Why Filter Water?

why-filter-water

Water filters give people access to cleaner water than what they can get from the local council, right at their own kitchen tap.

Why filter water when you can just drink it straight from the tap? Isn’t it clean already?

There are many reasons why it’s a good idea to filter water

Water filters provide better tasting and smelling drinking water by removing chlorine, chemicals pesticides or other common tap water contaminants such as dirt, bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, chlorine, pesticides and herbicides and  fluoride.

These contaminants may be in your home's plumbing system, or in the pipes between the local treatment facility and your home.

While you may not be able to taste them all, removing these contaminants make a big difference to your health and wellness, especially long term!

As the saying goes,

If you’re not using a water filter, you are the water filter.

Water is a fundamental necessity for all living things

Drinking clean, filtered water protects the body from disease and leads to much better overall health and vitality.

When clean, and tasty drinking water isn’t available on tap in a family’s home, research shows that people are more likely to consume less healthier alternatives such as juices, cordials or softdrinks. What do you suppose happens when these options aren’t so readily available?

Water consumption goes up!

It’s a wonderful experiment to try with your family and friends.

Take away all the non water drinking alternatives, and see if your family members drink more water.

The more water you and your family are drinking, the more important it is to make sure it’s as clean as it can be.

Why filter water?

The biggest priority in water filtration is to prevent water-related illnesses and diseases. That’s why our government uses chlorine to disinfect it from bacteria.

According to the CDC, some of the most common causes for public outbreaks in tap water is:

      • Copper
      • Salmonella
      • Hepatitis A
      • E. coli
      • Norovirus

Lead, among other heavy metals can cause even more serious health issues if people are exposed to contaminated water.

These common contaminants can cause problems; especially for the elderly, infants, young children, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems. Health issues that contaminants in our water can cause include gastrointestinal upset, reproductive issues, and neurological challenges.

Reduce single use plastic bottles

One more big reason why to filter water - it’s far better for the environment to use a water filter instead of buying bottled water.

When you use a benchtop water filter, you are able to create your own purified water and store it in your own stainless steel or otherwise glass water bottle.

Fortunately, people around the globe are waking up to the microplastics issue we have and how badly it is hurting our oceans and our environment and many are shifting towards using reusable bottles instead.

Having a convenient source of filtered water in every home will be a vital key to helping our world become a more sustainable, healthy planet which is life-promoting, not destroying. A simple benchtop gravity filter really goes a long long way to making this a reality.

Let’s put an end to the plastic waste that litters our land and oceans.

How do I know if my water is safe to drink long term?

The government do a good job of pumping sanitised water to our homes, but it may not be as clean as you’d like it to be.

The only way of knowing for sure what’s in your water, is to take charge of your water filtration and decide for yourself - what level of risk you’re willing to accept.

We could all do with less of these contaminants in our body:

      • Chlorine
      • Chemicals Pesticides and herbicides,
      • Bacteria Virus
      • Heavy metals
      • Fluoride

When you know some of these things could be lurking in your drinking water, it’s only natural to want to do something about it.

If that’s you, then you’re in the right place.

We’re passionate about helping people all around the world make it a healthier and happier place to be. That’s why we’ve created some of the world’s most effective benchtop gravity water filters.
