HOMMMWWMMMNHMMMMMHMHII Stopping Water Pollution Can Begin in the Home What can individuals, concerned about water pollution, do to prevent,it? Some water pollution is caused by the phosphates hi detergents. These phosphates act as a fertilizer to encourage the- dangerous growth of algae in pur waterways. The growth causes fish to die and turns lakes into odorous swamps. There are at least three ways people can help to reduce the polluting phosphates that pour into our waterways annually. 1. Use .low-phosphate detergents. 2. Follow manufacturers' Instructions—exactly. It has been estimated that if eVery- . one would carefully measure detergent, accordlngto the direction's on the con-. • talner, and use no more than the amount recommended, water pollution due to phosphates would be reduced one third. 3. Instead of detergent, , use phosphate-free soap. Many commercial laundries believe that soap does a better cleaning job and at lower cost than detergents. To be effective, /however, it must be used with truly soft Water. : Municipally softened water isn't soft enough. It is usually WHEN WATER DOESN'T TAStE AS good as it might a water purifier may be the answer. The purifier removes pollutants, improves palatabHIty-and the resultant dost is less than that of regularly buying bottled Water.

Increased pollution of water sources, followed by the increased use of purifying chemicals, has reduced the palatabiiity of "some ;Wate'r supplies. If water doesn't taste as good as it might, it can be improved by installing a filter' or water purifier on the cold water line. A filter can remove unwanted pollutants including chlorine. 'All pollution , isn't manmade, Nature adds 'many pollutants to water—silt; dirt, iron, sulphur, acidity. . Water conditioning equipment can effectively remove any or all of these materials from water, and .filter the water to greater clarity at the same time.
