What's in our tap water?

All of us have the ability to be agents of change for a better way or living, for ourselves and those around us – family, friends, workmates and guests.

Most municipal water authorities do a good job of delivering tap water that is free of dangerous germs. Yet they use chlorine that is a deadly poison in huge amounts. And germs are not the only problem.

Lots of other nasty stuff gets into our drinking and washing water during its journey from the water works to our taps. Increased pollution from municipal and industrial waste and the leeching or fertilizers and pesticides in agriculture has already limited the amount of fresh water available to humans by two-thirds, according to the World Health Organization.

If you live in a big city, the chance is that the water pipes delivering your water are several decades old. In America, as many as 30 percent of those pipes are between 40 – 80 years old, while in London over 44 per cent of pipes are over 100 years old. The U.S. Consumer Reports organisation says that ‘dangerous contaminants such as lead, chloroform, arsenic, nitrate, radon and E.Coli bacteria are common in tap water’.

Unlike tabletop filter systems that tend to only tackle the problems that impact taste, the water-purification solutions offered by Love Pure Water are designed to be super efficient at removing contaminants from fluoride to pesticides and from chemicals to toxic metals like lead.
