Does your water…
- Taste “off” or “funny”?
- Look cloudy or otherwise not crystal-clear?
- Have an unpleasant odor?
Or, have your water bills increased unexpectedly – for no obvious reason?
If so, these are signs that you might have an issue going on in your water that you need to get tested.
A recent study of CFPUA water found alarming levels of the chemical GenX, with the utility unable to filter out the compound. GenX is in the perfluorochemicals family of man-made compounds.
PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic acid or perfluorooctanoate) and PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate) are chemicals that have been used in the United States since the 1940s in the manufacturing of popular consumer goods including Teflon, pesticides, household cleaning products, and other other items.
According to the US EPA:
[PFOA and PFOS] are “extremely persistent in the environment and resistant to typical environmental degradation processes. They are widely distributed across the higher trophic levels and are found in soil, air and groundwater at sites across the United States. The toxicity, mobility and bioaccumulation potential of PFOS and PFOA pose potential adverse effects for the environment and human health.
The EPA has released a Drinking Water Advisory for PFOS which reveals potentially serious issues linking PFOS and PFOA to conditions like cancer, neuroendocrine conditions, cardiovascular problems, reproductive issues, and more.
If you suspect you have PFOA or PFC in your drinking water it’s important that you get your water tested. We can help you navigate that process with the proper state agencies.
If you’ve already determined your water has been contaminated with PFOA, then fill-out the form below so we can review your water test results and explain our customized, laboratory-verified solution for improving your drinking water.
