Nothing is more important to your overall health than water. But did you know that less than 1% of the world’s water is actually safe for human consumption? Water pollution effects 45% of our streams and 47% of our lakes.

Water pollution effects
If you live in city limits, you probably don’t give much thought to how the water you use each day gets into your house.
Clean your water is at its source, by the time it gets into your home with chemical compounds, and other pollutants.
Unfiltered drinking water can contain harmful contaminates. These can include, but are not limited to; fluoride.
There are many benefits to well water. Many prefer the taste of well water to that of traditional city water that is treated with chemicals.
Water consumers all assume that their water supply is safe to drink and use, but contaminated drinking water can be dangerous.
The hydrologic, or water life, cycle is the process by which water is recycled naturally. Nature doesn’t create new water, it is constantly recycling the same water that existed on the planet billions of years ago. The water you’re drinking today can potentially be the same water used to refresh a thirsty Tyrannosaurus Rex. This recycling process is known as the hydrologic or water life cycle.

Groundwater, or well water, used for drinking water can contain 73 various kinds of pesticides. Waterfilters, and regular water testing is important to ensure your drinking water is safe for consumption.Water treatment can be done if filtration is not enough.
Well water that is “smelly” is often the result of sulfur and can cause your pipes to corrode. Water testing and analysis can check sulfur levels. Water wells that become rusty is usually a direct cause of iron and manganese in the groundwater.
More than two-thirds of the Earth’s surface is covered by water, but only 2.8 percent of it is fresh water. More critically; did you know that only about 0.3 percent of the Earth’s total water supply is usable by humans? In the United States alone, the average person uses about 50 gallons of water per day, and the average family of four consumes 250 gallons of water every day.
Approximately 100,000 gallons of water were used to manufacture your family’s car. The newspaper that landed on your doorstep last Sunday morning soaked up 280 gallons of water just to print, and that five-pound sack of flour sitting on your kitchen shelf required 375 gallons of water to produce.
Water isn’t only used by humans, we consist of it. The human body is almost 70% water! The human brain alone is nearly 70% water, and our lungs are 90% water!
