Everyday there are more and more sites in Michigan where high Lead levels have been found in the water. This is only going to get worse as more testing is being done. The awareness of PFAS, Lead, Nitrite, Iron, Arsenic and Nitrate contamination has created a greater awareness of water quality here in Michigan.
Once Lead is exposed to the ground it then starts to make its way into the ground water where it never goes away. It continues to contaminate the surface water while getting deeper and deeper until it makes it to the Aquifer where it then gets into homes through their wells. Lead has been proven to create many heath issues including several types of cancer.
If Lead has been found in your area you will likely have it in your water. It may not show up right away but as the underground water aquifers are connected, it will most likely with time get to your well. We offer the Best Whole House Reverse Osmosis system for nearly complete removal of the Lead from your water, not just your drinking water. Should you be bathing in a toxic chemical? Should you be cooking with Toxic Chemicals? If your water has toxic chemicals in it, skin contact is not recommended. Absorbing chemicals through your skin is just as bad as drinking them.
Our system will remove the toxic chemicals from your water bringing the levels down to nearly ZERO. There is NO other single product sold today that can come even close to the level of purity that our system produces. It gives you Really, Really, Really Clean Water!!
Our system uses new innovative proprietary products that have been found through a 3rd party independent testing lab to have the best rejection rate of toxic chemicals in the industry. The system has a very small foot print so it does not take over your whole basement.
Our Team of Professionals are traveling to all areas in Michigan testing water nearly every day, so please let us test yours.
What is lead?
Lead is a naturally occurring bluish-gray metal found in small amounts on the earth’s outer layer. Lead can be found in all parts of our environment. Much of it comes from human activities including burning fossil fuels, mining, and manufacturing.
Lead is found in many different materials. It can still be found in lead-based paint, batteries, ammunition, metal products such as solder and pipes, and devices to shield X-rays. Because of health concerns, the amount of lead found in gasoline, paints and ceramic products, caulking, and pipe solder has been reduced in recent years. As a result, the amount of lead in our blood now is much less than it was 30 years ago.
Where and how does lead get into water?
Lead rarely occurs naturally in water; it usually gets into the water from the delivery system. Lead pipes are the main contributor to high lead levels in tap water. Other sources include parts of the water delivery system such as lead solder used to join copper pipes, brass in faucets, coolers, and valves. Although brass usually contains low lead levels, the lead can still dissolve into the water, especially when the fixtures are new. Private wells more than 20 years old may contain lead in the “packer” element that is used to help seal the well above the well screen. Some brands of older submersible pumps used in wells may also contain leaded-brass components. Corrosion of pipes and fixture parts can cause the lead to get into tap water.
How can I find out whether there is lead in my water?
If you suspect a problem and your water comes from your well, you may contact us and we would be happy to come out and give you a free water test.
How do I remove lead from my water?
First, try to identify and remove the lead source. If you have a private well, check both the well and the pump for potential lead sources. A licensed well water contractor can help you determine if any of the well components are a source of lead.
Heating or boiling your water will not remove lead. Because some of the water evaporates during the boiling process, the lead concentration of the water can actually increase slightly as the water is boiled.
If it is not possible or cost-effective to remove the lead source, flushing the water system before using the water for drinking or cooking may be an option. Any time a particular faucet has not been used for several hours (approximately 6 or more), you can flush the system by running the water for about 1-2 minutes or until the water becomes as cold as it will get. Flush each faucet individually before using the water for drinking or cooking. You can use the water flushed from the tap to water plants, wash dishes or clothing, or clean. Avoid cooking with or drinking hot tap water because hot water dissolves lead more readily than cold water does. Do not use hot tap water to make cereals, drinks or mix baby formula. You may draw cold water after flushing the tap and then heat it if needed.
You may wish to consider water treatment methods such as reverse osmosis, distillation, and carbon filters specially designed to remove lead. Typically these methods are used to treat water at only one faucet, however our system treats ALL your water. Remember to have your well water tested regularly, at least once a year, to make sure the problem is controlled.
