Untreated Water Dangers
The human body is about 60% water. Therefore, having high-quality water to drink can have a direct impact on your family's health. It is even more important when you have small children or pregnant women in your home because their immune systems are already more compromised.
Water treatment solutions can fix both superficial and fundamental problems with your water. You might want to use one of the systems to improve unpleasant tastes, odors or colors. Or, you could use systems to remove more serious dangers, such as bacteria, pathogenic microorganisms, waterborne contaminants, grime, silt or hazardous chemicals.
These are the primary home water treatment solutions on the market:
- Disinfection - The disinfection system can use either physical or chemical processes to remove large particles or kill pathogenic microorganisms. Disinfection uses heat, ultraviolet light, chlorine, ozone or electronic radiation to cleanse your water.
- Distillation - You might have heard of people boiling their water to purify it. This is the concept behind distillation. The steam is collected in a separate container with the most advanced distillation techniques. Unfortunately, solid contaminants might remain.
- Filtration - Reverse osmosis is a popular filtration solution. It uses a physical, biological or chemical process to remove contaminants.
- Water Softener - Water softeners will use sodium or potassium to remove calcium or magnesium from hard water. Soft water will work better with your laundry soap. It will also reduce the calcium deposits on your pots, pans, and pipes.
