3 Big Drawbacks to Drinking Ultra Pure Water

Let’s face it. Water pollution has been a fact of life for the last several decades. As a result, companies have raced to get their ultra pure water delivery systems to market. The competition between reverse osmosis, distillation and bottled water companies has been fierce. But its only been recently that problems with pure water have come to the attention of consumers.

I am one of those consumers who take their drinking water very seriously. During my research to find the best in-home water treatment system, I learned about three big drawbacks to drinking ultra pure water. If you’re in the market for one of these systems, you may be interested in what I found out.

1. Ultra pure water may not be pure at all.

You need to know that there are limits to the types of toxins that some of the more popular water purification systems are able to remove. Reverse osmosis and distillation are two big selling systems that have problems getting rid of synthetic chemicals, like pesticides and herbicides.

2. Making ultra pure water can be expensive and inconvenient.

The problems with pure water made from reverse osmosis and distillation can be solved with the addition of a carbon filter system. However, this tacks on an extra expense to systems that are expensive to begin with.

A reverse osmosis system can also be inconvenient because it usually requires adequate water pressure and extensive maintenance. The slow speed of creating usable water also means you’ll need to have a diaphragmed storage tank. If you add on a carbon filter system, the filters will have to be changed on a regular basis.

Ultra pure water from distillation also requires carbon filters which have to be similarly maintained.

3. Ultra pure water is, oftentimes, “dead,” and unhealthy.

Water, in its natural state, is alive with health-giving minerals. It was designed this way so we humans could easily get the magnesium, potassium and calcium that our body’s need to be strong and function properly.

Distillation and reverse osmosis strip these important minerals from the water leaving it “dead.”

You may not think that this is a big deal, but without minerals your body fluids become acidic. Your body will immediately go into action to neutralize this acid by taking minerals that are stored in your teeth and bones. If this acid isn’t neutralized the production of free radicals increases, thereby exposing you to an increased risk of cancer. Cancer cells grow more readily in an acid environment.

People that live in areas of the world where the water supplies are mineral-rich don’t have these problems with pure water. The residents in these places enjoy an existence that is practically free of disease. You can see why minerals have been referred to as “the spark plugs of life.”

So now what?

You’ll be happy to know that there is an alternative that effectively addresses the problems with pure water. Its called multi-stage filtration and I discovered it during my research for an in-home water purification system.

This break-through technology approaches water purification in a comprehensive way. Not only does it remove the majority of toxic chemicals, but it also gets rid of dangerous levels of chlorine, harmful bacteria and sediments that cause foul odors and unpleasant taste.

And the problems with pure water that has been rendered “dead” are no longer an issue. Multi-stage filtration leaves essential minerals untouched. So you end up with ultra pure water that is as healthy as it is clean.

You can choose from very affordable appliances like over or under-the-counter faucets, shower filters or whole-house systems. Everyone of these products is easy to install and maintain. The company that I purchased my system from provides outstanding customer service.

I’ve set up a website so that you can see pictures of these great water purification appliances. I’ve also included some of the results of my research if you care to get some additional information. I’ve even included a comment from a well known radio talk show host.

Make no mistake. If you’re looking for ultra pure water for your family, you are definitely on the right track. I just hope I made you aware of some of the problems with pure water.
