Do minerals remain in drinking water after filtering?

Do I have to take care of pure drinking water myself?

In our knowledge section we report in detail about the existing pollutants in drinking water. The impression that tap water is rather not suitable for human consumption is obvious. But that would be exaggerated. However, the up to 50 monitored ingredients, which are controlled by waterworks, are contrasted by up to 100,000 pollutants and impurities that can enter the environment through industry and traffic, but also as natural occurrences. Anyone who wants to protect themselves and their family from the multitude of substances should use appropriate drinking and shower water filters.

Is a drinking water and shower filter useful?

Yes, because drinking water and shower filters can be easily installed at the point of use and, in contrast to house filter systems, promise an immediate solution - for example in the case of Legionella infestation. This is particularly interesting for tenants, because they do not have to consult with their landlord, but can become active themselves. The costs are very manageable. And the high-quality drinking water and shower filters from Alb Filter offer a sustainable solution: In addition to the metal housings, you will find a large selection of replacement cartridges, suitable for the desired application. All filters are compatible with all cartridges, a shower filter can become a drinking water filter.

What do water filters filter? What can water filters do?

Drinking water filters and shower filters from Alb Filter offer different filter cartridges for different purposes. Thus numerous pollutants, heavy metals, drug residues, microplastics, bacteria and germs, but also disturbing smell and taste can be removed from tap water. Skin and hair feel pleasantly soft when showering and the causes for itching can be reduced. Users report an improvement in the appearance of their skin in case of rashes and allergies.

Is mineral water the better alternative?

Although in Germany clean and monitored drinking water comes directly from the tap, many consumers prefer bottled mineral water. However, contrary to popular belief that mineral water is the safer and healthier alternative, this can be clearly denied here.

Tap water in Germany is subject to the Drinking Water Ordinance and is constantly tested for harmful substances by water suppliers and independent institutes. 70 percent of it is extracted from groundwater resources and approx. 30 percent from surface water.

Natural mineral water, on the other hand, is defined as water extracted from greater depths of underground water resources and having a constant composition of mineral content. It is subject to the Mineral and Table Water Ordinance and must be officially recognised. However, in contrast to the Drinking Water Ordinance, this has fewer limit values. Tap water is therefore subject to much stricter controls. In terms of taste, still mineral waters hardly differ from tap water; only mineral water containing carbon dioxide tastes more intense because more minerals are dissolved in it. The taste is hardly decisive, but the massive marketing of the suppliers suggests a greater purity and healthier enjoyment.

Apart from the lower controls and thus potential health disadvantages, the CO2 footprint of mineral water in particular is significantly more negative than that of tap water. The main factors for the poor ecological balance are the filling and transport of the mineral water. There are differences, depending on packaging and transport route. But especially imported bottled water causes up to 1,000 times more environmental pollution than tap water. Nevertheless, imports continue unabated: in 2014, 1,142.8 million litres of mineral water were imported into Germany. According to the international Greendex study conducted by the National Geographic Society in 2014, Germans consumed 68% of their water from bottles, making them world champions.

The production of the bottles, their cleaning, filling and disposal further worsens the ecological balance. The same applies to the customer's decision as to whether to go shopping by car, bike or on foot.

In short: for a Berliner mineral water drinker, the average CO2 equivalent per litre of bottled water is 210 g. For tap water 0.35g are produced. If all Berliners today would decide to drink only tap water, almost 100,000 tons of CO2 could be saved per year.

Nevertheless, a large part of the German population prefers bought and bottled water. Why is that? On the one hand, we love sparkling water, which we could, however, also produce with a drinking water bubbler. On the other hand - and this is much worse - the population is increasingly losing confidence in the quality of tap water, mostly without knowing that it is actually healthier and cheaper than bottled water.

Plastic bottles will eventually be plastic garbage.

Whereas mineral water used to be sold in the typical deposit glass bottles of mineral springs, today it is mostly plastic bottles, at best returnable PET bottles, but far too often also in non-returnable bottles, which are shredded on return. Plastic bottles are a big problem for the environment and our health. Not only the poor eco-balance caused by packaging material and transport has an impact on our environment, but also the disposal and associated pollution. Therefore, please refrain from drinking water and soft drinks in plastic bottles.

bottom line

So if tap water brings health risks under certain aspects and if bottled mineral water is controlled even worse, water for drinking and showering should be freed from harmful substances on one's own responsibility. The installation of a high-quality water filter at the point of use (i.e. no table can filter with its susceptibility to germs) will therefore become increasingly important for private households.

Alb Filter's shower and drinking water filters are easy to install and can be used to treat tap water safely and efficiently at the point of use. The compact metal housings of our drinking water filters with the included cartridges are simply mounted on the tap or installed under the kitchen sink. Shower filters are screwed between shower fitting and shower hose. Both variants guarantee sustainable and reliable water treatment for a refreshing drink or shower.

Refreshing and activating

Water has a beneficial effect on our body. Our well-being already increases if we simply let ourselves float in the water. The gentle pressure, which acts evenly on the body, activates the lymphatic system. Water is also a balm for our vegetative nervous system, which controls vital functions such as blood pressure, pulse, breathing, digestion and metabolism. The release of stress hormones, such as cortisol, decreases as we get into the water. The drainage of the body is also favoured, as more blood can flow into the chest area in the water and the kidney dynamics are thus strengthened.
