The Best Strategies For Keeping Your Drinking Water Clean

The water flowing into your home may not always be clean, despite all efforts by the responsible authorities to ensure it is. There have been known to be outbreaks in towns due to contaminated water. To ensure your safety, you need to make an effort to keep your water safe to drink. Some of the methods you can use to purify your water include water softeners, carbon filters, sedimentation systems, reverse osmosis, and ultraviolet light sterilizers. These methods are able to filter out most harmful particles and chemicals which could be entering your water supply. This is not always economical and you may prefer to only purify water that you actually drink. The following purification methods can be used to purify just your drinking water.

Personal Water Bottles
These bottles have an inbuilt purification system. They have a pleated glass fiber, iodinated, or carbon filter. They are therefore able to filter the water as you draw it into your mouth.

Pour-Through Filters with Pitchers
These are filters attached to pitchers. As you pour your water into the pitcher, it passes through the filter and it is purified. The water in the pitcher is therefore considered safe for drinking.

Faucet-Mounted Filters
These types of filters are mounted on your faucet. Whenever you open your faucet and water runs through, it is filtered and you can safely pour yourself a glass and drink it.

Countertop Filters
These function much like the faucet-mounted filters but are not connected to the faucet. They are used to filter only water meant for drinking and they are isolated from the main water supply. You can use them when you do not want to filter functional water, like what you use to wash your dishes with.

Refrigerator Filters
You can install this type of filter on your fridge water dispenser, if it is fitted with one. It filters water as it is drawn from the dispensing tap of the dispenser. It gives you cool and clean water.

Most of the water purifiers listed here use filters filled with carbon particles. These particles, while trapping most of the contaminants of water, do not get all of it out. Any purifier utilizing just filtration would not completely purify the water. It is therefore wise to use two or more methods to ensure your water is completely purified. A combination of a point-of-entry method together with a point-of-use system can give you more effectiveness in purifying your water.
