And though much of the earth is filled with water, water issues still plague worldwide health. For instance, close to 2.5 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation. Close to three quarters of a billion people do not have access to clean water. And 6 to 8 million people die each year from the consequences of water related diseases.
But that’s the rest of the world. That’s not right here in America, right?
Think again. Water scarcity, water pollution, and water quality are all coming into question as we move forward in time.
Before water reaches your home, it goes through an intense water treatment process designed to remove the bad and leave the good. Chemicals such as chlorine or chloramine are added to neutralize bacteria, viruses, parasites and other contaminants that can be harmful to our health. It also goes through a filtration process that eliminates sediment and dirt.
While our national water filtration system does remove many of the things that have been known to be harmful in the past, there is only so much a nationwide water filtration system can do. That is why many homeowners are taking it upon themselves to go the next step in making sure their drinking water is as safe as it can be.
