giardia from the water supply. These are items that can be difficult to remove in a treatment plant, and they are very resistant to chlorine.
We strongly encourage you and your family to consider water testing and to take a look at making a change in your drinking water configuration today. We can make sure you can make a change and prevent lead contaminated water from entering your home.
