It’s frightening enough when lead is discovered in a single school’s drinking water. Lead is one of the most dangerous of the many contaminants affecting drinking water in U.S. schools, homes and businesses. This is especially true for children with developing bodies and brains. —
What’s even scarier is when it’s discovered that most schools in a particular district are found to have lead in their drinking water. Such is the case with the schools in Bergen County, N.J., according to a recent advocacy group’s analysis of results from state-required tests, as reported recently by the Bergen County News.
The group, known as Environment New Jersey, claims that the drinking water in Bergen County schools is more likely than not to contain lead. Its analysis showed that 55 percent of the schools’ water outlets had some level of lead.
“We keep hearing stories in the news about one water contamination after another in this country,” said Allen Baler, Partner at 4Patriots LLC, a Nashville, Tenn.-based company that provides a variety of products that help people become more self-reliant and independent.
“It’s no wonder that fewer than 50 percent of the U.S. population are confident in their tap water, according to an Associated Press poll,” Baler said. “Lead is obviously one of the most dangerous of the contaminants, but there are many others that can harm us as well. At 4Patriots, we give people a way to protect themselves from many of these contaminants, including lead.”
Baler’s company offers the Alexapure Pro tabletop water purifier, which is capable of transforming contaminated water from virtually any source into clean, safe, delicious water.
An advanced engineered, two-stage filter removes up to 99.99 percent of contaminants, including heavy metals such as lead, as well as arsenic, pharmaceuticals – even E. coli and polio. Drinking contaminated water, regardless of the source, can cause serious illness and even death.
With a 2.3 gallon-per-hour flow rate, the Alexapure Pro purifies water about three times faster than many of its competitors. Users will be able to access up to 5,000 gallons of fresh, clean water from it before the filter needs to be replaced. Priced at $197, that comes to approximately 4 cents per gallon. Bottled water, usually originating from unknown sources, costs considerably more.
No gas, electricity or water pressure is needed to operate the Alexapure Pro. It removes contaminants using only gravity, producing the most essential item to have now and during an emergency: clean, crystal-clear water.
“People would be wise to keep themselves and their families safe by acquiring a water purification system that will remove those contaminants from their tap water,” Baler said.
In addition to complimentary shipping, those who purchase the Alexapure Pro water filtration system also receive a credit card-sized steel survival tool featuring 11 different functions, as well as a hardcopy book, “The Water Survival Guide.”
They are also able to acquire the Alexapure Go Bottle (priced at $47), which features the same advanced engineering of the Alexapure Pro and which can filter 300 gallons of water, can be stored in a backpack or bug-out bag, and is ideal for camping, hiking, biking or any other outdoor activities.
Also available from Water4Patriots is the Survival Spring ($24.95), a nine-inch long, two-ounce straw made of BPA-free, food-grade materials that can filter up to 300 gallons of water and can easily be carried anywhere.
Water4Patriots provides products that help people eliminate contaminants from their drinking water, including the Alexapure Pro tabletop water purifier, the Alexapure Pro Go Bottle and the Survival Spring straw. Each product purifies contaminated water from virtually any source into clean, safe, delicious water.
