Why we need to remove PFAS from our water

What are PFAS?

Lately, there’s been a lot of talk about ‘forever chemicals’ in our water. If you’ve heard about this, you might be wondering: what exactly are PFAS?

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of chemicals used in a variety of products we use every day. They’re called ‘forever chemicals’ because they break down very slowly over time. Because of their widespread use, you can find PFAS in water, air, fish, and soil all around the world. They’re even in our food at low levels and have been detected in the blood of people and animals everywhere.

PFAS contamination happens because these chemicals are in so many things: non-stick pans, waterproof clothes, and even firefighting foams. When we use or throw away these products, PFAS can seep into the ground and our water supply. Once they’re in the environment, they are difficult to get rid of and can accumulate over time.

Studies have shown that exposure to certain PFAS can lead to some pretty serious health issues, like thyroid disease, high cholesterol, liver damage, and even cancer. There are thousands of different PFAS chemicals, and they’re in so many products that it’s hard to fully understand their impact on our health and the environment.

So, while PFAS are everywhere and tricky to deal with, staying informed and taking steps to minimize exposure can help protect our health.

We understand that you would want to take this unwanted chemical out of your drinking water. We are still finding out through our suppliers and manufacturers which cartridges in our range take out PFAS effectively.
