Get Informed | What is Bis (2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate / DEHP?

Bis-2-ethylhexyl-phthalate, also known as Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate or DEHP, is one of the man-made chemicals called phthalates or phthalic acid esters that is added to plastics to make them more flexible. This chemical is a plasticizer in polyvinylchloride (PVC), rubber, and styrene, and is commonly used in beverage and food packaging. The chemical is colorless and virtually odorless and is a semi-volatile organic compound. DEHP can be found in a variety of commercial products including medical tubing, garden hoses, material used for beverages and food, vinyl chloride resins, and plumbing materials/piping (PVC). "It is also used in cosmetic and insect repellents, in liquid soaps and detergents, as "carriers" for pesticides, in lacquers, lubricating oils, photographic film, wire casings and during the manufacture of paper." (Source)

How Does Bis (2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate become a problem?

DEHP has been associated with gastrointestinal disorders and has been classified as a probable human carcinogen. From animal studies, the available data indicate that oral exposure is associated with development and reproductive issues and adverse effects on the kidneys and liver. (Source) DEHP can enter the body through skin contact and inhalation, but a more common route for consumers is via consumption. After consumption, the chemical enters the bloodstream via the intestines and lungs. In the body it is then converted to monoethylhexyl phthalic acid (MEHP) and 2-ethylhexanol. MEHP, which has been shown to have a cardio toxic effect, may affect the testes, adversely impacts fetal development, and appears to be transferred from mother to child during breastfeeding, as well as being a possible endocrine disruptor in humans (Source). In animal studies, 2-ethylhexanol was associated with adverse effects on the blood, kidneys, liver, and spleen and skin contact is associated with localized redness (Source).

What are the Health Risks for Bis (2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate?

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has determined that DEHP may reasonably be assumed to be a human carcinogen. The EPA has determined that DEHP is a probable human carcinogen (Source). Ingestion of DEPH may cause irritation of the stomach and diarrhea. In addition, it may act as an endocrine disruptor and may bioaccumulate.

What are the Standards for Bis (2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate?

DEHP is regulated as a primary drinking water standard: the MCL is 0.006 mg/L, and the MCLG is 0 or zero. The DWEL is 0.7 mg/L and if the concentration is 0.3 mg/L or higher then there is a significant risk of the cancer. The Cancer Risk is based on the concentration of a chemical in drinking water corresponding to an excess estimated lifetime cancer risk of 1 in 10,000. The EPA considers there is enough evidence to show that DEHP is carcinogenic in animals but does not have enough information to definitively say the same of humans, concluding that it probably is carcinogenic in humans. California has a drinking water standard of 0.004 mg/L for DEHP.

The EPA estimates that, if an individual were to continuously ingest water containing DEHP at an average of 3 μg/L(0.003 mg/L) over his or her entire lifetime, that person would theoretically have no more than a one-in-a-million increased chance of developing cancer as a direct result of ingesting water containing this chemical." (Source)

Get Tested | Bis (2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate

On an annual basis over 2 million tons of DEHP are produced throughout the world. This chemical does not have a noticeable color or odor. Excluding inhalation and exposure through food packaging, this contamination is typically associated with the use of materials that are not NSF-certified for potable water piping (see NSF International Standard 61), water containers not designed for potable water, and contamination related to the manufacturing of the chemical compound or disposal of the associated waste materials. Note: If you are using PVC piping in your home, we recommend you use piping that is marked as NSF-pw/NSF61. NSF-dwv should only be used for drain piping, waste, and vent applications.

One study states: "DEHP was found in drinking water, at levels ranging from 0.04 to 30 parts per billion (ppb)." (Source)

"Investigators have attributed these concentrations to issues related to the water well construction,  degradation (corrosion or aging) of the well casing, microbial action corrosion (iron bacteria),  sample tubing and abrasion on well casing, and the bailer and rope associated with bailing procedures." (Source)

Level 1 | Observational Self-Testing

Level 1 Testing is done with simple observations that an individual can make with their own senses such as sight, smell, and taste. These observations can be readily apparent or can be observed as they change over time. In addition, accessible related information about the home can also be used to narrow down the cause of your water issues.

