An Insight into Contemporary Water Purifying Devices

Water is essential to our lives and well-being.  If you looking for the best ways to bring premium water into your home, here are some options for water purifying devices from Lillian Connors.

Whether there’s a genuine need for installing a water purification system at your home depends on you – the homeowner. If you don’t trust official reports related to water quality or believe that the water coming out of the tap is not drinkable, the most logical solution is to install a personal water treatment system. Fortunately, there are many options to consider.

Point-of-entry

First of all, you need to decide if you want to install the so-called POE (point-of-entry) or the POU (point-of-use) system. The former refers to the system which filters all the water that enters the household or the place of residence. Typically, the installation is done after the water meter, or the water tank in case of well water. For example, if you wish to install a water softener to tackle the problems with hard water, that would be a POE system.

Point-of-use

On the other hand, you may opt for a system (in some cases the word is used rather loosely) that purifies water at the point of consumption. These solutions include a personal bottle with a built-in filter, pitchers and filters attached to the standard kitchen faucet. These are all quite convenient devices, but have a rather limited capacity. There are also fridge filters, which treat ice and water from the fridge, as well as plumbed-in systems, which can be designed in different ways, depending on what points of consumption are envisaged to feature purified water.

Standards

Naturally, every system relies on maintaining a standard and adhering to some rules and regulations. From filtration and water softening to UV disinfection and reverse osmosis (RO), there are some basic principles behind the technology, as well as guidelines for maintenance.
Water filters trap or dissolve or absorb contaminants, while softeners purify water by making it less hard, i.e. by reducing calcium and magnesium levels. A UV system uses light to disinfect water and reduce the presence of bacteria which do not cause disease, while a RO system is based on reversing the natural flow of water, which goes through a more concentrated to a more dilute solution. In doing so, it passes a semi-permeable membrane, which is usually accompanied by a reverse osmosis water filter with cartridges.

Maintenance

Probably the most important segment in operating a water purification system at home. Every device or system comes with a manual containing the manufacturer’s guidelines. To maximize the efficiency and be sure that you always have healthy water at your disposal, make sure you follow the instructions to the letter, whether they refer to replacing cartridges and membranes or any other aspect of the system’s operation.

Benefits

The fact that there’s less chorine and bacteria in purified water means it tastes and smells better. Also, it’s much cheaper in the long run to have a water purification system installed than to buy bottled water. Last by not least, purified water used for drinking and cooking greatly improves your family’s health and it plays a particularly important role when it comes to children and their immune systems.

Follow your heart… or your brain, it makes no difference


In conclusion, it’s enough to think that, according to this source, more than a half of your body is water and that the percentage of water in our heart and lungs is the same – 73. Now, all you have to do, is ask yourself whether you think it would be a good idea to ensure that you get the premium quality of the main component of your body, because it quite easy to do so.
