Contaminants in your drinking water are either invisible or visible to the naked eyes. Although some of them can be detected with our sense of smell, most of the water contaminants are untraceable by our physical perceptions. Water filtration systems are used to either reduce or eliminate pollutants like endothall that may cause adverse effects to your health.
The chemical compound Endothall is an herbicide used for the removal of algae and submerged aquatic weeds in lakes, irrigation canals, ponds, and other large bodies of water. Endothall filter systems are designed to remove the herbicide from the feed water to protect you from the adverse effects of the contaminant to your health.
How Does Endothall Get into Your Drinking Water
Endothall is used on potato, sugar beets, alfalfa crops, and other agricultural produce. The chemical can enter your water source through runoff either by careless waste management or rainwater runoff. If your private well is situated near an agricultural or industrial company, you might want to check your water for potential contaminants.
Health Effects of Endothall
According to the EPA, severe exposure to the chemical compound Endothall can cause eye damage, skin, nose, and throat irritation, severe GI inflammation with erosion, vomiting with abdominal pain, depressed breathing and heart rate, and other health problems. In large amounts, the consumption of Endothall-contaminated drinking water may lead to death. If your water supply is contaminated, take the necessary actions right away to prevent the potential health risks.
