Sounds like a silly question, right? But, consider this: if you do not have a home water filtration system, your body is forced to become your water filter.
It is common knowledge that sometimes things go wrong with our tap water. Sometimes municipally treated water becomes unsafe because of human error, a machine gone haywire, a flood, or simply an overgrowth of algae or bacteria. In spite of their best efforts, your water may still be delivered to you with chlorine, nitrates, iron, sodium, and prescription drugs. Well water also comes with its own set of worries – like higher concentrations of iron, manganese, sulfates, and even arsenic, gasoline, the gasoline additive MTBE, and pesticides.
So, do you feel up to swallowing all that and letting your body sort it out? There are better options out there. How about a reverse osmosis drinking water system? This little piece of technology is hidden under your kitchen sink and takes on the duty of filtering out the impurities by forcing every drop of drinking water through a semi-permeable membrane. The molecules of common contaminants like copper, arsenic, chlorine, giardia, pesticides, cysts, and nitrates are too large to pass through the membrane and are left behind and flushed away – and you are left with healthy, refreshing water. That’s a load off your body’s filtration system!
RO systems can also be configured to serve your ice maker, coffee machine, and instant-hot water dispenser. For just pennies a gallon, you can feel good about drinking tap water again – and give your body a much needed break!
