5 Easy Ways To Improve Your Drinking Water

There are so many ways to maximize the quality of the water you drink every day. It’s recommended that adults drink at least half of your body weight in ounces of water every day. In other words, if your weight is 150 lbs, you should be drinking at least 75 ounces of water each day. Having crystal-clear drinking water will make hitting your daily intake requirement easier. There’s a wide variety of ways to enhance the overall quality and nutritional value of your water, through different systems and natural additives.

1. Iron Filtration System

Water is a natural solvent, absorbing a little bit of everything it touches, resulting in our drinking water containing a variety of minerals and contaminants. An iron removal system can help improve the overall quality of your drinking water, for years to come. The improved taste alone can be completely worth it!

An iron filtration system can help remove and/or reduce the presence of:

  • Iron
  • Sediment
  • Rust
  • Stains
  • Bad taste and Odour

2. Chlorine Filtration system

In order to provide safe drinking water to hundreds of thousands of households, municipalities must treat our drinking water with chlorine. Unfortunately, once municipal water reaches our homes, this chemical and its by-products can have an adverse effect of our water. A chlorine filtration system treats every drop of water in your home to reduce chlorine, chloramines and their harmful by-products.

Chlorine filtration system can help remove and/or reduce the presence of:

  • Chlorine
  • Chloramines
  • THMs
  • Pesticides
  • TCEs
  • Herbicides
  • Bad taste and Odour

3. Ultraviolet Water Disinfection System

An Ultraviolet system uses UV light to inactivate microorganisms found in water, without adding any chemicals to your water, drastically improving the quality of your water. While UV Systems were originally designed for surface water and well-water applications, they can easily be adapted to any household.

An Ultraviolet system can help remove and/or reduce the presence of:

  • E-coli
  • Coliform
  • Protozoa

4. Reverse Osmosis System

Reverse Osmosis System can be a great solution for any home or business. An RO system uses a series of membranes to purify water by reducing harmful chemicals and other contaminants, leaving your family with clean, fresh drinking water. A Reverse Osmosis system delivers high quality, filtered drinking water that is conveniently stored in a sealed tank for whenever your family needs it.

A Reverse Osmosis System can help remove and/or reduce the presence of:
