What Are Pharmaceuticals?
Pharmaceuticals in drinking water refers to prescription and non-prescription drugs that enter groundwater through pharmaceutical manufacturing waste or through consumer disposal of pharmaceuticals via wastewater or trash. Pharmaceutical water contamination has been a fairly recent and growing concern whose long-term effects have yet to be fully explored.
How Does Multipure Protect You
Multipure's drinking water systems utilize our proprietary solid carbon block filters to treat the presence of pharmaceuticals, as well as other contaminants classified as "Emerging Compounds and Incidental Contaminants." Through a combination of mechanisms including mechanical filtration, physiochemical adsorption, and electtrokinetic adsorption, Multipure's solid carbon block filters can reduce not only pharmaceuticals, but also the presence of other contaminants like asbestos, cysts, particulates, lead, mercury, PCBs, radon, toxaphine, and chlorine.
Multipure's Aqualuxe and Aquaversa drinking water systems are NSF-certified according to NSF/ANSI Standards 42 (Aesthetic Effects), 53 (Health Effects), 401 (Emerging Contaminants), for the reduction of dozens of contaminants. NSF Certification is a very high standard of quality, so you can be confident that our filters do exactly what we say they do.
Why Do I Need to Remove
Pharmaceutical From My Water?
Both prescription and non-prescription medications often confer a host of effects on the human body - both intended and as side-effects. When you drink water that is contaminated with pharmaceuticals, it can be akin to taking someone else's random medication, in that there is no way to predict what the effect will be. You can see how important it is to make sure your water is free of such products.
