I was sent an Aquasana Live Healthy countertop water filter as a gift in exchange for sharing. No other form of compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
Drinking healthy water is so important. The human body contains between 55-75 percent water. Usually the water that gets pumped into your home has gone through many purification processes. Just because it goes through some purification before you turn on the tap does not mean that it has had all of the harmful substances removed.
City water is usually purified with chlorine. We all know that chlorine is not necessarily the healthiest thing to ingest. Now of course without the water being chlorinated millions of people could potentially die from things like salmonella, cholera, or other devastating infections. Harmful substances such as e-coli are still found in tap water because the chlorine does not always kill everything. Just relying on the chlorine purification system does not guarantee you will have clean safe water.
A tap water filter at the point of use can help to eliminate all of the unhealthy micro-organisms and trace amounts of chlorine, pesticides, lead, rust, or even arsenic. As a side note to this post I would also recommend finding a good shower and bath water filter (Aquasana does carry these). More chlorine than you even know is coming out of your bathroom and being directly absorbed into the skin or even inhaled.
The Aquasana Countertop Water Filter is a good choice for your water filtration. This double filter model will remove up to 97% of chlorine and chloramines. It also filters lead, mercury, reduces heavy metals, herbicides, pesticides, and industrial solvents. It reduces over three times more contaminants than your regular pitcher type filter. Also, Aquasana filters and systems let you be more eco-friendly.
There are many models that are non-invasive with easy installation and affordable filter replacements. For just around 10 cents per gallon you can have clean, safe, great tasting water at your fingertips from Aquasana.
