Home Water FiltrationPublished on April 2, 2020

There is nothing more essential in life than clean water. Not only we need water to drink, but also, for cooking and washing purposes. In the absence of clean water, we would definitely struggle to maintain our health. Every person needs to have enough water each day in a bid to have their body functioning normally, as over 70% of the body is made up of water.

It is quite normal for us to forget the significance of water as most of us are lucky enough to have access to a source of relatively clean water. Here comes the role of perception, just because your available water is considered to be suitable for consumption, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s pure and clean enough to safeguard your family and their health.

Most people today drink chlorine-treated water that contains harmful bacteria, chemicals, and other contaminants. Filtering water helps in the removal of bacteria, metals, and chemicals from water. This is where the role of home water filtration system creeps in.

There are two main options to filter water. First, get a point-of-entry water system. Second, get a filter for a single point of use. Irrespective of what you choose, both will offer quality filtered water, but the point-of-entry system is considered to be the most effective one.

Home Water Treatment System

Despite the fact that most of your filtered water consumption needs can be met with an under sink water filter, you should get a complete water filtration system, to ensure that every tap in your home has filtered water.

By having a water treatment system installed, you can easily bid farewell to odor and taste issues, chlorine, and sediments. Home water filtration systems serve as multi-stage filters with a considerably higher water output, so you can safely expect high usage and durability.

Why You Need Home Water Filtration System

Here are some of the key benefits you will get from having a home water filtration system.

Have Clean Drinking Water Anytime

When you have access to filtered water, you are pretty much sure that it is safe and healthy for drinking purposes as compared to the bottled or tap water that comes directly from the water treatment plants in your municipality.

It is important to understand that unfiltered water, even if it is coming from the water treatment plant still has contaminants, mainly lead. The common way water treatment plants deal with it is by adding chemicals such as fluoride and chlorine to the water as their treatment method.

The presence of a home water filtration system makes these chemicals and other impurities go away. The inbuilt chlorination treatment features make home water filtration system a highly effective one.

Protection of Environment

Access to safe water means no need for constant bottle purchases. Reducing plastic bottle purchases significantly helps the environment. Many bottles end up in garbage or oceans, harming ecosystems.

Better Taste of Water

Water filters play a crucial role in eradicating elements that cause drinking water to have an unpleasant taste and smell, such as chlorine and bacteria. At the same time, this system will enhance the overall purity, taste, and smell of your drinking water. The other big advantage is that it facilitates in lowering the pH level of the water.

Safeguard from Calamity

In an instance of a burst of a sewer line near your place, it can create water contamination. Having said this, you will be protected if you have an advanced home water filtration system installed for the whole house.

Less Consumption of Soap

This is the characteristic of water, which, in the absence of chemicals and natural impurities makes the water softer. The softer water doesn’t leave the minerals so this helps in reduction of soap used to clean body, dishes, and clothes. On the contrary, hard water has minerals that prevent the ionic action of soap, hence minimizing its cleaning power.

Drop in Plumbing Repair Bills

There can be a noteworthy drop in plumbing repairs which can really cut your repair bills when you use filtered water. The existence of heavy metals, minerals, and chemicals in unfiltered water can cause severe damage to your entire plumbing system.

It is vital to understand that not only pipes are affected, but also the other home appliances that use water. The common appliances include water dispenser, refrigerator ice maker, dishwasher, and washing machine.

Water filtration is an integral part when it comes to the control of chemicals that are able to cross over from water into your home. Protection of water is akin to protecting your overall health. There is absolutely no doubt that water is the giver of life. The installation of a home water filtration system ensures that you use clean water.
