Including Lead and Arsenic V.

Microbiological contaminants causing microbes in water are unhealthy and even life threatening. For example, bacteria that live in the intestinal tracts of humans and other warm blooded animals, such as Escherichia coli, SalmonellaShigella, andVibrio, can contaminate water if feces enters the water.

Water Born VirusBacteria, and Parasites such as Cryptosporidium  
and Giardia‎:

These Microrganisims cause cysts which attach to your gut preventing you from absorbing nutrients.

Once in your gut cryptosporidiosis will result.

What are the symptoms of cryptosporidiosis?

The most common symptom of cryptosporidiosis is watery diarrhea. There may also be abdominal cramps, nausea, low-grade fever, dehydration, and weight loss. Symptoms usually develop 4 to 6 days after infection but may appear anytime from 2 to 10 days after infection.

Parasites are Chlorine resistant

Chlorine is the # 1 method used in municipalities for water disinfection.
  • Cryptosporidium and Giardia are the most common protozoa of concern in U.S. drinking water.
  • They are fecal, oral intestinal parasites of many warm-blooded animals.
  • There are several species of each, and some can infect humans.
  • Cryptosporidium has a more complex reproductive cycle, although both can survive in water or food environments, and they reproduce and become infectious in the host’s intestines…
  • Water filration is used to get rid of parasites
Multipure Commentary:
Multipure Drinking Water Systems have been certified by NSF International to reduce the widest range of contaminants of health concern including Cryptosporidium reduction under Standard 53.

Water-based infection are Difficult to Control. 
Post treatment in municipalities as water sits in storage tanks in distribution pipes and plumbing in your home.
Your water is not sterile when it reaches your home.

Is Drinking Water Safe For Pregnant Moms and Children?

Is drinking Water Safe For Pregnant Moms and Children?


A woman's exposure to minute quantities of certain pharmaceuticals while she is pregnant can harm the developing fetus. Such exposure at a critical time in the fetal growth cycle can cause deformities, cancer or subtle effects on a child's ability to learn. Some health specialists believe no dose of synthetic hormones is safe for the developing embryo and fetus. Read More:  There are sensitive stages of life when it’s best to minimize exposure, such as the elderly, the very young, and pregnant women. 

There is growing evidence that some of these chemicals disrupt the endocrine balance in various ecological species (endocrine disruptors) and can adversely affect fish and other aquatic species living in the contaminated waters.


Contaminants of emerging concern are increasingly being detected in surface waters, these compounds are in the surface water we drink. EPA does not have any guidelines about pharmaceuticals in drinking water. Underfunded and under attack, the EPA has failed to enforce water testing and treatment rules. About half of the prescription drugs and other newly emerging contaminants in sewage are removed by treatment plants.
That’s the finding of a new report by the International Joint Commission, a consortium of officials from the United States and Canada who study the Great Lakes. These compounds are increasingly being detected in surface waters, driven largely by advances in analytical detection technologies, enabling constituents to be measured down to levels that were previously thought not possible
New research finds that arsenic levels once deemed 'safe' for drinking water may actually harm expectant moms and babies.

We know that if these compounds are in surface water, and the surface water is used for drinking water, then the compounds will be in drinking water as well.

All About Lead Poisoning

Posted by crystalcleandrinkingwater on February 2, 2016 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (0)


By Carole Allen

Lead is one of the oldest metals on the planet, it never goes away. Lead dating is used for dating and analyzing geological samples as old as the earth. We began producing lead in 3000 BC. The Romans used it for water pipes and added it to wine to sweeten it even though they were aware of the dangers to their health and the insanity it caused.  Known as "plumbism" it was thought to be responsible for the madness of the Roman Emperors and the infertility of Julius Caesar. He was extremely sexually active but only bore one child. Some say the fall of the Roman Empire was due to lead in the drinking water. During the Renaissance lead was used by the Catherine de Medici for a slow poison on those who got in her way, known then as poudre de la succession, "succession powder". 

Fast forward to the 20th century and we began using it in gasoline, building construction, paint, pesticides, plastics, pipes, cans for canned foods, batteries, bullets and is used today in dentist's offices is a radiation shield in the heavy apron. 

Its use was favored by the automobile industry because it reduced engine knock. DuPont, GM, Standard Oil (Exxon) continued to use it in dangerous levels from 1925 to 1978 for profit while aware of the toxic effects. By hiring physicians to say it was non toxic they were able to continue its use. It has been estimated that 68 million children were exposed to lead in toxic levels for 1927 to 1987. Knowing all they do about the toxicity, they still sell it to third world countries.   


Lead doesn't break down or go away. It is always with us and all that lead is still in the air, our bodies, water and the soil. Lead effects the nervous system, causes gastrointestinal ailments, and brain dammage, among other things. No matter what we do we can't get rid of it and the best we can do is make sure it isn't in our drinking water. In order to do that we need a Drinking Water System that reduces lead to the finest microns.

Viruses in drinking water

Posted by Carole Allen on June 28, 2015 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (0)


Viruses are submicroscopic particles that infect cells.
Dr. Joseph Cotruvo, Technical Editor March 4, 2014 (Water Tech)

What are they:

  • Viruses consist of RNA or DNA wrapped in a protein coat. They are considered to be quasi-living organisms. They are parasitic at the cellular level.
  • Viruses are submicroscopic particles that infect cells. They enter a cell and take over the DNA function so that it replicates the virus, then multiple copies of the virus are released from the cell from leakage or rupture.
  • Viruses are very small but their molecular weights are very large. For example, the molecular weight of a poliovirus is about 2,600,000 daltons and adenovirus is about 157 million daltons. By comparison, the molecular weight of chloroform is only about 120 daltons (dalton is the molecular weight unit that was once grams/mole).
  • Probably all organisms, even bacteria and plants, have viruses for which they are a host. Viruses are selective and hosts are susceptible only to specific viruses.
  • Bacterial viruses are called phages, e.g. coliphages infect coli bacteria.
  • Numerous viruses are present in air, food, water, surfaces and adsorbed to some particulates.
  • They are fairly stable in the environment, but they are denatured by oxygen, sunlight, heat and disinfectants like chlorine and ozone.
  • Viruses are very different from bacteria. They are much smaller, do not have cell walls and are not free living.
  • Viruses are nanometer-sized and 10 to 100 times smaller than bacteria, which are usually in the one or two micron size range. They are observed by electron microscopy.
  • Some antiviral medications are available; antibiotics are not effective against viruses.
  • The shapes of viruses are very distinctive.

Getting enough water every day is important for your health. Healthy people meet their fluid needs by drinking when thirsty and drinking with meals. Most of your fluid needs are met through the water and beverages you drink. However, you can get some fluids through the foods that you eat. For example, broth soups and foods with high water content such as celery, tomatoes, or melons can contribute to fluid intake.
