Diatomaceous Earth Filters For Safe Drinking Water

in Drinking-water

Safe drinking water is not a luxury enjoyed by everyone on this earth. It is hard to realize the value of something when we have it in abundance. We are fortunate enough to receive clean drinking water at our houses and the credit goes to our state's water treatment department. The water we drink is purified by a natural filtration procedure that makes use of diatomaceous earth filters. The filtration system has been scientifically proved as one of the most effective ways to free water of all sorts of impurities and fine particles.

Nowadays people are depending on bottled mineral water for drinking purposes. And the bottling companies have done a great marketing job. However, most of these companies make use of same sort of DE or diatomaceous earth filters for purifying the water. And some of these brands hardly undergo any filtration process.

If we look back a few decades back, many rural parts of our country didn't have access to public water supply. The situation was even worse in other parts of the world. In fact, many nations are still not able to provide water supply to all the corners of their land. Even today in such places people depend on well water driven into their homes by means of a pump. However, such water contains lot of pollutants and metal particles that can cause lot of damage.

Boiling the water can help in destroying the microbes and bacteria but certainly it cannot remove the microscopic metal and dust particulates. Over the years, consumption of such water can lead to several serious illnesses and organ damage. In such water deficient places, regular use of a domestic filtration system is the only way to stay safe. Again, diatomaceous earth filters are one of the most common domestic filters marketed worldwide. Since diatomaceous earth is made from natural sedimentary rocks it is entirely safe and has no side effects. The rock is formed of silica, alumina and iron oxide. And it is naturally white in color. Since it is composed of fossilized algae called diatoms, it is also popularly terms as diatomite. Apart from filtration process diatomite has many uses. However around 70 percent of the entire diatomite production goes into the filtration industry.

Diatomaceous earth filtration is an environmental friendly filtration process. This is the main reason why our government has installed the system for the entire water treatment requirements throughout the country. DE filters do not involve any sort of harmful chemicals, neither does it leaves behind any sort of hazardous elements. And the best part is that DE is recyclable, which means it doesn't create any sort of environmental waste.

Any filtration system that makes of chemical compounds is not entirely safe when it comes to drinking water. Children and pregnant women are more vulnerable to the risks of unsafe drinking water or unsafe water treatment procedure. Hence, wherever we go it is always essential to ensure the safety levels associated with the drinking water we get.

    There are company's out there that offer Water from Air technology also known as atmospheric water generators. These systems generate water that is 100% free of chlorine, fluoride, lead, recycled water, effluent and other toxic wastes. Most filtration systems remove all trace minerals from the water, thereby producing clean water. However there are systems that are specifically designed to retain the beneficial minerals that keep you healthy whilst removing impurities. So not only does an atmospheric water generator eliminate the need for plastic bottle the water generated with these dispensers costs in the neighborhood of 6 cents per gallon.
