Benefits of Clean Water: Use the Everpure Filter H-300
Water is life. However, as a result of certain human activities and industrial development, contaminants have found their way into our water sources -- particularly some provided by municipal water supplies. Fortunately, water filtration systems (like the Everpure water filter H-300) can mitigate these issues and provide a healthy and environmentally-friendly source of water.
Water filters offer homes and businesses (including restaurants and other food service providers) a clean and safe water supply for drinking and cooking. There are numerous other benefits, including:
Reduced Plastic Waste
Americans used about 13.7 billion gallons of bottled water in 2017 -- that’s a 7% increase over 2016. Around the world, a whopping 91% of plastic bottles are not recycled.
It’s estimated that by 2050 as much as 12 billion metric tons of plastic will end up in landfills and the ocean will house more plastic by weight than fish. Despite global efforts to manage landfills and recycle used plastic, demand for the material is not likely to subside quickly.
Filtering your own water (at home or at work) can help reduce plastic consumption.
Diminished Energy Consumption
Plastic bottles are not sustainable. The process of manufacturing the bottles and transporting bottled water expends a significant amount of energy and fossil fuel. The amount of petroleum needed to produce a single bottle is equivalent to a fourth of of the water it holds. With 485 billion bottles produced in 2016 and a rate of one million bottles sold per minute, the world is consuming staggering levels of energy and nonrenewable resources, resulting in a considerable carbon footprint.
In addition, the process of recycling itself (and transporting plastic products to recycling centres) uses fossil fuel energy.
One way of reducing this massive energy consumption is by using water filtration systems. If more households rely on producing their own clean water, demand for plastic bottles can be curbed.
Increased Appliance Efficiency
Limescale buildup in pipes and appliances (e.g hot water heaters, washing machine, and dishwasher) decreases their efficiency and increases the energy consumption and running costs by at least 25%. It can also lead to premature wear, damage, and failure in appliances, shower accessories, faucets, and water heating systems, resulting in costly repairs and replacements.
Large water filtration systems soften water, ridding your system of limescale deposits and keeping the aforementioned issues at bay. Without the resulting buildup from hard water, your pipes and appliances will work at optimal efficiency, keeping energy costs at a minimum.
Reduction of Harmful Substances
In addition to substances like chlorine, sulfides, and lead in tap water, harmful chemicals (from herbicides and pesticides) can also find its way to municipal water sources through runoff. These chemicals can cause several health issues, including reproductive problems, respiratory diseases, and cancer.
Filtration removes large quantities of contaminants, protecting your overall health and wellness.
Avoiding Health Risk from Plastic Bottles
Plastic used for bottled water may contain toxins. Despite the use of BPA-free materials, plastic bottles can still generate harmful byproducts (with exposure to heat or with age). Similar to BPA, these byproducts can act as endocrine disruptors, leading to the following health issues:
- Increased risk of obesity
- Increased risk of certain cancers (e.g. prostate and breast cancer)
- Slowed -- or early -- sexual development
- Learning and behavioural difficulties in children
Approximately 64% of bottled water comes from tap. Contrary to aggressive marketing schemes claiming that bottled water originates from natural sources (like springs and groundwater), most pre-packaged water is in fact glorified tap sold at exorbitant prices.
Healthier Skin and Hair
Bathing in unfiltered water can damage hair and skin. Besides causing hair and skin to become dry and dull, minerals in water can also aggravate skin conditions (like psoriasis and eczema).
Having filtrated water for bathing softens the water and removes any contaminants that might cause your hair and skin to lose their health and luster.
Clean drinking water helps alleviate digestive problems. It plays a part in the breaking down of food, making it easier for the body to absorb nutrients. Drinking water also aids bowel movements, mitigating issues with constipation.
Filtered water also plays a part in diminishing the risk of contracting gastrointestinal diseases. Tap water and other unfiltered sources can contain harmful organisms including:
- E. coli
Improved Flavour and Smell
Bad odor and bad taste are often indicators of poor quality food or beverages. Hardwired for self-preservation, the body uses certain senses (including smell and taste) to detect dangers. We are naturally averse to foul-smelling and funny-tasting liquid. If your water has an “off” odor, you may resist drinking it and become dehydrated.
The filtration process removes chemicals (usually chlorine) responsible for unpleasant flavour and smell, allowing you to enjoy healthy, good tasting water.
Although water is not an instant remedy for losing weight, it can act as a valuable tool in your weight control regimen. Drinking ample amounts of water before a meal can help you feel fuller, so you eat smaller portions. Thirst is also often mistaken for hunger, leading you to eat more than is necessary. Water is also free of calories (no fats, no carbohydrates) and is an ideal alternative to juice, energy drinks, or soda.
Installing a water filter ensures you are drinking clean and great tasting water so you are properly hydrated and less prone to eating binges.
