It is basic common sense that hydration matters a lot. Everyone knows that we need to keep hydrated in order to make sure we function properly and can live our best lives. However, one thing that often gets overlooked when we think about staying hydrated is the quality of the water we are fuelling our system with. As important as hydration is, taking care of ourselves with high-quality drinking water is vital. For the most part, the main source of water for a lot of people is basic tap water. While tap water sourced from your municipality is perfectly safe to consume, the system does open itself up for the allowance of water contamination at low-levels between being treated in the facility and coming out of your tap at home. While these levels of contamination are low enough to not pose a risk to your health, there have been occasions where worse contaminations have occurred.
One of the best ways to make sure you are constantly consuming high-quality water is to install a water-filtration system at home. There are a few different options you can choose, ranging from simple and inexpensive, to overhauls of your home’s plumbing systems. Here are a few filter systems to consider in order to improve the quality of your drinking water at home!
Activated Carbon: This type of filter can help remove organic contaminants from your water. These types of contaminants can cause your water to have a slightly off smell or taste.
Reverse Osmosis: This type of filtration system is good for filtering out petrochemicals, pesticides and nitrates keeping your water fresh and high in quality.
Ion Exchange: Best used in combination with a reverse osmosis filtration system, ion exchange can help rid your drinking water of calcium, magnesium and other unwanted minerals in your water.
