Here in Newark, NJ we only can use the water to wash the dishes and flush the toilet. We have lead coming from the pipe lines and politicians will take years to fix it, incredible. We still pay the bill.

They distribute some bottled water but never enough and you need to go all the way to the distribution centers. They also gave us filters and months later they told us that the filter doesn't work with lead. Can you believe that ?

Now democrats asked Trump $100M to fix my water and said it's up to him. They just throw the ball and I got tired of all these BS and got my own solution.

I got a reverse osmosis system. It has a certification, 99% of lead filtered. It has 4 filters and a special faucet with a light that warns you when it's time to change the filters. That's it. Works like a charm and now my water is so good that I can use it for blessings and exorcisms.

I run a reverse osmosis system the size of a big room in my job, so I'm familiar with it but I didn't know there were small versions for home. I know I'll need to spend money replacing filters once in a while but at least this is a real solution.

I spent about 350 bucks, including a diverter/faucet splitter so I didn't have to mess with the pipes under the sink and also the drain line goes to the sink. Not fancy but F# great solution, instead of buying $25 of water a week. That's if I don't use the bottled water to boil pasta. I'M HALF ITALIAN AND I NEED MY PASTA. Wife likes rice a lot too. Also got a BPA free container that I load with my delicious water and take it to work.

Even if they fix the problem, I'll never trust them again. Every house in America should have an R. O. System.

Damn, that's bad, really really bad, 😡

We're having our own issues here too, with excess nitrate and pesticide run-off from agriculture, and fire-fighting foam from years-gone-by entering our streams and groundwater.

We're poisoning this poor planet.

I rely on rain water runoff for my tanks but during a dry spell I require a top up from the 'water carrier'. We live a ways out of town. He is not allowed to use the local river water and must use the town water. (30 klms.) He has to ensure his carrying tank is flushed with chlorine and certified.

We rely on these top ups but can taste the chlorine. Tank/rain water has never done us any harm. No lead problems but I wish I had a filter to enable the taste of town water chlorine is taken out of the tap water here.

Amazing you have such a lead problem.

Kind regards,

Bally

The system I use protects you from chlorine too. You should get one my friend.

So what your saying is if normal utilities are damaged or dangerous, you should handle it yourself???

That the government shouldn’t be responsible for fixing the problems they created?!?!


Lol

Of course they should fix it, but I can't wait 2 or 3 years for that.

So you want the gubment to fix its mistake yet say “Now democrats asked Trump $100M to fix my water and said it's up to him. They just throw the ball and I got tired of all these BS and got my own solution.“. Just so ya know we are under a Republican admin as a whole so maybe blame both sides.

Good for you! We have an RO system as well. Here in AZ the water is so hard and tastes so horrible, no one drinks the water! So home RO systems are pretty common here.

When Kanye was talking about fixing the water in Chicago's inner cities, I wondered/expected he was talking about simple RO systems. Even a small under-the-sink unit would do wonders for those most affected. At least they could have clean water for cooking and drinking.

You know most of these home RO waste something like 4 to 1 per gallon, right? I think they should maybe just remove the source of the lead.

A lot people in New Jersey get cancer from the water here. My sister has a system like yours. We just buy bottled water.

It sucks but nobody in New Jersey trusts the water coming out of the tap. Too many gas stations with leaking tanks. To much corruption and incompetence from outsourcing of government functions. Profit over safety is the rule.

Yes, I made my research before buying. The system I got is advertised as 10 times more efficient in that aspect. Still need to flush the filters by itself, so that makes a little waste water. I can see it going to the sink, it's not too much.

We can't fix the problem other way, the contamination comes all the way from the pipes by the reservoir/water treatment plant. Not the pipes at home.

We hate self-service pumps. We're old school I guess.

Using 4x the water is worth not ingesting lead. Actually, using 100x as much would be too. The source of the lead is the pipes themselves, not just in the house in some cases, but leading to the house. So its not always just $5,000 per home for re-piping.

I had gotten an RO system from Costco for $60 years ago. The 4 filters cost more than the system itself lol.

I suppose he could wait, but since the local politicians are all likely living on systems similar to the one he installed himself, they have no urgency to fix something they are never hurt by.

The worst is when the locals take it upon themselves to fix the problem and the government gets all butt hurt about it and slaps a fine on the locals for it and tears down their fix to force them to wait on the government mandated fix which will be years and thousands or more in the making.

But, please, continue to be a sheep and wait for them to save you. It's what they want.
