Reverse Osmosis Home Water Filters That Remove PFOA From Hoosick Falls Water

Standard

The recent outbreak of contaminated water affecting the area of Hoosick Falls, NY is currently left unresolved. The EPA continues to strongly urge people in this location not to drink the water or use it for cooking purposes.

The contaminant, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) found in the water, is a very harmful substance commonly found in products such as: coating additives, fire-fighting foams, and cleaning products. Due to PFOA’s significantly high boiling point of 372.2°F, bringing the water to a boil at 212°F does not eliminate the toxins when used for cooking.

In efforts to improve the water quality and filter out this toxic substance from household drinking water, 1st Source Servall has compiled a list of reverse osmosis (RO) water filters effective in safely removing PFOA from drinking water, and are available for purchase on our website below.

    Is there any study to support the validity of the filters? e.g(levels before &after filtration.) Any numbers or information would be appreciated.

    • Thanks for the question James! Any information that we have in regards to the water filters we carry is provided to us by the manufacturers. Most filters will list the contaminants they have been tested or certified to remove right on the packaging. If they do not, the manufacturer will typically make this information relatively easy to access usually with a breakdown of the percentages of each contaminant the filter has been approved to remove. You may be able to find additional studies for different filters using the part numbers, but we don’t have any specific recommendations.
