About Your Drinking Water

WHAT ARE YOU DRINKING?


  • Over 70% of your body is made up of water.
  • Water is the essential element in maintaining virtually every system in your body. Your brain, muscles, bones and kidneys cannot function without it.
  • Consider tap water. Traditional disinfecting methods performed at the water treatment plant can leave behind contaminants that make it into tap water. These can include chemicals, gases, bacteria, metallic elements, and more.
  • Many try to combat tap water contamination with bottled water, which then brings its another set of concerns.
  • Bottled water produces up to 1.5 million tons of plastic waste per year. Further, according to Food and Water Watch, that plastic requires up to 47 million gallons of oil per year to produce.
  • According to National Geographic News, Americans spent $21.7 billion on bottled water in 2011. How much of that total was from your family? Water costs about three times more than gasoline when it comes in a plastic bottle.

HIDDEN COSTS OF WATER

 

  • Mineral impurities in tap water wear out water-using appliances, equipment, pipes and water heaters, causing additional maintenance or replacement costs.
  • Scale build-up inside a water heater increases water heating costs in two ways. First, it reduces the space available in the water heater so less hot water is produced. Second, the scale forms an insulation barrier, increasing the energy used to heat the water.
  • Tap water leaves a harsh soap curd in fabric that is abrasive like sandpaper and damages clothing, towels and other laundered materials.
  • Most water requires the use of excessive amounts of cleaning products containing harsh chemicals needed to breakdown the hardness and other minerals in the water before they begin cleaning.
  • Cleaning costs you money as well as time. When your tap water leaves a residue, the costs keep adding up when you have spots on glasses and cutlery, soap scum on shower doors, rings in the toilet bowl, and water marks on sinks and faucets.
  • Chlorine in your tap water can irritate your skin and eyes, as well as damage your hair, thereby costing you more money for lotions, moisturizers and conditioners. Chlorine can also interact with Organics in the water to create Trihalomethanes (THMs).
