Private Well Whole House Arsenic Water Filters

The EPA has set the arsenic standard for drinking water at .010 parts per million (10 parts per billion) to protect consumers served by public water systems from the effects of long-term, chronic exposure to arsenic. Water systems must comply with this standard by January 23, 2006, providing additional protection to an estimated 13 million Americans. Some states have set the arsenic standard down to 5 ppm, and the goal is ZERO. Arsenic can be found in wells and ground water in two forms:  Arsenic V (pentavalent, arsenate) and Arsenic III (trivalent, arsenite). 

AdEdge Technologies' Bayoxide® E33 adsorption media is the industry standard for arsenic reduction reducing up to 99% of total arsenic, including both arsenic (III) and arsenic (V). It is also effective in reducing other heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, chromium, antimony and molybdenum. This revolutionary iron-based granular adsorption media has 4 to 10 times the capacity of many adsorption medias. Adedge's product is specifically designed for commercial and residential POE and small drinking water systems to meet the new EPA arsenic standard of 10 ppb. The Bayoxide® E33 media is discardable when spent and requires no chemicals or regeneration. It has become the premier product of choice for commercial and drinking water treatment systems for reliable, cost-effective, proven reduction of arsenic.

AdVantEdge’s POE Medallion Series (tm) treatment systems offer a new level of quality and convenience. These packaged residential and light commercial systems, specifically designed for arsenic (both arsenic III and arsenic IV) treatment are the culmination of years of experience. The systems utilize AdEdge’s E33 arsenic adsorption media for reliable, simple, and cost-effective treatment. No other technology can compare to its simplicity and ease of use. The media can operate over a wide range of water quality and utilizes no regeneration chemicals, salt or additives. Only monthly, automatic backwashing is required. The spent media, upon exhaustion, is easily disposed as non-hazardous waste.

NOTE: Many competitive arsenic medias only remove arsenic V, and require aeration in order to remove arsenic III. AdEdge E33 removes both without aeration!

Some Features and Benefits include:

 Complete pre-packaged, pre-designed modular system for ease of use
 Reduces Up to 99% reduction of Arsenic (V) and (III) without chemicals
 Automatic controls with LCD display / readout
 Proven, reliable treatment without hassle of chemicals or brine
 Long product life for economical performance

IN-HOME ARSENIC WATER TEST KIT

arsenic test kitArsenic sometimes naturally occurs in water and can be found in public and private water supplies. Mining operations, semiconductor manufacturing, use of wood preservatives are some of the ways water can be contaminated with this poison. If you have a private well you should test for arsenic at least annually because arsenic is often found at levels over 100 times the U.S. EPA safe standard.
SensSafe Quick(tm) Arsenic test kits provides an easy method of screening water for arsenic (III and V), in just minutes, conveniently right at home or in the field. There is nothing to mail and you get instant results. By identifying arsenic in your water, you can take steps to avoid the risks linking this substance to lung and skin cancer or death. Designed using cutting-edge chemistry, the Quick(tm) Arsenic kits report results in as few as 14 minutes and detect from 0.3 ppb, allowing you to easily check and be sure your water meets the safe standard for arsenic as established by the World Health Organization: 10 parts per billion (ppb). Detection Range: 0, 5, 10, 20, 60, 100, 300, 500, >500, >>500 ppb (μg/L) Performance and accuracy of these arsenic kits have been verified by the USEPA through the ETV program ( www.epa.gov/etv). Download the instruction PDF sheet here.
Kit contains five (5) arsenic tests. Price $29.95

 

Arsenic is a semi-metal element in the periodic table. It is odorless and tasteless. Arsenic occurs naturally in rocks and soil, water, air, and plants and animals. It can be further released into the environment through natural activities such as volcanic action, erosion of rocks and forest fires, or through human actions. Approximately 90 percent of industrial arsenic in the U.S. is currently used as a wood preservative, but arsenic is also used in paints, dyes, metals, drugs, soaps and semi-conductors. High arsenic levels can also come from certain fertilizers and animal feeding operations. Industry practices such as copper smelting, mining and coal burning also contribute to arsenic in our environment. * Higher levels of arsenic tend to be found more in ground water sources than in surface water sources (i.e., lakes and rivers) of drinking water. The demand on ground water from municipal systems and private drinking water wells may cause water levels to drop and release arsenic from rock formations. Compared to the rest of the United States, western states have more systems with arsenic levels greater than EPA’s standard of 10 parts per billion (ppb). Parts of the Midwest and New England have some systems whose current arsenic levels are greater than 10 ppb, but more systems with arsenic levels that range from 2-10 ppb. While many systems may not have detected arsenic in their drinking water above 10 ppb, there may be geographic "hot spots" with systems that may have higher levels of arsenic than the predicted occurrence for that area. *Source: US EPA

Non-cancer effects of arsenic can include thickening and discoloration of the skin, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting; diarrhea; numbness in hands and feet; partial paralysis; and blindness. Arsenic has been linked to cancer of the bladder, lungs, skin, kidney, nasal passages, liver, and prostate.
