Breast Cancer and You

Friday, May 23, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Health, Water News

In our modern world, we are surrounded by chemicals and substances that are commonly used in everyday life. Unfortunately, many common chemicals we encounter have been found to be carcinogenic and are linked to cancer, specifically breast cancer.

A new study published in the Environmental Health Perspectives peer-reviewed journal identifies 17 groups of #chemicals that are linked to breast cancer. These include benzene and butadiene (found in vehicle exhaust, tobacco smoke, or charred food), methylene chloride (found in cleaning solvents), flame retardants (found in treated furniture or rugs), stain-resistant textiles (found in furniture upholstery), and disinfection byproducts (found in drinking water).

Silent Spring, an organization dedicated to identifying and breaking the links between environmental chemicals and #breastcancer, provides a list of seven tips you can follow to reduce or eliminate your exposure to breast carcinogens.  #SilentSpring believes that while science is still discovering how these chemicals affect our health and our lives, these tips provide actions you can take to begin reducing your exposure now.

#Water2Drink is in full alignment with Multipure’s core belief of better water for better health.  For over forty years, Multipure has produced the best water filters and water treatment devices in the market.  Their solid carbon block technology is independently tested and certified by #NSF International, and are proven to reduce many contaminants listed in this study and much more.  You can view the Performance Data Sheets that list the certified reduction of contaminants for all of our products on our website.

Get The Lead Out!

Friday, May 9, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Water Safety

In 2011, the Federal Government enacted the “Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act.” This law went into effect on January 4, 2014. The idea behind the act was to amend the Safe Drinking Water Act regarding the use of metal fixtures, fittings, pipes, and other metal components, in order to clarify the "lead free” requirements of plumbing components.

Here’s the Great News:  Multipure’s Drinking Water Systems are in full compliance.  #Multipure products are certified for material safety by NSF International when they are rigorously tested under the NSF/ANSI Standard 42 testing protocol, and this certification extends to #lead content.

As an educated consumer, you need to be aware that all of the system components that Multipure provides with its’ systems should be utilized for the installation of your water filtration system.  By substituting non-compliant hardware when making repairs or changes, a consumer could negate the certification testing provided by the #NSF/ANSI testing protocol. Some consumers believe plastic fittings are inferior to metal fittings, but that is not the case, particularly when it comes to leaching harmful contaminants into drinking water.

We’ve provided a link to a summary of the Act here.  In particular, we recommend you specifically read the “Frequently Asked Questions” section, which addresses questions raised by the manufacturing and usage of certain plumbing components that may be used in your home or office.  You can also find more information about lead in drinking water at the EPA’s website, or by visiting the #Water2Drink Resource Center to learn how a Multipure Water Filter works.

Open or Closed? Reservoirs, That Is

Friday, April 18, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Water Safety

Headlines this week report a young man in #Portland, Oregon was arrested for urinating through a fence into the #MountTabor Reservoir #5. Additionally, two other men tried to scale the fence, and one of those men actually entered the water.

While it might seem like a harmless prank, the city decided to drain the reservoir – all 38 million gallons – because of the type of reservoir.  This reservoir, one of five in Portland, is an open reservoir that holds water that already has been treated and flows directly into the water mains to customers.

You may agree with the city regarding the dumping of this treated water or you may not.  But with an open reservoir, the possibilities for contamination are endless.  Urine (either human or animal), surrounding land use run off, animal carcasses, or algal growth may all contribute to reservoir contamination.

Is your water sourced from an open reservoir?  Whether it is open or closed, or from a water treatment plant, wouldn’t you want to ensure that you have a final barrier to contaminants in your drinking water? An effective point-of-use water filtration system will give you peace of mind that the water in your glass is safe to drink.  

Visit to determine which point-of-use filter would work best for your family, or call for advice in selecting your #Multipure filter.

What Are Your Kids Drinking?

Friday, April 11, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink

The USDA has a new mandate that calls for schools participating in the National School Lunch Program to provide access to free drinking water during lunchtime.  While you might think this is a basic right of all students, the USDA requirement was designed to give students better access to drinking water during meals.  

USDA investigators found most schools met the requirements through the use of water fountains in schools, but the study also looked at other obstacles that might block students from utilizing the free drinking water. Students may need permission to get up and move about, they may need to wait in line or make a special trip to obtain water.  It may be impractical for water fountains to meet the accessibility needs of the students.  

Schools are taking steps to ensure our nation’s schoolchildren are provided with their daily recommended amount of water.  Are you doing the same?  At home, what steps can you take to reinforce what they are trying to do in the schools?  Is fresh, clean water available at all times to the members of your household?  Easy access to clean drinking water using a great water filter will address this problem.  

According to Consumer Reports magazine, a Multipure Aquaversa (MP750SB) water filter is the best choice for your clean water needs.  You can visit to learn more about this product and purchase one through our secure online ordering system.

New Findings about Arsenic and Intelligence

Friday, April 4, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Health, Water News

Arsenic, a naturally occurring, tasteless and odorless metalloid, is recognized by most consumers to be a toxic carcinogen. Arsenic can exist in many inorganic and organic compounds as well, and researchers and regulators agree that inorganic arsenic is more of a risk than the organic forms prevalent in the diet.

Recently, a study of 272 Maine schoolchildren might reveal a breakthrough about whether arsenic exposure, even at low levels, could also lead to reduced intelligence.  This five year study conducted by scientists from Columbia University and the University of New Hampshire showed that even at low levels, arsenic in drinking water could correlate to as much as 5 or 6 lowered points on IQ tests.   “It is the first study to actually show a difference in IQ points in the U.S. based on water arsenic levels,” says Prof. Gail Wasserman of Columbia University.

Laboratory testing is available to identify arsenic levels in your water source. The first place to start would be with your local water authority.  You can also reference the Environmental Working Group National Drinking Water Database, where you can type in your zip code and learn more about your local water source. 

Multipure Drinking Water Systems have been certified by NSF International to reduce the widest range of contaminants of health concern. Multipure’s Aquaperform (MP880) units have been certified by NSF International, under Standard 53, to reduce Arsenic V.  For more facts about arsenic, click here to see more information on  If you are not sure of which system you may need, please contact us for assistance in selecting the one that best suits your needs.

Accept No Imitations!

Thursday, March 27, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Products

A recent letter from Zachary Rice, President of Multipure International addresses the importance of buying genuine Multipure replacement filters:

“March, 2014

I have recently heard growing concerns regarding imitation carbon block filters that are “Multipure compatible”. As we all know, the water filtration industry is full of incredible potential. There have always been competing products on the market as well as “knock-offs” attempting to capitalize on Multipure’s superior products. However, with an increasing number of companies entering this expanding market, and with the ease of finding products in today’s information age, these products are more prevalent and visible than ever.


The simple fact remains that these products are inferior to Multipure’s certified products. In the end, there are two options a consumer faces when selecting a drinking water filter for themselves and their family. The first option is to choose a Multipure product with broad performance certifications, superior capabilities, and exceptional quality backed by a lifetime warranty. The second option is to choose a product without these assurances. Simply review the fine print, the list of performance claims, and the information available on the options, and the answer will be as clear as a glass of Multipure water.


Let me provide an example. The CB6 cartridge is NSF certified for 67 contaminants, most of which are health concern contaminants including Lead, VOCs, PCBs, MTBE, and Cysts. An available “knock-off” cartridge is certified for nothing and adds the following disclaimer: “If you know that tap water contains a chemical contaminant of health effect, then you may want to install a specialty filter to remove the contaminant of concern before water enters this filter.”


If your customer insists on purchasing a knock-off filter, please have them take the advice of the competition and put a CB6 filter in place before the knock-off cartridge. My advice would be to save themselves the frustration, risk, and cost of an inferior product, and just stick with a product we all have confidence in: Multipure.

Where's The Water?

Friday, March 21, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Water Safety

Everyone knows of the lack of water in arid areas like Los Angeles, CA and Las Vegas, NV. But what about Lincoln, NE? Cleveland, OH? Miami, FL? Washington, DC? San Antonio, TX? If you didn’t think these cities would be at risk for water availability, you might be surprised.  All of these cities are on the list of 11 US cities that have dramatically higher water usage than replenishment, according to NOAA’s Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) 2013 study. 

