Water is essential for everyone as our body depends on the water to survive. Water makes up about 60 percent of the body weight. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body needs water to work properly. Lack of water can lead to dehydration and make you tired as it drains your energy. So how much water should you drink every day? A simple question with no definite answer. It is normally advised to have eight glasses of water every day. But do you know what is in your water or how safe it is for drinking?

Environmental Working Group (EWG) has a complete source available on the quality of U.S drinking water. They have compiled 28 million water records that serve about 280 million people in the country. They have aggregated and analyzed this data which is collected from almost 50,000 public water utilities nationwide.

Their findings are scary. They found dozens of industrial and agricultural contaminants all across the U.S, which according to the scientists can pose a serious health risk.

Solution: Using RO Filtration

You can use a filter to remove most of these contaminants from the water. Reverse Osmosis Filtration is a way of filtering water and is one of the best ways to achieve safe water for the home. International Water Association has published that Reverse Osmosis removed more than 90-99.99% of all the contaminants from drinking water supply. RO systems remove pollutants from water including nitrates, pesticides, sulfates, fluoride, bacteria, pharmaceuticals, arsenic and much more. Also, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Reverse Osmosis Systems have a very high effectiveness in removing protozoa, bacteria, viruses, contaminants such as lead. RO Filtration system not only removes the improves the impurities but also greatly improves the taste of water and has simple maintenance.

NSRO42C4 is a Reverse Osmosis drinking water filtration system by North Star. It is installed under the sink and offers the convenience of on-demand water right under your tap. This system reduces Contaminants such as lead, cysts (Giardia, Cryptosporidium), sediment, rust, sodium, chromium, and chlorine taste and odor

Water softeners are another such solution which can help to soften the hard water.

Healthy and safe drinking water provide a sense of security for your family. And If you live in an area that’s plagued with water issues and concerns, filtrations can be a good way for you to feel safe about the water that you’re drinking.
