We’ve always been told to drink 8 glasses of water a day. Many more Americans are picking up a glass of water instead of carbonated beverages. A 2016 Beverage Marketing study found water consumption grew by 120 percent between 2000 and 2015 while over the same period carbonated drinks fell by 16 percent.
Even with drinking more water, there are many choices in the kind of water you drink like tap, bottled, filtered, or natural spring. A choice many homeowners are choosing today is reverse osmosis water. These systems are highly rated and are able to remove many contaminates to acceptable levels for drinking water standards. We share with you some of the benefits of reverse osmosis drinking water.
#1 Contaminant Removal
The public has become more aware of contaminants in water due to the lead water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Many reverse osmosis systems are tested and certified to remove harmful contaminants such as lead, arsenic, copper, radium, and others.
#2 Environmental Impact
By using a reverse osmosis system, it helps eliminate the need to purchase bottled water creating less plastic waste in landfills. When plastic bottles are left in landfills they photodegrade by breaking down into smaller fragments over time with absorb toxins entering our waterways.
#3 Crystal Clear Ice Cubes
Since a reverse osmosis systems takes out what isn’t water, it leaves ice cubes crystal clear. Have you ever made ice cubes from hard water? They make a cloudy looking ice cube. Why is this? When water freezes, it freezes from the outside-in forcing impurities to the center of the ice cube. It is believed that hard water ice cubes will melt faster because of the impurities in the water.
#4 Removes Sodium
For those individuals on sodium-restricted diet, a Kinetico reverse osmosis system will remove, under certain conditions, 98 percent of the sodium in the water. By removing this amount of sodium in the water, it allows people with high blood pressure or liver or kidney disease be able to drink water.
