Pioneer Whole-House Lead, Cyst & PFOA/PFOS Removal System
Designed at the 0.5-micron nominal filtration level, the Pioneer removes and/or reduces soluble lead and particulate lead, heavy metals, PFOA/PFOS, chlorine, and chloramine, including >99.95% of cysts.
Soluble/Ionic & Particulate Lead: The binders within the Pioneer are specifically designed to react with soluble lead by creating an ionic bond. Soluble lead is invisible, odorless, tasteless, by using ionic bonding, the Pioneer ensures all of the lead is kept out of your water supply.
PFOA/PFOS: The chemicals Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), also known as C8, and Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) are bio-permanent, are resistant to direct oxidation and do not break down naturally in the environment or the human body. Studies suggest that exposure to the chemicals may lead to cancer. This system has been tested and third-party certified as required in the NSF/ANSI P473 standard for PFOA/PFOS, along with NSF/ANSI 53 standard for the reduction of lead and cyst.
Simple To Maintain
Smart Meter Display
The Real-time Dynamic LED System monitors water usage, flow rate, and provides you with a visual color-coded notification, letting you know when it's time to replace your filter.
Filter Replacement Is A Snap
The Pioneer uses state-of-the-art snap-ring technology to eliminate the need for cumbersome tools. You can easily replace the filter in your Pioneer system by following a few simple steps.
*Meter preset at 100,000 gallons; see installation manual for resetting when the cartridge is replaced. *Three AAA batteries not included, for battery back-up.
How To Extend The Life Of Your Pioneer Cartridge
The Pioneer System does remove chlorine and chloramine, however, by removing them the life of the carbon in the system is reduced at a significantly higher rate. To combat this we offer our customers the option to add a BodyGuard Whole House Chemical Removal System. By using the BodyGuard as a prefilter for chlorine and chloramine you can extend the life of a pioneer filter cartridge by 1-2 years. This means the bodyguard pays for itself by reducing filter cartridge expenses.
The NSF P473 Drinking Water Treatment Units standard is an extremely rigorous test to evaluate the effectiveness of water treatment equipment for the reduction of chemicals in drinking water, specifically perfluorooctanoic acid (PFAO) and perfluorobutane sulfonate (PFOS). The P473 standard contains four primary sections and is similar to NSF/ANSI 53 Standard for Lead; Section 3 evaluates the performance of the filter to reduce the PFOA and PFOS. The US EPAs combined health advisory level for PFOA & PFOS is 70 parts per trillion (70 ppt) in drinking water. The influent level for P473 testing is 1.5 parts per billion (ppb), added as 1.0 ppb PFOS and 0.5 ppb PFOA, or 20 times the health advisory level set by the EPA. (1.5 parts per billion is equal to 1500 parts per trillion.) For the life of the filter, it must reduce the influent PFOA/PFOS concentration below 70 ppt to comply with the requirements of the standard.
