Lead & Copper

Carus' phosphate program is the preferred choice for lead and copper conerns. Municipalities are faced with more stringent water quality regulations which may require new or alternative technologies. Carus has developed a complete line of over 75 poly-orthophosphate, zinc orthophosphate and orthophosphate blends to effectively reduce corrosion in potable and non-potable systems and mitigate the release of lead and copper. We are uniquely positioned with the most comprehensive program to assist municipalities in meeting potable water treatment goals. Carus’ sales and technical advisors work with you to evaluate water quality and recommend effective treatment solutions. The solutions include site visits and water quality testing to insure effective treatment recommendations. Ongoing treatment is supported by corrosion coupon test programs and water quality analysis to ensure long-term compliance with the EPA Lead and Copper regulations.
