Filter Water Instead of Boiling Starting Today
Boiling water is a common method of purifying it, even today. Many people still believe it is the best way to make sure that their drinking water is free of bacteria and other contaminants. But is it? Boiling water in order to purify, has many disadvantages. You should filter water instead of boiling, as it is a far better option. Here’s why:
Disadvantages of Boiling for Purification
Water brought to a boil in order to disinfect it kills many of the microorganisms in tap water that have the potential to cause illness. However, water has to be boiled for at least a minute to be effective and, even then, it won’t necessarily kill all of the bacteria.
Boiling can only remove solids and bacteria and won’t remove other contaminants. In fact, boiling only serves to concentrate things like lead, nitrates and pesticides due to the reduction in water volume. Chlorine is another substance that can’t be removed by boiling water.
Practically speaking, water that evaporates during boiling is automatically lost, with the contaminated water vapour filling the atmosphere in your home. As well, for most families, boiling all of the drinking water is time-consuming and inconvenient.
Why Filtering Water Works Best
Seychelle’s pH2O PUREWATER filter cleans and naturally alkalizes your drinking water to support your health and your body’s delicate pH balance. It creates pure, great-tasting water, removes harmful contaminants, protects beneficial trace minerals and is a perfect way to filter water instead of boiling. Filtration reduces and removes up to 99.99% of the harmful organic and inorganic contaminants commonly found in tap water.
Potential health benefits include:
- Increases energy
- Restores pH balance
- Neutralizes free radicals
- Slows the aging process
- Lowers blood pressure
- Helps to maintain a healthy body weight
- Aids in digestion
The pH2O filter guarantees cleaner, healthier water by removing up to 99.99% of the 90-plus known tap water contaminants. It also raises the pH to 8-9.5pH. Additionally, there is no contaminated water vapour to breathe in, as it happens when boiling water to purify it.
It’s clear that a water filtering system is superior to boiling, when it comes to clean and pure drinking water. Using a water pitcher filtering system is convenient and easy to use. It can be used to purify well water, as well as municipally treated water, to ensure clean, healthy drinking water.
