Water Control Corporation’s Pioneer System: An Effective Solution for PFOA and PFOS Removal

In the ever-evolving landscape of water treatment, one of the most pressing concerns that has surfaced in recent years is the prevalence of Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), also known as C8, and Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) in our water supplies. These man-made chemicals are bio-permanent, resistant to direct oxidation, and, unfortunately, do not naturally break down in the environment or the human body. Research indicates that prolonged exposure to these chemicals may lead to serious health conditions, including cancer. As such, addressing this issue has become a crucial task for water treatment companies globally.

The Pioneer system by Water Control Corp. (WCC) presents a solution for the effective removal of PFOA and PFOS. Unlike traditional filtration systems, the Pioneer system has been specifically designed to address these harmful chemicals, safeguarding the health of those consuming the treated water. Pioneer is installed directly where the water line enters your home, business, or restaurant, ensuring that all water passing through the line is treated. This strategic placement allows the system to purify the entire water supply before it reaches any outlets, providing comprehensive protection against PFOA and PFOS.

What sets the Pioneer system apart is its proven efficacy. The system has undergone rigorous testing and has been third-party certified per the stringent NSF/ANSI P473 standard for PFOA/PFOS. This certification attests to the system’s effectiveness in reducing these chemicals to levels that are safe for human consumption. But the Pioneer system’s capabilities aren’t limited to just PFOA and PFOS removal. It has also been certified to the NSF/ANSI 53 standard for the reduction of lead and cyst. Lead is another common and harmful contaminant found in many water supplies, and cysts are tiny organisms that can cause illness if ingested. The Pioneer system’s dual certification demonstrates its comprehensive approach to water purification, ensuring that users are protected against a range of potential waterborne threats.
