Have you ever wondered what happens to water before it comes out of your tap? Several processes are used to clean the water before it gets to you, including filtration, through sand and charcoal followed by chemical disinfection, where chlorine is added to ensure any remaining bacteria are killed off. It also helps to keep pipes clean and to maintain hygienic conditions from the reservoir to your tap.
Hard water areas will have a high concentration of limescale in the water and although UK water companies do all that they can to limit the amount of lead that makes it to our taps if your home was built before 1970 then there’s a chance that your pipes could be made from it.
So although tap water is safe to drink, could it be safer and cleaner?
Filtering your water removes impurities and dangerous substances including chlorine and flouride along with heavy metals. Water filters are designed to remove almost all the lead present in your tap water as well as mercury, arsenic and many other metals. However, at the same time, they don’t remove minerals such as magnesium, calcium and zinc.
The patented ZeroWater filtration system combines five sophisticated technologies that work together to remove virtually all dissolved solids from your water. It reduces 99.6% of all total dissolved solids in your drinking water, delivering the purest tasting water within minutes. Metals, salts, pesticides and organic compounds are all reduced, it also reduces 99% of all Fluoride from your water.
ZeroWater’s first layer of filtration, activated carbon and oxidation reduction alloy, removes the chlorine taste you are accustomed to with tap water. The Ion Exchange stage removes virtually all dissolved solids that may be left over from public water systems or even leached into your water from piping, such as aluminum, lead, zinc, nitrates, and more. Three additional stages are included to remove other contaminants and ensure your water receives the appropriate amount of treatment time to deliver water that has virtually zero dissolved solids. Leaving your water super clean.
