Despite the EPA’s stringent drinking water regulations, millions of Americans still experience Water related illnesses

each year. How can that be?

When our water comes in from our lakes and rivers, it’s sent to municipal water treatment plants where they do their best to kill off all the harmful contaminants that could prove lethal to us; for example the dangerous chemicals found in pesticides, disease-carrying microbes and bacteria, and heavy metals like lead. However, no filtering system is perfect, and many of us would be wise to take the extra precaution of installing our own personal filtration system!

There are many different ways to purify your water, and a variety of water filter types to choose from. Depending on where you live, certain types of water filters can prove to be more effective than others. Often, you will need more than one type to achieve almost 100% contaminant free water!

But never fear: filtered water systems are notoriously low maintenance. Once your system is up and running, you’re set for at least a year, saving both your time and energy.

Purifying your water is also cost effective and incredibly environmentally friendly. Filters ensure water isn’t wasted by storing it for future use, and also cuts down on the need for plastic bottle use and production.

Easy on your mind, pocket, and the planet? Let’s call that a win-win-win!

Pro Tip: don’t slack on routine filter maintenance. As amazing as home water treatment can be, filters that aren’t properly cared for can do just as much damage, if not more, as unfiltered water.
