Lead in Water


remove lead from waterSource of Lead in Water: Lead is a toxic metal found in natural deposits, plumbing and water service lines. People can also be exposed to lead through paint chips or dust in older homes, particularly those built before 1978. Lead (Pb) is rarely found in source water. When it is, its presence usually indicates water contamination from industrial waste and pollution. Instead, lead in drinking water is primarily from the corrosion of the lead solder used to put together copper piping or from brass and chrome faucets and fittings. These may leach lead because of age or due to some other abrasive contaminant in the water flowing through them. Several laws have been enacted to reduce the use of lead in these products, including a new nation-wide one set to go into effect in January 2014.

Symptoms of Lead: Lead is perhaps most dangerous for infants and children. When exposed to lead in the early years, children can have permanent physical and mental developmental delays including slowed growth, lower IQ, and shorter attention spans. Adults can have kidney damage, a higher risk of miscarriage in women, and changes to the nervous system. 

Filtration Solutions for Lead: The EPA considers lead to be so toxic that the Maximum Contaminant Level is 0ppm. However, the EPA only regulates municipal water treatment plants, not private wells. If you are concerned about the presence of lead in your water, have it tested. The best options for reducing lead in drinking water are reverse osmosis systems and distillers. Reverse osmosis systems can remove 94 to 98% of the lead in drinking water at the point-of-use. Water distillers will also remove the lead from drinking water. An ultrafiltration system rated for lead removal can also be an easier, more economical choice.
