What's in your cup?

It’s no secret that water supports life—which is why polluted drinking water has become a top environmental concern. Chemical contaminants from a variety of sources are widespread within the global water table, with even glacier melt found to release organic and chemical pollutants into nearby waterways. Global water contaminants include chemicals from agricultural runoff, manufacturing, and transport, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, and emerging contaminants, in addition to other sources. While the Safe Water Drinking Act passed by the United States Congress in 1974 establishes national standards for safer drinking water, additional filtration can help to further reduce the presence of unwanted contaminants. Home water filtration can also target contaminants that are not included under current regulatory guidelines, such as "forever chemicals."

Brondell water filtration technologies are grounded in science with your health and safety in mind. Choose the level of filtration you need, and the installation style that best suits your space. Our product lineup includes carbon filtration, reverse osmosis filtration, and specialized filtration; single and multiple stage systems that install on your countertop or below your kitchen sink.

Medicine belongs in the cabinet—not in your water supply.

Dissolved pharmaceuticals are often present in tap water, and levels of both over-the-counter and prescription drugs within the water supply are increasing. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) reports that drug manufacturing is a leading contributor to pharmaceuticals within the environment. Other means of pharmaceutical water contamination include improper disposal of medications, agricultural & farming applications, and human elimination.

The Brondell Capella Reverse Osmosis Under Sink Water Filtration System and the Brondell Coral Three Stage Under Sink Carbon Block Water Filtration System are certified by the WQA to reduce emerging contaminants, including pharmaceuticals such as Ibuprofen, Atenolol, and Naproxen from tap water. For a full list of contaminants reduced under NSF/ANSI standard 401, visit the performance data sheets for these products.

What about private water?

For those who receive water from a well or private water supply, routine testing for contaminants is essential to ensure your water is safe to drink. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests annual water testing, with caveats for more frequent testing based on age and medical conditions of members in the household. Common contaminants found in private well water include:

 

  • bacteria, viruses, parasites, and cysts
  • pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers
  • pharmaceuticals, disinfectants, and sulfates
  • heavy metals, nitrates, and arsenic

 

Flooding and runoff can contribute to contamination, along with natural disasters, unsafe agricultural practices, unregulated waste disposal, and human interference. In conjunction with routine testing, preventative practices, and regularly scheduled maintenance, a water filtration system can help ensure safer drinking water.

What does WQA certification of NSF/ANSI standards mean?

Brondell water filtration systems are certified by the Water Quality Association (WQA) to National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards. NSF and ANSI standards promise that a product meets strict criteria for public health protection. NSF and ANSI work together to ensure manufacturer compliance of these set standards.

What's in your water? Here's how to find out.

Water quality varies widely throughout different regions of the United States, and can even have noticeable variances within municipalities. To start uncovering what’s in your tap water, check with your local water supplier. State agencies are responsible for ensuring that drinking water meets National Primary Drinking Water Regulations. Most community water systems also provide customers with an annual water quality report. This report may contain information about:

  • contaminants found in the water supply
  • possible health effects of any known contaminants
  • the presence of emerging contaminants, such as PFAS and pharmaceuticals
  • chemicals used during sanitization
  • details about the water source and watershed

Note that governmental regulations and guidelines do allow for exposure to chemicals and contaminants that you may wish to avoid in your drinking water. Additionally, while your annual water report can be useful, it does not include exposure to lead or other heavy metals after your water leaves the treatment facility. Home testing is necessary if you suspect lead exposure due to outdated pipes and plumbing fixtures. You may also consider home testing if your water has an unpalatable taste or smell, is discolored or foamy, or if you notice an abrupt change in quality. For additional insight on home testing, visit the EPA’s Home Water Testing Fact Sheet.

Worry less and hydrate more with reverse osmosis.

What is reverse osmosis?

Reverse osmosis is a process of water filtration. During this process, water molecules are separated from contaminants. Reverse osmosis (RO) offers powerful filtration of tap water and is capable of removing more contaminants than carbon-based filtration systems alone. All RO systems feature a semipermeable membrane filter. As water is forced through this filter, small water molecules are separated from larger molecules—contaminants like metals, pesticides, PFAS, and more. Filtered water moves into a pressurized storage tank, while contaminant-rich water is diverted out of the system and into your wastewater supply line.

Reverse osmosis and efficiency.

