10" x 2.5" Nitrate Removal Cartridge Using Nitrate Selective Anion Resin (9-3/4" x 2.5")
3-Stage Aquapurion Nitrate Reduction System Filter Pack
20" x 4.5" Nitrate Removal Cartridge Using Nitrate Selective Anion Resin
US Water nitrate removal cartridges provide effective nitrate removal by the utilization of ResinTech® SIR-100-HP resin. Its unique functionality offers twenty-five (25) times greater affinity for nitrate than standard strong-based anion resins. This cartridge removes nitrates efficiently with low leakage,and eliminates the possibility of nitrate dumping upon exhaustion.
Symptoms: Serious illness and even death,especially due to "Blue Baby Syndrome."
Causes:Since they are very soluble and do not bind to soils,nitrates have a high potential to migrate to ground water. Because they do not evaporate,nitrates/nitrites are likely to remain in water until consumed by plants or other organisms
Health Concerns: Excessive levels of nitrate in drinking water have caused serious illness and sometimes death. The serious illness in infants or "Blue Baby Syndrome" is due to the conversion of nitrate to nitrite by the body,which can interfere with the oxygen-carrying capacity of the child's blood. This can be an acute condition in which health deteriorates rapidly over a period of days. Symptoms include shortness of breath and blueness of the skin,diuresis,increased starchy deposits and hemorrhaging of the spleen.
Action Level: Over 10.0 ppm (parts per million).
Nitrates are naturally occurring compounds that are formed when organic matter decomposes in nature. Nitrates are colorless,odorless and tasteless compounds and cannot be detected unless water samples are laboratory tested.
The primary inorganic nitrates that may contaminate drinking water are potassium and ammonium nitrate both widely used in lawn and garden fertilizers. Most nitrogenous materials in natural waters tend to convert to nitrate so all sources of combined nitrogen; particularly organic nitrogen and ammonium should be considered as potential sources of contamination
The EPA defines maximum contaminant level(MCL) allowed in drinking water to be 10 mg/L NO3-N or 45 mg/NO3. Certain populations should monitor nitrate levels to insure they do not suffer any ill health effects,especially children.
