Nitrate is a compound that naturally occurs and has many human-made sources. Nitrate is in some lakes, rivers, and groundwater. You cannot taste, smell, or see nitrate in water. Consuming too much nitrate can be harmful—especially for babies.
Excess nitrates can affect how blood carries oxygen and can cause methemoglobinemia (also known as blue baby syndrome). Methemoglobinemia can cause skin to turn a bluish color and can result in serious illness or death. Other symptoms connected to methemoglobinemia include decreased blood pressure, increased heart rate, headaches, stomach cramps, and vomiting. Excess nitrates in water may contribute to an increased risk of cancer.
Nitrate occurs naturally and at safe and healthy levels in some foods (such as spinach and carrots) and comes from natural processes, such as plant decay. Nitrate is in many fertilizers used on yards, golf courses, and crops. Other sources of nitrate include discharge from sewage systems and animal wastes.
Natural processes can cause low levels of nitrate in drinking water—usually less than 3 mg/L. According to mainstream sources the health concern is with levels of nitrate over 10 mg/L. High levels of nitrate in water can be a result of runoff or leakage from fertilized soil, wastewater, landfills, animal feedlots, septic systems, or urban drainage. It can be difficult to pinpoint where the nitrate in drinking water comes from because there are many possibilities. Consequently we encourage the removal of all nitrates from city and well water systems.
Nitrotrapp® for nitrates removal from water is the World’s first High Capacity Adsorber plus De-adsorber to selectively Trapp Nitrates. It has 5 times higher capacity than any other commercially available adsorber in the market. Nitrotrapp® has been specially manufactured to meet Drinking Water standards.
Nitrotrapp® is different from all other nitrate removal systems in the market in several aspects. The custom-designed adsorber removes not only nitrates from drinking water but also provides healthy bicarbonates. “This can’t be achieved simply by any other media, which are based on Ion Exchange or Reverse Osmosis.” Anion exchange for nitrate removal is similar to a water softener, where a relatively large amount of sodium chloride is typically used.
Nitrates are not absorbed through the skin nor do they gas off. Protection is only necessary for drinking water.
The nitrate filter can be regenerated using a brine solution of 30% salt and 70% water. The filter should soak for a few hours in the brine solution followed by a few hours in clean water before reusing.
The Inline Cartridge attaches to the vortexer – If clips are needed, request in checkout notes.
The 10″ Cartridge fits into a 10″ filter housing.
The 20″ Cartridge fits a big blue housing.
