Lead, Cyst, & PFOA/PFOS Removal From Your Family’s Water With One Efficient System

Water in our area has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

 Eighteen million Americans live in communities where the water systems are in violation of the law. As a mater of face, the federal agency in charge of making sure those systems are safe not only know these issues exist, they’ve done little to stop them according to a information provided by CNN which cites multiple sources and water experts.

Our goal is not to scare anyone into getting water treatment, however, educating our local community about water quality is a top priority. We’ve worked with many local families to improve their water and to provide peace-of-mind knowing the water they drink and bathe in is free of harmful contaminants.

 

Our Solution:

Tri-County Water provides a unique system, the Pioneer™, to successfully remove these chemicals and is installed where the water line enters your home or business.

This system has been tested and third-party certified as required by the NSF (National Sanitation Foundation)/ANSI p473 standard for PFOA/PFOS, along with NSF/ANSI 53 standard for the reduction of lead and cyst. 

The chemicals Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), also known as C8, and Perfluorooctane Sulfonic acid (PFOS) are bio-permanent, resistant to direct oxidation, and do not break down naturally in the environment or the human body. Studies suggest that exposure to these chemicals may lead to cancer.

The Pioneer™ filtration system contains a well-designed nominal 0.5-micron filter to remove BOTH chemicals along with BOTH forms of lead (soluble and particulate) from your house in a single filter. It is the first of its kind whole-house lead, cyst, & PFOA/PFOS removal system, providing safe drinking water throughout your entire home.

What is PFAS?

PFAS (polyfluoroalkyl substances) are synthetic organofluorine chemical compounds that have multiple fluorine atoms attached to an alkyl chain. They are a group of man-made chemicals that don’t break down and can accumulate over time. There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects.

What are PFAS chemicals?

Most notably, PFAS chemicals include PFOA, PFOS, & GenX. According to OECD, there are at least 4730 different PFASs.

What are PFAS used for?

PFAS are used for creating stain and water repellent fabrics, nonstick products (e.g., Teflon), polishes, waxes, paints, cleaning products, and fire-fighting foams.

How to filter PFAS out of water?

In general, PFAS resist most conventional chemical treatment technologies employed by local water municipalities. The strongest proven technologies to filter PFAS out of water include granular activated carbon absorption, ion exchange resins, and reverse osmosis.

What does PFAS do to your body?

Exposure to PFAS may result in negative health effects to your body. Some identified by the EPA include: Developmental effects to fetuses during pregnancy or to breastfed infants Developmental effects to children Testicular or kidney cancer Liver damage Immune effects (antibody production and immunity) Thyroid effects Cholesterol changes

How to test for PFAS?

To test for PFAS, contact your state for a list of laboratories that are certified to test for PFAS using EPA Method 537. To search online for EPA Certified Labs for drinking water testing, go to the EPA’s website.
