The Benefits Of Having A Home Water Filtration System

contaminated water - needs a water filterWho needs a water filtration system?

If you live in the United States and your water comes from a public supply or a private well, then you do. There are an amazing number of contaminants in the water supply that need to be filtered out and the city water treatment plants cannot completely remove all of the elements on the list. Some slip through the cracks. The treatment facilities do little or nothing to remove chemicals from the groundwater. Well, water is probably safe, but chemicals do sometimes seep into your water supply. Chlorine, chemicals, and gasoline additives are just a few of the chemicals that you have to look out for.

If you think that you do not need a water filter, open your eyes and look around. The public utility in your area probably provides tap water for hundreds of square miles. Look at the businesses around your home. Look at all the people. Look at the pollution in the streams. Everything that goes on the ground eventually ends up in the groundwater.

Local governments spray pesticides to control mosquito populations. Electricity providers spray herbicides to prevent trees and bushes from growing near their main lines. No public water filtration system can remove all of the pesticides and herbicides from the water. But, in home water filtration systems like the AquaOx water filtration system can.

Every time that a customer overfills his tank and gasoline spills on the ground, it eventually ends up in the water. The storage tanks for gasoline are underground. You may have seen stations closed, while they dig up and replace their tanks. They did it because the tanks were leaking.

MTBEs are gasoline additives that have been found in public water supplies around the country. It can end up in good water, too if there is a nearby storage tank. It tastes bad, smells bad, and it may cause cancer. Only an excellent water filter can remove MTBE. There are only a few that do.

Your public treatment plants can do nothing about lead in your tap water. The toxic metal lines the pipes that carry the water from the facility to your home. If your home is older, it may even be in the pipes inside your home. You can have your water tested for lead, or you can only buy an in-home system that is certified to block the toxin. Once again, only a few do.

Government officials have stated that no matter how good the public water treatment is, it can not guarantee the absence of Cryptosporidium, a parasite responsible for the deaths of over a hundred people in Milwaukee. It was in the drinking water. Apparently, there is no “feasible” way to test for the microbe. Only a micron filtration system can block it.

Steam Can Cause Airborne Contamination

Chlorine vapors trigger asthma and allergy attacks. When you breathe in chlorine, the side effects could include unexplained headaches and dizziness. A solution for this is a shower filtration system, which will filter out chlorine, preventing the build up of chloroform gas your home.

No one knows for sure all the health problems that could be avoided by installing a quality in-home filtration system. With over 2000 different chemicals found floating around in our tap water and only, but a lowly couple being tested for, that pure, clear water coming from your tap may be clear.But it’s likely not all that pure and could very realistically be causing you and your family either immediate or long term health issues.

The filtration system used by your local utility company will probably protect you from cholera and dysentery, but it will not keep you safe from the dangers of lead, from cancer-causing chemicals and other health problems associated with chlorine. It’s up to you to defend your health and that of your family.

Most public water treatment plants sanitize the water by adding chlorine to it. Chlorine does a great job of neutralizing a lot of contaminants, but it doesn’t do a thing to lead or numerous chemicals readily found in our water. What is needed is a water filter that utilizes activated carbon and specialized micron filters to remove a multitude of contaminants, rendering the water safe for drinking and for any other use around a home.

Conclusion

You can protect your health and that of your family if you invest in a good whole house water filter. You should do some research first because advertising claims are not always 100% honest. But, we have found a water filtration system that has been tested to block chlorine, VOCs, TTHMs, lead, mercury and other harmful elements that could be in your water. We mentioned it above: the AquaOx water filter. You can connect with them on the AquaOx Houzz.com profile or see some educational water filtration facts on Pinterest.

$1 DIY Water Filter in a Bottle

DIY Water Filter in a Bottle

There are hundreds of DIY water filters out there on Instructables, Youtube, etc. There are many ways to make a survival or emergency water filter, so I will first say what are the differences with this filter compared to other methods:

1. The real simple innovation in this design is that it increases the flow and rate of filtration by using air pressure from your mouth instead of waiting several minutes for the turbid water to be filtered by gravity as many other filters do. This simple innovation can help you filter lots of liters of turbid water per hour compared to just waiting for gravity to do it’s work through the filter. In an emergency situation or disaster, this could be a big difference!

2. It works 🙂 It helps remove dust, particles, chemicals and even metals from turbid water. You can kill viruses and bacteria by adding a few drops of chlorine after the filtering process or placing the filtered water in a clear, clean plastic bottle under the sunlight for UV rays to kill them.

3. It’s small and portable, it fits in a 0.5 liter plastic bottle
4. It’s low cost, using available materials like a plastic bottle, filter paper or a piece of cloth or kitchen paper towel and cheap activated carbon (I bought 1 kg or 2.2 lb of activated carbon for , you will use 1/5th or around 200 gr)
5. It’s reusable. You can filter hundreds of gallons of turbid water. Once the rate of filtration becomes slower, you can just take out the activated carbon and replace it with unused carbon. You could use also charcoal, sand and gravel inside the bottle.

I like my old Sweetwater Guardian water filter but I’ve been looking at a gravity filter for years as they are much less work. I considered the Katadyn and MSR gravity filters but I finally settled on a Sawyer system.

Why? Because it’s the same price as the MSR GravityWorks filter but it can filter hundreds of litres of water per day, it has a one million gallon warranty, it’s a 0.1 micron (absolute) filter, and it requires NO replacement filter cartridges!
