How safe is your tap water?

Not only is drinking ENOUGH water essential for health and well being, drinking QUALITY water is equally important for all functions of the human body.

Dr. Oz featured the Aquasana Shower and Whole House Water Filters on the “Don’t Drink The Water” show that aired on October 20, 2009, it reinforced how essential is to understand the water quality of your community (click here for the 2008 City of Fort Worth, water quality report).  If the water you and your family are consuming and bathing in is full of pesticides and other toxic residue, it begins to defeat the purpose of drinking water to eliminate waste and to restore optimal cell function.  Toxic water is often orderless, colorless and tasteless but can potentially cause major physical, mental and dental issues.  As Dr. Oz said, “Please filter your water if your City’s water quality report reveals such things as; E-Coli, Arsenic, Lead or Nitrates.


"I have used the Aquasana line of products for the past eight years based on the quality, ease of use and affordability." A.Powers

If a Whole House Water Filtration System is not in your budget or you are a renter; my personal recommendation is a “point of use water filtration system”. This means the filtration mechanism is attached directly to your faucet or shower head. Point of use filters  artrash watere less costly than whole house filters, easily accessed for periodic filter changes  and avoid the hassle of keeping up with water jugs. Another advantage to a point of use filtration system is the avoidance of plastic bottles.Not only are you provided the option to drink out of glass eliminating the potential  of drinking toxins released while the water is stored in plastic; you will also help relieve our overloaded landfills.

Listed below are just a few facts on why drinking quality purified  water is essential for optimal health & well being:

  • The body will not function properly without enough water since over 70% of the human body is comprised from water.
  • Daily water intake should be a minimum of  ½ of your body weight in ounces for optimal metabolic function.
  • During weight loss, extra water is needed to flush out the excess waste discarded by the metabolized fat.
  • Retained water is often caused by dehydration and will look like excess weight causing a bloated feeling.
  • Hydration helps maintain proper muscle tone and helps keep the skin clear, healthy and resilient.
