Do Fridge Filters Remove Nitrates?

I have heard many people say, ” I filter my water in my fridge so I am safe!”  People that believe this should be cautious.  Standard fridge filters are unable to remove nitrates which have become a major concern in Des Moines, IA.  Crystal Clear can help in either residential or office applications.  We can install a reverse osmosis system that can remove 80% of the nitrates from your tap water or if the recent studies have you to the point that you want ZERO nitrates, you can choose to have Crystal Clear 5 Gallon bottles delivered to you.


Last week, the Des Moines Register published an article about nitrate levels spiking with the droughts, farming & torrential rains all combined.   University of Iowa scientists published the Environmental Health Perspectives prenatal nitrate study of nitrates and birth defects.   The study shows the direct association of nitrate consumption with birth defects, they concluded, “Higher water nitrate intake was associated with several birth defects in offspring…”  One of the most shocking findings is that even nitrate consumption under the EPA approved level of 10 ppm was associated with certain birth defects.

Let Crystal Clear Water provide you with peace of mind and the best water available for YOUR family.
