US Water Arsenic Reduction Cartridge 2.5" x 10" | USWF-2510-AR
Arsenic occurs naturally in soil and bedrock in many parts of the United States. Arsenic has no smell, taste, or color when dissolved in water, even in high concentrations, and therefore only laboratory analysis can determine the presence and concentration of arsenic in water. Arsenic is a potential concern to those who live in areas; with high natural deposits of arsenic, receive runoff from orchards, or from glass and electronic production waste.
The health effects of arsenic depend on its chemical form, how much is consumed, and for how long. Long-term exposure to arsenic can cause a number of harmful effects on the human body.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
•USE OF RESINTECH®ASM-10-HP MEDIA The initial capture of arsenate is by ion exchange, thus the removal rate of arsenic from the inlet liquid is much faster than ordinary iron based media. Its strong base exchange functionally can be used to simultaneously remove nitrate, uranium, chromate and other objectionable anions while removing arsenate.
•FDA DRINKING WATER APPROVED MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION Sonic welded construction is a solvent free method to join and assemble plastic parts, producing the highest quality safest product
•FITS STANDARD RESIDENTIAL AND INDUSTRIAL SIZE HOUSING - US Water Arsenic cartridges are double-open end cartridges that fit standard residential and industrial housings
•OVERSIZED CARTRIDGE FOR MAXIMUM MEDIA FILL US Water Arsenic cartridges have up to 50% higher capacity and extend cartridge life, due to the use of larger cartridges
•QUALITY PRODUCED AND MADE IN THE USA To ensure consistent quality and peace of mind for the consumer all drinking water media are WQA Gold Seal or NSF certified.
RESIDENTIAL POINT OF USE (POU) DRINKING WATER SYSTEM - The EPA has defined as acceptable or safe a limit of 10 ppb for arsenic in drinking water. If laboratory testing indicates levels above 10 ppb, the use of a specific arsenic removal cartridge is indicated, due to the contamination of source water.
PRIVATE WELLS POINT OF ENTRY (POE) - Well water is particularly susceptible to arsenic, those not connected to municipal drinking water systems may want to consider this option as part of a whole house system. Wells supply 15% of American populations with drinking water, and these wells are not subject to EPA regulations. These wells provide safe clean water, but occasionally can become contaminated, resulting in illness.
