Lead Water Filters

Lead water filters should be used any time lead is found in residential water. Having lead in the body can cause serious damage to the brain, kidneys and nervous system. The most practical way to remove lead from the whole house water is with a traditional water softener, followed by a reverse osmosis drinking water system at your kitchen sink.

*Harmful Lead Found in Chicago Tap Water*
High amounts of lead have just been found in Chicago. This is according to most national news outlets. It has been featured recently on all the major news channels. Most people will remember the reporting on children in Flint MI being exposed to massive amounts of lead as well.
Now it is being reported that most cities, both large and small, throughout the United States are contaminated with lead. Not to mention the recent report on micro plastics too.
A whole house water treatment system will remedy these problems. As well as removing chemicals like chlorine and ammonia, heavy metals, hard water, and hundreds of other potential contaminants found in public and private water supplies. Your local water provider does the best they can with the money they have. But it falls way short of providing clean safe water to your family. You must take responsibility yourself for providing clean healthy water to your family.

If you are only concerned about lead in your drinking water. Then a reverse osmosis unit can remove lead from your drinking water. Or you can actually use a water softener to remove lead. And you can use both.
