Why Invest in a Water Filtration System?
Not sure if your tap water is safe? More and more news reports are pointing to unsafe drinking water supplies. The federal government has formally recommended people filter their drinking water, and more and more studies are showing that our drinking water contains questionable substances. The following are just a few things you’ll want to investigate:
Water Purification Methods – Far From Perfect
Our water purification methods here in Charlotte can result in chlorine byproducts, some of which are known to be detrimental to your health.
Pharmaceuticals in Your Drinking Water
So many people dispose of pharmaceuticals by dumping them down the toilet or drain that our water reserves are chock full of prescription medicines. People also excrete excess hormones from oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy when they use the toilet, meaning our purification systems are challenges with excess hormones and pharmaceuticals. While our purification processes do their best, tests show that many people have residual hormones and pharmaceutical products in their water.
Viruses in Your Drinking Water
Many viruses are also carries in drinking water, including one that recently made headlines: the legionella virus. This virus was responsible for the death of an Illinois woman who drank the contaminated water in her dentist’s office.
This virus, along with many others, is present in most everyone’s water. It is not considered dangerous unless it multiplies – which can actually happen in water heater if you keep your heater below 140 degrees Fahrenheit. You can set your heater for that high, but of course, water of that temperature presents a scalding risk. That’s why it’s best to install a mixing valve that will only deliver water that is under 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
