Lead pipes were used in homes and office construction up until the 1930's. After that they used copper pipes and until 1986 they were joined with a lead based solder. The good thing is these pipes last for years, the bad thing drinking water with lead in it is very bad.
Lead is a very soft metal and can easily leach into the water you drink and cook with. When we consume lead it just concentrates in our bodies. Lead has been shown to cause serious damage to the brain, kidneys, nervous system and blood cells. Get the Lead Out!
Aquathin's Lead Out filter will reduce any lead concentration far below what the E.P.A recommend level of acceptance. The Lead Out filter also reduces sediment, chlorine and organic contaminants.
The Lead Out filter, just like our Yes Filter, installs under the sink out of the way. Each complete Lead out water filter system comes with all the necessary hardware for an easy installation.
The clean filtered water is dispensed from a separate water carafe making it easy for you to fill up the coffee pot or get water for the pasta. If the water for the icemaker/water dispenser comes from under the sink you can add a tee and get clean water for the refrigerator too!
