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 (804) 312-5596!

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 number 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 1940s. 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.

Ryan and his team did the rough-in for my new primary bath and I'm... thrilled. Ryan showed up when he said he would, and sent the quote as promised. His team was respectful of my house. Ryan answered my questions in detail and kept me informed throughout the work.read more

Needed a new hot water tank. Contacted my usual plumber who came out... relatively quickly, but then quoted me a ridiculous price and took a long time to schedule replacement. Called Dominion Water and Well because I was told I needed a water softener (have well water). Ryan came out right away. We started talking about the water heater and it dawned on me that I should use one company to take care of the issues at one time. The price he quoted was fair and he did the job himself. Ryan is the first plumber I truly trust - professional, humble, fair. Talked to him about placing a water filter for the kitchen sink. He took care of it and I am so happy with the outcome. Live in Northern Virginia. Ryan wants more work in the area.He is the person I will call with any plumbing or well needs in the future.read more

Fantastic service! They tested my well and didn't try and sell me... anything more than I needed. In the end, I got a UV light and a Reverse Osmosis filter set. They said my water was within good ranges for softness and Ph, so they didn't recommend anything further. My bacteria problems are solved and I have super pure water for drinking and ice as they hooked up my refrigerator to the Reverse Osmosis setup. Price was more than reasonable and they had it all done in just a couple of hours.read more
