Do you looked at your Brita pitcher and wonder if they are doing all they claim to do? It really depends on why you bought them. Brita pitchers (and similar brands) are mostly effective for improving the taste of your water. But they aren’t necessarily effective for other filtration purposes. Brita pitchers remove some toxins, but not all. They are not useful for removing contaminants like lead. One concerning thing about pitcher water filters is that they can put a tremendous amount of bacteria into the water that you drink. The reason for this is that people often do not change the filter. Then the filter gets dirty and remains damp for long periods of time. This is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. So while a person buys a pitcher filter for beneficial reasons, it can be incredibly counterproductive. 

 

Knowledge of Contaminants

 

Cheaper water filters only treat a handful of contaminants. Do you even know if those are the contaminants that affect your home water? If you call Aqua Pure Solutions, we can set up a time to test your water. This way we can assist you with getting the contaminants that are most relevant to Nashville out of your water. 

 

What is the quality of water like in Nashville?

 

Parts of Nashville have outdated plumbing infrastructure. This is the main reason lead can get into the drinking water. There is no safe amount of lead. Lead is usually leached into water sources from corroded pipes. Because most of the water in Nashville comes into contact with the Cumberland River, there are a lot of industrial pollutants that come into contact with our drinking water. Two specific ones in Nashville water is Chromium 6 and Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs). These are contaminants that have been found to be cancerous.
