With the first day of spring only days away the warm weather is a good reminder to all of us that we need to drink plenty of water on a daily basis. Doing spring cleaning chores like cleaning out the garage and working in the yard on sunny days, can cause dehydration, headaches, and fatigue for you haven’t planned and don’t have enough water to drink.
While it may seem strange to think about, not all water is alike. In fact, many homes in the US have tap water that contains various levels of contaminants. And, bottled water is not much different, there are very few brands of bottled water that are truly free from contamination and have a pH balance that is healthy for our bodies.
Having a water system installed in your home is a great way to improve the cleanliness of your water. In fact, many systems can decrease the amount of pathogens and contaminants in your water by 99%. As the hot weather begins to settle in and you are inspired to spend more time outdoors – consider these health benefits of drinking water from a home water treatment system:
- The water tastes better. With all of the chemicals, elements, and pathogens cleared from the water before it ever reaches your glass, you will notice a better tasting cleaner water. This could lead to you drinking more water because it actually tastes good.
- Lead is removed. Lead is a metal that is very dangerous if consumed over long periods of time. Whether you water comes from the city or a well, it is possible for it to contain trace amounts of lead.
- Showers and baths are toxin-free. When you take a shower or bath you are dousing your entire body with water … and all of the chemicals, bacteria, and contaminants in it. In fact, a 10-minute shower will expose you to more of these elements than an entire day of consuming tap water. A water treatment system removes the byproducts and leaves you with clean, pure water for bathing.
We are all concerned about the food we eat, how much time we spend in the sun, how much exercise we are getting – and how much water we are drinking. With outdoor activities soon to be underway, make sure you are filling your canteens and water bottles with the purest and cleanest water you can.
