Why do I need a drinking water filter system if my tap water is clear?

Understanding Drinking Water Contamination

Tap water, no matter how clean it appears, typically contains several synthetic and organic substances that are dangerous if consumed. Most people believe that water that looks, smells, and tastes clean has to be safe for consumption. That's why drinking water contamination is such a serious concern. The water supply doesn't have to look, smell, or taste bad in order to pose significant health risks. Many of the most dangerous substances that find their way into the drinking water supply are invisible, odorless, and tasteless, making them virtually undetectable.

The best way to make sure that the tap water in your home is safe for consumption is to use a carbon water filter to purify the water before drinking it, cooking with it, or using it to wash your dishes. Drinking water filter systems have been demonstrated to be a very effective at removing even the tiniest particles of dangerous chemicals and other substances from tap water. When you install a carbon water filter, you'll likely be shocked to see the quantity and variety of substances that the filtration system captures. You'll surely be glad the contaminants from your home's water supply are trapped in the filter rather than inside your body.
