NO ONE CAN LIVE WITHOUT WATER - FILTRATION
You’re past the dreaded Monday, you’ve cruised past Tuesday without any hiccups, and now Wednesday beckons you to celebrate the exciting midweek vibes. Make Wednesday your best day, each and every week!
Wednesday signals the middle of the working week. And although it can be associated with a lack of motivation or ambition, Hump Day is a day to refuel your Everyday Power and head full steam ahead towards the weekend.
Dan and I, have been doing Qigong along with walking for exercise. Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”).
Qigong opens the flow of energy in meridians used in acupuncture and Chinese medicine. It enhances our ability to feel the Life Force underlying the physical world and to deepen our communication with it.
Physically, slow gentle qigong movements warm tendons, ligaments, and muscles; tonify vital organs and connective tissue; and promote circulation of body fluids (blood, synovial, lymph). Thousands of studies have shown qigong effective in helping to heal life challenges ranging from high blood pressure and chronic illness to emotional frustration, mental stress, and spiritual crisis. Its great for Dan and I for it’s a great healing process for managing cancer.
Yesterday we started a new routine that focuses on opening the door of life.
This short and dynamic Qigong Flow routine focuses on opening the door of life, called the Ming Men in Chinese.
For water the most common types of household water treatment systems consist of several, so today I will focus on filtration systems. This is a water filter, a device which removes impurities from water by means of a physical barrier, chemical, and/or biological process.
Water filtration is a general term that refers to any system or process that is used to filter out particles and pollutants from water. It doesn't necessarily need to be a purifier to make the cut. Anything that removes any number of particles, sediment, bacteria, and the chlorine taste can be called water filtration. If it has a filter of any type, it's a filtration system.
There are different types of Filtration:
Filtration systems can include activated carbon charcoal filters either designed within a pitcher or included as part of a faucet-mount or tap-installed filter, ultraviolet (UV) light units, reverse osmosis, water distillers (whole system or portable counter), or another form of water treatment process. The term incorporates home filter systems, as well as much larger scale municipal or public water treatment plants. Some appliances are also designed with water filtration features such as refrigerator models which come with onboard filtered water/ice or freestanding water cooler/dispensers.
There are many different types of water filters available, and your buying decisions will be influenced by the present condition of your water. If it's not potable, you'll need a process to remove or destroy harmful bacteria, minerals, and pollutants for starters.
Having a water filter in your own home can remove these contaminants and provide you with healthy, clean drinking water. Let’s take a look at these ten great benefits of using a water filter.
One of the greatest benefits of using a water filter is the convenience. Water filters provide clean, clear water that you can use for cooking and drinking, and it’s available at the tap — right at your fingertips.
Water Filters Remove Lead
Water filters prevent harmful lead from entering your body by removing it from your water immediately before you drink it. This allows you to drink clean, safe water with peace of mind, knowing your water is lead-free.
Along with removing lead, water filters also remove harmful bacteria such as giardia and cryptosporidium that cause serious gastrointestinal issues. By removing these bacteria and preventing them from entering your body, water filters can actually reduce the risk of gastrointestinal disease by over 33 percent.
Better Tasting, Better Smelling Water
While many contaminants like lead and bacteria are harmful to the body, other contaminants like chlorine also decrease the quality of your water. Water filters remove contaminants like these, leaving your water better tasting and even better smelling.
Bottled water is expensive and uses copious amounts of plastic. Water filters provide you with fresh, great-tasting water right from your tap and save you the time and money it takes to make trips to the store for bottled water.
Healthier Immune Systems
Drinking pure water is vital for our immune systems, particularly in the immune systems of children. Water filters provide children with clean, healthy water that supports their developing immune systems.
Water Filters are the Last Line of Defense
Drinking water can contain over 2,100 toxins, and those are only the ones that we are currently aware of. Water filters provide the last line of defense for our bodies against these toxins.
Reduce the Risk of Certain Cancers
Chlorine and its associated byproducts have been linked to bladder cancer, rectal cancer and colon cancer. Water filters remove the chlorine from drinking water, thus reducing your risk of these types of cancer.
Maintain Healthy Minerals and pH Levels
While water filters remove harmful contaminants found in drinking water, solid block carbon filters still allow water to retain its healthy mineral deposits. These mineral deposits are vital for balancing and maintaining the pH levels of the water.
Many of us may be unfamiliar with all the particulars of water and its potential contaminants, but most of us do know that drinking clean water is vital for our health. By using a water filter, you are reducing the risk of disease and promoting better overall health.
Here are some stages to look for before purchasing a filtration:
The first thing that you must look in is the number of stages it features. It is good to have a 3-stage filter system because these systems are responsible for removing most of the contaminants from the water up to a great extent. Also, it depends on the type of filters a system uses. Most of the systems come with Sediment and Carbon filters. Also, some filters have three to four layers that provide great filtration.
So, it all depends on your needs and the type of water you are getting. If you only want to get rid of chlorine, sand, and rust, then you can go for two-stage filtration systems. But if other different harmful impurities are coming to your way, then the three-stage filter is a must.
Something About A Hug 🤗
It's hump day 🐪There's something in a simple hug that always warms the ♥️ heart, it welcomes us back home and makes it easier to part 🤗 HUGS
The flow rate of the filtration system also must be considered. It is ideal to have a system that can offer 10 to 40 gallons of water per minute. The higher the flow rate, the better it will be for you. The size of the filters also plays a vital role in the flow rate. So, make sure the size is decent enough.
Life of the filter
Filters having higher life span are ideal to buy. It saves your time and money as well. But the replacement cycle depends on various factors such as the flow rate, type of filter, and the amount and type of contaminants present in the tap water.
It is also essential to look at the micron rating of the filter. Many filters can block particles larger than 1 micron which make them effective. But there are also some top-notch filters that can block any impurity larger than 0.35 microns which makes them far more superior as compared to those having 1-micron capacity.
So, it depends on the contamination present in your water. If it is highly contaminated, then it is recommended to go for those that can block anything more substantial than 0.35 microns.
Installation and filter replacement
Always try to buy those whole house filtration systems that are easy to install. You may ask a plumber to fix it, but if a filter system comes with clear instructions, then it is quite possible to install the unit by yourself. Also, make sure that the cartridges are easy to replace.
Until tomorrow, whenever you work on a part, you look at the world through the filter of the character and you pick things they might use through your observations of real life.
The topic tomorrow is on water softeners, which are a device that reduces the hardness of the water. A water softener typically uses sodium or potassium ions to replace calcium and magnesium ions, the ions that create “hardness.”
