The Hidden Dangers Lurking in Your Tap Water: A Closer Look at PFAS Contamination

In our daily routines, we often take for granted the water flowing from our taps. Yet, recent revelations have shown that UK tap water safety standards lag behind those of our European counterparts. Among the concerns, one issue stands out significantly – the presence of “forever chemicals” in UK tap water sources, forcing consumers to search for solutions  to safeguard their well-being. Enter ZeroWater, a global leader in water purification technology, offering an unrivalled solution remove chemicals, toxins and containments from tap water.

ZeroWater’s groundbreaking five-stage filtration process, sets it apart from competitors by efficiently eliminating virtually all dissolved solids, delivering unmatched purity with every drop. Unlike conventional filtration methods, ZeroWater’s advanced system comprehensively targets contaminants, including per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), widely known as “forever chemicals.”

Studies have shown the presence of PFAS in drinking water sources across England, prompting an urgent call to action. ZeroWater directly confronts this challenge through its cutting-edge filtration technology, assuring consumers that is removes up to 99.6% of all containments.

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) has issued a call for a reduction in acceptable levels of “forever chemicals” in drinking water, advocating for stricter regulations to safeguard public health. PFAS, notorious for their environmental persistence, have been linked to a numerous of health ailments, spanning from cancers to developmental defects.

Presently, the UK’s guideline limit for individual PFAS in drinking water rests at 100 nanograms per litre, a figure that falls short of ensuring adequate consumer protection. The RSC’s proposal to reduce this limit to 10ng/l and introduce a new overall limit of 100ng/l for a broader range of PFAS in drinking water underscores the urgent need for decisive action.

Consumers can not only safeguard their health but also contribute to reducing plastic waste generated by single-use bottles by using ZeroWater. ZeroWater removes nearly twice as many contaminants from tap water as its competitors, including microplastics prevalent in UK tap water. ZeroWater has conducted comprehensive insights into the contaminants eradicated by its filtration systems.

With its superior 5 stage-filtration technology, ZeroWater offers consumers peace of mind, knowing that their drinking water is free from harmful contaminants. As we collectively strive towards a healthier future, ZeroWater leads the charge in ensuring clean, safe, and pure drinking water for all.
