Filter Pollutants - Pur
Industrial pollutants can enter the surface water through run-off from large factories and chemical plants. These chemicals include industrial solvents such as Trichloroethylene and Chlorobenzene. These chemicals were among the first issues the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) addressed when they formed in 1970.
Filter Lead - Pur
In the 1930s, engineers and chemists began to praise Lead for its versatility and affordability. Production took off. It was used to make batteries, organ pipes, paint, gasoline, and most importantly, pipes and solder for water infrastructure. But as doctors began to link negative health effects to Lead exposure, the excitement quickly wore off.
Filter Mercury - Welcome to PUR
Mercury can enter the water system through the erosion of natural deposits as well as factory and landfill run-off. In 2011 Coal-fired power plants were responsible for approximately 50 percent of human-caused Mercury emissions. That same year the EPA finalized new air pollution limits that cut Mercury emissions by 91 percent.
Filter Pesticides - Pur
Pesticides are being used almost everywhere from schools and parks to forests and beaches. And although they’re most often found in watersheds in the South and Midwest where farming is more prevalent, agricultural run-off isn’t the only way they’re getting into the water – pesticides can leach into water supplies from some home lawn care chemicals.
