When living a comfortable life with access to all infrastructure and technology, there are things you can take for granted. Safe water, that is water without chemical contaminants is one of those. For millions of people, safe drinking water is a dream.
Our ceramic filtration technology makes drinking water affordable and accessible for all. While advancements have been made in this field, there are some basic principles that you need to know about the quality of drinking water and the chemical contaminants that are found in drinking water.
6 chemical contaminants found in your unfiltered, drinking water:
1. Volatile organic compounds:
These enter groundwater from industrial effluents when used in factories making plastics, dyes, rubbers, polishes, solvents, crude oil products, insecticides, inks, varnishes, degreasers, and many more.
Bacteria and parasites that cause illness can find their way into water supplies that are inadequately treated to kill germs. Though most filtration systems take care of these, leakages from sewage systems can cause such contaminations, especially in cities.
3. Chlorine treatment by-products:
Chemicals used in drinking water’s disinfection process, such as trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids, may cause cancer and reproductive problems if present in high quantities.
4. Plasticizers & chlorinated solvents:
Another form of industrial wastage which enters the environment from improper waste disposal, leaching runoff, leaking storage tank, and industrial runoff.
5. Vinyl chloride:
Used to make PVC plastic products, such as some pipes, this cancer-causing contaminant can leach from older PVC piping and has been found in the drinking water of a small number of communities across the country.
Though sometimes present in very minute traces, these are still dangerous because of the side effects that prescription drugs can cause.
