Water. One of the most important substances on earth. We all need it to survive. Quite simply, if there was no water – there would be no life on earth. Lucky for us, living in a developed country such as Australia means we have access to drinkable water just about anywhere we go.
We are very fortunate to be able to wake up every morning with access to safe drinking water. However, what if we told you, the quality of the water you drink can be even better than what you are taking into your body now.
The tap water we consume today presents risks and may contain impurities, bacteria, dust and toxic substances. These issues could occur due to leakages or water running through old pipes or storage in contaminated tanks after it’s been treated by the government.
It is our responsibility as home users to treat our water through smart water filtration systems. Not only does this enhance the quality of water, but ensures what we take into our bodies is clean and free from harmful contaminants.
Let us take a second and imagine placing toxins, chlorine or bacteria in our bodies with our water. It doesn’t sound pleasant! Treating our water through smart water filtration systems is extremely important in removing all of the harmful substances that could be contained in water. The purification process removes harmful toxins, bacteria, pesticides, microplastic and even the bad flavour that is sometimes present in tap water.
So, why would you want to improve the quality of your water and install a water filtration system?
Although the tap-water you are drinking now may not be too bad for you, it could be much better, and we are here to tell you why.
The benefits of a water filtration system: providing you with the best quality water
- Reduce the risk of disease

Although the water we are drinking may not necessarily be bad, there is variation in the quality of drinking water because of the different sources used and different forms of treatment. Several chemicals and toxins are sneaking into your tap water you probably didn’t know about. Tap water contains chemicals such as chlorine which are added by many water utility companies as a disinfectant. However, it might have some harmful effects on the human body, causing an increased chance of disease and other health problems.
Another example is heavy metals – namely Lead – that might leak into the water from pipes and fittings. This compound is known to cause significant health effects, including birth defects and more. If this is a concern, you will need to install a water filtration system that is designed to remove this substance.
This is where smart and effective water filtration products come into place. These products remove the bacteria and harmful substances from your water, giving you access to high-quality, great-tasting, healthy, pure and safe drinking water.
2. Save money and the environment
Do you end up buying bottled water every day because you don’t want to drink tap water? “Australians spent up to $2 billion on bottled water in 2015.” Instead of purchasing bottled water every day for the rest of your life, invest in a quality water filter and eliminate the hassle of buying bottled water. Besides being expensive, it is no secret that bottled water is damaging to the environment.
A report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation found the equivalent of a garbage truck worth of plastic bottles was being dumped into the ocean every minute. If this does not change, “the ocean is expected to contain one tonne of plastic for every three tonnes of fish by 2025, and by 2050, more plastics than fish (by weight).
Plastic bottles end up in our landfills and take thousands of years to decompose. Not only do these bottles fill up our landfills, but they also end up in rivers, lakes, and oceans killing our precious wildlife. Water filtration systems come with many benefits – they will eliminate the need for buying water-bottles, saving the environment and not putting you out of pocket. Use your water filtration products to fill up your reusable eco-friendly water bottle, instead of purchasing one that is going to harm the environment.
3. Better tasting water
Some unfiltered water can taste and smell bad. Many people who use water filters have reported that their water tastes better and purer after they installed the system. If you have trouble drinking regular water, try and use a water filtration system. This will eliminate the contaminants that impact the taste. Water filtration systems can also remove substances causing odour, such as Sulphur, that makes your water have a foul smell.
Make the change today and start drinking quality water like never before.
