Boiling Water: Is It Enough?
What does boiling water remove?
Boiling water can be a great resource in times of uncertainty. Boiling water kills viruses, bacteria, and parasites that may be present in untreated or unsanitary sources of water. It doesn't however remove other contaminants that aren't as susceptible to heat as the previously mentioned disease-causing organisms are.
In order to get rid of other contaminants found in water like fluoride, aluminum, PFOAs, lead, chlorine, etc, it is important to turn to a filter. If you're concerned about bacteria, viruses, and cysts as well, you don't have to resort to boiling your water before filtering it, you can actually find a filter that does both! Our Nano Pitcher removes over 200 plus contaminants found in water and comes equipped with a nano fiber wrap around the filter itself that traps anything smaller than a micron. That means it will catch things like bacteria, viruses, and cysts which are often about a micron in size. So you get the best of both worlds.
If you're a coffee fan or a food fanatic, you can understand how quality water makes a great difference in the taste of your coffee or your food. For the best results and taste, fill up your tea kettle with our filtered water, or your pasta pot, add in all your favorites, and enjoy. (Note, you don't have to be into coffee or food to appreciate good water)
Speaking of coffee, our team highly recommends Corvus Coffee Roasters, a local favorite of ours, with a company mindset that sets it apart.
& For our pasta fans, try out this recipe from King Arthur Flour for a homemade sage butter pasta. This is a good recipe when you have some extra time, but you can always skip making the pasta yourself and use boxed pasta when life gets a little hectic. We love King Arthur Flour recipes because you don't have to scroll through to get to the good stuff.
