ABOUT LAKOTA SCIENTIFIC

I was flying in a military aircraft over California admiring the lush growing fields below. As we approached for landing, the pilot began the common practice of lightening the aircraft in which fuel is dumped from the aircraft into the environment.

Thousands of pounds of jet fuel, which contains a sinister cocktail of toxins and carcinogens, were released into the environment.

This gave me tremendous pause. This was California, the food basket of America. And this was common practice. I couldn’t stop thinking about the potential contamination of the food and water. 

 

The search for a good water filter for my family ended in disappointment as the average filter on the market did little more than remove chlorine. That’s when Lakota Scientific Home Water Filters was born. After almost 3 decades in the business, we see the need growing as more contaminants are found lurking in the water we play in, bathe in and drink. 

 

Today, Lakota Scientific Home Water Filtration is still a family-owned business, and we pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and deep technical expertise. We offer ready-to-go solutions, or we can customize a filter for your specific needs.
