While the old saying of ‘health is wealth’ continues to find great relevance even in current times, there is a significant group that considers knowledge to be the better candidate for being classified as wealth.
Well, there is some truth in this regard but again, only to ‘some’ extent as health should always be the first priority as without sound health, your body cannot go out and do tasks so as to gain sound knowledge.
A little extra knowledge never goes awry and human beings continue to gain it many times in their lives in the form of challenges and obstacles that are put out in front of them by fate.
Even as important a basic necessity as water that merits a discussion through which knowledge can be gained and we are going to start this topic with water filters and their significance.
First let get to clear some confusions that people have over certain topics like for example, they are completely ignorant about hard water and soft water as they believe water to be the same for everything and the natural blue color that they have come to associate with it.
Hard water is that type of water that is high on mineral content and is formed when water filters through various deposits of minerals such as chalk, limestone, gypsum, smaller metals and other particles.
This water consists of numerous high profile chemical elements like magnesium carbonate, calcium, zinc, copper, etc. to name a few and sometimes an excess of anything makes it difficult to trace this back to its origins.
If you were to drink hard water, you may get health benefits but in a limited manner and if you take it from an industrial point of view, it can lead to financial breakdowns like for boilers, cooling towers and other similar equipments that are known to handle hard water.
People generally mistake hard water as being ‘hard and difficult’ to gulp down the throat and cannot make the connection through its chemical compounds, which is not their fault as this is a highly technical term to look into.
This water is of two types like temporary and permanent where the former is due to minerals dissolved into water that yield compounds of calcium and magnesium in large numbers whereas the latter has various mineral contents that are removed by the process of boiling.
It is defined as the surface water that has lower concentration of atoms and molecules, most prominently in magnesium and calcium, which is the exact opposite of hard water.
The origins of soft water date back a long time and they are called so when there is a heavy rainfall that fills up the drainage to the brim and the basin is formed through hard mass rocks that are impervious to mineral particles.
Similar to hard water, consumption of soft water too has its own side effects like if you drink it in excess quantity, you will have a rapid deterioration of health because calcium and magnesium are required to maintain a steady metabolism in the human body and since soft water has both in little quantity, the body will be more vulnerable to health hazards.
Therefore, to avoid such situations, it is better to have your own water filters if you want high quality drinking water and for sure they will have metals, impurities, filth and harmful chemicals in high quantity.
Water filters are of different models from reputed brands all over the world and if you choose the right one, your water problem is solved and here are certain points to loon in a water filter system:
- Make sure that the model can remove contamination that comes from tap water that are dominated by microorganisms like bacteria, fungi and parasites that come along with pollutants from around the vicinity
- Water filters should have a high filtration rate so as to filter out these impurities for good without destroying the mineral and nutrition content in it, like Brita 10 cup everyday water pitcher
- The water quality should be excellent as tap water contains chlorine that has a strong and pungent smell so measure the pH balance on a regular basis that preserve the natural content in the water
