Product provides safe water for an entire home
The Pioneer lead and cyst filtration system is a first-of-its-kind whole-house lead removal system. This point-of-entry (POE) filtration system starts at the source and gives peace of mind throughout the entire home. Soluble lead is invisible, odorless and tasteless, and it needs to be chemically removed from water. This product removes not only soluble, but also particulate forms of lead at 99.62% for 100,000 gal at 4.51 gal per minute (gpm), including peak flow rates up to 8 gpm.
In additions to lead, the patented Pioneer system removes greater than 99.5% of Giardia and Cryptosporidium, as well as chlorine and chloramine. Giardia and Cryptosporidium are waterborne parasites that cause diarrheal disease, are very resistant to chlorine-based disinfectants, and are common in drinking and recreational waters.
Lead can enter drinking water when service lines that contain lead corrode, especially where the water has high acidity or low mineral content that corrodes pipes and fixtures, most often from the pipes that carry water from the water treatment plant to water mains supplying homes. Lead release is heavily influenced by the chemistry of the water delivered by the water system and by physical disturbances such as road construction or water main replacements. There is no safe level of lead for the human body, and unlike other metals, it has no useful biological function.
The Pioneer POE filtration system houses a strategically designed nominal 0.5-μ filter to remove both soluble and particulate forms of lead contamination from the whole house in a single filter.
Pioneer is certified by IAPMO R&T against NSF/ANSI Standard 53 for lead, cysts and material safety requirements, and by NSF Intl. against NSF/ANSI Standards 44 and 61 for materials and structural integrity requirements.
