Water Filters and Purification

Water Filters & Purification

Necessary for survival

Clean water is a matter of universal importance. Like air, water is not a choice: we need it to survive.

So it is deeply disturbing to learn that drinking water is the #4 health hazard in the United States. Groundwater is the source of drinking water for more than half the population, but is it always safe? Groundwater is not required to be disinfected and can be tainted through improper wastewater disposal, septic tank contamination, underground storage tank or landfill leaks or animal waste disposal.

Most city water uses treatment methods that were developed near the turn of the 20th century. Even most bottled water is drawn from city sources and not filtered in any way!

No wonder millions of consumers in North America are looking for ways to ensure the water they use in their homes is safe.

Today there are many kinds of home water filters and purifiers that can remove most pollutants found in city water or from wells and streams. But deciding which model is the most trustworthy takes time and research. To begin your search for the right water filter or water purifier, follow these steps:

  • Have your drinking water tested, either by professionals or using a home test kits. It's a small investment that will pay for itself!
  • Identify which pollutants are in your water and the type of purifier that will work most effectively to remove them.
  • Decide if prefer 'hard' or mineral-free water. Reverse Osmosis and Steam Distiller units remove minerals from water.
  • Identify the size of the system you need. Distillation and reverse osmosis products will produce a limited amount of water per day. Other options may run continuously but require filters or cartridges that need replacing periodically. Look at your family's daily volume of water - and double it so that you have enough even in hot seasons.
  • Find the best price with the highest reliability and a dependable warranty.
