Many people know proper hydration can directly benefit their overall health. Water can improve your skin, help you lose weight and even improve your immune system. However, if your water is contaminated, it can actually be harmful to your health. Our water filtration systems at Ben Franklin Dallas can help keep your H2O good to go.
How Water Gets Contaminated
There are a variety of reasons pollutants find their way into your drinking water. It comes down to different types of contaminants such as chemical substances, microbial substances and radioactive waste. If your water is drawn from a river, a typical offender is the disposal of sewage. If your water comes from underground sources, fertilizers and pesticides can seep into the pool.
Unfiltered water may be contaminated with chlorine, lead and other potentially harmful substances. Having Plano plumbers install a water filtration system in your home can help eliminate those toxins.
Drink It Up
In addition to quality, consider quantity. Typically, people should aim to drink eight, 8-ounce glasses of water each day. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, many Americans fall far short of that, with nearly one half drinking fewer than four glasses a day. The agency goes on to say drinking more water can maintain your body temperature, control calories and balance your body fluids.
