What is in your tap water may surprise you. A ionizer for your tap system can produce cleaner and purer water for you and your family.

Do a bit of research on what comes out of the tap and you will be surprised just how little you know about the water you use. We constantly strive to do the healthy thing when it comes to what we consume and what we put into our bodies in general. Of paramount importance, the water you drink and use on a daily basis should be scrutinized.

Public water is gathered from nearby water sources and transported to a local water treatment plant. Within these plants, the water is filtered to remove debris and then chemicals are added for various reasons. Fluoride is one such chemical added and has been shown to be detrimental to the dental development of small children (under the age of five). Chlorine is also added to help kill off water-borne diseases such as cholera. Unfortunately, while very adept at killing off these diseases, chlorine is known to react with organic matter and will create trihalomethanes – a substance that is highly carcinogenic even in small amounts. If chlorine is not enough to sanitize the public water, chloramine is added. Chloramine is a safe chemical but carries the disclaimer that it should not be used in fish tanks as it kills the marine life. Once the treated water has left the treatment plant, a multitude of things can occur to contaminate this water. Lead pipes or pipes with lead soldering can leave trace amounts of said lead in the water. Long-term exposure to lead in children has been known to cause permanent brain damage. If water pipes are lined with asbestos, this carcinogen can be introduced into the water. Anywhere along the way from the treatment plant to your faucet there could be a haven for bacteria – if the chlorine level is too low, this bacteria negates the main purpose of the treatment plant.

These are just a few of the things you can find in your own tap water. What can you do to ensure fresh, clean and pure water? You should invest in an ionizer. An ionizer system first filters the water as it comes out of your tap, removing any minute debris that might have been missed from the local treatment plant. Then the filtered water is processed within an electrolysis chamber. This chamber charges the ions present in water, and the result is two types of ionized water.

Alkaline water is the drinkable type produced and acidic water is the remainder. Acidic water is perfect for cleansing and sterilizing – household cleaning, topical uses for rinsing hair and washing the body, even as a medical aid to cleanse and soothe minor cuts and abrasions. Alkaline water not only is free of contaminants and chemicals, the electrolysis process manages to make the water molecule clusters smaller than ordinary tap water. Smaller water molecules means it is easily absorbed into the body.

The average cost of a home ionizer can run between $1500 and $3000 depending upon the make and manufacturer of the system. While this may initially seem like quite a chunk of money to put out, in the long run the clean and pure water produced will pay for itself. Drinking alkaline water has shown to have quite a number of healthy benefits. Some of these benefits include relieving intestinal problems and flushing out harmful toxins within the body’s system. The Japanese have been aware of the medicinal properties of alkaline water for quite some time and have ionizers in their hospitals as standard medical equipment.

The next time you go get a glass of water from your tap think about what may be present in that water. It is worth the investigation of a home ionizer to ensure the health of you and your family.
