What Is the Importance of Water Filtration for Aurora and Surrounding Communities?
While many of us are lucky enough to be able to drink water that has been deemed safe for consumption, you still need to keep an eye on your water. Even if it’s been labelled safe, your water may still not be clean enough for your home or your health.
This is why you should turn to water filtration in Aurora. Filters can help manage any dirt, rust, sediment, taste or odor problems along with the following issues:
You might wonder why water filtration in Aurora would try to manage chlorine. Doesn’t it help kill bacteria and microbes that might otherwise make people sick?
It’s true that chlorine is added to water to make it safe. We even add it to help prevent spreading illnesses through drinking water, but you still shouldn’t drink the chlorine.
When chlorine is still present in your water, there is a slightly higher risk of having birth defects and urinary tract abnormalities. To avoid the risks of chlorine, you should filter it before you drink it. This is especially important if you live in an area that has fluctuating trihalomethanes (THMs).
As a public health measure, many cities make sure to add fluoride to their water. While harmless, you may not need the extra fluoride. Using water filtration can help remove it.
A contaminant that can show up in your tap water from old pipes, cost-saving measures and a disregard for public health, lead can be devastating to your health. You can protect you and your home from this contaminant effectively by using water filtration.
Once nitrogen combines with oxygen, it forms nitrate. This chemical is found naturally on the surface of groundwater and well water and can even be found in your drinking water. But after a certain level of nitrate, it stops being a benign, natural chemical and becomes dangerous, especially for pregnant women and any children.
Your level of nitrate can increase from the following issues:
If you happen to have a well and use it as a source for your water, you should get it tested once a year to make sure its level of nitrate has not increased to dangerous levels. If it has, you can remove nitrate through water filtration.
If you’re not careful, your water can end up carrying infectious diseases, such as Hepatitis A, norovirus and rotavirus. Typically, these diseases end up in your water from animal or human waste.
Generally, you are not likely to find such issues in your city’s drinking water as it is treated for viruses and routinely monitored. However, you can make sure that possibility is even lower by using water filtration, which adds an extra layer of protection against water contaminants. Please note, though, that to effectively destroy all pathogens in your water, you need to boil your water before use.
