Why should you consume purified water during monsoon

We all love the onset of rains as it brings a huge relief from the sweltering summer heat. The surroundings look fresh and spring greenery everywhere, a sight to be loved and cherished. It is that time of the year where you feel like curling at home, sipping a cup of hot tea and reading a book.

However, along with joy, monsoons also brings along the scare of water-borne diseases. It leads to an increase of bacterial and viral infections that can affect the immunity system of most of us. Moreover, humidity which comes back after showers results in major health concerns such as dehydration. Also, there are times when contaminated water gets mixed with drinking water and if consumed can lead to harmful illness such as typhoid, diarrhoea, jaundice etc. Therefore, it is important to consume purified water during monsoons.

Most of us think that drinking boiled water or cooking using boiled water can eliminate the risk of water-borne bacteria in it. Well, that’s true. But it has no effect on chlorine and does not help in removing other impurities that contaminate water at its source. Although it is the traditional method of water purification, it is only used in case of emergencies.

On the other hand, a good water purifier can significantly help in reducing the risk of waterborne diseases. Modern water purifiers come with a range of advanced technologies to remove organic and inorganic impurities present in water. Zero B’s range of advanced water purifier comes with RO and UV water purifiers offering a robust UV water treatment and water filtration system along with Iron Removal Filters that help in removing arsenic content from water and produce drinking water with reliable quality. Moreover, the purifiers separate salts and get rid of other impurities, pestic

ides, bacteria and other disease-causing viruses all the while improving the taste of the water.

So, to avoid falling ill during the monsoons, it is advisable to consume purified drinking water.
