3 Water Treatment System Mistakes to Avoid at All Costs
Let's face it. Buying a water treatment system for your home is no small purchase. If you are currently in the market for one of these in-home water purification systems, I'd like to make you aware of 3 mistakes you should avoid at all costs when making your purchasing decision.
Mistake #1 - Assuming that clean drinking water is your only concern.
While making sure that your family has safe, clean water to drink, you also have to remember that the best water treatment should cover your cooking and bathing/showering needs, as well as, protection from plumbing pipe corrosion.
It doesn't do you any good to drink clean water, but eat food that's been cooked in water containing dangerous chemical toxins like herbicides and pesticides.
Furthermore, if you purifiy your drinking water, but use regular tap water to bathe and shower, you're being exposed to high levels of chlorine. Chlorine not only strips your skin of essential oils, but it also creates a harmful gas in the shower steam. This chlorinated steam can aggravate asthma and other respiratory sensitivities.
All the chemicals contained in unfiltered tap water have the potential of leaching lead, copper and other heavy metals from the pipes in your home's plumbing. These metals are poisonous and can have a serious effect on the health of your family...especially small children.
Mistake #2 - Relying on bottled water as an effective water treatment system.
The bottled water industry has enjoyed an explosive success due to consumer awareness of dangerous water pollution. The problem with thinking that bottled water uses the best water treatment is that it's a complete fallacy. There are absolutely NO government standards or regulations requiring bottled water to be any cleaner or safer than tap water. A water company could be filling these bottles with a garden hose, slapping on a label that reads, "pure mountain spring water" and you would never know the difference.
Even if bottled water companies make an effort to purify their water, you are still left with the plastic waste that these bottles create. Over 60,000,000 plastic water bottles a day are being dumped in land fills. In my way of thinking, this is NOT the best water treatment system.
Mistake #3 - Purchasing a water purificiation system that requires expensive add-ons and heavy maintenance.
Reverse osmosis and distillation are popular water purification systems that have some technical problems when it comes to filtering certain contaminants. There is a whole host of chemical toxins and dangerous bacteria that these systems, by themselves, cannot get rid of. I won't bore you with details, but it involves the molecular size of these toxins.
If you want to get rid of these water polluters, a reverse osmosis or distillation water treatment system will require a carbon filter add-on. This is an on-going expense and inconvenience as these filters must be purchased and changed on a regular basis.
Additionally, a reverse osmosis water treatment system requires a diaphragmed storage tank due to the slow speed of clean water production.
These are unnecessary expenses when you consider that there is a less expensive, more comprehensive and convienent water treatment system available.
It is probably apparent that I've done my research when it comes to the best water treatment system. I believe that a system based on multi-stage filtration is the most effective when it comes to removing most chemical pollutants and bacteria. I say "most" because I've learned that there isn't any water treatment system that can be 100% certain.
That being said, however, multi-stage filtration comes as close as possible. The cutting-edge technology behind multi-stage filtration means that you can rest easy knowing that you're providing safe, clean water for every household use. Multi-stage filtration products come in a wide variety of convenient appliances...include whole-house filter systems.
