What's in Your Water? Tips to Observe National Water Quality Month from Nautilus

Do you know what is really in the water you are using to brush your teeth, wash your hands, shower or even drink? Is bottled water really the safest way to go to ensure clean water? Since water is the staff of life, be sure that you and your family are drinking clean water all day, every day by being in the know and taking charge. The quality of your water is just as important as the quantity of water you take in.

The Good, The Bad and The Unacceptable.

The good news is that our tap water is regulated by the government. The not-so-good news is that within legal limits, contaminants ARE allowed in the water-meaning water that comes from faucets in our homes has some levels of "acceptable" pollutants. It's not clean water.

  • The EPA's 2006 efforts to put stricter standards on arsenic, (a known carcinogen) and changing it from 50 parts per billion within limit to 10 parts per billion within limit-is not zero! Even more concerning, many areas have exceeded the 10 parts per billion limit over the years.
  • Some contamination is not from man-made pollution, rather the result of minerals dissolving from weathered rocks and soils. Man-made pollutant or not, the reality is that these mineral offenders can make their way into your tap water, and you may not even know it!
  • The Government has weighted the pros and cons and accepted some of the risk, because a balance has to be struck to provide water for a decent price. The fact is that leaks or contamination are often discovered AFTER people get sick. Bythat time, you and your family may have already been exposed.
  • "Boil Alerts" sent out by the local government, often daily, ask consumers to boil water first before drinking it. While boiling water will kill bacteria; boiling water long enough can actually concentrate contaminates vs. kill them. And it is important to note, that if a chemical spill occurs or a toxic metal such as lead is found in your water, a boil alert is NOT issued. Instead, we are told to not drink, bathe or touch the water. Rarely is there a defined timeline for this. You could be without water for weeks!

How do we ensure we always have clean water available?

"Most people usually answer with drink bottled water," says Meagan Bradley, Vice President at Nautilus. "Since reports indicate that more than half of Americans drink bottled water, we too would expect it to be clean. However, there have been recalls on bottled water due to contamination. Not to mention, the cost averages about $4 per gallon of bottled water and the plastic creates tons of waste."

Meagan continues, "The only way to ensure water is pure is to simulate the same hydrologic cycle nature uses to form H2O which is the same process a Nautilus distiller uses."

  • The hydrologic cycle begins with the evaporation of water from the surface of the ocean. The evaporative phase of the cycle purifies water which then replenishes the land with freshwater. Water in its purest form is found in the vapor that rises from the Earth's surface, leaving behind any contaminants it may have collected. This process of evaporation, condensation and precipitation is known as the Hydrologic Cycle.
  • The distilling process simulates nature, turning contaminated tap water into pure, clean steam vapor that is then condensed. Liquid is placed into the boiling chamber. Heat is used to vaporize water, which leaves behind or separates fresh water from contaminants and dissolved solids. The vapor is then cooled and the water condenses back to a purified, liquid state.
  • The distillation technology effectively removes bacteria, parasites, herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals, and a whole list of synthetic chemicals and industrial pollutants. Regardless of what is found in your water, the Nautilus distiller will remove the issue, turning contaminated water into pure H2O.

Nautilus products are Made in the USA. Distill rates range from 6 to 9 gallons every 24 hours. Built to last, these distillers create the best water that money can buy.

There are no complicated hookups or plumbing installation requirements. Just unpack and plug in to any standard 110/120 volt electrical outlet.
Fill the boiling chamber with tap water, push the start button and walk away. Four hours later you can return to one full gallon of the best tasting water you can buy or produce at home.
