With hydration being a key element to our survival, the quality and purity of the water we consume can radically influence our health and well-being.
Unfiltered tap water contains contaminants including chlorine; which is necessary to disinfect the water, kill germs and prevent the spread of waterborne diseases such as Cholera and Thypoid, but isn’t so great for our bodies to be exposed to… let alone drink.
On the other hand, the list of downsides associated with bottled water; on one’s health and the environment, is very long and rather alarming at this point in time.
In addition to the chemicals that could leach into the drinking water when the plastic bottles are exposed to the sun or stored in the heat, bacterial contamination has been detected in 5-gallons re-usable bottles.
So, if you’re looking for the best option for your family, yourself and our beloved planet earth, filtered water has proven to produce potable water worthy of our trust.
Here are some reasons why you need to install a water filtration system:
1. Filtered water is free of impurities and contaminants
It’s quite undisputable that filtered water is pure and contaminant-free.
Water is filtered by passing through sequential stages of filtration and purification to remove foul taste, odor, impurities, dangerous contaminants, bacteria and even viruses, while retaining healthy minerals that balance the pH of the produced drinking water.
2. Tastes and smells good
Taste issues are immediately resolved with the installation of a water filtration system. In comparison with bottled water, filtered water tastes just as good, if not even better!
Water filtration systems include a minimum of one carbon filter aimed at enhancing taste and odor of water by eliminating the chemicals and contaminants causing them in the first place. Leaving you with fresh tasting filtered water free of any unpleasant odor.
3. Saves you money in the long run:
While purchasing bottled water might seem cheaper, installing a water filtration system has been proven to be much more economical in the long run.
Daily household consumption of drinkable water varies from one to another.

Whenever you fancy drinking clean, contaminant-free water, you can turn on the dedicated faucet and the system provides it in a few seconds. Also, you can simply choose a container of your choice; BPA-free reusable plastic bottle/ glass/ stainless steel and fill it up with this fresh and healthy water to take along with you when out and about or chill in the fridge for later.
