Water Purification Technology At Home Will Ensure Your Family’s Health
Modern water purification technology has allowed industrialized nations to nearly eradication waterborne illnesses like cholera and typhoid. Treatment facilities can take dirty water from lakes or rivers and make it drinkable.
On the home front, technologically advanced purifiers can be used to ensure protection against anything left in at the treatment facility level.
With the technology available today, anyone can have pure clean H20 flowing out of their faucets. There is no reason for anyone to buy bottled water or be exposed to pollutants. This is something that people need to know.
The plastic bottles used by most bottling companies are a source of pollution and toxic chemicals. Although the plastic is recyclable, most people fail to recycle. The bottles end up in landfills. Plastics are not biodegradable. Scientists have estimated it will take thousands of years for the plastics to disappear, if they ever do.
The chemicals used to make the bottles can seep into liquids stored in them. The chemicals include BPH and phthalates. Both are known endocrine disruptors and possible carcinogens.
With the methods of water purification available today, there is no reason to risk exposure to those chemicals. At home you can drink from glass containers. When you are on the go, you can use stainless steel. Neither glass nor stainless steel will leach contaminants.
Bottling companies create a great deal of wastewater; approximately three times the amount present in the bottle. The transportation of the bottles from the factories to the stores uses oil and gasoline. The farther away the company, the more gas and oil are used.
Many bottling companies, including Pepsi and Coke, use publicly treated supplies as their source. The water does not come from a mountain spring. You would actually be buying a bottle of your own tap-water.
Finally, the methods of water purification used by bottling companies are not as effective as those that can be used at home. They are unable to use submicron filtration, because it would reduce their output. This means that cysts may still be present in bottled brands.
Cysts are parasites in a very early stage of development. During this egg-like stage, they are resistant to all kinds of disinfectants. They can only be boiled to death or filtered out using sub-micron filtration.
Sub-micron filtration is only available in the better home purifiers.
If you have not yet invested in at-home water purification technology, it is time to think about it.
Just make sure you learn how to compare the purifiers on the market, before you buy. They are not all the same.…
