It’s unbelievable how many drinking water filter systems there are available. What’s more unbelievable is the thousands of contaminants that are found in drinking water. That’s why is so important to protect ourselves and our families lives by getting the most efficient and reliable drinking water filter.
There are all different kinds of water filtration systems on the market today, which makes it even important to do your research about each type before you make a purchase.
For example, the most popular and best-selling drinking water filters are Brita products. This is because they are in every store and are easily available to consumers. Plus, people love to buy them because they are so cheap initially! But did you know that it costs more than $20 A MONTH to buy filters to keep them running at their peak efficiency?
By far the lowest quality filter you can get is pitcher and pore-through products. Sure, they’re better than nothing, but you could get a whole lot better system for less than it costs to own one of these. They are built to remove some chlorine and lead, but they don’t remove things like chlorine byproducts, volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), cysts, pesticides, herbicides, and many other harmful substances.
Drinking water filter systems that use distillation and reverse osmosis as a means to purify water have far less benefits than they claim. For one, they remove all the minerals in water that the human body has been built to run on since the beginning of time. The simple fact that no natural source of water lacks minerals like calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium should tells us that we should drink and consume water without them. On top of this, water without minerals is more acidic than usual, creating a more acidic environment in your body in the long-run, which increases your chances of having cancer do to increased free radical production in there environments.
Plus, both drinking water filter types are not that effective at removing synthetic chemicals. Distillation purifies water based on relative boiling point (BP); but most synthetic chemicals have a lower BP than water, so these substances vaporize along with the water, never getting filtered out. Reverse-osmosis filters remove things based on molecular size; again though, synthetic molecules are often smaller than water molecules, making this kind of filtration ineffective.
The best drinking water filters are ones that use a multi-filtration process. The filters I use in my house are point-of-use ones that attach to both my kitchen faucet and all my showers. They utilize some of the best purification technologies available: sub-micron filtration, ion-exchange, and carbon filtration. I love point-of use systems because they assure that the water me and my family consume is purified right before it’s used.
What’s best about the drinking water filters I use is the fact that not only are they the most efficient and highest quality drinking water filter system, they also are the most affordable. With everything said and done, we only pay 9 cents a gallon for pure, healthy, water!
