Installing a filtered water system is a great investment. Not only are you providing protection and peace of mind with regards to your family’s health, but you’re also saving money when compared to purchasing bottled water.

However, if you’re still unsure on the benefits and advantages of a water filtration system, have you ever stopped to consider what’s inside the water in your taps?

What’s In Your Tap Water?

You’re thirsty, so you go to the kitchen and pour yourself a refreshing glass of tap water. However, do you really know what’s in your tap water? Is it just H2O or is there something else added?

Generally speaking, chemicals such as liquefied chlorine, fluorosilicic acid, aluminium sulphate, calcium hydroxide, and sodium silicofluoride are routinely added to our water supply. However, this isn’t to say it’s not necessary to add these chemicals; after all it’s very important that water is treated and made safe to drink. That being said, key scientists are now providing evidence that long-term ingestion of chemicals used to treat tap water could be causing some major health concerns.

It isn’t just water treatment that’s in your tap water that you need to consider with regards to water purity and filtration. After all, water needs to travel to your house, which it often does through the use of pipes. Many of these underground pipes have been underground since the Victorian times; just think of all the undesirable things that could have contaminated those pipes over the decades.

What About Fluoride?

Approximately 10% of the UK’s water supply is fluoridated, despite the fact that fluoridation of water is banned in all other European countries. The chemical fluoride is often found in toothpastes and mouthwashes and in small amounts it is very useful for oral hygiene. However, it is very important that you don’t swallow toothpaste or mouthwash because it’s actually more toxic than lead; it’s used in pesticides to kill insects and rats. With regards to fluoride in drinking water, “tens of millions of people throughout China and India suffer from serious crippling bone diseases from drinking water with elevated levels of fluoride” [source fluoridealert.org ]
