Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 11, 2006
Concerns over recent news reports of major contaminates found in drinking water throughout the US have forced countless Americans to take matters into their own hands.
“We’ve seen an incredible surge the last few years in people taking steps to protect their families from the very questionable American water supply,” said Ray Scardigno, a water filtration professional with FiltersFast.com. “Disturbing studies of both tap water and bottled water have prompted hundreds of thousands of people to look for their own solutions.”
In fact, it’s estimated that American consumers spend more than $1 billion a year on all manner of home water-filtering gear.
“Many of our customers feel that with contaminants constantly increasing in our environment and showing up in tap water, and the threat of water system terrorism, doing something is better than doing nothing,” said Scardigno.
Consumer Reports agrees that installing a water filtration system is a good way of assuring the quality of your water. CR reported in a recent issue, “Filtering your tap water gives you control over what's removed from the water you drink.”
“Though no system can remove every contaminant out there, water filter devices can improve the quality of tap water by reducing health hazards such as bacteria, parasites, chemical pollutants and other contaminants,” said Scardigno.
Bottled Water – Help or Hype?
While some consumers have switched to bottled water, studies conducted by government, university and independent watchdog organizations have shown it’s not a reliable alternative. Surprisingly, the source is often a municipal water supply. “ In essence, you are paying hundreds or thousands of times more for something that may be from the same source as your tap water, and could be better, or could be worse,” said Scardigno. “The one thing it really has going for it is that it’s convenient. That’s a lot of money to pay for convenience.”
Consumer Reports seems to agree. In the March issue, it states: “Unlike bottled water, many filters tell you exactly what they filter out. Filters also give you clean water that's cheaper than bottled water delivered to your home…”
Breaking Through the Propaganda and Half-Truths
Scardigno warns that buyers had better do their homework, because the explosive demand for home water filtration has sparked some unethical companies and bogus or exaggerated claims.
How do you know which filtration systems are the best available? “Having the certification of a credible independent laboratory is one good way of assuring quality,” said Scardigno. “One good source is the NSF, which insists on extensive laboratory testing for each contaminant removal claim before it will grant its Certificate of Claims.” Check out http://www.FiltersFast.com for water filters and water filter systems with NSF certifications.
“Choosing the right treatment device is an important decision so it is equally important to know what you’re looking for,” says Scardigno. “Some may want the protection of a whole house system while others just need to filter out unpleasant tastes and odors from their drinking water.”
There are several ways to research what water filtration system may be right for you. Consult with a water treatment professional, get your water tested, or conduct online research at sites such as NSF or WQA. Businesses that sell home filtration systems, such as Filters Fast, can also be a good resource.
