Hi Guys, So I recently published a post about Opening the Third Eye. Which is if people don’t know a metaphysical concept. One which can be attributed to Meditation. In this post, I wrote about how having pure clean water is very important and why you should buy a water purifier.
To have clean water it goes without saying, but today for this post I’m going to go a step further and discuss why you should buy a water purifier.

What is a Water Purifier?
To best describe what a water purifier is I will first need to highlight what water purification is. This is a snippet from Wikipedia which I think describes the process pretty well.
Quite simply put a Water purifier is a machine that cleans water. This could be for drinking, for washing, or even for collecting scientific data. On average our bodies at any given moment contain around 60% of water, so it should never be underestimated how important our water supply is. Hence why such a thing is a sensible investment for anybody looking to buy one. For anyone that is – see my review below;
You should buy a water purifier as a step towards a healthier lifestyle. The cycle of water treatment and possible contamination isn’t something most of us concern ourselves with but the truth is that the very water that comes out of our taps can contain anything. Things like Lead, Copper, Arsenic, Nitrates, and Fluoride are just a few to name.
Even bottled water by brands like Evian, Volvic, and Nestle can be just as bad. For anybody that actually does the science, what you might find may just come as a shock. After seeing what your actual drinking water contains you may likely feel very different than you did before.
Water Purifier Vs. Water Filter
Both are 2 different processes. In the USA the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) highlights 2 major differences between Water Purification and Water Filtration.
A Water Purifier can remove all bacterial components except unexpected minerals and chemicals.
A Water Filter will remove unexpected minerals and chemicals from water, but it may fail to remove viruses and bacteria.
Of course, there is a quality aspect for the consumer market. For example, a more expensive water filter might be better than a cheaper purifier but if you have got the money I would definitely say go with the Purifier.
Where to Buy a Water Purifier
To begin with I’m going to recommend a book. For anybody with an interest in DIY, I think this looks very interesting – How to Purify Water – How To Get Drinking Water During a Crisis by Daniel Mckay. Definitely, something to think about and it’s cheap enough only $4.99 from Amazon.
Next up from Amazon again I’m going to suggest what I think looks like the best most reasonably priced Water Purifier. It’s called oddly enough The Best Water Purifier Machine by Make Water Pure. The main features are its a specially designed Water Distiller, it’s 100% Stainless Steel, and it’s the New Superior 2020 Model.
It’s priced at £128.97 on Amazon UK but is available Worldwide.
Another idea is to actually test your water out, to begin with. There may not even be anything wrong with your water at all. It might be totally fine to drink. You may even be lucky enough to have better quality tap water than you find in a plastic bottle from the shop. In fact, drinking from plastic bottles has its own set of problems. Chemicals known as EDC’s (Endocrine Disruptor Chemicals) have been found to contaminate water just from being in the bottle.
Anyway so I will just share a couple more products real quick;
1.) Water Quality Tester, Accurate and Reliable, HoneForest TDS Meter, EC Meter & Temperature Meter 3 in 1, 0-9990ppm, Ideal Water Test Meter for Drinking Water, Aquariums, etc. by HoneForest
Tests PH levels and Purity of Water with the digital meter reading. Price is $14.97 which is reasonable enough I think plus is also available in Green. This one is pretty mid-range I think. For anybody who is interested just make a note the item is called a TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) or EC meter.
2.) SimplexHealth Total Hardness Water Test Strips (50 Strips)
Maybe a less accurate method but certainly a definite way to check your tap water at home to see if it’s hard water or soft water. Soft water is safe to drink and hard water not so much;
The definition of water hardness is based on the amount of calcium it contains per litre:
– Soft water contains less than 30mg of calcium per litre (less than 30ppm)
– Moderately hard water contains between 30 and 60mg (30 to 60ppm)
– Hard water between 60 and 120mg (60 to 120ppm)
– Very hard water contains more than 120mg of calcium per litre (more than 120ppm)
So there is a saying – “You Are What You Eat” – this is true I think. If we eat a load of junk then we are going to feel lethargic and tired but if we eat healthily than we are going to feel good. This is only part of it though for me I think. As mentioned above our body is around 60% water. Is this not true if we are what we eat than are we not also what we drink?
I would say we are. Water is such an interesting thing for me. If the planet is a living thing in itself then wouldn’t water be its blood? Same as trees I think of as the planet’s lungs. I could go on about many different ideas to do with this thinking but back to the water.
You can put anything into the water. It’s what’s great about it but also one of its major flaws. It can carry some pretty nasty stuff and quite easily. For this reason, it can be made into a lethal poison. Without drowning in it, it can be very dangerous. Exactly why that purifying even filtering your water from the comfort of your own home is a good idea.
Not to scare people but something at least everyone who doesn’t do this should think about it.
