Pentair LR-BB50 Heavy Duty Lead Reduction System
Whole House Lead Reduction Filtration System
The presence of lead in drinking water is more prevalent and serious than many people realize. Despite common perceptions, lead is not restricted to inner-city communities, but rather is a problem that affects many water systems across the country. According to an Environmental Protection Agency study released in 1993, more than 800 drinking water systems around the nation contain excessive lead. Today, the EPA estimates that more than 40 million North Americans are exposed to potential dangerous amounts of lead in their drinking water.
Who is at Risk?
People of all ages are at risk. Studies show that young children, infants, and pregnant women are particularly vulnerable to unsafe lead levels. The EPA estimates that one in six North American children under the age of 6 has elevated lead levels in their blood.
Lead is especially dangerous to children and pregnant women because it can impair a child’s mental and physical development, reduce a baby’s birth weight and cause premature birth. Prolonged exposure to increased lead levels also can cause aggressive behavior, hyperactivity and learning problems. In adults, increased lead levels have been linked to high blood pressure and damaged hearing.

Climate Change and Water Supply
There is almost unanimous consensus among the world’s scientists that climate change is occurring due to the increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions generated from burning fossil fuels. GHG emissions are gases, mainly carbon dioxide (CO2), that trap the sun’s radiation in the atmosphere,...
