Health benefits of filtered water vs tap water

Have you ever wondered about the health benefits of filtered water

Maybe not. After all, it’s just water, right?


We’re here to tell you about the many amazing benefits of filtered water so that you can make an informed decision next time you reach for a glass.

And now for filtered water benefits.. let's go!

1. It tastes and smells better

It’s no secret that tap water often has a funky smell and an even funkier taste…

The musty odour and taste are often caused by a build-up of harmful chlorine chemicals. 

Just as in its name, the water ‘filter’ filters out the unwanted chlorine chemicals and with it, the funky smell and even funkier taste.

2. It removes deposits like chlorine and limescale

When water is pulled from its natural source, it requires decontamination with chlorine to prevent the growth of germs and harmful bacteria. 

Chlorine is the chemical of choice because of its effective decontamination. 

However, it has been found to have potentially harmful effects on humans when ingested.

Filtered water has been found to be effective in the removal of chlorine from tap water. Win!

3. It removes heavy metals

For the people that like heavy metal, you might want to stick to music.

This heavy metal is not the (somewhat) good kind… 

Just some of the types of heavy metals found in tap water include mercury, lead, arsenic and dioxins which, even in small portions, can be pretty harmful.

Once again, water filters come to the rescue and have been proven to be effective in ridding your water of potentially harmful materials.

4. It benefits skin health

Although drinking a sufficient amount of water is good for maintaining skin hydration, the difference for healthy skin lies in the filtration of the water.

With fewer, harsh chemicals and heavy metals in the water you drink, the more likely you are to see results in the overall health of your skin.

5. It removes organic contaminants 

Organic might sound like it’s good for you, however, we’re talking organic contaminants like drugs, hormones and pesticides that make their way through the public water system and straight into your body.

Gross, right?

Luckily, filtration also has the power to rid these contaminants from your drinking water before they make their way into your digestive tracts and harm your health.

Hallelujah for the health benefits of filtered water!

6. Encourages you to drink more

When you have your own filtered water cooler at home, you have easier access to cold water on tap 24/7, encouraging you and your family to drink more water!

With more water comes more hydration and with more hydration… Well, you get the gist - it’s good for you!
