On May 17, 2010 the President’s Anti-Cancer Panel made the recommendation that people use home water filtering devices to decrease exposure to cancer causing agents (read more here). Filtering home tap water can decrease exposure to numerous known carcinogens and chemicals used by municipal water suppliers to transport “clean” water - water free of disease - to your home. These chemicals are not safe for you….they keep the water safe until it reaches you - that is the myth about good water
Request a municipal water test or a well water analysis for your Natick, Framingham or Boston Metro West Area home today to learn more about what’s in the water you drink.
Did you know that some of the pipes bringing water to your home or business are 100 years old? Because rebuilding the water distribution system to provide truly safe water would cost countless billions of dollars, the federal government allows municipal water suppliers to introduce certain persistent chemicals (ones that don’t break down easily) into the water supply to kill diseases so that “clean” tap water can be delivered to your home. However, these chemicals combine with the dirt and organic material in those old rusty pipes as your water travels through them, forming what are known as DBPs—water disinfectant byproducts.
DBPs are toxic substances. Your body absorbs DBP’s and chemicals through your skin when you shower or your children bathe - you inhale and absorb as much of these substances and chemicals in one 10 minute shower as drinking 8 glasses of unfiltered water.
Think of the public water system like a banana …. you wouldn’t eat the peel ….. you strip it away before consuming the safe food within!
We can do the same thing to your water by stripping away the harmful agents in the water through filtration, enabling you to consume truly “safe” water without the “peel” of harmful, dangerous chemicals.
