Why should I use a Water Filtration System and what kind should I use?

February 9th, 2011 by admin

Lately my friends and family have been telling me that I should really be using some kind of water filtration system instead of drinking my water straight from the faucet. I was just wondering if there was any advantage health wise as to drinking filtered water over tap water.

Here is an answer to that question: There are also some more down below the video.


After taking a home water test and discovering all the toxins in your water supply you may want to protect the health of you and your family with a simple faucet water filter or an even more comprehensive whole-house filtration system. There are many available and many companies that install these systems. Price around and get the best deal!

Why Should I Test the Water in My Home ?

February 18th, 2010 by admin

We all need water for various purposes – for drinking, bathing, washing, irrigation etc. Amongst all, the drinking water should be safe and contamination free for a healthy living. There are various types of water tests which apply stringent criteria to ensure microbial, mineral and chemical safety of drinking water.

A microbial or bacteriological test indicates presence of any pathogenic or disease-causing bacteria in the drinking water. The EPA has designated testing of coliform bacteria as a standard for determination of safety of using water as these bacteria are simple to identify and are much abundant.

The drinking water test kit is made to check for presence of various coliform bacteria & nitrates. Such kits are quite accurate as all testing material – including sampling bottles are often sterilized to prevent external contamination of samples. A mineral analysis on the other hand provides an estimate of the extent of mineral impurities in the water.

Many industrial-waste chemicals can also contaminate a water supply and impair its usability and/or create a health hazard, for instance, petroleum products, industrial chemicals, agricultural pesticides, heavy metals like lead so and so forth. So, water must be checked periodically.You can order a home test kit here:
