In nature, water is never totally pure. No matter how isolated it is from sources of contamination, it will always not be 100% pure. Minerals from soil and rocks and gases from air dissolves in water, therefore changing the characteristics and composition.
Viruses, parasites, pathogens, germs, bacteria, microbes and eggs (cysts) are collectively known as microorganism. They cause water borne diseases. Water tanks can sometimes be the breeding ground for microbes, but it is common in water from wells and surface water. Recently a new type of parasite Microorganisms are eliminated through ultra-filtration which has pore size of about 0.01 micron.
Lead is the commonest of heavy metals. It accounts for 13mg/kg of earth’s crust. With introduction of legislation restrictions in its use in fuels, water has assumed new importance as the largest controllable source of lead exposure, especially in US. As a result of its dissolution from natural sources, primarily from household plumbing systems i.e. pipes, solder and fittings that contain lead, it is therefore present in tap water.
In children, when lead, instead of essential nutrients, is presence in their bodies to make bones, muscles and brain connections, permanent harm to health can occur. It is associated with;
- Nervous system damage
- Speech and language impairment
- Decreased muscle growth
- Decreased bone growth
- Kidney damage
High level of lead is life threatening and can cause unconsciousness, seizures and death.
In adults, it leads to the following;
- High blood pressure
- Fertility problems in both men and women
- Digestive issues
- Muscle and joint pain
- Nerve disorders
- Increased chance of pregnancy

With heavy metals … Perhaps one of the most common impurities we have in our systems today is xenoestrogens, also known as man-made estrogen mimicking molecules. Xenoestrogens are …
the human body is made up mostly of water. This is an educational film created to teach people about how important water is.
Because corrosion of the plumbing systems is an important source of lead in drinking water, lead level should be measured at the tap rather than at the source.
Over the last years the EPA has increased their research on effects of these impurities in water, in order to better understanding and how to treat them. Installing a Purity Bay water filtration system will allow you to safely remove any harmful pollutants from your drinking water.
