Why Do I Need a Water Filter?

Never before has the need been greater for quality home water filtration.

“E.P.A. reports show that U.S. water supplies contain over 2,300 cancer causing chemicals…” — Ralph Nader Research Group

Water treatment facilities do no remove synthetic chemicals. Municipal water treatment today is essentially the same as it was over 100 years ago – the water is flown through sand beds to remove visible particles and then chlorine (and in some cities, chlorine + ammonia, called chloramine) is added as a disinfectant to kill bacteria. In contrast to popular belief, our water treatment facilities were not designed to take out synthetic organic chemicals and toxic heavy metals like lead.

In America’s highly industrialized society we use over 80,000 toxic chemicals every day, and over 1,000 new chemicals are being developed every year. As we use more synthetic chemicals, the levels in our water supplies increase proportionately. We are learning the hard way that all of the chemicals we use will ultimately show up in the water we drink.

In-home water purification is the most effective, by far the most convenient and most economical means of providing clean, healthy water for you and your family.  Most quality home water purification products can provide water far superior to bottled water, at a fraction of the cost and in the convenience of your own home.

The intention of this site is to promote the use of home water filtration, show what home filtration products are available and how to determine which ones are the best for your needs.
