What are the Ingredients in Tap Water?

We are shocked by the answer we get when we ask what is in tap water. You are correct, our drinking water contains a toxic cocktail of chemicals that multiply every day. Our aim is to inform you about how you can eliminate these contaminants.

A century ago, people were dying from the water-borne diseases cholera and typhoid that contaminated the water. Authorities initiated the chlorination of water to combat these diseases. A positive result was achieved in preventing disease and saving lives. Sadly, other problems were created at the same time.

During World War I, chlorine was used to destroy buildings and crops. In terms of water, governments utilize it because it is inexpensive as a disinfectant for drinking water. It hasn’t changed so much since then.

What are the ingredients in tap water? Here’s what you need to know. A chlorine disinfectant immediately forms trihalomethanes, or THMs, when it reacts with organic materials in your drinking water. As a result, tap water carries this byproduct, which leads to health problems. In addition to these physical issues, a woman can suffer miscarriages during pregnancy, liver and kidney dysfunction, and nervous system problems.

“Cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water is as much as 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.” U.S. Council of Environmental Quality.

Chemicals known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) also occur in tap water. These are pollutants carried in the air by sprays, petrol emissions, and agricultural runoff. Similar problems face you when ingested including skin irritation. Some parasites, such as cryptosporidium and giardia, are chlorine resistant. Elderly and frail people are especially susceptible to these symptoms, causing flu-like symptoms.

It has been discovered that drinking water contains traces of prescription medications, including antidepressants, hormones, steroids and antibiotics. How long will it be before strains of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites become resistant.

In addition to the above contaminants, one of the worst of all that can be found in tap water is lead. Your drinking water is typically contaminated with lead at some point between your main street and your faucet. Children who are exposed to lead at even trace amounts will suffer from learning disabilities, diminished IQ, short attention span and high blood pressure. Adults who are exposed to lead at even trace amounts will also suffer from these health issues.

With this knowledge, you may want to consider a water purification system to protect you and your loved ones and eliminate these contaminants from your Daytona Beach home’s tap water.
