The Difference Between a Standard and Quality Water System

bad brita

Have you ever thought about the difference between a Brita/refrigerator filtration system and an under-the sink alkaline/whole house water filtration system? Believe it or not, there is a huge difference. Most Brita systems/refrigerator water systems have carbon filters that take out chlorine and some fluoride, but do not remove bacteria from local city water. However, most under-the-sink alkaline systems and whole house water filtration systems do remove bacteria as well as arsenals, heavy leads, and chlorine. These systems are good for skin and hair because the water is cleaned to a degree where no harmful contaminants are absorbed into your skin. After 15 minutes in a shower with regular tap water, your body absorbs 63% of everything in the water. If there are microorganisms, heavy metals, and contaminants, your body is taking in all of those harmful agents.

Water filtration systems aren’t just a product with a one-time use, they’re products that can be used every day and increase your lifestyle and health overall. Because filtration companies are selling a product that enhances people’s lives, they feel good about their products, and you should too.

“Remember, [they] are not selling a water system; [they’re] selling health and wellness, providing a safety net, making the world a cleaner place, preventing waste, preparing children for a brighter future, and saving consumers from wasting money. With a water system, people will feel better, they will look better, and they will live in a better environment.”

How do water filtration system companies create value that encourages people to buy their systems? There are two ways; using advertisement methods or working by referral. Many high-quality water filtration companies like Filtercon Technologies don’t have time to waste on advertisement, so we work through referral and targeting specific groups of people. New homeowners are the top response group for filtration companies like ours because, well, they’re in a new place and need a system to filter the water in their new home. By targeting homeowners that are knowledgeable about water health and are passionate about living healthy lives, quality water filtration companies can create connections with clients and give them the most for their money. Filtercon Technologies uses this method so that our quality water filters can reach these specific groups of people.

What Is Your Filtered Water Dispenser Doing For YOU?

Many cities, including San Diego, treat their water to kill off harmful bacteria and parasites. What many people don’t know is that impurities such as copper, aluminum, pesticides, and other toxins can still remain in the water even after being treated. Along with these impurities, city water usually doesn’t taste very good. The reason is because chemicals such as chlorine used during the water treatment process attempt to remedy these problems, but give the water an unpleasant taste. For this reason, many people purchase filtered water dispensers to further purify their water. Filtering dispensers help in eliminating these impurities and can also make the water taste better.

Water Dispenser
Research shows that a filtered water dispenser will save you roughly $600 a year if you were to contin-ually buy 16-ounce water bottles. Furthermore, some people like to bottle their own filtered water. By doing so, they reduce plastic waste and save money. Talk about a win-win situation!

Water dispensers come in different shapes and sizes. Some conveniently fit right into your refrigerator door, others come with a bigger container for larger quantities of water.

After reading all of this information, you might want to rush out and buy yourself a filtering water dispenser. Before you do that, let’s look at the advantages and disadvantages…

Advantages

  • No plumbing is required
  • Most are easily stored in a refrigerator and are usually portable
  • With so many different types on the market, you can choose one that suits your needs and budget
  • Cleanup is very simple. The only thing you should have to do is replace the dispenser’s filter
  • User-friendly. Most people understand how to use dispensers without a manual or guidebook

Disadvantages:

  • Although perceived as safe, try to keep them away from dust. They can easily become a breeding ground for diseases
  • Cost. The water dispenser itself does not cost much, but it requires a new filter after so many uses. This extra expense adds up, especially during the summer when people are drinking more water
  • Check the quality of the plastic before you make the purchase. If it is made of harmful plastics (like BPA), you could be drinking chemicals just from the dispenser itself rather than the water. Read our article on: BPA Free Water Bottles

The best way to find drinking water from a trustworthy source is to invest in a whole house water filtration system.  These systems filter water throughout your entire home and eliminate 90% of harmful chemicals. They reach your faucets, your showers, and your hoses outside so that everywhere you go in your home, you’re getting clean, pure water. Without the added chemicals in your shower water, your skin and hair will start to feel more clean and healthy. The long term effects on your health alone are worth the investment in one of these systems.
