The Importance of Water Filtration

Posted on

Most of us are well aware of the health benefits of drinking more water. Improving your consumption of water results in; increased energy and concentration, help with weight loss, the removal of toxins from the body, the delivery of vital nutrients to cells, and help in eliminating headaches. These are just some of the many rewards for increased hydration.

However, although ordinary water will achieve all of this, water straight from the tap also contains many contaminants which can be harmful to the body. Although the quality of UK tap water is generally good compared to some other countries, impurities in our tap water include, lead, chlorine, fluoride, and bacteria such as E Coli.

To avoid the harmful effects of these contaminants, water filters have been designed to filter out these nasties leaving you with fresh pure water. So now for the science bit - just how does it work?

Activated carbon filters such as our 1 micron active carbon water cooler filter, use activated carbon to filter out toxins. They work by absorbing organic and chemical based impurities to remove and reduce the health dangers posed by these contaminants. They also reduce odours and bad tastes which affect the quality of the water. For added peace of mind, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms can be managed with the use of UV water filters, which work by shining UV light through water to attack the DNA of microorganisms, killing them to eliminate the chance of infection. So you can enjoy all the benefits of pure uncontaminated drinking water without concern for your health.
