Water Filtering System
By purchasing a water filtering system you are ensuring that your water will always be safe, regardless of what happens at your water treatment plant.
A few years ago, I lived in Northern Colorado. Our water was always a very high quality, at least that’s what everyone said. We were told that we didn’t need a whole house water filter system. One day I got a glass of water to drink from our faucet. I started to drink the water, and I had to spit it out in the sink. The chlorine smell was overwhelming and the taste was…YUK! That day, I wished I’d have bought a water filtering system.
I got on the phone and called the City water department, and lodged my complaint. They told me that they would look into it, and let me know what they found out. Well, to my surprise, they called me back a few hours later. It seems someone had left the valve on a tank of chlorine turned on. I guess this tank was a second tank, so the amount of chlorine was doubled. They turned the tank off, and all was well. That’s the day I decided that I needed to get my own water filtering system.
I am sure that these little mistakes happen quite often. Way more often than they would like you to know about. And even when things are running perfect, there are still questions about safety. This is why you should check out a water filtering system.
October 4th, 2010. The Citizen, Auburn, NY – “Trihalomethanes are a disinfection byproduct,” said Eileen O’Connor, director of Cayuga County Environmental Health Services. “When chlorine is added to clean the water it reacts with organic material in the lake water and causes these chemicals to form. The longer the chlorine is in contact with the water the longer it has to form more of these chemicals.”
“According to the EPA’s website, trihalomethanes, or THMs, are a family of chemicals that include chloroform and bromoform. While some studies have shown an increased risk for developing cancer in lab animals, others have been inconclusive.”
Now, I am concerned that some of the studies that have been done, are inconclusive as to whether or not this chemical increases the risk of cancer. But the studies that do show an increased risk, scare me.
A water filtering system will remove the chlorine from your water
This will significantly reduce the trihalomethanes your family will be subjected to. A whole house water filter system is needed to make sure that the water you use, is safe.
Right now the cheapest, safest way to transport water to your house that is safe to use, is to use chemicals in the treatment process. Many of these chemicals have saved millions of lives by reducing waterborne diseases like typhoid, Amoebiasis, Cryptosporidiosis, Cyclosporiasis, Giardiasis and probably a hundred others. That is why a water filtering system is so important. It is important to your family’s health. With a little searching, you can find the perfect water filtering system, before you need it.
