Clean drinking water is a basic necessity of life. This alone speaks volumes about why filtered water is so important. According to the latest NSF consumer survey, “82% of consumers report that they are concerned about the negative effects emerging contaminants may have on their health although at trace levels they are not a public health issue. Pesticides and herbicides in drinking water are the largest concern.”
Filtration removes majority of water contaminants while preserving the healthy minerals which hydrates your body and relieves your thirst. While some communities have better tap water than others, it still pays to have that extra assurance that the water you’re drinking is safe and healthy.
After all, drinking impure, contaminated water is a leading cause of epidemic diseases and other life-threatening illnesses in developing countries. Lead that is usually found in unfiltered water also has adverse health effects, including delays in physical and mental development in children, as well as kidney problems and high blood pressure in adults.
Filtered drinking water is essentially improved water. Not only does filtration protect you from illnesses and boost water’s health benefits, it also allows you to enjoy great-tasting water as opposed to water that tastes a little funny and smells rather funky when coming straight from the tap.
But not all kinds of filtered water will give you great-tasting water. Only Ultrafiltration (UF) and Ultraviolet (UV) system will preserve healthy minerals in your water. This is why HomePure filtered water tastes better than distilled water or Reverse Osmosis water. It contains crucial minerals that your body craves for and make you less thirsty like calcium, potassium and magnesium.
Furthermore, apart from contaminants in the city pipes and water delivery system, chlorine is one of major concerns if you drink tap water or use tap water to prepare your food and cooking. Chlorine can react with naturally occurring materials in the water to form by-products like trihalomethanes and holoacetic acids, which may pose health risks at high levels. However, certified home treatment options such as whole house/point-of-entry (POE) filters and point-of-use filters can remove chlorine (NSF consumer fact sheet, n.d.).
Deciding to filter your water gives you more control of what you put in your body on a daily basis. It gives you a clearer insight of what your water contains before you drink it or use it when cooking. Furthermore, it is a more convenient and less expensive means to enjoy clean and safe drinking water than purchasing disposable bottled water—which, in case you don’t know yet, causes more damage to the body and the environment than it does any good.
