Clean water is always at the forefront of people's minds during times of uncertainty and crisis. Multipure offers the peace of mind that comes from the highest quality drinking water at an affordable price, and a superior alternative to disposable plastic bottled water.
What Can I Do To Prevent COVID-19 Exposure?Lead exposure typically occurs through the ingestion of contaminated drinking water. Lead exposure can also occur According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), there are a few basic safety measures you can do to limit or prevent COVID-19 exposure:
Wash Your Hands OftenEspecially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Use soap and warm water for a minimum of 20 seconds. You can also use a hand sanitizer consisting of at least 60% alcohol. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
Social DistancingAvoid close contact with people, and stay home as much as possible.
Cover Your MouthCover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others. Remember: wearing a mask is as important for the safety of those around you as for yourself.
Clean OftenClean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
How Is COVID-19 Transmitted?The World Health Organization (WHO) says the COVID-19 virus is transmitted primarily through respiratory droplets - tiny particles produced from actions like breathing, talking, coughing, or sneezing. It can spread through direct contact with infected people and indirect contact with surfaces or objects handled by an infected person.
Can COVID-19 Spread Through Water?Fortunately, the COVID-19 virus has not yet been detected in drinking water, and the CDC states that water treatment methods that use filtration and disinfection should remove or inactivate COVID-19.
What Does NSF-Certification Mean & Why Is It Important?NSF-certification means that the Aqualuxe's performance claims - bacteria and virus purification, aesthetic contaminant filtration, health contaminant filtration, and emerging compound/incidental contaminant filtration - have been third-party tested and verified by NSF International, the premier organization for developing and testing health and safety standards around the world. It is important because it serves as proof from the world's leading testing and certification institute that the Aqualuxe does what we say it can do.
Why Is Hydration Important To Health?One of the CDC's guidelines for self-care during quarantine or if you show COVID-19 symptoms is to stay hydrated. In general, it is always a good idea to maintain proper hydration for health:
Health Benefit #1Water aids digestion and helps regulate metabolism.
Health Benefit #2Water helps remove waste and toxins.
Health Benefit #3Water helps regulate body temperature.

How Does Multipure Compare To Bottled Water? A Lot Of People Are Buying Bottled Water During The COVID-19 PandemicThere really is no comparison. While Multipure Drinking Water Systems possess NSF certifications for the broadest array of drinking water contaminants around, most bottled water is not third-party tested and certified for any contaminant treatment. In fact, most bottled water brands are simply repackaged tap water, and it has been discovered that 93% of all bottled water is contaminated with microplastic particles!

If Bottled Water Isn't Really That Good, Why Are People Buying So Much Bottled Water During This Crisis?A lot of it comes down to perception and peace of mind. People believe that bottled water is better than their tap water, and so they gain some peace of mind when they have a supply of water that is perceived to be better than what they have at home. Some people are worried that their tap water may run out; fortunately for them, municipal water supplies are incredibly robust, with a very low possibility of running out - barring the occurrence of an event that might cause catastrophic infrastructure damage, such as an earthquake.
But What About The Convenience Of Bottled Water? Is Bottled Water Really Convenient, Though?
Bottled Water Cost Can Be DeceivingIf you're talking about a single bottle of water, it's small and portable, but it's also tremendously expensive, averaging $7.57 a gallon versus $0.09 a gallon for Multipure filtered water.
Bottled Water Is Bulky & Takes Up Space At HomeIf you're talking about a case of bottled water or a large jug of bottled water, it averages to about $1.22 a gallon, but it's also very bulky. It takes up a lot of room to transport by car, and it takes up a lot of room to store in the house.
Bottled Water Is Also LimitedOne Multipure drinking water filter is the equivalent to 5,000 bottles of water. Plus, Multipure replacement filters are delivered to your home, so you can avoid the crowds to get bottled water at a supermarket.
The Perceived Convenience Of Bottled Water Comes At The Cost Of Quality & The Environment
Can You Trust Where It Comes From?Bottled water is rarely - if ever - third-party certified as to its quality, and the majority of bottled water is simply repackaged tap water.
Microplastics In Every BottleBottled water is greatly contaminated with microplastic particles - a person who only drank bottled water would ingest 130,000 microplastic particles a year.
Bottled Water Takes Lifetimes To DecomposeDisposable plastic bottles take 400-1000 years to decompose, and because less than 10% of these bottles are actually recycled, it leads to environmental disasters like the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an artificial island made of millions of tons of plastic that is twice the size of Texas and three times the size of France.
