3 myths about water treatment specialists you need to know about

August 26, 2020

When you live in a country like the United States, it’s easy to take clean drinking water for granted. Most people have had no issues getting access to it for all of their lives.

But if and when your water system breaks down, you’ll want to have some knowledge about how it works so you can address your issues properly. Unfortunately, we’ve seen a lot of misinformation surrounding water treatment that could potentially impact your safety.

Here are three misconceptions most people have about water treatment specialists, and the truth behind these myths.

1. Water filtration and purification refer to the same thing

Contrary to popular belief, these two are totally different processes. Water filtration pulls some impurities, like sand or microscopic organisms, from your drinking water. However, they don’t get rid of everything. This means that you may still get sick from drinking filtered water.

That’s where water purification comes in. This process gets rid of all impurities — including sand, dirt, viruses, chemicals, and more — in your water system, so you can be completely confident that the water you’re drinking is safe and sanitary.

In most cases, you’ll need both to ensure the safety of the water you and your family drink.

2. Store-bought water filtration systems are good enough, so I don’t need anything else

Store-bought water filters can lure you into a false sense of security, because you think that your filtered water is 100% safe to drink. However, these systems are designed mainly to remove any odors in your water and improve the taste. They don’t actually improve the quality of the water itself.

So if you have microorganisms or chemicals in your water, they don’t remove any of them. This means that your water is still unsafe to drink. To get rid of most of these impurities, you’ll need to incorporate a water purification system as well.

3. Water purifiers are too expensive

Even the term “water purification system” sounds expensive. But it’s actually not.

In fact, we offer a reverse osmosis subscription program where you only pay $29.99 a month (that’s less than a dollar a day) for clean drinking water every month — with none of the hassle of setup or maintenance. Why? Well, we take care of all of that for you.

Sounds too good to be true? It’s not. Give us a call today and see for yourself!
