Ridding your water of toxins and chemicals through a water filtration and purification system improves the taste, feel, and odor of your water, while reducing waste caused by bottled water consumption.

Why Should I Consider Water Filtration?

During a recent study, non-profit organization Orb and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health collected over 150 tap water samples across five continents and a wide range of urban and rural environments. After testing it, researchers concluded that 83 percent of the water samples collected contained plastic microfibers. 94 percent of the water samples collected from the United States tested positive for plastic fiber pollution–the highest percentage of any country tested.

Plastic micro particles can rub off while we wash clothes, leak off of plastic containers, chip off of plastic materials, and get into drinking water in all kinds of other ways. Not even bottled water should be considered particle-free! Plastics are just one of many contaminants that can enter our drinking water–even if that water meets or exceeds federal standards. Pollution can discolor water, affect its taste or smell, or even endanger your health!

A whole-home reverse osmosis or carbon filter water filtration system can effectively prevent a wide range of contaminants, including giardia and cryptosporidium, bacteria and viruses, lead, nitrates, and many more. The US Center for Disease Control rates nanofiltration and reverse osmosis systems as very effective at removing protozoa, bacteria, viruses, and several other contaminants from the water they treat. If you want cleaner, safer, better-tasting water in your home, a water filtration system is your best option!