A recent article in the online magazine Water Conditioning & Purification (January 2014) outlines the global supply and demand and how these cities suffer the effects of their water demands.  Only a small fraction of the water used in the US (0.4 percent) is used for drinking.  Flushing toilets account for 27 gallons per person per day!  While we may want to believe that fresh clean water will always be available, many deficiencies in our water supply may be disguised in at-risk areas.

“Water-stressed regions frequently suffer from multiple economic and public health adversities, including food and water quality issues,” states the article.  Many water-stressed cities receive their water from locations that are many miles away, and it may travel in open canals or waterways that are subject to many levels of contamination.

The Huffington Post also wrote about the risks for these 11 cities, citing the CIRES report and additional sources.  If you live near or in these cities, you may want to begin looking at your water usage.  For the health and safety of yourself and loved ones, consider using a point-of-use water filtration system to ensure the quality of the water in your home.  You may want to begin talking to your neighbors about what conservation efforts may be in place in your area.  It is going to take awareness and action by all of us to change the trajectory of these vulnerable cities.

Top Tips for Safe Drinking Water!

Sunday, March 9, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink

Recently, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) published a “Guide to Safe Drinking Water.” This Guide provides a list of top tips for safely staying hydrated. applauds the list, as each tip provides consumer education without using the scare tactics that are so typical in many media stories.  The EWG provides well researched, sensible information that the consumer can learn from and easily apply in their own life.

There is, however, one point that Water2Drink would like to clarify.  In the article, the EWG states, “Install a reverse osmosis filter if you can afford it, to remove contaminants that carbon filters can’t eliminate, like arsenic and perchlorate (rocket fuel).”

While Water2Drink offers the Multipure AquaRO Reverse Osmosis drinking water filtration system, you do not necessarily need to install an RO system to address arsenic contamination in your water.  The Aquaperform family (MP880 series) of Multipure filters is NSF-certified as highly effective in reducing arsenic contamination in municipal water sources. You can review the Aquaperform Performance Data Sheet here to see the many contaminants that are addressed by the Aquaperform family of water filtration systems.

Before installing any water filtration system in your home, Water2Drink recommends that you educate yourself about the quality of your water source.  You can contact your local water utility to request a copy of your annual water report.  You also can use the EWG Tap Water Quality Database as another resource for information.

Let It Rain!

Friday, February 28, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Products, Water Safety


Finally, some good news! This weekend’s forecast for most of California calls for heavy rain and snow over most of the state. While this is very welcome news for the drought-stricken Golden State, it may also create flooding and debris flows.  Rain runoff and flooding pose the potential for elevated levels of contaminants ending up in the surface and ground waters that are the source of residential drinking water. 

For these reasons, it’s important to have a fresh, high quality water filter available that will strip contaminants from your water source. sells only the highest quality Multipure drinking water filtration systems that are NSF-certified and have a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer. 

If you are unsure of what contaminants are reduced by a Multipure drinking water system, you can check out the NSF certifications list on our website by clicking here.

Let it rain, but stay safe – filter your water!

Gambling With Your Health?

Friday, February 21, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Water Safety

A major chemical spill in Charleston, WV. A coal ash spill in Virginia and North Carolina. A dike failure in Tennessee. Flooded farms that spread fecal matter and fertilizers. Ongoing droughts. And every day, the nation adds to the chronic, ongoing pollution of its drinking water with PPCPs (pharmaceuticals and personal care products).  While your water source may be safe today, are these events gambling with your health?

National Geographic, one of the nation’s most trusted sources for educational information, wrote a thought-provoking article that outlines the severity of these occurrences.

