Just like a healthy, balanced diet, adequate water intake is important to our body’s performance. Your body loses fluid continually due to evaporation, exercise, climate changes, and aging. Since your body is composed of around 60 percent water, replenishing that fluid is vital to body system health. Healthy hydration is good for your skin, muscles, organ function, and brain.
Unfortunately, Southeast Minnesota tap water is particularly hard; it contains high levels of iron and calcium. In addition, some water may contain higher-than-healthy levels of arsenic, nitrates, manganese, bacteria, and hydrogen sulfide. In some locations, tap water may even be contaminated with pharmaceuticals. The best way to ensure that your family is drinking healthy water is by installing a whole-house water treatment system, purification system, or water softener. Water treatment improves the taste and quality of your water, and provides the following benefits:
- Quality water taste, without odor
- Affordability (cheaper than bottled water)
- Protection against contaminants, toxins, pharmaceuticals & more
- Improved health & skin condition
- Shinier, softer hair
- Fewer mineral deposits on fixtures & dishes
What About Bottled Water?
Did you know that it takes a water bottle around 450 years to degrade in a landfill? At a rate of 60 million U.S. bottles per day, this is a major environmental concern. But bottled water is not only dangerous to the environment. Studies show that many brands of bottled water are no more pure than tap water, and that the plastic may leach chemicals into the water over time or with exposure to heat. Do not count on bottled water for healthy drinking.
