Florida Officials Investigate Possible Cancer Link to Groundwater Contamination in Brevard County.

Residents and officials of an east-central Florida county are raising the alarm over a potential link between increased cases of cancer in young people and chemicals detected in the groundwater of a nearby Air Force base.

Chemicals, including perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and/or perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which are used to extinguish aircraft fires and known to cause cancer, were detected in groundwater at Florida’s Patrick Air Force Base and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, according to a U.S. Department of Defense report released in March.

The report noted that all 28 groundwater monitoring stations on Patrick Air Force Base tested positive for the chemicals.

The report also noted that no testing was conducted off the base located between Satellite and Cocoa beaches in Brevard County, where a cluster of cancer cases among people in their 20s and 30s has been reported.

The Brevard Times reported that after the March report, the Florida Department of Health launched an investigation into this cancer cluster and any connection between cases of Hodgkin’s lymphoma that were reported in a subdivision in the late 1960s and 1980s.

Earlier this week, officials with the Brevard County Public Schools said they would be testing drinking water at area schools for traces of the chemicals.

The announcement comes on the heels of the city’s announcement that it plans test the groundwater. Nearby Cocoa Beach, which treats sewage from Patrick Air Force Base, announced the same.

In addition to cancer, the chemicals are known to cause birth defects, liver damage, thyroid damage, increased uric acid levels, increased cholesterol and damage to the immune system, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Rave Reviews For the Everpure H-300 Water Filter Replacement Cartridge (EV9270-72 or EV9270-71)!

5.0 out of 5 stars                                                                                                                                                                    Convenient and effective filter

I’ve been using the EverPure H-300 filter for three years now, and I am on my fourth filter. I have it mounted under my kitchen sink, where it dispenses from its own faucet. It’s a large filter, so I had to make sure the cabinet under the sink was set up properly to accommodate it. Once the system was all set up, it was great. The filter itself is easy to change. I just twist the old one off and twist the new one on. It takes me about five minutes, and that’s only because I have to get awkwardly inside my under-sink cabinet.

To give you an idea of how long the filter lasts, my family of five uses the filtered water for drinking and cooking, but not for things like washing dishes. Given that amount of usage, each filter has lasted 10-11 months. It comes with a timer to indicate when the filter should be replaced, but I’ve been ignoring that. I wait until the water pressure starts to get lower, and then I replace it.

As far as what it filters out, this is a good choice compared to Brita or other pitcher type filters. As others have mentioned, it does reduce the amount of lead in the water. If you really want to get everything out of your water, you need to get something like a reverse osmosis system.

5.0 out of 5 Stars                                                                                                                                                                               Much better than the bargain filter I tried                                                                                                                                      By OldViking  December 3, 2016

I have used this model filter for about 10 years. I tried a generic & smaller filter for my last replacement which was about half the price (and size) as the Everpure. The water from the generic filter did not taste as good as the Everpure and it did not deliver the same volume of drinking water as the Everpure. Now that I have switched back, I am much more satisfied with the taste of my drinking water and brewed coffee as well. A good value for the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars                                                                                                                                                                              Works great, tastes great

What type of Everpure Water Filter System should I be using on my Hoshizaki DCM-270BAH?

Dispensing both water and ice from the same unit, the Hoshizaki DCM-270BAH air cooled countertop ice maker and water dispenser has become a very popular model especially within Hospitals in the Healthcare Industry. The unit can produce up to 282 lb. of easy to chew “cubelet” ice per day and holds 8.8 lb. of ice in its storage bin. An integrated CleanCycle feature performs a 15-minute purge every 12 hours in order to rid itself of impurities found within the water, making this unit safe for consumption no matter what time of day it is most frequented. A durable stainless steel exterior will allow for years of high volume use, while the self-contained design also reduces opportunities for cross contamination.

Hoshizaki DCM-270BAH Countertop Ice Maker and Water Dispenser - 8.8 lb. Storage Air Cooled


