While drinking a glass of water, we just see a clear liquid and not the numerous contaminants that may be lurking inside it. It’s only when we consume contaminated water and fall sick that we understand the importance of the purification of water.
Clean water is important for good health and well being. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, drinking up to 2-4 litres of water every day is essential for the body to function properly. Since water is so critical for our wellbeing, it becomes imperative that it is free of contaminants, metals and human and animal faeces.
Keeping the above points in mind, we have installed a water purifier for our home, which makes it possible to have a constant and unrestricted supply of clean, filtered water. In due course of time, we found numerous other benefits that a water purifier had to offer. Read about them here.
1. Protection from Harmful Waterborne Diseases
While travelling or eating out, we have often had to bear the consequences of drinking contaminated water from unhygienic sources. Thankfully, we have managed to get away with a mild attack of diarrhoea most of the time. However, there are many who fall prey to numerous other waterborne diseases like cholera, typhoid, dysentery etc. due to the consumption of contaminated or dirty water.
A water purifier installed at home is a great way to ensure that we have clean water at all times. Even while going out, we can carry a bottle of water from home (filtered by our purifier) to avoid putting any family member’s health at risk. This can also help us save money as we no longer have to purchase bottled water.
We learnt that regardless of whether you have an RO or a UV water purifier at home for purification of water, you can be confident that you are consuming pure water that is free of any harmful contaminants.
2. Removal of Heavy Metals From Drinking Water
What are your biggest concerns with keeping your washing machine clean?
Did you know that water that comes through our tap could contain heavy metals like lead, chlorine, mercury, arsenic etc.? During our research, we found that these heavy metals can cause adverse health issues, especially in children. Often these issues are a result of long term exposure as these heavy metals are not easily excreted from the body.
Exposure to heavy metals can affect our kidneys, digestive and immune system, cause cancer and respiratory problems, affect brain development in children and so on. We understood that RO water purifiers work very well in removing these heavy metals from water. With kids at home, we didn’t want to take any chances and were hence happy with our decision to purchase an RO water purifier for the purification of water at home.
3. Improvement in Metabolism & Digestion
After consuming clean and unadulterated water from a water purifier for a certain period of time, we couldn’t help but notice an improvement in our overall energy and activity levels. According to the World Health Organization, copper is needed for the proper functioning of many important enzyme systems in our body. It helps in improving digestion and has antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.
We’ve noticed that nowadays, many water purifiers come equipped with a technology that infuses the right amounts of copper into filtered water. This is one of the reasons why we opted for Pureit Copper Mineral Ro + UV MF 7 stage Wall Mountable Black & Copper 8 litres Water Purifier. On checking its product description on the website, we saw that it makes the water go through a seven-stage purification while imparting the water with the benefits of copper through its Copper Charge Technology. This smart technology ensures accurate dosing of copper in every glass of filtered water besides the purification of water. The best part is it has a dual dispensing system that allows us to switch between copper charged RO water and normal RO water.
4. Sweetening of Water
Have you ever been put off by the unpleasant taste or a strange odour emanating from your drinking water? At times, this even influences the taste and flavour of the food we cook. It didn’t take us much time to realize that it was the impurities present in our tap water that was causing this problem.
On testing our tap water, we came to know that there was a high concentration of TDS (total dissolved solids) like sodium, potassium etc. present in it. This was the main cause for our water to have an unpleasant taste and smell. We, therefore, decided to install an RO water purifier for our home for the purification of water as RO technology reduces TDS levels and softens the water, making it odour free and sweet to taste.
5. Use for Multiple Purposes
While purchasing a water purifier for our home gave us access to pure and safe drinking water at all times, it was also useful for other purposes. For instance, we started using purified water for washing our fruits and vegetables, for cooking, and making tea/coffee! When we used it for washing our hair, we were amazed to see the impact it had on its quality and texture. Often harsh chemicals, salts and metals in unfiltered water result in hair fall and dulling of skin. But, all this reduced drastically once we switched to using only purified water.
Buying a water purifier for your home is one of the best decisions you could make, especially when you consider the number of benefits it has to offer.
