Safer Drinking Water In Your Home

Safer Drinking Water


Do you know what is in your water?

The delivery of clean water to your home is important for your health.  Water treatment plants test and treat water to ensure it is safe for all your needs – drinking, cooking, cleaning, and more. However, a lot can happen to the water once it leaves the distribution plant and makes it to your home.

To make sure the water you use is as pure, safe, and healthy as possible, you might want to consider a water filtration system for your home.

A whole house water filtration system will provide a complete solution for all your water applications.  It will also eliminate or reduce contaminates, remove odors to improve taste and overall quality of your drinking water, protect your appliances, help the environment, and save money.


  1. Safer Drinking Water

Water that has been deemed “Safe” for drinking and household use is tested at the distribution plant. Water then leaves the plant and is distributed through old underground piping that can have breaks allowing for infiltration of other contaminates by the time it reaches your home. Chemicals such as Chlorine and Chloramine are added at the water facilities to prevent bacteria growth.  Safe levels of these chemicals can still cause health risks.

Filtered water is not only safer, but it tastes and smells better too.  We all know drinking water is essential to our health.  Having great tasting water will make drinking enough water easier.


  1. Healthier Baths and Showers

Contaminated water is not only unhealthy to drink, but it can be just as unhealthy to bathe and shower in.  Your body absorbs these harmful contaminants through the skin, and your lungs can inhale contaminants that evaporate in the shower steam.  Even if chemical levels are deemed safe, they can still cause skin irritation, dryness, and aggravate skin conditions such as psoriasis, and eczema.  Inhaling it can make you prone to allergies and, for those with asthma, can increase your changes of an asthma attack.  The purer your water is, the purer your health, hair, and skin will be.


  1. Reduce Potential Plumbing Issues

Even if your water is free of contaminants, mineral deposits can cause damage and calcification to your appliances, pipes, and fixtures.  Over time, it can deteriorate faucets and other water serving appliances such as dishwasher, washing machine, ice maker, etc. by breaking down rubber, clogging fixtures, and cartridges, and causing leaks.

Running cleaner filtered water through your appliances, water fixtures and pipes, will prolong the life of your plumbing fixtures, and water heater.


  1. Better for the environment

Plastic bottles pose a big threat to our environment.  They end up in our landfills and can take hundreds of years to start breaking down.  As each bottle decomposes, it leaks dangerous and harmful chemicals into our environment.  Plastic bottles are ending up in rivers, lakes, and oceans, killing wildlife.  Not to mention, the production of making the bottles is bad for the environment and atmosphere.


  1. Save Money

If you are not drinking your tap water, then you’re probably buying bottled water.  The costs to buying bottled water to drink can add up quickly.  A simple solution to cut those costs down – drink filtered water from your tap.  In the long run, you will end up saving money.

In addition to the money you will save on bottled water, you will run cleaner water though your appliances. This will make your appliances last longer, which will save you money.


The best way to ensure you have a good supply of clean, fresh, and pure water in your home, is to install a Whole House Water Filtration System.
