We’ve all seen the disturbing images of massive islands of discarded water bottles floating in the ocean. And that doesn’t even take into account the polluting fossil fuels burned, not just to create the bottles but also to transport them – often thousands of kilometers – to our supermarkets and convenience stores.
Plastic drinking bottles may also contain chemicals like bisphenol-A, or BPA, and phthalates, which are believed to interfere with hormones in the body. And when bottles are exposed to heat or they age, chemicals in the plastic can find their way into this water we assume is healthy and pure.
So, what’s the solution?
A variety of water filtration and purification systems can provide you with water that tastes better than tap water. Plus, you get the peace of mind and comfort of knowing the water has been filtered from contaminants – like calcium, magnesium, iron, lead, arsenic, copper, nitrates and other pollutants – and that you’re not adding to the big problem of plastic pollution in our environment.
There are 4 types of water purification solutions you may want to consider:
- Reverse osmosis filters: Improve the purity and taste of your drinking water.
- Whole home chlorine filters: Remove chlorine taste and help reduce wear on appliances and fixtures.
- Iron filters: Help get rid of metallic tasting or foul-smelling water and rusty stains on appliances and fixtures.
- Water softeners: Eliminate water-hardening minerals that increase soap scum on hair, skin, sinks, tubs and laundry.
