Choosing An Effective and Safe Drinking Water Dispenser To Safeguard Your Family’s Health
Today, a safe drinking water dispenser is one of the best health investments you can make to protect your family’s health. With so many to choose from, here is a brief guide to ensure you get the most effective one.
With the increasing amount of chemicals getting into the water supply including traces of herbicides, pesticides, lead and chlorine, it is becoming essential to use some kind of home filtration.
For example, the widespread use of chlorine by the municipals to disinfect the water has effectively wiped out diseases like cholera and typhoid. However, chlorine is a toxic substance and thought to be responsible for the huge increase in cancer deaths as it combines with other contaminants to produce harmful THM’s of which chloroform is an example.
When choosing a safe drinking water dispenser, there are a number of things to check for.
To start with, it is best to avoid reverse osmosis (RO) systems as they are unable to remove synthetic chemicals like herbicides because of the way their filters work. These chemicals are molecularly smaller than water and pass through the filters.
In addition they remove trace minerals like calcium and magnesium that you need to stay healthy in the future.
So what is the best type?
The EPA only recommends active carbon block filters for today’s contaminants and here’s why.
They are able to physically remove contaminants and chemically remove them by binding them to the surface of the filter. Many sellers of the RO systems suggest adding a carbon filter on to ensure improved removal rates but what is the point of buying two systems when one will do!
The best active carbon filters use a dual-step process with sub micron filtering to remove 99% of all the bad stuff in your water and leave in those essential trace minerals.
A safe drinking water dispenser can be a countertop, under counter or even a whole house system depending on your needs with the countertop ones starting from under $100.
It pays to research a little like you are now to ensure that your family’s health is protected from the ever-increasing threat of contaminants in the drinking water.
You can also have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that whatever toxins many enter the water in the future, you will still be protected by the most effective safe drinking water dispenser.
