Is a Water Filter a good $$$ Decision?

A new study supported by the Water Quality Research Foundation (WQRF) has clearly demonstrated the $$ benefits of point-of-use (POU) water filters to reduce health risks in drinking water.

Published in the journal Environmental Research from a University of Arizona research team, The study fmade some quite astounding conclusions.

In the case study of Flint, Mich., the calculated lifetime loss to the community from drinking water lead exposure is $435 million. A  five-year in-home activated carbon with lead adsorption capabilities community intervention strategy would have cost $11 million.”

Kim Redden, WQRF foundation relations and research manager said “This is powerful data in terms of cost to society from a drinking water crisis,” . Having WQRF’s research validated in this way brings even more credibility to the water quality industry and the solutions it provides.”

WQRF says a five-year reverse osmosis intervention strategy in every household would cost $26 million. The study also looked at costs of mitigating contaminants and other contaminants holistically, resulting in more economic benefit.

“Consideration of all contaminants listed in this study shows that POU device use in the U.S. is cost beneficial given the wide range of contaminants potentially present in drinking water,” the study stated.

A summary of the project is available on the WQRF website. A two-page summary of the research also is available on WQRF’s website.
