Why Filter Your Water

Some people think I am just using scare tactics to sell water filters. Nothing could be further from the truth! I have been studying, reading, collecting and sharing water quality information from across America and the consensus is the same everywhere. Our drinking water is a mess!

The following is just a sample of the hundreds of reports of water pollution from various sources around the world.

These following reports come from Universities, testing labs, manufactures, water associations, government entities, the EPA, random news agency’s and they all come to the same conclusion. Your water needs filtering!

If you have looked at more then five of the articles above then I think you get the point. I can keep adding more articles as I have well over a hundred of them but I don’t feel that is really necessary. If you feel so inclined you can look up phrases like,’is drinking chlorinated water harmful’, ‘drugs in drinking water’,’drinking water pollution’ or ‘is drinking water with chloramine harmful’. Use your imagination when searching for polluted water.

 

And Remember,

“If your water had an ingredients list you probably wouldn’t drink it”

“Al Vanden Heuvel’s knowledge about water is second to none. I had him install a custom whole house water filter that works flawlessly. I have complete confidence that my filter protects my family due to Al’s passion and knowledge about water filtration. I have had systems by Rain Soft in the past. They were a lot more expensive and did not compare to the quality and performance of my Water Choices filter.”
