5 Reasons To Stop Drinking Tap Water

Feeling thirsty? Unless you’re a multimillionaire who swears by 7 glasses of Evian daily, tap water’s the go-to choice for most of us at home.

While it won’t kill to drink from your sink, it definitely isn't the cleanest option. So, bummer; Where do you get a decent glass of water around here? Simple - ditch the tap water for a water purifier that can serve up some healthy H20 (and more!). Here are 5 reasons why they are a worthy investment for any home.

1. Water So Clean, Even An OCD Person Would Approve

The germaphobes in all of us silently scream every time we drink straight from the tap. Unwanted substances, from flecks of rust to bacteria (we’re looking at you, E.coli) can be found in pipes and water tanks.

Yikes. That’s where water purifiers come in handy; Multiple filters systematically sift out sediments, stray debris and even micro-organisms from tap water. What's left is pure, germ-free H2O. OCD cleanliness achievement? Unlocked.

2. #NoTasteGoals

It's nothing as bad as swimming pool water, but (heads up!) tap water has traces of chlorine too, dissolved to kill any stray bacteria. Along with added fluorine and various mineral ions, it’s no surprise why your water supply tastes - well - slightly different.

Not to worry - water purifiers have filters able to remove chlorine and other chemicals that may give tap water its distinctive metallic taste, leaving a neutral flavour that’s on point with your discerning palate.

3. Skip The Health Supplements

We Singaporeans are suckers for all things health-related. (Fun Fact: Our country's best known for having the healthiest people!) Vitamin drinks, organic food, health supplements - we'd take them all, thank you very much.

Beyond hydrating your body, water purifiers can help to add in good minerals, such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium. Forget about taking daily supplement capsules - just remember to grab a glass of water every morning before you hit the door.

4. Helps You Save Money

Let’s be honest, a good water purifier isn’t something you can buy from the dollar shop. But it is a worthwhile, long-term investment that will help you save those extra pennies.

It sure beats the next best alternative - stocking up on gallons of clean, bottled water to drink. Sure, 10 cents a pop may sound cheap, but stretch it out over days, weeks and months, and you could have saved up to buy a water purifier that could last for years with a bit of maintenance.

5. Cuts You Some Housekeeping Slack

The number one reason (unless you just like tap water) to why people resort to drinking unfiltered, unboiled tap water is - drumroll, please - pure laziness.

No worries, even if you are a perpetual couch potato who cannot muster the strength to reach for a kettle, a water purifier won’t judge or leave you hanging. Conveniently placed in a kitchen, or (even better!) fitted into your sink as a separate tap dispenser, the only work you’ll need to do is turning the tap on.
