Ultimately, our survey revealed that Americans continue to be concerned about lead. We learned that even during a pandemic, lead remained people’s top water contaminant concern. We also learned who was most concerned about lead contamination in tap water and their reasons for concern.
Most importantly, we learned that when purchasing a water filter to protect your daily water use from lead it’s imperative to check for certifications verifying the filter will actually remove lead. Aquasana offers a wide range of water filters that are NSF and IAPMO certified to remove up to 99% of lead among other contaminants.
