Last Monday, the city of Newark began distributing bottled water after an EPA-conducted test that reported the filters distributed last fall were ineffective against lead. To put it in the bigger picture, the city provides for 280,000 through pipes around the city. Around 15,000 homes get lead service pipelines as a supply for water. After this action by the authorities, it is clear that the supply can have lead and there is no safety standard for lead.
The exposure can be a big risk to your health and the supply of bottles may not always be accessible all the time. Here are some effective reverse osmosis strategies that can help you ensure a safe constant supply of drinking water at your home.
Emergency Solution For Temporary Settings
This strategy can be applied if the supply at your home is compromised and one of the 15,000 homes susceptible to lead contamination. A temporary solution, this is effective nevertheless.
Emergency Portable Watermakers are reverse osmosis operated systems that give the same quality results for urgent requirements. Usually used for camping, military, hitchhiking, etc, this machine has proven to provide safe water from practically any source.
- The system can produce 150 gallons per day.
- It is compact and easy to carry.

This machine can convert bad water from the sea, ground, your supply, brackish sources, lakes, and rivers to provide the same level of quality for a healthy body. Even after the temporary use, the watermaker is a good investment in the long run as it requires little maintenance and can be of help in future emergencies. You can get one here.
Long-Term Application Strategy
This strategy is helpful in the long term. It avoids future problems like the one right now as your home will be safeguarded from inside. This involved purchasing an under-sink RO Filter that purifies every contaminant in your supply for years. Getting a 3 or 4 or even 5 stage RO system would mean constant purification without any manual interference. For residents in Newark and especially homes that are more vulnerable, can get a 5-stage purifier as it comes with a remineralization filter that ensures unwanted contaminants are eliminated and important minerals remain. This particular model provides 45-50 gallons per day with minimum energy consumption.
Furthermore, if you are not comfortable with any supply in your house, we recommend the line of whole house RO systems.
