Having high-quality water is important. About 57% of your body mass is water and it’s commonly recommended to drink half of your weight in ounces of water per day. Having a water filtration system installed will help ensure that you have clean, great-tasting water so that you can put the best water available into your body.
A water filtration system uses the filter much like a strainer. It will block objects and particles that are larger than the water molecules from flowing through its microscopic openings. The space between the openings is measured in microns and the smaller the micron rating, the smaller the particles the filter can catch. Some water filtration systems use multiple filters, one with a higher micron rating to catch larger particles and then a lower micron filter to catch the finer particles.
There are a variety of water filtration systems that can be installed in your home. Some can be installed onto an existing faucet and others will be installed as a separate faucet from your unfiltered water. Having the option to use unfiltered water for cleaning and washing can help preserve the filtered water for drinking and cooking, lengthening the life of the filter. There are also water filtration systems for your entire home. Just like it sounds, this will filter all of the water in your home and can be especially effective if you have harmful contaminants in your water supply.
Another benefit to a water filtration system is that it will improve the taste of your water, making it easier and more appealing to drink the recommended daily amount. Drinking the right amount of water will help your overall health by maintaining the proper balance of fluids in your body, energizing your muscles, regulating your bowels, and helping all of your organs function properly. You can also reduce your daily calorie intake significantly if you trade high-calorie beverages for great-tasting filtered water.
