Pioneer Whole House Lead Reduction System (Housing Only), No Cartridges Included.
This Pioneer Whole House lead reduction system is specifically designed at a 0.5-micron nominal filtration rating, to remove both particulate and soluble lead from your drinking water. Soluble lead is invisible, odorless, tasteless, and needs to be chemically removed from water. Particulate lead is like a tiny grain of sand that needs to be physically removed from water. The Pioneer point of entry filter is strategically designed to remove both forms of lead contamination from the whole house in a single filter.
Not only does Pioneer remove heavy metals such as lead, but it also removes and/or reduces chlorine, chloramine, and other harmful contaminants in your water, including >99.95% of cysts. The Pioneer POE (point of entry) filter has been tested for use at standard and peak flow rates for both forms of lead. The Water Quality Platinum Seal and UPC shield demonstrate the certification by IAPMO R&T.
How does this system remove Soluble/Ionic Lead?
Pioneer binders are designed to chemically react with soluble lead to create an ionic bond, kinetically removing lead from the water. Ionic bonding is a chemical bond that involves the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charges ions, and is the primary interaction occurring in ionic compounds. Ionic bonds form when a nonmetal (binder/adsorbent) and a metal (lead) exchange electrons as they do in the Pioneer system.
How does this system remove Particulate Lead?
The Pioneer filter is rated at a nominal 0.5 micron level and is specifically engineered to physically remove and filter lead particles from water which are often found as a result of corroded lead pipes.
Easy to understand LED Replacement Notifications:
The real-time Dynamic LED system monitors water and flow rate and provides a visual color-coded notification to the homeowner, letting them know when to replace their filter.
- GREEN LED - Filter is Good
- YELLOW LED - Change Soon 10% Filter Life Remaining
- RED LED - Change now
This system has been tested according to NSF/ANSI 53 for the reduction of lead and cyst. The concentration of lead in water entering the system (0.15 mg/L +/- 10%) was reduced to a concentration less than or equal to the permissible limit (0.010 mg/L) for water leaving the system, as specified in NSF/ANSI 53.
Can be used to Reduce PFOS / PFOA in Water with proper cartridges.
