Removing Nitrate from Water

What is Nitrate?

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, as well as endangering older children and adults.  Typically, nitrate comes from fertilizers, as they’re used for lawn and plant cultivation.

How to Remove Nitrate from Water

The most efficient way to remove nitrate from drinking water is by 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), trihalomethanes (THMs), lead and other heavy metals, fluoride, sodium, chlorine, foul tastes and bad odors.  Nitrate can also be removed and reduced using a water conditioning system with a special nitrate reduction resin.  This method is ideal for whole house filtration, in order to enjoy filtered water from every faucet in your home.
