PFAS Removal From Your Family’s Water

With One Efficient System

As specialists in water treatment systems, we are dedicated to implementing these new standards, ensuring that your home water systems meet and exceed these newly established safety measures. Our services include comprehensive testing, installation of advanced treatment technologies, and ongoing maintenance to keep your water safe and clean.

Stay informed and secure with our expert solutions designed to adapt to the latest regulations and protect your family’s health.

Water all over the country has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS, and our area is not exempt. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

We are continually monitoring communities in our service area with this contaminant. Currently known areas to have PFAS in the water are in the east metro of Mpls/St. Paul in Woodbury, Cottage Grove, Lake Elmo and surrounding communities. 

We don’t believe in fear tactics, however, educating our local community about water quality is a top priority. If you don’t know, you can’t respond. We’ve worked with many local families to improve their water and to provide peace-of-mind, knowing the water they drink and bathe in is free of harmful contaminants.

What are PFAS, PFOA, PFOS and What’s The Difference Between Them?

In a nutshell, PFAS stands for per- and polyflouralkyl substances, which are synthetic chemicals used to make everyday products we all use (your cell phone, your non-stick pans, some food packaging, most things that used to be made at 3M are made of PFAS). PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid, also referred to as C8) and PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate) are simply two types of PFAS, and the difference between the two is the amount of carbon atoms in the chain of polyflouralkyl. GenX is also considered a PFAS contaminant.

These chemicals have been around for almost 80 years, when they started being manufactured in the 1940’s. Unfortunately, a lot of chemical waste ends up being dumped in the water supply we drink from. Imagine 80 years of chemical waste contaminating the water we use every day.

The Water Quality Association (WQA.org) tells us exposure to PFAS can happen when we eat food grown in soil contaminated by PFAS or drink water that has been contaminated and not properly filtered out. It can also be released through the household products we use to clean our homes.

Some potential health risks of PFAS exposure are cancer, a weakened immune system, fertility issues, low birth weight for infants, abnormal levels for cholesterol and thyroid hormones, and inflammation of the liver. There may be potential health risks of PFAS exposure and they are continually under research.

How Can I Know I Have Safe Drinking Water?

If you want to know if the water in your area is affected by PFAS contamination, check out the EWG PFAS map below of known areas affected in the United States click here for more information about PFAS from the Department of Health in Minnesota.

PFOA and PFOS chemicals are bio-permanent, resistant to direct oxidation, and do not break down naturally in the environment or the human body. Tri County Water Conditioning provides a unique system, to successfully remove these chemicals. Our system can be installed in your basement or under your sink for the drinking water in your kitchen.

Our systems have been tested and certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 58 by NSF International, and not only removes sediments and PFAS contaminants, but also eliminates odors and and improves taste – giving you bottled quality (or better) water right at your tap.

I needed a new sump pump as it stopped working. Melissa did a great job of communicating the options and what would work for me.Nick arrived the day of install on time. My basement was was starting to flood from the heavy rain with water seeping through the concrete floor. Nick was calm, put a temporary pump in place and installed the new pump to fully drain the water. From sale to signing off after install, green flags all the way.Thanks Melissa and Nick the new pump is like sump pump 2.0. Based on my experience I will recommend you for all water filter and plumbing needs.

Installation of a replacement water heater went without any issues. The installer had all the equipment and parts to complete the task. Cleanup was exceptional. I would highly recommend Tri-County for all your plumbing needs.

I rented a water softener and filtration system from Tri County for years. They were always responsive and proactive to make sure the systems were working well. Their service people are thorough and honest. Never charged me for things I didn’t need and advising me as to how to do stuff myself so I could avoid unnecessary service calls. When I inquired to buy out my rental agreements, they quoted me a fair price and sent out a service person to ensure the units were in good working order before finalizing the transaction. Great experience all the way through. I’m certainly going to trust them to keep the units I bought working for years into the future.

I was referred by a relative to call Tri County and my expectations were exceeded. Colby was very thorough and patient answering our questions and laying out options without any sales pressure. I appreciated that the installation crew verified the specifics with me also. I would recommend Tri County to others.

Nick does an outstanding job. He has been at our place several times. He is great to work with, went above and beyond with communication and kept the place clean and tidy. I'd highly recommend this company for plumbing, and any other service they offer.

Wow. My only regret is that I didn’t put this softening system in sooner! We live in rural Minnesota with hard water and a ton of calcium build up…… once we got our softener (plus a reverse osmosis system) we have had the softest water, no build up or residue on our dishes, even our hair is extra soft now! It’s the best investment. The company was incredibly nice and easy to work with. Melissa is AMAZING!!

Our water softener experience with Tri County Water Conditioning was great! My husband and I moved into a new construction home and started seeing hard water spots on dishes and showers. Colby did an excellent job going through the options of water softeners and answering all of our questions. Once we decided on one based on his recommendations, we had it installed by Nick. Again, he took the time to show me how it worked, explained the type of salt to use and made sure everything was working properly. Our water is SO much better now! The drinking water tastes so clean and we no longer have hard water spots. Colby even came back 2 weeks after it was installed to check the hardness and everything was working as it should. Thank you so much for a great experience!

We had a water heater, water softener and a reverse osmosis system installed in our home by Tri County Water Conditioning. The installers arrived promptly, were professional and friendly. The installers were very knowledgeable, they walked us thru all the controls of the three systems. A Tri County Water Conditioning representative came out to our home after the installation to retest the water and to make sure we did not have any other questions. They provide fantastic service; I would totally recommend Tri County Water Conditioning!!

Fantastic experience with TriCounty and Colby!! We were really struggling with our rented water softener and our water didn’t taste/smell good. Now our water is fresh and both smells and tastes great. Highly recommend the water experts at TriCounty who test your water and sell you what you actually need. Thank you!
