Quench Can Help You Get the Lead Out
Concerned about lead in your workplace’s drinking water? A Quench filtered water cooler can reduce 99.9% of lead in tap water. We offer a full complement of filtration solutions to eliminate other impurities and contaminants from your water, including:
Advanced Carbon Filtration
Quench coolers are now equipped with an advanced carbon filter that is NSF certified to reduce 99.9% of lead (as well as other heavy metals like arsenic and mercury); remove sediment and other impurities up to 1 micron in size; reduce microbial contaminants like cysts, cryptosporidium and giardia; and eliminate off-tastes and odors caused by chlorine, sulfides, and other chemicals.
Reverse Osmosis Filtration
Quench also offers reverse osmosis (R/O) filtration systems, for situations requiring the highest levels of purification. Quench R/O systems remove total dissolved solids (TDS) from tap water, reduce lead up to 99.3%, and eliminate chemical and microbial contaminants through an advanced process using a combination of sediment, carbon, and semipermeable membrane filtration.
Get the Facts About Reducing Lead in Your Drinking Water
Municipal water systems in the U.S. routinely test and treat water for lead. Most lead contamination happens as water travels to the tap through old pipes and building infrastructure. Point-of-use water filtration systems are an effective way to reduce lead in tap water. But get the facts: it’s easy to have your drinking water tested. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides a list of independent organizations that offer lead testing. Find a local laboratory through the EPA’s easy-to-use map.
