Spout is the most accurate in-home test for lead in drinking water. Spout detects lead in water at concentrations at or below 1 part per billion.
What does that mean?
There is a bit of confusion surrounding what level of lead in water is safe; The US Environmental Protection Agency has set a standard for safe drinking water at concentrations of lead below 15 parts per billion.
The Food and Drug Administration has established a limit of 5 parts per billion for lead concentration in bottled water.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has stated unequivocally that there is NO safe level of lead in drinking water.
Spout enables you to decide what safe levels are for YOU and your family.
