5 Reasons Why You Need Filtered Water

Drinking filtered water, Singapore

Water from different sources

As the saying goes " same same but different", that would also best describe water. There are various ways to get water from, such as drinking directly from the tap, from a filtered water dispenser or bottled waters from convenience stores. Each of them is notably distinct with unique properties, hence may have a differing outcome on your health.
Filtration eliminates unfavourable elements and particles in water, ensuring that the water is safe and healthy for consumption. We have included below the 5 reasons why drinking filtered water is good for our health.

Chlorine, ammonia, and sodium silicofluoride are added to treat our water in Singapore before they flow through the pipes in our homes. Chlorine is a chemical element which is highly reactive. Therefore, it reacts instantly with micro-organic compounds often develop in water to form Trihalomethanes (THMs). THMs usually intensify the production of free radicals in the body and is deemed as highly carcinogenic.

Hence, it is harmful to our body to take in a large amount of chlorine. A reliable carbon filter in your home water dispenser will be essential to lessen the chlorine and other negatively charged particles from your water by 99%. Even after the water may have undergone treatment before it flows out from our tap, it still has to travel a distance before it reaches us. It could be flowing through rusty and dirty pipes, collecting dirt, soil, and debris along the way. We might not be able to see this dirt and debris with our naked eye, but take a look at what our Tomal’s sediment filter cartridge picked up after a week of installation. Dirt, soil, debris, and other sediments as small as 0.5 microns. Thus, you know, our tap water is not as pure and clean as people may think they are.

How to prevent clothes from smelling bad?

Protects the body from diseases

Besides chemicals and dirt, water is also a good candidate for micro-organisms such as bacteria to multiply. Have you ever experienced wearing clothes that have not been dried properly? The bad odour they carry, that can last the whole day with you. That funky smell comes from bacteria interaction with water.

Depending on the water filter system, there are systems which have an ultra-fine membrane to remove toxins that cannot be seen by the naked eye. Examples of these are colloids, bacteria, viruses, parasites protozoa, pyrogens, and even pesticides and herbicides. This thus protects our body from diseases that might be caused by these bacteria. Now you know, our tap water is not as clean as you think.

Contain Essential Minerals 

Water does contain good essential minerals for our health such as zinc, calcium, and magnesium. A good water filtration system retains these minerals while filtering out the bad ones from the water.
