Lead contamination can pose a serious health risk when ingested or inhaled. It is especially dangerous for children, seniors and pregnant women. There are a few specific ways to reduce the risk of lead contamination.
Water Sitting in Pipes.
When you’re away from home for several hours, it’s a good idea to flush the water when you return. The longer water sits in pipes, the more lead it may contain. So run the tap for a couple of minutes, flush the toilet or take a shower (skin does not absorb lead in water so you’re OK to shower).
Hot vs. Cold Water.
For drinking water, it’s best to get water from the “cold” side of your tap. Because water temps play a role in how corrosive water can be, pull from the cold faucet and then heat up the water for that baby bottle or cup of cocoa.
Install a Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System
For a long-term solution that will ensure your household is protected from the dangers of lead contamination 24/7, installing a reverse osmosis water filtration is a possibly the best method. Reverse osmosis is widely considered to be the most thorough and cost-effective way to remove lead from drinking water since an RO system can effectively remove up to 98% of lead from water.
