Lead and PFAS/PFOS, can be found in drinking water all across North America. Lead poisoning is proven to cause developmental and a myriad of other health issues, particularly in children. PFAS/PFOS (often called “forever chemicals”) are believed to cause cancer, even when present in very trace amounts.  These substances represent a very real health threat and should be removed from drinking water, particularly when any state and federal Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL’s) are exceeded. WCC (Water Control Corporation) is proud to partner with Enpress LLC, an innovative American water treatment manufacturer, to offer the Pioneer system. Put simply, the Pioneer is the best product on the market when it comes to removal of lead, and PFAS/PFOS.

System Design

Pioneer Systems feature a patented cartridge filter system, making media very quick/easy to replace.  Simply turn the inlet and outlet valves to the bypass position, bleed pressure with the pressure relief valve, drain water from the tank (as desired) to minimize splashing, open the unit, then remove and replace the cartridge.  As the unit refills, use the pressure relief button to bleed out any excess air.  The unique Activated Carbon block is the only product in the marketplace for lead and PFAS/PFOS removal that is landfill-friendly and does not require incineration.  Also, cartridges are only replaced when necessary, as an internal water meter keeps track of how many gallons of water pass through the system.  Because of this meter, the media cartridge typically lasts 1-2 years.  When it does come time to replace the cartridge, it can be easily purchased via a local plumber or via https://shop.watercontrolinc.com/. What’s more, Pioneer Systems also remove chlorine, chloramine, and cysts (certain microorganisms down to 0.5 micron) from water.
