Here's Why You Need a Good Water Filter
Water is very important, it is a liquid that sustains life, you can only survive for a very short time without it. The water that comes directly from the faucet, the tap water, may already be undermining your health without you noticing it.
Although the water is tested, and the Environmental Protection Agency stated that more than ninety percent of the water supply in the United States is actually safe to drink, they are not entirely free from impurities like chlorine, fluoride, pesticides and a lot more.
The water that is flowing from the tap is not actually something that you would think as entirely clean. Before it reached the faucet in your home, it has already travelled through miles and miles of pipeline and it has picked lots of contaminants along the way. This is why you need to consider using a water filtration system to help you improve the water quality and for health purposes.
Here are some of the reasons why you need to have a water filter:
To Remove Chlorine
A lot of cities all over the world make use of chlorine to clean their water supply, although this process is actually very important to make sure that we have a clean drinking water that is free from microorganisms that could badly affect our health, chlorine is basically bleach and it also carries a lot of health risks with it, it even puts you at a higher risk of developing bladder and rectal cancer.
Most of the water utility companies choose to use chlorine as a medium of cleaning tap water because it's easy to use, an inexpensive choice and it is actually very effective in killing off bacteria that is found in the water. Chlorine can also be very effective in eliminating viruses in the water.
Although chlorine is actually a good and an effective disinfectant, it can make your drinking water smell and taste not good, your water could be very unpleasant. The chlorine could also react with other metals that can be found in the water, therefore, forming a hazardous compound.
To Remove Fluoride
We only need a small amount of the mineral fluoride. Excessive amount of it can be toxic especially to children below 8 years old.
Fluoride is added to most toothpastes, soil fertilizers and even water systems that had caused an alarm worldwide. Anything in excess is not beneficial. This act makes users prone to over consumption of the mineral that can cause serious health damage.
Irrefutable evidence shows that high fluoride consumption is directly associated to gastrointestinal problems, low fertility, thyroid and endocrine related ailments and even cancer.
To Remove Pathogens
This is another very important reason why you need to filter your drinking water. You need to keep parasites and bacteria out of your drinking water because they could be a grave threat to you and your family’s health.
Giardia intestinalis is a microscopic parasite, this organism can survive and thrive in an environment for a long time, it could take up to several months. This parasite causes Giardiasis which is a kind of an illness which causes diarrhea that could last for six weeks. The microscopic parasite that causes that kind of illness, along with other of its kinds, can be ingested from the water that was contaminated with human or animal feces.
Another parasite that could cause the same symptoms that was mentioned above is called the Cryptosporidium, and what even made this parasite dangerous is because it is resistant to chlorine, so it really needs to be filtered out using a mechanical filter. A lot of pathogens could be omitted from your water by passing it through an ultra, a micro or a nano filter.
To Remove Lead from the Water
It is very important that lead is removed from the water that you drink because it could be toxic when ingested. Lead could commonly get into your drinking water by seeping into your water supply when it passes through the old plumbing pipelines or the solder that is used for them to join together.
Lead can be removed from the water when you let the water pass through a filter that uses a reverse osmosis mechanism, a carbon filter or distillation that was specifically designed to remove the metal out of your drinking water.
If your major source of water is a well, health authorities recommend that you will need to have the water tested for at least once a year for any lead of other kinds of contaminants.
Those are just a few of the most important reasons why using a water filter in your home is a good idea. And not all water filters can filter all those contaminants like Berkey Water Filter can do. Berkey Filters are classified as a Purifier, which performs a lot higher purification than a filter.
