Lead

Exposure to high levels of lead may lead to serious health problems in the long run. If the contaminant enters the bloodstream, it can have an adverse effect on your health. Prolonged exposure to lead-contaminated water may cause blood lead level to increase.

Health Effects Of Lead In Your Water Supply

Lead interferes with a variety of body processes and is toxic to many organs and tissues including the heart, bones, intestines, kidneys and reproductive and nervous systems. It interferes with the development of the nervous system and is therefore particularly toxic to children, causing potentially permanent learning and behavior disorders. The AquaOx can remove the harmful lead from your water and keep your body going strong.

How Do You Detect Lead in Water?

Unlike hydrogen sulfide, you can not see, taste, or smell lead in water. The only way to determine whether your tap water contains lead is to have your water tested. You can test the water yourself using water test kits or have your provider do the test for you. Either way, the importance of getting your water tested should not be overlooked whether you suspect contaminants or not.

How Does Lead Get into Your Water Source?

Despite the effort of the municipal water supplies to prevent and reduce exposure to lead in tap water, the contaminant can still find its way into the faucets in our homes.

The places where you can find lead are in interior water pipes, and metal water pipes connecting to the main line of the house. Corrosion is one of the main causes of the presence of lead in your waterline.

What is the Best Way to Eliminate Lead in Water?

Whether your tap water contains alarming levels of lead or reading of below 15ppb, you should take the necessary actions to reduce or eliminate the pollutant in the water. Once lead, or any pollutants are detected, you should begin to address the issue to protect yourself and your family from harm. There are four ways to eliminate or reduce lead in your tap water. These are changing water supplier, drinking bottled water, removing and replacing metal pipelines, and installing a filtration system. Any of the above mentioned solutions are good options to eliminate contaminants in your water. While anyone can change water supplier, some households located in far places are unable to get alternate suppliers.

​ Lastly, buy and set up a water filtration system that catches and eliminates lead and other impurities. There are water filters designed to reduce or get rid of contaminants. When buying a filtration system, make sure you get a product that has been certified by an independent testing company.
