In an encouraging move towards safer drinking water, Delaware schools are exploring the potential of Pure Spout's innovative lead filtration systems. Following the alarming discovery of elevated lead levels in 47 schools last year, state officials have adopted a proactive "filter first" approach to tackle this issue head-on.

Addressing Lead Contamination with Effective Solutions

Delaware's commitment to resolving lead contamination issues is commendable. With $3.8 million allocated in the fiscal year 2024 budget for such initiatives, the Department of Education is evaluating various tools, including Pure Spout’s flagship on-fountain lead filter system. This innovative device is designed to replace existing spouts on water fountains, providing an efficient and cost-effective solution to reduce lead levels at the point of use.

Innovative Design and Easy Maintenance

What sets Pure Spout apart is its patented design and effectiveness. Co-developed by industry experts Matthew Griffith and Mark Campbell, the on-fountain filter system is certified by IAPMO R&T and meets NSF Standard 53 for lead reduction. The filter’s initial installation is straightforward, requiring less than an hour and causing minimal disruption—a crucial feature for busy school environments. And after that initial install, the replaceable filter cartridge can be replaced in under 30 seconds!

At a price point of $195 per unit and $45 for each filter change, Pure Spout provides a budget-friendly alternative to traditional solutions, which can range from $1,000 to $2,000 for new fountains. Maintenance is also simple, involving a quick filter change every six months, ensuring continuous protection against lead contamination.

Looking Forward

Pure Spout’s commitment to improving water safety doesn’t stop at Delaware. With a national roll-out in 2024, the company aims to extend its impact nationwide. As the product gains traction, it promises to be a driving force in the remediation of elevated lead levels in schools’ drinking water.
