When water is boiled for your morning tea or coffee, the contaminants in your tap water tend to concentrate whilst the pure water evaporates in the form of steam.
You will notice that your tea or coffee has a strange whitish film on the surface. This is what tea-ologists call the dreaded ‘Tea Scum’.
This scum completely ruins the taste and experience of your calming cuppa. Moreover, you will be ingesting the distasteful and potentially harmful contaminants found in your tap water.
By using filtered water for your future brews you will become liberated from this unpleasant ‘Tea Scum’ and free to drink your delicious and healthy tea in peace! This is important as Tea has many health benefits in itself, yet the tea scum can detract from the experience of tea drinking.
Moreover, many people use filtered water in order to make home-brewed beers.
Their beer not only has far fewer contaminants in it but it also tastes immeasurably better. Since beer is around 90% water, it makes sense that the quality and composition of the water will have a dramatic impact on the beer’s flavour.
John Woodward explains that there are three elements of water that will affect the taste of the beer: mineral composition, pH, and alkalinity. “The water’s hardness and mineral make-up will impart flavour and influence the fermentation process. The pH encourages enzymatic action in the mash and fosters the proliferation of yeast during the fermentation stage. Alkalinity creates a buffer to protect the pH from fluctuation throughout the brewing process, making sure bacteria are unable to grow and stripping excess tannin’s from the beer.”

Filtered Water is Best for Your Humidifier
People use humidifiers for a range of different reasons: to prevent dry skin, keep tropical houseplants healthy, improve allergies or sinus problems, and increase home heating.
No matter your reason for use, all humidifiers need regular maintenance and care.
Following the manufacturer’s instructions is the easiest way to ensure your health is safeguarded and the machine keeps working. Most manufacturers recommend using filtered water to prevent the build-up of micro-organisms in the environment and prevent mineral scale build-up in the humidifiers.
Steven Pray, author of the pharmacy textbook “Nonprescription Product Therapeutics,” advises that, while the steam produced by humidifiers is sterile, the microorganisms created by the use of unfiltered water can pose a threat to our health. Pray describes an illness known as “humidifier fever” caused by people breathing in these micro-organisms emitted by the humidifier. Symptoms include respiratory difficulty, coughing, fever, fatigue, body aches, tightness in the chest, unexplained weight loss and headaches.
So to protect your family from the humidifier fever illness, and your machine from disrepair, use more filtered water!
