Our partners at Permatech shine light on the importance of what kind of water you choose to drink

We all agree on the importance of keeping our bodies hydrated by consuming adequate amount of water. Now, let’s talk more about the type of water you choose to drink.
Some may choose to drink tap, distilled or bottled water; however, if you want to drink clean, refreshing water from a system that you can trust, then you’ll need to turn to Reverse Osmosis (R.O.) Drinking Water Systems.
Here are some of the reasons why RO water is the best and healthiest option:
1. Removes Contaminants
The negative effects of contaminated water on our health is serious.
Regardless of where you live, the water in your home contains much more than H2O. To name a few:
Barium, Radium, Fluoride, Selenium, Chromium, Nitrates & Nitrites, Copper, Arsenic, Lead, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), and Cyst (Cryptosporidium)…
A Reverse Osmosis (RO) system contains sequential stages of filtration followed by a special membrane that filters out most of the heavy metals and microscopic organisms as small as 0.001 micron.

2. Economical and Eco Friendly
If you do not drink tap because you have concerns about what it contains, it is highly likely that you are constantly buying bottled water.
One bottle might not cost much, but if we do the math… Bottled water costs a lot of money in the long run.
Let’s not dismiss the fact that the plastic bottles create lots of waste and would most probably end up in landfills for hundreds of years before they biodegrade.
If the quality of the water is the reason you choose it, bottled water is simply filtered tap water poured into plastic bottles that are then transported to selling points. This journey includes being stored in hot warehouses, or in many cases under the burning sun.
On the other hand, a Reverse Osmosis System pays for itself within a short time. Not only will you have direct access to pure and fresh drinking water whenever you need it, you also will be paying just pennies a gallon.
3. Excellent for Cooking
Logically, the quality of the water you cook with affects the taste of the food you prepare.
Let’s think about soups, boiled pasta, homemade bread… Pure water makes all the difference.
Municipal tap water generally contains high amount of chlorine. Chlorine not only makes food taste odd but also discolors it too. Reserve Osmosis Systems remove chlorine.
With Reverse Osmosis water, even your tea and coffee will taste better. In fact, most of the best restaurants use R.O. water exclusively for cooking.
4. Crystal Clear Ice Cubes
Have you ever notices that your ice cubes were cloudy and white? That is due to the gases and impurities in the water that crystalize as the water freezes.
Ice forms from the outside in, and impurities are forced to enter the ice cube’s center causing the cloudy appearance.
Crystal clear ice cubes look great in drinks and cocktails, however, there is more to it. Cloudy ice cubes tend to melt faster and be softer than clear ice cubes made using pure water from an RO system. Thus, Ro water ice cubes would keep drinks cooler for longer.
5. It Tastes Good
Last but not least, R.O. drinking water tastes good. Once you remove the impurities from the water you will be left with nothing but clean, refreshing water.
In addition to the RO membrane used to filter out contaminants, Permatech Reverse Osmosis Systems include 3 carbon filters. The final carbon filter is referred to as the “polishing” filter. It is a Granulated Activated Carbon filter that is coconut based and it’s main purpose it to ensure that any lingering odors or tastes are eliminated.
Once you install Permatech Reverse Osmosis Systems you will immediately notice significant improvement in both the appearance and taste of the water.
In fact, families that start using Permatech Reverse Osmosis Systems often find themselves consuming more drinking water and less soda and sugary juice.
You might be wondering: Are There Any Drawbacks?
The only thing that sceptics have come close to pointing to as a drawback is that RO Systems filter out minerals that they assume to be valuable to health.
Realistically speaking, we need to get most of the minerals our bodies require from food. Moreover, the dissolved mineral contained in drinking water are organic, which are difficult for the body to absorb. This pretty much negates any potential health benefits.
In Conclusion, the remarkable benefits of reverse osmosis water greatly outweigh any minor objections.
