How much do you know about water? Are you getting enough? In this blog, we'll examine some important questions about water and let you in on why quality water is a vital component for you and your family.
1. Why Should People Drink More Water
Around 75% of Americans, are not consuming enough water daily, despite being figuratively surrounded by it. Why is this a problem? Water can impact your energy levels, brain function, muscle function and mood. Not drinking enough water daily can lead to weight gain, an increase in migraines, constipation, energy loss and premature aging.

Water is a workhorse, hauling important nutrients like oxygen to our cells and stabilizing body temperature through sweat and breathing. Water lubricates joints, cushions organs and removes wastes.
2. Why is Water Vital for Survival?
What does the average person need to survive? Netflix, a cell phone with wifi, video games and cheeseburgers are all viable options. You may be surprised, however, to learn that apart from air, water is the most necessary nutrient for most living things.

Water is even more important than food. You may already know that the typical person can exist without food for about a month. But take away water, and sadly the average person wouldn't make it past a week. But why is that?

Water is a part of so many vital functions in our body that we are practically made up of more water than anything else. On cold days you can actually see water vapor leaving your body when your exhalation comes out in the form of steam. That's because your lungs alone, are made up of more than 80% water.

Simply put, if you're not getting enough water, your body systems can't run properly. The fact is that the brain and heart are made up of about 73% water, skin is 64% water, and muscles and kidneys clock in at nearly 80%. Even our bones are made up of 31% water. With these facts, it's easy to see that the real fuel of the human body is some high-quality H2O.
3. Why Invest in a Water Purification System?
Water purification systems can solve the problem of dehydration and cut the monthly expense of bottled water, not to mention cutting down on the waste produced by bottled water. The fact that many people are dehydrated comes as no surprise when one considers how unfiltered tap water tastes. In fact, many people are averse to drinking water straight from the tap and swear by bottled water only.

Many don’t like tap water because it can taste bad when there are high concentrations of chlorine, iron and minerals. Even if your water is drinkable from the tap there are other things that can go wrong in your water supply. The excess minerals in hard water can cause your clothes to wear out faster, stain your appliances and clog your plumbing system.

To drink more water daily, consider carrying a refillable BPA free bottle with you at all times. Sipping water all day is a great way to increase your intake, and it doesn't have to be expensive. Did you know that the average tap water usage per person in the United States is about 50 gallons per day? Since the average cost for water utilities in a home is around $2.00 for 1,000 gallons, you're getting about 5 gallons for a penny.
