Are you looking for ways to improve your water quality?
Have you ever tested your water for contaminants?
If you’re concerned about PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) contamination in your water supply and are considering purchasing a water filter, you’re taking an important step toward ensuring the safety of your drinking water.
But, how do you evaluate PFAS water filter performance?
The first thing to check is whether the water filter has been independently tested for PFAS removal. Look for lab reports from organizations like NSF International, Water Quality Association (WQA) or even IAPMO or its affiliates to show the effectiveness in PFAS reduction.
Different water filters use various technologies to remove contaminants. For PFAS removal, consider filters that use activated carbon or specialized PFAS adsorbents. These technologies have been shown to be highly effective in capturing PFAS molecules.
Check the filter’s flow rate, which indicates how quickly water can pass through the filter. Ensure that the flow rate meets your household’s needs without compromising filtration performance.
Understand the filter’s lifespan or capacity. Filters have a limited capacity to remove contaminants, and their effectiveness diminishes over time. Look for filters that are easy to replace and reasonably priced.
Determine whether you can install the filter yourself or if professional installation is required. Choose a filter that aligns with your installation capabilities.
