Is Your Water Filter Making You Sick?

Water filters are quickly becoming necessary as studies show we have an excess of 80,000 toxic chemicals in our water. Improper care, replacement or simply choosing the wrong home water filters could put you in serious danger. Below are a few tips to make sure you are protected.

Understanding the mechanics of house water filters can help choose the right water filtration system for you. A reverse osmosis (RO) system has a filter for toxins; however, whole house water filtration system is the only fully effective method to remove chloramines, chlorine and other dangerous chemicals.

It is important to not only filter out chemicals but also to filter harmful heavy metals without filtering the essential minerals such as magnesium and potassium. The WHO, world health organization recommends leaving magnesium and potassium in our drinking water for our health. Quality whole house water filtration works to remove lead from water as well as other heavy metals without stripping the beneficial minerals.

Today’s best technology includes carbon filtration that bind contaminates while leaving vital minerals there. High quality whole house water filtration systems uses a serious of filters to remove 99% of all known contaminates from the source, where the water enters the home. This means that the water for drinking, showering, bathing, washing dishes with and washing clothing with is clean and safe.

Since skin absorbs what it comes in contact with, leaving ourselves unprotected in the shower presents risks from absorbing chemicals as well as inhaling the toxins from the steam. With simple under sink water filters for drinking, contaminates that are left on our dishes and left in our clothing presents health risks that whole house water filtration removes.

All water filters must be replaced on a regular basis to continue to be effective. Once installed, follow the suggested cleaning and replacement requirements that come with your filtration system to be fully protected. Under sink water filters can become ineffective within 6 months leaving you unprotected. Shower head filters too can quickly become ineffective. Regular maintenance of your chosen filtration system is necessary in order to continue to benefit from the filters.

Large whole house filtration systems come with a multi level filtration. The first filter on the system will often need to be changed about every 6 months; however, the next level(s) of filtration can last 3 to 5 years. The multi levels of filtration offer more protection and security.

 

These days water contaminants are the kind you can’t see – toxic chemicals causing cancer, birth defects, infertility, and more. I’m relieved to know I’m now protecting my family’s health because we use state-of-the-art water filtration by Selecto Inc., made right here in the USA. Selecto has been innovating for commercial customers for 25 years. Now these superior filtration systems are available for home and office use through ezclearwater!

Water Softener or Water Filter?

Water, the substance we depend on for survival; odorless, colorless and tasteless yet fundamental to the survival of all life. Water will dissolve nearly everything it comes in contact with and carries that with it. Knowing that our water supply is safe is important and knowing potential problems with the water coming into our home and how to make our water safer and better for us is equally important.

There are a number of potential problems that can occur with the water that comes into our homes; high levels of calcium, minerals and sediment, otherwise known as hard water. Hard water can be really difficult on your home’s plumbing and appliances and for many years people would turn to water softeners that use salt to lessen the harmful effects of hard water.
Unsafe water is another problem we face with our water today. Water with bacteria, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and carcinogens are in large numbers in the public and well water systems. It is common for people to install under sink water filters to provide safe and filtered drinking water. Often the best drinking water filters are installed to remove as many contaminates as possible. This takes care of just the drinking portion of the water we use every day.

Some water softener companies are adding filters to their salt source water softening systems and going door to door selling them and promoting them as home water filtration systems. They unfortunately are not full spectrum filters that will fully protect the home from the vast array of contaminates in the water. Further more, these systems use salt to ‘soften’ the water which is very damaging to the environment and can cause additional health concerns above the water contaminates the ‘filter’ does not catch.
Homes that need a way of softening the water as well as wishing to find security in their water that a whole house water filtration system provides will often be disappointed by the choices they face. A nano-filtration system offers both, a salt free water softener as well as a full spectrum whole house water filtration.

A water filter to remove lead, remove arsenic from water and remove chloramines is combined with a softening system that does not use salt or chemicals. These systems are suited for well water, river water, and even public utilities water and are environmentally safe.

Feel confident that all the water that is used in your home is safe and treated. By filtering and treating the entire house you can feel confident that the water used to wash clothing and dishes is safe. The water your children bathe in and play in is free of harmful bacteria, viruses, pharmaceuticals and carcinogens from the detergents added to the water. Safe water and soft water can be had; be careful of the door to door sales that try to convince you that their salt water softener with a water filter will protect you.

I know you too, will be happy with what I found: the Contamin-Eater Whole House water filtration system by Selecto, Inc., the industry leader in commercial filtration innovationand made right here in the USA.

