Water is a need for every human being. It makes up two-thirds of who we are and influences all of our bodily systems. It is an essential need for us all. Some time ago, the United Nations recognized clean water as a basic human right. It is more than just something we need, it is something we are endowed with the right to have.
Every person requires somewhere between 20 to 50 liters of safe, clean water every day for things like drinking, cooking, and cleaning. Many places in America have water that can be used in the home to take care of the needs of most people. This water comes from wells and city supplies, depending on where you are. The problem is that this well and tap water contains moderate to very heavy levels of contamination from environmental and industrial pollution. Every source of water has some degree of contamination, to be sure.
The contaminants in water can vary to a great degree from contaminants that occur naturally to man-made chemicals that seep into the water supply. By and large, the levels of these contaminants in the water are not high enough to raise health concerns immediately but are more likely to cause chronic health problems down the road.
The concern is repeated exposure to these contaminants in small amounts over a long period of time. A whole house filtration system is the answer to the concerns of dangerous water contaminants. Drinking water can be made clear with water treatment filters that specialize in chlorine removal and the removal of other dangerous particles such as lead.
A whole house filtration system can make your water safe for consumption but must be proven to do the job. Don’t simply trust the claims that filtration systems found in stores. Roughly 80% of those systems have not been thoroughly tested to be sure that they filter lead. This is highly important because lead can be a very dangerous chemical in your water supply. You will need a whole house filtration system that is proven to eliminate lead from your water source.
Water is so important to our lives that the lack of it can be readily seen in people. Dehydration in even the most basic forms can lead to an impairment of some brain functions. Chronic dehydration is now known as the “hidden epidemic” and affects 75% of the American population.
If you have a whole house filtration system, you can be sure that your water is healthy and clean and will be safe for whatever water needs you might have. Your hard water will be a thing of the past and your filtered water will be pure and thirst quenching.
