Water Filtration Plant – why do we need them?
Have you recently thought that installing a Water Filtration Plant would be a good idea? Lately, many cities have been debating whether tap water is safe to drink. You may have heard government statements on the news, for example, that “your city’s drinking water is indeed safe”.
However, according to a recent Washington Post study, drinking water in 24 Pakistani cities is contaminated with chemicals and prescription drugs! Who can we trust on this issue? Who can we trust on this issue?
Here is some information to help you decide whether to install a water filter in your home
There is no doubt that tap water contains chemicals that are harmful to your health. Tap water is usually recycled from dirty river water, but also from wastewater. This ‘recycled’ water is then treated. This ‘recycled water’ is treated with strong chemicals to remove harmful bacteria. It is then subjected to a Water Filtration Plant price in Pakistan process called reverse osmosis.
Chlorine, one of the chemicals used in the treatment process, is known to cause several types of cancer. In most cities, fluoride is actually added to drinking water by municipal treatment plants. Dentists claim that fluoride protects your teeth and your children’s teeth from decay. Because of this claim, municipalities have decided to fluoridate for many years. However, it is possible that the fluoride added to municipal water supplies is contaminated with arsenic and lead.
These contaminants aside, consider that laboratory studies have shown that toxic levels of fluoride in laboratory animals can cause behavioral changes and ultimately brain damage. Brain damage includes degeneration similar to Alzheimer’s disease and behavior similar to attention deficit disorder (ADD). Is this enough to make you actively consider purchasing a water purifier? If not, it is important to note that fluoride has also been linked to uterine and bone cancer. These chemicals should not be present in water.
Another checkpoint is lead pipes in tap water. Some pipes in American cities date back to Victorian times! Decomposing old pipes reduces water pressure and makes it easier for debris, dirt, and bacteria to get into the water after it has been filtered at the treatment plant. These old pipes also inevitably leave traces of lead in the tap water.
Did you know that even low-level lead poisoning can lead to learning disabilities, behavioral disorders, and even reduced general intelligence in children, as a result of legislation passed a few years ago to stop the use of lead paint in homes and schools? Lead poisoning in adults can lead to increased blood pressure. It can also interfere with the body’s electrical system. If the plumbing in your town is old, you should install a good water filter in your home.
Can you solve these problems by simply buying and drinking bottled water? Absolutely not. The regulations governing bottled water production are no stricter than that governing tap water production. In fact, some bottled waters are simply labeled as tap water. If you have a good water filter at home, you can use tap water in plastic bottles. It is much better for the environment to buy a stainless steel water bottle and carry the water with you throughout the day. With a personal water purifier, you know where the water you drink comes from.
Now, wouldn’t it be a good idea to install a water purifier? You no longer have to risk your family’s health with drinking water delivered through old, rotting pipes. A good water filter will clean your water by removing drugs, chemicals, and bacteria. The best investment you can make in your life may be a water purifier.
