What’s In Your Drinking Water?
Even the clearest water from a pure, natural spring contains some chemical contaminants. As water travels through rivers and streams, and gets filtered through the ground, it will absorb some of the substances with which it has come into contact. Some of these substances are naturally occurring, while others are man-made chemicals. Municipal water treatment facilities effectively remove most of the harmful chemicals, however, traces of these can still be found in most municipal drinking water. Water that has been sourced from a well and has not been treated by municipal treatment facilities is at even higher risk of being contaminated by chemicals that have leached into the groundwater. Some of the harmful substances commonly found in household drinking water include:
Arsenic – a known carcinogen that also affects the circulatory system
Lead – causes kidney and brain damage and is particularly harmful to children
Chromium – harmful to the kidneys, liver and nervous system
Manganese – harmful to expectant mothers and young children
Aluminum – believed to cause diminished brain function
Barium – linked to high blood pressure
Beryllium – a possible carcinogen
Cadmium – associated with liver disease
Herbicides and pesticides – these can contain thousands of hazardous chemicals and often leach into groundwater
Although the health risks listed above would be the result of long-term exposure to high levels of these substances, they are harmful enough to make any amount of these in your family’s drinking water undesirable.
Whole-Home Water Filtration Systems
Two different kinds of whole-home water filtration systems are most commonly used for residential purposes. They are reverse osmosis and carbon-based filter systems. Both are very effective at reducing the content of contaminants in your drinking water.
Reverse osmosis is a process that purifies water by sending it through a semipermeable membrane under high pressure. Carbon filters, on the other hand, remove impurities and toxins using active carbon. In both cases, the result is pure, clean drinking water that is without any unpleasant taste or smell.
