WHY DO WE NEED WATER? WHERE DOES WATER OBTAIN MINERALS FROM?

As rain falls through the atmosphere, it collects impurities that are in the air. Then, it falls down to the ground and as the water passes over porous rock, it collects chemicals (like iron, magnesium and calcium) through the natural filtration process. 80% of the earth is made up of water, but only 0.3% can be harnessed and consumed. While our water supply remains constant, nature cannot keep up with man’s consumption, contamination, and pollution. This fragile resource is being compromised.  Furthermore, the addition of brine to the ecological system from water softeners has some cities passing laws to ban these systems. 


45 billion pounds of sewage waste enters our water system annually. Municipalities continue to fall below safe standards for drinking water.  Also, recent scares with pharmaceuticals being found in drinking water across the country are causing additional alarm over water supply contamination. No one is safe if they rely solely on their local water company’s management of their drinking water to FDA standards. That’s why 47% of people will not drink unfiltered water. Would you?