All of the above events have happened within the United States in the past decade alone.  While the majority of water treatment facilities are safe, it only takes an accidental leak such as the January 2014 MCHM chemical spill in Charleston to overwhelm the treatment facility.  A coal ash contamination may be even worse, such as the 2008 Tennessee dike failure and the 2000 Kentucky pond failure.  Coal ash contains heavy metals, arsenic, thallium, and other dangerous toxins.  Not only do these events immediately impact the environment (such as contaminating a nearby waterway), there is also lingering toxicity in the soil and nearby freshwater and groundwater sources.

Even the nation’s aging water transportation infrastructure adds to the problem. “In the American Society of Civil Engineers 2013 Report Card for America's Infrastructure, the nation's drinking water infrastructure was given a D grade for aging pipes, some of which date back to the Civil War. ‘At the dawn of the 21st century, much of our drinking water infrastructure is nearing the end of its useful life,’" states the National Geographic article.

There is something you can do to ensure you and your family are protected. Educate yourself on the water quality being delivered to your home. Start by looking at the National Tap Water Quality Database.  Contact your local water authority and request a copy of your local water report. Use an NSF-Certified point-of-use water filtration system like the Multipure family of products.  You CAN beat the odds and protect your home against unexpected water contamination threats.

Fouling the Waters?

Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Water News, Water Safety


There can be political divide in Washington, D.C., but when a gas-drilling operation threatens the waters of the nation’s capital, it is a good sign to see citizens, water utilities, and federal agencies working together to understand the risks involved.

Recently, in a column by Robert McCartney (read it here), it is reported that the gas industry is pursuing the gas drilling method known as “fracking” in the George Washington National Forest.  This forest includes the Appalachian Mountains where the headwaters of the Potomac River are located.  However, local water utilities, local cities and counties near the forest, the Environmental Protection Agency, and citizens are suggesting a decision be delayed until the release of a major study on the effects of fracking by the EPA.

If you believe this is just another problem within the political halls of D.C., or an “inside the Beltway” issue, consider that the decision reached about fracking in National Forests may impact the future of other national forests.  The George Washington National Forest is near to adopting a new 15-year management plan, which may affect decisions made in other national forests throughout the country.

Awareness and involvement is key.  Seek out information regarding fracking near your water source, and get involved in local efforts that support your position. If you are or could be affected by fracking, you can protect yourself and your loved ones by using an effective point-of-use water filtration system, like the ones listed here.

Multipure and 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol

Tuesday, January 21, 2014 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Health, Water News, Water Safety

People everywhere are stunned to learn about the recent water pollution disaster in West Virginia. How could this happen? We all know that accidents happen, but with better oversight they often could have been avoided. But what about the unfortunate citizens of West Virginia who were directly affected by the toxic spill of 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol into their water supply? What now?

Water2Drink's customers who are using or considering purchasing a Multipure Drinking Water Systems want to know if they can use their Multipure water filter to help address this extraordinary water contamination problem. When asked this question, Multipure's resident expert, Multipure VP of Technical Services, Andrew Fenwick, PhD, offered the following comments:

"We do not specifically test for the reduction of 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol. It is not an organic compound included by NSF VOC surrogate testing, nor is there a reduction standard/protocol included in NSF Standards 42 or 53. With that said, based on the chemical nature of 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol and results of past VOC testing, I expect that these filters would be effective at reducing the concentration of 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol in drinking water (along with innumerous other analogous organic contaminants). We are unable to quantify the reduction efficiency or longevity/lifetime, as these characteristics depend on the concentration of the compound in the influent water, the water chemistry (TOC, pH, TDS, etc.), and the compound’s unique reduction characteristics (i.e., its affinity for the filter media).

"But please note that, more than usual for topics like this, and based on the context of the question, I strongly caution the use of carbon block filters based on 'the concentration of the compound in the influent water.' These filters are highly effective at reducing numerous organic contaminants, but typically these contaminants are present in ppb (ug/L) concentrations. Higher concentrations (high ppb to ppm; i.e., high ug/L to mg/L) or above potentially suffer two ill-effects: inadequate contact time (more contaminant needs more contact with the filter media) and inadequate capacity (with adsorption technology, there is a limit to the amount of active sites before the filters become saturated/exhausted). Without knowing the concentration (or range in concentrations), I would not recommend the use of these filters as the primary treatment method. After primary treatment/remediation has taken place, I think these filters are an excellent technology to ensure reduction of residual 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol in the distribution system and provide cleaner water for the long term."

