- VELAQUA REPLACEMENT CARTRIDGE FILTER
- Nature once provided us with clean water from flowing sources such as rivers, springs, rushing brooks and streams. Today, water and air pollutants have contaminated our Earth’s water beyond our ability to cleanse it. More than 80,000 chemicals are registered for use in the U.S., with 2,000 being added annually, many will find their way into our water supply. The government regulates only 91 contaminants. Normal tap water is considered to be drinkable, until one realizes the chemicals that have been added to it. Further inland, the source quickly becomes acidic, registering as low as 5.8 on the pH scale. A human body needs to be at 7.2 on the pH scale to achieve a perfect state of balance and health. An acidic state below 7.2 may result in many health risks and complications. Carbonated soft drinks are among the most acidic beverages you can put in your body. These have an average pH of 2.5 or lower. Combined with artificial colors, sugar substitutes and other chemicals, they are among the most toxic beverages in our diet. Bottled water companies harvest water from scarce ground sources. In many cases, the water is still filled with harmful pollutants and contaminants, not to mention that most plastic bottles are not recyclable and are choking our Earth.
