Drinking water is essential to keeping your body healthy. Staying hydrated rids the body of toxins, prevents disease, increases energy, and improves mood. We often take water for granted. It flows from our faucets in abundance and we do not think about where it comes from or what might be in it. But what is in your water? Test your water to find out!
Chlorines and Chloramines
Townships attempt to keep bacteria and other living organisms out of your water by using chlorines and chloramines. Consuming large amounts of these chemicals is unhealthy. Drinking high levels of chlorine is like drinking water from a swimming pool! Test your water to make sure it contains healthy levels of chlorines and chloramines!
Your water may also contain nitrates. Nitrates are residue from agricultural waste like manure. Nothing will stop you mid-sip faster than that fact! Unappealing to say the least! Living near a farm increases the likelihood that these nitrates will find their way into your water. Test your water to ensure you’re not drinking the runoff of your local farms!
Some water has a metallic taste. This is caused by high levels of iron. Aside from unpleasant taste, iron causes rust colored stains on fixtures and appliances. Keep your appliances clean and shining for longer with a water filter!
Calcium and Magnesium
Testing your water may reveal high levels of calcium and magnesium. Water with high levels of these minerals is considered hard water. Hard water causes dry skin and hair and may result in build-up in your plumbing and appliances. This can be fixed with a water softening system! A water softening system reduces the levels of calcium and magnesium in your water and creates healthier and smoother water!
