PFAS and PFOS Water Filtration

Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), including perfluorooctane sulfonate acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), are chemicals that can cause significant health issues when they leak into groundwater and enter drinking water supplies. Since knowledge of this chemical’s danger is relatively new, many states and regions do not have measures to remove it from your water. If you need a PFAS solution in your home, a PFAS whole-house water filter is the best way to achieve peace of mind.

Chris Lombardo our sales tech was great. Super accommodating and made sure to answer any questions promptly whenever they came up. Chris was easy to communicate with which was appreciated. Will did a great job with the installation. He was quick and it looks great. Instant change to the water quality throughout our home.

Best water and service. We had a Pure water system placed 6 months ago to take care of all the calcium deposits in our fixtures. Now there hasn't be a single spot of calcium build up anywhere. The installation was clean and quick. The technician was very friendly and answered all my questions and concerns. We are very happy with our nice clean tasty water.

We had a fabulous experience working with Andrew G at Pure Water in Sparks, NV. He was VERY customer service oriented and explained the system we bought clearly and answered all our questions. Dillon the installer was meticulous and did a clean install. He also explained how the system worked. Andrew came out to the house after the install to make sure we were happy and answered questions. The water tastes great! We definitely recommend calling Andrew if you have any interest in improving on your water.

BEFORE PURE: Our glasses were covered with spots and foggy. Our hair sounded like wheat and skin like dried leather hide. Our ice machine created floating particles. It made our mouths dry when we brushed our teeth.AFTER PURE: Glasses are beautiful and clear after every dishwasher use. Our hair is so fluffy and our skin feels like human skin again. We drink so much water now and clearly feel the difference in our laundry too! Totally game changing all around!Thanks Luke & Jeremy for the great customer service, explaining everything and the genuine care in making our home a healthier place to live! We can't believe now that we even debated getting this! Trust us, it's worth every drop of your dollar.Tim Snell & Laura SteelmanStagecoach, NV
The gentlemen who came in were professional, helpful and very kind. We had a purified water system put in. AKA a regular water dispenser that purifies/filters the water from our water system in the building. They were clean and efficient with the work. Very much recommend this company! We are very happy with the water and the water tastes cold and fresh. Thank you!!

Nico came to our home for our assessment and quote. He was timely and extremely professional. His knowledge of the water source we are on was phenomenal and we really appreciate the time he spent educating us and reviewing our options. Not only did Nico take great care of us but then he made sure the best installer, Chris Schuth came to our home for our install. Chris showed up on time with all of the parts and tools he needed. He explained everything and took great care in installing our new water heater and water filtering system. He was so kind and efficient. This was 5 star service all around and I would recommend them to anyone! thank you Nico and Chris!!

This water system is worth every penny! I’ve been showering at the gym for months because our water was so hard and hurt my hair (blonde is difficult and expensive). Been wanting the system for so long and I am SO happy we took the leap. They make it so easy and offer financing which helped the decision as well. I am so happy to say that my hair is softer and nicer than ever and not being stripped any longer! The water pressure has improved immensely, I finally have real bubbles in my bubble bath (never foamed up before!), husband is stoked I don’t go to the gym to shower anymore, the reverse osmosis is amazing as well! I have nothing but great things to say about Luke and his team! Thank you so much for making this easy and rescuing my hair and skin! Not to mention we finally have clear and clean dishes, clean sink and shower!

Absolutely happy with Pure Water Systems! Had Chris come out and talk to me and another Chris came and installed and they were both amazing! The installer Chris went above and beyond what I expected. He even told me issues that were going on under my house that I would have never know. I highly recommend Pure, as my water tastes great and feels wonderful!

I had Pure Water Systems of Nevada install a water system and could not be happier!From the initial encounter with Nico…. helping me determine what would be the best for my home ….to installation with Adam who was efficient and fast. I had a softener installed in the garage; drinking water system under my sink; and water to the ice maker. The units fit perfect and they are compact too.I could tell the difference in my sinks, toilets, and showers to my now soft hair. My laundry also is coming out cleaner!On even more of a plus side, Nico reached out after the installation to follow up and helped me move the unit for some garage work. I could’ve not done this on my own. He worked around his schedule to make that happen and I could not appreciate it more.I appreciate this type of dedication and my hat is off to a job well done!!Thank you!

I actually can’t fuss over the whole experience enough… Chris was the gentleman who came to our home in Dayton ( on time) went over the whole process with us… he didn’t need to do a sales pitch… our water is so terrible… however he so patiently went over the entire process… Next came Jesse (on time) the gentleman to do the install… what a beautiful job he did … from letting us know what he was doing… to cutting into the marble sink countertop for the water system… just a perfect job … about 5 hours I really don’t believe he even took a break … next thing we are setting up another visit from Chris to come by and test the system to make sure all was right … Pure water system is definitely a perfect change and a much better quality of life for us … Just a great job and company…

What Are PFAS, PFOA and PFOS?

PFAS is a broad chemical classification that includes PFOA and PFOS. Although PFOA and PFOS are the most common variants of PFAS, there are nearly 5,000 other types. PFAS began to see frequent use in the 1940s. Researchers noticed that these chemicals had many useful applications, including nonstick cookware, food packaging, waterproofing and firefighting foam, leading to their widespread use in manufacturing.

Are These Chemicals Harmful?

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) discovered the potentially harmful effects of these chemicals in the early 2000s. They have linked PFAS to developmental deficiencies, cancers and thyroid issues. These substances are bioaccumulative, meaning they can build up in your system throughout your life.

Because researchers discovered the harm only recently, many people failed to dispose of products containing PFAS properly. Though PFAS are no longer commonly used in manufacturing, many products containing them are now in landfills, where they are able to access our water supply. These chemicals break down extremely slowly, meaning they present an active threat even years after disposal.

Is My Water Contaminated With PFAS, PFOA and PFOS?

Nevada has set advisories for proper PFAS levels but is still working on established standards, meaning little data exists on chemical concentrations for specific cities or water supplies. The EPA has set an advisory maximum level for PFAS at 70 parts per trillion. Many Northern Nevada homes have private well water supplies that exceed these levels. Pure Water Systems of Nevada can help you take the necessary steps to protect your water using a home water filter for PFAS.
