Do You Really Need to Filter Your Water?
In short – YES.
What’s in your water is something hard to quantify, because most of the time we just assume that our water is clean and ready to be consumed.
But you might change your mind when you realize how water comes to your house:
The water will be taken from a source, such as groundwater, a lake, or a river. Due to various factors such as fertilization and contamination, though, bacteria can build up in these key catchment areas. This can have major implications for our health in the long term.
To remove the contamination, the water will have to go through a thorough cleaning process. One major inclusion is chlorine, which kills off most bacteria. However, this can lead to combinations that create suspected and potential carcinogens.
The water is then treated further in a bid to get rid of the potential for carcinogens. However, if the water piping that comes into your home isn’t perfect, this can lead to contamination and bacterial build-up once again. The general rule is the older your area, the more likely contamination is taking place.
