Two out of every three Americans has Hexavalent Chromium in their water. Let’s learn more.
Chromium-6 is an odorless, tasteless chemical. Among other things, it’s used in the logging industry to bind wood preservatives together, and as tanning agent in leather production.
It first became a household name in the Oscar-winning film Erin Brockovich. A true story about a small California town’s struggle with chromium-poisoned water.
Unfortunately, problems with Chromium-6 are widespread. As the chemical has now been found in the tap water of every state, affecting more than 218 million people.
Chromium-6 is a known carcinogen, linked to cancer, reproductive issues, asthma attacks, and other severe health effects.
The EPA has set the maximum contaminant level of chromium in tap water at 100 parts per billion. That’s equal to one-cup of chromium in an Olympic-sized swimming pool.
It may not seem like a lot, but in 2010 scientists from the California government concluded that even a small amount of chromium-6 could cause cancer.
If you know Chromium-6 is in your tap water, our in-home reverse osmosis system can reduce chromium-6 by up to 96%.
And if you’re not sure, Culligan is also trained and equipped to collect a water test for Chromium-6 and send it to our EPA certified lab for analysis.
