Water going in a bottle

Why Do You Need a House-Wide Water Filter?

June 3, 2024

Long Island’s water isn’t as safe as you think…

According to CBS, “Long Island gets its drinking water from an underground aquifer, unlike New York City’s pristine Catskills water. Long Island’s water is more vulnerable to chemicals called PFAS. “

PFAs, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are a group of human-made chemicals that have been widely used in various industrial and consumer products for decades due to their unique properties. These substances are characterized by strong carbon-fluorine bonds, which make them resistant to heat, water, and oil, as well as imparting non-stick and stain-resistant qualities.

Despite their widespread use and utility, PFAs have come under scrutiny due to their persistence in the environment, bio-accumulative properties, and potential health risks. Studies have linked exposure to certain PFAs, particularly PFOA and PFOS, to adverse health effects such as developmental delays, immune system dysfunction, liver damage, and certain types of cancer.
