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?

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.

Just had a whole house RO system put in and could not be more pleased. Took care of the smell and salt intrusion and replaced it with fresh good tasting water right out of the tap. Took a shower the next day and only had to lather up the wash cloth once as opposed to the 2 and three time that I previously had to. Did laundry and noticed I didn’t have to add vinegar to get rid of the funky smell in my laundry. Instillation was very professional, timely and informative. Joe explained the whole system and I took a video so we could remember everything if we had questions later. So thankful we choose Certain Services and look forward to our continued business relationship.

We are very pleased with the service. When making our initial appointment, Kellie was very polite and very helpful! Cody arrived early to our appointment and was extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. He educated us on our system, how to clean the water tank, etc. He took the time to explain everything and we will definitely use Certain Services in the future and will highly recommend them.

I cannot say enough about the entire team from Certain Services. Moving into a new home only to find out you have salt water coming from your pipes can be an extremely frustrating realization. But everyone at certain services, from the always friendly receptionists, to the knowledgeable techs who are ready to teach you about every option, made the process much less painful. We shopped around for our whole home reverse osmosis system, but the service and care taken by the entire team is second to none. If you have any water troubles I couldn’t recommend them more. We finally have the freshest water coming into our home, and we cannot thank everyone at Certain Services enough for helping us along the way.

This is our go-to water treatment company. Most recently, we had the dreaded sulfur smell in our water and I found that our sulfur block was leaking. Two technicians were able to come that same afternoon, and they had us back on track quickly by replacing a piece that had gotten clogged and sanitizing the whole system. The water is back to smelling like nothing ever happened, and the bill was fair for a couple hours of work. We will be using them again if and when we need service on our equipment.

I have used Certain Services twice and l am totally pleased. Nick came this time to help since my water system wouldn't backflush. Nick came and said l needed a new system card. He installed the card and everything worked perfect. He explained the problem and what he did to correct it. I am very happy with Certain Services and will call them again when I have water problems. Thank you .

Class act company! So glad that we took the time to investigate a few companies and RO Systems. That being said Certain is definitely the #1 choice. From the 1st day when calling the office (Kellie) answered the phone set an appointment and kept the appointment showed up on time!Bill (Owner) came out tested our water and sat down and explained the findings and what was the only choice obviously with such high TDS also broke everything down so WE could understand exactly what we were getting. (Other companies just throw prices at you) He showed us the products and what it would look like outside also. (NO PRESSURE) You have a choice to maintain the system on your own or sign up for the monthly warranty & service program. Which for us was a no brainer to have them do it & very reasonable monthly price. (For what we are saving to eliminate bottle water alone covers the cost)After deciding YES we are going with this system, it was a little after 5pm (Kellie) answered again put us on the schedule right away told us guys will be here at 8:30am and that they were! Ready to work! Had the entire system up and making water by 5:30pm DONE! Gave me instructions on flushing the inside the next day and said 3 days you will have perfect water. Well yes we have perfect water AT EVERY FAUCET!!!I was outside saw a small leak coming from a pipe called office AGAIN (Kellie) answered my call said no problem ! Today showed up to fix it!!So if you are looking for PERFECT WATER definitely give CERTAIN SERVICES A CALL you will not be disappointed!

We have used Certain Services since moving to North Port 5 1/2 years ago. The company is very reliable and technician are courteous and knowledgeable. We recently found ourselves without water due to pressure valve. They were very prompt responding and had us up and running. I would highly recommend Certain Services for all of your water and pluming needs.

I have had several companies come out to service my well over the years and every one has recommended expensive repairs/upgrades that were unnecessary. The technician from Certain services was willing to spend time to educate me on how to maintain the equipment I have. Some of it is very old but he did not try to push expensive replacement, he was very honest and did an amazing job! I will be using and recommending Certain for all my well and plumbing needs!

Joe was the hero of the day for me. He was pleasant, professional, helpful, friendly, and he got everything done very quickly. I asked him for his card in case I have an issue somewhere down the road. I would recommend your service and say a 5 star rating.

Very professional company and their people are amazing. I would recommend them to anyone who needs service for their water system. In this extreme heat Cody the tech did not try to take shortcuts, he stood out there completing everything that needed to be done. Kelly who answered the phone explained in detail what was needed to be done and answered all my questions extremely professionally. Great Company.

Certain did a good, and fast job installing our new water softener. Hopefully it will continue working for years to come. I would give it 5 stars, but I’ve only had it a few days. So far so good.
