WATER 101

Comparing Carbon

The main vision behind the MUV Adaptable Water Filter was to design a filter system that adapts first, to water contamination and second, to how the user intends to filter their water. We are using some very innovative filter technologies, but one that is often overlooked is the Activated Carbon Fiber (ACF). Most people think this is the same activated carbon that is found in most every other water filter on the market, but this isn’t the case.

Using Water To Create Electricity

Have you noticed how dependent upon electricity we are? The alarm that wakes us up in the morning requires electricity, so do the lights that keep us from walking into walls and the air conditioning that keeps us cool on a hot summer day. Electricity keeps our fridges running so our food doesn't spoil, it keeps our TV's running so we don't get bored and it charges our mobile devices so we can constantly stay in contact. The list could go on and on!

Can Soda and Alcohol Dehydrate You?

Seeing as 60-70% of our body is made up of water, there is a lot we must do in order to keep ourselves hydrated. It has been commonly stated that we need to drink (8) eight ounce glasses of water each day if we are to stay hydrated. This has been debated over and over again making it hard to know how much water we really should drink. Some say that there is enough water in our food to keep us hydrated while others say that we actually need more than 8 glasses a day. Which one is it?! Our suggestion; watch your urine. If your urine is dark, drink more water, if your urine is clear, slow down your intake.

Can You Drink Too Much Water?

Water is a necessity for life. We simply can’t live without it. Our bodies are full of water, it is in our bloodstream, our cells and everywhere else in between. The amount of water in the human body varies between genders. A male's body is generally made up of 60%-65% water while a female's body usually ranges from 55%-60%. Regardless of gender, that is a lot of water! It is like we are a giant jug of water sloshing back and forth as we walk.

What is activated carbon?

Activated carbon is a term for a manufactured carbon either coal-based or coconut shell-based.

Where does your tap water come from? Every morning you wake up, you brush your teeth, take a shower, make your coffee and wash your apple. All of this is done with tap water. You use it for everything you do but do you know how it gets to you or what is in it? If you are like most people then probably not, you simply trust that the water you get from your tap is clean.

How much are you spending for your water?

You drink water every day but just think, how MUCH do you use? The average household in America uses 100 gallons of water per person per day. Does that number surprise you? Everytime you shower, brush your teeth, shave, wash your food, wash your dishes, get a drink or even wash your car, you are using water. You use water all the time so it is easy to see how quickly that 100 gallons can add up. Like almost everything in life, water is not free. Just imagine every time you turn on your tap you have money falling out rather than water.
