Most people are aware of the fact that the human body ismade up of 70 percent water, but not many people know that the human brain isalso made up of even more – 80 percent water. So it is very important tounderstand that healthy and clean water is actually the backbone of a healthylifestyle for any individual. Unfortunately, not that many people pay attentionto what kind of water they drink or cook with. Certain scientists claim thateverything which is of physical, biological or chemical origin and which getsinjected into the biosphere can and will eventually get into the earth’s watersupplies. All those contaminants need to be removed from the water before theconsumption.

Such obsolete water treatment facilities andobsolete plumbing are not adequate enough. Average water quality level is takenonly over a period of time. Certain scientific studies have shown that manmadechemicals can be identified in groundwater AND in the drinking water supplies.
