CONSUMERS CAN CONTROL LEAD LEVELS IN TAP WATER WITH POLLENEX WATER FILTER

 CONSUMERS CAN CONTROL LEAD LEVELS IN TAP WATER
 WITH POLLENEX WATER FILTER
 CHICAGO, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- In the wake of a recent Environmental Protection Agency study which found unsafe levels of lead in tap water from many of the country's large public water systems, consumers should be advised that they can take control of filtering their home tap water from lead and other impurities.
 Beginning in late November, Pollenex Corp., a market leader in home products, will offer consumers protection from unsafe levels of lead through an innovative, easy-to-use home product.
 According to independent testing laboratories, the Pollenex Faucet Water Filter removes 95 percent of lead from tap water and also filters out chlorine and other impurities through a specially patented carbon block formulation. The Pollenex Faucet Water Filter provides consumers with great-tasting bottled water quality for only pennies per gallon.
 A recent EPA sampling of 660 large public water systems throughout the country found that about 32 million Americans drink unsafe water containing high levels of lead.
 According to the EPA, over time, the consumption of excessive lead in water can elevate blood levels of this toxic metal. This, in turn, can delay physical and mental development in babies and young children. In adults, lead can raise blood pressure and interfere with hearing, and at extremely high levels, it can cause kidney damage and mental retardation.
 "With the Faucet Water Filter, Pollenex offers consumers immediate control over unsafe levels of lead in their water," said Phil Gyori, director of marketing. "It is one of a number of products from Pollenex that help consumers create a healthier and more comfortable environment in the home."
 Easy to install, the Pollenex Faucet Water Filter adjusts to any faucet without the use of tools. The replaceable Water Filter Cartridge has a rated service life of approximately 200 gallons, or three months under normal usage.
 The Pollenex Faucet Water Filter will be sold nationally in drug and mass merchandising outlets at a suggested retail price of $29.99.
 Pollenex Corp. is a leading developer and marketer of quality personal care products. Since the 1950s, the Chicago-based company has been a leader in developing innovative home health improvement products including the first portable air purification system. Pollenex products include a complete line of air and water filtration units, showerheads and hand held massagers.
