Frequent Questions

How can perchlorate be removed if it gets in my drinking water?

There are home treatment units that are certified to remove perchlorate from drinking water. EPA neither endorses nor recommends specific home water treatment units. NSF International (800-673-8010) can help you determine which home filtration systems are able to filter perchlorate. Consumers who choose to purchase a home water treatment unit should carefully read its product information to understand what they are buying, whether it is a better taste or a certain method of treatment. Be certain to follow the manufacturer's instructions for operation and maintenance, especially changing the filter on a regular basis.
