IDENTIFYING PROBLEM WATER
FACTS ABOUT DRINKING WATER
Over 70% of your body is made up of water.
Consider tap water. Traditional disinfecting methods performed at the water treatment plant can leave behind contaminants that make it into tap water. These can include chemicals, gases, bacteria, metallic elements, and more.
HIDDEN COSTS OF WATER
Scale build-up inside a water heater increases water heating costs in two ways. First, it reduces the space available in the water heater so less hot water is produced. Second, the scale forms an insulation barrier, increasing the energy used to heat the water.
Mineral impurities in tap water wear out water-using appliances, equipment, pipes and water heaters, causing additional maintenance or replacement costs.
Cleaning costs you money as well as time. When your tap water leaves a residue, the costs keep adding up when you have spots on glasses and cutlery, soap scum on shower doors, rings in the toilet bowl, and water marks on sinks and faucets.
Chlorine in your tap water can irritate your skin and eyes, as well as damage your hair, thereby costing you more money for lotions, moisturizers and conditioners. Chlorine can also interact with Organics in the water to create Trihalomethanes (THMs).
