Why does your city water need to be filtered?
Approximately 85% of the U.S. population receives its water from community water systems. A typical American uses 80-100 gallons of water every day. If that sounds like a lot, consider that the total includes not just drinking water, but also the water used for washing – showers, hands, dishes, clothing – watering lawns, and waste disposal.
Although community water systems are required to meet the standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the authority of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), these standards may not filter out enough to prevent health side effects including skin, hair and responsiveness to medications OR prevent build-up and degradation of water-related appliances including water heaters, dishwashers and washing machines. Not to mention, the network of pipes and pumps are aging and degrading which can affect the water quality before reaching the tap.
