Water Filtration Systems provide homes with clean, soft water. While some may think of a Water Filtration System as an extravagance, they are vital to providing clean water in your home.
From health benefits to improved skin and hair, here are 7 reasons why you should get Water Filtration in your home.
Water Filtration removes hard minerals, which means that your home’s drinking water will be clean from harmful minerals. While most home water is relatively clean, minerals and toxins can still get in and make your family sick. This is even more likely with tap water from a well.
Getting a water filtration system can ensure your home is drinking clean water for health benefits. Water Filtration systems remove contaminants like parasites, bacteria, microbes, sodium, lead, and harmful compounds. Filtered water helps improve, alleviate, or avoid:
Even if you’re unsure that your drinking water is causing health issues, putting in a filtration system can guarantee improved water quality.
Water Filtration Systems remove the contaminants that can get into your water source. Contaminants like sodium can enter the system through natural processes, water treatment methods, and more. Other contaminants, like the compounds from fertilizers and other minerals, can leak into your pipes.
By installing a water filter for all your home drinking water, you will know that your whole house is getting access to clean water.
Water filtration removes harmful contaminants and minerals from your plumbing system. These include lead, calcium, phosphate, arsenic, mercury, fluoride, chloride, cyanide, and ammonia. These minerals can also damage your plumbing system.
By installing a water filter, you’ll have cleaner pipes that are less likely to be damaged by minerals. Water softeners reduce maintenance for limescale and save your plumbing system.
Water Filtration systems remove harmful contaminants that harm your appliances and affect their longevity. Limescale damage and soap scum build-up are the two big problems associated with hard water usage. The mineral build-up, which you can see, tends to happen around the water entry points and cause issues with how the product functions.
Refrigerators, dishwashers, ice machines, hot water heater tanks, and washing machines will need replacing faster than usual when hard water is present. By getting a water filtration system, you improve your appliance lifespan.
According to a study from 2009, water-softening filtration systems can extend the longevity of appliances by as much as 40%! A washing machine, for example, can last up to 11 years on soft water systems compared to 7.7 on hard water.
With more minerals in your water, it’s likelier that you’ll spend more money on water due to the build-up issue. It also costs you a lot more money to replace appliances damaged by hard water. Save your family the stress and money by installing a water filtration system before your appliances get worse for wear.
When you need access to safe, clean water, water filtration is the most cost effective in the long term. For example, some households get bottled water or use Brita filters. These other filtration systems cost more over time. Water Filtration systems are a one-time purchase, with the minimal cost of replacing a single water filter every year, saving you money in the long run.
A study from Scientific Services found that using soft water or filtered water for washing machines can reduce detergent use up to 50% and save energy.
So, in addition to saving water while using soft water and not having to replace your appliance as often, a water softener can also save on detergent and other cleaning materials!
Most people realize that the benefit of water filtration is access to soft water, which is better for your beauty regimen. Because hard minerals have been removed from the water, it is less damaging to hair follicles and can leave your hair feeling softer and healthier, leaving a healthier look.
Like the improvements to hair, users of water filtration systems can have better skin. With soft water, users will have fewer clogged pores, and skin will be less likely to dry out. If you have sensitive skin or have skin affected by dry weather, then you should consider a water filtration system. With this process, you won’t be as itchy or irritated, and your skin will be beautiful and clear.
In addition to other beauty improvements, your nails can also improve. With soft water, fewer minerals are being dissolved and, therefore, less likely to build up and cause discoloration: no more scum, problematic cuticles, and flaking skin. Filtered water can make your nail worries go away!
