Is your home’s tap water polluted?

Modern-day plumbing has to be one of the greatest inventions ever created. It’s amazing to
think at any given time we have access to clean water at the turn of the handle, flip of the
switch or sometimes the wave of a hand.


But have you ever given any thought to what is actually in our tap water? It seems like a
logical question; especially with the growing priority people have placed on their overall
health and how we’ve become so well informed on what goes into their bodies.


So – What’s In The Glass?
Depending on where you live, tap water is generally safe to drink. However, in some cases,
it’s been shown that tap water can contain traces of chemicals such as chlorine, lead and
fluoride.


Most of us are familiar with fluoride because of our frequent visits to the dentist’s office, but
the other chemicals could be doing more harm than good.


If potential chemicals aren’t giving you reason to pause before taking that drink, then the
taste of tainted tap water will. Tap water that contains chemicals often has a bad or
unpleasant taste. Believe it or not, this is actually one of the main reasons people turn to
bottled water.


Handheld Filters
If you would prefer to self-filter your water at home, a Brita water filter can be a good
investment, but refilling these small filters every time or every few times you’re thirsty can
grow to be a little annoying. For many, the easiest way to be sure what you’re consuming is
healthy for you and eco-friendly is investing in a home filtration system.


Home Filtration Systems
Systems that provide water filtration for your home come in all shapes, sizes and budgets.
Filtration systems can be attached directly to the spouts around your home or can be
purchased as a system that filters all the water in your house before it even hits the faucet.
Investing in water filtration for your home is a proactive way to take control of your health.
Remember, our bodies are composed of mostly water. We should make sure the water we’re
putting into it is healthy.
