What Are Your Drinking Water Standards?

Friday, February 13, 2015 - by Water2Drink

If your community water system violates drinking water standards, do you trust them when they say “there is nothing you need to do?”

Recently, the town of Wrightsville Beach, NC, experienced a violation of the drinking water standard for #trihalomethanes. While the public notice indicates this is not an emergency, it goes on to list the possible health risks associated with the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system, including #cancer.

The town is working with the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) to bring the contaminant concentration down and into compliance, and that they “anticipate improvements within three months.” The notice also says the public doesn’t need to boil water or take other corrective actions.  But during that three-month period, and for potentially longer, the public is still exposed to trihalomethanes in their drinking water.  If this happened to your water supply, are you willing to risk your health for three months? 

The only way to ensure your health and the safety of your drinking water is to be proactive.  Using a Multipure Drinking Water System allows you to be in control of the quality of your water source.   The Multipure family of filtration products are NSF-certified to reduce trihalomethanes, the offending contaminant, along with dozens of other #contaminants, cysts, and heavy metals. 

Water2Drink believes the consumer should know exactly what contaminants are reduced by using a #Multipure product.  On our website,, we have provided links on each product page to the description, features, documentation, specifications, and “What’s in the Box.”  Simply click on the Products link on our homepage, then click the drinking water system you are researching.  You will find the Performance Data Sheet listed under the “Documentation” tab.

You can’t always trust the water source, but you can trust your Multipure Drinking Water System.
