Filtered Water

Can water filtration systems remove lead?

Yes, lead removal filters are available. Contact your local office for more information.

Where does our water come from?

You likely get your water from a municipal system, aka “city water,” or a private water system—typically a ground water well. Municipalities remove the “big things” like leaves and silt, then disinfect water with chemicals such as chlorine or chloramines. Private wells are maintained by the owners, testing and filtering the water as needed.

How can I find out what’s in our water?

If you’re using municipal water, contact your water supplier and request a drinking water quality report. If you’re using well water, it is your responsibility to make sure the water is safe. Contact your local government for more information on what to test for and testing services.

What’s the difference between chlorine and chloramines? Are they safe?

Both are used to disinfect drinking water. Chlorine is an element, used in gaseous or liquid form. Chloramine is formed by adding ammonia to water that has free chlorine. Chloramines produce lower concentrations of regulated disinfection byproducts and provide longer-lasting water treatment than chlorine, but their taste and odor are more difficult to remove via filtration. Water that contains chlorine and/or chloramines and meets EPA regulatory standards is safe to use for drinking and cooking.

What is reverse osmosis (RO)?

Reverse osmosis is the same process used by producers of high-quality bottled water to remove dissolved solids. Water passes through a pre-filter to remove chlorine and sediment, and is then forced through the reverse osmosis membrane. The membrane allows only water molecules to pass through. Processed water flows to a storage tank; the remaining water is flushed down a drain.

Installing a reverse osmosis system at your office brings you great-tasting, filtered water, for a fraction of the cost of bottled water.
