Here’s Why Water Filter Replacement Is So Important

Has it been some time since you changed over your water filter? Do you regularly let your filter run without changing it for months on end? Had your water started to smell or taste off? Here’s why water filter replacement is so important.

If your answer is positive for all or any of the above-mentioned questions, it’s time to replace your water filters because you are in great danger. But why is it so important? There’s a lot of reasons. Let’s have a look.

Why Is It Important? 

● Unpurified Water

When you don’t change your water filter for a long time, the cartridges of your filter absorb all the contaminated elements like chlorine, zinc, lead, copper, cadmium, mercury, lead etc., beyond its capacity. There grows an extra layer on the cartridges, which deters it from purifying or slows down its functioning. 

● Hampers The Taste

The long-aged filter sometimes releases water containing a bad odor and bitter taste. That must hamper your taste bud and makes your food tasteless.

● Habitants Of Bacteria And Other Microbes

Your unchanged water filter is like a safe home for bacteria and other harmful microbes. It’s seen that bacteria colony counts in the filtered water were up to 10,000 times those in the very alarming tap water. Bacteria like E. coli and Legionella, giardia, cryptosporidium can be born there easily and make their way into your regular drinking water.

● Health Issues

When such germs contaminate your filter, you won’t be able to enjoy the purified water. Your daily foods and drinking water will be polluted, which may cause many water-borne diseases like Diarrhea & Gastroenteritis, Typhoid, Dysentery, Cholera, Meningitis. Your digestion power will decrease gradually, and these diseases may even cause your death. 

If you don’t change your water filter on time, you will face poor tasting water and put your health at risk.
