Water is the source of all life, essential for all living beings on this earth, sometimes we take the vital liquid for granted. Most of us have water available at all times, just open a faucet and instant water! That may not always be the case.
According to the WWF by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages. At the current consumption rate, the water situation will only get worse.
Unpredictable weather patterns are jeopardizing the current water reserves such as groundwater and dam reservoirs. Groundwater is a valuable resource in the United States and the rest of the world. When surface water, such as lakes and rivers, are scarce or inaccessible, groundwater is the only source of the precious liquid.
In the United States, groundwater is the source of drinking water for about half the total population and nearly all of the rural population, and it provides over 50 billion gallons per day for agricultural needs. Groundwater depletion, a term often defined as long-term water-level declines caused by sustained groundwater pumping, is a key issue associated with groundwater use. Many areas of the United States are experiencing groundwater depletion. (Source USGS)
One of the most important water reservoirs in the west of the United States, the Hoover dam, has been dwindling down consistently over the last decade. It is the source for most of the water used in the biggest agricultural zone in the USA, now it is being threatened by the diminishing water levels.
Redirection of river flows and over extraction have slowed down the dams refilling capacity. The scarcity is severely affecting crop yields and putting at risk food availability for millions of people.
Will I be affected?
If you live in an area that does not commonly suffer from droughts, water scarcity may not be affecting you directly, but at the current rate, you will feel the repercussions eventually. Limits in water spending, rationing and increased prices of bottle water are just some of the first signs that a water shortage is imminent.
Scientists warn shortages won’t affect only the regions we’d expect to be dry, water shortages would impact most of the U.S., including the central and southern Great Plains, the Southwest, and central Rocky Mountain states, as well as parts of California, the South, and the Midwest. With 40 out of 50 states expecting water shortages, it’s time to start thinking about where our water is going.
The concern for water security is making people take matters into their own hands. Installing your own water filtration system reduces your reliance on city or municipal water so you can be ready for any situation and claim water independence!

Global prices of bottled water have steadily risen in the past years. Several factors affecting the industry, such as competitive labor market, increase in cost for materials used in bottling and packaging in addition with transportation fees skyrocketing, it has never been more expensive to buy bottled water.
It makes sense to make an investment to produce your own drinking water, considering that homemade drinking water is at least 5 times cheaper than the bottled counterpart. The most reliable method to purify water to make it suitable for drinking, is reverse osmosis
A reverse osmosis system filters when pressure pushes the tap water through a semipermeable membrane that allows relatively small water molecules, but not larger molecules such as dissolved minerals, sediment and many contaminants. Bluonics offers a wide variety of reverse osmosis systems that will provide safe, good tasting water whenever you need! With so much financial turmoil and water insecurity, the decision to make your own drinking water is becoming more of a necessity rather than a commodity.
We saw this problem coming decades ago, only now we are really feeling the true effects of weather patterns disruptions. We have to protect precious water sources that provide nourishment for all. It is always worth taking cautionary steps to mitigate the impact of current or future water shortages. By installing your own filtration system, you make sure your water is safe and clean. We can always hope for things to get better, but it is more important to be prepared.
Bluonics provides for limited time free consultation session.
