Improve Your Water Now! Call 866.88.Pure1

Many people consider getting refrigerator water/ice filters because they’re afraid of tap water yet want the health benefits water can provide. Most people know that water is hydrating and it helps promote weight loss and promote skin health.

While doctors consider some weight loss and appetite suppression claims to be anecdotal, there many interesting benefits to drinking water that people don't typically discuss.

Every cell in your body needs water. Your cells use the water you drink to expel waste and to absorb nutrients from your food, drink, supplements and your environment, (ie. sunlight.)

Drinking water can help to improve your cognitive function. This is because water is the perfect vehicle to deliver oxygen throughout your body. Your brain, in particular, needs large amounts of oxygen to function effectively. Drinking 8-10 cups of water daily is one easy way to make sure you get enough oxygen to your brain, improving your cognitive functioning by 30%.

Regular water consumption helps to build muscle. You can work your muscles longer before they get tired and water carries oxygen throughout your body to your different cells. These cells include your muscle cells.

Water ensures your nerves function properly by keeping your body's electrolyte levels high. When we hear the word electrolytes, we often think of sports drinks. However, water is the ultimate sports drink, helping your nerves to quickly relay messages throughout your body and brain.

Water is also important for joint health. Water keeps your joints lubricated, strong and healthy. Without complete moisture, your joints will become inflexible. With proper hydration, your joints move smoothly. Water can help reduce joint pain as well in some cases.

In so many ways, water is essential for good health while you’re young and especially as you age to prevent body system decline.

Contact us today at Pure1 and never worry about the dangers of tap water and well water again. Our environmentally friendly water filtration systems allow you to quickly and cheaply make filtered, safe and clean water for your family.

If you have been asking yourself if you should invest in a home drinking water filtration system, you are asking the wrong question. The real question is, "Why haven't you already done it?" Humans have been filtering their water for thousands of years. Why not continue this tradition and practice if it served our ancestors so well?

Early Man: It didn't take long for ancient civilizations to recognize the health benefits of removing contaminants, not to mention improving the quality of taste. They didn't have sodas and fruit drink options like we do today. Water was the main beverage for the lowly peasant as well as the pharaohs on the thrones. And they all filtered their drinking water.

Early Medicine: Hippocrates is, perhaps, the earliest source for information on ancient water purification methods. As early as 5BC the "Father of Medicine" was advising people to boil their water and filter it through cloth in order to make it taste better. Nearly two thousand years later the ceramic cartridge was developed by a famous china maker, Sir Henry Doulton, which was designed to remove bacteria from London's water. 

Today's Capabilities: Modern technology has come a long way from cloth bags and royal ceramic pottery. Now, practically all households in developed countries enjoy the convenience of purified water from multiple taps. With new purification systems designed to outfit a variety of faucet models, every family can enjoy the health benefits of even cleaner, better tasting water. So, again, the question is, "Why haven't you already done it?" Please contact us for more information on a home water filtration system that is easy to install and is as economical as it is eco-friendly.

If you own or manage a company that includes a waiting room for patients or clients, you'll want to do all that you can to make their wait enjoyable. One of the ways you can do this is by adding a water cooler for their convenience. Here are 2 reasons to do this.

1.) People will need to use it.

When people wait, especially if it's for at least several minutes, they will at times need something to drink. Some people even need to take medicine, or may want some water if they start coughing. Having a water cooler accessible to them will also make it easier on staff, so they don't need to direct people outside of the office to find water, or stop what they're doing to get a glass for them when they need it.

2.) People will see you are concerned about their needs.

When you have a water cooler available just for those in your waiting room, it will show them that you want to make them comfortable; you don't just want their money. People will be more likely to come back to you if they feel you care about them. They will see that although, yes, they do have to wait for a time, you want to accommodate them as much as possible. It's important that they are welcomed warmly not only by staff, but also by the atmosphere they are in.

At Pure1, we want to help your office run smoother, by making your water supply both filtered and convenient. Please contact us if you would like an office water cooler or filter.

Preparing for a disaster isn't something that's just for paranoid individuals or conspiracy theorists. Everyone needs to be ready for an emergency and have a "bug-in" plan in place for riding out a tough situation. One thing that is essential for such a plan is home drinking water filtration systems-here's why.

