PFAS Removal From Your Family’s Water With One Efficient System

Water all over the country has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS, and our area is not exempt. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

 Eighteen million Americans live in communities where the water systems are in violation of the law. As a mater of fact, the federal agency in charge of making sure those systems are safe not only know these issues exist, they’ve done little to stop them, according to information provided by CNN, which cites multiple sources and water experts.

Our goal is not to scare anyone into getting water treatment, however, educating our local community about water quality is a top priority. We’ve worked with many local families to improve their water and to provide peace-of-mind, knowing the water they drink and bathe in is free of harmful contaminants.

Contact us today to learn more about our professionally installed and serviced drinking water system that reduces PFOS contamination. Fill out the contact form or call 888-360-4388!

What are PFAS, PFOA, PFOS and What’s The Difference Between Them?

In a nutshell, PFAS stands for per- and polyflouralkyl substances, which are synthetic chemicals used to make everyday products we all use (your cell phone, your non-stick pans, some food packaging, most things that used to be made at 3M are made of PFAS). PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid, also referred to as C8) and PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate) are simply two types of PFAS, and the difference between the two is the amount of carbon atoms in the chain of polyflouralkyl. GenX is also considered a PFAS contaminant.

These chemicals have been around for almost 80 years, when they started being manufactured in the 1940’s. Unfortunately, a lot of chemical waste ends up being dumped in the water supply we drink from. Imagine 80 years of chemical waste contaminating the water we use every day.  

The Water Quality Association (WQA.org) tells us exposure to PFAS can happen when we eat food grown in soil contaminated by PFAS or drink water that has been contaminated and not properly filtered out. It can also be released through the household products we use to clean our homes.

Some potential health risks of PFAS exposure are cancer, a weakened immune system, fertility issues, low birth weight for infants, abnormal levels for cholesterol and thyroid hormones, and inflammation of the liver. Other health related issues are still under research.

How Can I Know I Have Safe Drinking Water?

We needed a new iron curtain and water softener. Adam talked to me about the options, and took the time to explain what we really needed. He saved us money and hassle. A few weeks later, Adam did the... installation. It was done quickly with no mess. Highly recommend them.read more

UPDATE - June 25 -After we posted the rating (below) we received a phone call the next day and we discussed the situation. They were great! They returned the money and any monies spent for the... part that didn't fix the problem. In addition, they came and picked up the water softener I replaced.To me that is going over and above. I recommend them 100%. We all make mistakes, but I judge a company with what they do after that mistake as the true measure of a company.We moved into a house with a Whirlpool water softener. After a year it didn't work well so I called around to see who might be able to fix it. They said they did but it would take a week to get someone over. No problem. The technician arrived and said he had been in the business for over 30 years and could fix ANYTHING.When he looked at it he said it needed a new part and I could order it on-line for $40 or $50. I asked him to help me and he said they didn't order anything. I was left on my own to try and figure out what exact part. He said he wouldn't charge me because he didn't do anything. He said we might need a new water softener and it would be around $2,000. He claimed that he had many customers on our street and many of them had iron filters, too. He said there are other ones you can order on line but good luck finding someone to install them.I explained that I had been in the business for 19 years - I just didn't know anything about the Whirlpool brand. He explained that Eco Water (major manufacturer) built them and they were an Eco dealer, too. That convinced me he could fix it.Great! I ordered the correct part, I thought, for $139 and called them back to put it in. Again, several days wait. No problem I felt that he could fix it. He came out, put in the part, and crickets. Same issues as before. To this he said, "I have no idea what is wrong". Maybe a harness. He looked in the truck and he had a harness that would fit - still nothing. He suggested I order one of those for $25 or $30.Then he gave me the bill of $109. I now have $238 into this machine that still isn't working. I did exactly what he said to do. AGain, his comment, "I have no idea what to do". Same comment from a guy who said, "I can fix anything".I wasn't about to invest $2,000 more because I thought we'd be in the house only 3 more years. We have another home in Florida.I took my water to another company to get tested. 23 gpg with 1 ppm of iron. We NEVER installed an iron filter for 1 ppm iron. But, again, I only did the business for 19 years.I'll never do business with them again. I ordered the exact same model that I had for $550. I got the old one out myself and I'm sure I can reinstall the exact same model.Great lesson. I'll never call American Aqua again.read more

Ever since I moved here in 2004 I have been using American Aqua. When my water softener system was installed I was told to only use Duracube. Since 2004, when my water softener system was installed... Duracube is the only salt that has been in my system. You can pull right up to American Aqua, they open the garage door you pulled in and they load your car you don’t even have to step out of your car. How awesome is that. They also offer delivery but I have kids to unload my car.They staff is always so nice. Adam that works there has been there since I started going and he is always so nice and responsible. I have moved twice since I have been here and I have taken my system with me and Adam has always done that work for me. Including my reverse osmosis. Great place. Very conveniently located.P.S. I go to the American Aqua in Howell.read more
