Concerns about the quality of tap water are on the rise. This is not surprising given the frequency of water crises in the news, such as PFAS hotspots, train derailments, lead contamination, natural disasters, and the presence of microplastics. It was recently reported that approximately 45% of the nation’s tap water contains “forever chemicals” known as PFAS. Furthermore, the EPA recently announced that nearly 10% of drinking water service lines in the country contain lead. According to Aquasana’s fifth annual Water Quality Survey, concerns about drinking water quality in the U.S. have more than doubled over the past two years to reach 70%. As a result, 91% of Americans now filter their drinking water at home.
“As we always say, installing a water filter is an easy and effective way to instantly improve the overall health and wellness of a home,” added Mellencamp. “Concerns about our drinking water will continue to compound as emerging contaminants like PFAS, a diverse group of 10,000+ chemicals, become more pervasive. Thankfully, awareness of water quality issues and contaminants in the U.S. has grown significantly since 1998. Over the past few years, we’ve seen more and more Americans choosing to protect themselves from potentially harmful contaminants by using a water filter at home.”
Over the past 25 years, Aquasana has been at the forefront of protecting U.S. households from emerging drinking water contaminants, including chlorine, chloramines, lead, pharmaceuticals, herbicides and pesticides. Now, the company is also addressing PFAS and microplastics. In addition to the shower filter, Aquasana has developed its high-performance Rhino® whole house water filtration systems, as well as advanced Claryum® filtration technology for under sink and countertop systems. These filtration systems remove harmful contaminants while preserving beneficial minerals, such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium. In 2019, Aquasana introduced the first whole house filter certified for the reduction of lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS. Today, Aquasana offers a wide range of whole house, shower, and drinking water filters for the home, including under sink and countertop systems that are tested and certified to remove up to 99.99% of 90 contaminants, such as chlorine, fluoride, arsenic, lead, pesticides, PFOA/PFOS, and microplastics.
