Keywords:water filtration, safety, contamination
Nowadays, pollution is one of the major problems of our society. Water pollution can destroy the environment. Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies that is usually a result of human activity. Given that water is polluted, some students will be forced to buy mineral water. This study was conducted at Bestlink College of the Philippines. The objective of this study was to clean water from faucets that have rust and avoid the drinker from having diseases due to unclean water. The water filtration system will purify water by removing impurities and making this water safe for everyone to drink while improving its taste. The qualitative method was used in this action research by using the descriptive research design. This study involved 50 selected grade 12 Accountancy, Business, and Management Strandstudents. Four variables, such as the effects of improper use of water filtration containers, the importance of water filtration containers, and awareness in using a water filtration container, were considered regarding the effectiveness of the water filtration container. The results of the study revealed that the water filter was extremely effective for the safety of the students. The study also showed the effects of using a water filter to ensure the students’ health and prevent them from having different illnesses or diseases that may come from the water they drink daily. Some respondents agreed that if we secure the cleanliness of the container we use, then we will not be easily contaminated by the water we drink. Water is one of the most essential and one of our basic needs in life. In short, water is one’s source of life. As a consumer, we must always secure the cleanliness of water we drink because it can make us sick if we are not careful enough about the water we drink. As water consumers, we conducted this study that may help everyone. We came up with this water filtration system that is extremely convenient to use and eco-friendly because it is made of recycled materials.
