Chromium Heavy Metal In My Tap Water, Should I Be Worried?

Recent reports in the UK have revealed that Chromium is making its way to the water that we drink at home.

It is usually used in industrial processes but because of lack of regulation it is leaching into the ground and getting into the water.

You should be worried about Chromium because it can lead to several health problems including cancer.

In fact, it is the contaminant around which the movie ‘Erin Brokovich’ starring Julia Roberts was centred.

The best way to know if you have Chromium in your drinking water is to buy a kit from the shop that you can use to test for heavy metals.

Alternatively, you can have a professional take a sample of your water and test it.

If you find that you do indeed have Chromium in your water it is important to take steps to remove it.

One of the best and cheapest ways to do that is with a ZeroWater water filter jug.

This is a water filter jug that comes with a water filter build in that strips tap water of heavy metals including Chromium.

It is an affordable way to purify your drinking water, stripping it of dangerous Chromium, and many other heavy metals as well as pathogens that can lead to illness.

All you need to do every few weeks is change the filter – it gets clogged with everything that it strips.

Why not just buy bottled water instead? After all, it has already been purified of all metals and toxins.
There are several reasons why bottled water is not the answer. The first is that unlike what water bottling companies tell you, they don’t necessarily treat water before they bottle it.

Many of the brands available in the shops come straight from the tap, which means that you are paying to drink the same stuff that comes out of your tap.

The other reason why ZeroWater filter jugs make more sense than bottled water is cost.

Bottled water is expensive – in fact, it is more expensive than petrol!

In the long term you will spend hundreds if not thousands of pounds on bottled water when you can get a ZeroWater water filter jug for less than £25.

Bottled water is also harmful for the environment because it requires oil to purify and transport and the plastic bottles that it comes in can take up to 1000 years to biodegrade.
