Nitrate is one of the most common groundwater contaminants in rural and suburban communities. Nitrate is a health risk and is regulated in drinking water because excess levels can cause “blue baby” disease and endanger older children and adults. Typically, Nitrate comes from fertilizes used for lawns and plant cultivation.
Nitrate can be removed from drinking water using an under sink Reverse Osmosis system. These systems are highly effective and can reduce and remove other drinking water contaminants, including toxic chemicals (VOCs), tri-halo-methane, lead and other heavy metals, Fluoride, Sodium, Chlorine, tastes, and odors.
Nitrate can also be removed and reduced using a water conditioning system with special Nitrate reduction resin. This method is ideal for whole house filtration to enjoy filtered water from every faucet in your home.
