Why Aren’t You Using a Drinking Water Filter System?

Article by Olivia Romero

This is going to sound crazy but I recently learned that using a drinking water filter system is the smartest, cheapest and most convenient step you can take to guarantee the health of you and your family.

All of my life water has been my beverage of choice. And believe me, I’ve had to endure a lot of ridicule and outright intolerance from people who thought I chose water just to be difficult. (It drove my mother-in-law CRAZY!)

I can’t help it. I love the taste of water. But it wasn’t until recently that using a drinking water filter system became important to me. Although I’m still motivated by my taste buds, the multitude of health benefits AND dangers of drinking water have become serious considerations.

Drinking water didn’t always carry the risk that it does now. By nature, water has its own water filter system that, ideally, is supposed to supply us with all the purity, nutrients and minerals that are necessary to maintain healthy human life. Unfortunately, with the development of industrialized societies, man-made chemical pollutants have become a scourge on our water, as well as, our food and air.

Fortunately, over the last couple of decades, we’ve become more environmentally savvy. This awareness also includes the realization that our local municipal water systems, which we have relied upon to provide us with safe, potable water, are in potentially serious “hot water.” (Pardon the pun.)

Our local city water systems have found that adding chlorine and other chemicals does an adequate job as a water filter system. These chemicals also don’t cost much and they’re easy to get. But using chlorine has proven to be “over-kill” because it strips out the GOOD along with the bad. As a result, Vitamin E and other important fatty acids become victim to chlorine’s purifying properties.

And speaking of stripped…you’re probably familiar with that dry skin feeling after showering or bathing. Chlorine in your water strips your natural oils, which make you comfortable in your own skin and protect you from premature aging.

Red flags should also go up when I tell you that chlorine reacts in a very negative way when it comes in contact with your home plumbing system. Chlorine causes the heavy metals, such as lead and copper that are in most (98% according to the EPA) household pipes, to leach into the water.

So now that you know all this, what is the next step? Well, you could continue to do research into the current state of your municipal water filter system…or you could turn your research toward finding a personal drinking water filter solution.

In this case, you would put on your “good consumer” hat and look into finding the best drinking water filter system for you and your family. Just keep in mind that you’re looking for a water filter system that removes chlorine, unpleasant taste and odors, heavy metals like lead, VOCs (volatile organic chemicals).

Like any other product, you will find that the quality of these water filter systems ranges from poor, to middling, to excellent.

For your convenience and personal preference, you will find counter top drinking water filter systems or under the counter water filter systems. These are great because of the portable nature of the appliance. If you decide to move, the system goes with you.

And there are several additional bonuses to a finding good drinking water filter system. They are inexpensive, convenient to install and easy maintain. And the more reputable dealers are great with providing technical support.

And there are several added bonuses to a good drinking water filter system. They are inexpensive, convenient to install and easy to maintain. They also allow naturally occurring, beneficial minerals to remain and enhance your health…the way nature intended.

Of course, my favorite bonus about a drinking water filter system is that it provides me with water that tastes GREAT!

So I ask you again, “Why aren’t you using a drinking water filter system?”
