Pesticides in Drinking Water
CB Tech Pesticide Water Filtration Systems
While you may not think that pesticides in your water are a concern, pesticides make their way into drinking water more often than you might think. If you live or work in an area where pesticides are commonly used, you should almost certainly concern yourself with the possibility of pesticides in your drinking water supply. Fortunately, if you use a CB Tech Drinking Water Filtration System like the CB-VOC, CB-As or Water Guardian to protect yourself from contaminants, you can also benefit from the dramatic reduction of pesticide concentration in your water.
Why It Is Important to Have a Quality Water Filter to Remove Pesticides
Pesticides are chemicals designed to kill insects and other pests before they can destroy crops and other food supplies. These are synthetic organic chemicals created specifically for this purpose. However, as anyone who has ever washed off a piece of fruit before eating it knows, these pesticides do not simply disappear once they have done their job. They can easily enter your groundwater through agricultural runoff and find their way into your plumbing where you can ingest them with your drinking water or while cooking or bathing.
While pesticides are designed to be toxic to insects and not humans, they are still poisons you do not want to ingest.
