What you need to know about PFAS in your water: A 60-second explainer video from Pure Water
PFAS (also known as “Forever Chemicals”) are found in thousands of products – from non-stick pans to fire fighting foam.
PFAS accumulate in both the environment and inside of our bodies.
It’s estimated that up to 110 million Americans could have PFAS-contaminated drinking water.
According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), there is no safe level of PFAS to consume. You do NOT want PFAS in your water.
Exposure to some of these chemicals may result in serious health effects, including cancer, endocrine disruption, accelerated puberty, liver damage, plus immune system and thyroid changes.

What’s the best way to remove PFAS from drinking water?
Although some special filters and reverse osmosis membranes can help for a little while… Over time, they lose effectiveness, and the filters or membranes have to be replaced.
Water distillation is the most consistent, reliable method of water purification to remove PFAS.
