Michigan Water Filtration Company Explains Why to Choose Filtered Water Over Bottled
By: ProOne Water Filters
You may be surprised to know bottled water is not as pure as you may think! No water is completely free from contaminants and the standards for bottled water are actually based on the standards for tap water, according to the Center for Disease Control.
What Contaminants Can Be Found in Bottled Water?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are over 90 contaminants that are regulated in drinking water. These include microorganisms, heavy metals like lead and copper, and disinfectants. Consumer Reports found in a study that 43 out of 47 bottled water brands tested contained some levels of PFAS chemicals and all contained heavy metals, albeit low levels.
While bottled water isn't unsafe, here are some reasons you should filter your water instead:
You know where it comes from – When you use your own water, you know the source. Whether you use a well or city system, you can test your water for contaminants and get a clear and relatively consistent understanding of the makeup of your water.
Convenient – It's easier to grab a glass of water from home than to drive to the store for bottled water!
Remove contaminants –No water is 100% free from contaminants, but ProOne water filters do a great job at removing over 220 contaminants!
Save money – Using your own water rather buying water bottles can save you a considerable amount of money each year.
Save environment – The majority of plastic water bottles are 100% recyclable, but often end up in landfills. By drinking filtered water instead of bottled, you can reduce plastic waste.
