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.
It’s important to note that manufacturers strongly recommend changing the water filters in your home once every six months. For assistance in placing your order, please call 800-856-9874. For more information on the Hoosick Falls water contamination, Click Here.