Level 1 Self Testing | Screening Observation

What are the options for self-testing or screening, our best answer is awareness. What is the piping in your home? If you are on "city water", what does your Annual Consumer Confidence Report say? Are you located near a landfill or manufacturer that produces or uses this compound? Are you located in an agricultural area or an area with high pesticide / herbicide/ insecticide application?

Other than a water test, the only other way to check your exposure to this chemical would be to have your blood or urine tested.

Observations for Bis (2-Ethylhexyl)phthalate

Observations that may suggest you could have an issue with DEHP:

  • Bis (2-Ethylhexyl)phthalate does not have a detectable odor or taste above the MCL, but some of the other associated organics may have a strong chemical smell and an off-taste.
  • Piping in the home is PVC piping - Not Marked NSF 61.
  • You are in an area where the chemical is manufactured and/or used.
  • You are storing your water in containers that are not NSF 61 approved.

Level 2 | Do-It-Yourself Testing

Level 2 Testing is Do-It-Yourself testing that can be done in your own home using a Testing Kit. After you’ve done Level 1 Testing, Level 2 Testing can confirm if your observations are correct. If your test results reveal the presence of a contaminant that is cause for concern, you can either proceed to determine the best treatment (see below) or continue to Level 3 Testing.

Notes on Level 2 Testing for Bis (2-Ethylhexyl)phthalate

We are not aware of a low-cost screening test to check your water or air for Bis (2-Ethylhexyl)phthalate, but you should check the consumer products you use to see if they contain phthalates (Source) and you may want to use phthalate-free consumer products, such as toys, water bottles, and food wrapping/containers.

Level 3 | Informational Testing

Level 3 Testing is done through an accredited Water Testing Laboratory. With Level 3 Testing, you can order a testing kit that is used to prepare your sample and submit it to the lab. By utilizing a lab, you have the assurance that a certified water expert had analyzed your water sample. If your test results reveal the presence of a contaminant that is cause for concern, you can either proceed to determine the best treatment options (see below) or continue to Level 4 Testing - Certified Testing.

Notes on Level 3 Testing for Bis (2-Ethylhexyl)phthalate

Not all informational water quality tests include Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate and other phthalates. The following are informational water quality tests that include testing for this and similar compounds.  We would recommend the Tap Score Advanced Well Water kit for both well water and city water.

Level 4 | Certified Testing

A Level 4 Certified Test Test uses chain-of-custody with a water professional coming to your home to prepare the water sample and then works with an accredited laboratory in order to certify your test results. This type of testing not only gives you the highest level of assurance in the accuracy of your test results, but can also be used as a document in legal cases. For Baseline Testing, we recommend that you use Certified Testing.

Notes on Level 4 Testing for Bis (2-Ethylhexyl)phthalate

If you need certified testing for Bis (2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, we would advise you test for a broader range of herbicides and pesticides, other phthalates, and bisphenol, plus contaminants that are more likely associated with the source of the contamination. If you do not know the source of the contamination and nature of the contaminant, we strongly recommend conducting informational water testing first to characterize the general water quality and test for a broad range of chemical compounds. If you need help with developing a screening program or finding a certified laboratory, please contact our team.

Get Treatment | Bis (2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate

It is unlikely that there will be significant problems with phthalates in a public water supply system, but it is more likely this problem would be associated with a transient non-community water system or a private system or a water source that is directly downgradient from an industrial user, wastewater treatment plant, landfill, or a drinking water system using PVC piping that is not NSF Standard 61.

Short Term Treatment

For the short-term and assuming the concentrations are relatively low, we recommend making sure to flush the line prior to use and considering the installation of some point-of-use granular-activated-carbon filtration system.

Long Term Treatment

For the long-term, it will be necessary to characterize the water source chemically and biologically. Understand the source or sources, determine if the distribution system is contributing to the problem, and determine if there are any other contaminants that were not initially identified or that may interfere with the use of a granular-activated-carbon filtration system. The best way to develop a long-term solution is to have a comprehensive water quality test and work with a water quality professional.
