Before determining the kind of water treatment you’d like to use to reduce the arsenic from your drinking water, testing must first be done to determine the type of arsenic in your water. These different types do require different treatment approaches, which our Skillings technicians can discuss with you.
Next you must determine if you want to treat the water as it comes into your home or at the point of use. Treating water at the point of entry is often used when other minerals or contaminants are in the water, such as iron, manganese, bacteria or radon.
Installing filters on faucets at the kitchen sink or other places you draw drinking water is called a point-of-use treatment. These filters should be installed wherever water is taken for drinking, cooking or making ice. If there are no other contaminants in your water, this method is a simple and cost effective way to reduce arsenic.
