APEX Whole Home Arsenic Removal Water Filter
Arsenic is a naturally occurring contaminant in well and municipal water supplies. Arsenic (chemical symbol As) occurs naturally in soil and bedrock in many parts of the United States. Some man-made arsenic contamination is related to former practices like apple orchard pesticides, coal ash disposal, and use of certain pressure treated wood products. Drinking arsenic-contaminated water can result in both chronic (long-term) and acute (short-term) health effects. Acute effects can include nausea, vomiting, neurological effects such as numbness or burning sensations in the hands and feet, cardiovascular effects and decreased production of red and white blood cells which may result in fatigue. Chronic effects include changes in skin coloration and skin thickening and small corn-like growths that can develop especially on the palms of the hand and soles of the feet. Chronic exposure to arsenic is also associated with an increased risk of skin, bladder, and lung cancer. There is also evidence that long-term exposure to arsenic can increase risks for kidney and prostate cancer. Recent studies have suggested that arsenic may cause IQ deficits in children and may be harmful to fetal development. The EPA estimated in 2000 that nearly 36 million Americans drank water containing arsenic at or above the recommended safe level.
The APEX Whole House Arsenic Removal System will protect you, your family and pets from arsenic poisoning. Filter is designed to filter all of the water entering your house, office or apartment complex. Every faucet, shower, refrigerator, ice machine and coffee maker will have safe, arsenic-free water. Youll have peace of mind knowing that your water is safe for drinking, cooking, food preparation and washing. The APEX Whole House Arsenic Removal System is assembled and quality-checked in our US manufacturing facility. Filter uses state of the art arsenic removal technology. The large media tank contains a specially-made ion-exchange resin that specifically removes arsenic from tap water. The hybrid resin also adsorbs arsenic directly from water, increasing filtration capacity and efficiency. Filter uses a large capacity media tank that is automated by a Fleck electronic control valve. The Fleck electronic control valve monitors and regulates the backwashing and regeneration of the APEX Whole House Arsenic Removal System. The electronic control valve automatically backwashes and cleans the filter media based on water usage. This keeps the filter system working properly with no input from you. The easy to use key pads and digital display allow for a quick and easy set-it and forget-it start-up.
