5 Benefits of a Water Filtration System

5 Benefits of a Water Filtration System

Can you trust the water that comes out of your faucets at home? After all, it’s gone through a treatment plant. Does that mean it’s definitely free of all toxins and contaminants? Sadly, the answer is no.

The Environmental Working Group maintains a list of utilities nationwide that have been cited for providing water with high concentrations of contaminants. Chemicals and microbes could still lurk in your water after it’s been treated by your municipal supplier. Similarly, if you have your own well, there’s no way to guarantee that water is pure.

However, a whole-house water filtration system will let you and your family enjoy the safest water possible. Such a system will take out all metals, germs, and other contaminants.

Here are just five of the advantages of a whole-house water filter.

Better Health

Chlorine, heavy metals, and harmful microorganisms in drinking water can lead to certain medical issues. They include the following:

  • Flare-ups of skin conditions such as eczema

  • Allergic reactions

  • Asthma attacks

  • Intestinal disorders due to parasites

Also, lead in your water is a grave health concern. With frequent exposure, lead can cause ailments, such as increased blood pressure, decreased kidney function, and reproductive problems in men and women.

Cleaner Laundry and Dishes

It’s harder for a washing machine to clean clothes if the water is filled with minerals. Plus, soap doesn’t work as well. Soon enough, unsightly mineral deposits can form on clothing.

On the other hand, pure water will keep your clothes and bedding looking great and smelling fresh. It will maintain your laundry’s bright colors, too.

In the same way, deposits can build up on dishes washed with mineral-laden water. Spotting on glassware can be a sign of hard water.

Terrific Taste

How much a month do you spend on bottled water? Bottled water is not only expensive, but it’s also a drain on our natural resources. Making bottles requires more than 17 million barrels of oil to meet America’s annual water needs. And bottled water is generally no purer than tap water.

Save yourself the expense and do the environment a favor and install a whole-house filtration system. Your water will taste just as good as that pricy bottle of Aquafina. Plus, cooking with cleaner water will improve the taste of your food and make an excellent cup of coffee.

Prevent Plumbing Problems

Obviously, water flows through your pipes every day. And, if it contains sediment and other particles, it can do real damage over time. A whole-house water filtration system removes residue and minerals from your water supply, ensuring every plumbing fixture in your home delivers the same high-quality water. Pure water is gentler on pipes as well as appliances and water heaters.

Reduced Expenses

What happens when your pipes and appliances last longer? You save money! You won’t have to repair or replace them nearly as often. You won’t need to buy new dishes and clothing as frequently, either.

You’ll also lower your household budget since you won’t need to buy water bottles. On top of that, you won’t have to purchase extra soap, which is required when tainted water makes it harder to clean things.
