Introduction: This research focuses on the study of pollution in the consumed water in the residues models of water filters of RO system in Iraqi households. These filters are imported from the origin of the US and Taiwan, available and common in the Iraqi markets. This study is new and has not been addressed in any study to this day. The rates of environmental pollution in the samples of the residues of the water filters by measuring the emission rates of radioactivity of the alpha particles and the concentration of heavy metals were measured. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted using the technique of measuring the rate of alpha particles emission by the British nuclear detector (CR39). The heavy elements were measured using an atomic absorption spectrometer. Results: The highest value of cadmium was found in Ghadeer and the lowest cadmium value in Alswag district. The highest value of lead was found in Ghadeer and lowest in Aljameha. The emission rates of alpha particles were found to be the lowest in the sediments of Ghadeer district, and the highest values were found in Khan Almkhdhar. Conclusions: The average concentration of dissolved Cd and Pb were higher than the safe limits for each Iraqi specification and the world standards limits.
