Lead in your water can be a serious health risk for you and your family. The EPA says that there is NO Safe Level of LEAD when it comes to water. So if you think you might have lead in your water, let us come out and perform a free water test to find out. If you do have LEAD in your water, we offer a powerful whole home filtration solution to make sure your home is LEAD FREE!
Health risks of lead in drinking water
Even low levels of lead in the blood of children can result in:
Behavior and learning problems
Lower IQ and hyperactivity
Lead can accumulate in our bodies over time, where it is stored in bones along with calcium. During pregnancy, lead is released from bones as maternal calcium and is used to help form the bones of the fetus. This is particularly true if a woman does not have enough dietary calcium. Lead can also cross the placental barrier exposing the fetus to lead. This can result in serious effects to the mother and her developing fetus, including:
Reduced growth of the fetus
Lead is also harmful to adults. Adults exposed to lead can suffer from:
Cardiovascular effects, increased blood pressure and incidence of hypertension
Decreased kidney function
Reproductive problems (in both men and women)

Pioneer - whole home lead Filter
About the PIONEER System
PIONEER™ is specifically designed at a 0.5-micron nominal filtration level, to remove both particulate and soluble lead from your drinking water. Soluble lead is invisible, odorless, tasteless, and needs to be chemically removed from water. Particulate lead is like a tiny grain of sand that needs to be physically removed from water. The PIONEER™ POE filter is strategically designed to remove BOTH forms of lead contamination from the whole house in a single filter.
Soluble/Ionic lead: PIONEER™ binders are designed to chemically react with soluble lead to create an ionic bond, kinetically removing lead from the water. Ionic bonding is a chemical bond that involves the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions, and is the primary interaction occurring in ionic compounds. Ionic bonds form when a nonmetal (binder/adsorbent) and a metal (lead) exchange electrons, as they do in PIONEER™.
Particulate lead: PIONEER™ filter is specifically engineered to physically remove and filter lead particles from water which is often found as a result of corroded lead pipes.
Other contaminants: Not only does PIONEER remove heavy metals such as lead, it also removes and/or reduces chlorine, chloramine and other harmful contaminants in your water, including >99.95% of Cysts.
*The PIONEER™ POE filter has been tested for use at standard and peak flow rates for BOTH forms of lead. The Water Quality Platinum Seal and UPC shield demonstrate the certification by IAPMO R&T.
