Reverse Osmosis System Install Project For The Carlson Family In Lehigh Acres, FL

ro systemOur trusted Lehigh Acres Water Purification Company recently finished this Reverse Osmosis System Installation in Lehigh Acres, FL.

The Carlson family of Lehigh Acres, FL wanted to improve the water quality of their home. They contacted us for a Free Water Test so they can understand their home’s water quality. Once the water test was completed, we understood that the Carlson family needed a Reverse Osmosis System.

Contaminants Exceeded Guidelines

Legal water does not mean your water is safe. Receiving a passing grade from the federal government does not mean your water meets the latest health guidelines.

The federal government’s legal limits on your water are not health-protective. The EPA has not set new tap water standards in almost two decades, and some standards are more than four decades old!

To be sure your water is clean you need to know that pollution is kept out of the water source!

The following contaminants were found to be above the EWG’s Health Guidelines.

Arsenic

Potential Effect: cancer

129x

EWG’S HEALTH GUIDELINE

  • UTILITY: 0.514 ppb
  • GUIDELINE: 0.004 ppb
  • LEGAL LIMIT: 10 ppb

Chromium (hexavalent)

Potential Effect: cancer

3.8x

EWG’S HEALTH GUIDELINE

  • UTILITY: 0.0757 ppb
  • GUIDELINE: 0.02 ppb
  • LEGAL LIMIT: None

Radium, combined (-226 & -228)

Potential Effect: cancer

29x

EWG’S HEALTH GUIDELINE

  • UTILITY: 1.45 pCi/L
  • GUIDELINE: 0.05 pCi/L
  • LEGAL LIMIT: 5 pCi/L

Total trihalomethanes (TTHMs)

Potential Effect: cancer

110x

EWG’S HEALTH GUIDELINE

  • UTILITY: 16.5 ppb
  • GUIDELINE: 0.15 ppb
  • LEGAL LIMIT: 80 ppb
