Lead is a soft metal and will leach into drinking water. As any other heavy metal, if consumed, lead will concentrate in our bodies.
Lead is known to cause serious damage to the brain, kidneys, nervous system, and red blood cells. The greatest risk, even with short-term exposure, is to young children and pregnant women.
The Aquathin LeadOut™ Filter is structured to reduce the lead concentration far below the E.P.A. recommended level of acceptance. The LeadOut™ Filter also contains a secondary media for continued reduction of sediment, chlorine and organic contaminates.
