Green Water Technologies | Legend Has It…

Green Water Technologies

Water is not a myth. We see it everywhere, and carry it with us 100% of the time. However, according to Green Water Technologies, there are a host of misconceptions regarding this clearly vital fluid. Here, the Texas-based water filtration experts answer a few common questions that cast aside a few of the most commonly misunderstood thoughts about H2O.

Q: Sports drinks are better than water for athletes, right?

Green Water Technologies: Absolutely not, with a small caveat. When you work out, whether you are an athlete or not, you lose water. This means you need to rehydrate often. The only true exception is that some long-distance runners and a few other extreme athletes may benefit from supplementing their water intake with sports drinks. This is only those who sweat for an extended time, and it has nothing to do with hydration. Sports drinks can help to replenish sodium.

Green Water Technologies | How Does Hard Water Affect Us?

Green Water Technologies

Hard, unconditioned water is a problem throughout much of the country. But, according to Green Water Technologies, it’s not a health risk. However, it does have an effect on the body and the home.

Hard, unconditioned water has 60 mg/L of calcium or more. Drinking water with high levels of this mineral – plus magnesium – can actually boost health by potentially lowering a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease mortality. However, there are many more downsides than potential perks.

Green Water Technologies

As the world struggles to grasp the first true pandemic of our lifetime, there have been many myths going around about the novel coronavirus. According to Green Water Technologies, many of these revolve around water. Here, company representatives clear up a few misconceptions.

Free Weight Management For Your Kids? Green Water Technologies Says You Have It

Green Water Technologies
If you are one of the millions of parents in the United States concerned about your children’s weight, you likely want to know ways to help them tone up. According to Green Water Technologies, there are many ways to achieve this, and none of them have to cost a proverbial arm or leg.

Green Water Technologies explains that two of the most important things you can do for your children’s waistline is to encourage them to be active and to drink plenty of water.

Physical activity burns calories and also distracts children from eating because of boredom, which, Green Water Technologies notes, is a common problem. Further, running, jumping, and playing sports helps tone the muscles and provides crucial social interaction for the youngest members of your family.

Water also plays a role in the number on the scales, and more importantly, a child’s BMI. Green Water Technologies notes that water is the fastest way to alleviate thirst, which is often confused with hunger. Further, drinking water before each meal can create a feeling of fullness. This, in turn, might lead children to eat less.

Green Water Technologies: What to do in Case of Flood

Green Water Technologies
Water is a powerful force, say the experts from Green Water Technologies. And as spring gets nearer and nearer, they say it’s a good time to review how to handle yourself in case of a flood.

Floodwater and toxins

According to Green Water Technologies, floodwater may contain extremely high levels of toxic substances. This can include raw sewage and other environmental hazards. Their first suggestion is to avoid contact if possible.

If you do have to touch floodwaters, either to secure your home or to get to safety, wash your hands as soon as possible. This is especially important before eating and drinking because, as Green Water Technologies explains, you can easily transfer fecal matter and other toxins into your body. Waterborne illnesses can cause extreme gastrointestinal distress.

How To Dig A Well | Green Water Technologies

Green Water Technologies
Whether you are moving into an area without access to public water, plan to go off the grid, or simply need supplemental water for your agricultural operation, you might need to dig a well. According to Green Water Technologies, about 15% of all people in the United States still rely on well water. Here, the Texas-based company presents basic information on the process.

According to Green Water Technologies, your first goal is to determine where, exactly, you will build your well. For this, you may need to consult with your local geological survey office. This is to ensure that there is water where you want to dig and also to make sure that you avoid things like underground utilities and septic tanks. If you are digging near a septic tank, make sure to stay at least 100 feet away to reduce cross-contamination.
