Common Water Problems > Nitrate


Nitrate nitrogen is found in many water supplies and is especially harmful to infants and elderly adults. High nitrate concentration in water is often indicative of pollution associated with septic system or agricultural practices.

Nitrate nitrogen enters the water supply by seeping through soil containing nitrate-bearing minerals, fertilizers, plant debris, or the products of bacteria decomposition.
Nitrate is effectively removed by reverse osmosis, distillation or deionization.
