Tips for choosing a drinking water filter for your home.

If you find Lead, Arsenic, Nitrate or other contaminants in your water supply what can you do? The best remediation is to eliminate the source of the contamination, but sometimes that's not immediately possible. Installing filters can be a good option for mitigating your exposure to Lead and other harmful contaminants.

Not all drinking water filters are created equal. When choosing a filter it's important to select one that is third-party certified to reduce the levels of contaminants. The NSF International is an organization that certifies and provides resources about reducing your exposure to harmful contaminants in drinking water. 

Here's a great video that shows how NSF scientists put these filters to the test some tips for selecting a filter for your home.
