https://www.revelationhealth.com/Water-Filtration-02/ The best water system for home filtration purification is not water dispenser filtration. Chemicals drinking water problems include fluoride and pharmaceuticals that require special treatment. The watts water filtration system and other name brands do not due it. We found a company that does it all at a fraction of the cost for what you receive in clean pure water. Call Kyle 414-241-8808 at Dime Water and mention this video for a 10% discount : )…
Everything about water filtration systems
Water filtration and water filters are the latest hot topic today, for very good reasons. Increasingly more people are drinking bottled water, for health issues and for the taste. Gossip magazines have candied shoots of the hottest stars doing whatever, but one thing I’ve noticed lately about 90% of the pictures also show a bottle of water. This doesn’t surprise me plain tap water just doesn’t taste the same. Recently, I added up the cost of the bottle water I had purchased for my family of four. The amount was astounding to the point, that I have now installed a home water filter system.
Water filters are relatively inexpensive and improve the overall taste of your tap water as well as the smell, and appearance. Many filters will also remove some harmful chemicals found in your drinking water. Currently there isn’t a better way of ensuring your drinking water and cooking water is as healthy as possible for you and your family. Compare a glass of bottled water to a glass of tap water. Look at the color, clarity and then smell both of them. Chances are, your tap water will be cloudy, and may smell of bleach.
There are numerous types of water filtration systems on the market, so take the time and read the product information so that you will purchase the type of filter for your needs. Depending on the type of water filter you choose to install, they can be extremely effective in removing specific substances. Some filters are more specific than others are and more effective.
The filter I have installed is designed especially to remove or lead. Other filters will remove chlorine. Neither of these two filters will remove microorganisms, which require a special filter. The chlorine filter and the filter to remove lead are intended for use with water that has already been tested and proven safe. Before purchasing a filtration system have an evaluation of your water done, this will tell you just what is in your water supply. You can purchase a simply water test kit from your local plumbing supply company and test your water yourself, or contact your city hall and request a copy of your town’s annual water report.

This video shows how to make and use the home made Berkey type water filtration system. This one is made for less than in parts and you will see that it will turn the nastiest of Oklahoma water in to clean SAFE drinking water in a reasonable amount of time. This system is NOT super fast (yet…give me time) but it will clean 5 gallons of drinking water in about 24 hours (Website says 14 per day) . I believe that I may have figured out how to speed that up to 5 gallons in an hour or so, stop back and see it I make that work. This DOES NOT make water drinkable without boiling or adding chlorine or bleach, however in a pinch it would beat drinking it straight out of the river. This works GREAT and is SOOO much cheaper than the store bought systems that do the same thing.

In my video “5 easy ways to lose weight” I asked you if I should make a video on the amazing benefits of drinking water.
You responded with yes.
Water is and probably always will be the best drink for hydration.

In this list we’ll be showing you 5 amazing benefits of drinking water.

5) It Cleans You From The Inside
We all know water is great for cleaning us from the outside but it has a similar effect on the inside too.
Keeping hydrated helps flush out toxins in the body that can build up and make you feel and run less efficiently.
Dehydration can bring on headaches, fatigue, constipation and can even make your body odor smell more potent.
It’s often said you should drink about 8 cups of water a day.
While that is perfectly fine and nothing wrong with it, it’s not a tailored solution.
Our body often mistake thirst for hunger.
Sure we still feel thirsty but that’s usually when we’re getting quite dehydrated.
Getting in a habit of drinking water regularly, helps you recognize thirst signals and you’ll begin to notice that you feel more thirsty more often.
4) It can protect against some types of cancer
I know what you’re thinking, another one of these miracle cancer cures, but that’s not what is being said.
Water itself cannot cure cancer, but it can help prevent certain type of cancer.
For example a bulletproof vest can help prevent you from being shot, but if you’ve already been shot, there’s not much it can do for you.
Research has shown that the greater the fluid intake, the lower the incidence of bladder cancer, with more significant results when the fluid is water.
One reason is that urinating more frequently prevents the buildup of bladder carcinogens.
However what’s important is that prevention is always easier than curing.
There is no harm in keeping hydrated, it is a documented fact that staying …

Ask This Old House plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey explains the many options available for filtering drinking water. (See below for a shopping list and steps.)

Shopping List for How to Choose a Water Filter:
– Pitcher-style water filter
– Faucet-mounted water filter
– Under-sink water filter
– Under-sink reverse-osmosis water filter
– Whole-house water filter
– Sediment filter
Steps for How to Choose a Water Filter:
1. The simplest way to filter tap water is with a pitcher-style water filter, which has a granulated carbon filter that improves taste and odor, and removes some chlorine and sediment.
2. Faucet-mounted filters have a switch that diverts tap water through a granulated carbon filter. Turn on the switch for filtered drinking water; flip it off when washing dishes.
3. For greater water filtration convenience and capacity, install an under-sink, dual-filter system that has its own gooseneck faucet.
4. For optimum point-of-use filtration, consider a reverse-osmosis system. Water passes through a series of three filters, resulting in extremely clean, pure drinking water.
5. Whole-house water filters are installed near the water main and are ideal for delivering clean, filtered water to every faucet throughout the entire house.
6. There are a variety of filters available to remove a wide range of impurities.
7. Sediment filters contain a stainless-steel pre-screen filter and back-flush system that automatically cleans the filter.
8. For the highest level of water filtration, first have your tap water tested, then call in a water-treatment specialist to install a whole-house filtration system designed specifically to treat your water.