The process of reverse osmosis can result in excessive amounts of waste. Traditional RO systems can divert many times more water than they store, sometimes wasting up to 20 gallons of water for every gallon of filtered water. In addition, systems may try to “top off” the storage tank, creating back pressure that leads to further waste. At Brondell, we knew we had to do better. Our RO systems are designed to maximize efficiency, saving you money and protecting one of our planet’s greatest resources—drinking water. Brondell reverse osmosis water filtration systems operate with maximum efficiency, and are designed with water-saving components so that you never have to choose between the planet’s health and your own.

Got hard water? A filter can help with that.

Hard water is high in dissolved minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. Water hardness is measured in grains per gallon (GPG), with moderately hard water falling between 3-7 GPG, hard water between 7-10 GPG, and very hard water at 10-14 GPG. Around the home, hard water can lead to staining, build-up, and less sudsing while you’re soaping up in the shower. At your tap, these minerals lead to water that has an undesirable flavor—sometimes described as bitter or chalky—that can make it hard to want to stay hydrated.

Reverse osmosis offers powerful filtration of a wide range of contaminants and minerals, including those that charcoal filters miss. For water that tastes and smells refreshingly pure, consider a reverse osmosis filtration system. Ours include additional stages of carbon block filtration and WQA certification, so you’ll never have to wonder what’s in your cup.

A green thumb starts with clean water.

The moments you take to care for your indoor plants, windowsill herb gardens, and container veggies is time well spent. And just like you, indoor and outdoor plants can benefit from filtered water. Filtration removes chlorine and chlorine byproducts that can sap your plants of their vigor and vibrance, along with herbicides and pesticides that may be present in city water. Filtration helps keep your plants organic—exactly how you (and nature) intended.

Fill your (measuring) cup.

From steaming and sautéing, to soaking and stir-frying, water is a main ingredient in the kitchen. Make sure it’s the best. Many contaminants found in tap water are still present after cooking, and in some cases, can even become more concentrated, especially when water is boiled or absorbed into ingredients. Make the switch to filtered water while you’re cooking in the kitchen—better flavor, improved texture, and healthier moments await.

Filtered water for pregnancy–and beyond.

From the earliest days of pregnancy, through birth and beyond, filtered water provides parents the peace of mind that comes with providing the very best for baby. Count on a Brondell water filtration system to reduce bacteria, viruses, lead and other heavy metals, agricultural chemicals, and more. Filtered tap water is less wasteful than bottled or distilled water, and comes without risk of microplastic and BPA exposure, which can also harm the development of infants, toddlers, and young children.

Better breast milk.

Breast milk contains all of the nutrients and antibodies that babies need during a crucial period of growth and cognitive development. And while the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) maintains that “breast is best,” it is worth noting that contaminants present in the water table have been found in human milk. Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances, herbicides, and pesticides ingested by nursing mothers can pass to baby through breast milk. Mothers wishing to reduce infant exposure to these chemicals should consider switching to filtered water, in addition to maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle. Staying hydrated boosts breast milk production—so make sure you’re drinking the very best.

Better bottles.

When preparing bottles from powdered formula, many pediatricians recommend using filtered water as a better alternative to boiled water. While boiling water can kill waterborne pathogens and help to remove chlorine, the process can also increase levels of other contaminants, including herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals, and “forever chemicals” such as PFAS. As water boils, vapor evaporates, leaving heavy contaminants behind. Bottled water isn’t any better—the Environmental Working Group (EWG) reports findings of bacteria, nitrates, and ammonia in bottled water, along with PET microplastics. Filtered water is a best bet for making formula, filling sippy cups, and providing your baby with tasty, top-quality hydration.

An (unsafe) mouthful: per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS and PFOS) have been showing up in the headlines—and also in the global water supply. If you haven't heard of these “forever chemicals,” or just want to know more, here are some key facts to consider.  

PFAS are present in contaminated soil, air, and drinking water as a result of manufacturing, hazardous waste disposal, and widespread use within the environment. These chemicals can also be found within homes and other indoor spaces. The presence of PFAS and PFOS are common throughout the global water supply, occurring in both freshwater and seawater, as well as within public and private drinking water systems.

Sources of PFAS pollution.

chemical production and product manufacturing
personal and body care products, including lotions, cosmetics, and dental floss
non-stick cookware
grease-resistant food containers and fast food packaging
fertilizers
firefighting foam

PFAS and PFOS are being found in increasing amounts throughout the United States and worldwide.

