To say that “Water is Life” is an understatement. Humans need water to survive. In fact, we can live on water alone, without food, rather than on food alone and without water. These days however, pollution has caused contamination of our water supplies. Unfiltered running water is not only unsafe to drink, it can even cause irritation to sensitive skin.
Thankfully, water filters are a dime a dozen in the market. There are too many that you eventually get confused on which one to pick! To help you understand water filters better, here’s a quick rundown on the what’s and the how’s of it all.
Water filters come in many forms. There are point-of-use filters that you typically install on faucets and showers. There are also portable water filters. These are very useful to hikers, people experiencing humanitarian emergencies and the military. Portable filters are lightweight and convenient to carry. Some even come in the simple form of a straw. These filters however should not be confused with disinfectant tablets that can actually kill dangerous viruses and bacteria in the water. The most that these filters can do is to remove contaminants like silt and sediment.
Another term that is used to refer to whole house water filtration is water polishing. It removes certain concentrations of dissolved contaminants and removes microscopic particles from the water.
