Nitrate & Nitrite Water Filtration Systems

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 57% of domestic water wells are contaminated by nitrates or nitrites. Often the result of runoff from fertilizers or manure and worsened in cold temperatures, nitrate/nitrite water contamination has become an increasing problem throughout the Midwest. Consumed in excess, nitrates and nitrites put pregnant women and infants at high risk for a condition known as methemoglobinemia, which affects the blood’s ability to carry oxygen. In otherwise healthy people, these chemicals can lead to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease or cancer.
While simple RO filters can reduce the presence of nitrates and/or nitrites in your drinking water by about 80%, they do not meet recommended guidelines for water supplies that contain high levels of either contaminant. The best way to ensure a safe water supply for your residential or commercial location is with a water filtration system designed to specifically target both nitrates and nitrites.

How Do Nitrates & Nitrites Enter My Water Supply?

Nitrate contamination is usually the result of fertilizers and livestock waste running off into your water well. Nitrate is more likely to enter your drinking water if you have a shallow well and/or damaged casings and fittings. Improperly maintained septic systems or wells not built within an underground clay barrier are also at risk.

How Do I Know if My Drinking Water is Contaminated with Nitrate/Nitrite?

Nitrates and nitrites do not have any taste, color, or odor, making it difficult to know whether you have a contamination problem. The Michigan Department of Health recommends testing your water for nitrates/nitrites (among other contaminates) once a year. Canney’s can help you set up a professional water test.