A growing body of research links exposure of these chemicals to a range of illnesses and chronic conditions, including:

  • developmental delays in children
  • decreased fertility and accelerated puberty
  • thyroid damage
  • hormone disruption
  • liver disease
  • obesity and high cholesterol
  • specific cancers, including kidney, prostate, and testicular cancers
  • reduced immunity and reduced vaccine response

While more studies are needed to establish direct correlations between these illnesses and the presence of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, scientific concern is growing. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that “One common characteristic of concern of PFAS chemicals is that many break down very slowly and can build up in people, animals, and the environment over time.” Children may be more susceptible to the negative effects of these chemicals due smaller body composition and increased oral exposure via contaminated surfaces.

Water filtrations systems for PFAS and PFOS reduction.

Using a WQA-certified water filter is an effective and immediate way to reduce your family’s PFAS and PFOS exposure. Charcoal filtration and reverse osmosis filtration both offer significant and reliable reduction of these chemicals. Don’t settle for a system based on manufacturer claims alone. To ensure the reduction of “forever chemicals,” shop for a system certified to the following NSF/ANSI standards: 53, 58, 401.

Medicine belongs in the cabinet—not in your water supply.

Hydration Benefits.

Hydration is key to good health.
Your body is powered by water. Every cell and system within it depends on high-quality hydration. Make sure you’re giving your body only the best—water with reduced contaminants, heavy metals, environmental chemicals, and chlorine taste and odor.

Here are just a few of the many benefits of staying hydrated.

  • helps regulate body temperature
  • removes waste
  • helps convert food into energy
  • protects vital organs
  • boosts immune function
  • cushions joints
  • transports nutrients to cells
    Top-quality water for you (and your furry friend, too).
    Household pets can benefit from drinking filtered water. Similar to young children, most pets have a lower body mass than adults and may be more susceptible to negative health effects associated with heavy metals, PFAS, and pharmaceuticals found in tap water. A high level of total dissolved solids (TDS) is linked to tear staining in dogs, while excess copper can cause extensive liver damage. Finicky pets may be turned off by tap water’s chlorine taste and odor, leaving them less likely to drink, and leading to dehydration—a key contributor when it comes to urinary tract infections (UTIs) in household animals. A great rule of thumb: if you’re uncomfortable drinking water straight from your faucet, don’t serve it up to your fluffy pal, either. Fill your pet’s bowl with tasty, filtered water—and relax knowing you’re providing the best.

      Healthier hydration begins with fewer contaminants.

      Clean water isn’t a luxury—it’s a foundation of health. But ensuring that your tap water is clean has become an increasingly difficult task. Environmental and societal changes have led to increased contaminants found within the global water supply.

      Bottled water isn’t better.

      Bottled water isn’t just terrible for the planet, it may not be good for you, either. In fact, bottled water may contain as many—or sometimes more—contaminants as tap water, including arsenic, PFAS, and lead. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets regulations for tap water, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) applies these same regulations to bottled water. The EPA urges all Americans to investigate the quality of their drinking water, whether it’s from a tap or a bottle, before making decisions about what to drink.

      Investigation by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that water bottles made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic can leach upwards of 80 different chemicals into bottled water when exposed to sunlight, heat, or while in storage. In addition, bottled water frequently contains microscopic polypropylene particles originating from the water bottle cap. Phthalates, arsenic, and microbial cysts may also be present in bottled water.

      Ready to break up with bottled water, but worried about sacrificing convenience? Our Coral, Circle, and Capella filtration systems each include a modern water dispenser faucet as part of the filter system, making it simple to fill your reusable water bottle for healthy hydration away from home.

      Is sparkling water good for you?

      Some brands of fizzy water or seltzer water have been found to contain PFAS. Investigation by Consumer Reports found toxic PFAS chemicals in several popular sparkling water brands. For better bubbly beverages, invest in a high-quality water purifier and at-home seltzer maker, and enjoy higher-quality sipping without the contaminants—and without the single-use container.

      The environmental impact of bottled water.

      15 billion
      Americans consumed 15 billion gallons of bottled water in 2020.
      30%
      The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that only 30% of plastic bottles are recycled. Unlike glass and aluminum, most plastic bottles can only be recycled once.
      100 million
      Globally, 100 million water bottles are used every day.

      Learn more about the WQA and NSF/ANSI standards.

