Whole home water filtration delivers safe, great tasting water
Although the United States has some of the best public drinking water available, there is reason to be concerned about contamination in some areas.
More than 60,000 chemicals are used in the U.S., but only 90 water contaminants are regulated under the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
The SDWA sets a “safe standard” on the maximum contaminant levels allowed in public drinking water, so some amounts of those chemicals can still be present.
Over time, these chemicals and other unregulated contaminants could potentially damage your health.
