Pure Protection: Your Guide to Removing PFAS for Safer Water at Home

Removing “Forever Chemical" PFAS from Drinking Water

With EPA health advisories recently lowered to near zero, addressing Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in home water supplies is crucial. As an indestructible class of over 5,000 compounds, PFAS lurk indefinitely threatening wellbeing.

Read on as NorCal Water covers common PFAS variants, likely exposure routes, potential impacts, and advanced filtration remedies to protect your household.

Understanding PFAS Variants Like PFOA, PFOS and GenX

PFAS compounds bond carbon and fluorine atoms into nearly indestructible chains. This family includes:

  • Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)
  • Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS)
  • Perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (GenX)

Phased out of US manufacturing, these persist indefinitely in soil and water.

Exposure Pathways and Health Impacts

Daily use objects including non-stick pans, stain-resistant fabrics and food packaging leach PFAS into municipal water supplies and private wells. Associated risks include:

  • Developmental effects in children
  • Increased cancer likelihood
  • Liver damage
  • Compromised fertility

Advanced Filtration - The Only Reliable PFAS Solution

As PFAS compounds resist all conventional treatment methods, only reverse osmosis effectively captures these microscopic threats. NorCal Water Systems offers fully customized Kinetico PFAS filtration systems incorporating:

  • High-efficiency membrane technology
  • Patented EverClean rinsing system to extend membrane life
  • Large-capacity chemical-free water storage tank
  • Additional chlorine and sediment pre-filtration
