Across the world, millions of people have no choice but to drink unsafe water. And in South Africa, even though we have abundant access to tap water, its quality is usually questionable. Not only is it treated heavily with chlorine—which most people don’t enjoy the taste of—but it can also be contaminated.
Unfortunately, unsafe water isn’t limited to remote, rural areas. Even in developed countries with “good” water, there often hidden dangers like pesticides, herbicides and heavy metals. Sometimes, there might even be bacteria, parasites or viruses in the water. While most of these contaminants won’t affect you right away, they have the potential to harm your body over a period of time as you drink the water and use it in cooking.
Did you know that chemicals from agriculture can end up in the aquifers and reservoirs that our water comes from? These chemicals are meant to keep harmful weeds and insects from damaging crops—they are not intended for humans to consume. But they can end up in tap water anyway, and some research suggests that these chemicals may damage the liver, kidneys, skin, nervous system, and reproductive systems, or even contribute to cancer.
Many people frequently drink bottled water to escape the chlorine taste and the possible dangers of drinking tap water. Plus, bottled water is so convenient! You can buy it anywhere, it’s easy to carry around wherever you go, and it tastes good. You don’t have to worry about contamination. Many bottled waters even boast health benefits, like trace minerals in the water that help contribute to your wellness.
But bottled water isn’t great for the environment, because the plastic bottles cause pollution when they are produced and when they are thrown away. Every time someone throws a plastic bottle out and it doesn’t make it into a waste bin, it is negatively affecting our beautiful oceans and animal life.
If the environmental concerns aren’t enough to make you consider an alternative, then hopefully, the financial reasons will resonate with you: if you’re buying bottled water constantly for your family, the costs will add up over time. You’ll have to keep buying it constantly, and it can become a significant expense.
Thankfully, there’s another alternative to tap water and bottled water: at-home water filtration systems. With these systems, you can transform tap water into clean, healthy, trustworthy water that is sustainable over time.
With a water purifier, you’ll be able to easily get water from your own tap—but it will be safely filtered and free from all chlorine, heavy metals, bacteria, parasites viruses, carcinogens, particles, and other contaminants.
And unlike bottled water, a home water purifier is a long-term investment. You can purchase the purifier once and have clean, great-tasting water on demand without having to go buy more bottles.
The NanoSpring home water purifier sits beneath your counter and filters water with a safe and beneficial Nano Technology three-stage process. Not only does it work for tap water, but it purifies river water, well water, and rainwater!