After a flood, hurricane, earthquake, or other disaster, the water supply is often one of the first things affected. It's not uncommon for local authorities to issue a "boil water" advisory or even recommend not drinking the water at all. During times like these, you can rest easy knowing your water is being filtered as thoroughly as it would be in a water treatment plant. Our filters can remove up to 99.9% of all particles .5 microns in size or larger, in addition to getting rid of municipally-added chlorine.

Having your own water supply at home means you won't have to rush out to the store looking for bottled water, something that is often in short supply after a disaster. In the long run, this will eliminate some of the stress you might feel once you realize it's time to hunker down.

While home water filters are ideal for bugging in, they can also help you prepare for bugging out. Fill a few extra water bottles from your tap and then throw a few of them in your bugout bag, car, or pet carrier, and you will be ready to take off in flash should the need ever arise.

Water is an essential item for any disaster preparedness kit. If you are planning for an emergency, please contact us to find a water filter that will meet your needs.

If you live in New York City, you can be assured that the tap water you are drinking is clean, healthy, and pure. Or can you? The question is not that clear for the city’s hundreds of thousands of Orthodox Jews.

A little over a decade ago, tiny copepods (crustaceans) have been found in New York City’s drinking water. Now, these crustaceans pose absolutely no health risk and are often microscopic. However, for Jews who keep kosher, and for whom ingesting insects is forbidden, it is another story.

According to the New York Times, there is actually a debate among Orthodox rabbis as to whether or not drinking the water is actually forbidden, since these copepods are many times too small to see. However, according to that same article, the Orthodox Union recommends that restaurants and eateries under its supervision filter their drinking water. Many private homeowners have decided to do so as well, and some water filter companies have reported up to a 500 percent increase in sales.

The reason this is an issue in New York City is because it is one of the few cities exempt from federal filtering requirements. It is also home to the largest Orthodox Jewish population in the US.

Fortunately, if you are Jewish and you keep kosher, or if you are just feeling squeamish about swallowing all those insects, we have a solution. Our filtered water coolers are perfect for your home and office. Even if you don’t keep kosher yourself, you may have Jewish employees or you may often invite Jewish guests to your home. Installing a filter will ensure that they will be able to drink your water without any regrets.

As a property manager, you already know how important it is to keep and attract good tenants. This means you must constantly be offering people more than what other landlords in your area are. One thing you may want to include in all your properties are refrigerator water/ice filters, which will gain the attention of all the right people in a number of ways.

Ensuring Good Water Quality

When looking for places to rent, people are interested in knowing more than just the type of neighborhood your property is in. Many of them never mention it, but they are also concerned about the quality of water in a given area. By offering refrigerator water and ice filters, you can alleviate a big concern right away, making it more likely that people will consider you.

Offer Something your Competition Doesn't

If you are to sell people on your rental property, you must be willing to offer something your competition doesn't. Nearly every property manager has thought of amenities such as a swimming pool or 24-hour maintenance, meaning you must come up with something different if you want to stand out. A water filter is something that everyone desires, yet is rarely offered. By placing one in all your units, you'll be giving people something they want but are unable to find elsewhere.

Improve your Reputation

Installing refrigerator water/ice filters will help you build your reputation by increasing the number of positive reviews you receive. This in turn makes it more likely that you will continue attracting good tenants for quite some time.

Installing refrigerator water/ice filters in your rental units makes good sense for a number of reasons. To find the models that are perfect for your rentals, please contact us.

Water filtration is today’s answer to landfill- clogging plastic water bottles. But did you know that home and office water filters also save you quite a bit of money in the process?

Do not be Fooled by the Mountain Ridge on the Label!

PepsiCo did not make many friends with what activists termed “misleading marketing” activities. As noted by RT News, the soft drink giant’s Aquafina brand may have sported mountaintops on the label, but its origins have less to do with mountain springs than tap water. Granted, the company reports it uses a water purification process that gets rid of some contents you might have in your drinking water from the faucet, but you still pay a steep price for the privilege.

Why Pay Extra for What You Can Get at Home or the Office?

When you invest in home and office water filters, your tap brings you great-tasting, refreshing water without the intermediary – and the steep price tag. Moreover, you do not contribute to the increasing quantities of plastic water bottles that litter landfills, streets, oceans, and drainage areas.

Making the Technology Work for You

Taking advantage of a filtration unit for your residence of place of business is quite easy.

