The next step: Changing the kind of water you drink

Meeting the recommended water intake levels is critical. These apps are outstanding for your health and we highly recommend them. But apps can’t monitor everything.

While the best drinking water apps will help you increase your water intake, they can’t monitor the quality of that water. Being inadequately hydrated is harmful to your health, as is drinking unclean water, so what can you do?

Water filter taps provide constant access to clean drinking water. They remove lead, mercury, nickel, chlorine, fluoride, dirt, and sediment. To get instant access to a steady stream of nutritious and clean water, install a water filtration system.
