When you watch the news or read stories online about the decline of our country’s water quality, it is no wonder that more and more homeowners choose to install water filtration systems. The most popular systems offer whole-home filtration to ensure that the water you drink, cook with, and bathe in is as pure and safe as possible. There are three primary types of systems in residential use including:
- Activated Carbon
- Cation Exchange
- Reverse Osmosis
Each choice has its benefits as well as some that are offered by all three. In addition, you can find these essential filtration systems in a variety of price ranges to fit every budget. No matter which type of system you select, it will offer the following four significant benefits.
All city water is processed through a water treatment plant that uses additives and filtration based on the rules and local laws governing public water supplies. But what many homeowners are finding is that their standards for healthy and good tasting water far exceed the standards of their municipality. The solution is to install a whole home water filtration system to ensure that the water you and your loved ones consume is as healthy and pure as possible. In addition, you are in control of the water quality and taste. If you notice a difference, you can check the filtration or call in a professional to verify the function of the water filter and the purity of your water.
Reduce Gastrointestinal Problems
While the municipal water treatment facility does work to purify the city water, no system is perfect. And in many cases, parasites do exist in the city water. Some consumers are ok with that minimal amount of contamination, but others are not. It could be that you have a very sensitive digestive system and are prone to gastrointestinal issues when even the slightest bacterial contamination or minimal parasite contamination is present. Or someone in your home could have a compromised immune system and reacts poorly to any contamination in their water. A whole-home water filtration system lets you control the purity of your water to eliminate these worrisome events.
If your tap water tastes awful, you will certainly not be consuming enough water each day. And that can lead to many health issues as well as not feeling at your peak. A water filtration system is a long-term solution to bad-tasking water that does not involve paying for bottles of water that you have to lug home from the grocery store. In addition, you are not contributing to the glut of plastic water bottles that are contaminating our planet.
A Solution For Skin Sensitive Humans And Pets
No one would ever consider bathing with bottled water. But for those with skin sensitivity to fluoride, chlorine, or heavy metals, tap water can be to blame for the flare-up of psoriasis and eczema. These issues related to tap water are more common in children or the elderly. However, they can be an issue for all ages. In addition, your pets can also suffer from skin allergies that are worsened by bathing in your tap water. A whole-home filtration system will remove the contaminants and allow everyone to enjoy a relaxing and soothing bath or shower.
