The Causes of Drinking Water Contamination

Aging infrastructure, pollution and other factors have resulted in an epidemic of lead, as well as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) compounds, two of the most prevalent per- and polyfluorinated substances (PFAS) chemicals, also known as forever chemicals, in the drinking water used by millions of people. Our products provide point-of-use filtration that immediately makes drinking water cleaner and safer via the reduction of contaminants.
