One of the hardest things for me when I started my weight loss journey was drinking water. For years, I wouldn’t drink water because it tasted absolutely terrible. This lead to me drinking lots of soda, unless I was in one of the few cities I thought had great tasting water. As I got older and tried differing filtering systems, I learned it wasn’t that I hated water – it was that I hated the taste of tap water. Once I did a bit of research, I was shocked at all the chemicals in tap water and how it isn’t as pure as we may think! Below, I have an infographic that I thought did a fantastic job talking about tap water and what we can do to make it even cleaner for ourselves and our family.

I would love to have filtered water. Thank you for sharing.

We have well water and though we do not have chemicals in it as city water or treated water, we do have chemicals in it. It would be wonderful to have a system that could purify our water that makes it chemical and mineral free.

As odd as it sounds, I LOVE well water! I lived in a barn in northern NJ for nearly 3 years and that was our water. 🙂
Paula Ball says
My doctor has told me to not even drink my well water(I have an autoimmune disease). There is some type of amoeba that is in the water that has actually killed a couple of people in south Louisiana.

After seeing this, it makes me happy that I don’t live in a big city, and I have my own well. Nothing is put in my water, it doesn’t come from a sewage treatment plant and there is no added chlorine or fluoride. I still use filtration though to help with the high sulfur, but I’m glad otherwise my water is clean.

WOW! I never realized what was in our water. We drink a lot of tap water and now I think I will be looking into purchasing a filter for not only my family but my critters too.
This is the most important thing we must consider for a healthy life.
It’s a very effective filter to get pure water.I’m very much interested to get one.
I drink water all day long. I can’t seem to get enough. I do filter the water before drinking.

This is very informative. It’s a great chart. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for the info including the chart. We have a filter on our faucet in the kitchen and still buy water by the gallon (ohhh, the dreaded plastic!!which also screws up the water after a while)
It is unfortunate that, with all this modern technology, the water isn’t of better quality. Of course, I guess I should just be thankful that we don’t live in a third world country where no clean water is available at all.
As much as possible, I try to stay away from drinking tap water. I mean I always order water whenever I go to restaurants, but I never drink them. Mostly because I don’t drink sodas and it’s the only water I would ever drink. But if I do drink the water they serve, I always have to ask for lemon.
Very informative. I am very picky about my water. I wonder how those unregulated chemicals get in water supplies? Thanks for sharing! I like your infographs!

I drink mainly tap water. Tap water at dinner, restaurants, tap water when I’m on the road even. I’ve been wanting a filtration system because of the taste and I have had a Brita but wasn’t impressed. It just takes up so much room and it really slows the flow of the water. Now I have a better reason for a filtration system and a great reason for cooking with filtered water.

I have well water and have never found a filtration system I really liked. This might be worth looking into. Thanks for sharing!
