Discover The Most Effective Type of Drinking Water Dispenser

Let’s face it, there are so many types of drinking water dispenser available today it can make for a confusing choice. Once you know what to look for however, the choice becomes a much simpler one.

 You can choose from the simple kitchen jug, reverse osmosis (RO), distillation or active carbon block drinking water dispenser.

A kitchen jug type, while cheap to buy and convenient, only filters out some of the chlorine to improve the taste and smell. When you factor in the cost of replacement cartridges, they are the most expensive ones and fail to remove most of the harmful contaminants.

Distillation and RO systems are not recommended as they leave you with demineralized water. This is suitable for industry and your car battery, but drinking distilled water without the trace minerals is not good for your long-term health and well-being.

Don’t take my word for it, even the World Health Organization states the same!

These systems also struggle to remove the small synthetic chemicals like pesticides and herbicides that can lead to health problems.

An activated carbon drinking water dispenser is the most effective as it can chemically and physically get rid of the contaminants, including the synthetic ones.

In fact, the most effective filters can remove 99% of the main contaminants when they use a dual filter system with ion exchange and sub micron filtering to leave a healthy neutral or alkaline pH level.

You are then left with the model type to suit your needs. The popular ones are under counter filters as they are out of sight but you can also choose from a showerhead filter or a whole house system to purify all your water.

Ensure that the under counter models can deliver up to 30 gallons an hour otherwise you may be left standing around all day waiting!

If you don’t want to go the whole hog for a whole house system, then the under counter and showerhead filter is a great combination.

The reason is that when you shower in chlorinated water, the chlorine converts in the steam to chloroform gas and you can inhale more of this than you can by drinking lots of unfiltered water.

I hope this article helps to guide you to the best systems on offer today that fully protect your health from the increasing menace of contaminants in the supply.
