Today we’re going to talk about how to get safe, pure water flowing out of every faucet in your home.
The Flint, Michigan water crisis pulled back the curtain on just how bad our city water can be.
We already knew it was loaded with chlorine, now we know our drinking water can get so bad it becomes deadly.
As we’ll talk about in a minute, pure water is also important if you want to stay looking young for as long as possible.
Sometimes you don’t realize how bad the water in your home is until after you do something about it. And when you do…
- You pour that first glass and see how it’s crystal clear
- You lift it up and before taking a sip notice there’s no fishy or chemical smell
- Then you take a drink and it’s oooooh so good
We don’t often think of water as tasting good, but if you’re used to tap water, or even a lot of bottled water, a cold glass of pure water can satisfy you like no other beverage on earth.
How Bad Is Our Water?
Even if your local water treatment facility does a fine job of filtering your water it can still become contaminated if the pipes carrying the water to your home are old and rusted.
What about bottled water?
Bottled water is a poorly regulated industry. The government doesn’t even try keeping this a secret. Here’s a quote from the Environmental Protection Agency website:
“Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants”
What the EPA is saying is that, yes, your bottled water is polluted, but you shouldn’t worry about it.
I don’t know about you but if there’s even a small amount of lead, human feces, chemicals, or pesticides in my drinking water I’m going to be worried.
Not being much better than tap water is one of many reasons you should pass on bottled water. Here are a few more…
- It’s expensive
- It’s inconvenient
- Plastic waste is bad for the environment
And unless you’re buying bottled water by the truckload you’ll still be cooking and bathing with dirty tap water.
How To Get Pure Water
A simple solution that provides you with clean, pure water flowing from every faucet in your home is a whole house water filter.
This is not a cheap solution and if you’re not handy you’ll need a plumber to install it, but it’s worth every cent.
Your whole house filter is also an amenity that can increase your property value!
Perhaps the best benefit is that you’ll be protecting your youthful appearance.
The Chemicals In Tap Water Can Ravage Your Skin & Hair
Chlorine is a chemical solvent that can strip away the natural oils that nourish your skin and hair.
Over time, this can have a weathering effect on your appearance. It basically dries you up.
The damage doesn’t happen overnight. But after soaking in polluted water thousands of times your looks can pay the price.
A whole house water filter provides your shower and bath tub with purified water that is gentle on your skin and hair.
The upfront investment might be a bit much for some folks.
We understand, but after that, you’ll enjoy pristine water throughout your entire home for years. All you have to do is change the internal filter every once in awhile. (it’s easy to do)
If you have an older loved one, removing toxic metals and bacteria from drinking water becomes even more important because it’s harder for our immune system to deal with such things as we get older.
Providing them with a whole house filter can make a nice gift.
If this filtration unit a bit out of your price range, or you don’t plan on being in your current home very long there’s also world-class counter top filters and filters that attach to your shower available.
