Health & Water: Is Your Tap Water Safe to Drink?
December 8, 2014
The following article was written from information gathered from several agencies. California’s Water Districts are heavily regulated and do a great job working to keep us safe. Every home is different, and no matter what water municipality you live in it’s a great idea to have your home water tested to really know what you are drinking.
Installing a whole house water purification system in your home can be beneficial for the entire family.
Did you know? “Chlorine, added as an inexpensive and effective drinking water disinfectant, is also a known poison to the body,” says Vanessa Lausch of filter manufacturer Aquasana (Scientific America, “Tapped Out”). It’s hard to imagine that the water coming out of the tap in your family home could essentially be putting you and your family at risk, but this may actually be the case. The Natural Resources Defense
Council reported that while many urban residents could drink tap water without serious health threats, some contaminants pose risk to infants, pregnant women and people with deficiencies in their immune systems. In the NRDC’s report “What’s on Tap,” they name two factors that are imminent threats to drinking water: old pipe systems and weak legislative protection for water purity.
Home water purification systems can provide clean water, free of harmful contaminants, as soon as you turn on the faucet.
