There are several steps you can take to address potential risks from lead in water:
|Best time of day?||How often?||For how long?||When to stop?|
Not all home treatment devices can remove lead in water. When purchasing a water treatment device, make sure it is certified under NSF/ANSI 53 to remove lead. Search for certified products at NSF International or Water Quality Association.
Use cold, filtered tap water for drinking, cooking, preparing infant formula, beverages and ice.
The only way to know with certainty if you have lead at the tap is to have your water tested by a certified laboratory. If you are concerned that your family is at risk, use a state-certified laboratory. The RWA laboratory is included in that list and offers a test for lead for $25. Home test kits are also available, but we cannot attest to their accuracy.