  • Buy an under-sink filtration system. The system is so effective that it removes 99.9 percent of particulate matter measuring 0.5 microns or larger. In the process, you also reduce any lead content and remove chlorine.
  • Replace filter cartridges as needed. The typical filter handles 600 gallons of water with ease. Even so, the experts recommend switching it out after six months anyway – even if you have not yet hit that gallon mark.
  • Enjoy the savings. The cost of your water is well below what you pay at the store for the purified tap water the soft drink giants offer. You also save the environment because cartridges rely on recyclable materials for manufacturing.

Upon learning you are pregnant, the first thing you want to do is share your excitement with friends and family. After making your big announcement, the next thing you should do is to install refrigerator water/ice filters in your home. You’ll need lots of fresh water to get you through the next nine months-here are some ways in which one of our filters might benefit you.

Preventing Dehydration

As an expectant mother, not only are you eating for two, but you are drinking for two as well. Rather than eight to ten glasses of water each day, you could need as much as 12 to 13 glasses. This amount of water will help your growing baby develop properly, and reduce the degree of nausea, cramps, dizziness, and headaches you experience.

Drinking water is especially important during your third trimester, as being dehydrated can actually bring about contractions and lead to preterm labor.

Manage Discomfort

Pregnant women are more likely to become overheated, due to fluctuating hormones that cause “hot flashes” and an increase in body weight. Drinking lots of water will help you stay cool and decrease the odds of you developing a heat injury. Many women also remark that water helps them better manage symptoms such as heartburn and morning sickness, while also warding off the urinary tract infections that are common during pregnancy. Those who consume plenty of water are also less likely to experience constipation or swelling in the feet and hands.

The right water filter is essential now and after you deliver, as you’ll continue to need lots of it for breastfeeding or making formula. The sooner you have one installed the better, which is why you should contact us today.

Back pain sufferers often go to great lengths to alleviate their discomfort, often taking loads of medication or even undergoing physical therapy or surgery. One thing they often overlook is drinking more water. If you suffer from back pain, you may be surprised to know that there is a connection between staying well hydrated and the health of your discs. Installing home drinking water filtration systems could be very effective for a number of reasons-here’s why.

Discs are Comprised Mostly of Water

When human beings are born, the discs in their back consist of approximately 80% water. This is what gives the discs their sponge-like, resilient quality. As people age, that number naturally decreases, causing the discs to lose some of their ability to absorb shock. Shrinkage of the discs can occur, leading to further pressure on the surrounding nerves. When this happens, a person may experience severe back pain or even have a limited range of motion.

Drinking plenty of water each day is one of the best things you can do to prevent deterioration of the discs. Keeping the water levels inside your discs as high as possible will help them continue to do what they are supposed to do, which is absorb shock and prevent your back from becoming injured. It may even help you avoid some of the shrinkage that occurs whenever the discs are unnecessarily compressed together.

Recommended Amounts

To prevent or reduce back pain, consume between eight and ten eight-ounce glasses of water each day. You may require slightly more than that amount if you are especially achy or have recently experienced an injury. Drinking the right amount of water will be much more pleasant when you have the right filtration system in place, which is why we recommended you contact us today.

If you are adopting a pet, you have plenty of things to do. From buying food to scheduling vet visits, a lot must happen for you to get ready. One thing you may not have on your "to do" list is purchasing refrigerator water/ice filters. These filters are a must for your pet for a number of reasons.

Ensures Good Health

Your animal must drink lots of clear, fresh water each day to stay healthy. The quality of water you give your pet is just as important as the water you drink yourself when it comes to preventing disease and strengthening the immune system. It is especially important when bringing home a puppy or kitten, as you will want to make sure you give them the best start possible in life.

Prevents Dehydration

Pets can suffer from dehydration just as easily as people can. Many times, animals do not drink enough water because it doesn't taste good. When you offer your pet filtered water, you won't have to worry about him or her not wanting to drink.

Be Ready for Outings

Chances are that you and your furry friend will quickly become inseparable companions. Before heading out the door with your pet, you must first pack some essentials such as food, a leash, ID tags, and water. Getting ready to go will be easy when you have a refrigerator water/ice filter, because you can quickly fill up your water bottle and be on your way in no time.

These are just a few ways in which a refrigerator water/ice filter can benefit you and your pet. If you are planning to adopt an animal, please contact us first so that we can help you pick out the right filter.
