Hexavalent Chromium in Drinking Water

A recent study revealed that Hexavalent Chromium otherwise known as Chromium 6 has been found many public water supplies across the United States. In 2000, the movie “Erin Brockovich” brought attention to Hexavalent Chromium for the first time. At the time, it was thought to be an isolated issue. However, recent studies have proven otherwise.

You may ask yourself, “How does this affect me and what can I do about it?”

Well, first of all knowledge is power. We cannot protect ourselves from something we do not know about. Now that we are aware of this known carcinogen in our water supply, we can now take the steps necessary to remove it.

If you currently have a reverse osmosis drinking water system you have been protected from it without realizing it. And for others, it’s as simple as installing a reverse osmosis system under your kitchen sink. Reverse osmosis is the most efficient technology on the market today to remove it. Besides protecting us from Hexavalent Chromium, the reverse osmosis system is removing many more harmful contaminants, including Fluoride and Pharmaceuticals, to name just a few. The bottom line is Hexavalent Chromium is harmful and no one should be drinking water containing it. Here at we offer top-of-the-line reverse osmosis systems for your home or office.