Contamination from tap water pipelines

Water tap providers are regulated by the government to comply to health standards before they could operate. In response, they make sure that they only use the approved amounts of cleaning chemicals like chloramines, chlorine, and fluorine. This treated water is then distributed by pipeline infrastructure to our homes.

Though the level of water purity may be acceptable as soon as water leaves the treatment plant, a lot of times, contamination may happen on the long pipe journey to reach our homes.

Lead poisoning is a common problem partly caused by pipeline contamination. Lead is used in many pipe connecting lines. The soldering joints to copper pipes are also sources of lead that dissolves in water. Usually if water sits in a pipe for six hours, it would contain a higher amount of lead if your pipeline uses lead pipes or fittings.

Since 1986, Congress has regulated the amount of lead used on pipes, faucets or any pipe fittings that would need the use of lead solder. For the lead solder, not more than 0.2% is allowed, while on lead pipes and faucets, not more than 8%.

Lead was a preferred choice back in late 19th century and early 20th century. Not until the negative health effects had been documented, it was widely used throughout the states.

Rusting is a major cause of leaks. Once a pipeline is leaked, microorganisms may combine with the water. Other natural minerals may also leak in amounts of harmful metals like mercury and arsenic, depending on where the pipes pass through. Rust is formed by the reaction oxygen and iron when exposed to water or air. The flaking on the surface of contact would eventually lead to pipe disintegration.

For the most part, lead pipes had been replaced with copper or iron nowadays. Rust proofing had been improved with modern methods. The sad reality is that there are still reports of lead contamination every now and then due to unchecked lead levels on our water tap. We could always rely that the government is doing its job to regulate and check compliance of water providers. But we should also consider that it would be difficult to make sure regulations are followed to the letter all the time. The better way to deal with it is to make sure that protection would start the moment water flows in our homes through commercial home water filters systems.

Are You Allergic to your Water tap?

It may seem odd but there such a thing a being allergic to water. This is a special type of water, the type that flowed in to approximately 265 households near Charleston, W.Va. They used it for shower, cooking, and drinking. Only recently they realized that their flowing tap has high levels of contaminants. After comparing notes with neighbors, they were surprised that a lot of them had common skin allergies and other types of skin burns. They all blamed it on nearby coal companies. Lawyers are currently working on a formal complaint against these alleged violators.

A sad reality to note is these things happen with fact that we have all the means to detect and regulate dangerous chemicals from being used alongside our water source. Unchecked violations are mounting through the years, which is also directly proportional to the environmental and population health damaging effects. All you need to do is dig through government archives. The word carcinogen, which refers to cancer causing substances, is alarmingly linked nowadays to our drinking supply. Although this would not be the case decades ago but it may also be possible that it’s just now that those affected are being heard. Still, the government is having a hard time with strict implementations because huge businesses are involved and laws are not yet fully defined to be applicable for new industrial processes.

The only temporary way to protect ourselves immediately is to be careful with what we eat and drink. The water filter industry for households was born due to that need of having access to safe drinking water at home. Of course, having an alternative solution at home doesn’t mean that violators could go ahead and pollute our water source. At least while the government takes its sweet time to find a way to track down and impose sanctions on violators, we have an option to protect our families.

Water to lose weight?

Let’s assume that you are currently in the process of shifting to a healthy lifestyle. You jog at least a mile every morning, did away with those candies, sleep at least 8 hours a day, and of course eating just right. It may seem odd but recent studies show that water could actually help lose weight. Well, it’s not like you need to lace it with some fat burning substance or dissolve pills that takes away your appetite. There is but one simple rule, you drink it. Of course it may sound a bit silly, you drink everyday anyway so what else do you need to with it? This is how it works, instead of consuming amounts of SSB (sugar-sweetened-beverage) you substitute water for it. Now that’s easy.

Researchers from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and the Harvard School of Public Health conducted a study. They concluded that in two days, for ages 2-19 up to 235 excess calories are gained from these SSB’s or any sweetened liquid beverage. By simply drinking water in place of them you are indirectly losing by not gaining any. In a different perspective, according to an expert, a 15 yr old boy would have to jog for 30 minutes just to lose the calories from one can of soda. Imagine doing that for all sodas that you may consume in a day. How many non-water beverage do we consume for a day? A week? A month? Think of the total excess calories that we should’ve avoided. Even without the calorie loss benefits, the savings from refraining from SSB’s should also be taken into consideration. An active lifestyle is still the most effective option but not all have the time for it. Now consider this, we pay so much just to stay fit. In reality we are just paying to lose what we shouldn’t have gained to begin with.
