Three Common Myths About Drinking Water

Our entire lives we are told that drinking plenty of water is important. Well, all of those stories that your parents, teachers, and health educators talked about is true…or is it? Below we break down three of the most common drinking water myths to help you understand what is fact and what is fiction.

Myth #1: When you feel thirsty you are considered dehydrated

When your body notices that your water is depleting, your brain sends a signal that you need to rehydrate. This does not mean that you are dehydrated but you can be if you ignore the signal. If you are working outside or playing sports, then you will need to drink more frequently to replenish the liquid that you lose when you sweat.

Myth #2: You need to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day

This myth dates back to 1945 when the U.S. Food and Nutrition Board suggested that people needed to drink 2.5 liters of water a day to be considered “healthy”. This myth was debunked when researchers began to find holes in the Food and Nutrition Boards claims. Water is more than just clear liquid you get from the sink. It is also found in fruits, vegetable, coffee, and tea. This can all contribute to healthy water intake without needing the traditional 8 glasses a day. Each person needs a different amount of water in the daily diet so there is not one overarching answer as to how much a person really should drink in a day. Your doctor can help you determine the right amount for your body and lifestyle.

Myth #3: Sports drinks are a better source of hydration than water

While well-known sports drinks are meticulously advertised and endorsed by athletes, they can often be costly and not offer the hydration your body actually needs. Not only can sports drinks provide empty calories, they can also contain mass amounts of sugar. Water delivers superb hydration with no extra sugars or carbohydrates. Water is easily absorbed by your body unlike sugary sports drinks that do not absorb into your blood stream as quickly thus delaying hydration.

Culligan cares about the quality of your drinking water. We offer a FREE water test and various systems that can help filter out contaminants* that may be in your water. From the Culligan Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System to whole house water filtration, we offer the best products to ensure that you have clean drinking water.

Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water vs. Water Filter Pitcher

What’s all the fuss about Reverse Osmosis (RO)? Why would I want to buy an RO when I could just buy a water filter pitcher? I’m glad you asked – that’s what we were just about to discuss! Let’s compare, shall we?

  1. Space. The space in your refrigerator is limited, and water filter pitchers can often be one of the biggest items in your fridge. With a reverse osmosis Under the sink reverse osmosissystem, it hooks on to your sink. This frees up space in your fridge for other things – not drinking water.
  2. Capacity. “There are some pretty big water filter pitchers out there,” you might argue. And you’re right. There are some high-capacity pitchers out there, but no matter the size, you’ll find yourself filling them up more often than you’d like. With an RO, the only thing you’ll be filling up is your glass.
  3. Availability. If you’ve ever used a water filter pitcher, you’ve seen that the filtration isn’t instant. After you fill it up (which you’ll do often – especially when you have friends over), you have to sit and wait for it to finish filtering before pouring another glass. It doesn’t take long, but you still have to wait. Wouldn’t it be better to have a reverse osmosis system to instantly give you fresh, great-tasting water at a moment’s notice?
  4. Filtration. Perhaps the most compelling difference between a water filter pitcher and an RO is that a reverse osmosis drinking water system uses a multi-stage filtration process to remove impurities (ours are typically 3‑5 stages) from your water, while pitchers usually have a single-stage carbon filter. RO drinking water systems have a carbon filter, too, but they also have additional stages to remove everything from sediment to harmful impurities like lead, radium, aesthetic chlorine, chromium‑6, and arsenic.*

Now do you see what the fuss is about? Reverse osmosis drinking water machines provide you with superior convenience and save space in your refrigerator. Contact your local Culligan Man to get more information about a customized reverse osmosis system for your home today!
