Get The Lead Out
You likely noticed a new banner at the top of our site ”Get The Lead Out”. It is pretty big, front and center.
Aquasana drinking systems have always removed lead from drinking water – 99%, no new news here and that is our mission – healthy, clean delicious water. Consumer awareness of lead in drinking water is now at high alert. Often a water source tests “clean”, but lead can seep into drinking water during “transit” from the source through pipes, out your water faucet, and into your glass. In Flint, cleaning agents used to treat water reacted within the pipes exposing lead and other harmful contaminants. As a result lead level spiked to unsafe levels. Lead is a cumulative toxicant that affects multiple body systems and is particularly harmful to young children. We want to raise awareness and reassure people that there is a simple way to have safe, healthy water.
All of our drinking water filters are NSF certified to remove lead; as well as, 65 other harmful contaminants. Lead has no taste, color or odor. This is why you need to invest in a water filter to make sure you are removing lead at the tap.
