We first learned about Teflon in our drinking water in 1999 from the YouTube documentary: “The Devil We Know “ and then again from the movie: “Dark Waters” based on a true story about Dupont Chemicals’ contamination of Parkersburg,W.VA.
These contaminants have been found to have adverse health effects at very low levels.
Therefore, the EPA has established a non-enforceable health advisory level of 70 parts per trillion (ppt) for the sum of PFOA and PFOS.
- According to our local water authority, they have yet to detect PFOA contaminants in our water supply. The cost to test for PFAS in water is $400 to $700.
What water filters take out PFAS?
- Water filtration units that use granular activated carbon (GAC, also called charcoal filters) or reverse osmosis (RO)can both be effective in removing the PFAS compounds that commercial labs typically analyze.
Products we offer to remove/reduce PFOA Chemicals from water ;
The Water Right UltROwater under-sink reverse osmosis system with NSF 58 certification
Whole Home Filtration
The Water Right ONE Filter with .5 micron Carbon is NSF 53 certified to remove/reduce PFOA
Other systems we carry that remove/reduce PFOA that are not specifically certified for PFOA:
Our Sierra Spring Water Maker, the Wolf Package Whole home conditioner and the Reionator Pro Ultra all carry centaur catalytic carbon and GAC carbon which are effective at removing PFOA.
