Aquasana water filtration systems featured in historic Detroit home project 

Austin, Texas –Aquasana, the award-winning maker of water filtration systems for at home and on the go, will appear on the popular national home improvement show, “This Old House,” May 4 on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). Check local listings: www.thisoldhouse.com/tvschedule

In the episode #3622 titled, “Fixing the Fascia,” the cast, crew and local community tackle the renovation of a single-family brick home in historic downtown Detroit, Mich., featuring the installation of an Aquasana whole house filtration system and under sink system in the kitchen to improve the overall health of the family by giving them access to clean and healthy water from every faucet.  

Drinking water quality and safety has become top of mind for many since the water crisis in Flint, Mich., fell under a national spotlight. The 10-part PBS series includes a visit to nearby Flint to emphasize the importance of safe drinking water and the fact that it’s not always a given.  

Homeowners Frank and Tamiko Polk installed the Aquasana EQ-600 Whole Home Filtration System with 6-year Descaler and UV Light to provide filtered water from every tap and shower, ward against viruses and bacteria and improve indoor air quality. Additionally, the AQ-5300 under sink filter was installed in the kitchen to ensure removal of the highest number of contaminants from the Polks’ drinking water for the lowest price per gallon and ease of use. 

“One of our main charges at Aquasana is to help educate families on the importance of knowing exactly what’s in your drinking water, so we were thrilled to a part of the ‘This Old House’ Detroit project,” said Todd Bartee, CEO at Aquasana. “As we’ve witnessed from the devastation in Flint and other cities across the country, testing the water in your own home and using a high-quality NSF-certified filter is the best way to guarantee the water coming out of your tap is safe and healthy.”  

Aquasana offers systems that remove the highest number of contaminants for the lowest price per gallon on the market, and its best-in-class water filters provide easy access to clean and healthy water. The company’s drinking water systems are NSF-certified to remove over 99 percent of lead as well as 67 other contaminants—10 times the number of contaminants removed by the leading pitcher brand— including asbestos, pharmaceuticals, chloramines, herbicides, pesticides, industrial solvents, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and mercury. Aquasana recently became the first and only water filter maker to receive NSF certification for the removal of PFOA and PFOS, a component in non-stick cookware.
