Why You Choose Water Filter but Bottle Water?
The impact of bottled water on the environment is catastrophic. The environmental harm from the plastic bottle is created and fulfilled once the used bottle is tossed in the trash. At the same time, drinking purified refrigerator water will save you money and provide you and your families better health.
Many people buy water filters or bottled water in an often mistaken belief that tap water is dirty or harmful to drink. In fact, as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reveals, around 92 percent of US community water systems met “all applicable health-based drinking water standards” in 2018 (up from 85 percent in 2005). In England and Wales, for the year 2017, the Drinking Water Inspectorate reported that 99.96 percent of drinking water met national and European standards (involving some 40 different quality measurements). Those figures are pretty remarkable really, when you consider just how dirty we make water and some of the things (like pesticides and car oil) that people flush down their drains. Even so, the high quality of most drinking water doesn’t stop people spending something like $280 billion, worldwide, each year, buying bottled water that’s several thousand times more expensive than tap water.
The Effect of using tap water:
Your skin is a highly permeable membrane that can easily absorb anything applied to it. Bathing every day in tap water that contains chlorine, chloramines, fluoride and other possible toxins exposes you to a level of these chemicals far greater than you could get by drinking them alone.
While your tap water may be potable, that doesn’t mean it’s pure or healthy. A lot of people can get low-grade infections from bacteria in local water supply-and that can lead to such symptoms as feeling bloated, itchy eyes, stomach cramping, and fatigue. And you’d have no idea what even caused the problems.
A water filter provides clean, healthy water for cooking, as well as drinking, at the convenience of tap water. Water filters reduce the risk of gastrointestinal disease by more than 80 percent by removing cryptosporidium, e-coli and giardia from drinking water. Drinking pure water is especially important for children.
