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 (941) 300-1114!

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?

Joe did a great job for me, we just purchased a new home and needed to understand the system, how it works and anything that needs to be looked after on a regular basis. Joe explained everything and was very knowledgeable about the system. Joe and Certain Services are experts on water treatment systems

I was extremely pleased with the Certain Services technician and his approach and knowledge. He took the time to explain to me how the water treatment system operated and what needed to be done as regular maintenance. It is never a good experience to learn you are in need of a major component replacement, but the technician fully explained our options and the impact of our non-functioning water softener.We will be making a decision very soon on replacing the water softener and based upon our initial exposure, it will Certain Services who does the work.1/11/2022I have been extremely pleased with the service provided by Certain Services. I believe you provided the services we needed without trying to up-sale us and your service personnel have been professional and personable.I like the way you do business and in the future I will call Certain Services for our water and plumbing needs.09/21/2022I continue to be very pleased with Certain Services. Their field technicians are prompt, professional and courteous. Scheduling was convenient and seemed well managed.

I had water loss due to an issue with water treatment system. I called and got a service person here the same day. Cody arrived on time, he was knowledgeable, polite and informative. As a widow service people seem to see a mark. This did not seem to be the case. Cody made sure I saw and understood what was going on. Thank you

From sales to installation the process was extremely efficient and easy. Lori my sales person was kind, informative and not pushy which is why I decided to purchase from Certain rather then the their competitors.Once we signed the agreement installation was setup for Two days later.Installation was easy and no hassle.My system was setup on the outside for easy access for when they come to maintain the unit and the reverse osmosis did not take up much room under my sink!Highly recommend the team at Certain!

Certain came for an estimate very soon after my first call and gave me an estimate the same day, Joe replaced my faucets, repaired several items, and got my water system all in good shape. The price was great. I have already shared this with my neighbors and I have a few more items that I will be calling Certain for. GREAT COMPANY!!!

We decided to purchase a whole house RO and after getting a referral from a friend and checking out Certain Services we decided to go forward with it. It's only been 2 days, but we love it. The install took about 6 hours and was completed with ease. Very professional plumbers that did the install. Joe explained everything once he was done and it was the best money spent in a long time.

"Hey Bill & Chris! Regarding our service call yesterday, our overall experience was awesome. A personal call for service, with a technician arriving quickly! Nick was very friendly, thorough and professional. Very quick with his diagnostics and repair. And, very reasonably priced! Every experience we’ve had with the Certain folks has been incredible, but each time you seem to go above and beyond the last. And, most importantly… perfect water!! Thank-you!" - Steve Donaldson
