Drinking Water Options?
By Pierre Mouchette | Real Property Experts LLC
With so many options available, have you made the right decision when it comes to selecting your drinking water? That is bottled, filtered, straight from the tap, or a combination of all? This ARTICLE may help you in that resolve!
What is filtered water?
Water can be filtered using a physical barrier. This methodology can employ a biological or chemical process that will remove or lower the amount of impurities embedded within the element. Each process is effective in removing ‘certain types’ of impurities that affect the quality, taste and drinkability of water.
Currently the most popular method for filtering household water is activated carbon filtering, which involves pushing water through a physical & chemical carbon barrier that acts like a magnet trapping impurities into the carbon.

Is bottled water safe?
Even though the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sets standards for bottled water, brands use a wide range of treatment methods and water sources. It’s important to read labels carefully and investigate treatment processes if you have any safety concerns about the bottled water that you may drink. Furthermore, some studies have found that 90-percent of bottled water contained microplastics.
In addition to reducing plastic waste from our environment, microplastics are another compelling reason to go bottled-water-free.