If you are using your Hoshizaki DCM-270BAH in a Healthcare environment you will certainly want to consider complying with  ASHRAE STANDARD 188. According to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), one of the reasons that ASHRAE Standard 188-2015 Legionellosis: Risk Management for Building Water Systems has been developed is to help prevent the high fatality rate for hospital patients that contract Legionella. This standard is designed to prevent the bacteria from entering and/or reproducing in a hospital water system. The standard places responsibility for water safety on everyone associated with the design, construction, installation, ownership, operation, management, and maintenance of a building’s water system. The new standard recommends the formation of a“Designated Team” who is responsible for developing and implementing a Legionellosis Risk Management Plan (Annex Section A2). ASHRAE Standard 188 currently states “to control Legionella numbers in the distribution system, a disinfectant residual should be maintained.” This means allowing municipal disinfected water to pass into the ice machines. This residual chlorine can range from 1 mg/L to 4 mg/L, depending on the type of disinfectant used (chlorine or chloramines), the dosage (mg/L) and the distance the hospital is from the municipal treatment plant. Everpure currently offers a cost-effective, application-specific filtration system that will allow a hospital to keep its ice machines in compliance with ASHRAE Standard 188, and help provide critical protection from protozoan cysts and scale damage: the 4SI and 7SI Carbonless Water Filters from Pentair Everpure. These unique water filters provide a number of important benefits including;

  • Compliance with ASHRAE Standard 188. Allowing  municipal chlorine and chloramine residual to pass through to the ice machine.
  •  Slime Reduction. Chlorine can help to reduce the growth of slime and bacteria inside the ice machine.
  •  Cyst Reduction. Submicron media reduces cysts such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia that can cause waterborne diseases in humans (reduction occurs by mechanical means*)
  • Scale Protection. Scale inhibitor reduces scale deposits that can cause downtime, maintenance calls and increased service costs. Scale can also result in the clogging of distribution lines, freeze-up on evaporator plates, and cause pumps, solenoids and probes to malfunction or fail.
  • Particulate Reduction. Pentair’s proprietary Fibredyne™ media has superior dirt-holding capabilities versus conventional carbon block filter.
  • Certified to NSF Standards 42 and 53.

For the  Hoshizaki DCM-270BAH, Everpure recommends the Everpure EV9324-61 Insurice Single PF 4SI System with a capacity of 15,000 gallons and a 2.00 gpm flow rate.

A reverse osmosis system is the the number one thing you can do to easily ward off Cancer!

Cancer experts have identified 20 chemicals that we may be exposed to daily that are suspected of causing cancer in our every day lives. When the President’s Cancer Panel released its report stating that environmental chemicals were a “grossly underestimated” cause of cancers in the U.S., the American Cancer Society (ACS) responded by saying the report put too much weight on environmental causes and not enough emphasis on known cancer risks, such as tobacco smoke and obesity. Hoping to bring a little clarity to the field of chemicals that may trigger cancers, the ACS, three government agencies, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer published a list of 20 chemicals so far not officially linked to cancer but still in widespread use that have the strongest evidence against them that they may cause cancer. After reviewing the existing research, 20 chemicals showed enough evidence of causing cancer in laboratory tests and in animals that there was a strong likelihood that they could also cause cancer in humans. Most of the chemicals on their list are industrial chemicals, for instance, carbon black (a substance used to make synthetic rubber) and welding fumes, but others are much more common and can crop up in everything from our sunscreen to our water supply:

  • Atrazine: a widely used pesticide for corn that’s so hazardous it’s banned in Switzerland, the home country of the company that manufactures it.
  • Chloroform: a water-disinfection by-product that can wind up in your tap water.
  • Diesel engine exhaust.
  • Diethylheyxl ptthalate (DEHP): a chemical used to keep vinyl plastics, like your shower curtain, soft and pliable
  • Formaldehyde: already a known human carcinogen that causes pharynx and nasal cancers, this chemical (used in hundreds of building products) was added to the list because of suspicions that it might cause leukemia.
  • Lead and lead compounds.
  • Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs): banned since the 1980s, these industrial flame retardants still linger in our food supply.
  • Styrene: used to make polystyrene foam coffee cups and takeout containers.
  • Perchloroethylene: the commonly used dry-cleaning solvent.
  • Titanium dioxide: used as a colorant in paints but also as an ingredient in sunscreens; the researchers were particularly concerned about nanoparticles of titanium dioxide, which are already suspected of causing brain damage.

Reverse osmosis drinking water systems are the number one recommendation for removing a wide variety of these contaminants including atrazine, chloroform, Lead, Fluoride and other industrial chemicals that the ACS included on its list, such as trichloroethylene (a solvent used in auto body shops and mechanics’ garages) and formaldehyde. Filter Pure Systems recommends and stocks several different brands of reverse osmosis systems including Hydrotech’s latest RO system featuring quick-change cartridges, which can be customized for changing water conditions. These proprietary cartridges also simplify the regular replacement as required – typically on an annual basis. The QCRO delivers bottle water quality without the hassle or cost.
