  • Reduces the amount of plastic waste generated by discarded water bottles.

Some of the Contaminants That Can Make Their Way Into Our Drinking Water

For the most part, the drinking water in and around Pomona is safe for human consumption. However, it is possible for the water coming into your home to become contaminated. Some common types of water contaminants include:

  • Physical contaminants. Physical contaminants can include sediments like sand, soil, and rust.
  • Chemical Contaminants. There are a wide range of chemical contaminants that can enter your water supply. They include inorganic compounds, such as lead, arsenic, fluoride, and mercury; organic carbon-based compounds such as pesticides, herbicides, and industrial solvents; disinfection byproducts like chlorine; and cadmium, chromium, and copper other metallic elements.
  • Biological Contaminants. Biological contaminants can consist of bacteria, viruses, parasites, algae, fungi, and more.
  • Radionuclides. These contaminants include radioactive elements such as radium, uranium, and radon.
  • Residue from pharmaceuticals and personal care products, such as medications and toiletries.

Which Water Filtration System is Right for You?

There are several methods for removing contaminants from your drinking water. They can range from simple, inexpensive systems to complex systems that cost hundreds of dollars and require professional installation. Determining which type is best for you or your family depends on several factors. It’s important to keep in mind that no filter eliminates all contaminants, so understanding what filters do and do not do is important to ensuring your health and safety.

Filtration techniques can include activated carbon filtration, ion exchange units, reverse osmosis units, distillation units:

  • Activated carbon filtration is effective at removing organic compounds, chlorine, and some heavy metals.
  • Ion exchange units are effective at removing fluoride and minerals like calcium and magnesium that contribute to “hard” water.
  • Reverse osmosis removes nitrates, sodium, and other dissolved inorganics and organic compounds, eliminating foul tastes, smells, or colors. It can also reduce the level of some pesticides, dioxins, and petrochemicals. This method does filter out all inorganic and organic contaminants.
  • Distillation units are designed to remove nitrates, bacteria, sodium, hardness, dissolved solids, most organic compounds, heavy metals, and radionuclides.
