Good for your Health
The official recommendation is that adults should drink between 1.6 and 2.5 litres of water a day.
But while H2O plays a big part in keeping our bodies healthy, there can be a number of foreign elements present in your tap water that could actually damage your health.
Water quality here in the UK is among the best in the world, undergoing strict standards to ensure its safety.
But despite regulations, there have been incidents in the past where water in certain areas wasn’t fit for consumption, causing serious worry for the health of pregnant women, children and the elderly.
Even when water is clean leaving the treatment facility, it still needs to pass through a network of pipes where it can pick up contaminants before it reaches your home.
Here are just some of the issues water filters can tackle, ensuring your water is crystal clear and safe to drink when it comes out of your tap.
Travelling through miles of old pipes exposes treated water to rust and other particles lurking in the water network. And even if public pipes are perfectly maintained, the pipes into and around your building could be very old and add their own rust to the water you drink.
Our range of filters can remove rust particles as the water enters your home, ensuring it’s completely clean before you use it.
The addition of chlorine is a part of the water treatment process that cleans the water, but can also alter the look and smell.
Chlorine is safe to drink in very small amounts, but it’s important to note that there was an issue in 2016 where a large number of households found out they were consuming water that had an unsafe level present.
Water filters can clear chlorine from your tap water, giving you peace of mind in knowing your family has the safest water possible.
Like rust flakes from old pipes, other contaminants can enter your water between the treatment plant and your home. Not only does a water filter catch these before you drink them, they can also alert you to possible issues.
A sudden rise in the number of contaminants in your water can affect your filter, which means you know if your water system needs to be checked for issues – about which you would otherwise be in the dark.
Tap water can contain nasty bacteria, such as cryptosporidium, that can lead to unpleasant gastrointestinal illnesses. While these diseases are bad for the average adult, they can be critical for children and the elderly.
A water filter can catch these microorganisms, significantly lessening the chances of someone in your family developing a gastro bug.
Water filters give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your family is drinking healthy water that is free of contaminants.
