What Can a Water Filtration System Remove From Your Water?

Water is the source of life. So much so, that you don't ever need to drink anything else. However, you need to drink the right water in order to enjoy all of the benefits it can provide to your body. If you typically drink your water straight from your household tap, it's important to know that it may have adverse effects on your health. While many people assume that municipal tap water is safe to drink because it's so heavily regulated, that, unfortunately, couldn't be further from the truth.

Most tap water in America is inherently impure. In fact, there are more than 80 regulated contaminants and a much higher number of unregulated toxins present in our drinking water. These toxins can range from medicines to perchlorate, which is an ingredient used to make rocket fuel. Another popular chemical found in tap water, fluoride, may be beneficial when applied topically to our teeth, but it is actually dangerous when ingested. 

Bottled water is expensive, and surprisingly, it is not always free of contaminants. As such, more people than ever are turning to whole house water filters and home water systems for their water needs. This is not only good news for overall health, but also for the environment. When you use a water filtration system, you can effectively remove 99 percent of all contaminants, both biological and inorganic from your water supply. Believe it or not, water that is run through a whole house water filter is inherently more pure than even spring water.

A water filtration system can remove countless toxins from your drinking water, such as:

  • Medicines 
  • Viruses
  • Bacteria
  • Fungi
  • Parasites
  • Chemicals
  • Toxins
  • Additives
  • Dirt
  • Algae

Fortunately, today's water filtration systems can filter an entire home's water supply with ease, resulting in water that is not only healthier, but also tastes better than tap water.
