Water is the most valuable resource we have and is essential to our health. Considering that statement, we must question the source of our water. There are a million reasons to drink water, but we believe filtering your water is the best way to consume your daily water.
- Money Saving
On average it costs about $0.10 per gallon to filter your own water. Bottled water costs about $9.60 per gallon on average. Filtering your own water saves you $9.50 per gallon of water you consume. Consider trying out a filter, you’d be surprised how much money you’ll have left over.
- Better water
Yes, there are state and federal regulations on municipal tap water, however not all pollutants are removed from the water. There are many additional pollutants that aren’t required to be removed from your water. This is technically legal as long as they don’t have serious health risks, but these pollutants are not something you would want to consume. The best way to know you’re drinking great tasting, and healthy, water is to use a filter and change it regularly.
- Safe Water
Even with regulations on water systems, there is no guarantee you are receiving clean water. Often times water can get contaminated and you may not have time to react. Adding a filter to your water supply diminishes the possibility that you or your family would consume pollutants. If you have well water you are at even more risk of not knowing which pollutants may be found in your water. Sadly, bottled water has the same implications and has even less testing than tap water which leaves room for more chemicals and pollutants to find their way into your water.
- Environmentally Friendly
If you aren’t filtering your water, you are either drinking polluted water or you’re drinking water that comes encased in plastic. We know why pollutants are harmful, but bottled water wastes 3 liters of water just to make one liter (along with 17 million barrels of oil to create bottles). These bottles then end up in landfills and the ocean.
- Reduces Odors
Water from your sink, if not filtered properly, can smell. The fact is, your water should not smell. Water is meant to be pure and free from odors and pollutants. Treat your family and guests to water that doesn’t have a scent or color.
- Properly Digests Food
Pure water assists your body in digestion and helps absorb nutrients from food. Unfiltered water can cause issues with how your body absorbs food and how it removes waste. Your body may take on the absorption of more sugars and carbohydrates when faced with pollutants from your water, which can affect weight gain.
- Reduces risk of Disease
Certain cancers and other diseases can be brought on by consuming water containing chlorine, water parasites and other toxins. Not filtering your water is linked to rectal cancer, colon cancer, bladder cancer, and other gastrointestinal disease.
It’s very important to drink filtered water. Not only will your water taste, smell and look better, it will also help your body to look and feel better. Spending extra for bottled water isn’t always worth the cost financially, or environmentally. Check out the contaminants that are in your water. It can help you find the right filter for your home.
