Drinking water

Everyone knows that drinking water is vitally important to the health of the individual, but have you ever considered the quality of the water you drink? An NRDC report found that as many as 19 US cities delivered water to its residents that contained risky contaminants. Drinking water systems can play a role in ensuring that you can truly benefit from your tap water.

Water softeners, for example, can reduce mineral contaminants in your drinking water. Office water cooler systems often include built-in water softeners and can provide cold purified water on tap with a smaller carbon footprint than bottled water. Smaller systems are available for the home and can significantly improve the overall quality of your water.

Not drinking enough water of good quality can cause serious health problems. Almost three-quarters of Americans suffer from what has been called the “hidden epidemic”, chronic dehydration. Mild dehydration can impact on your quality of life, causing fatigue and headaches. Conversely, drinking about two cups of water can offer complete relief for a headache. Your brain’s functions can be negatively impacted by even mild dehydration. Being adequately hydrated can reduce your risk of certain types of cancers, such as bladder, colon and possibly breast cancer.

Considering that our precious water resources are not infinite and, while 70% of the Earth is covered by water, only one percent is useful for human consumption, saving water and ensuring that the water we consume is of the highest quality is vital. Water treatment specialists can provide useful advice on how to improve your water quality.
