ALL ABOUT WATER

WHAT’S IN YOUR WATER?
The contamination of water is directly related to the degree of contamination of our environment. Rainwater flushes airborne pollution from the skies, and then washes over the land before running into the, rivers, aquifers, and lakes that supply our drinking water. Any and all chemicals generated by human activity can and will find their way into water supplies.

Water is a chemical substance with the chemical formula H20. Water covers 70.9% of the earth's surface, with only 2.5% of that being freshwater.
The human body contains from 55% to 78% water, depending on body size.
Water fit for human consumption is called drinking water or potable water.

Drinking water is often collected at springs, extracted from artificial borings (wells) in the ground, or pumped from lakes and rivers.
Liquid chlorine is mixed into drinking water and swimming pools to destroy bacteria.
Chlorination is the process of adding the element chlorine to water as a method of water purification to make it fit for human consumption as drinking water. Water which has been treated with chlorine is effective in preventing the spread of waterborne disease.
Chlorine is one of the most commonly manufactured chemicals in the United States. Its most important use is as a bleach in the manufacture of paper and cloth, but it is also used to make pesticides (insect killers), rubber, and solvents.
According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality, “Cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.”
Estimates variously place worldwide bottled water sales at between $50 and $100 billion each year.
Bottled water produces up to 1.5 million tons of plastic waste per year. According to Food and Water Watch, that plastic requires up to 47 million gallons of oil per year to produce.
As much as 40% of the bottled water sold in the U.S. is just filtered tap water. Be sure to check the label and look for “from a municipal source” or “community water system”, which just means it is tap water.

The average person in the United States uses anywhere from 80-100 gallons of water per day. Flushing the toilet actually takes up the largest amount of this water.
Water leads to increased energy levels. The most common cause of daytime fatigue is actually mild dehydration.
Hard water can create a substance called scale, over time, scale buildup can block pipes and reduce water flow, or even stain sinks and showers, issues that lead to expensive repair bills.
Water Treatment Systems containing resin eliminate scale buildup
