Pure water is one of our most vital energy sources. It is said that an average person can only live 3-5 days without any water. According to a recent study, 24% of people in the U.S. don’t drink any plain water each day and the average person drinks less than one-half of the recommended amount. Dehydration is an epidemic! Ideally, an average adult needs to drink three quarts of water throughout the day, not less than one quart! Are you drinking enough water? Maybe you are suffering, in one way or another, from not drinking enough water.
“On any given day, 76 percent of individuals age 2 years and over in the U.S. drink some plain water. The average daily intake is 3.9 cups per individual.”1
Are you Suffering from Dehydration?
“Even mild dehydration can alter a person’s mood, energy level, and ability to think clearly, according to two studies recently conducted at the University of Connecticut’s Human Performance Laboratory.”2
A few symptoms of mild dehydration are: dry lips, dry mouth, sticky or lack of saliva, and dry skin. Symptoms of dehydration include but are not limited to: headache, constipation, low urine output, dizziness, confusion, and fever.
Your Water may be Doing you Harm?
Besides not drinking enough water, there are hazards in drinking unfiltered water. The following quote is from a recent government publication.
“Drinking water sources may contain a variety of contaminants that, at elevated levels, have been associated with increased risk of a range of diseases in children, including acute diseases such as gastrointestinal illness, developmental effects such as learning disorders, endocrine disruption, and cancer. Because children tend to take in more water relative to their body weight than adults do, children are likely to have higher exposure to drinking water contaminants.”3
Each person must be responsible for the safety of their drinking water. The recent Flint, Michigan water crisis is a prime example of this. If you don’t own a water filter, it is recommended to have your water tested annually by a certified laboratory. Test for bacteria, heavy metals, nitrates, pesticides, chlorine, and other hazardous chemicals. It is nearly impossible to find a pure water supply anywhere. To avoid the annual expense of testing your water, simply be safe and install a high quality water filter. Most families filter at least their drinking and cooking water. Some families may need to invest in a whole house water filter, depending on the chemicals in their area water supply, thus ensuring that bathing water is also filtered.
“A Reuters examination of lead testing results across the country found almost 3,000 areas with poisoning rates far higher than in the tainted Michigan city. Yet many of these lead hotspots are receiving little attention or funding.”4
Another Value of Purified Water
Water stores information which impacts all tissues and cells. When fluids of the body are clean, this aids in proper cellular communication. Conversely, when the fluids in the body are contaminated, it disrupts cellular communication. See the post, “Energy of Words” for more information why clean water and good thoughts are important for proper bodily functions.
Not all Filters are Created Equal
Drink plenty of water, but don’t drink unfiltered water. Granulated charcoal filters are not sufficient because water follows the path of least resistance and does not pass through the charcoal to be adequately filtered. A solid carbon block water filtration system tests to be the best. With a solid carbon block, you are ensured that all water going through the system has been completely filtered.
Water naturally holds a neutral pH of 7 after removing acidic contaminants. So, there is no need to buy expensive alkalinizing units. Some methods (like reverse osmosis and distillation) remove valuable minerals. In the long run this will contribute to an imbalance in your body chemistry. Water filters should not reduce necessary minerals provided by water that our bodies need.
I have spent a long time reviewing and researching water filters, balancing out the need to remove harmful chemicals while retaining the minerals our bodies need. See the image of the carbon block cut in half. You’ll be amazed at the performance of the carbon block with filter comparisons. This filter is changed every 6-12 months depending on the toxicity level of the water and how often you use it. We use the Multipure under sink filter and have found it to be an excellent option compared to other brands with lower quality.
Learn more about different filters and how they compare to one another by reading this outline of Filter Comparisons. Multipure’s solid carbon block filters are NSF-certified to reduce the widest array of contaminants that can affect both the taste and the healthfulness of your water. Read more about the chemicals that need to be purified out of water in the post, “Endocrine Disruptor Chemical Safety.”
Take a look at this certified performance data information to verify the removal of hazardous chemicals. Multipure’s drinking water systems, the Aquaversa, Aquaperform and Aquadome have been tested according to NSF/ANSI Standard 53 for the reduction of the outlined substances. Drinking water safety is critical in preventing immune disorders. Water around the world is highly polluted.
Cost Savings is a large factor in buying a water filter system instead of buying bottled water. This is a savings comparison: 750 gallons bottled water, on average costs $2,752.50 per year, compared to 750 gallons Multipure water for only $69.95. Besides the money savings, having a filter system saves you the extra toxic load of chemicals from plastic stored containers. Take a look at these facts, what terrific savings!
The Aquadome features a plastic housing and is designed for countertop use only. It connects directly to the sink faucet with an included hose and diverter valve (dual-hose design) that allows you to select filtered or unfiltered water. The Aquadome is intended as an easily-connected countertop-only drinking water system for those that do not require a below sink installation option.
The Aquaperform features a stainless steel housing and is designed for additional contaminant reduction performance, adding Arsenic V to its list of filtered contaminants. This model includes a stand-alone chrome faucet (shown on the right) and a below sink installation kit, allowing it to be attached to a cabinet wall below the sink with an included mounting bracket. The faucet requires a 0.5” hole available in the countertop or sink for installation. The below sink Aquaperform connects to the cold water line with an included Adapta Valve. The below sink Aquaperform is intended for a more permanent installation, although it can be removed and converted for countertop use with additional parts. An optional acrylic base is available separately.
