How can you ensure you get the best water in Dubai?
In 2015, bold headlines read, “UAE Tap Water is Safe to Drink.” What the headlines should have said is, “UAE Tap Water is Safe to Drink When It Leaves the Processing Plant.” Once it enters the water system and residual water tanks that supply water to different neighbourhoods, the quality of the water may no longer be as pure and safe for use as other factors such as location of water tanks or the age of underground plumbing may have tarnished its purity on its way to your home. And the fact is, no one wants to take chances when it comes to our family’s health, especially that of our children.
Needless to say, bottled water sales are at an all-time high in Dubai and other parts of the world, even though the reported purity of bottled water vs. filtered water is questionable. Filtered water is the best water purification system for several reasons, not the least of which is because it is controlled at the point-of-use – your home or office. Your home-purified water does not go through any other manufacturing system, including bottling. It’s called “soft water,” and it makes hair and skin softer and maximizes cleaning (laundry detergent, for example).
In addition to the risk for water contamination at the hands of bottling companies (In 2014, it was reported that nearly 25,000 chemicals were found in bottled water), the bottles themselves have become an ecological nightmare, filling our landfills with plastic that will take anywhere from 700 to 1,000 years to biodegrade.
Adding insult to injury are the inflated prices charged by vendors and restaurants selling bottled water. In Dubai, a survey reported some businesses were charging 25 times the Dh1 charged by grocers for bottled water. Genaveuve Bac, a South African who has lived in the Dubai for eight years, said the problem was that there were no other options. “Most people aren’t going to drink tap water either because we’re told it’s unhealthy for us.” At one popular tourism venue in Dubai, visitors were told forced to pay Dh10 for a small bottle of water!
The Best Water in Dubai is In Your Home
When you incorporate a water filtration system, the best water in Dubai is right there, in your own home. If you have central air for cooling and heating, why not install a whole-house water purification system? Whole-house water purification is generally a more practical option which not only increases your home’s value, but also keeps everyone in the family safe and healthy, especially those young children at home who are sometimes too eager to fetch their own water from any tap in the house if left unattended.
Hotels and healthcare facilities incorporate centralized water systems to provide the best water in Dubai to better serve their guests and patients, and your family deserves no less!
In addition to lessening the risk of exposure to water-borne carcinogens (chlorine and chloramine), water filtration:
- Provides better-tasting drinking water
- Softens and soothes dry skin and hair
- Removes contaminants
- Removes drinking water odors
- Eliminates residue from dirt and sediments, fuel leaching into water supplies, industrial solvents, pesticides and herbicides, pharmaceutical drugs, and unwanted salts
- Can alleviate physical illnesses and symptoms, such as:
- allergies and accompanying red, itchy eyes
- Crohn’s disease
- eczema and psoriasis
