The human body is made of 60% water, and this is a clear indication of the importance of clean water. What type of water you drink is THE most important component to your health! Shouldn’t you ensure that the water in your home is always safe, sustainable and free from unpleasant taste and odor? With the quality of our drinking water increasingly coming under question, we have 5 reasons you should be purifying your water.
- Add an Extra Layer of Security
Our world is rapidly changing and with these changes the cleanness of our water has been deteriorating. There are an increasing number of incidents where contaminants from pollution, lead from outdated or faulty water pipes or residue from the use of pesticides have found their way into the tap water and into your home.
Unsafe drinking water is not just a third world issue; all sources of drinking water contain some level of contamination. A good water filtration system provides you and your family with an extra layer of security and clean water. Reverse osmosis will effectively remove the harmful metals, minerals, and also microorganisms contributing to poor water quality.
- Remove Unwanted Contaminants
City/Municipal water comes from many sources such as lakes, wells, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, rivers and groundwater. Water from these sources can be highly contaminated with microorganisms and must be properly treated before it is ready for public consumption. While the water that comes into your house is considered “safe” to drink, you may have your own preference for what high level of contaminants you feel comfortable having your drinking water contain. We offer filters for whole-house applications and point of use (refrigerator filters, Reverse Osmosis). The correct filter to fix the problem in your water.
- Protect Your Health
Drinking water that contains certain contaminants and bacteria can lead to serious health issues and diseases including diarrhea, reproductive problems, and neurological disorders. Infants, young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and immunocompromised persons may be especially at risk for becoming ill after drinking contaminated water. For example, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. If you live in an area where such diseases are a risk, the most effective way to protect yourself is by using a reverse osmosis water purification system.
- Cut Back on Plastic to Protect the Environment
In 2020, per capita consumption of bottled water amounted to roughly 45.2 gallons in the United States. Bottled water includes drinking water sold in plastic as well as glass bottles.
The use of RO systems helps the environment by keeping bottled water usage to a minimum, as well as keeping plastic out of landfills. Reverse osmosis filtration provides healthier water at a fraction of the cost of wasteful bottled water and significantly reduces the impact on our environment.
- Improve the Taste and Odor of Your Tap Water
Are you dealing with smelly water in your home? Then you know what a nuisance and embarrassment it can be! There are many things that can give drinking water a bad odor or taste. It could be chemicals used to treat your drinking water, environmental contaminants or even concentrations of metal that have been cast off in plumbing pipes. When it comes to odor the most irritating is that of hydrogen sulphide. It smells like rotten eggs. As these contaminants may be in our water, a water purification can not only help remove harmful containment but also improve the taste, smell and visual appearance of your drinking water.
