What would you find if you were to check out a clear glass filled with water from your faucet? Probably nothing but a clear liquid, hopefully, or maybe it’s white due to some air bubbles. This water might look pretty clean and ready to drink. However, if your water is not adequately filtered or purified, even the most transparent water could contain bacteria or other contaminants invisible to the naked eye. Viruses and bacteria are microorganisms that can create health issues and diseases. However, bacteria and viruses can end up in the water you use or drink, posing significant health risks. Viruses and bacteria in the water are more common in well water than in a municipal source. However, even though municipal water providers may disinfect water, bacteria and viruses could lurk in the pipes or storage tanks. It’s essential to ensure you have adequate filtration to protect your household from viruses and bacteria in water, and unfortunately, not all filters will do the job. Viruses, Bacteria, and parasites are an invisible danger – the naked eye does not detect them, and you can’t necessarily smell or taste them either. You may not even know they’re in your water.
