Water in focus. Water filters for domestic use
Water is an essential part of our lives. We drink it, swim in it and clean with it. But what happens to water when we use it for household purposes? In this article we discuss the importance of Water filters for domestic use and give some tips on how to choose the best one for your needs.
The earth, our blue planet, is two-thirds covered with water. Life on earth is not possible without water. The UN General Assembly unanimously declared access to clean drinking water and basic sanitation as a human right.
Our body alone consists of two thirds water. In its bound form, it is involved in all vital processes in our cells. Water is therefore of central importance for humans. The normal The daily fluid requirement alone is about 2.5 litres per person. A lack of water leads to severe health problems in our country. But so does polluted water.
Finally, the Drinking water qualitywhether our body is functioning without restrictions. Pollutants can severely impair vital processes. Mobility and health literally sit on dry land. Water also has an important transport function. It is the task of water to transport nutrients from food to the individual body cells and to flush toxins from the kidneys, intestines and skin. However, if drinking water is prevented from performing this sluicing function, its purifying and detoxifying effect is correspondingly reduced.
Water is the ideal source for being at peace with yourself. With a water filter, also called an osmosis system, you can remove pollutants from your tap water so that you can rely on ideal water, thanks to the Osmosisfor yourself and your body.
Tap water = drinking water?
Is your tap water really of food quality? Can we trust our tap water completely unfiltered? Background: The waterworks are obliged by law to treat groundwater, surface water and spring water according to the guidelines of the current Drinking Water Ordinance. Only then is tap water safe to drink without any restrictions. But how strict are these regulations and what actually happens to the tap water on its way from the waterworks to the tap on your sink? Is there an effective molecular filtration?
A major shortcoming: water is often transported through outdated pipelines. Residues of copper or lead can get into the water here. This harbours great Health risks especially for pregnant women, diabetics and small children. Tap water with elevated lead, cadmium, copper and nitrate concentrations should not be used for food preparation. Serious damage to health can result. High nitrate levels are also a problem in connection with galvanised pipes, because of the possible formation of nitrates (carcinogenic).
The limits for pollutants in water may be exemplary in Germany, but the increased environmental pollution by pollutants such as nitrates, pesticides, hydrocarbons, heavy metal compounds, chlorine, surfactants, drug residues, hormones, Microplastics in drinking water and radioactive substances makes complete purification of drinking water almost impossible, nay imperative.
The source is the tap
Health and well-being with every sip of filtered water. Our recommendation: Only trust water that you treat yourself, i.e. first filter it, then revitalise it as you wish. We will be happy to help you make the right decision. Our reverse osmosis water filtration systems ensure uncontaminated and pure Water at its best Quality. Naturally good - the reverse osmosis filtration process takes nature as its model.
Reverse osmosis - How does it work?
Reverse osmosis is demonstrably one of the most effective filtration processes. The Reverse osmosis technology comes from NASA space research. Freshwater-poor island states use reverse osmosis for seawater desalination. For decades, reverse osmosis has been used in medicine (e.g. for blood washing in dialysis machines), food production, the printing industry and, of course, in drinking water production, and new areas of application are constantly being added. More and more private households are recognising the potential of reverse osmosis water filters.
The multi-stage procedure begins with the three Pre-filteringwhich are again divided into three phases. First, the water is roughly cleaned. Sand, rust or other dirt particles are removed with the help of the sediment filter. The activated carbon filter reduces organic compounds such as chlorine, heavy metals, pesticides and gases. The carbon block filter is there to remove micro-sediments. These three pre-filter phases have a life-extending effect on the downstream reverse osmosis membrane.
Only now is the water pressed through the osmosis membrane. The ultra-fine pores of this membrane are comparable to our body cells and have a diameter of just 0.0001 micrometres! For comparison - a human hair has a size of about 70 micrometres! These pores only allow water molecules to pass through, as well as a part of the nutritionally valuable minerals (electrolytes). Finally, the water is refreshed by the activated carbon after-filter and odours are removed. With an optional additional filter, a additional water revitalisation take place.
Why water filters and reverse osmosis systems?
Your advantages at a glance:
