Water: A Necessary Danger
So obviously we all have a vague idea that water is important. But did you know that your body is made up of fully 60% water?! We need over two liters of water a day in order to function comfortably, and so it is important that your water is pure. Bad water, depending on what it’s contaminated with, can cause all kinds of horrendous problems, such as birth defects, the spread of epidemic disease, stunted growth, and learning disabilities in children. There are over 2,100 known water pollutants that could be messing with your drinking water in any given territory, but some of the most common include:
-Too much flouride
What You Can Do About The Risk
The only way to really make sure your drinking water is contaminant free is to invest in a home water treatment system. Home water treatment systems are the gold standard in water filtration systems, because, unlike many public inspection methods, they don’t just start the water treatment process at the point of collection in the reservoir or water tank. Home water treatment evaluates all the water that comes into your home, making the distance between collection and consumption virtually nil. The best water systems also pull double duty as household water softener systems, reducing the prevalence of benign but harsh minerals in your water.
How To Find The Best Home Water Treatment System
Many consumers are intimidated by shopping for things when there’s a certain amount of information asymmetry involved. To you, water looks like water, and you’re not sure you’d know the difference between a “good” or a “bad” system if it hit you in the face! A few tips for feeling a bit more confident about your home water treatment system choice are below:
-Ask someone who works at a hard ware store what they think
-Read consumer reviews of the products you are considering online (but make sure they’ve been posted over a believable period of time and seem legitimate)
-Do research into the methods used by each filtration system
-Ask friends and family about their own water treatment methods
We hope we’ve impressed upon you the seriousness of the issue. If nothing else, we want you to have soft, luscious hair free from hard water damage in time for winter!
