Water filters are a given, many people think, but is it really so? Yes, if you drink water from the tap, the water should have been filtered. But until it comes your way, even if it had gone through the filtering system it can get contaminated again. This is some scary news. Especially for people who live in areas that generally are not considered having the purest of water. For example the water in the USA is thought to be among the safest in the world. What about the quality of the water in your region? Have you ever checked what is the quality there? Probably not, because you feel safe that if you drink from the faucet, it should have underwent some serious filtration. But still there is the chlorine and some not so good by-products from the disinfection that are flowing in the tap water. Some places do not even report those contaminants to the public and unless you make the effort to check, you will never find out what you are actually drinking. Some pipes can leak lead and contaminate the water even after it has gone through filtering. Not to mention some rural areas where people get their water from wells. Who knows what the water has interacted with until it got there.
Get yourself enough water filters for the house so you feel extra safe – the purity of the water you come in contact with is of utmost importance.
