Is Your Household Safe From Lead?

Unfortunately, the tragedy in Flint, Michigan, is just a symptom of a greater drinking-water epidemic in America. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that at least four million households are exposed to high levels of lead in their drinking-water. This means that millions of children are at risk for experiencing developmental delay, learning difficulties, and more harmful effects of lead intake.

Lead Drinking Filters

Where is Lead Found in our Everyday Environment?

Due to lead being easy to extract and work with, it had previously been used in many products like paint, pipes, cosmetics, ceramics, and more. Thanks to federal and state regulatory standards that were put in place around 1980, the amount of lead used in consumer products and work environments has been significantly minimized and, in some cases, eliminated.

Some of the most common sources of lead exposure in the US now include:
  • Lead-based paint in older homes
  • Contaminated soil
  • Household dust
  • Drinking water
  • Lead-glazed pottery

What are the Effects of Lead?

Since drinking water is one of the common sources of lead, many people are concerned about the harmful effects it can have on their health.

Lead can affect almost every organ and system in your body, but affects children and babies differently than it does adults, with children 6 years old and younger being the most negatively affected.

For young children, even low levels of lead in the blood can cause issues such as:
  • Behavior and learning problems
  • Lower IQ and hyperactivity
  • Slowed growth
  • Hearing issues
  • Anemia
For adults, lead can cause:
  • Increased blood pressure and hypertension
  • Decreased kidney function
  • Reproductive problems (in both men and women)

How Does Lead Get into Our Water Supply?

Lead can enter drinking water when service pipes that contain lead corrode. This is even more likely to occur when the water has high acidity levels or low mineral content, which further contributes to the corrosion of pipes and fixtures.

Brass or chrome-plated brass faucets and fixtures with lead solder pose the most common problem. Homes built before 1986 are more likely to contain these types of pipes.