      NSF
      NSF helps to guarantee product integrity at every level, from product testing, product components, factory inspection, and more. It’s important to note that certification is not a one-time award, but an ongoing relationship between the manufacturer and NSF, including performance testing, literature review, and a yearly facility audit. If a product fails to meet the listed criteria at any time, NSF certification can be revoked.
      ANSI
      ANSI offers accreditation to companies that manufacture a broad range of products, including reverse osmosis water filters, inline water filters, and countertop water filtration systems. As an organization, ANSI does not develop performance-based standards. The institute instead provides a structured system for standard development, quality assessment, and product integrity assurance.
      What is WQA Gold Seal Certification?
      The Water Quality Association (WQA) upholds the standard for residential water quality. The WQA provides a Gold Seal Certification program to help manufacturers assure their filtration devices meet national safety and performance standards. Products certified by the WQA have undergone independent, rigorous laboratory testing. Certification ensures that consumers can trust manufacturer reduction claims regarding filter performance.

      Brondell is proud to hold WQA certification for multiple systems in our water filtration range.

      What’s behind the numbers? WQA certification explained.

      You know you want cleaner water. Certifications by the WQA make it clear exactly what contaminants a certified system can reduce. These certifications are listed under NSF/ANSI standards and are noted by number. These numbers then fall into one of two additional categories—health-related and aesthetic.

      Health-related certifications are based upon the reduction of chemicals and contaminants from tap water, such as heavy metals, pesticides, arsenic, fluoride, and chlorine byproducts.

      Aesthetic certifications are based upon the taste, odor, color, turbidity, and mineral content (hardness) of your water. Chlorine and chloramine, which are commonly used for water sanitization, fall into this category.

      NSF/ANSI standards 53, 58 and 401 are health-related reduction claims.

      NSF/ANSI standard 42 is an aesthetic-related reduction claim.

      Standard 53
      Exposure to PFAS chemicals has been linked to low infant birth weights, immune system and hormone disruption, and specific cancers . The United States Congress has begun measures to regulate the presence of PFAS in municipal tap water with the PFAS Action Act, but these “forever chemicals” currently remain unregulated. NSF/ANSI standards 53 and 58 are the main certification standards for PFAS reduction.

      Standard 53 also includes reduction of specific contaminants known to cause poor health effects, including heavy metals such as mercury and lead, arsenic, waterborne bacteria, pesticides and herbicides, the gasoline additive MTBE, trihalomethanes, and more. Standard 53 ensures your carbon water filter system will reduce unwanted contaminants in your family’s drinking water.
      Standard 58
      This standard applies to reverse osmosis water filtration systems. Reverse osmosis filtration works differently than adsorptive (carbon) filtration, and is capable of reducing a higher number of contaminants than carbon-based systems. Standard 58 ensures the reduction of lead and other heavy metals, arsenic, unwanted fluoride, and more.
      Standard 42
      Standard 42 includes reduction of chlorine and chloramine taste and odor, in addition to sediment and other particulates. If your tap water comes from a municipal water treatment plant, it is likely that it has been treated with chlorine or chloramines. Both offer reliable sanitization of regular water and kill a vast range of bacteria, viruses, and waterborne pathogens. Chlorine and chloramine are also incredibly effective at keeping your water clean after it leaves the water treatment plant, traveling miles through pipes where treated water can be exposed to new contaminants, bacteria, molds, and viruses.

      Sanitization is necessary for providing safe drinking water. Yet chlorine and chloramine are often still present in water as it flows from your tap and into your cup, lending it an unpalatable taste and smell. Standard 42 ensures that your water tastes pure and delicious—so that you’re more likely to hydrate.

      Standard 401
      Standard 401 certifies the reduction of contaminants of emerging concern (also known as emerging contaminants). Emerging contaminants are a class of substances that have been identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for their presence within the global water supply. The risk that these contaminants pose to human health and to the environment is not currently understood. Emerging contaminants are not regulated by the EPA, but may become regulated over time as greater information is gathered about their health effects.

      Contaminants of emerging concern include over-the-counter and prescription medicines, industrial chemicals, flame retardants, chemical compounds commonly found in soaps, detergents, and personal care products, antibiotics, herbicides, and pesticides. PFAS, which are found in a variety of household products such as non-stick cookware, food packaging, and stain repellents, are also increasingly found in the global water supply and have been classified by the EPA as a family of emerging contaminants.
