The Most Effective Filters for PFAS

It’s alarming to know that drinking water systems serving more than 46 million Americans are contaminated with PFAS, according to an analysis by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). 

U.S. Water is dedicated to providing the most effective water treatment in the industry. Treatment for PFAS (Per- and Polyfluorinated substances) are no exception. Whether you want to filter water for your entire home or business or just your drinking water, U.S. Water has the solution. 

The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) has been monitoring blood PFAS levels in the U.S. population since 1999-2000. Approximately 97% of Americans have been exposed to PFAS, with these chemicals detected in their blood.

Exposure to PFAS can cause significant and long-term health issues.

Why are PFAS a risk?

Per- and Polyfluorinated substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that persist in the environment.

These chemicals have been used for decades in consumer products to make them non-stick and water resistant. Unfortunately, their persistence in the environment and ability to accumulate in our bodies and animals make them a concern.

Primary Risks of PFAS include

  • Increased risk of some cancers
  • Altered metabolism
  • Fertility issues
  • Reduced fetal growth
  • Increased risk of childhood obesity
