Boiled Water Report-The Villages Florida

Have you ever gotten a letter from the city in the mail and when you first looked at the envelope you see that it is from the city and wonder "Now what?"  Then you open it and are thinking that you have done something wrong and they want you to move something, mow something remove something etc.  However as you begin to read the letter enclosed you find that on the very top it says in big bold letters "Boil Water Report"   You think to yourself what in the world is this?  As you read it you now seeing clearly what they are talking about.  They have discovered that the purification process the city uses was not working and you now need to boil your water in order to make sure that the water is safe to drink. Great, how in the world does that happen?  What's worse is how long has this gone on before they found out about the problem?  How much water did I cook with, how much water did we use from the faucet to make our tea or lemonade or wash vegetables or worse yet either drink ourselves or give to our grand kids to drink?  Who wants to even have to worry about something like this to happen?  No one does but if you do not have the correct safeguards in place then you will have to have this worry.  Here are some safeguards to help give you peace of mind.  You can buy from amazon this reverse osmosis system that will give you purified water every time you get water from it for pennies on the dollar and it usually pays for itself within a year.

5 Stage Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System
Now if you want to protect all the water that comes into your home then you will want to get a Whole House Carbon Filtration System.  This system will stop the chlorine and other bacteria that is in the water, not to mention the dead bacteria bodies that the chlorine kills.  That's right, chlorine kills the bacteria in the water but the dead bodies of the bacteria don't go away so you end up drinking them.  This carbon filter along with the reverse osmosis system will take care of all that for you.

You can purchase these items online which is much cheaper and then if you live in The Villages Florida you can go HERE to get a plumber to put them in for you and then you will be a Happy Villager

Drinking Water-The Villages Florida

Have you ever smelled your water?  Can you smell your water?  Should you be able to smell your water?  These may seem like silly questions but in reality if you can smell your water and I'm not talking about the actual act of lifting your glass of water to your nose but the act of just turning on your water and being able to smell your water.  The next question is what does it smell like if in fact you are able to smell it?  Does it smell like Chlorine or does it have an earthy smell, kind of like freshly turned soil?  If it smells like chlorine then you definitely don't want to drink it and you may ask why does my water smell like chlorine?  The answer for that is simple, chlorine is used to disinfect the public drinking water so it is potable and safe to drink.  Well at least there are no LIVE bacteria in the water.  The chlorine kills them but the bodies are still there.  Yes you are drinking dead bacteria bodies in your water.  If the thought of that is more that you can stand then your need a reverse osmosis drinking water system that will give you purified water at your sink and for pennies on the dollar with no plastic bottles to throw back into our environment and no need to buy and tote those heavy cases of water into the house.  You simply lift your lever and get healthy clean purified water into your glass.

Now if your water has the earthy smell that is called Geosmin. Is Geosmin toxic?  What is Geosmin? In short this is what Geosmin is; Geosmin is produced by the gram-positive bacteria Streptomyces, a genus of Actinobacteria in the order Actinomycetales, and released when these microorganisms die. Communities whose water supplies depend on surface water can periodically experience episodes of unpleasant-tasting water when a sharp drop in the population of these bacteria releases geosmin into the local water supply.  So in other words you are drinking dead bacteria once again and this is another reason to get a reverse osmosis drinking water system that fits under your sink and provides clean, healthy purified water at your sink.

Now if you don't want the odor of chlorine or Geosmin coming into your home then you will want to buy a whole house carbon filter, which will remove the odor and chlorine as well as the dead bodies of bacteria and prevent them from coming into your home.

Now that you have purchased these items to keep your water safe and clean how are you going to put it in?  Well you can go to HERE and get a plumber to install them for you so you can have save and odor free water in your home and you can be a Happy Villager
