Pesticides are applied to farmlands, gardens and lawns and can make their way into ground water or surface water systems that feed drinking water supplies. Pesticides are most harmful to humans and animals. Exposures to pesticides may cause a wide variety of both acute health effects such as diarrhea, headache, vomiting, and chronic health effects: aggravate asthma symptoms, increase the risk for cancers and birth defects, or cause damage to the genetic and immune systems.
The best way to decrease contamination caused by pesticides is to use pressure filter filled with activated carbon. Activated carbon is naturally obtained and it can remove not only pesticides but also chlorine and organic solvents.
Activated carbon units WATEX CTO series.
