Make your Water Safe for Drinking with Simple Water Purification

All water coming from the reservoirs to your home must meet strict government standards. This would suggest that the water is safe for you to drink at home.

However, there are several reasons why you may want to consider if this is really the case:

The Journey
The water travels through miles of pipework between the treatment center and your home. It’s impossible for these pipes to be checked regularly or for minuscule leaks to be detected.
That means the water can pick up debris from inside the pipes and bacteria can even get in the water through these tiny leaks. In effect, this can destroy the treatment process as the water is re-infected before reaching your faucet.

Chemicals Added
Chlorine and fluoride are added to your water. Chlorine is very effective at killing bacteria. However, it is also an effective irritant to humans. It can cause respiratory issues, allergies, and even itchy skin if you bathe or shower in it regularly.

Fluoride, on the other hand, is added to improve dental health. Studies show that it improves tooth strength and reduces incidents of tooth decay. However, other studies show that it may be linked with an increased risk of cancer.
You’ll have to consider whether this is really a chemical you want to be consuming or not.

Standards Set
It’s also important to consider who set the government standards and whether they are the best possible standards to ensure safe drinking water.

Making Your Water Safe

The best way to deal with the issue, without resorting to buying a lot of bottled water, is to use a reverse osmosis filter.
You may have already tried some of the other filters on the market but you need to be aware that many of them are not capable of removing chemicals from the water, they concentrate on bacteria and debris.

A reverse osmosis filter is designed to force the water through a semipermeable membrane. The process is driven by a chemical difference in solvents. The water passes through these and the natural scientific reaction s for the chemicals to migrate out of the water and into the solvents. These are then flushed in a solution to remove the chemicals allowing the solvents to complete the process again and again.

The system is completely natural and removes all chemicals and heavy metals from your water, making it a reliable and simple method of making your water safe for human consumption.
If you’re not sure how effective this really is then have your water tested before you fit the filter and again after. You’ll be surprised at the differences in its quality.

It should be noted that this process is likely to change the taste of your water as the chemicals are removed. You should notice that it tastes much better. The good news is that fitting a reverse osmosis filter into your current water system is a very easy job. Once it’s in place it will last for years and easily offset the cost of purchasing bottled water every week.