Leaded or Unleaded?

Monday, November 18, 2013 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Health, Water Safety

That used to be the question at gasoline pumps up until the 1970’s.  Leaded gasoline was phased out about 1975.  But since that time, lead has continued to be identified in other products such as paint, canned food, glazed ceramics, leaded crystal, mini-blinds, and imported food.  With increased awareness of lead poisoning, most of these products have been modified to reduce or eliminate lead.  However, lead can still be found in drinking water!

According to information from the New York State Dept. of Health, lead seldom occurs naturally in water supplies.   Rather, it primarily enters the water system as materials containing lead are corroded in the water distribution system, and also by the use of lead-based solder within plumbing products.  (You can read the detailed NY State Health Dept. information regarding sources of lead by clicking here.)

It has long been recommended to avoid ingesting lead to avoid lead poisoning. Children in particular are most commonly affected by lead poisoning, but you do continue to accumulate lead in your body as an adult unless you actively avoid lead exposure.  One way to do this is to use a water filtration system that is NSF-certified for lead reduction.  All Multipure Drinking Water Filtration Systems are certified for lead reduction as well as other contaminants, such as mercury and VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).  Do your research and verify that your water filtration system is NSF-certified!

You can find Multipure’s complete line of certified water filtration systems at  Insist on “unleaded” – fresh, filtered water for yourself and your loved ones!

How Good Are Your Pipes?

Friday, November 8, 2013, in Water News, Water Safety


In focusing on the improvement of your drinking water, an often overlooked topic is the condition of your water supply distribution system.  Most cities had their greatest population growth and infrastructure expansions during the late 1800’s, around World War I, through the 1920’s, and post-World War II.  The materials, lifespan, and even the manufacturing processes of the pipes laid during these times, all affect the quality of the water delivered to your home today.

The Water Science and Technology Board released their first report of The Committee on Public Water Supply Distribution Systems: Assessing and Reducing Risks in 2005, which studied the public water supply distribution systems and their potential risks. Since the report was requested by the EPA, it was written toward a more governmental perspective. However, we feel our customers should begin to learn more about our aging water distribution infrastructure, specifically by reading Section 2, Trends Relevant to the Deterioration of Drinking Water in Distribution Systems.  Understanding the potential problems can lead you to make a more educated decision about taking personal control of your water filtration choice.

Regardless of the condition of your water distribution infrastructure, a Multipure Drinking Water System from will reduce a wide variety of contaminants of aesthetic and health concern.  Multipure water filters are independently performance tested and certified by NSF International.  Please visit for more information on protecting your health.

What Do You Drink When You Travel?

Friday, October 11, 2013 - Posted by Water2Drink, in Products

If you often travel by air, you want to keep hydrated to lessen the effects of jet lag.  One of the best known ways to keep hydrated is to drink plenty of water before and during your flights.

In the past, airplane water was notorious for containing dangerous levels of bacteria such as coliform, which indicates the presence of E. coli.  Fortunately, in response to the EPA’s initiatives to reduce or eliminate coliform on planes, most airlines now serve only bottled water by the glass.  One or two small glasses are not nearly enough water to consume on a typical four-hour flight.  Alternatively, many travelers will buy bottled water in the airport to carry onto the plane.  But both of these actions require enormous use of natural resources to produce and distribute the plastic bottles, and adds to the ever-increasing problem of plastic in the environment.

A cost effective, environment-friendly option is to carry your own water bottle that filters the water as you drink it.  Multipure has introduced the wriggle™ Portable Filtered Water Bottle to address this issue.  A traveler can carry the empty bottle through security checkpoints, then fill it from any water fountain or water faucet.  The wriggle™ treats many contaminants, just like Multipure’s industry leading water filtration systems, available in a portable 30-fl oz. design. offers the wriggle™ in either blue or gray, or in a two-pack (one of each color).

A wriggle™ Portable Filtered Water Bottle is the perfect traveling companion!
