Do you know where your drinking water comes from or how its quality compares to other water sources around the country?
Did you know that bottled water products and public water supplies are not required to be 100% free of contaminants. Many of the water treatment devices on the market today help improve the taste, odor, or color of the water, as well as reduce our exposure to harmful contaminants such as lead, parasites, and trihalomethanes (chlorination by-products).
