HELP WATER QUALITY IN YOUR HOME
Everyone should take more of an interest in how to help water quality both in our reservoir system and in our homes. Published reports from studies conducted over the last few decades have proven that there is a real problem with contamination of our water supply.
This contamination extends to our oceans as well, but what we are going to focus on today is the fresh water that we depend on to sustain us.
We are all well aware that there is a problem with the level of contamination in our rivers, lakes, and streams that is having a negative affect on us, and the animals that also depend on these sources.
There are as many as 80,000 individual pharmaceuticals and industrial chemicals floating around out there, and these substances can cause great harm to man and beast alike.
What can we do to help water quality in your home?
The simplest answer to the question of how to help water quality is to purchase and install high quality tap water and showerhead water filters in your home.
I am sure that you can see the benefit of removing as much of the chemical, organic, and biological contamination from the water you consume, but you may not see why filtering your shower water could be of benefit to you. I will get to that in a moment, a tap water purifier should feature an activated granular carbon filter, sub micron filter, and an ion exchange if all hazardous substances currently entering your home are going to be removed or reduced.
A showerhead filter is necessary, because you absorb more toxic and carcinogenic substances through the inhalation of shower vapors than you do through oral consumption. Showerhead filters can help you out significantly, these filters remove 90% of the chlorine, THMs, VOCs, and other hazardous chemicals from the water in your shower.
I have these filters in every working shower in my home, and they don't affect the height of my showerhead or my flow rate. Now you can see why both types of filters would be beneficial to you, and now I am going to explain why installing these two types of filters is how to help water quality outside of your home as well, how to help water quality overall is the reduction of the various levels of the contamination present, right? When contaminated water enters your home and excess water flows down the drain it takes the contaminants right along with it, so that these toxins are simply circulated back through the system.
By filtering out contaminants as the water flows through your tap, the excess water that returns to the reservoir system is cleaner, purifying the water entering your home will make a huge difference for you directly, but it will make a small difference to the environment as well.
If we could get everyone to filter their tap and shower water, then we would all be significantly healthier and our environment would be healthier too.
