Water Purification Experts Share What It Takes to Stay Hydrated Every Day, Henrietta, New York

You may have heard the old rule that you should drink eight glasses of water a day. In reality, the amount of water you need depends on several factors like age, gender, climate, and activity level. As a provider of water purification systems, Anderson Water Systems of Rochester, NY, wants to educate people on the right amount to drink on a daily basis.

You absorb a lot of water through fruits and vegetables, but you also need to hydrate throughout the day. The average man needs more water than the average woman because of their higher body mass and increased energy level. Men should drink about 13 cups of water a day while women should drink around nine. It’s easier to maintain this standard when you have clean, accessible water, and this can be achieved with a water purification system.

This standard of nine cups a day for women does not apply for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Because of the fluid that is going toward the unborn baby, pregnant women need to drink around 10 cups a day. Women who are breastfeeding need even more to produce milk and should drink about 13 cups daily.

Because children have less body mass, they do not need as much water to keep them hydrated. However, their higher energy levels still require a lot of water. Children between the ages of 4 and 8 should drink five cups of water. Nine- to 13-year-olds should drink seven to eight cups, while 14 to 18-year-olds should drink eight to 11 cups.

Water PurificationWeather also impacts how much water you should drink. During the summer, you sweat more often when outside, which means you need to replenish fluids more often to avoid hydration.

You should also drink more water when you’re physically active. Any kind of activity like sports and physical labor can make you sweat and cause dehydration. Even swimming and other water activities will dehydrate you, so keep your energy levels up by bringing a bottle with you.

Because everyone needs clean water to drink, Anderson Water Systems can install a filtration system in your home so it’s always convenient. They offer whole-house water purification and reverse-osmosis systems to ensure you stay hydrated and healthy. Contact them today at (585) 385-6610, and visit their website to learn more.
