Filtered water helps protect the body from disease and leads to overall better health. It removes the Cryptosporidium and Giardia parasites that exist in rivers and lakes and can cause intestinal illnesses in humans. It’s estimated that removing these from drinking water helps to reduce the risk of gastrointestinal disease by more than 33%. Filtered water is also important for children’s developing immune systems.
Other Common Elements Removed with Filtered Water include:
Our High Performance Drinking Water System is fitted with high capacity filters that last twice as long in comparison with others.
It provides contamination free water that is especially pure because it has a 100% lead-free chrome outlet. It comes with the highest grade of a 5-stage ultra-pure filter system that removes 99% of the contaminants, and leaves your water healthy to drink and with a crisp, pure taste.
5 Stage Ultra Pre-Filter System
Uses a high capacity and high grade polypropylene filter to remove particles, rust and dust.
This ensures protection of the membrane system and extends its life.
2nd and 3rd stage:
A carbon block removes unpleasant tastes, chlorine, colours and cloudiness along with some common chemicals.
Uses the highest quality, high rejection TFC reverse osmosis membrane
This removes 99% of the Total Dissolved Solids and contaminants such as lead, arsenic, radium, viruses, fluoride, chromium, bacteria and much more.
Uses advanced coconut shell refining carbon.
The Total Contamination Removal Filter will remove any residual taste from the tank.
What about Bottled Water?
You may be surprised to learn that 40% of bottled water is bottled tap water! In addition to this, there are some other risks that stem from drinking bottled water:
Many of the plastic bottles themselves are created with a chemical called Bisphenol A or BPA, a synthetic hormone disruptor that has been linked to many health problems, including:
- Learning and behavioural problems
- Altered immune system function
- Prostate and breast cancer
- Risk of obesity
- Early puberty in both genders
Bottled Water is the fastest growing segment of the entire beverage industry and it also happens to be one of the biggest polluting ones. The realization that bottled water is seldom of higher quality than tap water has brought the environmental aspect of the industry to new heights.
By filtering your own water at home, you will be doing your part to help the environment and reduce the massive amount of plastic sent to degrade at landfill sites. A process that takes at least 400 years.
It takes three times as much water to produce a plastic bottle than it does to fill it, and even recycled plastic water bottles require the use of petroleum in addition to the cost of transport for the recycling process.
So what are some of the specific health benefits of drinking filtered water?
An increased intake of pure, healthy water will enhance:
