How does a water filtration system in your home work
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
Filtering the water in your home – how does it work?
You may think that the tap water in your home looks fine. Why do you need to do anything to it? It's important to note that you can drink water which comes straight from the tap, but it may not be the right thing to do. You cannot actually see what is in the water. Contaminated water can cause stomach problems. Some tap water is also not pleasant to drink, despite how it looks.
This is why using clean and pure water filtration is a good idea. You have the security of knowing that the water you drink is safe. The taste of the water is also improved. Let's look at what can be present in your water supply without you knowing it, and how water filtration works to resolve the problem.
What lurks in water without you knowing?
The water that is acquired by the water company needs to be treated, as it contains all sorts of bugs that could be damaging to health if the water was left untreated. Several chemicals can be used in the treatment process, including chlorine. While chlorine does the job of dealing with bugs very well, it leaves a strong taste to the water. This is not pleasant if you then drink this treated water.
Water also picks up all kinds of debris, on its way to the taps in your home. It can become contaminated by dirt, and with pesticides that are used to treat crops. Water is good for you, but only if it's clean and fresh. So, you need to filter your water supply, in order to ensure that this is the case.
How does water filtration work?
Water filtration systems make use of two different types of filtration. Physical filtration involves the use of membranes. The water passes through a membrane or series of membranes, and particles are trapped and filtered out, along with a drainage pipe. Additives can also be filtered out using chemical filtration. Some water filtration systems use both types of filtration. The end result is that you get a constant supply of clean and safe water, in your home.
If you want an easily affordable water filtration system, you may want to opt for a counter top water filter. They do not need to be plumbed in, so the purchase and fitting cost is lower than for an under sink water filter. However, although under sink water filters cost more, they do have benefits. You can filter more water using them, and they are stashed out of the way, under the sink.
Hopefully, you have a better understanding of what water filtration is, and how it works. This should help you see how important it is, to filter the water in your home. If you want to protect the health of the people who live in your household and make sure that you have a great tasting water supply, water filtration is a must.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray. They are a bit similar but yet different. Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1. Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2. Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid. Mix well. 3. Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4. Go have fun!!! This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week. I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general. I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry. I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes. :) Ready, Set, Go! Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
