Day 290: Installed 10 Stage Water Filter System
Since I’ve moved to LA, I’ve been wanting to get one because the water tastes like crap and it’s infested with all kinds of garbage. Now I can feel comfortable about drinking water again.
According to a New York Times analysis published in December 2009, more than 20 percent of water treatment systems in the U.S. providing water to 49 million people have violated key provisions of the Safe Drinking Water Act over the previous five years. Violations involved arsenic, radioactive substances like uranium or tetrachloroethylene, and coliform bacteria.
The Premium 10 Stage Water Filter removes or greatly reduces the following: chlorine, cancer causing organic/chlorine compounds called trihalomethanes (THM), bad odors, e.g., hydrogen sulfide which gives water a rotten egg smell, pesticides, herbicides, PCB’s, toxic heavy metals i.e., lead, cadmium, organic arsenic, asbestos, micro-organisms (protozoa and cysts) such as cryptosporidium and giardia, and dozens of other lesser known organic contaminants.
