Water Purification Experts Share Fascinating Facts About Water, Henrietta, New York

Water makes up more than 70% of Earth’s surface and is essential to your everyday life, but it’s not all created equal. Much of it is undrinkable for the obvious reasons — it’s saltwater or hasn’t been treated. And other water, possibly in your home, could be improved with water purification. The team at Anderson Water Systems in Rochester, NY, is committed to bringing customers clean water and has a list of things you might not know about it.

5 Interesting Facts About Water

While nearly three-fourths of the planet is covered in water, only 1% of it is safe to drink. Consider that the next time you let the faucet run while you brush your teeth. Many people take water for granted, but it’s not as plentiful as you think.

2. More Than Half the Human Body Is Water

Men’s bodies are made up of about 60% water, while women contain around 55%. By the time you feel thirsty, your body has already lost 1% of its water.

3. There’s a Black Hole Surrounded by Water in Space

It’s a lot of water, too — 140 trillion times the amount of water in the earth’s oceans. It’s more than 12 billion light-years away, however, so humans aren’t going there to drink it anytime soon.  

4. Water Is Essential for Good Health

Being properly hydrated decreases your risk of certain types of cancer, flushes out bacteria, aids digestion, prevents headaches, and even keeps your skin soft. Experts recommend drinking about half a gallon of water per day.

5. Your Household Water Could Contain Pollutants

Lead, chlorine, iron, and arsenic are just some of the pollutants you may find in your water. Lead comes primarily from homes with lead pipes, but even newer homes could have a problem — plumbing that claims to be free of the element could still contain as much as 8%. This is why it’s crucial to have a water purification system.
