One System – Two Types of Lead 

Soluble/Ionic Lead 
PIONEER™ binders are designed to chemically react with soluble lead to create an ionic bond, kinetically reducing lead from the water. Ionic bonding is a chemical bond that involves the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions, and is the primary interaction occurring in ionic compounds. Ionic bonds form when a nonmetal (binder/ adsorbent) and a metal (lead) exchange electrons, as they do in PIONEER™.

Particulate Lead
The PIONEER™ filter is specifically engineered to physically reduce and filter lead particles from water which is often found as a result of corroded lead pipes

Hellenbrand Water Center Customer Service employee wearing jeans and a light blue shirt.Water is continuously on the move, traveling through soil, city filtration facilities and finally making its way through miles of pipelines into your home.

Hellenbrand Water Center Customer Service employee wearing jeans and a light blue shirt.The largest water issue in south-central Wisconsin is hard water. Which is where having a Hellenbrand water softener will help the water quality in your home.

The aquifer supplying our drinking water in south-central Wisconsin requires little treatment. Madison Water Utility disinfects it with chlorine to reduce the risk of microbial contamination. Small amounts of chlorine kill bacteria and viruses potentially present in groundwater. Chlorine also travels with water, ready to kill microbes that it might encounter. The goal is to maintain a chlorine residual above 0.1 milligrams per liter (mg/L) at all points in the distribution system. Typical concentrations range from 0.2 to 0.4 mg/L.

Hellenbrand Water Center Customer Service employee wearing jeans and a light blue shirt.Madison’s tap water is considered to be “very hard,” because of the minerals such as calcium and magnesium in the rock formations from which we draw water. This water contains 18–20 grains of hardness per gallon. There are no harmful health effects associated with these minerals (in fact, some believe they are beneficial), but measuring them does provide a guideline as to how water use may be affected. For example, hard water does result in more scale buildup and you need to use more soap and detergents.
