You know that bleachy, eye burning stuff used to disinfect swimming pools? That is also used to disinfect your drinking water. That’s why your tap water might taste a bit bitter and have a bleach smell that really shouldn’t be there. A decent carbon filter will reduce the chlorine by 99%.
2. Dirty Pipes
Your drinking water may be relatively free of dirt when it leaves the water treatment works, but it travels a fair distance before it gets to your taps. It could be travelling miles through rusty pipes, and that’s even before it has to go through the pipework in your building which could also be very old.
Aside from the chemicals and dirt that can get in to your water, perhaps the scariest of all is the thought of microorganisms. Ultraviolet purification zaps these little germs and stops them from reproducing. This needs to be done once any chlorine has been removed.
4. Essential Minerals
You don’t want absolutely everything taken out of your water. Water is healthy because it is full of essential minerals like Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium that your body needs.
Some people are going crazy right now for reverse osmosis systems. Our H2O4Life RO system leaves in the correct amount of those minerals our bodies need every day. Whether you drink lots of water or not, everyone should take their vitamins every day to ensure you are getting what your body needs.
5. Taste and Smell
We should be willing to guzzle water by the gallon to be healthier but tap water just doesn’t taste that great. Water should be tasty and you should enjoy drinking it.
